Elizabeth and the entire Shinning Tides staff were nothing short of amazing! Elizabeth was SO helpful during the entire planning process as well as the wedding day. Obviously my mind was all over the ... Read more place on my wedding day and I can't say enough how nice it was to arrive at Shining Tides and have every little thing taken care of! 10/10 would recommend!

The moment we visited Shining Tides for the first time we knew it was the place we would get married. We fell in love with the seaside charm of Mattapoisett, the rustic feel of the porch reception ... Read more area, and that this was a place, as a YMCA Camp, that supported the community! Elizabeth was fantastic to work with! She was always quick to respond to even the smallest question. She helped us coordinate everything and made sure everything looked beautiful and ran smoothly the day of. Having a point person like Elizabeth was priceless and helped relieve many of the stresses of planning a wedding! Also...sunset photos...yes, please!

My husband and I had both our ceremony and reception at Shining Tides this past July. I always dreamed of a Cape Cod wedding so when we got engaged, that’s where we started our search! After looking ... Read more at plenty of venues actually ON the Cape, we didn’t really feel drawn to any of them. They were all super expensive and felt like impersonal “wedding factories”. We decided to expand our search and made an appointment to visit Shining Tides-- thank goodness we did! This place is special and we fell in love with it almost immediately. It had everything we were looking for- quaint New England character, beautiful views, reasonable prices, outdoor/indoor ceremony and reception space, casual but elegant ambiance, as well as a meaningful purpose outside of weddings (it’s also a YMCA preschool and summer camp). When we met with Elizabeth, the wedding coordinator for Shining Tides, she made us feel so comfortable and excited to plan our wedding at Shining Tides. From the get go, she was easy to work with and extremely helpful throughout the entire planning process. She answered all of our questions promptly and went out of her way to recommend local businesses for a variety of things we needed during our wedding weekend in Mattapoisett. When the weather forecast for our wedding day was less than ideal, Elizabeth didn’t bat an eye. She did everything should could to keep our wedding vision in-tact and it all turned out beautifully (even with very gusty winds and sub 70 degree weather in late July!). We have received SO many rave reviews from our guests about this venue- from the water views, to the lawn, to the covered porch and deck, to the delicious food (Russell Morin was fantastic to work with!)- you can’t find a better place to get married if you’re looking for a quintessential New England feel. We had the wedding of our dreams and cannot recommend this venue, and Elizabeth, highly enough.
