We were married in September 2017 at the Windrift, and thanks to their staff, we had a more beautiful wedding ceremony and reception than we could have possibly imagined.
We booked about 18 months in advance, and from the moment we toured the...
venue, Rachel became our guide through the entire process, and managed the details for our beach ceremony and reception. She was proactive, responsive, engaged and universally amazing from day one. She went above and beyond the call of duty on multiple occasions, handled any last minute problems with ease, and helped to make the process of planning our wedding fun!
Rhonda was responsible for the details for our reception on the day of, and she attended to every single detail - including sending servers with food and cocktails from our cocktail hour out to the beach while we took photos. She made helpful suggestions during the process of working out the final details, and made sure everything ran smoothly on the day of.
Nick from the hotel made sure our guests (and us) were comfortable and even helped us work out a few last minute lodging issues (including one fairly major one) quickly and without question.
As for the day of our wedding, Rachel, Rhonda and the entire staff made it almost completely stress-free for us. They made sure that we had an unforgettable night, and that our guests did too.
Our beach ceremony was beautiful, and the Windrift is set up perfectly for beach weddings - and they know how to manage every possible variable with ease (including in case of adverse weather - which, luckily, we did not have to contend with).
The food was simply incredible - from the cocktail hour to dinner, the drinks were fantastic and easy to obtain, and the servers and bartenders were attentive, friendly and wonderful.
And, for your guests, the hotel is just a fantastic place to stay. The rooms range from standard hotel rooms to 3 bedroom condos overlooking the beach, and all are modern, well furnished and comfortable. The restaurants have great food and service, and it's easy to get a drink or a cup of coffee anytime. It's steps to the beach, or your guests can enjoy the beautiful pool!
Coordination of our vendors with the venue was easy and seamless - other than connecting them, we had not a worry.
We toured a number of wedding venues in at the Jersey Shore, but as soon as we saw the Windrift, and met Rachel, we knew we had found the right place. The venue is beautiful, the service impeccable, and if you choose to have your wedding here, you will be as happy to have made that choice as we are. We cannot recommend the Windrift more highly.
