Clarks Landing did an outstanding job for our wedding on Friday, April 28, 2017. From start to finish, the staff was helpful, friendly, and made us have the most amazing, memorable experience. As I’m sure other brides are, I was nervous about everything going smoothly the day of the wedding, but there was not one issue. The planning process, as well as the day of the wedding was PERFECT. My husband and I could not be happier, and we highly recommend Clarks Landing to the fullest. Thank you so much for helping us achieve the best day of our lives.
Renee & Ryan W. – Wedding April 28, 2017
My husband and I got married at Clarks Landing on March 26,2017. It was the best day of our lives. The first time I walked through those doors and interacted with Nicole, I knew Clarks Landing was the place. Nicole was very patient and was always a phone call or e mail away. The day of the wedding went perfectly. Dom, Nicole and Judy really made our day special. I highly suggest this venue to any newlyweds.

Old Bridge, NJ
From the moment my husband and I walked into Clarks Landing, we knew we had to have our wedding reception here. The pure beauty, elegance and class this place represents is everything a bride wants. We worked with Nicole, Don, and Judy and let’s just talk about how amazing they all are. Nicole is such a sweetheart and she truly became one of my right hands in wedding planning. No matter the time of day or night, she was always prompt in answering my emails. She put all my visions into reality and I truly can’t thank her enough! Don and Judy were my husband and I’s best friends the day of our wedding. They helped us remain stress free and truly helped us enjoy every single second of our day. They took extra special care of my husband and I as well as our parents. They are true clas acts. The food, the views, the decor, the staff, EVERYTHING at this venue is something that will be hard to beat at any other wedding. We can’t thank you all enough for everything. We love you all and we can’t wait to come back as Clarks Alumni!
Megan & Ricky P. – Wedding March 24, 2017
Toms River, NJ
Clarks Landing is simply the best. From the moment we walked in (without an appointment) we fell in love. Kristin was setting up for a wedding and still managed to find time to make us feel welcome. People warned me of how stressful planning a wedding would be, they obviously didn’t get married at Clark’s. Every detail was covered, every quirky request was met with a smile. I can’t stop smiling thinking of the incredible day we had.
Our wedding was in February – Point Pleasant sure is gorgeous in the winter! We had the ceremony on site, so happy we did! Extended cocktail hour 30 minutes so we could take pictures and still enjoy it! This was the perfect wedding for us and we’ve got this amazing place to thank for it!
Margaret & Stephen L. – Wedding February 4, 2017
Staten Island, NY
My one word for my Clarks Landing Yacht Club wedding: PERFECT. Everything from the big picture to the smallest detail seemed to come together effortlessly thanks to Kristin, Don, and Judy.
Clarks Landing was the first venue we looked at and by the time we looked at three more, we knew that we wanted to get married at Clarks Landing. We just felt like Clarks Landing was giving us everything we wanted – beautiful venue, great amenities (bar with good liquor options, cocktail hour with a wine and cheese pairing station – sold).
We were planning our wedding remote from Baltimore. Kristin was so flexible throughout the planning process, which I loved. The night before our wedding I had a few last minute things to drop off and she offered to hang my dress in the bridal suite. She even got it out of the bag and fluffed it the morning of!
The day of the wedding, everyone was amazing. The servers were so professional (all the guests mentioned how great they were). Our personal server, Julie, was so attentive and always there when we needed her! Don ran the entire ceremony like a well rehearsed orchestra and was such a calming presence. Judy was there to help with every small detail. Kristin, our coordinator, even helped me bustle my dress.
The food was amazing and we loved the Bovella’s cake. People are still texting me about how awesome the cocktail hour was!
My wedding was better than even imagined – it was perfect. I can’t imagine having my wedding anywhere else!
Kate & Steve C. – Wedding Saturday January 28, 2017
I really didn’t think there could be a “Too good to be True” until we booked our NYE wedding at Clark’s!! From the moment we walked in, we were family and whatever picture we had in our minds was captured and attained by Nicole, Don, and Judy! Between being about to text Nicole at any hour of the day, to ask her ANYTHING; to Don and Judy hanging out with us like friends on the night of our wedding! I truly don’t think our wedding will ever too anyone else’s – the food, the atmosphere, the entertainment, the beautiful decor, and the staff! If there is a day I can do over and over again-it is our wedding day….all because of our Clark’s Landing family!!! We love you all more than you will ever know! We cannot wait for all the alumni events to just experience our night all over again!!! If I could relive one day over and over again it would be our wedding, because of Clark’s Landing! Between the food, the service, the atmosphere; people have been calling for days telling us it was the BEST WEDDING they have ever been to. My husband and I knew from the moment we talked on the phone with Nicole that CL was the place for us, we went the next day and FELL IN LOVE! If you want a place where you are treated like family (from the moment you walk in), go to Clark’s! It truly was our dream come true.
Chelsea & Mike S. – Wedding December 31, 2016
There really aren’t words to describe how fantastic everything was at Clarks from start to finish. From the day we visited I knew it was where I wanted to get married. After booking, it only got better! Kristin, Don, and Judy were wonderful. The staff was beyond kind. The food was incredible. My parents told me for weeks afterwards that people were still telling them how our wedding was the best one they had ever been to! I only wish the day had gone slower so we could have enjoyed it longer! Nothing to say but the best about everyone and everything at Clark’s.
Andrea & Matthew T. – Wedding December 11, 2016
We had our wedding here on Nov. 26, 2016. Amazing doesn’t even begin to cover it. From when we first booked all the way to picking up our belongings the morning after the wedding-this place went above and beyond to help us have the perfect day! Kristin, Don, Jody and the entire staff are amazing. When we arrived, our attendant Kelly was immediately in the bridal suite greeting our large bridal party and putting out some platters to get food in everyone’s stomach before the ceremony. After the ceremony-guests went into the cocktail hour. Our guests are still raving about how amazing the food and atmosphere was in the downstairs room. Dinner was equally as delicious and the service continued to be top-notch. The entire staff made sure us and our guests had an amazing night. At the end of the night, one of our shuttles broke down and Clark’s handled everything with the company to make sure everyone got home safely. It was honestly the best night of our lives and everyone is still telling us how amazing the venue, food and service was that night!
Amanda & Alex T. – Wedding November 26, 2016
I wish I could accurately describe just how amazing Clark’s was to me, my fiancé (now wife!), and every one that attended our wedding. It has been almost 3 months since the day and I’m still getting calls from people having random moments where they remember the time they had and needing to inform me just how great it was. Even though it’s true what they say, “the day flies by in a blink,” I could not imagine it flying by in any other place but Clark’s Landing Yacht Club. When it comes to what made the day so spectacular it comes down a number of factors. Obviously, for our guest, the feelings on the day were due to the absolutely magnificent décor, the incredible INCREDIBLE food, as well as the level of service they received from the minute they got there until the minute they left. For us, it was all those things, but there was a little extra part we got to experience that no one else did, and that was getting to plan everything with the assistance of their unbelievable staff. Nicole, Don, Judy, Kristin, and literally everyone else over there made the whole experience from planning to the actual day something we will never forget. We have both heard plenty of stories from other people about how crazy and stressful the planning process was, reaching the point where some of them even considered eloping to stop dealing with annoyance. It was quite the opposite for my wife and I; Nicole was the who we spoke with the most, was there every single step of the way, to calm our nerves when things felt the might be getting out of control, to solve the problems on the fly (you’ll have some of those, trust me), and even to be the witness to the signing of our Marriage License (HOW COOL IS THAT?). I could go on and on and ON about Clark’s, honestly, we both wish we could have the day all over again with absolutely no difference. It was the greatest day in our lives, and that was primarily made possible by Clark’s.
Emma & Connor S. – Wedding Friday November 18, 2016
New York, NY
My husband and I had our wedding at Clarks Landing on 11/13/16. Throughout the planning process it took us a long time to pick a venue. We almost went with a different venue and then we had a bad experience with the way the staff were handling the entire thing so we decided to back out before signing a contract. We were discouraged and I was beginning to think I would never find the perfect waterfront/beach venue. Then we went to Clarks Landing. We fell in love with the venue immediately and, to top it off, the staff was incredible. From the second we signed our contract up until the actual wedding day Kristin was there to answer every single email very quickly. Her and Don made the planning process so simple. On our actual wedding day Judy did an incredible job at organizing all of my decorations and making everything look perfect. Our personal waitress was unbelievably attentive and made sure we didn’t have to go to the bar once. She even wrapped up leftovers and anything else we requested as well as slices of cake, a mini champagne bottle and two plastic glasses for when we got back to the hotel. The amount of detail that the staff put into making your day the most perfect day is indescribable. My friends and family are still talking about how wonderful and unforgettable our wedding was and wishing we could do it all over again. I am SO happy we ended up working with Clarks. Our wedding day was the best day ever and I didn’t have a single complaint. We will definitely be back to visit at alumni events and hopefully maybe we will be guests at a future wedding at Clarks!
Hannah & Chris M. – Sunday November 13, 2016
South Plainfield, NJ
Two days later & all we keep doing is thinking about our wedding at Clarks. It was honestly the best day ever not just cause it was our wedding but because Clarks made it that way. Don, Judy, Kristin, and the whole staff are absolutely amazing! Food, decor, service, drinks, atmosphere,etc… were top notch. All of our guests told us how impressed they were with this Venue. Clarks Landing has it all. They take care of every little thing for you and it is all worth it. Thank you Clarks for everything! We are so happy to be a part of your family!
Love, Deena & Michael D. – Wedding November 6, 2016
Cedar Grove, NJ
AMAZING. Clarks Landing is a top notch operation. It is like the saying goes, “you get what you pay for.” I could not be any happier with my experience of using Clarks Landing for my wedding reception. From the personal attention of planning the wedding with food and cake tasting to being responsive on emails I had during the planning process, Clarks goes above and beyond. I have heard stories of group food tastings at other venues- not at Clarks. Clarks Landing gives you the personal attention you deserve for your wedding. The wedding was amazing from start to finish. Cocktail hour at Clarks Landing is like no other. I had many guests tell me that was the best cocktail hour they have ever been to. The service at Clarks was wonderful- servers were very attentive to the tables and there was never a line at the bar as the servers brought drinks to the tables in a timely manner. As the bride and groom we were assigned our own servers who brought us cocktail hour food in the bridal suite and waited on us hand and food at our sweetheart table. The food at Clarks Landing is amazing- so many great choices at the cocktail hour and the reception. If there were any hiccups or problems during the wedding reception, I wouldn’t know it as the bride as the General Manager Don was on top of things making sure the wedding went off without a hitch. I had guests of all ages tell me that was the best wedding they have been to in their lives- praising the amazing food and service. I am extremely happy with my experience with Clarks Landing and I would highly recommend it to any couple that wants the wedding of a lifetime.
Jaime & Jeff H. – Wedding October 23, 2016
Clarks Landing is a spectacular venue. The staff were very helpful and accommodating. The food was absolutely amazing and the cocktail hour was to die for. Clarks provide all the extras a bride and groom can possibly need such as a beautiful bridal suite, one on one service, centerpieces, lighting, cake and more. There was no need to add more details because the setting is absolutely stunning. I highly recommend Clarks Landing!!
Carly & Matthew S. – Wedding October 21, 2016
Point Pleasant, NJ
I don’t even know where to begin! My husband and I were married on October 14th, 2016. From the moment we walked in the door, it was love at first sight – Don showed us around and we were in complete awe of him. His love and passion for the industry is unmatched. It was the 8th venue we visited, and we realized quickly that it should have been our first… there is absolutely no comparison out there! The spectacular views, the incredible food, the unbelievable service, the amazing staff – Judy & Kristin, every little detail…just total perfection. Seriously…our guests can’t stop raving about the food! They were so wonderful to work with throughout the entire process. Our wedding day was everything we ever dreamed it would be and we are forever grateful. Thank you to our Clarks family, you are one in a million!
Jenna & Scott K. – Wedding October 14, 2016
Clarks Landing made our wedding day the most beautiful, perfect day of our lives. I’m definitely a Type A bride who needed to book a place that would make me feel comfortable leaving details in their hands. Clarks Landing is that place. We initially met with Kristin who took us on a tour of the venue and explained everything that we would ever need to know. Kristin was wonderfully responsive to ALL of my many many emails. Any questions I had were answered quickly and professionally. A few months prior to our wedding we got do a food tasting for our reception. This is not wedding food. It’s the type of food you get at a 5 star restaurant down to the plating design. A few weeks before the wedding we met with Don to finalize the details for our big day. We were on the fence about whether or not to have the Grand Viennese Display (which we had already booked in our contract). Don gave us his honest opinion about how the viennese display would affect the last hour of our wedding (people clear the dance floor to take advantage of the dessert tables) and offered us the Jersey Shore station which was zeppoles, salt water taffy, pork roll and egg sandwiches,coffee, water for our guests on their way out of the venue. Why is this recommendation important to me? The Viennese display would have cost us a good deal more than the Jersey Shore station which really showed me that Don was looking out for what would make us happy and would make our wedding great. Clarks Landing cares about their couples. They make sure every single detail is perfect. Our guests are still raving about our October 2016 wedding from the food to the decor to the service. I can’t say enough about how great this venue is for a wedding. I’d get married there all over again tomorrow. Worth every penny we spent! My husband and I joke that our kids are getting married there so we can make sure we get to go another wedding at Clarks!
Kara & James M. – Wedding October 9, 2016
Staten Island, NY
My husband and I got married on October 2nd 2016 & with the help of their very professional and attentive staff, I had planned a wedding within 7 months. The moment I stepped into Clark’s Landing I knew it was the one. It was the first venue we saw and after seeing many others there was NO comparison. From the panoramic windows overlooking the water, amazing cocktail hour, champagne as you entered, I don’t have enough room to tell all of the perfect details I would like ! They make you feel like family! Never pushy and always professional. Nicole, Don and Judy were beyond helpful and confident with everything so I knew I didn’t have to worry the day of. Nicole helped me every step of the way prior, and answered all of my emails within minutes. Don also had many great suggestions to help the day run smooth which we appreciated very much. Judy was there for me on the day of & set everything up perfectly. She also took care of me personally to make sure I was happy, fed and freshened up! Don and Judy also wore outfits that fit the theme of the wedding and I thought that was so sweet. I was also impressed with the positive signs in the back rooms of the venue for the staff members. You could tell the staff is well taken care of. Guests from the wedding still compliment me on what an amazing venue I picked, from the food, especially during cocktail hour, bartenders remembering everyone’s order & way the staff served he guests! Every dollar spent was well worth it! I wish I could relive it again. Thanks for making our dreams come true. xoxo
Kellie and Mark R. – Wedding October 2, 2016
It is nearly impossible to describe how wonderful of a venue Clarks Landing Yacht Club is for a wedding reception. Even three months after our wedding, it is difficult to put into words how great not only the venue is but also how wonderful the people are at coordinating a flawless reception. From the moment that we first met with Nicole to tour the venue, we knew this would be the perfect place to have a dream reception. Throughout the whole process Don, Nicole, and Judy could not have been any more welcoming, accommodating, helpful, and available. With weddings every weekend, it could have been very easy for our wedding to be treated just like any other wedding; however, every phone call and e-mail was quickly returned and they made it feel like we were a close friend or relative getting married. Don, Nicole, and Judy helped us plan even the most minuscule details, and listened to every request and thought that came to mind for the year leading up to our wedding. On our wedding day, the rest of the staff could not have been more professional and attentive. We received multiple compliments regarding the servers at the cocktail hour as well as during dinner.
In addition to the unbelievable view, the food at Clarks Landing is incredible. Our guests are still talking about how great the food was, and we cannot wait to be invited to a wedding at Clarks to experience the cocktail hour and dinner again!
Clarks Landing’s “Preferred Vendor List” helped introduce us to all of the vendors that we ended up using for our wedding. Choosing Clarks Landing as well as choosing their preferred vendors helped us easily plan a flawless wedding.
We are forever grateful to Clarks Landing Yacht Club and their wonderful team for making our wedding an unforgettable experience.

If you’re looking for a classy, high end venue with the best most professional customers service, look no further Clarks Landing is the place for you!
Lauren & Matthew M. – Wedding September 10, 2016
Words can not express how great the day was for Danielle and I on 8/28/16! Clarks Landing is simply the best venue in NJ! The food was spectacular! The staff from the very day we first met with them until the day of our wedding and even beyond have been nothing short of amazing! The best compliment comes from each and every guest we had that stated it was simply the BEST wedding they’ve ever been to! Hats off to Clarks and I know that if anyone ever asks me about venues for a wedding I will only recommend Clarks!
Danielle & Kirk L. – Wedding August 28, 2016
There are not enough amazing things to say about this incredible venue. Clark’s Landing was one of the first places that we looked at for our wedding venue and we fell in love immediately. There is not one bad thing to say about this place. First of all, you’re not just investing in an incredible venue. You’re investing in an entire crew of incredible people and basically a built-in wedding planner. Clark’s amazing staff was helpful throughout the entire process, making it effortless to get everything we needed to do, done. They are incredibly accommodating and every single person I encountered (especially Kristin, Judy and Don) felt like they’d been a friend of mine for years. Amazing! Our ceremony was held outside, but the great thing about Clark’s is that they will make a decision the day of your wedding about whether to have it inside or outside. Rain was forecasted the entire week leading up to our wedding, but we were able to have it outside because the weather turned out to be beautiful. And if we’d had it inside, it would have been just as beautiful! The cocktail hour is something people still can’t stop talking about (we were married in August). The food is just phenomenal and Clark’s has everything figured out. Before going out to take photos and mingle with guests, we were served an entire platter of our cocktail hour selections so we didn’t have to worry about missing out on the amazing food. Additionally, Clark’s works with you to create your very own ice sculpture (included in cost) and they can pretty much do anything. There were guests of ours who thought the cocktail hour was the only food we were serving! (Boy, were they in for a surprise.) Our reception was phenomenal. Again, Clark’s has done this time and time again and they’d thought of everything. Your introductions, dances and speeches are all done up front, leaving you the remainder of the night to enjoy yourselves. You have your own personal server the entire night and with Don C. as your first line of defense to make sure everything goes perfectly, you can’t go wrong. Clark’s gave us the night of our lives. We’ll be forever grateful to them for making our wedding so incredible. Thank you!
Caitlin & Matthew M. – Wedding August 26, 2016
To say our August 2016 wedding was incredible at Clarks Landing is a drastic understatement. Our day was one of perfection thanks to our team led by Don and Kristin. From our first visit to Clarks, my husband and I knew we were in great hands and we were proven this time and time again through the wedding planning process. Don and Kristin lead a team of true professionals, there is no detail too small for the Clarks team and every person at our wedding could feel that attention to detail. We have received rave reviews from our friends and family on the entire night, from the cocktail hour raw bar through to end of night dancing- the night was incredible and one we will never forget. The biggest thanks to our team; Don and Kristin are true professionals that lead an amazing team and create a night that feels like a dream!
Susan & Jack R. – Wedding August 20, 2016
Point Pleasant, NJ
My new husband and I had our reception at Clarks last weekend, and it was simply spectacular! Every single detail was top notch -the amazing food, fine dining service with white gloved servers, the fantastic view, and outstanding organization. It absolutely exceeded every expectation I have ever had for our wedding day, and our guests were “wow’d”!
Kristen & Stephen D. – Wedding August 5, 2016
Tinton Falls, NJ
Our wedding took place on July 31st 2016 and it was nothing short of magical. It was an absolute dream come true, and there was not a thing I would want to change. After looking at over 15 venues, we came back to Clarks Landing in Point Pleasant Beach, which also happens to be the same town where we met. From the moment I met Nicole, she did everything in her power to allow us to have our wedding at Clarks. We played around with dates and finally decided on a summer Sunday. Working with Nicole was seamless. She answered all of my questions without making me feel like I was a bother, even when I texted her 4 times in a day! As the day got closer, all I really had to do was finalize the menu and drop off any additional reception items. Everything else was done for me! When we walked into the ballroom of Clarks Landing, we were blown away, no detail was left unnoticed. Every single staff member went above and beyond to make sure the night was flawless. The service you receive at Clarks Landing is unlike anything we have experienced. The waiters, waitresses, bar staff, cooks, and everyone else behind the scenes cater to the needs of all of the guests. In addition to the excellent service, the food here is out of the world. People are still talking about our outstanding cocktail hour, as well as all of the delicious courses and Viennese hour! I hope I can return to Clarks as a guest in the future!! We are so fortunate to have found a venue where the people who work there love what they do. It was like working with family. We have received nothing but the most positive feedback from everyone who attended the wedding. There are not enough words to describe how truly wonderful our day was. I would highly recommend this venue to everyone getting married!!! Would do it all over again in heartbeat because everything was worth it!!!
Pam & Frank S. – Wedding July 31, 2016
South Plainfield, NJ
Got married on 7/30/16. Our wedding was FLAWLESS. Nicole, Don, and Judy helped us at every step of the way and communicated to us clearly what we needed to do. They are true professionals! As we didn’t use a day-of coordinator, it was especially helpful that they were so organized. Food is DELICIOUS (and plentiful), the view is amazing, and the cocktail hour space, dance floor, table arrangements are all gorgeous. Since everything was so beautiful, I didn’t feel the need to DIY decorations (and saved on centerpieces/flowers that way too!). If you’re looking for a fairytale Jersey Shore venue, this is it!
Abigail & Justin S. – Wedding July 30, 2016
Neptune City, NJ
This place is amazing!! They gave me the dream wedding I never thought would be possible. This team truly goes above and beyond for their bride, groom and guests. I only wish I had more time with them!! The food, the ambiance, decor is all fit for kings and queens. And the best part is the view!! Hands down top of the list!! Thank you Don, Judy and Nicole.
Vanessa & Jody B. – Wedding July 29, 2016
Clarks Landing Yacht club is such an amazing venue! If you have the opportunity to work with Nicole take it! She answered all of my emails within hours and was always there to help me with the next step of the planning process! The food was amazing and my family and friends raved about it!! I definitely recommend it! It may seem a bit pricey at first but with all the stuff it comes with, it is well worth it!!! Definitely recommend it!! It was a dream come true <3
Gina & Christopher E. – Wedding July 17, 2016
My wife and I can’t imagine why you would go anywhere else! Clark’s Landing makes hosting the most wonderful day of you life look easy. I work for a catering company, so I understand all the complexities of planning and executing a great wedding. From the consultations and tastings to the food and service, Clark’s is absolutely amazing. From the moment you step on to their establishment you have the feeling of elegance, hospitality and the food is exceptional. The view and luxurious banquet room are enough to make you choose them for your wedding. The staff at Clark’s go above and beyond to make sure you and all of your guests get to enjoy the entire wedding. Our guests were running around during cocktail hour raving about all of the great stations provided. It’s an evening that you will wish never ends. There are so many different options and choices for a wedding, but this was by far the easiest and most rewarding one we made. We can’t thank Nicole, Don, Judy and all of the staff at Clark’s enough for our Wedding June 30th, 2016. It’s a day that we all stress over and remember for the rest of our lives. Choose Clark’s if you want the best!
Katilyn & Bryan F. – Wedding June 30, 2016
Clark’s Landing was the best choice my husband and I ever could have made. Hands down it was the absolute most perfect day we ever could have imagined. The entire process from booking with Kristin to executing the day flawlessly (thank you Don & Judy!) was the picture of organization and attention to detail. There was not one moment during the entire planning process that either myself or my husband felt even the SLIGHEST bit of stress because of the knowledge of the Clarks staff. Honestly, if you are looking for a beachy wedding and go anywhere else in Southern NJ you are just missing out on what could be your perfect day. The only hope we have is to someday be guests at a wedding at Clarks so we can experience it all over again, that is how unbelievably it was. Do yourself a favor and go take a tour, you will be signing your contract and giving a down payment that day just like we did!!
Erin & William V. – Wedding June 10, 2016
Let me TRY and put into words just how amazing the Clarks Landing Family is. Yes I said family because everyone at Clarks Landing is absolutely amazing and they are so welcoming and make you feel just like family. From day one my husband and I knew we were in good hands. Kristin, Don, Judy and everyone else we met were so helpful and there to answer questions whenever we needed them. The day of our wedding the weather was not looking good but I was determined to have the ceremony outside. Don went the extra mile and set up for a ceremony inside and outside so that I would have the option until the very last second. Unfortunately it did rain but I was speechless when I saw the ballroom and how beautiful it looked set up for our ceremony. My husband and I spent so much time looking at several wedding venues and Clarks Landing was the last venue we visited and we quickly realized it should have been the first one we looked at! Their staff is unbeatable, the food is unmatched, the service is amazing and the location is breathtaking. If I had more room to type I could be a spokesperson for Clarks Landing! My advice is short and sweet, if you want that “picture perfect” wedding day without all the stress then Clarks Landing is your venue. My husband and I are still beaming about our night at Clarks Landing and from the bottom of our hearts we thank the Clarks Landing family for everything they did for us that made our night unforgettable!
Jennifer & Marc C. – Wedding June 5, 2016
Toms River, NJ
You would be crazy NOT to have your wedding here. Everything was ABSOLUTELY perfect!!! Clarks Landing was the first venue we visited on our hunt. We looked at other places just to give them a chance and nothing came close. So much so that when we went to other venues and asked if they had certain features they responded with “no.. we’re not Clarks Landing”. Whoops! Needless to say, as if Clarks wasn’t already completely on our minds, that sealed the deal knowing that nothing could compare. They seriously think of everything. Kristin helped us with all of our up front planning and was there the day of to get the ceremony off the ground, then Don swooped in and continue with all of the day of logistics. Kristin actually apologized to me once for not responding to an e-mail within 24 hours on her day off. I cannot get over how completely dedicated they are to making everything so perfect. The cocktail hour is the most insane thing you can imagine (read: chocolate covered bacon is a thing. What?!) Some other little things go a long way: -They don’t allow DJs to bring big speakers. The DJs instead plug in and there are speakers in the ceiling above the dance floor. Incredible. -Each table doesn’t get served until all of the meals are ready, as in servers will come to the table as a big unit and time placing the plates down together. They were incredibly efficient, polite, and neat. -They have incredibly beautiful uplighting that they match to your theme. -The blinds are lowered while guests entered the ballroom. Then when the bride and groom enter (through the beautiful Juliet balcony) the blinds are raised, having a wonderful WOW effect. -The view is spectacular. Especially as the sun is setting. You definitely get what you pay for (as in don’t visit if you don’t have the budget because your heart will be destroyed if you visit and realize it’s not in the budget)…. it’s worth every single penny! Best. Day. Ever!!!!!!!!!!
Kelsi & Nick M. – Wedding May 28, 2016
I had the perfect wedding day because of the staff at Clarks Landing!!! I think it would be hard to find a better wedding venue in New Jersey!!! The space is beautiful, the sunsets are spectacular, the food is ridiculously delicious and the staff works at the highest level of excellence. Nicole helped make the planning process surprisingly close to stress free and every time I had a question about the wedding, she responded just about immediately and always had a positive attitude. Judy was amazing, she took care of too many details to list, but I’m truly grateful for all of her help. Don was also exceptional, before the wedding he gave us great advice and the day of he really did an outstanding job. Before our ceremony, our photographer had us take pictures in the sand and when Don saw my feet covered in sand, he grabbed a towel to help clean my feet! Everyone at Clarks Landing worked so well together and with our vendors that it felt like a seamless day. We knew we would be taken care of on our wedding day, but the fact that you took care of the people we love the most as well just really is beyond phenomenal! The food at Clarks Landing is fantastic!!! The variety and thoughtfulness in preparation and presentation is unbelievable. Everyone left as full as they wanted to be, including our vegan, vegetarian and gluten free guests. Our personal attendant, Julie took care of us all night and had it not been for her bringing us food during the cocktail hour, we would not have had a chance to eat. We’ve received a million compliments on every aspect of our wedding venue and getting married at Clarks Landing was the best decision!!! We had a wonderful experience at a stunning venue staffed by exceptionally hard working people. We feel so happy and grateful, thank you for making our day so amazing!

