To say our wedding at the Chalfonte was magical, would be an understatement. From the moment we booked to the day we checked out, our experience with Terry and the rest of the staff was exceptional. Terry was the perfect mix of professional and personal. She was quick to answer emails and very flexible and accommodating of our changing needs and out of the ordinary requests. She made us feel relaxed and taken care of, and confident that we could accomplish a full weekend of wedding events without hiring an outside wedding coordinator. The charm of the Chalfonte hotel is undeniable and that goes for the building as well as the staff. From the moment our guests checked in, they were treated with kindness and positivity. The check in process was easy, the rooms were clean and comfortable and the breakfast was delicious. When it came time for the big event, we were all floored by the quality of the food and wine, and the sizable portions. The scallops wrapped in bacon were some of the best I've had ever had, and they were truly the size of my hand. The crab cakes were huge and the steak was perfectly cooked. We asked if we could have a signature tequila drink, and it came out exactly as imagined. We decided to do the welcome party at the King Ed Bar and the brunch in the Magnolia room in order to get the most out of our time at the Chalfonte. This was a really good decision! This made the weekend easy for our guests and optimized our time with them, plus, the food, again, was unbelievable. Many of our friends and family have told me that ours was one of the most fun and special weddings they've every been to. I am obviously biased, but I couldn't agree more. Thank you to everyone at the Chalfonte for making our dream wedding (and on a budget no less) come true!!

Our June, 2018 wedding at the Chalfonte was nothing short of spectacular. Situated in idyllic Cape May, the Chalfonte encompasses old world charm and character that set our wedding apart. Terry Carr and her staff accommodated each moment of the booking process through the day of our wedding. Despite having a city-wide power outage (and rain!), Terry’s team seamlessly transitioned our ceremony from the beach to the reception hall without hesitation, and made sure our cocktail hour and reception were unaffected. She coordinated with all our vendors, made sure our decorations were in order, and helped our musicians set up in the right place for our guests to enjoy – her team really took the stress out of the day. The food was wonderful (our guests are still raving about everything!), the King Edward Bar poured great drinks, and the entire staff working at the Chalfonte were wonderful and kind. We are so happy to have had our wedding at the Chalfonte – it was everything we could have imagined, and more!

Exceptional wedding venue! I know it is a common review to hear, but the Chalfonte really knows how to curate the perfect Cape May wedding. The location speaks for itself - beautiful architecture, inviting wrap-around porch and food selections that are on top. We held our ceremony and reception all within the hotel grounds and I could not have been more pleased with the way the day unfolded. Our ceremony on the front porch was elegant yet casual, the cocktail hour flowed seamlessly thereafter, and the dinner reception was a blast. The staff at Chalfonte - including our wedding planner Terry Carr - went above and beyond to ensure all details were in place leading up to the wedding day and throughout the evening. Many of our guests mentioned that it was one of the best weddings they had ever been to! If I could do it all over again I would - do not hesitate to make The Chalfonte your choice for a picture-perfect wedding day.

We held my daughter’s amazing wedding at the Chalfonte. Everything was beautiful and well coordinated thanks to Terri Carr. Our guests loved meeting up on the wonderful porch. Although the weather didn’t cooperate for an outdoor ceremony, the Magnolia Room was gorgeous and provided an intimate setting for our ceremony. The food was great, I highly recommend the fried chicken! We all enjoyed hanging out at the King Ed after the reception. It was a weekend I will never forget and a perfect venue for our special day!

When looking for a wedding venue in Cape May, we knew without even having to think about it that the Chalfonte Hotel would be absolutely perfect. The setting is unbelievably picturesque, and Terry, the venue manager, is an outstanding coordinator. She worked with us every step of the way to make sure everything was organized in a timely fashion, and didn’t skip a beat when we decided to move our ceremony inside at the last moment to avoid issues with the weather. We had 85 guests and everyone complimented our choice of venue, not to mention the delicious buffet dinner! There are so many tough decisions when you’re wedding planning, but finding a venue in Cape May doesn’t have to be one of them—choose the Chalfonte and you can rest assured knowing you’re in the best of hands.

Our May 2018 wedding at the Chalfonte was a blast! We were sold on the history and character of the hotel, and Terry and her staff really delivered on the rest. Terry was a breeze to work with - her even-keeled manner was very reassuring leading up to and on the day of the event. She was great about recommending different options and flexible with our special requests. And in addition, made all the right decisions when we didn’t know what to do (like where to put all the random decorations and homemade desserts that kept multiplying in the days leading up to the event). Our guests raved about the charm of the venue and the food was great, too. And if you’re on the fence about the post wedding breakfast, go for it. It was an unexpected highlight for us - both for the amazing spread of delicious food and the chance to recap with friends and family about how great the wedding was.
