Vendor Endorsement

"I have photographed a few times at the Grand Hotel Cape May and always thought they did a lovely job creating a wonderful wedding experience for their couples. This past January, they did something that showed just how above and beyond they go to provide excellent service to their couples. We had an all-out blizzard, and there was a wedding party staying at the hotel. They weren't actually getting married there, they were just staying there. The location where the wedding was supposed to take place had to (for very good reasons of safety) cancel on them two days before. You know how the Grand Hotel handled that? They gave this couple a wedding. On almost no notice. This could have been a disaster for the couple, but The Grand came through and did such an amazing job that the couple has nothing but good memories of their wedding day. It definitely could have gone another way. To cap it all off, at the end of the night when it wasn't safe for the vendors to go home, they put us up without charge. I deal with venues all the time, because I shoot about 60 weddings a year. The Grand Hotel is one of the few that seem to genuinely care for not only their clients, but their vendors as well. I highly recommend them for weddings, events, or just a lovely stay on the water." -Michael Chadwick Photography


"...Look no where else"

"The Grand was AMAZING!!! We live in Pittsburgh and it was no problem. Katelyn rocks! If you are looking to have a wedding in cape may look no where else." -Natalie 

"...She was not only a wedding planner, but a friend throughout the entire process"

"I couldn’t have made a better decision in choosing our wedding venue. It was an easy decision for me as my parents had their wedding reception there 38 years prior so The Grand held a special place in our hearts from the start. However, had they not been married there, I still would’ve chosen The Grand. I was born in raised in Cape May and love everything about the town. The Grand is the only place in Cape May that seats over 200 people with a view of the ocean from the room where the reception is held. The view from the Grand Ballroom is absolutely beautiful and you can see the ocean from every angle. We got married June 3rd and started planning about a year in advance. Katlyn Mogavero is absolutely AMAZING. She is friendly, professional, charismatic, and incredibly sweet! I was a relatively laid back bride so we didn’t have a ton of unnecessary communication in the months leading up to the wedding but I imagine that had I been more hands on, she would’ve been there to assist in any way she could. About a month before the wedding I started realizing that there were several details I had yet to figure out and started reaching out to Katlyn constantly. She was always there to help with my decisions and offer advice. The day before the wedding, when I realized I still hadn’t printed out signs for our drink specials, memory table, etc. —she offered to design and print them for me on card stock saving me time, aggravation and last minute stress. She was not only our “wedding planner” but a friend throughout the entire process. She really felt like a part of the family and besides being amazing at her job, she’s so much fun to be around and made the process that much better just by being herself. Everything at the Grand was executed with perfection. Our guests raved about the food and the view!! There was not one single hiccup and we could not have picked a better location for our special day. We love the Grand and Katlyn and will certainly keep coming" -Victoria
