Lighthouse Cove offers an elegant ceremony and reception site overlooking Rehoboth Bay.

When it opened in 2019, Dewey Beach’s Lighthouse Cove Event Center immediately joined the ranks of Delaware’s most desirable venues for waterfront weddings. The beautiful property boasts a recently expanded and re-nourished beach where couples can say “I do” with their toes in the sand, as well as 14,600 square feet of flexible indoor and outdoor event space overlooking Rehoboth Bay.


Wedding parties can take advantage of an expansive ballroom accommodating more than 300 guests, a pre-event area for cocktail hours and other gatherings, and nearly 10,000 square feet of outdoor patio space where guests can take in beautiful sunsets over the bay.

The venue is part of the wider mixed-use Lighthouse Cove development, which includes Delaware’s first Hyatt Place Hotel, a selection of luxury condominiums, and Dewey Beach’s first recreational baywalk. Wedding parties have full access to the condo suites (ideal bridal-party staging areas). An on-site wedding specialist ensures all ceremonies and receptions meet couples’ highest expectations.
