Kind Words From Happy Couples

What can I say other than amazing! My husband and I got married at Crystal Point on October 18th 2019 and there's no other way to describe Crystal Point other than perfect! Both the inside and outside are absolutely gorgeous and you have so many locations to take photos. You get the hotel attached right there so you don't have to worry about your guests finding their ways to their hotels plus you get a complimentary room for both the night before and night if your wedding! On top of the venue being gorgeous, our Maître D’ Janine was absolutely on point making sure everything went according to plan, she really went above and beyond. She made sure my vendors and bridal party were in order and made sure my husband and I got whatever we asked for. All the employees really care about it being your special day and they make everyone aware that it is YOUR DAY. I cannot show my gratitude on how much it meant to us how much they really care and they gave us exactly what we wanted. My husband and I greatly appreciate that we got our own private cocktail hour in the bridal suite where we got to try a little of everything which was amazing especially since we did not have to fight our way to the stations. And The food!!! My guests said it was absolutely the best cocktail hour they have ever experienced. Everything about it was fantastic and your guests will not leave hungry. If you are considering Crystal Point I 100% recommend it because your day will feel like a literal fairytale!!

Thank you so much to The Crystal Point for making Anthony and I’s Wedding Day so special! We couldn’t have asked for anything more to be done to make our Happily Ever After become a reality. From the gorgeous ceremony backdrop (And beautiful Fall mums!) to the amazing cocktail hour/reception ballroom, everything was absolutely beautiful. We have had guests non-stop calling/texting/posting on social media about how this was the best Wedding they have ever been to. Thank you again from the bottom of our hearts for making our special day so perfect!

This past Saturday was absolutely magical and we truly owe it all to the Crystal Point Yacht Club and their incredible staff. The new renovations, cocktail hour, food, drinks, staff, everything was just to die for. It was everything we wanted and needed for our wedding day plus more. Salvatore and I booked our wedding at the Crystal Point two years ago, before we even knew they were going to renovate the entire place. It was beautiful before, and is absolutely BREATH TAKING now. I truly don’t even know where to begin with Janine. She bent over backwards for us all night. I am pregnant, and she made sure that I ate all night and stayed extra hydrated. She constantly reminded us that the night goes fast, and to remember to take moments for ourselves and just take everything in. We still, days later, have friends and family members specifically mentioning Janine and how amazing she was catering to us all night long. She constantly pulled us aside and came up to our sweetheart table making sure we were ok and everything was going well. There aren’t enough amazing things to say about her. We had our baby announcement at Crystal Point, had an incredible gender reveal during our reception there, and will be bringing our son there when he is born. We want to share with him the incredible memories we’ve made at this amazing place when he arrives. The Crystal Point truly holds a special place in our hearts. This place is like a home to us. Thank you Crystal Point for making our wedding day absolutely amazing and for allowing us to share these special memories with you guys at your beautiful venue!

First of all, I can’t even put into words with how grateful I am to have found Crystal Point. They went above and beyond for my husband and I and it was absolutely amazing. our Maître D, Marlyn, made sure everything was the way I wanted it and our personal waitress, Eileen, took such good care of us making sure we were eating & had something to drink the entire night. Seriously, I felt like royalty!! In addition to being well taken care of, the food was AMAZING & the new reno is gorgeous. Our wedding was 9.8.2019 & we are STILL getting compliments on everything... ESPECIALLY the bacon bar ;).. Thank you so much Crystal Point!!!!!!!!

