  • Our wedding was 11/4 at McCloone's Pier House- which was beyond amazing and fantastic! We wanted to block rooms at Ocean Place for our guests. We were told the following by Todd upon booking: we can always add to our room block and they would call if rooms were running short to give us a chance; we were responsible to pay for all the rooms in our block from the time we booked a year out even is someone canceled; our autistic niece would have an adjoining room so she and her sitter and parents would have access to each other; the bar would be open until 1 Am after our wedding; our brunch would be 19.95 a head and we would have a section of the dining room for our guests. After booking: our reservation was seriously messed up about a dozen times shorting us rooms until we called higher up multiple times to fix it; they tried to put my autistic niece and her parents in a pet friendly room because it was all that was left adjoining; they booked the entire hotel and we couldn't add to ou...

  • We had a terrific experience with Michelle DeSalvo, the catering sales manager at OP. We already had booked at the location when Michelle started employment there (in 9/2015), and she was immediately up-to-speed with all of our wedding details. She was extremely organized -- a big plus for me because I was planning my NJ shore wedding from Massachusetts. When she said she was aiming for a flawless event, she really meant it -- and indeed that was achieved as far as our OP experience. The planning process was smooth and easy -- unheard of in wedding planning! We and our guests loved the food, which was well-timed by Atila, our banquet manager, and served by Dawn, our captain, and her team. What a great place now that Michelle is in charge of the wedding planning!

  • Keep the communication open.. Keep them posted with any changes - event it doesn't have any thing to do with them. Everyone at the Ocean Place have been wonderful to work with.. But there is one person who was exceptional. Gioia Petaccia. She was amazing, very direct, extremely pleasant, patient with all of our changes, and was there every moment and keeping an eye on everything that is happening and keeping me posted with any changes, updates etc., and budget.. A BIG THANK YOU GIOIA to make my daughter's wedding day a memorable one.

  • We had our wedding at Ocean Place Resort & Spa and we could not have picked a better place to have our wedding. We booked our venue about 3 months before our wedding, and even with the short amount of planning time we had, Michelle and the entire staff at Ocean Place were amazing! They answered all of our questions, were very accommodating, and made our day unforgettable. We decided to have a beach BBQ themed wedding on the sand in front of the hotel, and it was great! The food was absolutely AMAZING! All of our guests complimented the food and said it was the best food they had ever eaten at a wedding. Throughout the night, the staff was constantly checking up on us to make sure everything was ok, and if there was anything else we needed. An added bonus was having all the people who were walking on the Long Branch boardwalk, stop and watch our wedding reception, and congratulate us. We could not have asked for anything else and everyone at Ocean Place made our wedding unforgettable, w... Read more

  • I absolutely loved the Ocean Place for our wedding, it was the ideal venue for my husband and I. Kerry Speiser was our coordinator and she did an incredible job coordinating. I loved how she paid attention to every single little detail, as a bride, that really put me at ease. Thank you Kerri and the team at Ocean Place for an incredible wedding day, we will never forget it!! Happily Married for almost 1 year, Renee and Chris

  • We had our beach front wedding at the Ocean Place and it was nothings short of spectacular! The entire staff was very professional and accommodating. Our hotel room blocks were coordinated and gift bags delivered with no issues at all. We had the privilege of working with Kerri Speiser, who ensured that every detail was met for our special day. We also selected our entertainment company and baker from their list of preferred vendors and they exceeded our expectations as well. We would highly recommend the Ocean Place to make their wedding dreams come true!

  • My rehearsal dinner bonfire, wedding and after wedding brunch were all held at Ocean Place. I could not be more pleased with the quality, professionalism and comfort the hotel offered myself, husband and our guests. And not to mention, the renovations and location are just remarkable! Everyone that attended the wedding felt like they just arrived at a destination wedding! Stephanie Lubischer and staff were a dream to work and plan with. When you are working with detail oriented and talented staff, planning one of the biggest days of your life suddenly isn’t stressful and makes a world of a difference. Lisa Drake was phenomenal to work with in setting up the room block. The suite we stayed in was breathtaking, clean and comfortable. Our guests had no complaints about food, beverage or service throughout the entire weekend- and neither did my husband and I. All the captains, maître d's, servers, bartenders were quick, efficient and extremely attentive. I don't think I ever attended a... Read more

  • Everyone attending our wedding said it was the most AMAZING wedding they had ever been to... we could not agree more! The beauty of the ocean, the food, the staff, everything was perfect! Ocean Place exceeded our expectations in every single aspect, we didn't have to worry about anything. They gave us the wedding of our dreams. We have already started planning our one year Anniversary beach bonfire at Ocean Place and can't wait to relive our BEAUTIFUL day!

  • The hunt for your wedding venue can be daunting but Ocean Place Resort and Spa had everything we dreamed of and more. If you're looking to get married on the beach, have hotel rooms on location for you and your guests, and have a reception hall that overlooks the ocean, this is your place! Two added bonuses: 1 - They are a pet-friendly resort, meaning Fido can stay with you and be a part of your beach ceremony (our English Bulldog was our ring bearer), and 2 - They import palm trees from Florida just ahead of summer, which gives the beach a nice, tropical vibe. You can also arrange to have your rehearsal dinner on site, either outside with a bonfire or indoors at the resort's Seaview Restaurant. We opted for indoors since we had a smaller group, and I must say the food was absolutely delicious! A big thank you to Ann for helping us arrange the dinner and working with us on the menu! I can't begin to thank Kerri enough for the amazing job she did as our wedding coordinator. She wa... Read more

  • It was a perfect day and the perfect venue! Having all my guests stay on site made it a lot of fun. We spent the night before all hanging out at the Tiki bar outside, enjoying live music. The food was amazing and so much of it! My guests are still raving about it. The staff was super accommodating and helpful with everything we needed. I really could not have imagined a better place for my special day.

  • Let me start by saying our ceremony was beautiful and we had a ton of fun at our reception (bc we had a good dj and a kickass photobooth)We decided on a September'15 date and booked OP in August'14. The wedding coordinator we booked with, corresponded with, worked out many details with, etc left the company unannounced to us in July 2015. I had tried reaching out to her via email, was not receiving a response, called up OP and was told she was no longer worked for the company. In fact, the woman who I booked a hotel block through for the weekend of our wedding (at OP), also left the company unexpectedly. To make matters worse, the employees who took spots of both our wedding coordinator and wedding block specialist had NO RECORD of any of my communication with these former employees. I was back at square one with only two months until the wedding. My husband and I had to take a trip down there (we live in Northern NJ) on a Sunday to hash out all of the details with our new coordi... Read more
