In Response to Re: Venues near the ocean?
Misselwood and Tupper Manor are expensive (at least to me), but I absolutely loved the look of both when we were researching. Misselwood is in a tent and Tupper Manor is in... a manor, I suppose. They both have rental fees. We never looked in person because I figured other places would pale in comparison :o)

My apologies to the persons who have been commenting on this blog for some period of time. And, have seen these comments previously.
Aah, Misselwood and Tupper Manor once again. To the OP, you might try to access previous posts on these venues. My son graduated from Endicott so I have been to both venues. Tupper is a beautiful setting. It has a great entrance hall, the main room, and two other rooms off the main room. One is the Billard room, where I would think most of the men at the wedding would want to "hang out".
Misselwood is a very, very beautiful setting in a tent overlooking Marblehead Bay. But, there is only a small seawall
(about two feet) between Marblehead Bay and the Misselwood grounds. The setting would be absolutely gorgeous on a wonderful warm day, sun shining, calm ocean. However, we live in the Northeast. The day of my son's graduation, there was a Nor'easter - complete with snow, sleet, hail, etc.
That type of weather could also prevail on your Wedding Day. I cannot imagine what it would be like to be on the Misselwood lawn and under a tent on such a day. Also, my understanding is that for any "facilities/bathrooms", one needs to go out of the tent to access them. Great on a sunny day. A rainy day?
There also have been posts on DJ's losing their power when they were at Misselwood during inclement weather.
Finally, since Misselwood is part of Endicott, Endicott at one time had a strange Bar policy. You might want to also check that out.
I do think that Tupper/Misselwood would be expensive. I don't know who their current food service company is now. You should definitely check that out.
Just thought this might give you some points to think over.
