Ocean City Beach Weddings
Ocean City Maryland Weddings
Rox Beach Weddings debuted as Ocean City’s original beach wedding service in 2006. Officiant Sean Rox & Photographer Cassandra Rox helped over 2,000 couples plan affordable beach weddings and vow renewals.
Location can be the beach in front of your room or Assateague Island for the best pics. Weekdays at sunset offer the most privacy. Ceremonies are about 10 minutes.
We offer VIP seating (up to 12 chairs), a table & music for 1st Dance on the Beach. The Ocean is your centerpiece. Not using an arch lets us set up close to the sea for cleaner photos (plus they look tacky wobbling in the wind).
Ocean City Vow Renewals
Want an amazing anniversary gift the entire family will love? Renewing your wedding vows on the ultimate romantic gesture! Get the family beach portraits you always wanted and create a unique memory that will last a lifetime.
Want to make it a surprise?
We can help spring it on the day or in advance as a well timed gift.
Our stylish gift certificates are perfect for Birthdays, Anniversaries, Mother’s Day or Christmas stocking stuffers! We offer a $50 midweek discount on Ocean City and Assateague Island vow renewals.

Large weddings and ceremonies with extensive decorations are required to contact City Hall for possible conflicts. If permission is required we will contact the Mayor’s Office on your behalf. Summer Ceremonies can’t take place during lifeguard hours.
