It has always been a dream of mine to get married at the Breakers. Since I was young I would go to the beach across from the Breakers and watch all of the brides, they always seemed to have the best time. The day after we got engaged my husband and I booked the Breakers.... Read More Everyone was so incredibly wonderful to us and we could not be more excited to have our reception there. After we booked we had celebratory drinks on the porch over looking the ocean and we knew it was the perfect choice. Throughout the year Terri, Anthony and Joseph made sure we received everything we could ever dream of. The wedding day came and it was our dream come true! Everything was perfect. The food was insanely amazing, the wait staff was wonderful and so helpful and the Maitre D was simply the best! We had a Hoffmans truck come and the Maitre D made sure that my husband and I got ice cream even though we were unable to go out to the truck. We had a five piece band and 200 guests and we all fit perfectly and never had space issues. We were able to have cocktail hour on the porch overlooking the ocean, andmy husband and I took some night shots on the boardwalk. After the wedding we stayed in the honeymoon suite upstairs and that was also a dream. It was enormous and warm, and from our window we could see the ocean plus it had a big jacuzzi tub. It was the perfect spot for a romantic evening after our wedding. Since the wedding we have been back to the Breakers on numerous occasions for dinner, because the food is simply the best. My sisters and friends of mine have gotten married at a few different venues, and I have to say this was the most helpful and loving staff as well as the best location, food and everything all for the best price! Everyone still talks about our wedding, that it was the best they have ever been to. I cannot recommend the Breakers enough. It was simply put, a dream.

I'll start this review by saying...Breakers on the Ocean surpassed our expectations! Our wedding day went without any issues and they did an amazing job with our decor. It's in a phenomenal location, ran by superb staff and the food is absolutely delicious. If you are looking... Read More for a venue that will look stunning and treat you like you're all that matters then don't hesitate on booking with Breakers. Eileen was amazing and we absolutely adored her. She made us feel at ease with all the chaotic wedding planning and was always there to take our calls/emails. She connects with the bride, groom and their families. By the end of our wedding night, we felt as if Eileen was a part of our family. Our maitre d' was Donna and she was wonderful. She made sure our wedding day/night went without any issues and she did an amazing job at it. We also had our own personal server, Sandra. She was just as great as all the other staff members. During cocktail hour, she brought my wife and I a dish of each item being served at our cocktail hour to a private room where we and our bridal party were. She then asked the bridal party to join our cocktail hour so that we could have our first "meal" as husband and wife, alone. From that moment on, she took care of our drink/food needs the remainder of the night. Anytime our drinks were getting close to empty, she had a fresh one waiting for us at our table or hand delivered one to us on the dance floor. I never saw her, but she clearly was always watching after us. To put into perspective how this staff makes everything about you, my wife made a request that we do not want to be bothered during our dinner so that we could enjoy our meal. Sandra and Donna took the request to heart and made sure that no one would approach us and try talking/taking pictures etc while we were eating our dinner. One of our good friends came over to talk to us while we were eating and Sandra walked over and said, "hello, how's your dinner?" She politely talked our friend away from our sweet heart table. That is the type of service you will get at Breakers. We can't stress it enough, the staff is PHENOMENAL! The venue is BEAUTIFUL! The food is OUTSTANDING! If you're having second thoughts on Breakers, I assure you they will meet your needs, expectations and treat you like family. We had our ceremony and reception there. We wouldn't change a thing, everything went so perfectly. There is also a beautiful park, Divine Park, a couple blocks away to have pictures taken. I'll say it again, this venue is in a beautiful location. We loved the Breakers and we absolutely loved Eileen, Donna, Sandra, the bartenders, and all of the servers and other staff members that made our wedding night so special. We will be back to visit!

Eileen, Michelle and all the other staff at the Breakers went so far beyond our expectations with the planning and execution of our wedding Saturday afternoon that we were nearly speechless. There wasn't a detail ignored an we were pampered like royalty. We had a smaller wedding... Read More and were on a budget so I expected a glitch or disappointment but there were none. Everything was perfect. The cocktail hour was great and the food was cooked and served to perfection. The server that took care of my wife and I was so on top of her game I never put an empty drink on a table, she was there with a replacement before the last sip every time. I was amazed by this as she was always busy but was able to keep a constant eye on us. I never in my wildest dreams imagined we would be treated as well as we did at The Breakers. Our room was perfect the pool and the view were amazing. The atmosphere was relaxed and even though it was brutally hot no one missed a beat. Eileen recommended a bunch of vendors who we contacted and were given the same level of service from them as well. All of Eileen's and Michelle's recommendations and directions were those of experienced professionals who truly loved what they do. In the extreme heat we endured everyone there made sure we were hydrated and well fed. They noticed us sweating and getting flush during pictures and made sure we took a water break and cooled off without rushing us through any steps of the process. We had our 5 year old son with us and I can't imagine any more they could have done to make him feel as important as us, I never expected them to be so sweet to him. He actually asked if we could go back to visit them soon. If you are thinking about having a wedding here do it you won't regret it.

Everyone, even my wife and got to taste some of the dishes, raved about the food. We finished up our pictures on the beach and got a shot of us in front of The Breakers with everyone on the porch raising their glasses, so cool! Dona then directed everyone into the Ballroom for entrances. The Ballroom was beautiful and so clean. We had dinner then danced the night away. The entire staff at The Breakers, from waiters, housekeeping, front desk, management etc...were incredible and went above and beyond expectations. They are really a team. Whatever we needed was done. We were lucky to have about 32 rooms booked that night so we had an after party in the piano bar and even scheduled a breakfast in the Seashell room the following day.

Their quick response time and very accommodating nature continued throughout the entire planning phase of our wedding. I met with her several times/exchanged numerous emails and phone calls over the course of 3 months and she was always so kind and helpful. I think one of Shannon's best attributes is her ability to anticipate what you are looking for, even before you know it. My partner and I had no idea of certain wedding etiquette and she was always there guiding us and letting us know what should/shouldn't be done. When Shannon was not available, her colleagues Eileen or Terri were always there to help me out, and I think it is the excellent teamwork among the staff that definitely shines through and is a quality unique to "The Breakers". During our wedding day, Michele was our Maitre D, and she was so organized and thoughful that I didn't have anything to worry about at all. I had several lists and she executed them to perfection. She kept the flow of things so well, that my guests were telling me how they have never seen food coming out so quickly during the cocktail hour and our reception (which was done buffet style). The servers were also very kind and attentive. In addition, I want to commend our bartenders, who kept the drinks coming and made it so that my guests never had to wait long for their drinks. I also received comments from my guests about how good the quality of the liquor was. Lastly, the food at "The Breakers" is some of the best I've had (not just for a wedding but among restaurants too, and we have traveled all over the world). Overall, they far exceeded my expectations. Thank you to the staff "The Breakers"! and a big Thank You to Shannon and Michele!
