I got married at Westmount a few weeks ago and it was absolutely perfect. I fell in love with this place when I first (read: before I) got engaged and didn't even consider another venue. We worked with Bobby and he was great. He made sure everything went smoothly and that I had everything I needed all day. I couldn't have been happier with Westmount, and this place really is one of a kind.
Every little girl dreams about her wedding day from the time that she is small, but once she grows up and reality sets in, usually she’s disappointed to find out that the fairytale day she’s always dreamed of usually doesn’t exist. I can say with a happy heart that this was not the case for me, thanks to the Westmount Country Club. From the moment I began working with Bobby Golucci, he made sure to put every detail in place that I wanted with painstaking attention to detail. There was nothing that I asked of him that received a reply of “no”. In fact, he always said the same thing…”Anything you want, Amanda. We will make this day perfect for you”. And that they did.
Every single guest was awestruck at the stunning garden scenery as they pulled up, the exquisite design of the cocktail and ballrooms, the abundance of superior-quality, delicious food and top-shelf drinks from the moment they stepped foot through the door, and the unparalleled service provided by the staff. My ceremony and reception were perfectly adorned with breathtaking arrangements from the in-house florist, Atlas Florals, who also did every single solitary thing that I wanted, and more.
The adjective that I heard used to describe my wedding day from most people was simply “magical”. You walked in, and you felt like you entered some far-off dreamland that only exists in books or movies. It was the best day of my entire life, and I owe so much of that to the Westmount Country Club. If you want the perfect wedding, do yourself a favor and do not look anywhere else. You will surely NOT be disappointed.
We had our wedding reception at the Westmount Country Club on 10/19/13 in the Grand Ballroom. We looked at numerous venues throughout NJ and it was an easy decision after walking into the Westmount. We were blown away by the staff, the food, and the venue. They looked after the bride/groom and we're always one step ahead anticipating your needs. The food was amazing, especially the cocktail hour and the venue is beautiful! All of our guests are still commenting on how it was the best wedding they have ever been to. In one word to some everything up, flawless. We would absolutely recommend this venue and it was a pleasure working with Bobby and Karen!
We worked with Fred and he was definitely responsive and thorough throughout the entire process. He explained everything and made the process so simple and stress free. Everything was set up as I had asked, the service was amazing, food was excellent, and if anything went wrong I had not a clue. I trusted them to put on a great show and I felt like I didn't have to monitor what they were doing.. Everything was perfect and I can truly say my day and night were worry-free. I also had a ton of compliments from guests about the beauty of the Continental cocktail and reception rooms, the amazing food in both the cocktail and reception, and the attentive service. Both rooms were beautiful, classy, and had character that you don't always find at "cookie cutter" wedding venues. We had the best night of our lives!
I remember when first searching for a venue, I had envisioned a modern venue that had a touch of traditional and not a venue that I knew our local friends/family have used. Realizing quickly that after multiple trips, this would be difficult... until I met the one and only Bobby Golucci!
Walking up to the entrance of marble staircase with gorgeous (& unique) lighting fixtures hanging from the ceiling, my knees started to shake. I knew this was the place, just like that! After other venue views, I knew it would be a challenge to find a venue that accommodated a "smaller" wedding of about 170 guests on a Saturday. All Bobby had to show me was the cocktail hour room and I was sold. White chairs, couches, beautiful all white piano in the middle of the room with a gorgeous lighting fixture above, contemporary bar and bamboo flooring- it was unlike ANYTHING we have ever seen. The best part was the ceiling that had a cigar mens lounge feel with the wood and the outside where guests could sit on couches with the glassed in porch (that allowed you to still view the outside and beautifully lit trees) and heat! Our wedding was on March 29, 2014- a day that could either snow, rain or be gorgeous... we got the rain, but I didn't even care knowing I had the Westmount team!
It's not just the ambiance that makes the WCC truly "the one and only" but it's the service, service, service. No need for advertising, as you will find the venue through word of mouth. Catering to many food service families, the food was impeccable. Bobby worked with my family on every piece of the menu, we trusted his opinions and he truly worked with us on our needs/pricing. Bobby to us didn't feel like another sales guy, he felt like a part of our family. His honesty, straight forwardness, and professionalism was a breathe of fresh hair from start to finish. He did not miss a beat - i could never thank Bobby enough for all he did.
Not everything will go right, but with that said, you should not fear when at the WCC. If you have an issue (like keys getting locked in a car), WCC staff is there to help- Bobby drove us back to the hotel! Not only that, but I asked for coffee to go for our guests who were driving far given not everyone would stay at the hotel. When our guests left, they received coffee, hot chocolate, cookies, tea... the works. This made me tear up because something so small , yet meant a lot to me, was beyond what I expected. Again, thanks to Bobby.
