COVID wedding success!!
There really aren't enough words to describe how amazing our experience was at The Berkeley for our COVID minimony and dinner reception on July 24, 2020. We were with another venue but then COVID19 happened. 22 days before our wedding date we had to start our wedding planning over and I called The Berkeley on a whim. Albie answered the phone and within minutes gave me multiple options to have our ceremony and mini reception. My (now) husband and I had been through it with our previous venue and other vendors and were quite honestly just used to feeling like a dollar sign but Albie, Cory and Chef Frank actually genuinely seemed to want to make our day special for us. They met with us multiple times in those 3 short weeks and were available for phone calls and emails whenever we needed. We were able to have the ceremony on the roof but it rained that day so we had it in one of their gorgeous rooms overlooking the beach, we had a dinner reception on their 2nd floor terrace and local friends were able to meet up for the after party at their outside garden bar. They really went above and beyond for us and we really are overcome with gratitude that these guys have a passion for their work. Everyone at the Berkeley was so accommodating, our friends and family can't stop raving about how great everything was(Chef Frank's short rib was the biggest hit!) and how amazing the service was across the board. The facility is gorgeous and having our dinner reception on the terrace was awesome overlooking the Asbury boardwalk but what made our wedding so special was the care these guys put into it. They literally saved our wedding day and we are forever grateful. If this is what the guys are capable of with all the COVID restrictions and 3 weeks notice AND a tight budget, I can only imagine the type of events they'll put together in the future.

The Perfect Location for you and your guests!
We chose The Berkeley for many reasons but here's the top; 1 because of the history that it has in the beach town that we love, and 2 because of the beautiful atmosphere it provides in every space we used (from rooftop wedding to reception, to guest rooms) and 3 because it is a great location to accommodate to out of town guests! We did a wedding weekend, and The Berekely was the perfect location. To have all the people we love in one spot all weekend, and then to be able to see and do all Asbury has to offer was perfect. Working with The Berekely was absolutely wonderful and stress-free! The helped us host, and throw a beautiful wedding.Sent on 10/25/2019
