We had our wedding at the Yacht Club of Stone Harbor which was the best and easiest decision we made in the planning process. After meeting Patty (event planner) for the first time, we knew then that the Yacht Club is where we HAD to celebrate our Big Day!! Patty made... Read More planning easy and fun. She was so organized and so quick to respond to any little question. Patty is truly the best. Overall, we can not say enough about the staff of the Club. When it comes service, they are outstanding and made our day perfect in every way. The bar is excellent and not one person had to wait for a drink. The environment is something words can't describe with windows over looking the bay at sunset. If you are looking for the perfect shore venue for all seasons the Yacht Club of Stone Harbor is the place to look.

Our wedding was held at the gorgeous Yacht Club of Stone Harbor on 9/28/13. We could not have asked for a more perfect day.

Whenever I had a question, she was able to answer it, even if it was the silliest. She and her staff were great to work with and so accommodating and nice. The Yacht Club of Stone Harbor was the perfect place for our shore wedding! If you are looking for delicious food, with amazing views and a great staff, this is the place for you!

I was married at the Yacht Club of Stone Harbor this past Saturday (10/12/13) and we were all over the moon about how wonderful the venue, event planning and staff were at the Yacht Club. We planned to have an outdoor ceremony but it poured rain that day and we had the ceremony... Read More inside. The transition was absolutely seamless and it ended up being for the best; the ceremony was intimate and cozy, and the transition from the ceremony to reception was flawless. They even opened the bar before the ceremony for guests to get drinks, which everyone loved!! The reception was absolutely amazing and everyone commented on how wonderful the food was, not to mention how much they adored the space. The rehearsal was also smooth and quick, and everyone was a consummate professional. We couldn't have asked for anything more or a better place to begin our life together. Thank you especially to Patrice Davis who helped us plan and execute the event, recommending amazing vendors on top of it all!! Definitely have your wedding here if you have the chance!!

If you're looking for an amazing wedding venue down the shore, look no further! The Yacht Club of Stone Harbor is by far the best of the shore. This was the best and easiest decision we made throughout our wedding planning process!! From the food and service, to the large bar... Read More and dance floor, it truly makes for an ideal setting for a beach wedding. The views of the bay are outstanding as well as the upper deck for the bridal party before the reception. At our first appointment to see the club, we met with Patty & Jackie and they are the BEST planners. They made the planning process so easy. They were such great listeners, gave excellent recommendations for vendors, answered all of our questions and were always quick to respond. Jackie has such attention to detail and truly made our vision exactly what we pictured on our wedding day. We received multiple compliments from guests about the delicious food and how beautiful the venue was. This is a special place that I can guarantee you will be so grateful that you chose as your wedding venue! Thank you so much (especially Jackie, Pete, Patty) for making our day so perfect!!

My husband and I were engaged in Avalon in August of 2014 on a family vacation. During that week, we decided to go down and look at the Yacht Club of Stone Harbor. He and I had grown up vacationing in 7 Mile Island and thought it would be a great venue if we could make it work... Read More (we currently live in Philadelphia) From our very first meeting at the Yacht Club we knew this was the place, the staff was very welcoming and prompt to respond to any questions we had. The entire journey with the Yacht Club was exactly what any bride would ask for. Patty and Jackie are on top of every detail! They would reach out every few months to check on the progress of planning and always made sure we knew when an upcoming appointment or due date (deposit, seating chart, headcount, etc.) was approaching. During our details meeting, Jackie asked questions I hadn’t even thought of related to the day of the wedding. As our wedding day approached I had concerns about the weather and a few of the vendors reliability but the one thing I never had to worry about was the venue. On our wedding day, Jackie and Patty did an amazing job of coordinating our ceremony and reception. Our evening flowed effortlessly thanks to their help. We received countless compliments from our guests as well. The venue is absolutely beautiful with breathtaking views of the bay. We barely had to worry about decorations or up lighting because the Yacht Club is already decorated beautifully. A few simple centerpieces were all it took to give the venue a few personal touches. We were also lucky enough to have one of the most beautiful sunsets I have ever seen at the shore, which further emphasized our appeal of the Yacht Club. In addition, the food was phenomenal! Chef Blaze did an incredible job. We had a hard time deciding which dishes to select during our tasting because everything we tried was incredible. We ultimately decided on the prime rib and chicken stuffed with crab meat. In addition, the Yacht Club was also more than willing to work with us and allowed us to move one of our appetizer options to a late night snack. Our guests were delightfully surprised by delicious pizzas passed around by the staff towards the end of the night. All night our guests came up to us to tell us how delicious the food was and we continue to receive compliments about the food and the venue. Our wedding day was truly the best day or our lives and was better than anything we ever could have dreamed of. This is largely due to the staff at the Yacht Club of Stone Harbor. I cannot thank them enough for their efforts and I recommend this place to any bride looking for a shore wedding. 5 Stars is not enough for this venue!

