We had to cancel our large wedding due to COVID. My favorite place is the beach, so we decided an open air wedding with our close friends and family would be a great alternative. Sean was able to accommodate us and marry us on our original wedding date, even though he had another wedding that day. He was great to answer us right away when we had questions! We were able to pick our own vows, our own music, and even have our first dance as husband and wife on the beach. Planning was very stress-free and it turned out beautiful! Sean was very patient, organized, and personable! I would definitely recommend Rox Beach Weddings if you are planning an Ocean City beach wedding!
I absolutely loved working with Rox Beach Weddings. Not only are they affordable, but they made everything stress-free and perfect. Sean made me feel so at ease even though our wedding day was slightly rainy and windy. It was beautiful and I wouldn’t change one thing about our day. I live in Pennsylvania and they made it a breeze planning an Ocean City wedding from a few states away.
Rox Beach Weddings did our ocean city beach wedding on 8/16/14. First they provided us with a very easy to use ceremony packet that allowed us to pick which ceremony fit us better, and even further personalize it with our own thoughts on what we wanted to say. Sean was wonderful to work with! He helped fit all the unique parts of our ceremony, including our own personal vows, and made it flow beautifully! Whenever I had a question for Sean or Cassandra, they emailed back so quickly! They were so easy to get in contact with, which made me feel 100% confident in them on the wedding day. The set up was really great for our ceremony, they did the set up, break down, and provided the processional and recessional music, and it all looked gorgeous! Sean did a great job officiating the ceremony, he was loud and clear, for the all the guests to hear, and very fun to work with. Cassandra was my photographer, and she did a wonderful job!! She captured some of the most beautiful moments, and she helped me have a great time! She even stayed an extra 20 minutes, because we were delayed in putting our ice skates on for some ice skating shots for our reception. All of our photos are beautiful! Thank you Rox Beach Weddings! -Mr & Mrs Franklin
We had the most perfect beach wedding thanks to Sean & Cassandra. They were very respectful, answered my hundreds of questions with no hesitation. As we were refused our wedding from a different planner Sean welcomed me and my wife with open arms. We planned this all remotely as we do not live in Ocean City and it couldn’t of been more perfect. Thank you Sean, Cassandra, and Simona the photographer that captured our beautiful day. She was so funny and unlike other photographers made us feel comfortable and welcome. I highly recommend them as our experience was one of a kind exactly what we were looking for.
We go to Ocean City Maryland every year, usually for the car cruise in May. Found Rox Beach Weddings in the vacation guide brochure in the lobby of the hotel we were staying in. Reviews were great, I’ve always wanted a beach wedding, so we emailed them that evening, and when we arrived home 3 days later, their book was in our mailbox. Sean & Cassandra are wonderful people. Talked to them a few times over the phone until we finally met them to finalize the wedding. A year later Sean performed a sunrise ceremony, on the first day of the car cruise, and everything was perfect. Cassandra photographed the wedding, and sent us a disk with around 270 pics, which came out perfect, so clear. We also purchased the 1 hour of video, and received 3 personalized dvds, which make me tear up everytime i watch it. The day before the ceremony the Holiday Inn called me, which is where we were having the reception, to tell me the fog was very thick and did we have a backup plan for the ceremony because the weather didn’t look too promising. I got a little upset, and within 5 minutes Sean called me to finalize some things for the ceremony and asked what was wrong. He reassured me that the fog would lift, there will be a sunrise, and it will be a perfect morning, we do not need a backup plan. He made me feel so much better, and guess what, he was right. Woke up and the fog was gone and there was a sunrise. Sean & Cassandra then joined us for a breakfast buffet at the Holiday Inn, and shared in a champagne toast. They fit right in with our family and friends. Being from Pa. I wasn’t sure even where to start for a beach wedding, but i must say, just sending that initial email for one of their catalogs, and then making that phone call to them, everything just fell into place after that. I would recommend Rox Beach Weddings to anyone who is considering an Ocean City beach wedding. The ceremony was perfect, people love our photos from the wedding, and the video is def a keepsake to watch again and again. I’m not one for spending alot of money, and for everything we got on our special day, was well worth the money spent. We saved alot by having a beach wedding. Sean & Cassandra did help to make our day stress free and they took care of everything. Joe and I will continue to keep in touch with them because once you meet these two they are so kind and inviting, they are no longer just a wedding service, they are our new friends.
