    Perfect venue for a unique and intimate wedding

    We chose Porta as our venue because of its unique style, fun atmosphere, and delicious food. Chandler, the event planner, guided us through the entire process and answered all of our questions. Heather and the rest of the staff on the day of were amazing. The day ran so smoothly. Everything was decorated beautifully and any thing we needed or wanted was given to us! Our guests loved the food and the vibe at Porta and we got so many compliments. Thank you so much for giving us the wedding of our dreams.

    Porta is perfect!

    We LOVED Porta as our wedding venue! Food, dancing, celebrating our love with loved ones and capturing it all was what was most important to us (and doing it without putting us in serious debt). We had our photographer, videographer, our friend officiated, we brought in local donuts from Purple Glaze to add to our dessert options, we used their house DJ, DJ Za who was amazing. We had a sweetheart cake for ourselves, and did a lot of DIY.

    Not only were we left happy with our experience but guests (friends and close family... no obligatory invites), continue to tell us it's the best wedding they've ever been a guest at. Which is something people don't typically say if they don't mean it. I truly feel this is mostly attributed to the venue. We still get texts from friends/family who were guests who had never been to Porta saying, "We're back at Porta to eat!" That's how delicious the food is.

    Porta will assist with planning, we already had a vision so for us it was getting approval. Chandler was our coordinator and she rocked. She answered our questions and we never had to hunt her down. Cocktail hour first was amazing (Friday at the shore, before the ceremony... I highly recommend this - and for every wedding), were are so happy we were able to do that. The wedding had to end a bit earlier than most since the room is turned into a club after but we had a rooftop afterparty at The Asbury Hotel and ended up at the diner after. All walking distance.

    We had SO MUCH fun! And we found that what we were left with were the memories of how much fun we had which just really put the stamp of approval on our decisions. The space, the food, the staff... all amazing. I highly recommend!