Clarks Landing made our wedding day the best day of our lives! The venue is gorgeous, the food was fantastic and the staff went above and beyond for us and our guests. We couldn’t have picked a better place to celebrate our wedding day. We had our ceremony indoors due to the weather and I couldn’t have been happier with the way everything turned out-MAGNIFICENT!!!

Clarks Landing Yacht Club and all of their hardworking employees helped us create the wedding of our dreams! Every minute we spent working with Nicole and Don was a pleasure, and they made us feel like we were their top priority throughout the whole process. Every detail was absolutely perfect; I couldn’t provide a negative comment about this venue if I tried! My husband and I, and all of our family and friends were 100% pleased and completely impressed with our wedding day at Clarks! We feel so lucky to be a Clarks couple.
Jennifer & Eric V. – Wedding May 7, 2016
Beautiful place!!!! I highly recommend the venue. The service was top notch. The atmosphere was perfect. The water scene is really nice. The food was amazing. And the selection of the food was broad and unique. I loved working with the staff and found everyone very flexible and helpful. It was a pleasure and can’t wait to go back.
Jennifer & Ricardo H. – Wedding May 6, 2016

Clark’s Landing is unmatched. Rain or shine, this venue is “off the hook.” The people: We worked primarily with Don, Judy, and Nicole and as a team and individually, they made us feel more comfortable and were more professional than any other option we sought. They helped establish the ceremony steps and reception entrance and were there to prompt us so we didn’t need to think about what to do. They smiled and were accommodating without hesitation no matter what we asked or needed. Their professional services, organization, and ability to calm nerves and help us feel relaxed in their “home” was incredible. And this place has process and aesthetics down. Every exit and entry door had a doorman. Every staff member had a radio. If someone needed something, all you needed to do was blink and it appeared out of nowhere. Hands down, we’ve never been treated so well; we felt like we were royalty. The food: The food was FANTASTIC. The general consensus was that the cocktail hour was unbelievable and the reception dinner was extraordinary. Our guests were so full by the time they got to the reception that they were utterly shocked to find out that there was a dinner being served. Not only was there a plethora of food; the food that was there was fantastic! Everything from the sliders to the sushi bar to the mini-milkshakes and on to the reception dinner was prepared as if we were all VIPs. And the servers and cooks were extremely pleasant and professional. We felt like we were at a state dinner. The bartenders were entertaining and the drinks were awesome. It was epic. The venue: Clark’s Landing is an INCREDIBLE venue. The view is breathtaking, rain or shine. The ballroom is gorgeous; any picture you see on the Internet cannot do justice the view from that room. The lower level cocktail hour room is elegant and warming. The outside ceremony area is unmatched; fantastic. Nicole, Don, Judy – My hat is off to you. Thank you so much for everything!

Clarks Landing is absolutely AMAZING! From the moment we stepped foot into the beautiful ballroom and saw the spectacular round dance floor and views, we knew it was the only place we wanted to get married. Nicole, Kristin, Judy, and Don were extremely professional and went above and beyond to make every detail of our day perfect. Every email and phone call was returned within a few minutes or hours and the staff made you feel special and important from day one. On the day of our wedding, there was literally not one thing that I needed to worry about besides showing up because the staff made sure everything ran so smoothly and organized! They are truly professionals and they made our day perfect! In addition to the top-notch staff and beautiful venue, the food is amazing!! My guests are still raving about the food, especially the out of this world cocktail hour, and service months later! We had the best wedding at Clarks Landing and cannot recommend this beautiful venue highly enough!!
Katherine & Lukas D. – Wedding April 30, 2016
Clarks Landing went far and beyond my expectations. I’m a big Disney fanatic and I always wanted to get married in Disney but when I came across Clarks Landing I fell in love. It was a fairytale destination for my Disney wedding and everyone says how it was the best and most beautiful wedding they’ve been too. They truly make your day special here.
Dana & Carlos M. – Wedding April 24, 2016
Where do I even begin? This venue is absolutely breathtaking from the moment you walk in. My husband and I went to a wedding at Clarks in November 2014. We absolutely fell in love with the atmosphere and most of all the food! Cocktail hour is the best hour of your guests’ lives. The friendly staff makes it a point to be by your side every step of the way while planning. I looked forward to monthly countdown emails from my wedding planner, Nicole, and the string of emails we would pass along throughout the months. She was always just a phone call or email away when I had a question or needed to vent about planning! At the conclusion of my wedding day I cried knowing that my day was over but I was quickly comforted by knowing that I had the most perfect day and that it was more than I could have ever dreamed of!
Christina & Thomas P. – Wedding April 23, 2016

I don’t know where to begin. Clark’s Landing is amazing. The moment we arrived, from the cocktail room to the large windows overlooking the dock in the ballroom, my mind was made up. Our first meeting was with Nicole, who is absolutely fantastic. She was always so responsive to the millions of emails. I sent Don and Judy were exceptional and made sure everything ran without a hitch on our wedding day. Nicole, Don, and Judy went above and beyond to make sure our wedding was memorable. It’s been a month since our wedding and our guests are still raving about how beautiful the venue is. As for the food, the guests couldn’t stop talking about it. Cocktail hour was an experience to remember. There are so many things to try and the ice sculpture of the gondola accented the room. Everyone working at Clark’s is truly a professional. My husband and I can’t thank you enough for making our wedding day a dream come true and so memorable. We couldn’t have asked for anything more. To Clark’s Landing, Nicole, Don, Judy, and the entire staff who played a role in planning or executing our wedding: from the bottom of our hearts, THANK YOU.
Adrienne & Stan T. – Wedding April 17, 2016
Fair Lawn, NJ
Clarks Landing is absolutely perfect place to celebrate the beginning of your life together! Danny & I highly recommend it! We loved everything about this place: gorgeous views, stunning sunsets, beautiful decor, amazing features, outstanding food and super helpful staff! I think the most important part while preparing for your wedding is to deal with people who know what they are doing and they love what they are doing. And staff at the Clarks has both! Nicole was there for us on every single step on the way, very responsive and helpful! Don helped us with so many decisions as well, knowing how overwhelming wedding preparation could be, they never pressured us with anything and helped along the way. We met Judy on the day of the wedding and I can’t thank her enough when she was the first one who decided to drive back to the hotel because we forgot my bouquet… Clarks have an excellent chef who can accommodate and customize your special menu, we added a station that was not even on the menu and everyone loved it! We love Clarks Landing and we can not wait to go back as a guests so we can enjoy that cocktail hour 🙂
With all honesty, this place is by far the best if you are looking for jersey shore wedding!
Julia & Daniel C. – Wedding April 10, 2016
Basking Ridge, NJ
From day one Clarks Landing went above and beyond my expectations for our April 2016 wedding. As soon as Kristin showed us the cocktail hour room and pointed out the large windows overlooking the dock where we would have our first look, my mind was made up. I can’t even begin to explain just how amazing this venue is. From the little library where we put our family photos to the gorgeous reception room with beautiful dance floor and windows overlooking the water everything was just beautiful. We chose Clarks Landing for many reasons. 1.The view-can’t beat gorgeous sunset pics on the dock. 2. The cocktail hour- any food you could possibly imagine, it’s part of the cocktail hour…and we even had a martini luge ice sculpture in the shape of our German Shepard..I assure you that you will not find that elsewhere 3. More food- I can’t even count how many people told me how good dinner was and then they were offered seconds of anything they wanted to try. Although I was too nervous to eat during the wedding the food I had at the tasting was phenomenal. 4.The ceremony-we wanted our ceremony to be on location. Having a wedding in April the weather can go either way so we were happy that the indoor ceremony option was just as beautiful as the outdoor option..And lucky we did because it was windy and freezing but the ceremony was everything I could have hoped for and more. And last but not least #5 the staff- I have never felt so special in my entire life. I’m not usually one to be picky and I don’t like bothering people with annoying questions but when it comes to wedding planning you want to be dealing with people who know what they’re doing. Any question I had, any email I sent was answered immediately. If I needed help with something, they were there to give me tips and advice. I can’t thank Don, Kristin, Nicole, and Judy enough for all of the work they do to make their couples feel special and for giving us a worry free wedding that truly was the best day of our lives.

Everything at Clarks Landing was perfect for my wedding! I could not imagine my wedding anywhere else. Everyone keeps telling us how great the wedding was and how it was one of the best weddings they have ever went too. Clarks Landing’s staff, service and overall venue was perfect! We could not have picked any place better!
Jaclyn & Steve L. – Wedding April 2, 2016
If you are looking for an outstanding venue with superior service, look no further. Our daughter was married at Clark’s on April 2, 2016 and everything from start to finish was exactly how we envisioned it would be. Nicole, Judy, and Don are true professionals who were attentive to detail and amazing to work with. Our families and friends are still raving about the wedding and the beautiful setting that is synonymous with Clark’s Landing. The ceremony was also held at Clark’s and although ind0ors, it was absolutely breathtaking as the shades lifted revealing a breathtaking view as my daughter and husband walked down the aisle. We had approximately 200 guests and the venue was perfect for our party. In addition, Clark’s hosts one wedding at time which was very important to us when choosing the perfect wedding venue. Needless to say, we highly recommend Clark’s Landing!
Larry & Kathy M. – Parents of the Bride Wedding April 2, 2016
From the minute we saw Clarks Landing Yacht Club we knew it was the wedding venue for us. Nicole worked with us to find a date that was within our budget so that we could make our dream wedding come true. Everything from the food, to the decor, to the service was first class. Our wedding day was better than I ever could have imagined and everything was PERFECT. We could not have chosen a better wedding venue or team to work with.
Samantha & Chris B. – Wedding April 1, 2016
We can’t express in words how amazing the staff is at Clark’s Landing. If you want a completely worry free event, with the BEST service, then this is the venue. Kristen, Don, and Judy were fantastic. All our guests said it was the best service they ever received at a wedding. The venue is simply BEAUTIFUL, and the staff goes above and beyond to make sure the event is memorable. Some of our guests thought the cocktail hour were the actual wedding because it was so amazing. The food is 5 Star all night!!! The band/DJ plugs into Clark’s sound system so the music is right over the entire dance floor. The shades dramatically open when the bride enters to a beautiful waterfront view are just some of the extraordinary touches that made our day so special. We got amazing photos from their private dock. The ballroom/grounds were so eloquent. If you want the PERFECT wedding venue, go see Clark’s Landing, you will be EXTREMELY impressed. After you fall in LOVE with the place itself, you will fall in LOVE with the tremendous service and outstanding food. We could not of imagined having our event anywhere else, and are forever grateful to Clarks Landing and their amazing staff.

We couldn’t be happier with our experience at Clark’s Landing. It truly was a dream wedding thanks to the excellence of Clark’s landing and their staff. Don and Nicole were exceptionally helpful with us. They both went above and beyond to ensure that we had exactly what we wanted for our wedding day. The food was amazing, and the service was exceptional. There was no doubt at any point in our experience with Clark’s Landing that we were getting exactly what we wanted. I would highly, highly, recommend this venue to anyone looking. You can’t go wrong with the location, the food, the service and especially the people.

Clark’s Landing Yacht Club exceeded our expectations! It’s difficult to put into words how amazing our wedding on February 12th truly was. The staff at Clark’s Landing are simply wonderful. Nicole helped plan our day and was very prompt when responding to our millions of e-mails. Even on the day of our wedding she was pinning up my flower girl’s dress. It is evident that she cared and truly loves what she does. Don and Judy were extremely attentive in the whole process as well. It was for them that our wedding was flawless. We had a huge bridal party and Don did an amazing job making sure everything went smoothly and everyone was where they should be. He also checked in with me throughout the night. The service was impeccable as many of my guests said. The food was bountiful and delicious, which my guests raved about. Last but not least, the beauty of Clark’s Landing Yacht Club shone, it was stunning! Without a doubt, my husband and I recommend Clark’s Landing and we hope to one day be invited to a wedding there, it was that amazing!
Stephanie & Shane O. – Wedding February 12, 2016
The first time I walked into Clarks Landing I was about to sing a wedding with Brian Kirk & the Jirks. By the end of that night I knew that was were I wanted to have my wedding. The staff at Clarks Landing knows how to treat people. In addition to the beauty of the rooms and the amazing food, my wedding guests had so much to say about the professionalism of the staff. They truly provided the best service that most of our guests had ever experienced. Matthew and I are so appreciative of how easy it was to plan a wedding with Don, Kristin and Judy. They are the most accommodating people. Kristin answered all of my emails within minutes, despite how busy she is. I had some red wine spilled on my dress during cocktail hour and Judy was there within seconds with an entourage of people to help clean it out. And they did it! AMAZING! She also set up the tables perfectly…they were exactly how I wanted them to look. Don was so knowledgeable and professional, from my initial meeting with them, to my rehearsal, to the big day. Almost all of our guests told us our wedding was the best they had ever been to. This has everything to do with Clarks Landing and we couldn’t be happier. Thank you!!!! xo
Kristen & Matt C. – Wedding February 6, 2016
It’s everything we dreamed of! Everything was taken care of, and if there was a problem I still don’t know about it! Nicole was so helpful and had a lot of great tips for overall planning, scheduling of the reception and made great recommendations I’m so happy I used! Clark’s landing staff was so professional and genuinely happy for my husband and I and were so nice! Our guests are still talking about “the wedding of the century” and it’s all because of the big and little things Nicole, Don and the rest of the staff did. Not to mention, the FOOD! Out of control!!! It was well presented and prepared and DELICIOUS! You can’t go wrong with any of the options you can choose. Book Clark’s Landing and you will be so happy you did!

Clark’s Landing is an absolutely amazing wedding venue!! From start to finish Nicole, Don, and the entire staff were amazing to work with. The food and cocktails are top of the line, and the venue is beautiful. We had a Christmas cocktail party wedding, and the decorations were out of this world. We couldn’t have asked for a better venue to get married at. It was truly a dream come true! Thank you to everyone at Clark’s Landing for making our wedding day so special!

Clarks Landing will exceed all of your expectations and then some. We toured a few venues and we had heart set on one and decided to check out Clarks just before we were about to book the other venue. When I walked into the ballroom and set my eyes on the view from the entire wall of windows, my heart dropped with overwhelming emotion (that’s the feeling you want!!) and I knew right then this is where I have to get married. Besides having the perfect location, the staff is awesome! We worked mostly with Nicole and she was there to answer any questions and would get back to me through email in minutes. The staff during the reception is unbeatable, so accommodating, happy, and eager to show you an amazing time. Our guests are still raving about our wedding, the food, the service, and the AMAZING cocktail hour!! Clarks Landing will never disappoint you!!!

It’s now been 2 weeks since my daughter’s wedding and we have not stopped hearing raves from our guests! Clark’s Landing could not have been more spectacular! I am not really even sure where to begin…. From the first time Nicole walked us through the gorgeous cocktail and ballrooms we knew this was the perfect venue for such a special day. Nicole was available to answer questions throughout the entire process. By the day of the event there was nothing for us to worry about. I want to give a BIG shout out to the bar staff and servers. They are impeccable! They cannot do enough for you and always with a smile! As for the food, our guests could not stop talking about it. Cocktail hour is truly an experience. There are just too many things to try and the room is just so beautiful that you don’t want that moment to end. Dinner is paced perfectly. Guests had time to eat and of course dance on the spacious dance floor. Don is the quintessential maître de and made sure every detail was handled. Thank you, thank you Don, Nicole and Clark’s Landing staff, you made this a day we will never forget!

Not only the day of my wedding, but the entire year leading up to my wedding. There is not one thing you have to worry about if you book this venue. If you’re someone that expects nothing but the best in service, quality and attention to detail, this is the venue for you. You will not be disappointed.

On November 22, 2015 my husband and I were married and celebrated at Clarks Landing Yacht Club. To say this was the best day of our lives is an understatement. We are completely floored by how wonderful it truly was. Don, Judy, and Kristin are incredible people and from the first day we began working with them we felt like old friends. Everyone told us there would be at least something that would go wrong at our wedding and I have to say that was 100% NOT true. The staff at Clarks Landing made sure that every detail and aspect of the day was perfect. Nothing was missed and there were things they thought of that we hadn’t. Every person that works at Clarks Landing is truly a professional. Our friends and relatives (my husband and I as well) can not stop talking about the incredible service, food, and beautiful sunset ceremony. The day was more than we hoped for and we are so happy to have had this beautiful memory at such a wonderful place.

From the moment we first met Kristin, Don and the rest of the staff, we were at ease and knew everything would be just how we pictured it. Kristin was great to work with and was always quick to respond to any questions by phone or email. We had first rate service throughout the entire process. On the night of the reception, they took great care of me, my husband, our parents and all the guests. They even took the two of us up to the reception area during cocktail hour so we could take it all in a have a few minutes to ourselves. Overall, a great experience. Our guests constantly tell us it was one of the best wedding venues they have been to. I would recommend that any future bride give Clark’s a call to check it out.

What an amazing venue! I cannot say anything bad about Kristin, Don and the all Clarks staff. They go above and beyond to do anything you ask of them. They excepted our decor early, set it all up, and made everything look better than I could have imagined. The food at the cocktail and dinner were so amazing, and my husband and I were even brought food during the cocktail hour so that we could enjoy some alone time before the festivities started. And, now that we’re alumni, the fun doesn’t end!

My husband and I knew we wanted to get married on the water, but all the places we had been to looked more like run down beach clubs than wedding venues. We knew the second that we walked in, that Clark’s Landing was where we were going to get married. The rooms and details are top notch. The view is just breathtaking. Don treated us like family and truly made every moment of our wedding perfect. Even our guests took note of the impeccable white glove service throughout our reception and RAVED about how fabulous the food was. There is not a single thing we were unhappy with. Truly the BEST of the best! We LOVE Clark’s!

Clarks Landing defines the upper echelon of wedding venues. The staff of Clarks Landing makes it their mission to ensure that you have the experience of a lifetime. My husband and I did considerable research when choosing a venue and nothing compared to Clarks Landing. Besides the stunning location, my husband and I were blown away by the venue itself. It exudes elegance and is simply beautiful. The best part of booking with Clarks Landing was the staff. Kristin was our wedding coordinator and she was wonderful. She was courteous, patient and so helpful. She was always there for guidance and support. Don, the general manager, was amazing. He is so personable and knowledgeable. He makes sure the vision for your wedding is executed to perfection. The staff is fantastic! Our wedding day went off without a hitch and our guests were wowed by the venue and the staff. It was a dream come true and my husband and I are forever grateful to the staff at Clarks Landing!

