We had a wonderful wedding at Laguna. Chris, the event coordinator, was extremely helpful and was always punctual and diligent with responses (whether via email or phone) and during the coordination before and during the wedding day. Food and drinks were amazing. The staff... Read More were friendly, fun, and we're a great time as also confirmed by our guests. Many guests even told us, "it was the best wedding" they had ever been to. Its a great venue if you are looking for a cold drink and your feet in the sand. Very flexible as well. Perfect for our relaxed, party vibe beach wedding.

I can not give Laguna and Christine Bruno enough stars. Despite it being a rainy day, I had the most beautiful wedding. We got married on the bandstand. Christine decorated the venue exactly as I had imagined it in my head, even my husband was amazed at what she did with the... Read More room. The food was amazing!! People can not stop raving to us about how fabulous our wedding was, friends asks us to get married again so we can do it all over again! Everyone love the fact that you get married on the beach, take two steps to the venue and then can walk right to hotel, its incredibly convenient for your guests. While I can't stop raving about how fabulous my wedding was, the best part was that for a New Jersey Beach front wedding, it as extremely affordable!! Like I said, I just can't give the venue, Christine, and the staff enough stars!!!

I am not sure where to begin! I have been to many weddings where the reception was held at a country club or an inside venue.

All throughout the event, I heard repeatedly “this was the best wedding that we’ve ever been to”, “this is the most relaxed and fun wedding ever” and “I have never had a meal this delicious at a wedding before”.

Christine of Laguna made this place special. From the first meeting to the ceremony and reception she was cordial and friendly. Very accommodating, very patient woman. The staff that assisted Christine were also smiling and enjoying their evening of making our evening... Read More special. Our wedding was to be on the beach but unfortunately weather kept us inside. I planned ahead just in case and glad I did. I had my own tropical plants to bring in and Christine was so very happy to help us in any way to make this work for the families. While it was inside, the beach is right out the door and with the windows all around and we felt like we were right there. This venue was very intimate and the food was tremendous. Could not have asked for a better day (well, the sun could have helped) but my daughters wedding was full of sunshine on their faces. Thank you again Christine and staff for superb time.

I recently had the pleasure of getting married and using Laguna Grill for the reception. Not only was the wedding an absolute dream, everything at Laguna was perfect. The ceremony took place right on the Brigantine beach, then it was a few steps back to Laguna for the reception.... Read More The location was beautiful; outside on their beachfront deck. There were palm trees and chairs in the sand. There was also an awning that provided shaded areas for guests who wished to stay out of the sun. There were staging areas for either a band or DJ, and plenty of room to dance. The food was excellent! All of the appetizers and entrees were fresh and delicious. I was so impressed by the quality and tastiness of the food, my only regret is that the busy bride didn't have time to eat more! The most important feature of Laguna was the people; the service was spectacular! Christine Bruno is the wedding coordinator for Laguna and she was such a pleasure to work with from the very start. She laid to rest all my concerns and made sure everything that day ran smoothly. The efficiency, dedication, and kindness she showed, from our first conversation to the big day, allowed me to relax and enjoy with no concerns. Everything that I envisioned for that special day came to life with the help and support of the staff at Laguna. From the owner himself, to every last bartender and busboy, everyone contributed to making my wedding day the most spectacular day of my life!
