Why A Breakwaters Wedding Is What You Need

“We had our wedding there in June and everything was amazing. People are still raving about the food, the wedding planners went above and beyond for us and the condos that everyone stayed in were fabulous! We highly recommend hosting your event at the Breakwaters. We wish we could do it all over again!” -Samantha

Looking to get a similar experience for one of the most important days of your life? While there are endless options for where to host your special day, have you ever considered tying the knot by the beach? Beach weddings are some of the most naturally romantic and easy to pull off weddings. Spending your special day on the beautiful beaches of Townsends Inlet, NJ, surrounded by your loved ones, will create memories that will last a lifetime. A wedding at Breakwaters is truly unmatched.

Benefit Of Beach Weddings #1: More Casual And Simplistic Than A Traditional Wedding

Beach Wedding

Beaches have the ability to offer a naturally romantic setting with minimal need for additional decor. What better backdrop is there than the sun gleaming over the blue water as it sets? There is not much that can top that view! The beach provides you with a more laid back, relaxed ambiance to your special day. With the sound of waves crashing and the pure bliss that beaches bring, the stress of the big day will be submerged into the blue ocean almost immediately upon stepping onto the sand.

With trinkets found on the beach such as sand and sea shells, all the decor you could need can be found right at your fingertips. Due to the wide amount of space you have on the beach, there is a lot of room for customization to make the venue truly unique to you. The options are limitless in such an open, beautiful space to make your wedding look just the way you want it.

Benefit Of Beach Weddings #2: Stunning And Unflawed Pictures Of The Day

“Working with the breakwaters was an all included solution. Our goal was to have a fun, easy and not overly expensive wedding that left a lasting impression on our guests. We worked with the wedding planners via phone/email since we lived an hour away and met in person twice, and everything was PERFECT! The custom menu, the beach ceremony, the coordination with our band, everything. They recommended great vendors to work with including a bagpipe player, florist and videographer. The staff was incredible throughout the whole process and the wedding planners allowed us to not worry about details and just enjoy our day! Also they are super well connected in Sea Isle so they were able to pull off fun details like having the fudgy wudgy man make an appearance!”
