The Avenue gave us the wedding of our dreams. From the start we wanted to have something a bit different from the traditional sit down banquet hall receptions. When we saw the ocean view from the roof top and the great layout, we were sold. We never even saw any other venues! I was planning the wedding from San Francisco and Nancy and Chris were very accommodating and helpful throughout the whole thing, even working with my mom at some points to make arrangements. The palm trees and setting and lanterns played perfectly into our Tropical Garden Party theme and having the ceremony on the rooftop with the sounds of the waves was unforgettable. Also, the price was much more accommodating (especially for a Saturday wedding) as they didn't have any guest minimums and only have a room fee that is waived once you reach a certain dollar amount (can be for people OR food/add-ons!). We had the most perfect 80 degree day (which is no easy feat in June) and although it was a little hot during the ceremony (at 3:30pm), the sunset was amazing. They even let us do a sparkler send-off! So many of our guests said it was the best and coolest wedding they'd ever been to. Many of them couldn't stop talking about how when they got off the elevator they were immediately greeted with a glass of champagne and then crazy ocean views. The food was delicious as well (seriously GET THE SHORT RIB & MAC & CHEESE!!) and our guests loved the open bar. Thanks for everything!

We had our ceremony and wedding on the rooftop deck and outdoor/indoor area at Avenue and it was simply spectacular. I really can't think of one thing that I would have changed. Nancy and Chris were so easy to work with, always professional and extremely patient and responsive with the questions we had over the months leading up to the wedding about vendors, decor, logistics, etc. Both our photographer and videographer, who had never shot weddings at Avenue, raved about the space, the natural light and what a wonderful wedding it was. Our ceremony on the rooftop deck was intimate, but we also had the spectacular view of the ocean and people enjoying the beach as we were fortunate to have a sunny, gorgeous day. Most importantly, the Avenue team was exceptional and attentive and did everything they could to take care of us and make our day extremely special!

My husband and I got married on a Friday night this past September on the second-floor roof deck and lounge at Avenue. From start to finish, Chris Toohey and Nancy Mascera made our wedding amazing! They both expertly guided us through the entire process, and accommodated our many questions.

The venue was perfect for our evening ceremony and reception. The outdoor roof deck area overlooks the ocean, and was set up perfectly for our ceremony. The transitional area with comfy chairs and an outdoor fireplace were wonderful, as was the indoor space, complete with a dedicated elevator, bathrooms, and bar. We had 110 guests for a dinner cocktail reception, and there was a perfect amount of space for guests to mingle.

The food was amazing, with an extensive selection of high-end apps, small plates, and entrees to choose from. Our vegan friend said her custom made entree was outstanding. All our guests raved about the food, including the short rib with polenta and branzino we selected.

Chris and Nancy worked seamlessly with our vendors to create the perfect wedding. If I had to do it all over again, I would do it exactly the same way.

There are weddings, then there was OUR wedding. From the day we booked Avenue, until the wedding day, Nancy and Chris have been the most helpful, attentive, accommodating, and understanding wedding coordinators that we could have ever wanted. It was virtually stress-free working with Avenue. Their professionalism, organization, and suggestions for decor and vendors to make our day special, we were dealing with people who know how to throw a wedding no one will ever forget. They even accommodated my spouse's dietary restrictions (vegan) by creating a specific, delectable, dish for him to enjoy. People at our wedding (about 100 adults, 10 children under 21), all have raved, and continue to rave about how wonderful our wedding was compared to others. Our guests all have wished it was longer, but I believe that makes for a killer wedding, have people wanting more.

We had our wedding at Avenue this past Saturday and the venue was amazing. I was incredibly nervous about the venue, because of its unconventional set up, and because I wanted to be sure my guests were satisfied being as they traveled from North Jersey and beyond to be there. Well, they were beyond impressed and had the time of their lives. The beachfront setting was unbeatable, and as far as the unconventional set up, it could't have worked out better. We had a classy, elegant, and most of all fun wedding with breathtaking views. The staff took such great care of everyone, the food was amazing, and the pictures turned out amazing. My Facebook feed is still filled with pictures friends are posting from that night, from the ocean backdrop, the pool, the beautifully architected bar, all were perfect backdrops.
Advice for brides, make sure the florist you hire is set up in time. The only hiccup we had, which was not Avenue's fault, was that our florist was not done in time. We admittedly had ordered the place fully decorated, with arrangements that turned out stunningly, however, guests had to congregate in the downstairs restaurant bar until the florist was done. This caused our ceremony to be delayed a whole hour, and caused me stress on this special day.
We also wish we had stayed upstairs with our guests for cocktail hour and went around taking pictures then, as they would have turned out beautifully and we would have had more time to talk our guests. Instead I opted to go down to the gazebo for formal pictures with the family members. The gazebo was crowded (beautiful beach day) and had a vendor card set up smack in the middle.
Also, grab your groom for some pictures on the beach at some point in the evening. Those pictures under the boardwalk turned out gorgeous.
That being said, our wedding was the most beautiful and memorable day, not only for us, but also for our guests as well.

The staff at Avenue was wonderful. Chris Toohey was SO accomodating to our every request, especially due to the surprise nature of our wedding (yes it was a surprise!) He put up with all of my many many emails and was always so nice about it. The place looked amazing, the food was a HUGE hit with the guests, the Maitre D Nancy and all the staff were great and everything went flawlessly! Thank you Avenue!

There is not a more beautiful venue than Avenue. Chris was absolutely amazing and so attentive and I loved working with him. The laid back feel and lack of organized seating was just what we were looking for. We had a few hiccups as there was no working microphone and we were informed 23 hours before the wedding that we could not have the beach ceremony we dreamed of, though the roof top deck ended up being lovely. We had the Monte Carlo package, but we added an extra hour, which I would strongly recommend since it felt like everything was over in the blink of an eye. The complimentary room at the Bungalow was amazing, and the chef was so accommodating of my very tricky garlic allergy. The access to the bridal suite was brief but accommodated our needs. Adding on valet parking was also a great opportunity for my guests. The dessert bar was to die for!!!! I have been in such bliss that I keep telling my bridal party I want to renew my vows again on a future anniversary just to experience the venue again!

My husband and I recently had our wedding at Avenue. When we had decided to include Avenue in our list of places to visit it was not our first choice, however after seeing it in person, we were in love with the ocean front location and the modern, contemporary atmosphere of this venue - not to mention the food is amazing! We had our ceremony on the deck overlooking the ocean with a cocktail reception inside/outside immediately after. Even when it stormed halfway through our reception, our ~70 guests were still comfortable and able to enjoy themselves inside. We had worked with Nancy throughout our planning, and she was extremely helpful, responsive and attentive. There were a couple of little snags that came up throughout the day, but nothing that I felt was significant enough to detract from our's and our guest's experience. Overall, we were extremely pleased with Avenue and received tons of compliments from our guests on what an unique and amazing time they had.