Nicole from day one always gave me amazing service and guiding me throughout the process!!! Don and Judy were also so amazing with the service on our wedding day 10/24/15!!! They are all so well organized! They expected our decor the Saturday before our wedding, gave them instructions on how we wanted everything set up and it looked amazing better than I imagined. During the cocktail hour our personal server even brought our food and drinks so we can enjoy our food. Also I needed some Bobby pins to pin up a little piece of my hair Judy, Don and our personal server were on top of it!! The venue itself is just stunning.

It doesn’t get better than Clark’s Landing!! It is such a beautiful venue with a beautiful waterfront view. The staff goes above and beyond to take care of you on your special day. Everyone there works so great together as a team and it really does show. The food is also out of this world, and the bar is top notch. Their signature drinks are amazing. Everything went so smooth on my wedding day. Not a single hiccup. They run a tight ship there…. Someone spilled red wine on the back of my gown during cocktail hour when they hugged me and in less than 5 minutes, Don and Nicole had me in the bridal suite with their stain removers. Stain was completely gone as if it never happened…. Couldn’t thank them enough for being as on top of things as they were!! Thank you Clark’s for making mine and Chris’ day perfect, and especially thanks to Nicole and Don for being wonderful through out the entire planning process. You guys are the best!!
Renee & Chris H. – Wedding October 18, 2015
I wish there were enough words in the English language to describe how much my husband and I love Clark’s. We went to two other venues before we met Nicole at Clark’s and from the moment she opened the doors we fell in love. We fell in love with the Venue, we fell in a love with Nicole, Don, Judy and Alana (our server for the day). The professionalism, the ideas and advice, the hugs and friendship. I honestly do not know how people get married anywhere else. Our guest had nothing but wonderful things to say after our wedding and are still talking about it 3 weeks later. I’m actually upset I can’t get married there every year. Oh and the food.. Omg the food. It was all delicious and made with love. We feel like we have made forever friends at Clarks and we encourage everyone to feel that experience!

Ryan and I were married at Clark’s Landing just about a month ago, and it was perfect!!! From the first time we met with Kristin, everything was so easy. We moved to Texas mid-way through our wedding planning, and Clark’s could not have been more accommodating with emailing to plan out details and scheduling to meet with us the few times we would be in New Jersey before the wedding (for our food/cake tasting and final walk through). They are meticulous with planning and made sure every detail was to our specification. Kristin was always available to talk and answered all of my emails promptly. The venue itself is absolutely gorgeous, and everyone is still raving to me about how perfect everything was. The cocktail hour is spectacular – the best I have ever seen. Our personal waitress for the night, Julie, brought me and Ryan all of the food to try in the bridal suite (after we realized we would never get a chance to actually eat in the cocktail hour with everyone lining up to talk to us). It was all delicious. The reception was amazing; Clark’s has perfected a seamless flow for a wedding. They never skipped a beat. We moved from introductions to dances to speeches and then right into food and dancing. We opted for a band, and they were able to plug into Clark’s sound system which sounded awesome. They also updated the lights from our first visit for the chandeliers change colors as well as the ceiling, which looked very nice. The food options were delicious, and the wait staff is phenomenal. My mom couldn’t believe that every time she was back near her seat she had a brand new drink waiting for her. They offer everyone seconds or a different dinner option which is I have never experienced. Our wedding at Clark’s was better than I could have ever dreamed up. The team is absolutely amazing to work with, and I would recommend them to anyone. There is such a sense of family, it is incredible. Thank you Kristin & Don!!!
Nicolette & Ryan C. – Wedding October 9, 2015
I can’t say much that every other review doesn’t already say. Our wedding was everything we had hoped for. Nicole was wonderful to work with from beginning to end, and Don and Judy helped all the details come together at the end. Everyone there is so professional and truly seem to enjoy their jobs. We have gotten endless compliments on how our wedding was “one of the best” our guests had ever been to. The venue, while expensive, delivers on everything that it promises and it is easy to see where your money is going. While they host several weddings a week, you and your fiance are made to feel like you’re the only couple on their minds. Highly recommend Clarks!

After visiting what seemed like an endless amount of places to have our wedding; We went to see Clark’s Landing in Point Pleasant.
We met with Nicole. I will admit my fiance instantly fell in love but I wasn’t 100% sure. We had been to so many Venues, I started to become overwhelmed.
After we booked our date with Nicole I was happy with every single aspect of our wedding. Nicole helped guide me every step of the way, checking in to see if she could help me in any way with our planning. Every question and concern I had was answered right away.
The day of the wedding everything was perfect.
The food , the service, everything was impeccable. Every request & change I had was taken care of seamlessly. (And I had many special requests)
My husband’s friends from work were still talking about how great our wedding was months later. Both my parents are very picky, and they loved everything! Nicole and Don make you feel more like family then a client. They take a genuine interest in making sure your wedding day is perfect.
Thank you Nicole & Don helping us create the perfect wedding.

I had my wedding there two weeks ago 9/25/15-and people are STILL calling me, e mailing me, and texting me and my family how beautiful Clarks Landing is, and the food is PERFECTION!!! I loved how everyone was enjoying cocktail hour so much and thought how beautiful it was-thinking that was where the reception was going to take place. When we told them oh no no there is a ballroom upstairs their reaction was priceless…”there is more to this place,” “there is an upstairs? This isnt it?” It was awesome. From the food, to the professionalism and friendly staff who over time became family to us all there truly are no words to describe the emotion, love, and perfection of our wedding….THANKS TO CLARKS LANDING YACHT CLUB…… overall rating exceeds expectations 🙂 GIRLS IT IS A DREAM COME TRUE!!!!

From the moment we walked into Clarks Landing, we knew that was the place we wanted to have our wedding reception. After visiting Clarks and looking at other venues, nothing else even came close to comparing. It is elegant and beautiful. The location and views are amazing! The cocktail hour room is so pretty and the ballroom is gorgeous. From the Vera Wang china, to the signature drinks, every detail is carefully thought out and executed perfectly – and Clarks thinks of everything! Leading up to the wedding, we were never stressed or worried about our wedding day because we knew Clarks had everything under control and that was such a relief. Don, Nicole, and Kristin were such big helps with organizing everything and making sure we had everything we needed and wanted! Even attending other friends’ weddings, we can’t help but to compare to our wedding day and still think nothing will be able to top our wedding. Our guests continue to rave about our wedding and say that it was the best wedding they have ever been to! They rave about the view, the food, drinks, the staff, the service…everything! As a bride and groom, we were treating like a king and queen, and we are so happy we chose Clarks as our venue – thank you for making our wedding day absolutely perfect!
Emily & Gavin M. – Wedding September 18, 2015
Clarks Landing is the fairy tale wedding you always dreamed of, and much much more! After our initial tour, we just knew Clarks was the venue for us. What attracted us most was how much it didn’t feel like a typical wedding venue. It feels like you are in someone’s gorgeous home decorated with beautiful wood furniture and stunning art work. The climax builds as you transition from the parking lot to the floor to ceiling window filled room for cocktail hour and then upstairs to the jaw dropping ballroom with the most beautiful crystal chandeliers and centerpieces. Without Don, Kristin, Nicole, and Judy there would be no Clarks Landing! It is evident that they are passionate and truly enjoy what they do. Gina, our bridal attendant, was fantastic and so attentive to our every need from the moment we walked in to the moment we left. The food is absolutely delicious and there is so much of it! Seriously, what venue offers second helpings?? Clarks does! Before cocktail hour even ended, my brother approached me and said how all our guests were talking about how this it he best wedding they’ve ever been to. Our friends and family ate, drank and danced the night away, We were so thrilled to see everyone enjoying themselves. I can’t say enough great things about Clarks Landing. In the two short months that we’ve been married, we’ve already referred someone who booked their wedding. We had the classiest wedding that our family and friends will be talking about for years to come.

We had the best night of our lives at Clark’s Landing! Their service and professionalism are on a level that is so impressive, you could not believe it until you see it. The night was flawless thanks to the entire team, from their willingness to meet every request that we had down to Don getting on his knees to put my flats on for me when my feet felt like they were going to fall off. Guest after guest told us it was the best wedding they have ever been to, and the food was off the charts. Tell your guests not to eat for a week prior to the wedding because the cocktail hour has more options than anyone could dream of and the option to have seconds of any entree they wanted at the reception made all of our guests amazed. I just can’t say enough good things. You would be crazy not to choose Clark’s Landing as your venue – they made our dreams come true in a way that I never thought possible.
Jillian & Tom D. – Wedding September 12, 2015
Perfection! From the minute we talked into Clark’s and spoke with Kristin, it was the beginning of the perfect wedding for Larysa and I. Everything about Clark’s is five star. Not only were our expectations met, but they were exceeded beyond our imagination. From the planning, to the staff and the food. Thank you so much, from the bottom of our hearts for the best and most memorable night of our lives! We will NEVER forget it! Truly a TOP NOTCH venue!
Larysa & Dan S. – Wedding September 7, 2015
My husband and I were married at Clarks Landing Yacht Club on September 6, 2015. It was an amazing day, and we could not be more thankful for the experience we had. While there were many VIPs involved in making sure everything went well for us that day, we absolutely must give a shout out to Don, Nicole, Judy and the rest of the Clarks Landing staff. Every person that works at Clarks is truly a professional and they take their jobs of making each wedding special very seriously. The wedding industry is over the top these days and it’s pretty difficult for venues to set themselves apart from one another – Clarks Landing has succeeded in doing so because of how much they care about their couples and because of the genuine love they have for weddings. From the moment we took our tour (back in June 2013!) we knew that we had found something special. While planning was by no means easy for me for many reasons (outside of their control), Nicole did everything in her power to answer my questions quickly, calm me down when I was becoming overwhelmed with the details, and even meet with me when I was home for the weekend and wanted to stop by. I have never heard of a wedding venue ordering couples specific brands of alcohol on request, allowing guests to order 2nds, taking the time to acknowledge EVERY couple that was married there on social media, or throwing their couples holiday parties. I have also never been to a wedding where each table had their OWN server for the entire evening. Over the last two years Clarks has added additional food stations, décor, new centerpieces, etc., and I am certain that if you’re reading this trying to choose a venue that by the time your wedding arrives they’re going to have even more great ideas to set your wedding apart from the norm. Our friends and relatives have not stopped talking about great the food, view, and service was and we could not agree more! Thanks for a great wedding!

There are really no words to describe how amazing my experience was with Clarks Landing Yacht Club. My wedding was everything a girl could have dreamed of and more. It was the best day of our lives and I will never forget the wonderful memories we made at Clarks. It was perfect!! The location on the water is beautiful and the sunset is priceless. The venue itself is breathtaking and the service is top notch. Nicole was phenomenal and there for me from day one. She is so kind, helpful, knowledgeable and professional. I will always remember her and value the friendship we created. I was so glad she was there the day of our wedding. She was my rock! Judy and Don were also amazing the night of our wedding and they made sure everything went as planned. They were awesome and so detail oriented! Everything I could of ever dreamed. I did not have to worry about a thing that day which is so important! I knew my fairy-tale wedding would come true the second I walked through the doors and I was right! Worth every penny. Our family and friends had the time of their lives. They raved about the elaborate cocktail hour, great service and delicious dinner. Some people said it was even the best wedding they had ever been too! I can’t wait to come back and will forever be grateful to Clarks and all the staff. I would definitely recommend this venue to every bride out there 🙂
Meghan & Michael S. – Wedding August 29, 2015
I loved every part of being a Clark’s bride. During the planning phase, I would send emails at all hours requesting information about details. Each time I would receive an email back within an hour with the information requested. The week before the wedding was incredibly stressful as relatives and friends changed their status from not attending to attending then back again. Nicole and Don were amazing in reassuring me that this all was absolutely normal and no burden to them at all. They made sure to tailor our wedding to fit our casual personalities. Before the cocktail hour started, Don and Nicole made certain every detail was in place and I was able to immediately relax and enjoy time with guests. They are experts at bustling a bride and were able to help troubleshoot when one of the clasps on my bustle broke. As soon as cocktail hour began, Jess, our personal attendant, brought my husband and myself a sampling of all of the hors d’oeuvres and specialties being enjoyed by our guests…along with our signature cocktails. She knew that as soon as we walked out there, time would fly by and we would not get a chance to eat. She was so right. We had 10 awesome minutes alone together sampling all the food and watching our guests come in through the secret speakeasy window. As soon as I sat down at the sweetheart table, I noticed someone had taken my flat shoes from the bridal suite and placed them under my chair…knowing I would want to change. They charged my mother’s cell phone during dinner so it didn’t die out. Our food was raved about by guests; the taste, presentation and abundance were all wow factors. Our attendant kept a cold drink in our hand all through the reception and the bartenders knew exactly how to make our cocktails (I wanted mine weak and in a tall glass so I don’t spill). I have many more examples of how the staff at Clark’s made our day outstanding. The attention to detail was impressive.

Two months later, people are still calling me saying it was the best wedding ever! Very accommodating to our cultural needs, delicious food, and detail oriented. I already want to plan a vow renewal at Clark’s Landing so that I can go back! Love them!

From the first time we stepped foot into Clarks Landing I knew I wanted to be married there. When we walked into the ballroom I had tears in my eyes. Planning a wedding is very overwhelming and Kristin was able to bring ease with her quick and constant communication with me. Don and Judy were extremely attentive to meet every need, concern, and desire of ours the day of the wedding. A year later and all of guests still continue to rave about the five star table side service and how delicious and plentiful the food was. I will say the chocolate peanut butter dessert is a must! We are so happy we joined the Clarks Landing family!

Best decision we ever made! Kristin , Don, and Nicole were a pleasure to work with. Every single staff member was professional, accommodating, and courteous. The ballroom and grounds are stunning, and every single thing you can imagine is accounted for stress free! My guests, photographer, and dj were amazed at the beauty of the grounds and the seamless coordination of vendors. My wedding was more beautiful and perfect than I could’ve ever imagined.

Clarks Landing in Point Pleasant, NJ provided an amazing venue and atmosphere for my wedding on 7/18/15. With only 7 months to plan- Don, Nicole, Judy, and all the staff at Clarks helped us prepare for the best day of our lives. They were always professional, positive, calming, and sincere. Although they do at least 3 weddings a week we appreciate that they always treated our wedding with a sense of importance, as if it was the only wedding on their minds. They made answering each phone call and email a priority and were amazing to work with each step of the way. They were flexible and always accommodating to our requests. We had our ceremony outside on the grounds with the beautiful Manasquan River as a backdrop. Guests were greeted with a champagne toast and ushered into a lavish cocktail hour with open bar and an ice sculpture. Dinner was a 4 course meal with an intermezzo ( 3 Entree options and 3 dessert options taken table side). We got to design our wedding cake as well. All of which was included the the package at Clarks. I truly cannot say enough about this beautiful and elegant venue and the gracious and caring people who work there. Our day was incredible and I wish we could do it over and over again! If you pick Clarks Landing you will not be disappointed. Your guests will be raving about the beauty, delicious food, and hospitality. Thank you to Clarks for giving us the wedding of our dreams!
Julie & Nathan K. – Wedding July 18, 2015
Clarks was so professional and supportive throughout the entire wedding process. Everyone including Don and Nicole made themselves very accessible and easy to talk to; any questions or concerns that I had were answered within my phone call or meeting with them. The cocktail hour and dinner was amazing, my husband and I are both gluten free and Clarks made sure there were more than enough options for us to choose from. It was so nice that they were so accommodating. I highly recommend Clarks for your wedding venue!

I am not even sure where to begin to express my gratitude, love, appreciation, and extreme gratefulness to the team at Clarks Landing for making my dream wedding a fairy-tale! From the moment Eric and I walked in Clarks Landing, we knew that was THE place!! The feeling you get when you walk into that amazingly beautiful ballroom is absolutely breathtaking! Don, Kristin, and the entire staff is beyond incredible!! They did everything possible to make our wedding day the most perfect, memorable day ever… and they far succeeded!! Aside from earlier rain and terrible humidity, we had a beautiful outdoor ceremony thanks to the staff who worked extremely hard to make sure we got married outside! The cocktail hour was incredible (as per all of our family and friends)! The ballroom was impeccable… the food was outstanding… the staff worked above and beyond to accommodate all of our guests… our private server was amazing… it was ALL perfect!!! Thank you all again for making our special day the most perfect we could have ever hoped for!!!
Jennifer & Eric L. – Wedding June 19, 2015

From the minute we walked in to look at Clarks Landing while deciding on a venue, we were in love not only with the venue, but the amazing staff and service provided there.
Kristin was our point person from day one and was always prompt and sweet in her e-mail exchanges (even through several sick relatives and seating changes! Thanks again for your patience!), but Nicole was also amazingly helpful when I asked for a tour to show my husband’s family around and Judy could not have been more helpful leading up to the day and the day of (and the day after!) Don was the master of keeping our slightly-disorganized group organized and was always SO kind, funny, friendly, and wonderful to deal with.
The food was spectacularly delicious and abundant (we had guests tell us they had to come up with a “game plan” to hit all the stations at cocktail hour!) and the venue itself could not have been more beautiful.
We loved the bridal suite, the little touches (snacks when we arrived and a sampling from the cocktail hour kept us going and actually eating on the wedding day!). Everything was set up beautifully and I can tell you that I did not have to worry about a single thing the day of the wedding because everyone at Clarks Landing was so wonderful, competent, kind, patient, and amazing at what they do!
When people ask if we’re sad the wedding is over, our answer is always the same, “No, we can’t be sad because the day could not have been more perfect.”
Thank you again; we have AMAZING memories of our wedding thanks to all of you!!!

Absolutely amazing venue and staff. We got married here in June and everything was flawless. Kristen and Don were fantastic to work with and helped me every step of the way. So many venues make you feel like you are being nickel and dimed but this place is far and above the rest. Everything is included in the price and there are no last minute surprises. They handled everything down to the last detail and on my wedding day I was able to relax and enjoy my family and friends!! Hands down the best wedding venue and we would recommend them 10 times over. Absolutely beautiful reception hall as well as great staff! Thank you for making our wedding day perfect!!!
Erin & Eric S. – Wedding June 6, 2015
From the moment Kristin showed us the venue until the moment my daughter and son-in-law recited their vows, we never thought twice about our decision to have their wedding here. The most amazing thing was that if I thought we needed something, it magically appeared before we even had a chance to ask. For example, the groom’s father’s boutonniere broke. Before requesting replacement, it appeared. Their attention to detail in impeccable. The backdrop is magical, the chairs perfectly aligned and the general manager Donald Calello hand placed every rose petal to ensure a perfect canvas for this special moment in their lives. Donald is a gem, who is a stickler for details, and it is obvious he loves what he does. He makes Clark’s Landing the finest venue in the Garden State. From the event coordinator to the general manager to his assistant Judy and the staff, everyone smiled the entire night and could not do enough for the bride, groom, their families and friends. They made us feel special. They made sure drinks and food were plentiful. Kudos to the chef for the quality of our meals from the spectacular cocktail hour to the Veal Oscar, Chateaubriand and Creme Brulee. We couldn’t be more pleased with the results. And we should know because this is our second wedding in six months (both daughters)!
Lori L. – Mother of the Bride Wedding May 31, 2015
WOW! With a recommendation from a friend, we called and scheduled a meeting with Kristin. As we walked into the facility, we were breath taken! After visiting many other venues, this location really was exactly where we had imagined and dreamed our wedding to be. Simply a magical and truly fairy-tale worthy. Words can not express the emotional impact and beauty that you walk into. Kristin was beyond the professional and walked us through every step of our wedding. She was very easy to talk to; an understatement, between the phone calls and extra visits with our family to see the venue… easily accomplished. It was clearly obvious we had true wedding planning professionals. Any question we might have had, the answers were easily provided. No detail was left un-turned. The food was fantastic! For our rehearsal, what we thought might take an hour, was accomplished in 20 minutes, with all steps and questions answered. On our wedding day, we arrived and were quickly greeted and escorted to our bridal suite, which was amazing. As I completed my final touch-up, my soon to be husband arrived and was escorted to a private area for he and his groomsmen to prepare for our day. Our First look on the private dock can not be expressed in words, how beautiful it was! Our ceremony was held on site, outside with a breath taking view of the river. It was simply awesome! As we entered our cocktail reception we looked through the privacy mirror to “cheat” and scope out our guests as they awaited our entrance, which was amazing! The level of service by the staff was above and beyond expectations, which truly was exceptional in every respect. Our personal “butler,” made sure our glass was never more than 3 sips down, food was on our table, and towels, both wet and dry were on hand as we danced the afternoon away. Kudos to Clark’s Landing, Kristin, Don, Judy and everyone else involved. They certainly made our wedding AMAZING!!! A 5 Star rating-make it 100 Stars!
Cynthia & Jeffrey S. – Wedding May 30, 2015
Clarks Landing is by far the best venue at the Jersey Shore. My husband and I looked at about 10 other venues and none of them even compared to Clarks Landing. The cocktail hour room is absolutely stunning and the ballroom has some of the most beautiful views. Our guests still have not stopped talking about how breathtaking Clarks Landing is. Additionally, the food and service was top of the line. We had people coming up to us at the wedding telling us how amazing their servers were and how it was some of the best food they have ever eaten. People cannot stop talking about how much food was at the cocktail hour and how amazing everything was. Don and Nicole were extremely helpful and were there every step of the way to make sure everything was flawless. We are seriously praying that one of our friends gets married here just so we can go back!!! I promise, you will be so thankful if you decide to book your wedding at Clarks Landing– It is worth every penny!

We recently had our wedding at Clarks Landing on the Sunday of Memorial Day weekend and it was PERFECT. Clarks Landing isn’t wonderful venue with an excellent staff. All you want on your wedding day is for all your planning to fall in to place and run smoothly and Clarks Landing does just that! They promised me a wonderful day where I wouldn’t have to worry about a thing and they delivered. Not to mention how beautiful the space is and how delicious the food is! Our guests gushed about how gorgeous and elegant the venue is and how amazing the food was. The staff is extremely organized and personable and are very detail oriented. I loved working with Don and Kristen and being able to call or email wit’s any questions or request and getting a speedy reply. Clarks landing made my dream wedding happen and I’m already hoping that I get to attend a Clarks wedding as a guest in the future!
Danielle & Madoc R. – Wedding May 24, 2015
To say 5 out of 5 is to sell this venue short! There is no scale to rate people like Nicole Hoffman and Don. The level of attention you will receive and genuine excitement for your business will be unparalleled! If there was one thing that was a consistent aggravation for me throughout the wedding planning process, it was the idea that I should be grateful that a vendor was willing to take all of my money and work for me?! I would literally lose my mind over this. That is not the case at Clark’s Landing. With each and every problem, whether it was specific to the venue or not, Nicole was there for me. She covered how to deal with particular vendors, how to deal with the church and the most difficult topic of all – family! Dealing with Nicole was like having a wedding planner for free! There is literally nothing she cannot or will not do to help make your special day as special as it can be! To add to all of that, I never felt like the negotiations regarding pricing was anything short of candid and fair. So many venues that you go to will try and squeeze every penny they can out of you, this venue tries to give you the best bang for your buck that they can and that is an awesome feeling to have when you are putting so much money into one evening. This place was worth every penny and more! Don deserves his own paragraph because he is just that good at his job. You won’t get a chance to meet him until your tasting because he is busy giving 125% to someone’s wedding, but when you see him in action for the first time you will know you have nothing to worry about. In the Marine Corps we called people like Don a fire and forget weapon system! There is no crisis or situation that he cannot manage for you. He will ensure your entire evening goes off without a hitch whether that includes keeping your vendors in line and ensuring that they provide what you paid for or pulling together spots for 5 guests you forgot to tell him were coming!
Kelly & Michael K. – Wedding May 23, 2015
This was definitely the wedding as I envision it to be. They did everything they promised and more…. Family and friends are still commenting on how much fun they had and how elegant everything was that evening. I hope one day to be a guest at Clarks Landing! If you are wondering if it’s worth it…..I can honestly tell you….its spectacular!

