With miles of beautiful beaches and scenic bay views, Ocean City has become one of the top wedding planning destinations. Brooke Popovec grew up going to Ocean City and always knew she wanted to get married on the beach. “So that was my fairytale, my fairytale dream,” Popovec said.That dream came true on May 10, when she married her now husband Mike in a beautiful seaside wedding planning. “I could not have asked for a better day,” Popovec said. This day was planned by Katina Dawson with A Sweet Affair Wedding and Events.”So many people come to the region that they were vacationing here growing up and there is nostalgia,” Dawson said. She said Ocean City has a lot to offer when it comes to weddings. “Whether it’s beachfront, beautiful bay sunsets, golf courses, indoor ballrooms, there’s a lot to offer for every couple,” Dawson said.And these venues can hold parties of all sizes, wedding planner Jodie Noonam, owner of Barefoot Beach Bride, says Ocean City’s location is another big draw. “Many couples like to get married, but they don’t want to make expensive airline tickets, hotel rooms, so they can travel and simplify,” Noonam said.And while Jodie said summer tends to be more popular for vows in Ocean City, her favorite time of year to host a wedding is fall. “The sunset is beautiful, the temperatures are perfect, the beaches are not so crowded,” Noonam said. Which is good news, considering that most people, like the popovecs, want their ceremony to be held on the beach.
