I love my job so much! It brings me so much joy. One really fun aspect of this job is all the amazing and beautiful locations I have the pleasure of Officiating Wedding Ceremonies at. I live in Point Pleasant Beach NJ and there are so many great venues in Ocean and Monmouth County that I would like to share with you.
First, I would like to start with small venues. Many people prefer a smaller more intimate wedding and are looking for a venue that doesn't have a 100 person minimum-or even a 65 person. They would also like a venue that offers a private room to accommodate both the ceremony and reception-or perhaps you would like to have your ceremony at a local beach or park and use your venue as a back up.
We have some excellent local venues to choose from! Below are a few of my favorites.
Tell them Andrea sent you!
TheWharfside , Point Pleasant Beach NJ
You will enjoy beautiful views of the inlet and the boats. The Wharfside has excellent food. Nancy and her staff do a fantastic job with events of all sizes.
The Grenville Inn in Bay Head is a beautiful location for a small wedding ceremony. Have your ceremony inside by the fire place or on the beach located just a few blocks away, its an easy walk. They have fabulous food and newly renovated rooms, as well as a beautiful porch.
The Poached Pear, Point Pleasant Beach, NJ
Excellent food! This elegant restaurant has private party room that fits up to 50 guests and is located in the shopping district of Point Pleasant Beach. There is plenty of parking
La Dolce Vita, Belmar, NJ. Excellent food and located across the street from the beach. La Dolce Vita has a beautiful front room with views of the beach. Have your wedding on 4th street beach and walk across the street for your celebration.

Porta is a personal favorite of mine. It is a unique restaurant in Asbury Park , walking distance from the beach which makes it a perfect location for after your beach ceremony as well as a venue to hold your ceremony in. It can accommodate 30 to 175 guests
Pascal and Sabine is a beautiful French Restaurant in Asbury Park and can accommodate 15-70 guests
Waves on Main in Belmar has a private party room that can accommodate up to 30 guests. It's less than a mile from the beach, so this is the perfect location after your beach ceremony!
Aqua Blu in Toms River Is a fantastic location for a small ceremony. Have your ceremony there or at The Lavallette Gazebo over looking the bay (perfect for sunset or anytime of day/evening) located just a few miles away over the bridge. Good food and great service!
