    Exceptional Team at the Shore Club

    My now husband, then fiance and I originally planned to have our wedding at The Shore Club (then Doolan’s Shore Club) in September of 2020 before the eventual collapse of the world. My grandfather used to take my sisters and I there when we were girls so there was obviously some measure of nostalgia for me. The former owner’s remembered my grandfather and even offered us a special rate in his memory. When Doolan’s eventually changed ownership, we were somewhat worried that we would lose the cozy, friendly relationship we had with our wedding venue.

    We were so pleased when the new ownership did everything they could to honor our former contracts and offer the same friendly service, as if we had known them for years as well!

    Additionally, many renovations have been made to update the venue. Rooms are now modernized, the lobby/bars are warm and inviting, and the atrium is a stunning locale for a ceremony. Their new menu packages are also mind boggling; to this day our guests like to tell us that they had never seen such an extensive spread at a wedding (which was also delicious)!

    The Shore Club made sure that we had everything we needed and then some. The staff went above and beyond securing us rooms to get ready in for our henna artist, opening the bar early for my husband (who is a huge soccer fan) and his groomsmen so that they could watch an important soccer match, and providing transport to the lake for photos.

    With all that being said, the pièce de résistance: the night before our 6 a.m. flight to Aruba, we call the limo company to confirm our trip to the airport. They have no record of our reservation. Who comes to the rescue? The Shore Club yet again; Billy offers to come pick us up at 4 a.m.

    We can’t say enough wonderful things about the exceptional team and we are so happy to have celebrated such a milestone at The Shore Club.

    Spring Lake’s “The Shore Club” knocked it out of the park for our daughter’s wedding a few weeks ago!

    Our daughter was one of those brides who had to send out 3 save the date cards due to Covid. When we found out that the Doolans had sold to new owners and we had already rescheduled 2x due to Covid, we were on alert. The new owners immediately put our minds at ease and honored the preexisting agreement.

    Fast forward to September 2021…after filling every room at the hotel with our guests, we saw the rooms were beautiful and the linens top notch and the employees who went out of their way to make it a special weekend. There is still some work to be done in the rooms, but we were very pleased at how much was accomplished in such a short time given all the material and resource shortages driven by Covid.

    The wedding day was perfect. The Atrium was bright and comfortable for the ceremony and party rooms clean and elegant. Our guests were very happy with the quality and quantity of the cocktail hour and reception food, drink and service. The surf and turf was a nice touch for our Beach wedding.

    Shout out to Chelsea, Brian, Pam, Terry, Nicole, Penny and Billy. They helped us navigate the expected and the unexpected. In fact, when a local car service bailed on the wedding couple the night before they were to travel to Newark Airport for their honeymoon, Billy called all his contacts and given the late notice from the original car service, Billy said “don’t worry, I’ll take you myself” on his day off!

    We are excited to return when The Shore Club opens up their Steak House, Roof Top Bar and other upgrades.

    Doolan’s Shore Club

    We had our wedding here this past June! We were such last minute planners, but Susan made sure everything was absolutely perfect on our big day. We had a brunch wedding and the food was amazing! We had several meetings and often changed some things around, but Susan was so patient and worked with us to ensure everything was how we imagined it.
