The Reeds at Shelter Haven

The entire weekend was at The Reeds and we couldn't have been happier. Katie, our event organizer was outstanding. The servers were very cordial and helpful for the before dinner, wedding, after party and breakfast. We were thrilled and grateful for George, the valet; Matt, the banquet captain; and the main server, Lilly. The wedding was absolutely magical and the suites were lovely.

Beautiful Spring Wedding

We fell in love with The Reeds after one visit and knew that was where we wanted to get married. When COVID hit and we had to reschedule, Krista was more than helpful in the entire process. Once we got closer to our date we worked with Liz and she was beyond amazing. We had gorgeous weather on our wedding day and the ballroom was even more gorgeous once it was al set up and covered in our flowers. All of our guests were blown away by the water views and entire set up. Loved every minute of our day!

The best "backup" plan of all time

The Reeds was not our original venue, but we could not be happier that we were forced to change locations. We also got so lucky that it was available on our date. We were originally supposed to get married in Philadelphia and expected a guest list of around 200-220. When it didn't seem like our wedding would happen as is and like we'd have a smaller count, we started to look for other options. The Reeds was truly meant to be for us. Guests were raving about the location all night and after the event and we just can't believe how well it worked out. Our day was so beautiful. The Reeds also was very accommodating going into the event in terms of our guest list. We decided to just invite everyone and to see where we net out and they were willing to make it work. We ended up with 145 people and 150 were allowed inside in NJ at the time. I will say that that number felt perfect for the space and that I don't think our original number would have been good there. We even had 4 tables outside on the veranda (to make people feel comfortable with COVID) and this was helpful in terms of space for the dance floor. They also had special touches for the weekend like champagne brought to our room and a chocolate cake for my Dad in his room (he wanted chocolate cake at the tasting and we decided on something else). We stayed in the Sky Suite which was amazing to get ready in and ended up having people in our room after the wedding with bars and such having COVID limitations. It was the best day of our lives and we are so glad that we were able to have it at The Reeds.