You fall in love with this venue as soon as you walk in! The staff is absolutely wonderful especially Nicole. My husband and I needed no convincing after seeing the place and speaking with Nicole, she made it feel like home to us and made us feel like one of her family members. I have been getting so many compliments on their service, literally every time I see someone who attended they tell me that their waiter or waitress was so attentive and catered to their every need and want. The food was absolutely DELICIOUS and I actually got to sit down to eat because they took care of everything. I am so happy we chose Clarks to have our reception because we truly feel like we are apart of the Clarks family and they can do no wrong in our book. The venue is breathtaking and their staff is phenomenal. WHEN you choose Clarks it will be the best decision you’ve ever made second to saying “I Do”

Clarks Landing was only the second place that my husband and I looked at for our wedding venue, and we fell absolutely in love! It is literally the MOST beautiful place around. We booked our wedding in July of 2013 for our May 8, 2015 wedding. Nicole kept in touch with us for the whole two years and made us feel like family. Her positive energy illuminated the wedding planning process and I had not a thing to worry about. She goes above and beyond to accommodate every one of your wedding day wishes. The whole team works very hard to make you feel at ease. I was concerned about not having a wedding coordinater but let me tell you, it would have been a waste of money! Nicole, Don, and Judy orchestrated our whole day beautifully and noticed things that needed to be done before me or my husband could even realize. Beyond that, the food is absolutely amazing! We have been receiving endless compliments on how great our wedding was. They run a great show and truly made me feel like a princess on my big day!

Clarks Landing was by far and away the most amazing reception venue. Our family and friends, 3 months later, are STILL talking about how amazing our wedding was! My friends comment on how relaxed I was that day, and it all had to do with how comfortable Clarks made me feel. Don, Kristin, Judy and the team made sure everything was completely handled and I didn’t have to worry about a thing, which was honestly worth every penny. My husband and I truly enjoyed every moment of our wedding, and they even made sure we ate! Our private server was amazing, we loved her and she even packaged us up one of each of our entrees and desserts to take home with us to eat again, which we did the next day! Judy even got down under the table and helped me put my sparkly sandals on during the toasts so I could dance the night away! The guests couldn’t stop talking about how amazing the food was and how beautiful the venue was, how everything was done perfectly from beginning to end. There is NO BETTER place to have your wedding and you honestly will not regret it! Best decision we made by far! Thanks to the team at Clarks, you truly made it the best day of our lives!

I attended a wedding here in 2013 and knew that my daughter would love this venue. What’s not to like! From the beginning Nicole was professional, knowledgeable and a pleasure in helping us plan this day. The venue is totally elegant, the view is spectacular and when the sun sets its surreal. The cocktail hour is quite an experience and there are plenty of places to sit. After the cocktail hour there is a five course dinner! The food was excellent and the wait staff couldn’t have been more friendly and helpful. Did I mention each table has their own personal waiter to even get you drinks!!! My family was amazed and said it was most beautiful wedding they have ever attended. Thank you Clarks Landing.

Every single member of the Clarks Landing team is absolutely wonderful and go above and beyond to make sure that your day is special! Kristin was my primary contact when we first started and answered so many questions about preferred vendors to use for exactly what we wanted! Don was amazing with the food and made our wedding day so special making sure we did everything we wanted! Judy made us feel better every single time we went to talk to her about decor and the whole vision I had became true because of her expertise! She also let my dad and I practice our choreographed dance the week of the wedding on the circle dance floor until we felt comfortable! Judy and Don also made the day go seamlessly and we couldn’t have felt more taken care of! The most amazing venue any bride and groom could ask for! Can’t wait to go back for valentines day!

It doesn’t seem like there is anything about Clarks Landing that hasn’t already been said. It is hands down THE BEST. I feel so lucky to have had my wedding here and truly believe there could not have been a better venue for us. Don and Nicole were absolutely amazing throughout the whole process and they coordinated a wonderful and flawless day and night. They somehow even got mother nature to cooperate with perfect weather! Haha, but for real – we got lucky with a warm and sunny day on April 18th and we were able to have our ceremony outside. It was breathtaking to say our vows under a beautiful pergola strung with starfish with incredible views of the water. The cocktail hour is out of this world. Countless guests commented on how good the food was and almost over the top with the amount of options! They were even more blown away as they entered the elegant ballroom upstairs for the reception. Our band was playing as the sun set over the Manasquan river and our introductions were made. The dinner and reception continued on flawlessly as everyone ate delicious food and danced the night away. This is all thanks to the top notch service that Clarks Landing provides. My husband and I felt like royalty the whole night and our own personal server provided more than we could have needed. The only complaint I have is that the wedding is over!! Seriously – you might go into post-wedding depression wishing you could have another moment of your amazingly wonderful beautiful wedding at Clarks!

We cannot say enough about Clarks Landing Yacht Club. They made it so that the entire planning process was simple and all-inclusive; furthermore, their staff was incredibly professional and easy to do business with. Many of our guests were blown away by the execution and service provided the men and women who served as staff on the night of the event. We received dozens of compliments explaining how our wedding was “the best wedding I have ever been to”. From the fancy interior-decor to the breath-taking exterior views, Clarks Landing was the perfect venue for our wedding. We wish we could do it all over again!
Tiffany & Cory A. – Wedding April 17, 2015
We got married in April and everyone still tells me how amazing our wedding was, how they still dream about the food, and how it was the best wedding they’d ever been to! Kristin was so wonderful to work with, always very responsive and professional. My husband is in the military so we weren’t able to plan far in advance, it was a miracle that Clarks had a date open that worked with his schedule. We had NINE weeks to plan, and without Kristin, it would have been impossible. We had friends and family travel from all over the country to celebrate with us, and they were all blown away. Best Day Ever.
Jackie & Levi H. – April 12, 2015
Wow! I can only say how great this place is! From our first meeting with Kristen to the end to the evening every person we dealt with was wonderful. Although this was our second wedding in 4 months everyone at Clarks made it easy and stress free, not to mention all that that bride and groom expected that night! Thanks you!

Clarks Landing is amazing!!!! They have a great team of staff. We were treated like King and Queen. We wouldn’t change anything about our wedding. I wish that night would lasted forward. Thank you Don, Nicole and Judy for making our dreams come true.
Courtney & Ryan A. – Wedding January 9, 2015
The moment we walked into the foyer of the Clarks Landing Yacht Club in Pt. Pleasant, we knew that we had found the perfect place for our January wedding. The sun was setting over the Manasquan on the day we visited, providing a stunning view from CLYC’s cocktail & main reception areas. Their facilities are modern yet have a warm, classic feel… in particular, we fell in love with the richly wood-paneled cocktail area. Food options? Plentiful (way, way too many options to list in this review) and delicious. Clarks partners with Bovella’s Bakery in Westfield, NJ to provide wedding cakes, and they didn’t disappoint. If the beautiful location & fantastic cuisine aren’t enough to convince you, just talk to the staff at Clarks Landing and you’ll be hooked. Nicole, Don, and the whole CLYC team attended to every detail during the planning phase as well as on the day itself. They’re truly experts in the art & science of executing a picture-perfect wedding. Nothing rattled Nicole and Don: special dietary requirements (halal) were no problem, and when we asked if we could set up a photobooth the day before the reception, they were fine with it. On the day of the wedding, they worked seamlessly with our florist, entertainment (we had both a band and a belly dancer) and our guests to make sure that everyone enjoyed themselves (and that everything ran on schedule). We had some gifts & ornamental items that we simply couldn’t fit into our transportation at the end of the night, but that wasn’t a problem either: all of the items got locked up for the night and were available for us to pick up the next day. Here’s a good example of just how personally invested the Clarks staff becomes in your event: we worked mostly with Nicole during the planning process (Don expertly handled the “day of” maitre d’ responsibilities) but she actually came in to Clarks on our wedding day on her own time (a Saturday, her day off) for moral support and to see how everything came together. How awesome is that? All in all, our Clarks Landing experience was everything we hoped for… we simply cannot recommend them highly enough!
Shade & Ed F. – Wedding January 3, 2015

My husband and I were married at Clarks Landing on December 27, 2014. We could not have been happier with our experience – from our initial tour with Kristin last January to our server Carolyn helping my maid of honor with my very difficult bustle on the big day – everyone and everything at Clarks was top notch! Kristin and Don were very helpful during the planning phase, promptly answering all emails and calls and working hard to ensure that our wedding was personalized to us – our theme was black, gold and red, so Don even switched out the strawberries in the welcome champagne to blackberries! Don also held a quickie rehearsal just before the ceremony, as the holidays prevented us from having one. Judy did an awesome job setting up our tables – they looked beautiful and exactly as I’d pictured – and helping organize us for our introductions. All of the servers were amazing. Many guests told us that they couldn’t believe how attentive the service was and that they felt like VIPs! The server assigned to my husband and I, Carolyn, went above and beyond, even helping my maid of honor bustle my dress (twice!). The cocktail hour was awesome, the food delicious, the venue gorgeous, and the service superb. Clark’s reputation as one of the best wedding venues in NJ is certainly well-deserved! Thanks for the amazing day and wonderful memories!
Jessica & Frank F. – Wedding December 27, 2014
Clarks Landing is the perfect venue for a wedding! The entire atmosphere, food and friendly staff made our wedding day absolutely perfect and so special! I have received so many compliments about how amazing the whole night was! I highly recommend Clarks Landing!
Jennifer & Stephen W. – Wedding December 20, 2014
The fairy tail idea of getting married at Clarks Landing all began when my God-Mother had her reception at Clarks back in 2010 (I believe). After the church we pulled into the parking lot and as we (my now husband and I) walked in the front doors I thought to myself it would be a dream come true if I could get married here. Well a few years later, my then boyfriend and my now husband, we got engaged August of 2013. I knew that day I was going to do anything and everything to make my dream wedding at Clarks come true. A few weeks after we made an appointment with Nicole to see the grounds, there was no question this is where I was going to get married. The features Clarks has to offer is like none other. From the cocktail hour that has over 20 different food options to the 5 course delicious reception dinner and that little window that over looks the cocktail hour. Everything is just simply amazing. So amazing Clarks Landing was the one and only venue we looked at. After discussing finances with my family we booked our date, December 5th, 2014. We had about a year and 2 months (who’s counting) left of planning until the best moment and party of our lives. That count down went by ohh soooo fast! Leading up to the big day I naturally had planning questions, needed advice, recommendations. I never once hesitated to email Nicole about anything and everything I could think of. Every question, concern, problem I had she was right their guiding my through… Finally the big day comes I was as cool as a cucumber, I gave Don and Nicole the wheel and they drove the entire show from telling me when to get changed, directing us where to go, the dip kiss when the doors open up when we were announced. You name it everything was perfectly timed and executed. I cannot thank them enough for all they have done for us from their professionalism, to recommendations to making our picture perfect dream day the best party we will ever have in our lives come true. The Clarks Landing venue, staff and management are the top of the line. If I could I would rewind back to that day and relive every single moment. Thank YOU Clarks for everything you did to make me feel like a princess on the most perfect day!!! 🙂
Melanie & Chris W. – Wedding December 5, 2014
We love this place and the staff!!!!! Nicole and Don are awesome. People can not stop talking about the food, the staff and how beautiful the place is. There wasn’t one issue with anything perfectly ran wedding! They really made us feel like we were a king and queen!
Kaitlyn & Vincent R. – Wedding November 28, 2014
My husband and I first visited Clarks Landing Yacht Club two and half years before our wedding. As soon Nicole took us inside, we knew had to get married there! Every inch of Clarks Landing is covered with impeccable details from the beautiful cocktail hour space to the breathtaking ballroom. The views of the water from each room are spectacular. Even though it rained on our wedding day, we were able to sneak outside in the drizzle for a few famous Clarks sunset pictures! The food was out of this world! Our guests are still talking about it. They loved the seemingly endless options during cocktail hour. Our personal server (Yes, they assign a personal server to you!) even brought us a huge sampling of cocktail hour foods in the bridal suite so that we could take a moment and enjoy. Dinner was just as delicious! The staff at Clarks Landing is truly amazing. Nicole helped us with every step along the way. On our big day, Don, Judy, and Nicole made everyone feel so comfortable and at ease, and because of their hard work, everything ran so smoothly and was absolutely perfect! The entire staff is fabulous. Our guests are still raving about every part of our wedding…the food, the staff, and the venue! They keep telling us it was the best wedding they have ever been to. Our wedding was absolutely perfect thanks to the beautiful Clarks Landing Yacht Club and the wonderful staff!! We truly had the wedding of our dreams!

My husband Matt and I got married at Clarks Landing at the end of November and we truly could not have picked a better venue. We had looked at several places before visiting our final destination, Clarks Landing. The moment that we met Nicole, we knew we had found the perfect place! Her passion and love for weddings made us even more excited than we already were. We needed to discuss our final decision with our parents before booking, and as Nicole was off the following day, she graciously let me call her at home if we chose to book our date with her. From that moment on, Nicole, Don, Kristin and the entire Clarks Landing team, made us feel like we were family. They answered every question, from the moment we booked our wedding right up until our wedding day, immediately regardless of the day and time! The day of our wedding could not have been more perfect! From the time we arrived from our church ceremony, Nicole and Don made sure Matt and I, our bridal party, and our parents had everything that we needed, from making sure we were able to sample the cocktail hour in our private suite, to Don and Nicole bustling my dress like a pro! Clarks Landing and the entire staff are the best of the best. I cannot imagine getting married anywhere!I would highly recommend every bride and groom visit Clarks Landing while you are searching for your venue and I can guarantee you’ll fall in love! Nicole, Don, and Kristin…. Thank you for making our day so unbelievably perfect!
Love, Alicia and Matt C. – Wedding November 22, 2014
After experiencing the best of the best for our own wedding (June 2012), there was no other venue but Clarks Landing for my parents 50th Wedding Anniversary. I called Nicole right away and after a few shrieks of excitement, we were off to the races to plan the perfect surprise party. From the food, to service, to just the overall kindness of the entire team, Clarks Landing shot it out of the ball park once again. Nicole was in cahoots with me to plan the perfect surprise as well, which meant the world to me. A combination of exponential knowledge and class, Don and Nicole take care of you the second you walk into their offices. You are more than just a client, you are a friend. The food was delicious and the venue gorgeous from top to bottom. Everything ran smoothly and all of our guests were happy, but most of all, my parents were so excited and grateful. If I could have every party of my life at Clarks, I would! Thank you to the entire team at Clarks Landing for pulling off the surprise and (50th!) wedding of the year!
Diane K. – Event November 22, 2014
Our Clarks Landing, Pt. Pleasant Beach, NJ wedding was beyond amazing! We simply cannot come up with the right words to express our appreciation, gratitude and joy! So, simply said, THANK YOU! In addition to that simple thank you, we would like to add some random adjectives that you can inject in any manner you wish: Perfect, Flawless, Magical, Heavenly, Heartfelt, Wonderful, Delicious, Seamless, Emotional, Incredible, Abundanza, Impeccable…dare I go on!
The outstanding and attentive service by the entire wait staff, made every guest feel special and important. Jessica and Grace, the names we know as ours, were delightful, but words of praise came from all of our guests. Every one showed attention to detail in every manner with aplomb and a smile!
Our search for a venue, led us to you, and ultimately, we looked to you, the professionals, to handle the details of something we do infrequently in our lives, host a wedding! You were an experienced, guiding hand, there to make sure everything would be perfect. You and your staff’s confidence and expertise ensured that our expectations were not only met but far exceeded in every dimension. You made us feel that ours was a unique and special affair.
From start to (sad) finish, you all made sure all of the details were polished. The day flew by! We have had the chance to laugh and cry and remember many of the wonderful moments over the weekend and it comes down to the same thing, it was a day that dreams are made of and where fairy tales begin. Thank you for everything you did to make it so.
Whenever we hold an event we will turn to the talented and caring team at Clarks Landing.
Sincerely and with warm regards,
Kathy and Than O. and family- Wedding November 14, 2014
My husband and I had our reception at Clarks Landing in Point Pleasant on November 8, 2014. We booked this venue about a year and half advance because after attending a wedding here once before, we knew this was going to be the place we would have our reception at some day! Everything here is phenomenal! From the minute you sit down in the office, you know you are going to be in great hands. My husband’s job caused us to relocate to California spur of the moment. I thought this is going to be crazy planning our wedding across the country! Nicole made it 100% easy for us. She was attentive by answering every email within just about hours and made us feel very comfortable that everything was going to be perfect and it truly was! The entire staff at Clarks Landing is AMAZING. Don and Judy were phenomenal. They constantly checked in with my parents and my husband and I. Grace who was our server for the evening was the sweetest girl and made sure always had food, water, a drink and most importantly that we were happy. It is the best feeling when the staff makes you all feel like family. Every single server had a smile on their face and that did not go unnoticed. I think just about every single guest came up to us and told us how great everyone who works there was and how amazing the food was. Some people couldn’t believe that there was more food after the cocktail hour or that there was a whole ballroom upstairs! The building itself is beautiful, but it’s the people who work there that make it unforgettable. Everything was just how we imagined it to be. We couldn’t have dreamed of a more perfect day. Thank you Clarks Landing for everything! We really appreciate everything everyone did! You guys are the best!!!
Tara & Jeremy Y. – Wedding November 8, 2014
I never normally write reviews but in the instance I had too. How do you even formulate in words how wonderful Clark’s Landing is and how the staff is. Let me just tell you its hard because words don’t really do justice or reviews on how spectacular the service, atmosphere, food, and staff really is. First off Don and Nicole treat you like a goddess and take care of every need you have. They stay with you and actually care about you on a different level than anyone I have ever experienced with anywhere else. You can tell they want your day there to be even better than you have ever dreamed of. They even helped me bustle my dress and curl my hair to make sure I looked amazing. Where do you find people to actually care about you on that level? You even have private servers taking care of you the whole night and attend to your every need. Weddings are stressful enough but there you don’t even have to have a worry. They were like family to me and I felt so comfortable. I wasn’t sure how my wedding would turn out because I wasn’t really into the whole bride thing but i was surprised at how they made me enjoy every minute. The food was out of this world amazing and my family and friends still cannot stop talking about it and kept saying “First Class”. They said best wedding ever! You know what I felt like it was and that’s exactly what you will get with Clark’s Landing is the best wedding ever! I will never forget the service and staff and mainly how wonderful and special they were to me.
Taylor & Rob T. – Wedding November 7, 2014
Clarks Landing was the first venue that I looked at. I had planned to spend the day looking at several venues on my list. After discussing pricing and packages with Nicole, I went to 2 of the other venues on my list. There was no contest. We called Nicole back a few hours later and ended up back at Clarks the very same day to sign paperwork. I had both my ceremony and reception at Clarks on November 2, 2014.
I cannot say enough about Don, Nicole, Judy, and the entire staff at Clarks Landing. I never once worried about the setup or behind-the-scenes of my ceremony or reception, in the entire year leading up to the wedding. This is because Clarks has perfected the science of wedding service. They have seen it all. Everything you could think might be a concern, they have already considered it and taken care of it. The venue itself is built and designed based on the feedback from their staff whom have worked at or come from other venues. This means the sound system is perfect, the uplighting is awesome, the view is great, the kitchen is in the optimal position, there is even a secret viewing panel for the bride and groom to look down into the cocktail hour from the bridal suite. If you don’t believe me, wait until you start talking to your entertainment vendors – they will jump at the chance to play at Clarks!
But it’s not just the design of the building itself that makes Clarks so amazing. A big part of it is the staff. Their level of professionalism is 100% unparalleled in the industry. They will truly take any idea that you have in mind and make it a reality. I wanted a beautiful wedding, but I was not one of those people who had everything planned out to a T since my 13th birthday or something. Also, I have a very busy/demanding job, and there was absolutely no way I could have pulled this off without their help. Although Clarks is a hugely popular venue, and they have weddings there almost every weekend night and sometimes weeknights too, you will always feel like you are their ONLY priority and their only wedding. Every wedding at Clarks is personal – you will be getting an absolutely unique experience if you choose this venue, and you will feel cared about.
Clarks Landing is a family, and they invite all of their brides and grooms to join their family too! Just look at their Facebook page – they post “happy anniversary” posts almost every day for their former brides and grooms. A venue that remembers you and details of your wedding 4 years later?! Clarks even helped my mom pull off my surprise bridal shower by setting up a fake ‘menu finalizing meeting’ and best of all, they helped me to surprise my groom with a DVD speech from his brother in Egypt. Also, we had some dietary restrictions on our menu, and they created some special dishes for us just for our guests from Egypt. Which reminds me – the cocktail hour is AWESOME. SO much food, pretty much every different cuisine in the world! I wish we had more time to spend in our cocktail hour. 🙂
My guests have not stopped talking about our wedding. At first, I thought my family was just being nice saying that it was the best wedding they’ve ever been to, but then my mom started receiving thank you notes from our non-family guests about how beautiful and amazing the wedding was. I mean, the guests are thanking US, instead of the other way around! Our wedding day was beyond anything we could have ever dreamed up thanks to Clarks!