If you are looking for the best service that is inclusive of great food, amazing staff/service, & beautifully setting - don't look anymore and have your wedding at the Westmount Country Club.
We are all hoping we get a chance to truly enjoy someone else's wedding at the WCC, because it is one of a kind. One thing I regret- us not getting a photo with Bobby :-)
I want to be invited to a wedding here so I can enjoy the incredible food and have another wonderful night. The waiters/staff were like ghosts -- for all of my guests -- bringing food and drinks without interrupting the night. The food is top notch - I wish it were a restaurant so I could go back just to eat. The cocktail hour has so many options and is so delicious by the time dinner comes you can barely eat. Our point of contact was available to me 24/7 from the moment we booked them answer texts and emails at all hours of the night. I would live the day over again just to enjoy the Westmount once more.
Amazing food & place! So excited to have my wedding here! And great top notch service!!! =)
I wish this site would let us rate venues more than 5 stars. Westmount Country Club is a 7 Star venue. It is more than a World Class venue, in fact its class reaches beyond this planet. We just had our wedding and reception here about a week ago and the staff and service that they provide under the exceptional leadership and guidance of Bobby Golucci is truly amazing. Their ability to handle South Asian/Indian weddings and receptions such as ours is out of this world, especially since these events typically host in excess of 400 guests. If you want to feel like a King and Queen for a day then this is your place. From the day we first met Bobby till the end of our reception, he was involved at every stage of the planning process. His confidence and ability to execute made the entire wedding process flawless. There are not many places or items that I can rate so highly, but from the experience I had during my event, 5 stars for Westmount Country Club is not enough, they deserve much more. I also want to give special thanks to my day of attendant Mr. Mark, you are a true inspiration to what service is all about, you made our day extremely comfortable and you're a true professional. A lot of venues can look beautiful, gorgeous, works of art etc etc, however Westmount Country Club not only delivers on venue design, they set the standard, the only thing that exceeds the brilliance of their venue is the service that they provide. You will not find a venue that delivers the 7-star level of service that their staff provide. All of my major events will be held at Westmount from now on, whether its Birthday parties, Anniversaries, Corporate events etc. I consider Bobby and his entire staff as family, they were there from the very beginning till the last dance, at every step of the process to ensure that our special day was exceptional. They were not only there to witness our special day but made the day even more special. Thank you Bobby, Mr. Mark and the entire Westmount family. From my family to yours!
PS: Bobby, anytime you want to have that cigar or go out golfing let me know!!!
In September’11 we met our banquet manager & he was very nice. On an estimate sheet he wrote $145pp + 20% gratuity + 7% tax, punched it on his calculator, said $173pp & circled the final price. On the contract he wrote $145pp + 20% gratuity + 7% tax. The price was right, so we booked! We could not wait for our October’13 wedding!
Two months before my wedding I had to finalize, just lost my aunt the week before & going there to put finishing touches on the best day of my life was difficult. As I sat going over details, he said $186pp. He said he made a mistake on the estimate sheet & $145pp + 20% gratuity + 7% tax written on the contract comes to $186pp. Some may say this is our fault b/c we didn’t do the math too; but we booked on the total he said more than once & circled. While I felt he should have honored the price he told us I was not about to argue 2 months before my wedding while mourning my aunt. He was apologetic, threw in something extra, made vendors cheaper & said we would go home our wedding night w/food. So, we overlooked his error.
The day arrived! When we got to WMCC he showed us our room & it looked gorgeous. My guests loved the ambiance & the food was impeccable. While most of the staff was nice, some were rude. When meeting our maitre d’ she seemed helpful trying to get us settled in & bring us food/drinks. Then she had a puss on her face the rest of the night & was rushing us through everything. As I was talking to a guest, she meanly said she needed my husband & I so she can start the cake when there was well over an hour left to my wedding. The lady serving the cake, instead of taking out the non-edible pins, kept trying to wipe them off which was only pushing them in. My uncle got three in his mouth & almost choked. My mother said stop serving it & the woman was nasty to her. When it was time to throw my bouquet, I asked my maitre d’ for it & she didn’t have it. She meanly told me to throw one of my bridesmaids. I told her they are heavy w/crystals & someone could get hurt. She got it, & slowly strolled back w/an attitude. Also, a waitress told one of my guests she didn’t bring her a drink b/c she wasn’t tipped, one dropped cake on the floor & left it there for people to step in until my dad said something, and some waiters told guests they were not allowed to wrap up food b/c it’s “not WMCC’s policy.”