My husband and I had our wedding ceremony and reception at Crystal Point on Aug 23, 2019. We had the most amazing day and can’t thank the team at Crystal Point enough because they played a huge role in that. I guess I should start from the beginning. Jackie gave us a tour of the venue and we fell in love, even before renovations it was beautiful. Throughout the entire planning process Jackie was there to answer any questions we had. Her prompt and helpful responses made the busy planning process so much less stressful. A few weeks before the big day we met with Janine who was so professional and made us feel confident we would have exactly what we wanted. We could tell she had amazing attention to detail when we had that initial meeting, in the weeks leading up to the wedding, and during the rehearsal. Getting ready at the hotel the morning of the wedding is so convenient. The rooms are amazing and the bridal suite comfortably fit me and my 11 bridesmaids who were getting hair and makeup. Tiffany at the hotel is so welcoming and answered all questions I had leading up to my stay. The morning of the wedding it was raining but luckily cleared up so we could have the beautiful outdoor ceremony we were hoping for. After the ceremony and before I knew it Eileen (the bridal attendant) had a drink in my hand and Janine had bustled my dress. We were given a huge assortment of food from the cocktail hour and plenty of drinks in the bridal suite. Everyone is still raving about how good the cocktail hour was! Everything at the reception was amazing, the food was incredible and they come around with seconds which our guests loved! The views were amazing, everything was perfect. Eileen made sure we had everything we needed, including a drink at all times. Thank you Crystal Point for giving us the perfect day!

Thank you to Janine, Jackie, Laura and the entire team at Crystal Point Yacht Club for giving me and my husband the wedding of our dreams. Two months later, guests are still raving about how beautiful the venue was and outstanding the food tasted! Crystal Point Yacht Club exceeded our expectations and were extremely attentive and responsive to our needs. The venue itself was breathtaking from the outdoor ceremony venue overlooking the river to the newly renovated interior (beautiful and spacious cocktail hour room, reception and bridal suite). I cannot even begin to explain how amazing the food was - I am still dreaming about the bacon bar and the seafood tower. The dinner entrees were exceptional and to our guests pleasant surprise, the staff offered second helpings of all the entrees for the guests to be able to try everything. Thank you especially to Janine - our wedding planner who went above and beyond the call of duty and was incredibly professional and caring to ensure our special day was the best day of our lives. Don’t walk, RUN to the Crystal Point Yacht Club and book your wedding there! You won’t regret - I wish I could do it all over again with them.

Where do you start thanking someone for helping you have the best weekend of your life? Janine is everything you ever could want to help nail your wedding and knows what you need before you ever knew you needed it. She was accommodating to say the VERY least, professional yet warm, and took every concern off my shoulders onto hers. She even bustled my dress so fast that i was in cocktail hour enjoying my guests the ENTIRE time. I just wish I ate more and yapped less because the food was RIDICULOUS. We looked at a handful of venues and my easygoing now-husband had the same reaction- “It’s nice-whatever you like!” Until we toured the CP and his eyes lit up like a kid on Christmas morning— and this is BEFORE the renovation had even begun! We were not an easy wedding... over 270 people, lots of loud personalities and a total bridal party of 24! The day was seamless. The cocktail room, food and overall service blew everyone away. Without asking any feedback, our families have all been getting calls all week that it is the greatest wedding people have ever been to- some saying better than their own children’s LOL. RUN do not walk to get married at the beautiful crystal point yacht club. Besides the stunning grounds and venue, the service and staff are amazing (shout out to the sweetest person ever Jackie who sold us on our dream venue with her accommodating kindness, Tiffany at CP Inn for making the weekend seamless, our seemingly-psychic fairy godmother bridal attendant Eileen who made sure our hands were never without a drink and the world’s best bartender Mark!!!) you’ll feel like you’re on cloud 9.

We had our wedding two weeks ago at Crystal Point, and we couldn’t have been happier with the way Janine, Eileen, and the rest of the staff took care of our reception! From start to finish, we could not believe how perfect everything was. The food was excellent (sooo much food!!) and the recent renovations so beautiful, and the location on the river can’t be beat. So many of our guests said it was the best wedding they’ve ever been to. They were so attentive to our needs, kept our bridal cocktail hour room stuffed with hors d’oeuvres, and got our dinner out in a timely matter so we were able to dance and socialize with all our guests. I’m so happy we chose Crystal Point for our big day, because it was worth every penny. Thank you, Janine and the rest of the staff, for giving us such a beautiful reception!