Melissa & David G. – Wedding November 1, 2014
Clarks Landing was the first venue I visited upon my venture of finding a place to book my wedding. At first glance, my breath was taking away. ABSOLUTELY STUNNING! From the large amazing cocktail hour room, to the exquisite ballroom, every detail in Clarks Landing will make your wedding PERFECT!
From the very beginning when I met with Nicole, she is the most friendliest, warm hearted, and patient person to work with. SIMPLY AMAZING! She was available anytime I needed her and she answered any questions I had. She was so accommodating the week before the wedding when we had to make a few changes to the guest list.
Leading up to the wedding and the day of, Don made sure it was up to PERFECTION! He is wonderful to work with and made sure everything was just the way we wanted, a DREAM COME TRUE!
Our guest were BLOWN AWAY by the food, view, service, EVERYTHING! The wait staff was AMAZING too! As I took in everything a few times throughout the evening, I observed how things were being run. During dinner, it looked like I was watching synchronized swimmers. They are all trained so well and professional.
I enjoyed every minute of my wedding. My husband and I talk about our wedding everyday and how much we miss it! Our guests still rave about the elegance of the night and the delicious food they encountered. Many have shared it was THE BEST WEDDING THEY’VE BEEN TO.
I thank Nicole and Don for making my wedding become a dream come true that I always had as a little girl. If you’re looking for the perfect venue by the shore then look no further, this is the place you want to be. This was the best day of my life and I’ll always remember it!
Maria & George V. – Wedding October 26, 2014
We chose Clarks Landing as our venue for our fall wedding only a few weeks after we got engaged and it was one of the best decisions we made during our wedding planning process. From the very beginning Kristin was awesome. She was easy going, understanding, accommodating and always happy to help. As the wedding date got closer we had a few changes that needed to be made to our guest list and tables, everyone at Clarks was more than understanding and helpful. Kristin helped us through each step of the way, Nicole even fielded a few of my stressed phone calls and of course Don and Judy made sure that every detail was set out exactly how I envisioned it. On the day of our wedding Don made sure that everything went smoothly, and it did! We had the most amazing day, the weather was perfect, our ceremony site (we used the outdoor deck) was set up exactly as I pictured it, our extended cocktail hour was the talk of the night and our reception was an all out dance party enhanced my Clarks built in lighting system. The food and cocktails were outstanding the service was impeccable. We have received so many compliments about our wedding and of course my husband and I had the best day of our lives! Not one thing was out of place, no details left behind, if you are searching for perfection, look no further, Clarks Landing really knows how to host a wedding and make sure that the bride, groom and their families enjoy every moment of the day!
Kaitlyn & Adam L. – Wedding October 24, 2014
We could not have picked a more amazing venue for our special day. We have lost count of the amount of people that have told us this was the best wedding they have been to in a very long time. If we could do this day over again I would do it in exactly the same place. Now We just hope we get invited to a wedding there so we get to enjoy it all over again.
Natalia & Peter L. – Wedding October 19, 2014
Well things are finally settling down and the emotions of the day are now a wonderful memory. Kristin, where should I start? Clarks Landing made our daughter’s dream come true. I am getting chills and tears as I sit to write this. You, Don and Judy truly love your work and it shows. From the time our shuttle arrived to the time we were on our way out the door and your staff was asking if we would like a sandwich or zepoli’s no one could have done more!!!!
Stefanie took the news of an indoor wedding very well, but as those doors opened and she stepped out to walk down the aisle with her father I thought this could not be more perfect. It was a moment I will never forget. All of our recommended vendors could not have been more great and as for Gerda and Matteo what can I say. My mom told me later that Gerda was actually on her hands and knees fixing all the rose petals back into lines before the procession started.
We have received compliment upon compliment on the venue, the food, the staff and Clarks Landing. Compliments like, “It was the best wedding we have been to”, ” ,”I could not believe how great the wait staff was, they were wonderful”, “the beauty of this venue is only exceeded by its staff”, “This wedding was better than the wedding we attended at the Four Seasons in Philadelphia”. I could go on and on.
We wanted our guests to leave with a feeling of being treated as special as if they were the bride and groom and you delivered. The food was delicious, the wait staff were incredible and Don had a smile on his face all evening which let me know without saying a word that all was well.
Nothing was too much trouble for you and your co-workers. I was amazed as I walked into the bridal suite and saw you and Don bustling Stefanie’s dress. I have to tell you I was having panic attacks about that job. Judy was always there asking if everything was okay.
Kristin I could go on and on but I will close with this. Clarks Landing is what dreams are made of. Your attention to detail is incredible. WE could not have been happier with our choice and my only regret is that I only have 1 daughter. Perhaps we will get back to Clarks Landing as a guest at another wedding, I wish you all continued success in your future endeavors. I hope this letter conveyed my true thanks for all that you did for us.
Please pass this letter on to Don and Judy so I can thank them as well. You are a well oiled machine!!!!! Clarks Landing makes your dreams come true!!!!!!!
Have great day
Kathy & Bill K. – Parents of the Bride October 11, 2014
When we first began the process to search for a reception venue, I saw all the reviews for Clarks Landing and I thought to myself “How good could this place really be? Is it really THAT incredible?” After having our wedding there, I can 100% say it truly, genuinely was that great. The entire process – from the moment we got a tour of the venue to the moment we left the reception as a married couple, Clarks was absolutely perfect. The number of people who told us it was “the best wedding they’ve ever been to” was astounding. The maitre d’s Nicole and Don were basically like our wedding planners. They organized all of our vendors, staying on top of them to make sure everything went smoothly. They answered any and all of our questions, and accommodated every single request we had. Literally there was not one thing they said no to. On the day of the wedding, Judy and our personal server Grace were like wedding coordinators that made sure everything went off without a hitch. The cocktail hour is simply incredible. I could have stayed down there the whole night. Every type of hors d’oeuvre you could want. Custom cocktails were served by the bartenders. The view of the docks out the windows spanning the entire length of the room were spectacular. The ballroom was even nicer. Picture perfect tables, plenty of space, and a HUGE dance floor that lit up with the sunset as the reception began. The food was delicious and never-ending. They offered seconds to anybody who wanted more, and the desserts were to die for. All in all, there is not a SINGLE thing I would change about Clarks. All of the effort and attention to detail you put into wedding planning is matched ten fold by Clarks Landing, which is really all you can ask for. They treated us like we were their most important wedding ever. They cant be beat.
Caitlin & Kevin C. – Wedding October 4, 2014
My husband and I were married here on 9/28/14 and we couldn’t have asked for a better place to start our lives together. From the first time we walked in Kristin made us feel at home and helped with every request, stress and question we had. She helped us through the whole process and answered every e-mail as soon as possible. Kristin was always cheerful and made our lives so much easier. Don and Judy were fantastic day of coordinators and made sure that we and all the guests were well taken care of. Our personal attendant Carolyn was amazing and made sure that we were taken care of all night and never needed anything.
Clarks Landing is the perfect place for a wedding the venue is beautiful, the white glove service is amazing and the food is perfect. We, along with my parents, have gotten so many compliments about how it was the best wedding they have been to. They loved how all our little details were seamlessly incorporated into the ceremony and reception. Our guests loved the food and the amazing views. No one wanted to leave at the end of the night.
We can’t wait for someone we know to get married there so we can experience it all again. Thank you so much Clarks Landing especially, Kristin, Don, Judy and Carolyn, for making our wedding perfect. I can’t wait to plan for our 10 year anniversary there 🙂
Maria and Steve G. – Wedding September 28, 2014
Being parents of the bride we imagined from when she was a little girl what we hoped her wedding would be like…magical. She always wanted that fairy tale wedding . Well Clarks Landing did that for us! The beautiful venue itself both inside and outside provide views that are just breathtaking. The service you receive from the entire staff is impeccable!! The food is 5 star cuisine and abundant!! It is evident of how much time and effort is put into each and every wedding ensuring each one is perfect. We cannot thank you enough Don and Kristin and the entire staff for making our daughter’s wedding such a magical day!!!
Deb and Bill C. Parents of the Bride – Wedding September 20, 2014
Don, Nicole, Judy and the rest of the amazing staff at Clarks Landing made our wedding day the best day of our lives. Everything was amazing! It truly was everything we could have ever wanted and more. From the moment we walked through their doors for our first appointment it just felt right. ..they made my husband and I feel like family, that no matter what was going on, we were the most important thing at that moment. We are eternally grateful for everything that they have done. Look no further this is truly the place to have the wedding people will be talking about for years to come and memories to be made that could not happen anywhere else.
Katie & Mike B. – Wedding September 14, 2014
Dear Clarks Landing,
Clarks Landing was always a very special place to my family as my grandfather docked his boat there for several years before he passed away. We shared so many happy memories at Clarks Landing as a family whether we were on boat rides or at the annual picnics. When I discovered that Clarks Landing built a venue I knew we had to visit and from the first time I stepped foot into the ballroom, I knew immediately this was the venue our wedding should be celebrated at overlooking the docks and the Manasquan River and a chance for us to continue our happy memories in the same place.
From day one, Nicole was the kindest, most selfless and helpful coordinator I could have ever asked for and will be forever grateful to have met her. Any question I had, big or small, she immediately responded and always had an answer or even better idea! She always took the time to talk if we stopped in and never made it seem like she was in a rush to wrap up or get on with her day. Also, Don who received a great amount of praise not only from his staff but from our vendors that he was “the guy” leading up to our big day, by far exceeded our expectations. Throughout the whole process, he was so incredibly patient, knowledgeable and kind to us and whether behind the scenes or helping me fix my train the day of our wedding, he was constantly working to make our day run smoothly without any glitches.
When I arrived to Clarks Landing on our wedding day, Don and Nicole were both dressed in purple for our wedding color and that is just one of many examples how they continued to make me feel so special. We were there for a great deal of time and throughout it all Don and Nicole were so calm and accommodating not only to myself and Kevin but to the whole bridal party and vendors. We were also blessed to have Judy and Carolyn who again surpassed any expectations we had walking in the door that day. Everyone keeps raving about how beautiful the venue is, the fantastic food during both the cocktail hour and reception, and the fabulous wait staff that were with us the entire night. Not to mention, the dance moves the wait staff showed off were a great treat to our guests! I can never give enough praise and thanks for giving us the fairytale wedding I always dreamt of and way more! When people asked me a few days before the wedding why I was so calm, I told them I handed everything over to Clarks Landing and I without a doubt have all the confidence in the world that they will give us a flawless day…and they did!
I am so sad our wedding is over but will be forever grateful to have celebrated our day at Clarks Landing and to have had the opportunity to work with both Don and Nicole. They are truly the best in the business.
Petrina and Kevin B. – Wedding September 12, 2014
Clarks Landing was absolutely amazing! The venue is spectacular and the service is outstanding. Don, Kristin and Judy were wonderful and were there every step of the way. Everyone commented on how beautiful the venue was, the quantity and how delicious the food was and the overall superb service. Thank you everyone at Clarks for making our wedding day so special!
Lisa & Eric N. – Wedding September 7, 2014
Clarks Landing made our dream wedding a reality!!! From our initial site visit Nicole was tremendous to work with, and was one of the biggest reasons that we had such a perfect wedding day. The ceremony was orchestrated perfectly and was gorgeous with the river behind us. The sun peaked out from the clouds just as we were saying our vows, and provided a beautiful landscape for our ceremony. The cocktail hour was over the top, delicious, and unbelievable (or so we have been told by every single guest we spoke to, since we didn’t get to take advantage of nearly as much as we wanted to as the bride and groom!). Finally, the reception was one of the most beautiful rooms we have ever seen, the food was tremendous, and the sky was just perfect. Don did an AMAZING job directing the entire day and night, along with Nicole and the staff, who could not have been more professional and attentive, and treated every guest as if they were the bride and groom. What more can we say…? Clarks Landing was a beautiful venue, with top notch service, 4 star restaurant quality food, and was the absolute best wedding venue we could have ever asked for. If we could give them 6 stars, we would… might even give them 7! Anyone getting married in New Jersey, especially the shore area, should look no further than Clarks Landing!!!
Carolyn & Jonathan C. – Wedding August 30, 2014
Mike and I get married on Friday August 29, 2014. We had our ceremony at our church, and then headed to Clarks landing for our reception. From the day I called Nicole to set up a tour I was treated like a friend. Any and every time I needed her she was there for me. Our wedding planning was a little difficult since we live in Florida, and our parents live in NJ. Nicole worked with my mom (even when my mom would call Nicole 5 minutes before she was going to show up unannounced lol). Being an indecisive bride, Nicole and Don both dealt with my mind changing like it was no big deal. They are true professionals, and can work through anything (even getting us our octopus ice sculpture!).
Our wedding day!! We had our own personal waitress, Caroline. She was awesome! At one point when I had to take a break from dancing I told her that Mike was really sweaty and hot, 2 minutes later Caroline came back with ice cold hand towels for him! Our glasses were never empty, and plates always being filled (even though we were too busy dancing to eat). They even gave us a doggy bag since they knew we didn’t get to eat a lot.
If I had to go back and do it all again, I would not change a thing! I highly, highly, highly recommend Clarks Landing. Though a little on the higher end of budgets, it is totally worth it. The service, attention to detail, and professionalism of all the staff especially Nicole and Don was outstanding. Bravo!
Our guests are still talking about how amazing the wedding was !
Kristen & Mike M. – Wedding August 29, 2014
Unlike most brides, the thought of putting together my wedding was more terrifying and nerve-racking than exciting. All I knew going into this, was that I was marrying the man of my dreams. That’s all. I knew nothing about planning an event. It all seemed like a feat that would have been too much for me to achieve. However, through a friend, I heard of Clarks Landing. I went online to look at their pictures, and I was quite impressed. I told my (then) fiancé, that I really wanted to just have a look at the venue. I called, and spoke to Nicole to set up an appointment, and my first impression was “Wow, she seems genuinely excited to meet us!”, and I was very happy to get that feeling from her, since talking to everyone else was such a drag when I called other venues for information. I had a feeling, just from that conversation, that this place was going to be different. When we finally got to Clarks Landing for our first visit, I was initially blown away with the serene beauty of the venue. The view was spectacular; the set-up was super impressive. I sometimes struggle with having that “vision” that people have when they walk into a space, but that wasn’t the case here. I could see it, and I could feel it. I knew right away that I REALLY wanted to get married here. Each room that Nicole brought us into was more impressive than the last. The very best part of the tour was learning about all of the INCLUDED features — the decor, centerpieces, china, menu options…. It helped us especially since we planned our wedding in such a short period of time (38 Days, which we learned is a record at Clarks Landing), and did not have the time to make too many additional choices as far as “dressing the place up”. With this venue, there was not one thing we felt that we needed to add. We really needed a place that did a lot of the work for us. It felt as if all we needed to do was show up on the day of our wedding. Needless to say our decision was made on our first visit! Throughout the planning process, Nicole was there every step of the way. There was no need for an outside wedding planner. She was quick to answer any and every question I had for her, and was more than pleasant and friendly each and every time we spoke. Every bride needs a Nicole! And Don was a dream to work with as well! He is very thorough, and also eager to answer any questions. Fast forward to our wedding day – I couldn’t have asked for a better team of people to make our day the dream that it was. Every single guest RAVED about not only how beautiful the place was, but also how exceptional the service was, and how incredible the food quality and quantity was! I went from not knowing anything at all about putting an event together, to in just 38 days, having a wedding that every guest said was the best they had ever been to. It is unreal. I could not have done it without Nicole, Don, Judy and Carolyn. I would recommend this venue to anyone. The price, service, quality, and attention to detail…. everything about this place is what makes it Central Jersey’s premiere wedding venue. I am so happy and thankful that we booked our wedding here. I can’t stop looking at our pictures!
Nicole & Shawn K. – Wedding August 28, 2014
AMAZING! Everyone walked out of my wedding saying it was the best wedding they have ever been too. I am so upset I didn’t get to try all the food at cocktail hour because our guests have been raving about how great the food was. Kristin, Don, and all the other employees truly made it the wedding of our dreams! Everything went smoothly and there was not one bump in the road. I appreciate everything they did. If you want a beautiful wedding and great service, Clarks is for you!
Kristin & Jeremy B. – Wedding August 24, 2014
My husband Mark and I got married at Clarks Landing at the end of August and we truly could not have asked for a better venue to get married at! We had looked at several places before visiting Clarks Landing and the minute we met Nicole, we knew CL was it! Her passion and love for weddings made us even more excited than we already were. We had another visit to a venue planned for that day and did not even make it to that appointment because we booked Clark’s on the spot! From that moment on, Nicole, Don, Kristin and the entire CL team, made us feel like we were the only couple they had getting married there. They made sure we felt like king and queen for a day, from making sure our favorite wines were served, my glass was never empty, to Don bustling my dress like a pro to Kristin talking me off the ledge about seating issues, Clark’s Landing and the entire staff are the best of the best. I cannot imagine getting married anywhere else and would love to be get married there every year! I would recommend every Bride and Groom checkout Clark’s Landing as a potential venue and I can guarantee you’ll fall in love with it as much as we did. From the bottom of our hearts; Thank you, Thank you, Thank you Don, Nicole, and Kristin!
Brooke and Mark K. – Wedding August 22, 2014
It’s hard to believe that we ever considered another location for our wedding. It was fate that we would end up at Clarks, and we are sure that no group of people would be able to replicate the perfect day that was put on for us by the great employees at Clarks. The views on the location were stunning and the venue was perfect. We had a wedding that fit with comfort and most spent the night on the dance floor. The obvious views aside, guests raved all night about the service, the food (the fact that they could order seconds!), the space, and much more. Don and Kristin went above and beyond to make everything for our day run perfectly. Kristin helped us plan from day one. Don is quite literally the most experienced and helpful person the wedding industry has ever seen. Finally, our waitress for the night, Carolyn, was the most phenomenal help we could’ve asked for. She had everything we wanted before we’d even ask and was a pleasure to have with us all night.
Thank you all for making our day one that will never be forgotten!
Jenna and Mark C. – Wedding August 3, 2014
When my now husband and I first walked up to Clarks Landing, we were just going for a look without being ready to commit to anything. After seeing the venue and talking with Nicole, however, we left knowing that Clark’s was absolutely the venue for us. The first thing that struck us was the stunning view from the cocktail and ball room, and the more we saw the more we loved. Nicole won us over from the start and continued to be such a joy to work with! You seriously cannot be in better hands! The love and attention Nicole and Don put into (literally) every detail is incredible! From the food (amazing) to decor to the blinds being lifted at the exact moment during the ceremony, not a beat was missed. Our wedding was the magical evening that we hoped for and we have the wonderful people at Clark’s Landing Yacht Club to thank!
Shanna & David H. – Wedding August 2, 2014
My husband and I visited a couple reception venues when deciding where to have our wedding, but none of them could even come close to Clarks Landing. The views are amazing, the ballroom and cocktail hour room are beyond beautiful, and the extensive menu could easily sell anyone to have their wedding there. But the biggest deciding factor in our choice was meeting Nicole. She is honestly the most dedicated and caring person and gets so excited describing every detail about having a wedding there. When we went to visit another venue location their wedding coordinator did nothing to impress us about their venue and actually made us feel like we were bothering her. So meeting Nicole put me at ease knowing that she and the rest of the staff at Clarks would make sure every detail of our special day would be perfect. Every step of the way she helped with any question or idea that come up. I had mentioned a special beer that my family in Ireland really loved to drink and they made sure to have it in stock!
The day of our wedding was beyond perfect. The food was amazing and everything went off without a hitch. Don was so great in helping all of our guests with any want or need! Our server Carolyn was so accommodating to us. At cocktail hour she prepared us our own huge plates of food and even had the chefs prepare me pizza the way I wanted it! The only complaint we had about the whole night was that it went by too quickly!
Still to this day we are getting compliments about how amazing our wedding was. We got told by so many people that it was the best wedding they have ever attended and wish they could go to a wedding there every weekend! We too hope we are lucky enough to attend a wedding there and get to enjoy it as much as our guests.
I highly recommend Clark’s Landing to anyone considering having their wedding there. They will not be let down and will make your wedding day the greatest day of your life!
Amelia & John K. – Wedding August 1, 2014
Over 3 years ago, I went to look at Clarks Landing for my best friend’s wedding reception and myself ( not engaged at the time ) absolutely fell in LOVE with everything Clarks had to offer and thought to myself ” I HAVE TO GET MARRIED HERE SOME DAY!”
My fiance knew how much I loved Clark’s, and he did too after experiencing a wedding there as guests the next year after I first fell in love, that he decided to book the venue, date and all with out me even knowing before we got engaged! Kristin helped him out so much, and it is with many thanks to her she even let the groom do such a thing with out the bride’s approval haha! Kristin and Don helped him set up his proposal to me there late April of last year, and I could not thank them enough for helping him plan such a special day! Since then, Don and Kristin have always been a pleasure to work with, any questions I had, they answered with no problem! They also helped recommend photographers, invitation artists, limo companies that exceeded out expectations as well, we could not have asked for a better experience! I knew our wedding was in great hands, but couldn’t imagine how amazing the night would actually turn out. So July 25th 2014 came and I can honestly say it was the BEST day of my life! Don, Kristin, and Carolyn were phenomenal. The food, service, and ambiance of the whole night was just incredible. I would love to recreate that night over and over, but I know I do not have to, because everything was PERFECT! The staff goes completely out of their way to help you in anyway, we felt like we were royalty all night! Our guests still rave about EVERYTHING Clarks has to offer, as a venue, they do not miss a beat, everything and anything you can dream of- they deliver! Thank you SO much for making our wedding day the best day of our lives that we will truly never forget! Absolutely LOVE Clarks Landing and cannot wait to go to another wedding there ( hopefully soon!!! )
Lisa and Pasquale C. – Wedding July 25, 2014
Absolutely amazing and nothing short of that!! We had our wedding at Clarks Landing Yacht Club on July 20th 2014 and it was everything I could have dreamed of a wedding to be! Clarks was very accommodating after we ran into an issue with a previous venue we booked, and they went above and beyond to make sure everything else was as stress free as possible! Don, Nicole, and Judy were beyond amazing even with the bazillion requests I had. Everyone had a blast and the food was without a doubt some of the best food I have ever tasted. Love everyone there!! again Thank you for everything you guys did for us <3
Nicole & Wayne V. – Wedding July 20, 2014
We had our wedding at Clarks Landing Yacht Club on July 19th and it was ABSOLUTELY PERFECT. During the planning process, a lot of people told me how fast the day would go by and that I would barely remember a thing. This was not true at all… my husband and I felt like we were GUESTS at our own wedding because of how AMAZING the staff was. The day and night went off without a hitch, and while it did go by fast, we remember everything and would do it all over again… EXACTLY the same way.
Nicole and Don are top notch. Their professionalism and love for their clients was shown on the very first day we met them (and we now consider them to be good friends of ours). I knew I had to have my wedding at Clarks. Nicole has such an eye for detail and truly enjoys helping her brides in any way possible. We joked around that she was like a bridesmaid because she was 100% involved in my planning process, with daily emails and guiding me through any questions, concerns, or ideas I needed to make my Nautical (and bling) wedding a dream. No detail went unnoticed and I still have friends asking me where I found the time to pay such close attention to every little aspect of the day and décor… I always replied that if it weren’t for Nicole, none of this would have been possible.
Don and Nicole arranged my bridal party entrances, as well as my entrance coming in on a speedboat, without flaw. I can go on forever about how amazing Clark’s Landing is… the food, the service, my signature drinks, the ice sculpture martini luge, and a cocktail hour that still has people talking. It was absolutely a night to remember, with all of my family and friends, and I am so honored to now call Don, Nicole, and the staff of Clark’s our friends as well.
Erin & Greg C. – Wedding July, 19, 2014
Celebrating our wedding at Clarks Landing Yacht Club was an unforgettable experience, to say the least! From the first time we met with Kristin and took a tour, we left there knowing we’d be back. The level of service, dedication and commitment to detail were the perfect match for the beauty and class of Clarks Landing, making every moment a picture-perfect memory. Kristin was always available to help with any questions we had from day one, and Don was a thrill to work with as our big day neared. We received so many compliments from our wedding guests throughout the evening and for weeks following, raving about how absolutely perfect everything was. And of course, the grand finale when the staff joined us on the dance floor was incredible!
We cannot thank the entire staff at Clarks Landing enough for making our wedding day a dream come true. Knowing that every little detail was taken care of gave us both the chance to sit back and truly enjoy our celebration – one of the best gifts we could have ever received!
Lauren and Michael D. – Wedding July 12, 2014
Clarks Landing is an absolutely breathtaking venue that not only has an amazing staff but also the most delicious food. Our wedding was truly a dream come true thanks to the Clark’s staff for dealing with my craziness. I brought in my own sweetheart table and they didn’t even blink an eye. All of my details were set up perfectly, I didn’t have to worry at all. I was so worried that my large wedding would not fit nicely in the room and somehow they made it feel like we had all the space in the world. They have a phenomenal team who are willing to do anything for you on your wedding day. I was married in July and 3 months later people are still talking about how amazing the wedding was. Thank you Clark’s for making my wedding the best night of my life and a day that everyone will remember. It was worth every single penny.
Elizabeth and Robert D. – Wedding July 5, 2014
Clarks Landing was the first venue we visited and we knew we had to have our wedding there the minute we walked into the ballroom and my mom started crying! We didn’t even have to look any further. After obsessively looking at pictures of other weddings at Clarks Landing online, I knew that my wedding would be wonderful. Well, that was an understatement!! The venue is just magical, from the out of this world cocktail hour to the gorgeous ballroom. The food was delicious and you have so many choices – during cocktail hour you basically get it all! It rained the morning of my wedding, but when I showed up, our coordinator Kristin had a curling iron in the bridal suite all ready so I could fix my hair! She was wonderful throughout the whole process. I cannot say enough good things about Clarks. Oh and the rain stopped just in time for us to get the Clarks Landing famous sunset pictures!!!
Nicole & Lou D. – Wedding July 4, 2014
Fate…that’s what I call it. From the minute I walked into Clarks Landing Yacht Club, I was blown away with the building and all of its incredible amenities. Until you are there, you cannot begin to fathom the level of details that have been incorporated into making Clarks Landing the best. I knew it was meant to be when Don greeted us with a warm smile and friendly disposition.
June 28th was our wedding day and three weeks later, our family and friends are still raving that it was the best wedding they have ever attended, and they mean it!
What can be better than spending such a happy occasion with everyone that you love? Believe me, the love did not stop with family and friends. It was apparent that Don and his staff share a love for their clients and are so passionate about creating perfection. They make sure that your special day will forever be the happiest day of your life.
Jamie & Anthony P. – Wedding June 28, 2014
I want to give a special thanks to Kristin who walked us through the in’s and out’s of our wedding planning. She answered all of our questions and made us feel so comfortable. She is a very special person and we wouldn’t have been able to accomplish everything without her. Another special thank you to Don who orchestrated our wedding day with such ease and grace. He is a true professional and we were lucky to have him be at our side. Thank you Don for making our wedding so perfect. Another thank you to Judy – you are such a wonderful & kind person. You helped make our wedding so special and I was so happy that you were there to open the doors when you introduced us for the first time as “Mr & Mrs Pace”! I will never forget that moment and certainly will never forget you. Another special thank you to Carolyn…you truly are one of the sweetest individuals I’ve ever encountered. Both Rick and I can’t stop talking about how great you are! You were so attentive and willing to help us with anything the night of our wedding…you are the best & I’ll never forget you! To the staff – utterly amazing. I think about you all & it puts a smile on my face. We will never forget you all & please know that you truly made our wedding day so magical. It was everything we hoped for & MORE! We can’t ever begin to thank you enough.

