Cape Codder Resort & Spa: Weddings, restaurants, and a one-of-a-kind water park

Wedding venues, May 2017 Cape Cod LIFE |

For the ultimate wedding experience, brides- and grooms-to-be, as well as their families and friends, can enjoy all that the Cape Codder Resort & Spa has to offer. From the 30,000-square-foot water park and full-service Beach Plum Spa, to live entertainment and three onsite restaurants, the Hyannis resort offers a luxurious retreat for guests and a customizable, year-round wedding experience for couples.

“We can do anything couples want,” says Deb Catania, vice president of Catania Hospitality Group, which owns the resort. “We have a lot of flexibility, and we want to make their wedding fit their vision of their big day.”

To begin, couples can choose to have their ceremony at the Cape Codder—whether indoors in one of four function rooms, or outdoors in the new Garden Terrace, surrounded by hydrangeas and roses. “When you’re in the terrace, you feel like you’ve been transported somewhere else,” says Catania, who adds that the space can also be used to host rehearsal dinners and cocktail hours for up to 200 guests. Resort staff can even coordinate a beach ceremony to be held nearby, providing transportation to and from the Cape Codder. Prior to the ceremony, the staff at the Beach Plum Spa is available to help brides and their bridal parties look and feel their best.

For receptions, couples can dine and dance in the grand ballroom or in one of the resort’s smaller function rooms. Whether they’re looking for a casual clambake or an elegant meal featuring filet mignon or lobster, Catania says the resort’s executive chefs can create a culinary experience tailored to any couple’s taste. After the reception, guests can enjoy a nightcap at the resort’s Grand Cru Wine Bar & Grill.

Whereas some hotels offer limited guest rooms for weddings, the Cape Codder can reserve a block from its 260 rooms for any size wedding party. For newlyweds, Catania recommends the Presidential Suite, a one-bedroom suite that opens into the courtyard and features a dining room, sauna and Jacuzzi.
