The best night of my life

My wedding at the GYC was everything I could’ve dreamt of and more! From the attention to detail, to the incredible staff you couldn’t choose a better venue.

The perfect venue and caterer!

We loved everything about our wedding at the Guilford Yacht Club and working with Gourmet Galley. Marissa McCue was our wedding coordinator and day-of-event planner. She was responsive, did not hesitate to accommodate our special requests and all of the questions back and forth. Her staff on the day of the event were also amazing- Kyle was able to take over once Marissa left for the night and continued to make sure all of our needs were met and that the night continued smoothly. We ended up with 145 guests, which was the perfect fit for the room and our guests continue to say how amazing our wedding was- from the setting, to the food to our speciality cocktails- I wouldn't have changed a thing!
