Created and maintained as a coastal treasure, these comfortable, manicured, colorful gardens offer large lawns, seasonal blooms and views of the Atlantic ocean. Sea breezes and the call of the seabirds become part of the fabric of your special day. Photos in the resort gardens provide memories for a lifetime. Steps away are wide beaches… oceanfront and on the sound… and soothing rhythms of the surf upon the shore.
Expansive lawns flow together from our patio to the sea, buffered with manicured beds of perennials and seasonal color. Private areas for ceremony, cocktail reception, and bridal party photos. Whether your planning an intimate affair or a large scale ceremony, these gardens are a uniquely special place for your big day.
Blockade Runner Beach Resort’s chefs enjoy creating fresh and artful versions of coastal favorites certain to please … farm fresh, sourced locally, with select items grown in our own nursery and gardens.
