    The wedding of our dreams

    Our wedding day at the Claridge exceeded all of our expectations. From the day we first looked at the venue, through the days leading up to the wedding, and especially on the day of the event itself, Jeff and Curtis went above and beyond. My fiancee and I were unable to look at the venue together, so Jeff gave me an extra tour on a separate day. He accommodated our very specific dietary requests for the tasting (which was honestly some of the best food I have had), and the meals on the day itself were just as delicious as the tasting. Both Jeff and Curtis responded immediately to emails or calls and excelled with communication. They were flexible with the extra details and truly tailored the day to us. On the day of the wedding, they made everything run seamlessly and on time. We had various components of the ceremony and reception in different rooms- Jeff reserved elevators for this and ushered everyone to where they needed to go. Jeff even helped line up the wedding party for the processions into the ceremony and the reception. The Claridge staff saved appetizers from the cocktail hour for my now-husband and I, and they saved the top of the wedding cake for us to take home- something I never would have thought of! The venue itself is so beautiful that we didn’t need extra flowers or decorations. The bridal suite is huge with ample mirrors, and Jeff and Curtis even provided champagne and fruit for getting ready the day-of. Our guests enjoyed comfortable rooms with gorgeous ocean views, and we received so many compliments about our choice of venue. We cannot thank Jeff, Curtis, and the Claridge staff enough for hosting the wedding of our dreams and making the day one of the happiest (and least stressful!) of our lives.

    The Claridge Team is excellent!

    Our wedding at the Claridge was stunning and our venue coordinator, Jeff, should win an award for his patience and professionalism. We actually were between two venues and we chose the Claridge because we wanted to work with Jeff. My advice to brides is to always choose vendors who match your working preferences because at the end of the day, you want that experience to be smooth.

    We had our ceremony in the Oceanview Room, our cocktail hour in the Art Gallery, and our reception in the Grand Ballroom. Transitioning spaces made each part of the wedding feel special. We had a multicultural wedding (Pakistani/American) and we were able to customize the space to our needs. The only problem at times was the slow elevators, but Jeff went out of his way to make sure our guests weren't kept waiting, and our wedding did take place during a busy holiday weekend.

    I also loved the bridal getting ready room - it fit all my friends and family and had the perfect space for hair, makeup, and getting dressed. We had access to it all day and the following day, so we were safely able to store belongings in there during the wedding. The food and cake was great according to our guests (it was a blur for us!) and we had no complaints. I would highly recommend the Claridge for your wedding!
