Oceanic Pompano Wedding Guide

Tips and Advice

Dreaming of a picturesque wedding by the Atlantic ocean, surrounded by breathtaking views? Look no further than Oceanic Pompano! I recently had the opportunity to be a part of a styled shoot at the Oceanic. We wanted to highlight not only local wedding vendors, but the amazing spaces in and around this Pompano Beach wedding venue. This wedding venue guide will reveal why Oceanic Pompano should be at the top of your wedding venue wishlist.

First, some quick details:

Address: 250 N Pompano Beach Blvd, Pompano Beach, FL 33062

Parking: There’s some street parking, and a large parking garage just one block away. Valet is also available, ensuring that your wedding day begins and ends with ease.

A Great Rehearsal Dinner Option in South Florida

Not only is the Oceanic a great wedding venue, but it’s also a hidden gem of a location for your rehearsal dinner!

Their talented culinary team will create a delectable menu tailored to your preferences, allowing you to savor every moment leading up to your big day. Whether you desire an intimate gathering or a grand feast, Oceanic Pompano will make your rehearsal dinner unforgettable.

The first time I walked into the Mangrove Room I literally gasped. This circular room comes with a few surprises. I love the turquoise wallpaper, insane aquatic ceiling installation, and windows for that good good natural light. The ambiance in this room is great for all wedding color pallets – neutral or bold!

The Mangrove Room is a lovely option for your rehearsal dinner, or any other wedding related event with up to 45 guests.

The Getting Ready Space

Before we jump into the star spaces of the venue, let’s talk getting ready! This cozy getting ready space is steps from the main ballroom upstairs. It can fit up to 4 people comfortably. If you’re the type of bride that wants to have hair and makeup done elsewhere and then get into your gown at the venue, this space is PERFECT. The room has two chairs, large mirrors, and plenty of space to change into that spicy reception dress halfway through the party!

The Indoor Spaces

One of the standout features of Oceanic Pompano is its enchanting upstairs room. This captivating space provides a picturesque setting that is sure to leave a lasting impression on both you and your guests. The existing neutral decor is spacious enough to accommodate a variety of wedding styles and guest counts. Its flexible layout can comfortably host up to 150 guests for a seated dinner reception or up to 200 guests for a cocktail-style gathering. Oh and the natural light?! A dream!

A brunch or daytime wedding would be absolute MAGIC at the Oceanic Pompano. Imagine a sunrise or morning ceremony on the sand, and walking up to your light-filled brunch and mimosas at the outdoor bar… sigh. (We’ll get to that outdoor bar in a second!)

Whether you envision an intimate affair or a grand celebration, this versatile space can be tailored to suit your needs.

The upstairs room provides an exclusive and private atmosphere for you and your loved ones. It is separate from the main dining area, ensuring that your celebration remains intimate and uninterrupted.

The Outdoor Spaces

One of the highlights of Oceanic Pompano is its stunning upstairs outdoor space. Just off the main room, the terrace offers a charming and intimate setting for ceremonies, cocktail hours, or even a cozy reception. Surrounded by lush greenery and adorned with elegant decor, this open-air sanctuary provides the perfect backdrop for your romantic affair. Set up some lounge spaces for your guests or keep the party going with an outdoor dance floor!

The patio space has motorized screens in case of rain or harsh sun, and enough covering for a rainy day “good-luck” sprinkle. Keep the screens up and the ocean views will leave you and your guests in awe. The romantic backdrop provided by the Atlantic Ocean sets the stage for a truly magical celebration.

The Outdoor Bar

Speaking of outdoor spaces, the outdoor bar and lounge is not only the obvious choice for cocktail hour, but can add some prime real estate to your reception as well. With space for 150 guests, including 30 seats at the bar, let the Oceanic’s talented bartenders whip up your custom cocktails to all your favorite people.

Other Amenities

Oceanic Pompano understands the importance of modern amenities to enhance your wedding experience. The upstairs room is equipped with advanced audiovisual capabilities. This allows you to create a captivating atmosphere with music, lighting, and audio effects. Want to show a cool video right before your epic wedding entrance? Or a sweet slideshow before your rehearsal dinner? I spotted two huge projection screens in the upstairs room! Whether you desire a live band, a DJ, or a custom playlist, the state-of-the-art amenities ensure that your celebration is accompanied by high-quality sound and visuals.