The food was perfect. To top it off, the chef spent time with us, getting to know us. He spent time talking to us and providing his recommendations, but by no means overbearing. He listened to us and provided recommendations based on what we wanted. But it wasn’t just food we... Read More discussed. We also spent time talking about our mutual passion for Flyers hockey! He, and the rest of the staff at the YCSH, made us feel as if we’d known them forever. It was by far the most relaxed and stress free tasting. We were never rushed, and left with a lot of doggy bags! There is no doubt, in our mind the YCSH, went above and beyond any and all expectations; way beyond that of normal wedding venue. We know we are not a one-time event, but they really made us feel like we were the most important wedding they have ever had. We are confident the YCSH would, with a doubt, do the same, if not more for all of their weddings. When the big day came, the Yacht Club of Stone Harbor, was with us every step of the way; from the beginning of the ceremony to the end of the reception. And even the next day, because let’s be honest, everyone loses something at their wedding! We were not the easiest wedding. We had 14 in our wedding party, 3 dogs, and a first time Officiant. But they had everything planned out, in advance, and the ceremony went flawless. From the day we started talking, to the end of the reception, the Yacht Club of Stone Harbor, went out of their way to ensure we felt as if we were the most important event. With that being said, we were still in for a surprise or two. For our introduction, we both were wearing customizable Flyers sweaters (jerseys) that we wanted our guests to sign. Prior to the introduction, we were invited over to the dining room to meet a surprise visitor. When we walked over, we were introduced to Sam Morin, and up and coming Flyers defenseman. He took photos with us and was the first person to sign our sweaters. After our introduction and dance, we were presented with a real stick from a Flyers player, signed by our favorite Flyers and wishing us a happy wedding! We wanted to share that the surprises because we want to demonstrate the treatment you will receive. While it may not be meeting an athlete, we know they will make your wedding the most memorable and personable wedding, you or your guests, have ever experienced. The Yacht Club of Stone Harbor is, hands down, the best venue to hold your special day. We could go on and on about our sincere gratitude and thanks for the Yacht Club of Stone Harbor, but it would take a few more paragraphs. While each experience is unique, we know they will treat your guests, family, and most importantly, you and your fiancé, as VIP’s. We have heard from our guests, and the common themes were, the food was the best we’ve ever had, and the most fun they have ever experienced at a wedding. The bottom line, the Yacht Club of Stone Harbor truly cares about you and your event. We know that you will be more than satisfied with the YCSH, and will remember your wedding as the best day ever. Thank you Jackie, Patrice, and Peter, for all that you did. Thank you to the staff at the YCSH, who made us and our guests feel welcome and ensured we had the best day ever. We will never forget how you threw us a lifesaver when the other venue tried to scuttle our wedding (had to have one nautical reference!). Forever thankful and happy, Lauren and Dan

You couldn't ask for a better wedding venue than YCSH.

My new husband and I just had the pleasure of having our wedding at the club and we are completely blown away.... Read More I have grown up vacationing in Stone Harbor my whole life and always knew I wanted to get married in this wonderful town. After our first visit and meeting Patty, we knew that this was the spot for us. The beautiful open dance floor, gorgeous bar, and light filled dining room were just what we were looking for in a venue. Through-out our year and plus engagement we got to visit the club often and have dinner, and in doing so we got to meet and get to know most of the wonderful staff. Everyone is so friendly and they all welcomed us every time like family. As the months got closer, Patty was on top of every email and detail. Answering all of my questions and responding to me so quickly. Everything ran so smoothly and we were so excited for the big day. As I dropped off everything for the reception the day before the wedding, Patty and Jackie were there to meet me and even staff walking past helped us bring in all of my boxes. They were so calming as I showed them and went through every detail. I had some ideas but told them they could set up as they saw fit. Well, Cocktail hour came and I was BLOWN AWAY!!! Everything was so wonderfully set up and gorgeous. Jackie and Patty had thought of things I would have never thought of and everything looked so beautiful. Our guests could not stop complementing the set up and flawless transitions of the reception. Jackie was always one step ahead of everything and I did not have to think or worry about a single thing during our party. The food was amazingly delicious and every single guest has complimented one thing or another. Filets were cooked to perfection and the cocktail hour cheese steak spring rolls and cozy shrimp were huge hits! Mike and Pete are the best bartenders around, and everyone said they did not have to wait for a single drink and were treated so well.
