    Great Wedding Venue!

    We had a great experience with Longbranch for our wedding last year. Tami and Dan did such a great job helping with all the planning and setup, making the day run so smoothly. The food was amazing, for both our rehearsal dinner and for our wedding day. We also love the convenience of the hotel rooms for family and friends to stay all in one place! Everyone had a great time- we would definitely recommend to all!

    We had our reception here and I am so happy we did! Tami was awesome to work with and gave us great ideas. She checked in frequently to make sure everything would be ready to go on the big day and wasn't hard to get ahold of if we needed her. Food and service were great and the set up was beautiful. They worked with us and let us get in early to decorate (as there were no other events that hindered that). Overall a great experience, my husband and I had a great time and so did all of our guests. Thanks Tami and all of the Long Branch Staff!