Lauren & Joseph D. – Wedding May 18, 2014
Clarks Landing is the absolute best wedding venue! We got married there on May 16, 2014 and we can’t thank them enough for everything they did to make our wedding day perfect! We had the most amazing time and everyone is still talking about it. So many people said it was hands down the best wedding they have ever been to! From the moment we walked into Clarks Landing and met the wonderful Nicole, we knew we had to have our wedding there! Nicole is very passionate about what she does and is an absolute joy to work with. She was very attentive and helpful during the planning process and is extremely knowledgeable. On the day of the wedding; the food, service, and staff were amazing, along with the wonderful Don and Judy. They go above and beyond to make sure that everything is perfect. It truly was the best day of our lives. Thank you Clarks Landing for making our dreams come true! We highly recommend them to all couples!
Alyssa & Jason N. – Wedding May 16, 2014
This is the ultimate venue at the Jersey Shore – nothing tops it! The service was impeccable, the food was delicious, the venue itself looks brand new and has a CLASSY, elegant style. I love that only 1 event takes place at a time, so you feel very special. Don and Kristin took care of me from booking the venue to the end the reception. It was perfect.
Reviewed on May 15, 2014
We started looking for a wedding venue 17 months before our wedding. We knew we wanted a place on the water in Monmouth County. We looked at 2 places (both of which were OK) and for our 3rd place we saw Clarks Landing Yacht Club and had to look no further. The venue took our breath away!!! On top of this Nicole and Don’s enthusiasm and helpfulness made us realize we were in the best hand’s possible for one of the most important days of our lives.
During the months leading up to the wedding, Nicole and Don could not have been more helpful. They provided creative suggestions, answered any questions immediately, and always eased any concerns I may have had. With their help a wedding planner was not necessary to ensure a flawless wedding reception.
The day of the wedding, everything was perfect!! When we arrived at the venue everything was placed exactly where we requested (flip flop baskets, our parents wedding photos, our personal DVD, personalized cocktail napkins, etc.,). Additionally, Clarks provides an ice sculpture during cocktail hour and they made the most perfect logo for our College where my husband and I met. One of our groomsmen lost a button on his jacket prior to introductions, and Nicole was sewing it back on before I even knew it had fallen off! My husband and I had our own personal waitress who ensured we ate and had what we needed at all times. We utilized the list of vendors (DJ, Florist, Photographer, Invitation Vendor) recommended by Clarks Landing. I HIGHLY recommend you do this, because these vendors are trusted by Clarks and it shows. The evening was flawless and I know utilizing their trusted vendors helped ensure this success. Our friends and family raved about the evening and we continue to hear compliments that the “wedding was amazing” and “this was the best wedding I’ve ever been to.” The wedding reception was FUN, beautiful, and personalized. My husband, family and I cannot thank Clarks Landing Yacht Club enough for making our wedding day more special than we could have ever imagined. We love Clarks Landing and highly recommend it to any Bride and Groom!!
Stephanie & Jeremy K. – Wedding May 10, 2014
Dear Don and Nicole,
Again, we want to thank you both for your tireless efforts in making Stephanie and Jeremy’s wedding day AMAZING!
You know, when God blesses you with a little girl, as a parent, as some point you do think of their wedding day. First, you pray they meet and fall in love with an amazing man to build a life and family with. Naturally, we all pray for good health. But when life happens, we hope that we can give our children the kind of day that we “all” just did.
Getting up at 6:30 a.m., starting with the hair, makeup and “special” breakfast casseroles. Getting the bride dressed in her dream wedding gown, taking amazing pictures and then boarding the “luxury” party bus for Cinderella to meet her Prince Charming. Then…Daddy walking her down the aisle into the arms of her love. Emotional, Peaceful and Loving feelings as we watch our little girl become a wife.
Thank you again for all your attention to details. (I love details…I think everyone bride and mother of the bride who chooses Clarks Landing for their special day loves details and for that they chose CLARKS LANDING.)
I’m sure you don’t get tired of hearing compliments but how can I stop when Steph’s Dad and I are feeling so much satisfaction on everything. Both of you and your staff ALWAYS greet your brides/grooms and families with a big smile. We thank you for being kind, thoughtful and attentive to us over this past year. We are proud to say we had Stephanie and Jeremy’s wedding reception at Clark’s Landing Yacht Club.
Big Hugs, Karin & Fred P. – Daughter’s Wedding May 10, 2014
Clarks Landing offers SUPREME service, AMAZING food and UNFORGETTABLE atmosphere. It was one of the only venues in the area that could accommodate the number of guests we invited – not only did we choose it for this reason but for the personal attention we received from our 1st visit. The venue itself is IMPECCABLE, the attention to detail at Clarks is something I didn’t see at the other 5 venues we visited. Kristin and Don catered to every request and detail from myself and my family. We are still getting compliments from our guests that it was the best wedding they’ve ever attended – not to mention it was the most and best food ever consumed at a wedding. We will be forever grateful to Clarks Landing and their dedicated staff for making our day so special.
Laura & David D. – Wedding May 9, 2014
I don’t even know where to begin when it comes to Clarks Landing Yacht Club. As a NYC event planner, it is extremely hard for me to give up control of my events that I host and especially my wedding which me and my husband paid for together. I am extremely organized and detail orientated and at times forgot that I wasn’t planning a corporate event and that I was actually planning my own wedding. Clarks landing is everything you dream about in a venue. From the moment you see the venue you are met with professionalism, excitement and detail up until the moment you walk out the doors on your wedding night. The staff will literally do ANYTHING for you and do it with a smile. The food is a 10 out of a 10 and its hard to believe that their sales pitch is actually 100% true and more (its really not a pitch- its all the real deal)!!! I didn’t have to think about anything on my wedding day besides dancing, eating and enjoying the day. You can trust them like you trust your family. They make you feel like you are the only couple they are working with and will do anything to make your guests feel the same. We had so many people tell us they never went to a wedding before where the staff was so committed and dedicated to making not only the bride and groom happy but also each and every guest in attendance. The view is spectacular, the food is amazing and abundant and the staff are incredible. If you are looking for a seamless, well organized, professional and elegant venue to make your dream wedding a reality…than look no further! A diamond in the ruff!
Christina & Christopher V. – May 4, 2014
When my husband and I first walked into Clarks Landing, we knew this was where we were going to have our wedding! No other venue even came close to what they offered. The place is beautiful, the food is delicious, and the staff is wonderful! From the beginning, Don and Nicole were great to work with- always so helpful and nice. They made everything so easy and took such great care of us from the moment we met them all through of big day. Having them working with us made our experience so enjoyable!
All of our guests raved about the amazing cocktail hour- most of them thought that was the main food for the wedding! And it just got better at the reception- not one miss on the courses! And all the guests loved the table side service (white glove service, superb presentation). I cannot say enough about how amazing Clark’s made our wedding. They gave us the wedding we always dreamed of, if not better! Highly, highly recommended!
Megan & Matt D. – Wedding May 3, 2014
From the cocktail hour to the final dance my daughter’s wedding at Clarks Landing was better than anything I could have imagined. It has been a month since the wedding and our family and friends are still talking about the “best” wedding they have ever gone to. The food and the staff were exceptional. Many of our guests commented on the professionalism of the staff and compared the service and food to the best 5-star restaurants. Don and Nicole made you feel that this wedding was as important to them as it was to the Bride and Groom.
The location, views and décor were amazing as was the cocktail hour. When it came to the liquid libations Clark Landing’s assortment was top shelf from the wine they served to the single malt scotches. I am not a big drinker but a number of our guests who were very knowledgeable about wine thought that the wine list was exceptional.
I can’t say enough good things about Clarks Landing. I only hope I get a chance to celebrate another wedding there!
Stephanie & John I. – Parents of the Bride May 3, 2014
I have no words for how incredible everyone was at Clarks landing and how perfect my wedding day was! From the minute I walked in I knew this is where I was going to get married, the ballroom literally took my breath away! I worked with Don in planning my wedding and since I loved Clarks so much I booked my wedding with just 7 months to plan because they are so popular that the following year was booked! I was nervous at first at how I would pull it all together in just a short amount of time but Don reassured me I could do it! Once I arrived to Clarks on my wedding day I didn’t have to worry about anything, everything was taken care of, they put out all of my decor that I brought over a few days before, along with my wedding gown, shoes, accessories and my bridesmaids things too! I felt as if the bridal suite was part of my home! We listened to music which streamed through the ceiling off our iPhones and were served appetizers and champagne! My personal waitress for the night was Deanna and she was amazing! She knew what I needed before I needed it! And at the end of the night she asked me how she did because it was her first time having a bride, I couldn’t believe this was her first time she was so great! Everything from the ceremony to the last dance went smoothly. I couldn’t have dreamed of anything better than what my wedding day was! And when people told me “be prepared for something to go wrong” nothing did! Everything was perfect! Thank you so much Judy and especially Don for making my wedding day so amazing! I can’t wait to go back to Clarks as a guest and experience what my guests experienced, because I can’t tell you how many of my guests have been raving about everything from the food and the cocktail hour to the view and the wonderful service! Someone actually referred to the waiters as the Disney crew, because that’s how friendly and accommodating they were! Thanks again to everyone who made my wedding the best night of my life!
Michelle & Jeff C. – Wedding April 27, 2014
Clarks Landing made all of our dreams come true and more. Because of Clarks Landing I honestly don’t think we could have even dreamed our wedding day to be as perfect and as magical as it was. We had started looking for venues in September and had literally gone to 10 different places. However, as soon as we walked into Clarks – WE JUST KNEW. We looked at each other with the same look in our eyes “This is it. This is where we’re going to get married.” The view is amazing, the reception hall is ABSOLUTELY breath taking, and the sunset on the water at Clark’s is unforgettable and out of this world. Shortly, after that, Kristin whipped out the SUNSET times for the next year or so and she literally HAD ME AT “i have sunset times for the next year or so.” The amount of food and after comparing apples to apples versus other vendors – we had no choice but to call Kristin back that very day and set our wedding date at Clarks Landing in Point Pleasant. From that point on, Kristin was there for us every step of the way. A few months later, we met Don and Judy. In general, I’m a people person but when it comes to Kristin, Don, Judy and the entire staff at Clarks, they treated us like family. I am getting emotional just writing this review because they helped us SO MUCH and in every way.They ensured all my creative ideas from Guest Book to Escort Card Table were executed flawlessly. They went above and beyond to ensure the vision we had for our wedding day stayed true to us. Being 100% Portuguese is tough, and pleasing 50% of your Portuguese guests with food is even tougher. Clarks met our needs to have Portuguese flare incorporated into cocktail hour and our reception and Don even looked for PORTUGUESE BEERS! INCREDIBLE! Our guests are still talking about how much food and HOW DELICIOUS the food was and how it was the best wedding they’ve ever been to!
Kristin, Don, Judy, Carolyn and the Clarks Family – you have stolen a piece of my heart. We love you guys – thank you.
Diana & Chris M. – Wedding April 19, 2014
This place was amazing.. I have heard nothing but absolutely fantastic things about my wedding… Don and Nicole were so wonderful… The service was the best I have seen.. I am so happy that this is the place our wedding took place!!!! I cannot say enough great things…. And all the little extra surprises are still being talked about…. LOVE IT!!!! Wish I could do it all over in slow motion!!!
Meghan & Gene A. – Wedding April 13, 2014
I am so happy to say I am a Clarks Landing Bride! The experience with Nicole and Don was spectacular! I have to say the while staff was amazing and worked with us on every level. Everyone was accommodating what we envisioned and made the day something we will remember forever!
Once we walked into Clarks last January we knew it was everything we imagined for our big day and all the expectations were met. I knew we picked the right place too when people seemed impressed with our venue every time I spoke about it. They did not disappoint!
One request I had, that Clarks delivered on and then some, was doing a mac and cheese bar. I have heard about mashed potato bars but I wanted to be different and mac and cheese is one of my comfort foods, I didn’t get to eat a lot of it during the cocktail hour but it was DELICIOUS!
Everyone should ask them to do it, the buffalo chicken one was spectacular, all of my guests were talking about it. My guests were also impressed with the amazing service that they offered there. I have family and friends who don’t usually enjoy weddings and some that are fairly reserved but every single person was raving about the day. The cocktail hour and ball rooms are both beautiful and the secret spy area is a great little tidbit for the bride and grooms!
Kaitlyn & Ryan C. – Wedding April 12, 2014
I just had my wedding on April 11th,2014…I couldn’t be more pleased with Clarks Landing and how excellent everything came together. Don was truly a pleasure to work with. He made sure everything was done beautifully and really knows what he is doing! I appreciated all his suggestions and you can tell how much he loves what he does. I fell in love with Clarks when I first visited it and nothing compared, it is absolutely beautiful (inside and out). The food was excellent and the service is unbelievable. I have heard nothing but compliments from my guests. The entire staff of Clarks are extremely amazing, my husband, parents and I are so happy with all the hard work they did on our special day. We couldn’t be more thankful! I definitely recommend Clarks for any brides wedding, it is truly worth it!
Amanda & Matt L. – Wedding, April 11, 2014
Don, Kristin, and Judy were so amazing for us at our wedding. Making sure everything was running on time, everyone was where they had to be, and we were taken care, not a beat was missed by these three. In the months leading up to the big day, Kristin was always readily available to answer any and all questions that we had. Don was fantastic at coordinating everything day of and helped everything flow seamlessly. Judy made sure everything we brought that had to be set up was where it needed to be. Clarks Landing was such a beautiful venue to have our wedding. The reception hall was gorgeous, the cocktail hour was classy, and last but not least, the food was absolutely delicious. The smartest decision we made during our entire wedding process was choosing to have it at Clarks Landing.
Casey & Justin L. – Wedding March 30, 2014
I am finally getting a chance to write this review because I have been inundated with phone calls from guests about how amazing our wedding was at Clarks Landing. We met with Don for a tour of the venue and from the moment we got there it exceeded our expectations. My mother is a bit of a perfectionist and Don put her at ease explaining each plan and detail for their weddings. He assisted us with planning with vendors once we booked and was always available to answer a call about even the smallest detail. Let me tell you no matter how much you plan the day of your wedding is crazy and I did not have to worry about one single detail at Clarks. They executed it exactly the way I wanted it from start to finish without missing a beat. Our guests have not stopped calling about “THE BEST WEDDING EVER” and “THE MOST AMAZING FOOD AND SERVICE” they have ever had at a wedding. Thank you Don and Judy from the bottom of our hearts! We wish we could do it all over again!!
Meg & Matthew L. – Wedding March 28, 2014
I can’t say enough to show how impressed I, my husband, family, friends, and guests were with Clarks Landing. I truly feel as though the entire day was a blur and I was so busy greeting guests and catching up with fiends that I barely remember the day. But I am thankful that while I was occupied with the events of the day that my guests were treated so amazingly well and given an unforgettable experience.
I have heard from so many of our guests just in this week since the wedding that the food, drinks, service, atmosphere and general experience of attending a wedding at Clarks was some of the best they had EVER experienced. I worried for the two years of planning that our guests would not enjoy themselves and that our wedding would be a “dud,” but I think with Clarks that would have been impossible!
I am so thankful that on the day of the wedding I did not have to worry about anything at Clarks – Kristin, Don, Judy and Carolyn (our personal server) took care of everything for us! I would recommend Clarks Landing to anyone for any event!
If I could give any brides advice – for Clarks or anywhere else – take the time to enjoy it! I missed most of my cocktail hour and spent most of the reception visiting tables – just enjoy the day and let your guests come to you! Best wishes to all of the brides out there!
Jennifer & Owen Z. – Wedding March 21, 2014
I’m not sure there are enough words to describe the absolute perfection Clarks Landing provided us with on our wedding day! From our initial meeting with Kristin Chironna right down to saying goodbye to Don at the end of our night, everything was exactly what I could have ever dreamed of and more! Kristin helped with all our vendors and every single one came right off Clarks vendor list, and were all just as amazing and professional as Clarks. All of our guest have been talking about our wedding for the 3 months and cant stop. I love it!! The amount of detail and excellence is overflowing. I will be recommending Clarks landing for many years to come. First class all the way! And another big Thank you to everyone there for making our special day, that was 16 years in the making, one of the most amazing days of our lives!!
Robert & Kevin – Wedding March 8, 2014
My husband and I just recently got married here at Clarks Landing. We visited 13 different venues in one day and this place was the second one we saw. We immediately fell in love and no other place could even come close to comparing. The amenities they provided at the place alone made wedding planning so easy, simple, and hassle free. From the moment we made our appointment with Nicole we felt at home. The hospitality both Nicole and the staff provided was beyond what we expected, even before we had put our deposit down. Once wedding planning was in full swing everyone was always available, friendly, and most importantly intuitive in giving us suggestions and recommendations. Whenever we had a question, whether it be simple or a little more complicated Clarks Landing staff was always available via email or phone. The night of the wedding was absolutely spectacular. All of our guests had an absolute blast stating it was the best wedding they had ever been to! The quality of the food, service of the waiters, the attention provided to us, as the bride and groom, from our maitre d was so detail oriented, we loved it. Never once throughout the night did we not have a drink at hand or food at our table. If I needed something, I would just turn around and there was always someone there immediately. There was an overabundance of food and not just mediocre but juicy and tasteful, we couldn’t get enough. Everyone was so full and there were even seconds! I cannot say enough as to what a pleasure it was working with the staff here and how simple they made the whole wedding planning! I cannot wait to actually attend a wedding here because it just blew our mind! Special thanks to Nicole, Don, Judy, and our amazing photographer Artist European and our awesome videographer Mateo for capturing every beautiful moment at Clarks and being part of our happily ever after.
Ashly & Mark M. – Wedding March 1, 2014
Clarks Landing gave me and my husband the dream wedding, and I could not have been happier. They were super helpful and worked with us on every aspect from the budget to the decor. Nicole and Don are AMAZING at what they do. My wedding was 5 months ago and my guests are still talking about how perfect my wedding was. If I could do it all again I would pick Clarks Landing again and again and again! They are simply the Best!
Layla & John L. – Wedding February 15, 2014
We had our wedding reception at Clarks Landing on 2-8-2014, and simply stated, the day was beyond perfect. We had heard wonderful things from family and friends who had attended weddings there, and I must say that our wedding exceeded even my highest expectations. From the day we met Kristin (our amazing event coordinator), all throughout the planning stages and even now that our big day has passed, she has offered top-notch service in terms of providing information and answering our questions, being extremely flexible in scheduling our meetings, tastings, and other visits to the venue, and taking care to accommodate our special requests so we never had to think twice about anything. She even remembered that we had mentioned early on that our wedding was to fall on my birthday, and she contacted my mom just before the wedding to arrange to have a birthday cake and also coordinated with the band to create the perfect ambiance for me to blow out the candles…though there was really nothing else I could wish for at the moment, since I had just married my soul mate and our wedding was in the beyond capable hands of the Clarks Landing team! This was just one of many examples of the steps Kristin took to make sure that we had the most perfect wedding reception…so please, read on!
Moreover, despite the challenges associated with planning our wedding from several states away, it was such a relief to be able to count on Kristin, Don, Judy, and the entire staff at Clarks throughout our planning process. On the day of our wedding, their coordination and expertise resulted in a flawless evening that my husband and I, and all those in attendance, will remember forever! I have even had vendors providing other services tell me what an amazing job Clarks does, and what a pleasure it is to work with the Clarks staff, which I think says a lot when it comes from other professionals in the business. I truly got the feeling that our wedding was just as important to the staff at Clarks as it was to us, and in my opinion, that type of customer service is priceless. I cannot say enough about the exceptional service provided by the coordinators, maitre d’ Don, and, of course, the outstanding servers and other staff. There was absolutely nothing left to be desired, and everyone went above and beyond in providing incredible service.
One look at the Clarks website or brochure will tell you that the variety and presentation of the food are truly exquisite, and we can vouch for the fact that the taste follows suit! Everything we sampled at our tastings, in the bridal suite where my husband’s and my personal attendant brought us our own sampling of appetizers at the beginning of cocktail hour, everything during the dinner (yes, we ate our food at our own wedding-we wouldn’t have missed it at Clarks!), and even the to-go entrees that our attendant packed up for us were incredible. Our guests continue to rave about the exceptional quality of the food, from cocktail hour to dessert (including our beautiful and delicious cake from Bovella’s), and even the signature cocktails!
Once again, I cannot say enough times how glad we are that we chose Clarks to host our special day. The bottom line is that it is a beyond beautiful venue with exceptional food, and the staff put on a seamless, worry-free wedding that was enjoyed by all. Thank you again to everyone at Clarks for making our wedding a dream come true!
Jessica & Joe V. – Wedding February 8, 2014
It’s possible to have a perfect wedding. Don and team make sure of that. There is not much to say except…….WOW! If you want to have a fairy tale wedding and your guests to be amazed, this is the place for you. Our words can not do justice to what the team at Clarks Landing will accomplish for you.
Paola & Dariusz – Wedding February 1, 2014
There is simply not enough words to be said about how absolutely gorgeous and stunning our wedding day was at Clarks Landing. We have received countless letters, cards, phone calls, and emails from all our guest saying what an incredible time our wedding was, how it was the most beautiful wedding they’ve been to, and what exceptional service Clarks provides to all the guests.
Our experience with Clarks started off the minute we walked through those doors and met Nicole who we then worked with the next 8 months before our big day. She ensured that every wish was met from us and more importantly, she dreamed with us as we talked her through different ideas to see what she thought. She is someone who loves love, and who loves weddings and shows in how she approaches her job each and every day.
Clarks provides not only guests with the best of service (table service for drinks, white gloved servers) but the bride and groom literally walk in and have to worry about nothing the entire time. You have a personal attendant all night who checks in on you, gets you refreshments if needed and even cold towels for when you’re dancing too much! For me, I was very ill on our wedding day with a stomach virus and she was right there all night to help me and see how I was doing. That is the difference between Clark’s and all others, they care about each and every one of their couples.
Simply cannot say enough about this incredible and beautiful place. They have gone above and beyond to make their venue all it is with all the tiniest of touches that make such a difference. Our wedding day was just beautiful and I just got our photos back and still couldn’t be happier with everything. It truly was I believe the best wedding so many of our friends and family had ever been to.
Michelle & Jamie – Wedding January 31, 2014
Where to begin!? The staff of Clarks Landing gave us the wedding of our dreams! From our very first meeting with Don and Kristin, we knew we were in great hands! The actual night of-EXCEEDED our expectations! I am still getting calls from my guests raving about the amazing cocktail hour, the presentation of the food, and the classiness of the decor-from the linens to the china! The service however, is what meant the most to us! We were treated like royalty-and my mother was even told by a staff member ” tonight, you own this place.” Guests were never without a full water glass or folded napkin. Food was served hot and in unison as a table! And seconds of the entrees were offered! That does not happen at other venues. And the surprise performance-I won’t elaborate because it’s an awesome surprise for everyone!! Friends who have been to weddings all over the country are telling us it was the best wedding they have ever been to-and that could not mean more to us as hosts!
Thank you Don, Kristin and the staff of Clarks Landing for giving us a dream come true wedding!!
Xo Ce & Kev – Wedding January 4, 2014
Clarks is by far the best Wedding Venue in NJ. My husband and I could not have picked a better place to have our wedding! Nicole and Don went nothing less than above and beyond in every step of the way in our planning. Our guests were in such awe of how spectacular our event was, they are still talking about it! It was truly the most magical day of our lives and a day that we will never forget. Every detail was simply perfect, and I could not have asked for a better day, thinking back on our wedding still brings tears to my eyes and I owe a large portion of that to Nicole, Don and the staff of Clark’s Landing…Thank you so much!
Courtney & Jeremy – Wedding January 5, 2014
Clarks Landing in Point Pleasant is absolutely positively the ONLY place to have your reception (and ceremony!!!) My husband and I exchanged our vows and danced the night away at Clarks on December 29th & wish we could do it over and over again. First the venue is absolutely gorgeous! It took my breath away every time I went to visit for tasting, finalizing and of course the big day. All of our guests were in awe of its perfection. The food and drink – IMPECCABLE! The rest of the world pales in comparison. It is delicious, fresh and more than anyone can dream. One guest told me afterward that he was still glowing of joy after leaving Clarks because the food was so delicious and he believed that no other person would ever be able to have such a vast array of foods from different cultures and styles in one night in their entire lifetime. The service is unreal – not only did my husband and I feel as though we were royalty – our guests felt so welcomed and taken care of. The entire Clarks team is amazing, kind, hardworking, responsible, genuine – all around amazing. I had the pleasure of working with Don Calello – he is probably the most AWESOME man on the planet (disclaimer – aside from my husband) – he literally makes sure your day is perfect and does it all with a genuine smile on his face because he does care about you, your family, your guests and your big day. Judy also kept me calm while I waited to walk down the aisle – she was fantastic! Carolyn was our personal server for the evening (which in itself was super cool- I couldn’t believe for the entire night we had a kind, caring and attentive Clarks team member tending to whatever we wanted). Our plates were always full and fresh and glasses never empty. All of our guests told us they have never been to such a beautiful event, never seen anything like the affair that Clarks magically makes happen…It is a dream worth having.
Gwendolyn & Shaun A. – Wedding December 29, 2013
Clarks Landing genuinely deserves a 5 in all 5 of the categories. Our wedding exceeded all of our expectations! Months later and we still have guests raving about the food, the drinks, the service, the decor, everything. Not only is the place amazing but the service is even better and this is extremely rare in the wedding industry. Nicole was always available and answered any questions or concerns I had. Don was extremely accommodating to our special needs and requests as a couple. Wedding planning is very stressful but I couldn’t imagine doing it with any other venue. Clarks definitely made it pain free and enjoyable. I’m trying to convince my brother to get married at Clarks because we want to be a guest there! You definitely get what you pay for and it was worth every penny. We’ll never forget our amazing wedding!
Matt & Lauren – Wedding December 14, 2013
Clarks Landing absolutely exceeded our expectations. Two months later and people are still talking about how amazing Clarks was. From the service to the food, everything was absolutely perfect! I highly recommend Clarks Landing, and am forever grateful that they made our wedding day more that I could have ever imagined. Endless thanks to Kristin, Don, Nicole, and all the staff!!!
Allison & Jonathan P – Wedding November 3, 2013
Better than I could have dreamed 😉 The staff at Clarks and especially Don and Nicole were beyond fantastic. The location is gorgeous and the food is top notch; our guests were raving. But beyond all of that, the staff and their attention to details is amazing. Mark and I got married October 26th, 2013 and had our reception at Clarks. We couldn’t have asked for or dreamed of a better day. Just about every guest came up to us, raved about the venue, the food and said how much fun they were having and how our wedding was one of the best they have ever been too. Hearing our guests so happy after all of the hard work was extremely rewarding. We could not have done it without Clarks help. Nicole was there every step of the way and not just answering questions about Clarks, she helped with honeymoon ideas, planning favors, giving suggestions, and sometimes just listening. Planning a wedding is a lot of fun and a lot of work and Don and Nicole truly helped us create a day that was true to Mark and I and left our guests, I think, speechless! Thanks very much for all of your hard work, truly was the best day of our lives!! We would highly recommend Clarks and you will NOT be disappointed.
Janice & Mark S. – Wedding October 26, 2013
As a little girl you dream of the perfect fairy tale wedding…well Clarks Landing, you gave this little girl her dream wedding! The night was magical from start to finish and we couldn’t want for anything! The service was amazing and Don and Nicole, you are truly the best! You and your staff made me feel like a princess, it was amazing! Our family and friends are still talking about our wedding and telling us it was the best wedding they have ever been to in their life! Thank you so much from the bottom of our hearts for giving us a day that truly has been the best day of our lives! You’re the best and we are so happy! Xoxo 🙂
Alicia & Shane T. – Wedding October 19, 2013
The best! We can’t thank Don, Nicole & Judy enough!!! All of the staff at Clarks Landing went above & beyond! I felt like we were dealing with family the whole time we were planning our daughters wedding! I truly can’t say enough about Clarks Landing! Our guest were amazed & still can’t stop talking about it!
Lisa & Joe S. – Parents of the Bride October 19, 2013
It’s so very difficult to describe Clarks Landing in just a few words – The venue itself is beautiful, right on the marina in Point and the staff exceeds all customer service expectations. We were blown away from the moment we stepped foot on the property… We can’t thank Kristin, Don, Nicole, and the entire crew at Clarks enough for their guidance, advice, and assistance throughout the wedding planning process. They were a great team to work with and really made our wedding a dream come true. Our guests continue to remind us about how much they loved our wedding – all thanks to Clarks!!!
Lauren & Jon M. – Wedding October 11, 2013
Hi Nicole, you may not remember me, but our daughter Alex had her reception at Clarks Landing a little over a year ago ( Sept. 23,2012) and it was FABULOUS. I have wanted to stop by and tell you in person since the day after, but never made the time to drive down. (poor excuse). But I want to tell you and Don and all of your staff what a wonderful job you did. People still tell us it was the best wedding they ever went to. Alex and Alex just celebrated their first anniversary,and wish we could relive the day all over. So I am so sorry I took so long to send this thank you. I tell everyone Clarks Landing is the place to have their wedding reception.
Marianne R. – Wedding September 23, 2012
Rosemarie & William B. – Daughter’s Wedding September 20, 2013
More than you can dream of ! From the moment my husband and I stepped in at Clarks Landing we knew this had to be our venue. Every employee made the planning process seamless and made our day spectacular. Honestly Clarks gave me piece of mind. I knew that I had nothing to worry about with them because they were so professional and were on top of everything. They were great communicators and returned my emails almost immediately. Kristin was wonderful to work with. People still are talking about our wedding!
Christina & Ryan L. – Wedding September 8, 2013
There really are no words to express how amazing Don, Nicole, and the entire Clarks Landing family are. Nicole was the sweetest coordinator we could ask for and understood our concept and helped in so many ways. The food was out of this world. The views are spectacular. Our family had an amazing time and we are getting phone calls every day from our guests telling us that it was the best wedding they have been too. We know we have formed a forever bond with Nicole and look forward to many more phone calls, emails, and possibly dinners.
Tonimarie & Bobby Wedding August 25, 2013
From the second we walked into Clarks Landing, we knew that was the only place for our wedding. It was so beautiful and the staff is truly amazing! Nicole was able to answer any question I had so quickly and had such great suggestions. She made the whole planning process run so smoothly. Don was so amazing making sure everything was flawless the day of the wedding even despite some rain as the ceremony was about to begin. Our guests cannot stop talking about how it was the best wedding they have been to and how amazing the food was. We cannot thank Clark Landings enough for making our wedding a night we will never forget.
Stacie & Phil P. Wedding: August 18, 2013
Clarks Landing (and especially Kristin and Don) were with my husband and I throughout our entire planning process! From the moment we took our first look at the venue, we knew we didn’t need to look any further.
From our unique vision (a macabre, yet classy “Til Death Do We Part”), to our signature drinks, special requests and moments that I needed to call Kristin to vent (thanks a million, by the way!), we were treated as if we were the only wedding they were preparing for. Their attention to detail is absolutely impeccable. As a bride who was worried about every minute detail and a perfectionist by nature, I can honestly say that I had every single one of my needs met. Nothing was less than perfect and the entire staff at Clarks makes certain of that.
We even put out a special requested for the bartender who works at the restaurant downstairs (who came up with some of our specialty drinks) to work during the cocktail hour/reception.
In a heartbeat, I would do it all over again. Now I’m just jealous of anyone who will be having their wedding there in the future! Want to switch places?
Thank you more than words can express! <3
Sara & John T. – Wedding August 17, 2013
We had our wedding at Clarks Landing and it was absolutely the wedding of our dreams! I, for one, was overwhelmed reading dozens of reviews when picking a wedding venue so I will keep this concise…
Venue- Clarks Landing has a beautiful cocktail hour room and incredible, round (everyone has a good seat!) ballroom both with views of the river. I wanted a waterfront location, but loved that it was indoors because unfortunately no matter how much planning you do for your wedding- you cannot control the weather!
Food- Delicious! 5 star quality food and a ton of options to choose from. Many guests raved about the food and how much of it there was. The presentations of the food were beautiful as well.
Staff- I cannot say enough wonderful things about this group of people. Don and Nicole made our planning process fun and stress-free. They answered questions promptly, gave great advice, and were a pleasure to work with throughout the year. The wedding day itself was outstanding thanks to the hard work and enthusiasm of everyone that works at Clarks Landing. Thank you!
Basically, if you want a perfect wedding…go to Clarks Landing!
Lauren & Brian H. – Wedding August 3, 2013
The entire staff at Clarks Landing made my daughter’s wedding a dream come true for all of us. I have been reading the reviews for a year so I knew the wedding was going to be beautiful! (That alone was a pleasure!) Everything everyone said was so true – the service, the food, the views…Many people told us they felt like they were on a cruise! Don and Nicole were a pleasure to work with and Judy (assistant Maître D) even wore an anchor skirt to match the theme of the wedding. The entire day was magical – it was like a fairy tale wedding! It was an absolute pleasure working with all of you and I will definitely come back to the Dockside Grill downstairs so I can reminisce about the beautiful day that we had on August 3.
Dianne & Gary L. – Parents of the Bride August 3, 2013
There is no other way to describe our wedding except to say that it was truly magical. Every wish we had came true thanks to the amazing staff at Clarks Landing. Kristin & Don were always there to answer questions and to help make our dream wedding a reality. Our wedding was 2 weeks ago and we continue to hear how wonderful it was from all of our family and friends! We cannot say enough about the amazing service at Clarks. We will forever be grateful that we have such fond memories of our perfect wedding reception thanks to everyone at Clarks Landing Yacht Club!
Jen & Tom G. – Wedding July 28, 2013
We had reception at Clarks Landing back in 2013 and it was one of the best choices I ever made! Our friends and family are still talking about how amazing our wedding was! Everyone at Clarks is fantastic! We absolutely loved working with Nicole, she went above and beyond to make sure our day was perfect! The venue is beautiful, the food is fantastic, and the staff is out of this world! Thanks to Clarks Landing we had the most amazing reception!!!
Carolyn & Andrew D. – Wedding July 20, 2013
Colts Neck, NJ
This review will not come close to conveying the elation we’re feeling after celebrating our daughter’s wedding at Clarks on 7-19-13. After booking a year ago, it’s hard to imagine not having ONE complaint. But we don’t. Not one. We keep reliving every moment and our guests keep calling to rave. We’re still numb wondering how you all pulled together and exceeded our expectations.
Earlier in the week when the temperatures rose to what felt like 200 degrees, we were praying for some divine intervention. Well, we practically got it when Don gently convinced our daughter to move the ceremony inside. Not only was it practical for at least 100 reasons, it was surprisingly even more spectacular than what we imagined a perfect outside ceremony would be. How did that happen after the bride has been dreaming of an outside wedding since she was five?
Nicole…who gets down on their hands and knees trying to rid the bride of a small lipstick stain on the bottom of her dress? Way above and beyond!! A friend of mine called yesterday and said, “Forget the royal baby. Lets talk about the royal wedding!” She’s just one of many. We and our guests ALL felt like royalty.
A special thanks to Judy who put us at ease when we dropped off boxes of “stuff” and she calmly told us she knew exactly what to do with them. And she did! Everything was perfect.
And the rest of the staff…every one of them…perfect!
None of us wanted it to end. I guess that says it all. You’re a class act and we will shout it from the rooftops when anyone asks. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you.
Parents of the Bride ~ Wedding July 19, 2013
Our wedding was on July 7, 2013 and it was the best day of our lives. Clarks Landing was the first and only place we visited just a week after getting engaged. Not only was Clarks itself beyond beautiful, but meeting Kristin for the first time was so wonderful. I remember so clearly the tour of Clarks and Kristin really taking her time with us in explaining everything. For the entire year thereafter leading up to our wedding day, Kristin would almost immediately answer any questions I had through email any time of the day. On the day of the wedding, I was blown away by the treatment of the staff. One would think that Kristin was a relative of ours in how we were greeted upon arrival and throughout the rest of the day. After the ceremony, while leading us to the bridal suite, Kristin greeted us with such genuine excitement and not once did we feel as if her outpourings of joy were business formalities meant to make clients feel secure. Rather, everything was done and felt with such heartfelt sincerity. It was as if she had a personal investment in ensuring that what should be the best day of our lives was the best day of our lives. Don was equally genuine and heartfelt in ensuring the same – from his choreography on the fly in telling us where we need to be, where we need to be facing, how to be prepared for our introductions, cutting the cake, etc… all without once ever feeling that it was too much. Don made sure the magnificent wait staff was doing everything they needed to and he let the reception and our guests handle the rest. Our guests are still raving about our wedding! There is no other place we could imagine having our wedding and no other way we could’ve drawn the day up to be more perfect; not just because of the venue and its location but because of the people. Kristin, Don and the staff are who really make Clarks Landing the perfect place for a wedding.
Josephine & John Y. ~ Wedding July 7, 2013
When my husband and I walked into Clarks with Jacqueline in January 2012 we knew our search was over. We looked at 17 other places at the Jersey Shore before Clarks. We brought our parents back to see it, and they fell in love too. We booked our wedding for 7/6/13. The downstairs and upstairs rooms were absolutely stunning. Nicole, Kristin, Don, Judy, and their entire staff are amazing. They were beyond accommodating. The week of our wedding was one of the hardest weeks of my life with the loss of my cousin. Nicole and the staff were so kind and flexible with my family. It meant the world to us.
Also our server Carolyn was amazing. She was just fantastic and was so kind. The night went so fast and she made sure everything was to our liking. The wait staff is all everyone talks about. It’s been over 2 months now since our wedding, and as we see our family and friends, they can’t stop talking about the service… And the food… And the cocktail hour… And the drinks… And the Gangnam style dance!
I hope someone in my lifetime gets married at Clarks so we can attend a wedding reception there! It’s not everyday that you come across staff and service as exceptional as Clarks. My husband and I couldn’t possibly have asked for anything more on our most important day. There is no other venue on the Jersey Shore that can even compete with Clarks.
Erin & Mark L. – Wedding July 6, 2013
After the excitement of our engagement had settled my fiancé and I decided to book appointments to look at different venues with my parents. Our first stop was Clarks Landing and it was our last stop. As we arrived at Clarks Landing a bubbly and excited Nicole greeted us to take a tour of the venue. She really sold the place for us, so kind and her attention to what we wanted. After leaving Clarks Landing that day I knew that’s where I wanted my wedding. Not even an hour went by and we called Nicole to book our wedding. We wanted the best and we definitely got it!! Throughout the entire wedding planning process the staff at Clarks Landing is truly incredible. Any questions, concerns, or needs they were there to help make your day the best yet. Arriving at our wedding we were greeted with smiles and many congratulations. Not to mention the outstanding view, but their staff is the best around. My guest kept raving about the wonderful staff at Clarks Landing. The best part about Clarks Landing is that with all the weddings they have at their venue, they make you feel like you are the only one!! I can’t express how grateful we are for all that you’ve done to make our day perfect!
Love, Kim and Dustin Wedding: July 5, 2013
We went to a wedding in 2011 at Clarks Landing and before being engaged I knew this was where we would get married. We looked at other venues in addition to Clarks and NOTHING compared to them. Every time we went somewhere my response was “well Clarks had this” or “I like that at Clarks better”. Nothing could shake the top quality of our first experience with Clarks, and that is why we HAD to have this venue.
The staff at Clarks Landing are the most amazing and professional people I have ever seen. Don, Nicole, and Kristin were so accommodating and helpful in every step of our wedding planning process. They were not just a venue location, they assisted us in everything from the cake to the escort cards and even working things our with our entertainment. Their attention to detail on every aspect was great! Our wedding was on an extremely hot day, at one point during pictures my husband and I felt dizzy and nauseous, they staff hurried us inside and not only brought us upstairs to the AC but got us water and cold towels. That gesture to make us feel better was just top notch in our book,. During the wedding we were taken care of in every way possible. Words cannot express they love we have for this staff from beginning to end.
Besides the staff the venue is hands down the most beautiful location I ever seen. The windows over looking the bay make for the perfect pictures. So many memories were made for us and we will never forget our perfect day and the perfect place.
Lauren & Jack M. – Wedding July 3, 2013
Hello, my husband and I got married on June 29, 2013 at Clarks Landing in Point Pleasant. All I can say is WOW! If you are looking to have an outstanding wedding of your dreams, I highly recommend booking Clarks Landing. I was lucky to attend a wedding at Clarks Landing prior to booking my date. Once I was a guest at this location, I knew this was it! We did look at other places, however nothing compared! Everything about Clarks Landing is amazing. The food, the staff, the location, the venue, the helpfulness, were just a few reasons why Clarks Landing was the wedding of my dreams.
Melissa & Brady S. – Wedding June 29, 2013
I cannot say enough great things about Clarks Landing Yacht Club!
From start to finish, Don and Kristin were wonderful to work. They made the wedding planning process enjoyable as they were both always accommodating and more than happy to answer any questions we had. Even on our wedding day, Don and Kristin were there from beginning to end to help us through the day.
On top of the excellent service, the venue is absolutely BEAUTIFUL. It’s the perfect setting with gorgeous water views. If you are getting married there, I highly recommend taking advantage of pictures on the dock – our pictures came out great!
And the food, people always talk about food at a wedding. Well let me tell you, people are still raving about our food and how excellent it was.
If you are looking to have an elegant wedding at the Jersey Shore, I highly recommend checking out Clarks Landing – you will not be disappointed!
Perfect Venue, Perfect Wedding!
Heather & Dennis F. ~ Wedding June 23, 2013
Thanks for a great day! So much planning and so much to think about and in the end we could not have asked for a better celebration for our daughter’s wedding.
From the moment we sat down with Don in our initial planning to the day of the wedding we never lacked in confidence we were in good hands. We cannot say enough about the management and staff at Clarks Landing who in no doubt will exceed your expectations.
Special thanks to Kristin and Nicole for efficiently responding to our questions and concerns .Also, thanks to the chef for catering to our guests with special dietary needs.
Now for the food, the best cocktail reception we have ever been to, the room, the selection, the service and the view could not be beat. No one wanted to leave thinking this is the best. Once we arrived upstairs for the reception the room was breathtaking and everyone was ready to party and enjoy a great evening. Don is a true professional; he coordinated the reception so smoothly without being in anyways intrusive.
Our guests are still talking about the wedding and all hope to return some day.
Thanks again for making my daughter and son-in laws wedding day a lifetime special memory
Kevin & Dorothy, Parents of the Bride – Wedding June 22, 2013
I can remember the day we started looking at venues like it was yesterday. My fiancé and my families came along with us as we toured another facility in a nearby beach town. After being brought to tears, about how unhappy I was with the place, my mother in law took me by the hand and said “lets just do it, let’s go look at Clarks.” I had lost my parents 2 years prior and looking at wedding venues without them was a struggle in and of itself. My Aunt and Uncle agreed with my mother in law that looking at Clarks may just cure my case of the blues for the day. We called and spoke to Don, and once we got there he spent nearly 2 hours showing us the beauty and sophistication behind his venue. My fiancé Steven was immediately in love and looking over at me, he knew I was too. I knew from that second I had to become a Clarks Landing Bride. Planning went by in a what felt like to be an instant, and each meeting with the incredible staff at Clarks was more enjoyable than the last. They literally took care of everything. Assuring me that everything would be perfect no matter what. I emailed, called, and facebook messaged my friends at Clarks once a day for months, and they helped me with every single aspect of our day. Thinking about it now brings tears to my eyes. Our June 15th, 2013 wedding day came sooner than people had told me it would. I said I do to the man of my dreams, and then shortly after walked into a real life fairytale. The ceiling glimmered with blues and pinks. The night went by in the blink of an eye, and we truly had the time of our lives. My only regret is not getting to be a guest at my own wedding. I am still hearing how amazing it was. Don, Nicole, and Kristen helped me plan every last detail, down to the placement of favors on the tables. My family, bridal party, and close friends are all impressed by the incredible staff. Don’s love and passion for Clark’s Landing shows in every thing he does. I thought that planning a wedding was going to be the most stressful thing in the world. Don helped me so that it was a beautiful journey that my HUSBAND and I will not soon forget. We had a perfect wedding, on the perfect day, at the perfect venue. I can’t wait to someday be a guest there again.
Brooke and Steven C. ~ Wedding June 15, 2013
Clark’s Landing provided my husband and I with excellent service and made us truly feel like king and queen for the night. Don, Judy and Nicole made sure everything was set and we worried about nothing the entire night other than dancing with our guests 🙂 I cannot express enough how amazing this place is and how professional the staff are. Even the waiters were on top of their game, always making sure my parents and husband and I were eating and drinking. Clark’s Landing was a dream come true to have my wedding at! Thank you again Clarks Landing for EVERYTHING 🙂
Christie & Kevin V. – Wedding June 9, 2013
Clarks Landing was the second and last venue we looked at before booking our wedding for June 8, 2013. I don’t know where to begin! Firstly, Don and Nicole were so encouraging and helpful during the wedding planning process. All of my emails to Nicole (and trust me, there were many! Sometimes twice a day at the end) were answered promptly. Once the day arrived, I felt so calm because I knew everything was taken care of. Don led us through a quick rehearsal the night before so everyone knew what they were doing. Nicole and Judy were there in the wedding suite for support. When Nicole took me to see the reception room before the guests arrived, I was blown away. Clarks Landing truly brought my wedding to life. The room looked gorgeous, the sun was shining, the water in the background was sparkling, the dance floor looked ready for us. It was heaven.
The food was OUTRAGEOUS, my guests are still talking about it. If you are a foodie like me, you should definitely look forward to their food tasting! Our parents my fiancee attended along with other families getting married around the same time as us, we got to try all of the chicken/ beef/ fish dishes, along with all of the desserts. They also had a local dance studio give a mini dance lesson, we ended up booking the dance studio also!
The grounds were beautiful and provided the perfect backdrop to our wedding photos, especially the dock area and the fountain.
I can’t thank Clarks Landing enough for making our wedding a reality. Can we do it all over again? <3
Ariel & Bill D. ~ Wedding June 8, 2013
Don, Nicole, Judy, and the entire staff at Clark’s Landing: We cannot begin to describe what an amazing job you guys did for mine and Justin’s wedding. The service, atmosphere, and food were so incredible, they exceeded out expectations. Our wedding was better than we could have ever dreamed because of you. Your professionalism and genuine caring personality was so comforting, it took away all the pressure and stress of the day. Every single guest was so impressed, they can not, and will not stop talking about the wedding! We continue to receive compliments that this was the best wedding our guests have ever been to. Thanks for everything!
Larissa & Justin S. – Wedding June 7, 2013

