I had my wedding at The Deck on May 15th, 2009, and it was absolutely amazing. I was living in Virginia at the time and was just about to go insane trying to find the perfect place in Philadelphia, as we were going to be relocating soon. Then....I found The Deck and suddenly sanity was retured.
The Deck came into my life at the perfect time, and the staff was so amazing to work with. Everything that I wanted and needed they were there to listen and help make it happen. And working with a long distance bride isn't always easy, but they are total professionals and kept reassuring me that everything was taken care of, and it really was!
When my soon to be husband (at the time) and I came an toured the facilities, we were blown away, it was modern, it was large and spacious, it had options on top of options for whatever I wanted. And then we walked outside to THE DECK.....and I was speechless. I envisioned our ceremony on the upstairs deck, overlooking the water at sunset, and then coming down to our own lower deck space with all of our guests.....and that is exactly what we got. You couldn't have a more beautiful setting, the food was amazing and no matter if you are inside or outside, the experience will be like no other!
Everything that I needed was there, and the pricing was so on point, and with the work that they put into my wedding, I feel like I should have paid more! All of my guests and even my parents absolutely could not get over the amazing atmosphere of the people and the venue, it gives me chills just talking about it.
Overall, I just can't say enough good things about this venue for our wedding....it was the wedding of our dreams, and if you are planning a wedding in the area, this is a MUST SEE!

When my (now) husband and I were looking for a place to host our wedding, we were just not sure where we'd be able to do what we WANTED, yet have a beautiful setting, and be local for all of our guests. We researched a bit online, and found The Deck (which we were only familiar with as the old "Lagoon" near our home). The pictures online looked beautiful, so we made an appointment with the manager (the ever wonderful MJ!). We walked in, walked around, and decided on the spot that it would be perfect! The outside deck is beautiful and overlooks the water, there is a bar right next to it for a "cocktail hour", and we chose the smaller of the two reception rooms which overlooks the park & water as well. Our evening wedding was GORGEOUS! The guests couldn't stop talking about how beautiful the venue was, the night was, the view was. And the food was phenomenal! If people were not talking about the view, they were talking about how delicious the food was.
Of course the build-up to the wedding was a great experience as well. As a couple, we're pretty laid back... and a bit "off-beat". MJ was completely open to whatever ideas we had (We released butterflies at the end of our ceremony... it was beautiful!), and also had many great suggestions to make everything come together & look perfect (for example, she showed an example of some menu cards another bride had used to "dress up" the table settings...and so I made some, and they looked perfect!). As well she was willing to work with us around our budget, which helped us out MAJORLY.
On top of MJ's personalized help, we also had a group of staff members that were genuinely happy to help us out the day of (and in the months approaching) the big day. Major shout out to Mary, the best bartender ever!
I will definitely be suggesting this as a venue to pretty much anyone that needs one in the future! Weddings, receptions, parties, anything. They were great!

My husband and I searched high and low for the perfect place for our wedding and nothing felt quite like what we were looking for until we came to the Deck.
We were treated wonderfully from the second we walked in to see the place to even know if we contact MJ and say we are coming down for couple drinks.
Our ceremony was beautiful!!! Everyone that sees my pictures has asked what island we got married on!
Delicious food! Top shelf alcohol! Gorgeous room! The sun was setting during dinner and we ate by candlelight.
MJ took care of everything! Her and the staff are truly professional with nothing but a focus on making sure our day was perfect. I didn't have to lift a finger!
So we couldn't go to the tropics so we brought the tropics to us!!!! I wish I could do it all over again!!!
MJ thanks for everything, you are truly the best at what you do!

I was so sick of going to the same weddings, at the same places, and seeing the same things. The Deck has so many options and was so flexible to my needs and budget. Their wedding/event planner walked me through everything, but was open to try new things and make my wedding unique. Other venues I had contacted made me feel like I was just another bride that was going to get the same package as every other wedding. The wedding planner at the Deck made me feel like anything I wanted she would make it happen, even though I was on a tight budget.
I went to the Deck one night before I decided to have my wedding there and the service and food completely won me over. The bartender knew us all by name and the food was fantastic!
You can get married outside overlooking the water, move right on to the deck for cocktails, then have your reception in a glass room by the water/park, in their night club (which is where I had mine), or in their traditional ball room, finally you can continue your party after the reception with the indoor/outdoor club. Most of the time weddings fly and the reception is over before you know it. But with the Deck you and your guests can stay as long as you like and keep the party going. It may not look like much from the outside, but once you get in and on the water it is a beautiful, tropical venue that I would highly recommend to any bride looking for something a little different from your typical wedding.
Waterfront destination weddings...close to home
If your dream day includes a cocktail reception surrounded by Hibiscus and Palm Trees, with a Sunset that resembles the breathtaking view of Key West, Florida, then look no further. The Deck at Harbor Pointe is the perfect choice for your special day!
