Best of the Best (even through COVID)

Where to begin? BYC has been nothing short of amazing throughout this entire process. They are a beautiful venue for a reception (we are getting married in a church) and checked all our boxes. With over 300 people invited, we were worried about finding a venue with the capacity and quality we needed while still being in a reasonable budget. BYC was the answer to our prayers! They let us hold our date for a week while deciding which helped take some of the stress off searching. Their contract is clear, has lots of flexibility for different packages, and they are structured to take payments in increments to spread out the burden. Our contact Sam has been professional, responsive, and very helpful since day 1.
Our original date was in October of 2020, but we just decided to push it out another year due to COVID-19. Bridgeview was calm and supportive through the whole thing (and was even helped make accommodations to help us get one of our payments in). Once we voiced we wanted to move the date, the process was hassle-free in a time where we needed it most! Thank you, thank you to everyone at BYC. We cannot wait to share our special day with you next year and look forward to leaving another guaranteed positive review next year!

I got married at Bridgeview Yacht Club in January 2020. The venue is gorgeous and the staff is simply AMAZING! They made the day flow with such ease, were so incredibly attentive and I could not recommend this place more! Eric was fantastic and Samantha was wonderful during the entire planning process. The entire staff was top notch!!Sent on 10/07/2020

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.
