It was the perfect day, all thanks to Bridgeview Yacht Club
After getting engaged back in July, we decided that we wanted to get married within a few months and decided on October 13th.
After searching around venues, we quickly learned that if you want to have a party at a catering hall, its quite affordable, but a wedding, make sure you're sitting when they tell you there is a $10,000 surcharge.
Bridgeview was different, there was a set price for a sit down or a buffet and from everyone we spoke too, people raved about the food. There was an additional ceremony price but it was very reasonable and included hospitality. And with our date open, we booked them for our day.
To keep the costs down, we did a lot of the planning ourselves and included friends we trusted to provide the key elements. As the day got closer, we met with Jenn from Bridgeview a few times, to discuss and choose the menu. They have a lot of Gluten-Free options and that was important to us. We were also able to choose table cloths and napkins to fit our color scheme. Bridgeview had every imaginable color with was a nice touch.
Fast forward to the day. They let us get there early to start setting up and getting ready. My bride had her hair dresser meet her so they could start preparing for the ceremony. I and my grooms people unloaded the car and started to plan out the setup. We had a chuppa to build and also setup the party room and the ceremony space. What I hadn't expected was help from Bridgeview.
It was apparent that from the second I got there to setup, there was help and direction all around me. The staff led by Eric and Claudia at Bridgeview took our engraved vases and centerpieces, the other design chotskies and completely set everything up in the party room while I setup the Chuppa in their courtyard.
As the ceremony time approached Eric directed me to get ready and then we went over a few things before things got underway. Everything went so smoothly. And the ceremony came and went and it was beautiful.
During the party itself, Eric and Claudia were there 110% of the time. They were overly attendant which was great, and never not helpful. Between taking pictures, seeing family and friends, eating, dancing, it was the direction of Bridgeview that made things go so smoothly. The rest of the staff was extremely professional as well and it seemed like everyone was having a good time. The party ended on time, to the dismay of everyone.
Cleanup was also a breeze, Eric and Claudia helped get extra things packed up, and before we knew it, the day was over. Bridgeview and their amazing staff and facilities made our day everything it could have been and more. Their attention to detail and experience made our day seem effortless and we have nothing but happy, fun memories. All of our guests continue to tell us that our wedding was the most enjoyable wedding they have been which speaks more than our praises. Bridgeview Yacht Club, thank you again.

Hands down, the absolute best!
I cannot say enough good things about the staff and venue of Bridgeview Yacht Club! We got married 7-13-19. From the moment we met Sam and Eric we were blown away! They took us in after Woodbury CC closed and we had no venue for our wedding, worked with us to accomodate everything we expected to get, etc. The day of, Eric and Kristin were beyond amazing - catered to our every need, kept us organized and on time, and made us feel so relaxed and at ease that everything was taken care of. They worked seamlessly with our vendors and ensured we had the best day ever!Sent on 10/03/2019

Our favorite Venue
Wow, where do I begin. Bridgeview Yacht Club was the first venue we looked at and ultimately booked because no other venue compares. We’re here to tell anyone planning a wedding, don’t waste your time looking! Our extremely high expectations were not only met, but were far surpassed. In the end they did not disappoint. BYC and their associates turn a dream wedding into reality. I wish we could go back to that day and do it again. From start to finish, Jenn guided us in the right direction to make the process seamless. She was patient, accessible, and responsive. She answered many questions, made suggestions, and did everything she could leading up to our event to ensure our day would be as perfect as could be. Even our belongings were presented back to us boxed up perfectly, and in pristine condition as the day we dropped them off. Nothing was missing.
One of the first things I remember about the day is pulling up to the venue and Eric the Maitre D, and Tanya the Bridal Attendant greeting us outside with big smiles on their faces, and warm, friendly, welcoming dispositions. They instantly made us feel like A-listers from that moment on. They were fun while they exuded class and remained professional throughout our entire reception. Early on they briefly pulled us aside to ask us our must have moments for the evening and took every step to deliver. Eric simply, smoothly, calmly and discreetly did his best to handle, and did handle any situation (through no fault of the venue) that could have made the day go a little awry like it was no issue at all, and he didn’t allow it to become a problem that we needed to handle. Tanya was sweet, efficient, and attentive. I have no doubt I was a little fussy due to being a ball of nerves. She helped me with my train and then my bustle, and my bustle again when it malfunctioned. She never displayed anything but grace and never once made me feel like I was asking for too much. She had ready samplings of everything from our cocktail hour, dinner, and our drinks were never not full. My Husband and I would blink and we’d have fresh drinks without having seen her. Having both been in the hospitality industry, my Husband and I were certainly impressed, as were our guests. Several guests made comments of their observation of Tanya, and how Eric paid special attention to family and friends. All of the extended staff at BYC were professional and accommodating. Their level of service is unparalleled. Parents on both sides received several calls about how delicious and abundant the cocktail hour, and dinner was, and how it was the most beautiful, elegant wedding they’ve ever been to.
And if the venue wasn’t already beautiful enough before, and when we booked; the renovations that took place during our time planning, both inside and out, are breathtaking. The updates are absolutely gorgeous, and almost felt like they were done just for us! There’s no other venue like it. Attention to detail is paid to every surface from top to bottom. As for someone with an eye (and prior training) for design, it leaves much to be desired when venues don’t pay attention to their ceiling and lighting, and BYC covers it all, literally and beautifully. BYC is a dream venue. I’m already dreaming of how we can plan a future celebration there to recreate the most beautiful day of our life together thus far! My Husband and I have attended over 20 weddings together. BYC is by far our favorite!Sent on 10/30/2019
One of the best venues around. Also our favorite!
