Thomas & Melissa of Poughkeepsie, NY

My husband and I decided to get married in Ocean City at the last minute which only gave us 3 1/2 months to plan a destination wedding. We live in New York, so I thought this was going to be a challenge. Sean and Cassandra were very helpful and answered all my questions in a timely manner. A week before my wedding like all crazy brides I was checking the weather every 10 min and saw rain the day I was gonna get married. I was very happy and relieved that Rox is willing to work with you to insure you have your beach ceremony, that is one of the reason I chose them for my big day. I wasn’t going all the way to Ocean City NOT to have a beach ceremony!!.lol The weather ended up being I think, the best all summer! Sean was wonderful and everything went as planned. I couldn’t ask for a more beautiful day. My friends and family were completely impressed with the set up, music and photographer and it’s hard to impress a bunch of New Yorkers..lol

If you are looking for a stress free, perfect beach wedding, Rox is absolutely the way to go! Sean and Cassandra made it so easy to plan our wedding from 4 hours away, and were there to answer questions at any time I needed them; even up until the day before we were married on the Ocean City beach. Leesa was also an amazing photographer; she allowed me to send her ideas for images that I wanted captured that day, and they came out beautifully. Thanks again for the perfect wedding!

Blair & Brittany of Ballston Spa, NY

My husband and I decided to have a simple wedding with just the three of us (Us two and our daughter). We had little money, yet wanted something nice. I found Sean online and, after talking to him for a few days, decided it would be a great choice to use their services. He was really easy to contact and made the planning process seem so easy. He took all of the stress out of the wedding. We were able to pick everything. He sent us a booklet where we could pick everything he said and everything we said to each other. It made everything so much more stress-free. We were married on the Ocean City beach with a simple ceremony in front of our hotel on 15th street. The view was gorgeous and he made it fun. Everyone who looks at our pictures sees how happy we are and how nice the wedding looked. We couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful setting or a much friendlier Minister for our wedding. Thank you Sean and Rox Beach for making our day so special!

Ryan & Chaelyn of Lee's Summit, MO

Rox Beach was absolutely perfect through the entire planning period and the wedding itself. Anytime I had questions, either Cassandra or Sean would get back to me within the day. Ocean City is a beautiful place to get married. I had mine early in the morning, and the photographer was able to get the pictures we wanted without any of the beachgoers in the background. I was also able to request a father/daughter dance after my husband and I’s first dance. Anything I wanted they were able to accommodate. This really is a great company and they want your day to be perfect.

We couldn’t have asked for a better experience

Rob & Ashley of Follansbee, WV

I found Sean Rox on the internet while I was doing research for my Ocean City beach wedding. We wanted to have a simple but beautiful wedding. I was impressed with all that they have to offer on their site, as far as you can pick any package (as much or as little) to fit your style/wants. We picked the minister service with 1hr of photography. It was perfect!! Any questions we had along the way Sean and Cassandra were just a simple phone call or email away to promptly answer them. They made our wedding day not only beautiful but Completely care-free!! We decided not to write our own vows and the one’s that he offered were beautiful and very meaningful! Our photographer Leesa  took every want and suggestion we had and captured the most breathtaking wedding photos we had ever seen!!! My father-in-law, who usually doesn’t enjoy weddings, said it was “The best wedding he had ever been to!” We would get married in Ocean City a million times over with the help of Rox Beach Weddings!!

Ocean City Lighthouse Club Wedding
Marie & Doug of Philadelphia, PA

My husband and I wanted a small and personal ceremony for just the two of us. Sean helped us to plan our special day including how to apply for the license and get married in Ocean City Maryland since we live out of state. Our ceremony was held at the Lighthouse Hotel (our favorite place) and it was personal, heartfelt and everything we hoped it would be. Our photographer was friendly and fun. The photos he took are outstanding. We could not be happier with our experience with Sean and his team.

Lindsay & Alex of St. Cloud, FL

Sean and Cassandra made our, what a lot of brides refer to as the “happiest, most stressful” days of their lives, everything but that! We planned a wedding from out of town, and never even had to visit. Everything was done over the phone and via email, and was nothing less than perfect. They personalized our special day and met our vision to a tee, even during the countdown and arrival of their first baby girl. We cannot recommend their professionalism and services enough to anyone getting married on the Ocean City beach!! Thank you again, Sean and Cassandra!

Married at the OC Inlet
Angela & Jeremie of Paxinos, PA

Sean married us 10 years ago. We decided to renew our vows and looked him up to do our vow renewal in Ocean City, Md.  We were married at the OC Inlet in 2007. Both times working with Sean were easy and wonderful! Very easy going and professional. We could not afford professional pictures when we got married but did do them for our vow renewal. Our photographer was very professional and a lot of fun! Our pictures are beautiful! We hope they will be around for our 20th! Very highly recommend Rox Beach Weddings for a great wedding experience

Sean and my husband planned everything over the phone and the vow renewal ceremony was amazing! He even helped him with a florist! We had a beautiful casual sunrise vow renewal ceremony! I’d recommend them to anyone planning a beach wedding!

Getting Married in Ocean City is Fun!
Brittany & Josh of Stephens City, VA

My husband and I were married in Ocean City Maryland at 9:00 a.m. on August 6, 2011 and used Rox’s company to handle the ceremony. It was one of the best decisions! Once we sent in our deposit, set a date and location Sean mailed us a wedding planning guide & catalog where we got to choose EVERYTHING about the ceremony. There really was not much communication after everything was set through the week of the wedding, but that was because it was all taken care of but if I had a question, he or Cassandra were quick to respond. The set-up, photography, music and tear down were all taken care of; all we had to do was show up and get married on the OC beach. My family were all impressed and pleased with the way it went and Sean’s professionalism and kindness left me without a single worry that morning! We highly recommend Sean to anyone looking to get back to what a wedding is about… the man and wife starting their marriage and lives together without all the unnecessary drama! (If we ever renew our vows, we will be back!)

