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, we definitely recommend Ocean Place!!

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 coordinator. Then they tried to say that policies had changed and that we would have to pay more money as they weren't honoring our contract!! It was a disaster and a fight to get everything put back together and we still ended up paying more than what we had anticipated. We felt robbed; we had already invested so much time, money and energy into OP that there was no way we could change venues that late in the game. We were also told that we were going to be responsible for all of our setup and take down of decorations the day of the wedding. Please tell me how me or my husband were supposed to do that AND get ready for our wedding? We had also made "welcome bags" for our guests staying with us at OP, which we knew would cost $2/bag to have placed. We found out from our guests that the bags were not in the rooms but since we had told them about them, they called the front desk. Front desk told them to come down to the lobby to retrieve. Front desk still charged us for 'delivery'.

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 wedding weekend where I could say the same level of service was provided. If I could of pictured and dreamed the perfect wedding... that would be it- and it really happened!

A plus for us was the prime location of Ocean Place. Our ceremony was held offsite in a church. With time in between the ceremony and the reception it was absolutely no problem. Our guests had plenty of options at Ocean Place to relax and stroll around- the Tiki bar, the lobby bar, and beautiful pier village to walk around the boardwalk area. And before they knew it, it was cocktail hour outside with an Ocean view. After the reception our guest who booked a room could get changed and then hang out in the lobby bar for an after hours party. The convenience of having everything in the same place is more than I could of imagined. It makes a huge difference when you are running around and getting ready to host one of the biggest parties of your life!