I’m truly at a loss for words when discussing how grateful I am to the Crystal Point team. From Day 1, when we first looked at the venue (we looked at roughly 12 venues) we were treated with such care from Jackie. She gave us a wonderful tour, but above all she listened, she took the time to get to know my husband and I. We didn’t feel like we were given a scripted “pitch” we felt like they wanted to tailor our day specifically to who we were as a couple. This never stopped throughout the entirety of the planning process. Jackie was always there to answer a phone call or give a quick tour when my family came in from out of town. At the end of the day, we couldn’t imagine our day without Jackie being there throughout the process she quickly went from a member of the CP team to someone we wanted sitting at the family table during the wedding. Once we got closer to our wedding day we were introduced to our maître d’, Janine. Right away we knew, she would move mountains for us if need be. She is a PROFESSIONAL. Straight to the punch, no fluff, which is exactly what you need when you enter wedding planning “crunch time”. We felt so safe in her hands and knew our wedding day would go off without a hitch. She was able to put the Jersey touch on my Pittsburgh cookie table. It was absolutely stunning! Throughout the week, I kept hearing the question from friends and family “are you stressed?” and I would simply say, “No, Janine’s got it under control.” She runs a tight ship and when she says it will get done, it magically happens. Absolute professional. Though we were never guaranteed the new cocktail room, Kyle and the CP team worked tirelessly to make sure it was ready in time for our wedding day. They worked up until the eleventh hour to make the new room absolutely gorgeous. We are endlessly grateful for all of the hard work, and our guests could not stop raving about it. On our wedding day, we were introduced to Eileen who shadowed us the entire day. We never had to ask for a thing. Both my husband and I have experience in the high-end hospitality industry in NYC and never have we experience service quite like Eileen’s. She was absolutely crucial to allowing us to enjoy our day and spend time with our family and friends. She ensured we were fed and hydrated, she was simply perfection. Last but not least, the FOOD. Again, my husband and I are foodies, we love to cook but above all we love to eat and try new things. The food at the Crystal Point will leave your guests full for a week. From the hors’ d’oeuvres to the entree everything was quality and fresh and absolutely delicious. During the cocktail hour the guests couldn’t believe there was more food to be served. Many guests proclaimed that this was the best food ever, and wished they could get a to-go bag. (Little did they know there was a cookie table and exit station waiting for them to fulfill their wishes.) I’m only 3 days removed from my wedding when writing this, but I wouldn’t change a thing about the entire day. Sure, it could’ve been a few degrees cooler 😉 but the CP team made our wedding day an absolute dream. If you’re thinking about holding your wedding at the CP, stop thinking and BOOK. You will be glad you did. I wish I could do it all over again. Once again, from Tiffany at the Inn to Kyle, Bob, Jackie, Laura, Janine, Eileen and the rest of the staff, from the bottom of our hearts, we thank you. Same time next year? 😉

My husband and I had our wedding at Crystal Point Yacht Club on June 21, and every step of the way they were amazing to work with. Anytime I had a question, Jackie and Laura were a quick email away. We had our food tasting in March, and we were already blown away by the food and the service. When we met with our maître d’ Janine, we were confident that she knew how to handle anything that came her way. She was always a text message away, and always willing to work with us to ensure that our wedding day went without a hitch. The day of our wedding it POURED, but Janine assured each of us that it was going to clear up in time for our ceremony. She made sure that the chairs were set up outside and the walkways were completely dry. Though we ended up having to take pictures inside the lobby for our first look, bridal party, and family pictures, from what we have seen from our photographer, the pictures in the lobby are absolutely stunning! We had picture perfect weather for our beautiful outdoor ceremony overlooking the Manasquan River, it was a dream come true! Eileen was our server who took great care of us the entire night, and made sure our drinks were always full! Our guests were impressed with how beautiful Crystal Point was, and have been raving about the delicious food at our cocktail hour and reception. Janine also worked with our DJ on the timing of our courses to ensure that we had plenty of time for our dancing robot! Our wedding day was absolutely perfect, and we can’t thank everyone enough at Crystal Point!”