They are really a great company to work with. Sean answered 18 million questions all the way from NJ and was super helpful. We had a small, intimate beach wedding and Sean and his crew really went out if their way to capture that vibe. We loooooooved our wedding photos and Leesa, our photographer, was so sweet. All of the recommendations for hair and makeup etc were great. I really loved the whole experience and highly recommend Rox Beach Weddings.
I am a busy professional who quite frankly wanted to get married but I had little energy for planning a wedding. I did a google search and found several wedding planners in Ocean City but what stood out was Rox Beach Wedding because the reviews were fabulous so I contacted them one snowy day in January. Sean Rox answered the phone that day. By the time we hung up, I knew I found my planner. He is warm, engaging and very knowledgeable about OC weddings, vendors, licensing, the weather forecasts etc.. They make it as “one-stop” as possible. We selected the Casablanca package which included the officiant, Sean, the beautiful set-up, DJ, photographer, Lisa, who is awesome, a video, options for the vows which were perfect and you can even customize if you’d like. Our pictures were gorgeous, our video was amazing, and the day was virtually stress free. Brides – if you are busy like me and don’t like to sweat the details, you must call Rox Beach. BTW: I changed my date 3 times in a 30 min period, calling Sean each time, and he was so gracious each call. I even selected May 6th which happened to be Sean and Cassandra’s wedding anniversary! But he said, no problem, we expect this – no worries! What a great couple! Thank you for such a wonderful experience on a day that should be so special but is often filled with anxiety. You truly took all the anxiety out of our day to make the experience what it should be: All about the love between the couple!
Sean and Cassandra were so reassuring through the whole process, from reserving our date, to the big day. Everything went smooth, with plenty of communication in case of any questions! We would recommend Rox Beach Weddings to anyone looking to go in that direction for their big day!
Sean and Cassandra were great. Very calm and ready to handle anything issue that came their way – like delayed marriage license, tropical storm, and tornado warnings. They provided outstanding customer service in both wedding planning and quality of pictures. Highly recommend Rox Beach Weddings – Cindy and Ron Harris.
My husband and I got married on August 1, 2011. We had originally set our date for July 2012 but on Memorial Day in the summer of 2011, we decided that this August would be a better idea. We had already been in contact with Sean and Cassandra Rox so I e-mailed them and asked them if we could change the wedding date, they immediately marked us in their calendar. Neither my husband nor I had ever been to Ocean City so we had a lot of questions for Sean and Cassandra and they were more than willing to assist us through e-mail, phone calls, and we even visited with them in the comfort of their own home twice. They were extremely welcoming and more helpful than I can explain. The photographs turned out perfect and Sean did an amazing job as the wedding officiant. As a matter of fact, he was so lenient that he allowed me to write part of the ceremony! Everything was perfect at our wedding and because of these two, Ocean City will always hold a place in my heart! My husband and I both came back to West Virginia with no regrets and wonderful memories of the beach!
Rox Beach weddings made my dream wedding day come true! I was worried about planning a beach wedding from Pittsburgh, PA via the phone and email. But listen ladies, Sean and Cassandra are the best! They were available to answers my questions, help with the planning, make suggestions with other vendors, and even helped get my wedding pictures to me super quick for my picnic reception back in PA. The beach setup was beautiful and everything went as planned. I would strongly recommend their services for anyone planning a beach wedding in Ocean City.
Phenomenal sunset wedding!