At the end of the night our banquet manager gave us our food & we gave our tip. We’re very generous tippers, but after paying the 20% gratuity ($4,350), an extra $1,950 b/c of his price error, & having rude staff, the $500 tip we gave, $3pp, what venues such as Russo’s & El’ Caribe suggest, $500 was being nice. When we got home & the food we thought would be a mix of things was pastries & our top layer of cake smashed w/pins in it, we knew we were more than nice.
All in all, the good outweighed the bad simply b/c the place was beautiful, food was delicious; I married my best friend, & spent time with family & friends. We chose WMCC b/c we wanted something different & where our families hadn’t been. Unfortunately, being different wasn’t as worth it in the end. We are not, not recommending WMCC, we just recommend that you double check everything & learn from our mistakes.

*I would like to add that upon hearing about this review, our banquet manager called my husband & I to apologize, & rectified the situation. I thank him for his professionalism and sincerity.
We had our wedding reception at Westmount Country club at their Continental Room. I couldn't be happy enough for choosing this place. The cocktail area is nice and cozy with the white leather couches and a piano in the middle of the room. The dining room is very modern and romantic with the nice chandeliers.
My guests especially loved the food and the ambiance of the venue. Our sales manager Fred took good care of us during the whole process of wedding planning and especially on our big day!
Amazing service and the place was BEAUTIFUL. Your guests will love it.
I would absolutely recommend The Westmount for your big day. I have been to other wedding venues since my wedding and it did not even come close to this venue. The food is outstanding, atmosphere is great, and staff is extremely friendly!
My husband and I, as well as our guests, had an amazing time at our wedding. Bobby was very helpful from day 1. He continued to be available for any of our questions and concerns. The planning process was a breeze. The Westmount Country Club is a beautiful venue, inside and outside. The food and drinks were all delicious (well, what I was able to eat that day). Service is impeccable. Fred was awesome to work with the day of our wedding. As we're Kathy and Annette during the planning process. I would redo my wedding here in heart beat!! Thank you to everyone at the Westmount!!
I got married June29th, 2013 and every time I speak someone who attended the wedding, they rave about how amazing everything was! I couldn't of pictured a more perfect day! Bobby and his team, especially Mike were extremely accommodating, even with my guests who were in wheelchairs. They went above and beyond for every aspect of our day. Mike even had my pants washed that I was supposed to wear the morning after, since someone in the limo spilled soda on them. I highly recommend WMCC. Service, food, and everyone involved are top notch! Doesn't get any better than this place! Thank you bobby and mike!
Words won't be able to describe our experience with the Westmount Country Club they over exceeded our expectations! Stephanie whom we met from the start was AMAZING, I can't say how she catered to us like we were the only people she was dealing with! This venue is top notch by far incredible the entire staff!! Our guests are still raving about what a wedding we had the food is OUTSTANDING! I also used Atlas for my flowers and top notch I must say!!! We can't thank all of you over at the venue!! Our day was PERFECT! You want to talk about a dream come true that is what I experienced with the Westmount Country Club. My husband & I already said in 10 years we will renew our vows and it will be at the same place!!!
Thank you Stephanie & everyone at the venue!!! We love you guys!!!!
The Westmount is the most perfect place to get married! No reason to look anywhere else!
My husband and I had such an amazing experience at the Westmount! The staff was fantastic and very professional. Our maitre d' was phenomenal! Our guests cannot stop talking about the food. Considering we had about 270 people, the grand ballroom was big enough that we didn't feel squished yet intimate enough that you didn't feel lost in a crowd. Overall we were beyond happy with the venue and the service that was provided.
We worked with Bobby at Westmount Country Club and I can't even begin to describe how amazing the entire experience was for my husband and I. We truly loved the venue especially the quality of food and service. Our guests were super impressed and everyone had a great time. Our wedding was held at their Grand Ballroom which was very large but given that we had 300+ people at the wedding, it did not seem crowded at all. Having three bars at the venue also helped in eliminating wait time for guests in which they all appreciated. Highly highly recommend Westmount!
From when we looked at Westmount to the day after our wedding - Westmount and their staff exceeded expectations! Fred was the best. He took care of us from start to finish. The food was over the top and delicious! All of our friends and family have been raving to us about the Westmount.
These are the words spoken by not only us, the bride and groom, but each wedding guest, even 4 months later. Bobby and the staff put on a perfect show. The food, the venue and the staff made our day perfect. I cannot think of a better word for our experience and when I think back to our special day than "perfect" and the Westmount made sure it was. I wish we could turn back time, just to experience it again (as bride and groom)!
