Unforgettable moments: 8 Cape venues & businesses share wedding stories

A couple gets married at The Flying Bridge Restaurant in Falmouth, Ma

The Flying Bridge—an elegant  venue overlooking Falmouth Harbor

A popular “destination wedding” venue, The Flying Bridge Restaurant in Falmouth delivers when it comes to service and scenery. Overlooking beautiful Falmouth Harbor, this attractive venue also offers gorgeous views of Martha’s Vineyard. For many weddings, the bride often arrives by boat from across the harbor, making for an unforgettable sight as the boat glides in and the bride’s dress flows in the breeze.

The Flying Bridge hosts wedding ceremonies, receptions and rehearsal dinners—or all three gatherings. Guests can enjoy private rooms for either formal or informal dining, or opt for a clambake, barbecue or buffet.

The restaurant’s onsite catering and functions manager helps couples plan their perfect day, and can make recommendations regarding décor, flowers, the wedding cake and entertainment. The goal of the staff is to work with couples to customize their wedding experience and help them realize their dreams. The Flying Bridge can accommodate parties of 200, and depending on the number of guests and the time of year, provides either a waterfront reception area or a covered and heated wraparound deck.

“One of the most popular things about the Flying Bridge is our raw bar,” adds Tyler Hayes, the restaurant’s general manager. Indeed, the raw bar features freshly shucked oysters, clams on the half shell and the mouth-watering New England Platter, which boasts succulent shrimp, clams, and lobster.