Working with Rox Beach was super easy and affordable. Sean and his staff made everything a dream come true. Our photographer was wonderful as well I’ve looked at my wedding pictures everyday since the day I’ve got them. My wedding was put together in 4 months that’s how easy Sean made it. 7:30 Sunset wedding, Great weather, with a pretty much empty beach what more could I have asked for.
Great Destination Wedding in OCMD!
I highly recommend Rox Beach Weddings for anyone looking to have a beach wedding in OCMD! From start to finish the process was a cinch. Sean communicated everything in a timely manner and we were able to pick the style of ceremony/music/vows prior to our big day. Everything was set up on time and there were no issues whatsoever. The photos came out amazing as well. Thank you for making this day so memorable!
Sean Rox made my day amazing!
I planned our beach wedding through Rox Beach weddings about 2 months prior to getting married. During those 2 months I had an abundance of things happen in my life that were just terrible. One being my father being involved in a motorcycle accident that took his leg & had to have brain surgery. I shared these events with Sean & Cassandra & they were so great about understanding my chaotic life! Not only did Sean come to my room 30 minutes before my ceremony with a photographer that he gifted us, he also was so patient and kind to us. My bridesmaids & my husbands groomsmen were late for the ceremony so they weren’t there when we needed them & Sean was so understanding & made the ceremony so great. I would 100% Recommend anyone use them! I will never forget that day & trust me when I say it would’ve been a disaster without their help!
My husband and I were married in Ocean City Maryland on July 31st of 2012. We both wanted a beach wedding so we starting looking into it and we found Sean & Cassandra. They were both wonderful to work with, they listened to our ideas that we had and helped to make our dreams come true! Their photographers’ were great too, the pictures that they took of us were amazing. So thank you to Sean and Cassandra for making our new beginning full of promises and a chance to make our dreams come true. Brian, and Heidi Yohe – Pennsylvania
I don’t even know where to begin or find the words to even describe how unbelievably AMAZING and BEAUTIFUL they made our wedding day! Sean and Cassandra were great working with before our wedding they answered all our questions and made everything easy and smooth for us! Sean did a great job being our officiant the vows were just beautiful! Their photographer Lisa was ABSOLUTELY amazing! Our photos from our wedding were absolutely stunning and breathtaking! We would HIGHLY recommend Rox to anyone planning an Ocean City beach wedding!
When my fiancé and I got engaged we decided that we wanted to have a wedding that was different , beautiful, and stress free! We thought that a beach wedding would be perfect, however we didn’t live near the ocean. I was looking online for information to the closest beach to us, which was Ocean City. I came across two different people that did beach weddings in Ocean City, Rox weddings was one of them. I called the first vendor and she was not very helpful. But when I called Rox, I was surprised that Sean answered the phone and was so willing to answer all of my questions. I was of course nervous because I was not from Ocean City, but Sean was always available through email or phone calls to assist in any way. I loved that he sent us a ceremony book so we could plan it ourselves. It made it very special! I even went down the summer before our wedding and he invited us to watch a wedding and then to his house to plan ours. We decided to do a sunrise wedding. Our wedding was at 5:30 am and I would definitely recommend a sunrise wedding to everyone. We had perfect weather and the pictures came out gorgeous! Sean and his crew had the beach set up beautifully and everything went smoothly. Our wedding was our dream wedding and it was all thanks to the special services we received from Rox Weddings. Fantastic to work with!
Sean is amazing to work with he makes everything so simple and he is very accommodating.
Lisa the photographer is also GREAT, she made sure we got all of the photos we were looking for.
Rox Beach Weddings is fantastic, you wont be disappointed!
Thank you for everything.
Sean and Cassandra (and all of their helpers) made our special day exactly what we wanted. They are so easy to work with and helped us with everything step by step. They are very professional and their responsiveness is very quick. We loved everything…the ceremony was perfect and pictures turned out awesome! We have no complaints and definitely recommend them to anyone looking for a beautiful Ocean City beach wedding!!
