Dream Beach Venue!!!
We honestly cannot say enough great things about Windows on the Water. We got married there on Friday September 28th. From the moment we stepped in the venue we fell in love with the place. Tracy, the venue manager, was the icing on the cake. She was awesome to work with and her to-do lists enabled us to stay on track, which was important to us since we booked them only 4 months out from our wedding date. The bridal attendant and the maitre D, Lady and Brandon, were phenomenal to work with as well. When we met them at our rehearsal the night before, we felt like we already knew them. They took care of all the little details and knew exactly how things were supposed to go. We had plans of our own for how the night should go but after taking their advice early on, we were happy to give up our plans and just follow their lead. They truly are professionals!Sent on 10/15/2018
Also, we were so happy that we used their recommended vendor sheet. As we were standing on the beach taking the last of our pictures before the ceremony, we realized that Lady and Brandon knew our emcee, Ryan from DJ Sounds to Go and head photographer Bogdan from Red Bank Studio Photography well. We didn’t realize how important it was at the time but looking back now, it definitely provided us with a seamless experience from start to finish.
Our guests cannot stop raving about our reception. The food was delicious. Cocktail hour can get crazy at a wedding for the bride and groom but they pulled us into the bridal suite immediately after the ceremony and gave us a private sampling. We were so happy that we didn’t miss one of the best parts of any wedding. The cocktail hour is partially outdoors (weather permitting) which was another amazing selling point of the venue. At the end of cocktail hour, while our guests went upstairs for the reception, we were able to finish enjoying the spectacular eats and treats which is a huge bonus.
The reception was gorgeous with panoramic views that only this venue can offer. The sunset and moon rising over the ocean added an aesthetic quality that you just can’t get without all those windows. Leading up to our big day, my only concern was that the 15 tables that we had were going to be tight, but I was certainly wrong. We had 160 people and there was no backing your chair up into the table behind you. Also with the venue being setup the way it is, the dance floor extends the length of the room, it provides plenty of room to dance and move around. There truly isn’t a bad thing to say about Windows on the Water (WOW). We can’t wait to go back there for one of our friend’s weddings.

I highly recommend WIndows on the Water!! It was the first and only place I looked at for my wedding and I fell in love. The staff was so helpful and nice and the food was amazing. My guests still can’t stop talking about how much fun they had and how beautiful the venue was. I wouldn’t have wanted to get married anywhere else!Sent on 05/14/2019