There are not enough words to describe how perfect our wedding was! CP was simply amazing. From the day we went on the tour to the morning after our wedding I felt like CP became a part of us. When I first talked to Jackie, she made everything seem so easy and we booked on the same day of the tour! She went above and beyond during our months of planning. Then our wedding day came and our maître d’ Janine was AMAZING! Every one of my friends that has gotten married said don’t be surprised if something goes wrong but with Janine by our side NOTHING went wrong. She made all my nerves go away! Then there was Eileen who took the best care of my husband and I. I never had an empty drink all night! She ever brought up a drink from the cocktail hour that my husband loved! I’ve dreamed about my wedding for as long as I can remember and CP made all those dreams come true! Our friends and family are still talking about the cocktail hour and all the amazing food! Mike and I want all our friends to get married there so we can go back!

I was married at Crystal Point on June 1, 2019! It has been a week now and all of my guests still cannot stop talking about it. The renovations to the ballroom, bridal suite and the bar were so beautiful! Our guests (and ourselves) had seconds and thirds of our dinner. The food was TO DIE FOR! Our maître d’, Janine, was so beyond helpful. I mean... she literally carried my flower girl down the aisle. She continued to help fix my extremely heavy bustle all night long. From start to finish, Janine was right there making everything run so smoothly. I am begging my newly engaged friends to get married here so I can enjoy a wedding as a guest. The bridal suite was so beautiful and such a lovely place to run off to when I needed a minute to breathe from all of the dancing. Everyone has told us that this was the most beautiful, organized and fun wedding they have been too. I recommend it to all future bride and grooms over and over and over again. Crystal Point was the only venue we looked at. We literally did not need to look further as it was LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT! Thank you so much to the entire Crystal Point Staff for making our wedding the absolute best day of our lives and SOOOO stress free!

There are truly not enough words to describe how amazing Crystal Point is! From the moment we met Jackie & toured Crystal Point, we knew that we had to have our wedding there! Jackie was beyond accommodating and such a caring person! She never once pushed us or made us feel rushed to make a decision. Throughout so many back and forth e-mails, Jackie was always kind and helpful, and helped us pick the perfect day for our wedding! Their renovations are beyond beautiful and their views from the ballroom are absolutely amazing. We were married on May 26th and our guests are continuing to rave about the excellent food and service! So many people have told us that this was the best wedding they have ever been too! Janine was our maître d’and she was beyond accommodating as well! Janine truly took care of every detail and made sure that everything was perfect for us! Janine is so organized and made sure that our ceremony took place outside, despite the incoming rain! It was truly timed perfectly. The entire Crystal Point staff was amazing to work with from start to finish. We would recommend them a thousand times over! Thank you to the entire Crystal Point staff for an amazing & stress free day!

We had our wedding reception at Crystal Point a few weeks ago and still can't find the right words to express how thankful we are for everything the staff did to make our day UNREAL ... literally a dream. Janine was like a second mother and made sure everything went off without a hitch. We are so so thankful for all she did for us. We felt so comfortable and at home with everyone from Crystal Point from the day we signed our contract. Everything came together spectacularly - from the food (which EVERYONE has been raving about) and drinks to the partying. Just perfect. Eileen was amazing and made sure my husband and I had plenty to eat (and drink :)) the entire night. She was a life saver. My parents were also so thrilled with how everything turned out and had an amazing time. Thank you for always answering all of my mom and my questions over the last year! Would love to do it all over again for our 1 year anniversary?!?!?!? THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!

My husband and I were married at Crystal Point on 10/21/18 and over a year later, family and friends are still complementing our wedding! The staff could not have been more accommodating and easy to work with. The food was delicious and we still get told that to this day! Any questions or concerns we had, the staff got right back to us and made sure we weren’t worrying. Our wedding day was honestly perfect. I cannot recommend Crystal Point enough and thank them enough for our wedding day being as great as it was!

My husband and I got married here 05/05/2018! Our wedding and reception couldn't have been any more perfect! To this day, we still have people tell us that our wedding is the one to beat. We love it! Everything with Crystal Point was amazing and we couldn't have chosen a better venue for our special day.