Marissa & Greg of Havre de Grace, MD

We were married on October 15th, 2011 in Ocean City, Maryland. We had Sean Rox as the  officiant and his wife Cassandra Rox as the photographer. Both did a fantastic job. I couldn’t have asked for anything more. I really recommend getting married on the Maryland beach or a destination wedding of any kind. It is so incredibly stress free and much less expensive than a traditional wedding. My husband and I had such a wonderful day. Sean and Cassandra’s website gives you all the information you need. I highly, highly recommend them both.

Joseph & Amanda of Wyoming, PA

On 6/26/2011 he popped the question. When planning our annual OCMD vacation he saw an add in the OC Visitors guide for Rox weddings. We set up a meeting with this company while on vacation. After sitting down with Sean and Cassandra we knew this was what we wanted to do. They make you feel welcome and keep your mind at ease. They have everything covered and have all the answers to any brides questions. So on July 18,2012 @ 8:10 am with the breeze in our hair, sun on our back and toes in the sand we were married on the Ocean City Maryland beach as Mr. & Mrs. Speicher. It was better than what we dreamed of. We look forward to renewing our vows in a few years with them. Thank you Sean, Cassandra and the Rox Team

More Married in Ocean City Stories

My husband and I said “I do” on October 12, 2013 on the beach in Ocean City, MD. When we got engaged, I knew I wanted our wedding to be unique. In our town there are very few options, and we had 2 other couples, very close friends, who were engaged and planning weddings around the same time as ours. We vacationed in Ocean City in July of 2012, about a month after our engagement, and started thinking — wouldn’t it be nice to get married on the Ocean City beach? Then we realized that this was our wedding, this was our special day. We could do whatever we wanted! It was a liberating thought, but terrifying for a bride-to-be with NO idea where to start. When I started googling options, Rox Beach was one of the first to come up. The reviews I read were all fantastic, so I requested information online and was happy to receive my booklet a few days later. In January, we decided to take a trip to check out some beach rentals and possible reception locations. I emailed Sean the day before and he was quick to respond, setting up a meeting with us during our trip. Sean and Cassandra made us feel right at home and answered all of our questions, making suggestions for us when we had no idea what direction to go in. We booked with them that day, paid our deposit, and started planning our ceremony (which was incredibly easy with the book they provided!). We got to OC a few days prior to our wedding date. It was raining. Actually, it was pouring. For 3 days, it poured. I was devastated, and constantly checking the hourly forecast for our wedding day to see if there was ANY chance my ceremony wasn’t going to be rained out. The day before, Sean called to see how I was holding up. I expressed my concerns (and by expressed my concerns, I mean cried like a baby on the phone with him) and he was absolutely fantastic. He reassured me that, no matter what, my day would be perfect. He went over the benefits of a rainy day – less beach traffic, better pictures, easier to walk in the sand, maybe even a rainbow. I felt 100x better after that conversation with him. The morning of – no rain! Sean’s crew set up on the beach right where I could see them from my hotel room. He met with the guys and then came and explained everything to girls prior to the ceremony starting. He didn’t even flinch when one of my bridesmaids lost her bouquet and everything was put on hold. The ceremony music was perfect and he officiated with such passion and excitement. I couldn’t have asked for anything more! Oh, and we didn’t have a drop of rain until 4 hours later! It was truly a perfect day. I absolutely have no reservations when recommending Rox Weddings for getting married on the OC beach! They are the best at what they do! Thank you, Sean and Cassandra, for giving us the wedding of our dreams!!

Torilyn & Michael of Elizaville, NY

My husband and I love the beach. He bought a place there in 2012. We go to the beach just about every weekend. When we got engaged, I told him that I wanted to get married on the Maryland beach since we both love it there so much. He agreed. So we started googling and found Rox Beach Weddings. After reading the reviews, I gave them a call. They were absolutely wonderful to work with. As a bride, you want everything to go well so you have a lot of questions to ask. He answered all of them and I’m sure I asked a few questions twice. Lol The ceremony was great and Sean did a wonderful job. He makes things so easy for the bride and groom. Thank you so much for a wonderful ceremony!!!

Kristina & James of Sunbury, PA

Dreams do come true! When we got engaged we both knew getting married on the beach in Ocean City was best for for us, but had no idea how to go about all the tasks- especially being out of town! Sean and Cassandra are simply amazing to work with, and are so very sweet. Every time I spoke to them I felt so comfortable and knew it was going to be great. Their website is wonderful as well, and really helps you locate everything you could need from flowers, and venues, to getting your marriage license in Maryland. We can truly say the day of our wedding went according to plan, and it was because of you! Brides & Grooms I promise you, if you stick with Rox your day will be wonderful and worry free! THANK YOU!

Shannon & Garrett of Turnersville, NJ

Sean Rox was great! I’d recommend his services to any bride, and especially any bride planning on getting married at the beach! He was helpful in getting all of us lined up properly for the ceremony and he was understanding of the delay in ceremony time due to our guests transportation issues. He kept us all calm and was very professional, cool and collected!

Natalie & Jason of Parkville, MD

My husband and I had already planned on a September 2018 wedding. We had decided to go with Rox Beach weddings and had reserved the date. Due to health reasons, we had to very abruptly move up our date and was completely amazed and appreciative that Sean offered to marry us that following week so that we could still get married on the Ocean City beach. It may not have been exactly what we planned but I couldn’t have asked for a better day.
