About

Up to 230 guests

Rebuilt in 1998, the Avalon Yacht Club has been one of the Jersey Shore’s most breathtaking private club venues. With every view overlooking the water, our exquisite location along the bay makes the Avalon Yacht Club an ideal location to host your wedding. Philadelphia Magazine rated the Avalon Yacht Club best of the shore for wedding sunsets.
Weddings are hosted during the spring and fall seasons, but unfortunately not during the summer months of July and August, when the club is in season. At the Avalon Yacht Club a well seasoned staff caters to your every need, whether you have a large, extravagant wedding or a small, intimate reception. When you have your wedding at the Avalon Yacht Club a year membership is included in the wedding package so you will be able to enjoy the atmosphere for more than just your special day. Wedding ceremonies can take place in front of a magnificent view on the north deck, weather permitting. Otherwise, the ceremony can be held on an indoor balcony.

Jarrod Sykes, the onsite event manager, will gladly coordinate all planning and details for your wedding. Jarrod has been a part of the Avalon Yacht Club team for the past 19 years. He will assist you in getting the perfect floral arrangements, entertainment, wedding cake and every intricate detail to make your wedding day everything you ever dreamed. Jarrod will also help plan your reception around the exact time of sunset, to ensure beautiful wedding pictures with the best background nature can provide.
Peter Mark, the executive chef of the Avalon Yacht Club for over 25 years, will provide the cuisine for your special day. From a one entrée dinner, to a choice of three, Chef Peter will work with you one on one to figure out which foods will best cater to you and your guests.
The Avalon Yacht Club is located at 704 7th Street in Avalon. For further information please email Jarrod Sykes at jarrodsykes@avalonyachtclub.com. The Avalon Yacht Club can be reached at (609) 967-4444.

    Incredible experience

    We couldn’t have dreamed of a better experience while working with AYC for our reception. From the responsiveness, the food, the ease of putting everything together, it was truly a dream. We've received endless compliments of the food, style of the space, and of course the view! Jarrod and the entire AYC team were incredible to work with. There is truly not a single negative thing I can say about the entire experience. If you are looking to host your wedding here, I couldn’t recommend it more (and I am VERY particular). AYC was AMAZING!

    The Perfect Wedding Venue

    The Avalon Yacht Club was the absolute perfect wedding venue. From the ceremony and reception, to the views, to the incredible food and staff this place is incredible. If you are looking to have the best wedding ever, this is the place. We really can't thank you all enough for the best day of our lives, especially the AYC coordinators Jarrod and Brian. Our wedding day was seamless and perfect we had nothing to worry about. Also compliments to Chef Peter our guests have been giving us so many compliments on how the food at our wedding was the best they ever had. If you are looking for a venue that has it all, this is the place for you.

    Smooth sailing from Yes to I Do

    The Avalon Yacht Club was the perfect venue for our wedding!! Everything from the day we signed a contract to the end of our wedding went so smoothly! Jarrod, the assistant manager, answered all of our questions and was immensely helpful leading up to the big day. Brian, the manager, was our point person on the weekend. He made everything run so smoothly that we could just sit back and enjoy the day! Chef Peter and his staff made excellent and delicious food, even for our guests with dietary restrictions. The entire wait staff was very attentive. The ambiance of the club was so relaxing and and simplistic, we hardly had to do much with the florist except for just enhance its natural beauty! The club's preferred vendor list was also very thorough and, as we were planning the wedding from 6 hours away, we used many of the vendors on their list. Boy are we happy we did!
    From my Husband: Jarrod, Brian, and Chef Pete were amazing guys that were really in control of the situation and they made me feel at ease and relaxed and able to enjoy my time at my wedding! Move over bridezillas - Brian and Jarrod know more than you do!