Everything about Rox Beach Weddings was wonderful. We did everything by phone and e-mail and I have absolutely nothing bad to say. Our day was everything I/we were expecting and more! We appreciate everything and would highly recommend Sean and Cassandra
Sean Rox and his wife where such a great help with our special day! They couldn’t have made us feel any more comfortable, and really went out of there way to make sure our day was perfect! They were very reassuring about the weather, and kept very positive! They set us up with an amazing photographer! Pictures turned out beautiful! Would definitely recommend using Rox beach weddings to give you the perfect day you could only dream of for your Ocean City wedding! Thanks again!
I highly recommend this company for any Ocean City wedding. The planning was super easy and no stress at all!! Sean did an excellent ceremony and the photographer, Simona, was so professional. We had a lot of fun taking the photos with her after the beautiful ceremony. If you are looking for a professional to perform your ceremony look no farther. You will not be disappointed with your decision!! Thank you all again so much!!
When Matt and I first started talking about getting married, there was no question that we would want to be married in our “Oasis”…Ocean City. He and I were high school sweethearts, reunited 16 years later…..A second marriage for me, a first for him…It had to be beautiful, unique, special for our kids, and a day we would always treasure. We had so many memories as teenagers, and now adults in Ocean City…we knew that a wedding there would be magnificent. But where to begin?? I reached out to Sean early on and it was like talking to someone I’d always known. He had great suggestions, was very relaxed and genuinely excited about our upcoming day. When the day finally arrived, and I was able to embrace the guy that pulled it all together, it was like seeing a long lost relative….Sean, Cassandra, and Lisa, our photographer, were amazing cheerleaders for us and brought their own brand of sunshine on our rainy day nuptials. Though the day brought us unexpected hiccups….it was seamless, and we couldn’t have been happier. I would recommend Rox to ANYONE considering a beach wedding….it was so easy….so fun….so incredibly romantic and tender. We will always be grateful to Rox. They helped make our dreams come true!
We are very low key people and just wanted a fun, party like wedding. I did not want to have to call a ton of different vendors and Rox made that happen. I got a package…ceremony officiant, DJ and photographer all from Rox. They had great communication with me the entire time (from booking them to the day of) and you could not beat the price for the service we received! I would truly recommend them to anyone looking to get married in Ocean City, MD!
Trying to plan a ceremony from a few states away, can be difficult, Sean and Cassandra made the ceremony part the easiest. We were searching for a beach wedding, in a state where same sex marriages were legal. That’s when we came across the 2013 Bridal show in Ocean City, we bought our tickets, booked a hotel room and traveled from Ohio, to see what it was about. We booked our ceremony for June 2014, on the spot. We wanted simple and beautiful and what we received was more than I could have imagined…Sean was patient and attentive. We were able to pick our music, rearrange the wording in our vows and the photographer was amazing, I love watching the DVD they put together for us. I would recommend ROX to anyone and everyone, whether you live in Maryland or across the nation. Our wedding day is truly the best day of my life and Sean and Cassandra helped make that possible. Thank You, ever so much, Sean & Cassandra!!!
Rox Beach Weddings is who you want to call for a most wonderful wedding experience anywhere in the Ocean City, MD area. My new Husband and I live in New York and we planned everything via telephone and online….talk about being nervous making sure everything would fall into place! Sean and Cassandra Rox and their crew were so great and friendly it felt like family we hadn’t seen in a long time. They were so warm and welcoming and made our Wedding Day absolutely Perfect!!! They qued everything perfectly down to me walking to the music we chose to my beloved fathers tribute by the sea! We cannot thank Rox Beach Wedding enough for a most wonderful and flawless and beautiful ceremony!! We would def use them again if we were to do it all over!!!
