Harborside Terrace Weddings

Ceremony: Imagine your ceremony on the White Elephant Harborside Lawn with the expanse of harbor as your backdrop.  Or get married downtown in one of the island’s quaint and historic churches. Then stroll along the cobblestone streets back to the White Elephant.  

Reception: Start the reception with our signature White Elephant Cranberry Cocktail, a sampling of our hors d’oeurves and local seafood raw bar shucked à la minute. Guests will then adjourn to dine al fresco under the awning-covered heated Terrace which overlooks the magnificent harbor.

Menus: Our wedding menus reflect the style and quality of Brant Point Gril cuisine using the freshest of local ingredients, seafood and quality steaks – all served with an exceptionally high level of service.  

Evening Continues: The wedding party can then dance into the night with the lights of the harbor as your ambient lighting.
