At the Winnetu Oceanside Resort Your Wedding Day Will Be Perfect

Your wedding is one of the most important days of your life and our Martha’s Vineyard Wedding Team is here to help create a unique and special event for you, your family, and friends. We would like to share some of the sentiments from past Winnetu wedding couples and guests with you.


“Ever since our daughter, Ali was a little girl, she wanted to be married on the Vineyard. Within weeks of her and Hunter’s engagement, she wrote me an e-mail: ‘Mom, so after going over and over it in my head, I want a Martha’s Vineyard wedding. That is my dream and where I see myself walking down the aisle.’

“Who isn’t going to try and make their little girl the happiest she can be? Luckily, my husband and I were heading to the Island a week later and toured Winnetu. While we had dined at the restaurant many times, we didn’t realize the extent of the amenities offered: a wedding and event planner, reservations manager, room blocks, activities for all ages, shuttle services to Edgartown, a magnificent food and beverage manager, and the Executive Chef – who is fabulous!

“Luckily for us, Winnetu had a date available that worked for Ali and Hunter. We worked throughout the winter, spring, and summer with the Winnetu team, and I can say it was the best experience I could have asked for. The teamwork is flawless, and their follow-ups were very prompt! Since the bride and groom reside in South Carolina, and we live in Maryland, planning a Vineyard wedding was no easy task. I couldn’t have done it without Team Winnetu! Great job and thank you!”
Brooke and Tom Hodges – Towson, MD

“My wife and I met on Martha’s Vineyard a decade ago, so we knew as soon as we were engaged that the Vineyard was the perfect place. We started looking at venues and fell in love the moment we stepped foot on the property…Planning a wedding on Martha’s Vineyard while living on the mainland is no easy task…Once we locked in our dates at the Winnetu all of these fears and concerns seemed to slowly melt away. Their dedicated team helped us map out schedules for the day of, logistics on all the transportation needs, recommendations of local vendors for music and entertainment and – with our 12 nieces and nephews – they guaranteed there would be plenty of ways to keep all the kids busy and entertained. People still talk about our wedding today as one of the best weddings they have been to because of the location, food, and entertainment.

“Overall, we couldn’t have been more impressed with the planning, services, preparation, and execution of the entire weekend. Details that we had never even thought of…were seamlessly taken care of for us in advance. Not one of our 100 guests had a negative thing to say all weekend, and we still receive compliments to this day on how excellent the food was. I can honestly say that there is nothing I would go back and change about my wedding day even if I could, and we will be customers at the Winnetu for years to come.”
Mimi and Dan O’Toole – Weymouth, MA

“We knew that the Winnetu was a special place when we first visited a little over a year ago and now, with our wedding behind us, we couldn’t have imagined a more perfect setting for our celebration.

“The Winnetu grounds are gorgeous and The Dunes reception space is so beautiful…We loved that there was really no need for much extra decor, as the space offers a cozy, intimate feel on its own. Our ceremony and reception were exactly what we had envisioned, and our family and friends had an amazing time. We’ve had every guest tell us that the food was delicious, that the staff’s exceptional professionalism and friendliness will long be remembered, and that it was the best wedding they’ve ever attended. Needless to say, we couldn’t be happier with the way things turned out.

“Thank you so much for your help and efforts in making every moment of our wedding so special. It was a truly magical day that Mike and I will never forget.”
Nicole & Mike Ramian – Rutherford, NJ

“We were married in June and chose the Winnetu to host a number of wedding related events, our reception included. The entire team – from Events, to Reservations, to the Front Desk , and the restaurant – were simply amazing to work with. The team provided a full suite of dedicated services that helped us map out schedules, logistics and even fun activities for the guests outside of wedding events. In addition to coordination assistance, they also provided fabulous vendor recommendations that were unique and fit exactly into our vision. This made planning the wedding, while living in Manhattan, much easier than we anticipated. We couldn’t have been more impressed with the events team and their attention to every detail (even things we hadn’t thought of)! We felt like part of the family from the time we first toured the Resort to the end of our wedding weekend. Our 115 guests could not say enough about the beautiful grounds and the over-the-top amazing food. We loved every moment of our wedding on Martha’s Vineyard and now look forward to our new tradition of taking many trips back to the Winnetu!”