When my fiance and I became engaged in 2012, we knew we wanted something different. We LOVE the beach, but the closest beach to us is Ocean City. I did a search for beach wedding, Ocean City and came across Rox. I didn’t even look anywhere else because I found exactly what I was looking for. I requested information and the planning guide came in the mail a few days later. Each and every time I contacted Sean or Cassandra, my e-mail was promptly responded to. Unfortunately, my father passed away mid planning and my wedding was the last thing I was thinking about. I let Cassandra know and she was very understanding and told me that whenever I was ready, she would be too. A few months later, I contacted Cassandra and Sean again and we got the ball rolling. Everything was so smooth and easy. All I had to do was fill out the ceremony worksheet and email it right to Sean and I literally did nothing else. Sean and Cassandra took care of EVERYTHING!! The only thing I did was get my marriage license and speak on the phone with the photographer, Leesa, who is AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!! It was raining the day before my wedding and I contacted Sean with my concerns, after speaking with him, I was 1000x more relieved. It rained all night before my wedding, and the morning of, then at 8:30, the rain stopped and the sun poked out!!!!!! I cannot thank Sean and Cassandra enough for everything. They gave us the PERFECT wedding we wanted!!!
It’s been almost a year (already!) since my husband and I were married at Ocean City, Md. I wanted a relaxed wedding where my friends and family could have FUN — and Rox Beach Weddings delivered! Sean and Cassandra were helpful and easy to work with, making my job ultimately stress-free. Our photographer was excellent, too. I would recommend their services to any bride & groom looking to have a non-traditional wedding. Thank you for making our day special! I’m looking forward to many years of celebrating anniversaries at our place on the beach.
In January of 13 I contacted Sean Rox of Rox Beach Wedding! Right away they were very nice and helped me set a date of only 2.5 months away! Everytime I emailed them whether it was wedding related or not they always got right back to me and even referred places! They sent the ceremony planning guide right away and I was able to with ther help plan my beach wedding through email! They even went to the Ocean City Hall for me to fill out the permission form to get married on the beach! They were always extremely nice and helpful! We even had problems last minute and was able to change readings in our ceremony for us! The morning of the wedding they were already there and set up before we got there! The ceremony went great and it was a beautiful sunny day! It was not expensive at all (with 4 kids thats what we were looking for) but you get so much more for the price that you pay with Rox! We even had a first dance on the beach! Sean officiated the wedding and he was awesome! Cassandra was our photographer and the pictures are amazing!! I love love them! I loved the day so much I didnt want it to end!! It was so beautiful and we are very happy we went through Rox and our kids were able to be apart of our day! We then went on a 8 day cruise to the Bahamas for our honeymoon and that was awesome too:) I highly recommend Sean and Cassandra to anyone and everyone! I have thanked them so many times since our wedding day for making it perfect! We are going to renew our vows and even want to go through ROX again because of how amazing and excellent they were!! Really!! I cant say it enough!! HAVE YOUR WEDDING DOWN OCEAN CITY AND GO THROUGH ROX!!! SEAN AND CASSANDRA ARE VERY PROFESSIONAL, GREAT, TALENTED, AND VERY DOWN TO EARTH!! Your wedding day will be awesome and you will not regret it! Thank Sean and Cassandra for making my wedding day amazing!!!
My husband and I just got married May 12, 2012 on the beach in Ocean City, Maryland. We chose the Clarion as our ceremony and reception location because they allowed us to have our dogs in the wedding, and not only was Sean completely supportive of this nontraditional aspect, he had worked with the Clarion before and that made coordination for the wedding day all the more smooth. I had several changes and questions throughout the planning process and Sean and Cassandra were always very prompt with email or phone call replies, super professional but laid back and comfortable, and worked with us to get us EXACTLY the beach ceremony we wanted. The set-up was gorgeous – we had the arch and palm tree line, chairs, and runner, with a photographer (who was also FABULOUS, we loved Leesa) and a picture package. He made everyone feel comfortable, and put me completely at ease right before the ceremony. Sean, as a minister, was perfect – he tailored his attire to our style, had a very clear and enthusiastic voice during the readings, and took care of everything. Our ceremony was worth every single penny. It was gorgeous and even better than we expected, and it’s evident in our amazing pictures. I have never interacted with a business owner that was so easy to get along with, prompt, enthusiastic about their services, very well priced, and dedicated to the customer. We cannot recommend Sean and Cassandra Rox and their photographers enough – if you are even slightly considering a beach wedding in the Ocean City region, you HAVE to use them!
