    Absolutely amazing!

    Having our wedding at windows on the water was the best decision EVER! we toured a few other beach venues throughout NJ before touring windows on the water at surfrider and as soon as we got to the venue we knew it was totally perfect. The venue itself is absolutely stunning and was exactly what we had in mind for our wedding: a beautiful view of the ocean, a completely gorgeous and classy venue, but with a casual and fun vibe at the same time, and a beachfront ceremony space. The rooftop deck attached to the ballroom space on the second floor is also breathtaking and SO FUN!. We were lucky enough to have great weather for our wedding and we could not have asked for a more perfect night. Everyone was enjoying using the outdoor space, and had the best time ever. Our guests have such great things to say about how good the whole evening went! Tracy was extremely helpful and kind and made the wedding process so so easy from day 1. We never had any concerns that things would not be perfect! Cheryl is also truly amazing and the entire wedding day was completely seamless. And a special thanks to Ali for being a fabulous bridal attendant.
    Lastly, The food was INCREDIBLE from the cocktail hour to the dinner. Our guests have been talking about it non stop and there’s no way anyone left hungry lol. We cannot recommend this venue enough. THANK YOU CHERYL, TRACY, and the rest of the team for helping us to literally throw the best party EVER!
