  • The Windrift provided a stunningly beautiful beach front locale for the wedding and beautiful lodging for our guests. Add in the fun factor along with friendly, attentive staff and service and the result is the perfect wedding weekend from start to finish. We will always be grateful!

  • If you are looking for the perfect beach wedding, with the best service, food, accomodations and overall experience, look no further! Let me start from the beginning.....my fiance and I are beach people - we call it our "happy place", so naturally we wanted to get married at our happy place. By the time we got engaged and started looking at venues down the shore, many Saturday night weddings were already booked. We looked at the Windrift and much to my disappointment, they were booked for all Saturday 2015 weddings. I SWORE I would not be the bride that got married on a Friday, so we started looking at venues where we live, in Philadelphia, PA. Most were nice ,elegant, etc, but not one place gave me that "feeling" that I would get when we were at the shore, and more specifically when we would visit the Windrift. After telling myself to get over the Friday night wedding issue (and trust me, it was really hard!), I called DeeDee and asked about any remaining Fridays, and thank... Read more

  • From the moment we decided to review the Windrift as a possible venue for our wedding, we just had a feeling it would be the perfect place. The event and banquet coordinators went above and beyond helping us to have the perfect day. In addition to the coordinators, the front desk staff and service staff were kind, helpful and always pleasant to work with as well. We would certainly recommend the Windrift for your wedding celebration.

  • Where do I begin? The Windrift is THE MOST ideal reception venue in the entire world! There is literally not one thing I would have changed about our wedding night. Ronda and DeeDee were extremely responsive throughout the entire process, and always worked with me with anything I needed. The food was phenomenal, our guests are still talking about it! The staff was nothing short of amazing. They all worked so hard to make all 181 of our guests night as perfect as possible. They never stopped moving the whole night and were always available if anyone needed them. We had a large wedding, 183 including ourselves, and never once felt crowded or too close. The set up is perfect for weddings of all sizes! The venue was decorated so beautifully and was perfectly clean. We had the best night ever, thanks to the Windrift.The views that the Windrift has to offer are absolutely timeless. Our family and friends have been talking about the views, service, and how wonderful the night was for days str... Read more

  • We had looked at several venues at the Jersey shore but the Mrs. pretty much had her heart set on the Windrift from the beginning. My wife and I were wed there this April and we truly couldn't have had a more memorable or wonderful day. Much of the credit is due to the amazing duo of catering and planning management that the Windrift has on staff. Between DeeDee and Ronda, everything was smooth and easy-going, exactly the way my wife prefers it. Planning and coordinating was a breeze with their help. From the beginning, both DeeDee & Ronda did everything in their power to ensure that our day was every bit as special and accommodating to our guests as humanly possible. We had family with varying degrees of requests, whether it be food allergies or handicap accommodations, and none were too tall the task. They were absolute sweethearts throughout the entire process. The food and cocktails were excellent. The cocktail hour hors d'oeuvres, Chicken Baltimore & risotto are continually ra... Read more

  • Our wedding at the Windrift on April, 18, 2015 was everything that we could have hoped for to make our day as special as it was. The food, the ambiance and especially the view were all absolutely amazing. I can't say enough wonderful things about Dee Dee. She is so sweet and professional and was accommodating to every request we had wether big or small. The rest of the staff were all equally as great, going above and beyond to make everything so fabulous. If you are looking to have your wedding down the shore you can't go wrong with the Windrift.

  • The Windrift was the ideal setting for our fall wedding. Ronda and DeeDee were wonderful to work with and made the entire planning process comfortable and easy. We had some extraordinary requests and Ronda worked tirelessly to make sure we got everything we wanted. Our guests were amazed by the breathtaking scenery of an ocean-front wedding and loved the option to be inside or out on the deck. We opted for the cocktail party package and were very pleased with the food and the level of service. If you are looking for a venue that is contemporary and upscale casual with amazing views, definitely consider The Windrift for your Avalon/Stone Harbor wedding.

  • Our daughter and her husband got married on 9/27/14 at the Windrift Hotel. From our initial meeting with DeeDee Ruggierio, through the end of the reception, our entire family couldn't have been more pleased. DeeDee, Ronda Pursglove and their staff were extremely professional and did everything in their power to accommodate our every wish. The venue was absolutely beautiful and the food was perfection! We couldn't have asked for a better event. Thank you DeeDee and Ronda!! Don and Nancy Hartzell

  • I cannot say enough about the Windrift as our choice for the Venue for our Beach Wedding Reception. From the very beginning all the way to the last moment, Dee Dee and Rhonda, the Banquet Coordinators, were amazing! So accommodating, so easy, calming, returned phone calls and/or emails promptly, made me feel that I never had to worry about anything. We rented out the Top Level 3 deck for our party and the way they set it up was gorgeous. We had rain predicted for that day and in fact it rained right up until the ceremony started but Rhonda called me with a Plan B in case it didn't stop. She had it under control! The service was amazing and the food.... Omg I'm still hearing from my guests about the incredible Crab and Sea Bass we had! And I have a shellfish allergy and Rhonda remembered that and specifically had the chef make me my own plate, just incase there was any cross contamination that would've taken place with the utensils. Everything was perfect and my husband and I wo... Read more

  • The Windrift was the absolute perfect choice for our wedding weekend! The atmosphere is unlike any other place we were able to find. We wanted to make sure we could have an indoor/outdoor feel the day of the wedding and having the roofdeck for the cocktail hour was just the start of an amazing night under the stars! The 2nd floor deck is right off of the dance floor so people were literally dancing the night away under the stars! It was such an amazing atmosphere to have the option to go outside and lounge in front of the fire on the couches sipping your cocktail. The food was fantastic - everything raved about the filet! The staff were so accomodating and professional throughout the entire evening. I cannot say enough about Ronda and DeeDee. Ronda was a true professional and really worked with me to meet my exact needs. I always felt like she had my back. DeeDee is the absolute sweetest person. She was so accomodating and helpful from day 1. Knowing that we would be working with her t... Read more

  • Having our wedding at the Windrift was one of the best decisions we made! The day was gorgeous, the venue perfect, the staff was amazing, and Ronda and DeeDee (banquet and catering managers) helped us carry out our vision for our dream wedding! The level 2 reception area was decorated beautifully, the food was amazing, and we have heard nothing but good things about it from our guests! We honestly couldn't have asked for a better experience, and look forward to coming back to visit this summer!

  • My husband and I got married on the 80th St beach at The Windrift on September 27, 2014 and had our reception there to follow. The entire experience at the Windrift was incredible both leading up to the event, the day of the wedding as well. DeeDee, the wedding coordinator went out of her way to make sure that all of our needs were met. My husband is a “foodie” and DeeDee was great at accommodating all of his specific food and drink requests. The food was just as great for 125 people as it was the day of the wedding as it was the day of our tasting. I had a vision of a navy and white stripe runner for my tables and Ronda, the wedding coordinator made sure to keep checking to see if the linen suppliers were able to accommodate my request, and they did! My entire vision for the day completely came to life with the help of DeeDee and Ronda and the entire staff at the Windrift. Thanks for a wonderful wedding weekend!