When they say things like “fun, easy, and stress free” they certainly mean it. My fiance and I were sort of overwhelmed at the idea of planning a big wedding and underwhelmed by starting the whole process. I’d been taking summer trips to Ocean City with my family since I was a child and it’s always been one of my favorite places, full of ALOT of great memories with family and friends. I quickly suggested “what about a beach wedding”? Well, my fiance wasn’t too keen on the idea until I managed to find Sean & Cassandra online and requested some information. When we received the catalog, he was on board, it was just TOO easy. I called a while later and spoke to Cassandra who kindly suggested some dates they had available, talked me into a sunrise ceremony, and even recommended a great place for after-wedding breakfast for all of our guests. They were so easy to work with and I was so relieved that outside of planning the weekend for our guests and making sure he & I were ready, we didn’t have to do a thing but make a few decisions! We showed up to a beautiful sunrise, got married in an amazing place, got some great photos with our family and friends, and most of all – we made some amazing memories. I’m so thankful that the Rox crew made our wedding easy and special at the same time. I highly recommend giving them a call if you’re considering an Ocean City wedding, they’ll make it so easy all you have to do is make a trip to the beach in a gown!
My husband and I were married on September 16, 2011 on the beach in Ocean City during our favorite time of the year, Bike Week. We were engaged on July 9th and wanted a beach wedding, so we did not have much time to plan! I found Rox Weddings and Events online and it seemed to be just what me and my husband were looking for. I contacted Sean and Cassandra because I had some questions about how the wedding would be run and what to expect. They both were very patient and helpful with all of my questions that I had! My husband and I are not from the Ocean City area, so I had asked Sean and Cassandra if we could meet with them and discuss the wedding while we were on our family vacation in the beginning of August. They were more than willing to sit down with us and discuss how the day would go and if we had anything special we wanted in the ceremony. Since were are not from the area, I had asked for recommendations on where to go to get my nails done for the wedding. Cassandra was there to point me in the right direction and recommended a fabulous spa me and my best friend enjoyed on my wedding day. Also, we found the packet that was sent in the mail very helpful! It guided us in planning the ceremony and allowed us to customize it and make it very personal by including our friends and family into the ceremony. As for the wedding day…it couldn’t have gone better! We had actually forgot to pick up 2 roses for our rose ceremony we had planned and Sean was great at being flexible and taking that part out for us. The beautiful set up with the archway and tiki torches was fabulous and it was ready on time. Also, the wedding photographer that we were provided was GREAT! He allowed us to get certain shots that we wanted and then we let him do his own thing and he did a wonderful job. He got great shots of the ceremony and our gathering that we had afterwards. Sean and Cassandra were both very laid back and personable people!! I would not have changed a thing about our wedding day experience!
We had a beautiful ceremony on September 20th at sunrise on the Ocean City beach. I found Rox Weddings on the internet and the whole experience was easy and hassle free. They sent me packet in the mail with the different wedding options they offer. Once I picked out the package, they sent me a ceremony guide to help with planning and a guideline for the vows. We were able to customize the ceremony just how we wanted. They answered all emails and questions very quickly. We picked the ‘elopers special’ and even though it was just the two of us at the wedding, they never made it feel like it was less important than a traditional ceremony. Of course the OC beach at sunrise was beautiful and all the pictures looked great! Their photographer did a great job, was friendly and made sure we were happy with everything. Overall great experience.
