We tied the knot in May of 2019, we both live in London, England but as my wife is American with ties to the Jersey Shore, we chose the Marketplace in Long Branch NJ for our wedding. Despite organising 95% of it from England over the phone and email, Jon and Sandra were very accommodating and flexible with our requests and went out of their way to ensure the 5 hour time difference between US and UK was not an issue. We honestly could not recommend them enough, they were always supportive of our ideas and always offered suggestions and examples without being too overbearing, or pushing a particular package or agenda on us, which is something we became tired of when contacting other wedding hosts. The venue itself was perfect for our ceremony and reception, it has two fantastic rooms and a great outdoor space. Finally, the catering provided by the venue was amazing! Jon and Sandra arranged a tasting menu for us so we could pick and choose our favourite dishes and also made some great... Read more suggestions. Our guests still talk about going back to NJ to get some more of the food! The in-house staff were also amazing!
Jon and Sandra are the nicest people to deal with and made our special day amazing! As mentioned they are so accommodating and welcoming, always have time to talk to you and listen to your ideas, always respond to emails, do not push things on you and ultimately want to create a pleasant collaborative environment. Its easy to tell that they have a real passion for it and truly care about putting together the best day for you, rather than getting paid and moving on to the next wedding. If you're planning a Jersey Shore Wedding, then this is the first place to call!