Clarks Landing truly gave us the wedding of our dreams. It’s elegant atmosphere was the perfect setting, and our photographers and videographer actually thanked US for being able to take so many great shots there. The entire staff was professional and accommodating, without ever being in the way. Guests are raving about the food, especially cocktail hour. We are looking forward to attending a wedding there as guests, so that we can get the full experience!
Mallory & Ryan L. ~ Wedding June 1, 2013
Clarks Landing was simply amazing. Every aspect of our wedding from the ceremony to cocktail hour to the reception was outstanding. Nicole, Don, and Judy were a pleasure to work with and made everything happen just as we had asked. This place was the first place we looked and we knew right away that we wanted to have our wedding here. We have been married for over a month now and we are still getting compliments on how nice everything was. So thank you guys again for making all our wishes and dreams come true.
Love Kristin and Joe D. ~ Wedding May 26, 2013
Although I looked for a long time for wedding venues, I knew that Clarks Landing was something special just from viewing their web page. As soon as I walked into the venue the magic that was felt through the pictures became so real and I knew at that moment that this would be where my fairytale wedding would take place. Obviously, every girl dreams about their wedding day and Clarks Landing full filled that beyond my wildest imagination. After speaking with Nicole for the first time I felt that I had not only my own “wedding planner” but someone I knew I could trust regarding any advice she would offer for our day. She was there every step of the way and we are all so thankful for her professionalism, loving personality, and overall dedication to her job which is so easily seen. When I first saw the outdoor ceremony area overlooking the water I just fell in love but unfortunately, on my wedding day, it rained and that was not possible. As I pulled up to Clarks Landing I was greeted by Don. Knowing how disappointed I was with the weather he reassured me that he would make our ceremony simply beautiful inside and to trust him. Well, I did put my trust in him and he made our indoor ceremony more beautiful than I could ever could have imagined, even if it were outside. We can not thank Nicole, Don, and the rest of the AMAZING staff at Clarks Landing enough for making every dream of ours come true. We LOVE you guys!!!!
Nicole and Michael W. ~ Wedding May 24, 2013
We just had our wedding here this past weekend. From the moment we walked into Clark’s for our first visit, it took all of our breathes away. It is impossible to truly describe unless you are there. The views are beautiful, the cocktail room has a ton for seating, amazing views. Our guests were raving about the food. Each display was a piece of art!!! It was beyond anything I ever experienced at any wedding! Our guests keep using the phrase “top-notch” and it is from start to finish. The staff…oh my god! The most amazing staff!!! You can tell that they love working there! Our guests were blown away with how nice, friendly, professional, and happy the staff was. One of our favorite moments was then the staff put on a performance, it was so much fun and everyone was blown away! There were so many touches, that my husband and I didn’t even know about until the wedding day. The ballroom… my favorite! It is just the most magical place, I mean it! The room is set up with such detail and thought, that nothing, I mean nothing was not considered! The chandeliers are just gorgeous. The gold back chairs, LOVE them! The table setting with the beautiful China and tablecloths. Everything from top to bottom is unreal. All our guests said it was the best wedding and venue they were been too. Our vendors were so excited to work our wedding for the fact that they are treated so well at Clark’s as well. Our waitress was always a few steps away with anything we need. It was incredible! There was never a email or question that wasn’t answered in minutes, or a few hours. Nicole was amazing to plan with, I can’t say enough great things about her. So helpful, organized, and know you just love her job. It was incredible to work with her. Don, was nothing short of amazing! He knows his stuff! He was incredible with detail and making sure we knew everything and everything was just perfect on the wedding day. Our wedding was a dream come true thanks to Clarks!!!
Tina and Dan A. ~ Wedding May 11, 2013
Clarks Landing Yacht Club is the most amazing venue at the Jersey Shore! Everything was perfect on our wedding day and my husband and I are still talking about the service two weeks later. From the first time we met Kristin, we felt like we were a priority to Clarks even though they host a number of weddings each weekend. Each and every question we had was answered very quickly and I truly felt like I had nothing to worry about in regards to the venue (shocking!).
Kristin was so wonderfully helpful from start to finish and I cannot say enough wonderful things about her and her event planning skills. Don was amazing too! He even whipped out a tool kit when we had a malfunction with my husband’s walker as soon as we arrived. We honestly felt like royalty and did not have to do anything except enjoy the most amazing wedding we have been too! Our waitress was so attentive and we heard the same from our guests about the staff serving their tables. We were never left needing anything! The level of professionalism, high class dining, and caring nature of the entire staff shone through and our guests are still talking about how wonderful Clark’s is. I would 100% recommend this venue to anyone looking to get married at the Jersey Shore!
Alison & Jesse M. ~ Wedding May 10, 2013
From the moment I went to Clark’s landing I knew there was no other place I would rather have my ceremony and wedding reception. The whole entire staff was more than accommodating with requests from start to finish. I actually have received a thank you card from a guest who said it was the best wedding they have ever been too!!! I thought I would be sending the thank you notes first! Thank you don, Nicole an Judy for helping my wedding day dreams come true. The only regret I have is not making the day last longer !
Sandi & George M. – Wedding May 5, 2013
5 stars all the way! I can’t say enough great things about Clarks Landing and our beautiful wedding. If you want to get married at the shore- this is your place. From the moment my fiance and I walked into the venue and met Nicole we were blown away. This was our place! Over our year and half engagement they were there every step of the way. Don and Nicole were willing to drop everything to walk us through when we came down, answer every email sent (and there were alot towards the end!), and treat us like we were the only couple getting married there- when there are multiple weddings every weekend.
Don made our day run so smooth that it was a miracle! Our server Michelle was never too far away- and made sure we had everything we needed before we even knew it! ]
The ballroom, cocktail hour, outdoor ceremony, and docks were the picture perfect setting for our photos.
Our guests have been raving about the food, drinks, and setting for the past 2 weeks!
All I can say is- get married here- make your most important memories at Clarks landing- and you will never be sorry!
Barry & Patrick H. ~ Wedding May 4, 2013
Don’t believe me that it is all 5 out of 5 for everything, go to the place… I spent under 5 minutes at Clarks landing before I fell in love with the venue as well as the staff. The place is amazing, the staff is incredible and friendly. The food was so good at the cocktail hour that a lot of my guest thought that was the reception. I heard from so many of my guest how incredible the wedding was, and Clarks Landing played a huge part in that…. They think of everything, they even have a huge generator outside, just in case… If that is not an example as to their level of detail, I don’t know what is…
Stefanie & Dean M. – Wedding May 3, 2013
PERFECTION! From start to finish I couldn’t have been happier with my experience at Clarks. From meeting Kristin on the first day of researching venues in the area to the entire wedding day experience it was an absolute pleasure working with the group at Clarks. We had to change our date about 6 months before the wedding and Kristin and Don made it happen without any push back. Any time we had questions or concerns we always received an answer/solution almost immediately. They always have a smile on their faces and are super willing to help and accommodate. You can’t even imagine how beautiful your wedding will turn out there until the day of… I was completely blown away, and so were our guests! We lucked out with beautiful weather for the outdoor ceremony and the sun was setting right during cocktail hour, it looked breath-taking in the cocktail hour room. It was so beautiful that our guests couldn’t even believe the cocktail room wasn’t the reception area. Once I saw the reception area it was absolutely magical, such magnificent attention to detail. The service was amazing and our guests were so happy. The groom and I were more than satisfied with our big day, I would highly recommend working with the staff at Clark’s and having your special day at this location. Thank you Don/Kristin/Judy and the rest of the staff – you made our day so special and magical!
Lauren & Brian C. ~ Wedding April 26, 2013
Beautiful and Amazing day!! My husband and I got married here on 04/19/2013 and it was literally the best wedding anyone could have asked for. For starers, not one of my guests had a negative comment, it has been three weeks and I’m still receiving phone calls about amazingness; from the big things like the food and very attentive staff to small details. My experience as a bride was also unreal. I planned my wedding in 4 months and everyone from Kristin to Don where there to help me with any little (or big :)) thing i needed. They emailed me constantly to check in on their very relaxed bride to make sure i was doing great and to see if i needed anything. They made my day relaxing and stress free which is what every bride and groom need. Some specific things that really stuck out to me where how attentive the ENTIRE staff was to me and my groom. If they saw me wondering around they would always ask if i need anything or hand me food or drinks at the cocktail hour so i didn’t have to even think but could simply relax! The martini station was a big hit with my guests as well as the sushi station! This place will make your wedding dreams come true and is worth every penny and more. the experience is one of a kind and you and your guests will never forget your big day that is a promise i will make you because i have experienced it first had! All of my love goes out to everyone at the Clarks Landing Yacht Club i can never repay your for what you gave me on my amazing day!
Love always Krissy and Jeremy B. ~ Wedding April 19, 2013
Absolutely Perfect! That is the only way to describe this venue. My guests went on and on about how gorgeous, beautiful, and amazing this place was. Don and Nicole are so great! They made this process very easy for us. The view is breathtaking and the service was wonderful. I was told by many people that this was the best wedding that they have ever been to and I completely agree!
Lindsay & Kyle C. – Wedding March 23, 2013
If it were possible to give Clarks Landing Yacht Club 10 STARS, we would have given them 20 !!! From the moment my wife walked into Clarks over a year ago when she was researching venues to the night of our reception, we were blown away every step of the way. Don & Nicole at Clarks were attentive and on top of everything throughout the planning process. Although we know we weren’t their only clients, they treated us as if we were. The night of the reception was unbelievable, the food was excellent, the service was phenomenal, and the venue was beautiful. We are still receiving compliments on Clark’s – our guests are still giving us compliments on everything from the food to the service from the staff. We thought that our private server (Cody, who was fantastic) was the only server giving personal attention to anyone that night, but little did we know that all the servers at Clark’s were giving our guests personal attention. We cannot say enough about our experience with Clark’s, we cannot wait until we are invited as guests to a wedding there.
Natalie & George G. ~ Wedding January 26, 2013
There are almost no words to describe how incredible our experience was at Clarks Landing. As soon as we walked in and saw the incredible view, and elegant decor, we knew that this was where we had to get married. Don and Nicole provide the most amazing customer service I have ever experienced. I do not think there was an e-mail that I sent or phone call that I made that was not answered within 1 hour. I knew that on the day of my wedding, I would not have to worry about a thing, and I was right! They managed to make us feel like we were the only wedding they had ever had- remembering every little detail. We have had so many people tell us that the cocktail hour was the best they have ever attended. Our wedding was the first day of Chanuakkah and we asked them to do a potato latke station. They were happy to do something they had never done before. Don even suggested a Jelly Donut and coffee station as guests left. The food was incredible and our guests just loved it. Most importantly, the staff at Clarks went above and beyond! During dessert, my mother moved seats to talk to a friend, and when she looked down, she realized that her waiter had moved her cappuccino to her new seat. It was little things like this that really set Clarks apart. Even though our wedding was on a cold and rainy day, we did not even notice because everything was so seamless. Thank you so much for giving us the wedding of our dreams!
Stephanie & Peter ~ Wedding December 9, 2012
We were married on October 6th of this year and we are still hearing what a beautiful wedding it was!! Clark’s Landing made our day unforgettable!! Their attention to detail was impeccable. They made us feel like we were celebrities the whole day. Our guest keep talking about how beautiful the venue was and how amazing the food was. Don and his staff are beyond amazing and they have this down to a science.
Anonymous ~ Wedding December 7, 2012
Our wedding was an event to remember!! And it would not have been if it weren’t for all of the staff at Clarks Landing. We are still hearing from so many people that it was the best wedding they have been to! We couldn’t have been happier with how the night went on. The venue is beautiful, the food was spectacular, the service was impeccable, and Don and Nicole made the night seem so effortless.
Even with problems that we encountered because of the hurricane, they accommodated us and made our day seem so easy. We can’t thank everyone at Clarks enough and our day will go down in history! (At least our history :)) And the moment in the night when we saw the staff dancing and singing to “Gangnam Style” just put the icing on the cake! Thank you so much for all you did and for making our wedding everything that we imagined and hoped it would be!
Clair & Nick H. ~ Wedding November 10, 2013
This was my daughter’s wedding and let me tell you we were treated like family.everything they said it would be , it was better. every staff member was fantastic. i can not say enough about how good this place is. we have received more phone calls from quests thanking us for a fantastic time. THANK YOU CLARKS LANDING
Steve Father of the Bride ~ Wedding February 23, 2013
3 years later and people are still talking about what a great wedding I was! I knew the minute I walked into Clark’s Landing I wanted to have my reception there! From the stunning ballroom to Don and Nicole’s help with every step along the way I could not have asked for a better day. Not only do they make you feel amazing but they continue to make you feel like family all of these years later!
Alex & Alex B. – Wedding September 23, 2012
Spring Lake, NJ
Clarks Landing was one of the first venues we looked at and from the moment we walked thru the doors we knew there was no other place to have our wedding. From our first visit which was in January 2011 all the way through our wedding on August 18 2012 Don, Nicole and Staff did a tremendous job! Anything and Everything we needed they were willing to help with. Whether it was giving advice for favors or answering all the emails they were always right there when we needed them. Clark’s Landing blew our minds with what they provided for our wedding. I can honestly say from my husband and I we couldn’t have imagined anything more for our special day. Cocktail hour flew by but Don & Nicole made sure that we didn’t miss out on the food by having a sample of each waiting for us in the bridal suite. The food was amazing and so many people were blown away by the idea of “seconds” during dinner. The staff is truly professional and was there to cater to us at any moment, when our glass was empty a refill was right there for us 😉 There is so much more I could go on for days, so I will sum it up with EVERYTHING at Clark’s is top notch!! We say it over and over again, Clarks Landing is AMAZING!!!! I have had people come up to me who were unable to make the wedding and say “I am sorry we missed it, I heard it was out of this world” and I have Don, Nicole and the rest of the Clark’s Landing staff to thank for that! Clarks Landing is the place to be! I give them a 10!!!
Melissa & Travis L. ~ Wedding August 18, 2012
There really are no words to describe the level of service at Clarks Landing. From the moment I first walked into the beautiful setting, I knew my wedding had to be there. I never dreamed that in addition to the amazing water views, I would not have to worry about anything. Nicole took care of all my worries, and always responded within minutes of calling or emailing her. She made me feel like I was the only bride she had to deal with.My actual wedding day was so stress free. Clarks did an amazing job of seeing my vision and executing it to the tee. The ceremony space was picturesque. Rebecca, the bridal attendant, was so sweet and helpful. If I would turn around with any need she would be there, with whatever I needed already in her hands.It has been weeks since my wedding and I am still getting phone calls about how amazing it was. I have received rave reviews on everything from the lighting, service, and food. I have been asked if all my photos have been computer altered because people can not get over the pure beauty that this venue has to over.I only hope someone I know get married at Clarks so I can get the chance to experience it as a guest.I am so sad that the wedding process is over, as I will miss the whole Clarks landing team. They truly go above and beyond for their couples.
Alyssa ~ Wedding: July 14, 2012
We cannot say enough about Clarks Landing Yacht Club. They made it so that the entire planning process was simple and all-inclusive; furthermore, their staff was incredibly professional and easy to do business with. Many of our guests were blown away by the execution and service provided the men and women who served as staff on the night of the event. We received dozens of compliments explaining how our wedding was “the best wedding I have ever been to”. From the fancy interior-decor to the breath-taking exterior views, Clarks Landing was the perfect venue for our wedding. We wish we could do it all over again!
Tara & Jason M. – Wedding July 7, 2012
I cannot even begin to explain what an amazing and incredible wedding day we had at Clarks Landing on July 7th. After booking our wedding with Don a year and a half ago, we heard nothing but what an incredible venue Clarks is and how attentive and polite the staff is, and the food being “out of this world”. We were already confident that we had made the right choice with Clarks, but hearing it from family and friends even prior to our wedding day… really sealed the deal. Hearing so many good things about Clarks for so long, we of course had high expectations for our wedding day…. and even though we didn’t think it would be possible, Clarks had not only met those expectations, but exceeded them in ways we didn’t think were even possible. Even being one of the hottest days of the year (105!) and the power going out not once, but three times in the early stages of the reception… Clarks came to the rescue with their ever ready generators and saved the day! Looking back, there is not one thing we would have done differently… and are still receiving so many praises from family and friends about what an amazing time they had at our wedding. We are truly grateful for everything Don and Nicole had done for us throughout the process as it was with their help that our wedding day was as special as it was! To everyone at Clarks, we would like to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for giving us a day we will never forget and for helping us have the wedding of our dreams… and then some!

