With over 18 miles of beautiful beaches, Long Beach Island is a beautiful place for a wedding! The Island is also the home of the Barnegat Lighthouse “Old Barney”, which is a very popular attraction and we think it would make a fun spot for some wedding photos! In our experience, Long Beach Island is also a popular vacation or weekend getaway wedding destination for visitors from New York City, and the Philadelphia area. Let us help you explore the Long Beach Island area, to see if it might make the perfect place to say “I do!” to your sweetheart!

The Gables

The Gables is a beautifully restored Victorian New Jersey inn that provides a truly gorgeous setting for a wedding! You’ll be spoiled for choice at The Gables! In summer and fall, you could go with the flower-filled garden courtyard, with a fabulous vine-covered pergola, or; in winter, a crackling fireside ceremony in the large parlor! The Gables has a stunning dining room and a sweeping staircase to add a few magic touches, and the entire inn can accommodate over 100 for a sit-down reception!  And, when it comes to dinner, Executive Chef, Richard Diemer and his culinary team can be relied upon to create a truly exquisite meal! As a final note, your most cherished guests will appreciate their on-site – and perfectly appointed – bed and breakfast accommodations.

The Sea Shell Resort & Beach Club

The Sea Shell Resort & Beach Club is one of the premier wedding & event venues on Long Beach Island. Couples are in fact encouraged to say their vows with their toes in the sand of their private beach! Then you can move into hosting an outdoor cocktail hour poolside & enjoy the ambiance their awesome tiki hut provides. Moving onto the reception, The Sea Shell can host up to 217 guests in their beautiful reception space. Then, at the end of the night we know your guests will appreciate the 53 Caribbean Island-inspired guest rooms and suites! Getting married at the Sea Shell Resort will make you feel like you’ve left New Jersey and landed in your very own tropical paradise!
