  • During this crazy and very difficult time, Whitby Castle has been nothing but the best. We spoke to them many times, sometimes daily, while trying to figure out if we should postpone our wedding due to COVID-19 pandemic and they were nothing but supportive. Any time we spoke to a Whitby Castle representative, they were consistently upbeat, responsive, engaged and joyful. Throughout this process, they gave us many options to help us make a final decision. In addition, they openly shared their current plan for hosting events when allowed by state guidelines. Once we made our decision, Whitby made us feel safe with their future plans as well. Whitby was extremely reassuring and patient with us during this difficult time. We couldn’t imagine anywhere else that we would want to spend our special day!
