CELEBRATIONS & EVENTS
Searching for a special destination that will meet your specifications and spark excitement for your next
party or corporate event? You need a destination that is affordable and exciting for you and your guests.
Monmouth County is easily accessible from the New York and Philadelphia metropolitan areas and offers
outstanding facilities, professional services and accommodations for every taste and budget, along with
an exciting array of activities for everyone to enjoy.
Is there a wedding
or formal celebration
on your horizon?
Whether you envision an elegant formal reception for 1,000 guests or an intimate
ceremony on the beach with a bonfire and s’mores under the stars, Monmouth
County offers exemplary venues and dedicated professionals to create the affair of
your dreams. Look to Red Bank’s traditional Molly Pitcher Inn and contemporary
Oyster Point Hotel for attentive service, excellent catering and stunning views
of the picturesque Navesink River. Elegant indoor and outdoor spaces host
receptions and events at the Sheraton Eatontown and the Hotels Unlimited family
of hotels. Their friendly and knowledgeable staff will happily arrange all the details
for an oceanfront wedding ceremony as well. The professional staff members
at the DoubleTree Inn of Eatontown go to great lengths to ensure every element
is nothing short of perfect. Avenue, on the beach in Long Branch, is the ideal
destination for events ranging from intimate to extravagant. Avenue’s rooftop deck,
with striking sunsets and sweeping views of the Atlantic Ocean, has ample space
for mingling, mixing and dancing, and if you like sand under your feet, Avenue
can even orchestrate a private barbecue on the beach. Many restaurants and
waterfront nightspots have party facilities that are extremely popular for the low-key
elegance of a second wedding celebration.
No matter where you choose to hold your ceremony and reception, Monmouth
County offers a number of spectacular sites to create unforgettable wedding
pictures. The Historic Village at Allaire State Park offers a chapel and a wide
range of scenic spots perfect for special photographs. Permits are required:
contact Allaire Village at www.allairevillage.org or 732-919-3500. The arboretum
at Holmdel Park and Deep Cut Gardens are just some of the beautiful county parks
available for ceremonies or wedding photos. Prior arrangement is required, so
contact the Monmouth County Park System at 732-842-4000 ext. 1 for fees
and additional information.
