When Phil and I were planning our October 2016 wedding in the summer of 2015, we knew we wanted to find some place classic and beautiful for our ceremony and reception. The Berkeley Oceanfront Hotel was our first, only, and perfect choice. From the planning to the execution, everything went smoothly and easily for us and for our guests. Amy was a pleasure to work with and was available at any time to answer our questions. The photos are absolutely stunning and we keep hearing from our guests on how our wedding was just so glamourous and classic. We had our ceremony in the Oval room and for the reception we moved across the hall to the Continental Ballroom as we were a smaller group of 100. Thank you, Amy and the Berkeley, for a wonderful experience!

My husband and I planned our wedding in 4 months. We looked into a few venues- The Berkeley actually be the first venue! I couldn't get the venue out of my head. We loved everyone that came with the Berkeley. They were are a family here and we knew it would be easy planning with them. Amy was absolutely amazing throughout the process. I feel as though she became part of the family while planning. The day of she went above and beyond for me and I am SO thankful for her- she did more than she needed for me and made me feel extremely comfortable and at ease the day of. She is also so responsive and helpful with the 21 question you have a day. She really made me feel like I was not alone. If you are considering this venue BOOK IT! You can't go wrong. From Amy to Bueno Sera Catering they make for an awesome team and a SMOOOOOTH wedding day! You're in the best of hands here. Thank you- B&B Zeller

I wish we could do it all over again! Amy, hands down is top notch to work with. Always letting me know, she was there for me. If I had an issue no matter how small, she was responsive, attentive and wanting to solve it with a smile and her calm demeanor at hand. The rooms we used for our wedding are gorgeous! You will not find anything else like it up and down the Jersey Shore. The detailed crown moldings, large windows over looking the ocean, high ceilings, beautiful lighting and chandeliers... I could go on and on but its really something you need to see for yourself to truly appreciate the exquisite detail. If you are looking for a classic and elegant venue, you need to put The Berkeley on your list. And when you call, ask for Amy. You will thank me!

My husband and I couldn't have been happier with The Berkeley Oceanfront Hotel and their staff! Although Asbury Park is slightly limited when it comes to wedding venues, we knew we wanted to get married there and the Berkeley had everything we needed. They make it easy to choose vendors, all of whom were wonderful and they were very organized and accommodating. Berkeley (the sales manager) and Katrina, our maitre d' from Falco's were truly amazing. Our wedding day was perfect and we didn't have to worry about anything because it was all taken care of. Since we weren't getting married in a church and didn't want our ceremony on the beach, we were able to work with the hotel in order to have our ceremony in the reception room before the cocktail hour, which saved us a lot of stress and money. Peter James (the florist) is so incredibly talented. Our flowers were beautiful and beyond our expectations. Falco's food was delicious and our cake from The Chocolate Carousel was also beautiful and delicious. Everything was well worth the money.

My family, husband and I fell in love with Amy the moment she introduced herself! She has such a wonderful personality and always has a smile on her face! Amy was such an unbelievable pleasure to work with while planning our wedding! We planned our wedding from Georgia and she ALWAYS made it a point to pencil us in for a walk through while we were visiting the area for the holidays. She was quick to respond to any questions or concerns and was up to make anything happen for our Harry Potter themed wedding!
The Berkeley Oceanfront Hotel was our dream wedding venue! Asbury Park is where my husband and I fell in love and we knew we HAD to get married there! Our wedding package included the Oval Room, Versailles Room, and Crystal Ballroom. Our guests have not stopped talking about how breathtakingly beautiful the venue is!
On the day of our June 12th wedding, Amy was there bright and early to get us up on the roof for our first look! This option became available only a few days prior and it turned out absolutely perfect! Our night went amazing as well! Chris took over in the evening and kept the night running seamlessly! Overall, Amy and all of the staff at the Berkeley Oceanfront Hotel went above and beyond our expectations!

My April 10th wedding at the Berkeley was a dream come true. Amy Dimes (Events Manager) was a ray of sunshine from the moment we met; it was always "anything, just tell me what you want and how you want it". She was a joy to work with and the hotel staff were always cheery and pleasant when I dropped in for meetings or walk thrus.
Our wedding was originally Sunday Jan 24th but a blizzard came in the day prior. Amy called me from home that day to gently explain that we should consider changing our plans (understatement). She made it clear that the decision was ours and the Berkeley would accommodate either way. We had guests expected from out of town, so we made the difficult decision to postpone rather then have them travel in dangerous weather. The hotel was amazing; we didn't lose a penny and they gave us first choice of any available dates moving forward. They honored the room block rate for our guests who had managed to make it to NJ before the blizzard and got snowed in.
Our actually wedding was dreamy..... The Hotel and surrounding neighborhood is an INSANE venue and backdrop for photos!! The Ballroom we chose to accommodate our small crowd (50) was gorgeous: Pillars, a fireplace, magnificent chandeliers - charm charm charm! The Berekely worked seamlessly with my vendors (Couture Events of NJ; specifically PeterJames for flowers, Ephemera Photo for pics and Gitty Berger for Make-up) - i had ZERO stress hanging out in the bridal ready room (huge two room suite w 2 lavs, hair and make up stations, etc) getting slammed up, listening to music and sipping coffee and champagne.
I could go on and on, but heres a word: PERFECTION!

The Berkeley Oceanfront Hotel was our FIRST and ONLY choice for our wedding reception and we had such a wonderful experience from beginning to end. The Berkeley is stunningly, beautiful with so much historical charm! They are no other venues in the area that can offer so much historic authenticity! Everyone was so taken back by the event space. Our overnight guests were very happy with their hotel stay as well. It was not only convenient for our guests to stay right at the reception location, but the rooms were spacious and clean and the beds were very comfortable. The Berkeley Wedding staff--- including Amy, Chris, & Francesca---were top-notch. They were friendly, easy-going, kind, enthusiastic, and very accommodating. Awesome hospitality! But putting all that aside, they were simply good-hearted people that wanted nothing but the best for us. They made the entire wedding planning process fun and memorable! Five Stars across the board :)
