The Gables offers the perfect location for your Long Beach Island wedding. Whether you are celebrating a romantic second wedding or a renewal of vows, this is the wedding without the stress, aqua tulle bridesmaid’s dresses, and over-enthusiastic DJs. As you sweep down the aisle to the sound of our 1933 Steinway baby grand, or come as a barefoot bride from our beautiful beaches, you will have a wedding and reception that truly reflects the two of you and your relationship.
This beautifully restored Victorian New Jersey inn located in historic Beach Haven, NJ on LBI provides just the right setting for an intimate wedding and reception. In summer and fall, you can opt for the flower-filled garden courtyard (the bride can make a fabulous entrance through the vine-covered pergola); in winter, a crackling log fire in the large parlor and gracious dining room and a sweeping staircase add magical touches. The entire inn can accommodate over 100 for a sit-down reception and approximately 150 for a cocktail-style event. Our highly talented Executive Chef, Richard Diemer and his culinary team can be relied upon for catering this important event. Your guests will appreciate our on-site bed and breakfast accommodations, and our location near the Jersey Shore makes it the ideal place for your honeymoon getaway.

The Gables is a truly magical place for a wedding. The elegant dining rooms are intimate and lovely, and the garden is spectacular. From the start, Sondra and Sandy made our wedding vision their first priority. Their attention to detail was meticulous and the quality of of their service was second to none. Perhaps the most memorable part of the wedding was the food. Our guests were delighted with the unique menu that was served. It was a sumptuous meal that was lovingly crafted and far and above typical wedding fare. Many of our guests told us that ours was, by far the best wedding they had ever attended.

We loved working with the both of you! Your wedding was such a personal expression of style, music and food. I loved every minute of the planning and the reception.
The fact that you booked with us when we were still in shambles from a fire and the trust you placed in us means so much.
May your life together be blessed.

We booked our wedding at the Gables over two years in advance. Unfortunately the fire did not allow us to have the wedding at the Gables. Sondra and Sandy immediately found another venue for us. I cannot say enough good things about Sondra. She worked under such difficult circumstances helping other displaced brides and trying to get her business back up and running. Despite all that we had the most incredible wedding. Sondra always made herself available day or night with regards to planning the day. Our guests are still talking six months later about our wedding and how amazing it was. The room looked spectacular (the good weather that day was a big help), and the food and services were phenomenal. It was a first class affair. We highly recommend The Gables. Working with Sondra and Sandy was a pleasure.

Our wedding was originally scheduled at The Gables, however, the fire there on Easter weekend made that impossible. Sondra took the initiative to help us locate an alternate venue and worked diligently to make arrangements so that The Gables could cater the event at Williams Cottage Inn. The reception and dinner exceeded our high expectations. The service was outstanding. Our guests raved about the food. Sondra and Sandy rose above difficult circumstances to deliver a truly first-class event. Their attention to detail was amazing, and included such touches as placing rose-buds throughout the reception rooms and arranging a small plate of appetizers for the bridal couple who were focused on greeting their guests rather than sampling the delicious appetizers. If the Gables staff can do such an exeptional job under such trying conditions, imagine how well they would handle a wedding in their own venue.

Agnes and John are the most wonderful dance and life partners I know.
They stuck with The Gables through thick and thin, after a devastating fire and we accomplished an awesome wedding with an eclectic group of friends from all over the globe.
We can't thank you enough for the kind words and support.
You are so lucky to have found one another, and we are so lucky to be a part of your day.

The Gables was the perfect place to have our fairy tale wedding. The staff was very friendly and professional and treated us as though we were their own family. Food and service was excellent, rooms very intimate and cozy. The grounds out back were transformed into a beautiful and ellegant garden for our outdoor ceremony. They deffinetly know what they are doing and I recommend them highly.

The Gables gave us our dream wedding! Amazing food, beautiful gardens, one room more gorgeous than the next, and Sondra! Sondra will make planning hassle free...she's fantastic at pulling it all together! Her staff is incredible. You will be greeted and helped by everyone and treated like royalty. Wedding food is notorious for being mediocre, but you will find the opposite here. My friends told me they were so impressed with how much I ate and that they never saw a Bride eat so much on their wedding day :). We had the house for the weekend and I highly suggest this. You will feel completely at home with family and friends around you.We can't wait to go back...before our 1 year anniversary of course :) Thanks to everyone at The Gables for making our wedding day better than we ever imagined.
Love, Abby and Seth Match

We were married at The Gables on 09/10/11 and I couldn't have asked for anything more. We had a small wedding, only about 60 guests and it was perfect! The ceremony as well as cocktail hour and dancing was held in the garden and we tented it since there was a chance of rain. The owner Sondra was such a great person to work with it made planning the rest of the wedding easier since I didn't have to keep on top of her. Everyone raved about the location, the decor and especially the food! The staff was friendly and courteous. We also took the 5 rooms for ourselves and several out-of-town guests which was a great choice. After the wedding we went upstairs and hung out with a few good friends to recap the night and enjoy some goodies.

We had a fairy tale wedding at The Gables on June 18, 2011! The food was fabulous -- thank you Chef Richard! The service and attention to detail was outstanding -- thank you Sondra and staff -- so professional and personal at the same time! Two months after our wedding, and all our guests are still raving about the food, the accommodations, the gardens, everything about the Gables was top notch. Our wedding cake, made by Sondra's pastry chef was the best we ever had! It was a beautiful, elegant, intimate wedding -- done exactly the way we wanted it!

We decided to get married in January of 2009. We emailed the Gables, they met with us the next weekend, and 4 months later we had literally the perfect wedding.
They let you customize the menu, so you can request all of your favorite dishes. The bride is vegan, and they were quite good about meeting her dietary restrictions, even going so far as to make a vegan layer of the wedding cake. The food was simply amazing, as good as any top restaurant in NYC. The service was prompt and professional. Because the Gables is so flexible, we were able to have an intimate and upscale reception that fully reflected our aesthetic and taste as a couple. Not to mention - we had so much fun that the party continued even after our end time. No one wanted to leave!
The inn itself is gorgeous inside and out, and the rooms upstairs are beautiful. The pictures on their website hardly do the inn justice! The opportunity for pictures is endless and the beach is right there, too.
Our guests have been telling us that this was the best reception they ever attended - including many who attended the weddings of their own children!