Clarks Landing just blows your mind. Our wedding happened on June 24th this year, and People are still talking and raving about it. I’ve heard comments like ” I went to lots of weddings but this one by far is the best” The service was just above and beyond our expectations, very professional and classy, the food was excellent and so much of it, Cocktail hour was amazing.From the very beginning Don and Nicolle were very helpful and professional. They made the wedding process easy and smooth. For how busy they are they would always respond quick and would accommodate you. WE were extremely happy with Clarks Landing and would recommend this place to everybody. They due get booked quick so you have to reserve them in advance. Thank you Don and Nicole for doing an amazing job and making our big day memorable.

I had my wedding here this summer and it was amazing. Don was helpful with everything and went above and beyond. I didn’t have a wedding planner but felt like one would have been a waste after working with clark’s landing because everyone there was so helpful and had wonderful ideas. Everyone raved about the food and I have to say (and not just because it was my wedding) that it was definitely one of the best I have had. If you are looking for venues definitely look here because everything was perfect and they truly made my wedding the best day of my life!

I truly had a wonderful experience at Clarks Landing and have heard nothing but rave reviews from my guests. The food was amazing, the service was great, and the venue was beautiful. Don and his staff did a wonderful job of making everything as easy for me as possible- from picking up/ dropping off decorations, to scheduling meetings a little late around my work schedule. The only think that makes me upset is that my husband and I weren’t able to spend more time eating the delicious food in cocktail hour!

Even before my husband and I were talking engagement, whenever we’d pass Clark’s Landing in the Manasquan river on my family’s boat, I would say, “that is where we are going to get married!!”. Sure enough, that day came when my now husband proposed to me and one of my first and last venue appointments was at Clark’s Landing. It all began with that phone call I had with Nicole Hoffman. I hadn’t even stepped foot into the venue but I already knew this was our place! — words can’t express how amazing it was to have chosen Clark’s Landing as our venue. From the preliminary planning through to the days before and the day of, Don, Nicole and staff had everything under control and I was not the least bit stressed those days beforehand. The staff treated us like family and made us feel like we were the only bride and groom in the world Here we are almost 2 months later and our family and friends are still raving about how this was the most amazing wedding they have ever been to! — from the service, to the food, to seamless flow all throughout the night, Clark’s Landing made our day one we will never forget !! – now we just need some of our friends to get married there that way we can attend Clark’s as a guest!!

Clarks Landing Yacht Club should rename itself “Fantasy Weddings on the Water” because that was exactly what we got. Clark’s Landing was the first venue we looked at and honestly we didn’t need to look any further…the venue ambiance speaks for itself and that is just the start. Don and Nicole are simply lovely and professional in every way. They walked us through everything and made the planning and execution of the day stress free and flawless. The level of details that has gone into making Clark’s Landing the venue that it is cannot even hold a candle to the other Jersey Shore wedding venues. My guests are still raving about the incredible service that was provided by the staff. I should also note that with all the things that Clarks offers from the linens, to centerpieces, to beautiful chairs that do not need covers, the overall cost is not much higher then if you went with a lower value venue and had to pay for all those additional services anyway. Don’t second guess yourself go with Clark’s and tell Nicole and Don this happy bride said “hi”. 🙂

You can’t ask for a better venue, better staff, or better location. This is the ultimate venue, the place was designed very thoughtfully, as the owners owned 4 venues beforehand and built this one as their ‘dream venue.’ Don and Nicole from Clark’s Landing are amazing to work with, extremely accomodating, and really help make the day perfect for you. It was a dream wedding for us thanks to these guys!

I wish I could be a guest at my own wedding! It’s been 1 month since my wedding and my guests are still raving about how beautiful and amazing our wedding was at Clarks Landing. The food was delicious and a huge hit amongst our guests. Don and Nicole really make sure that everything is perfect for the bride and groom; they are wonderful. My husband and I said we hope some of our guests decide to get married at Clarks Landing so we can go back as guests. I fell in love with everything there and only wish that another bride and groom can experience as much happiness as we did with Clarks Landing, Don and Nicole!

From the moment I listened to the message from Nicole to set up a visit at Clarks Landing, I knew there was something special about Nicole and Clarks. I felt like I knew her. Clarks Landing was the first venue we looked at. And because of that, the bar was set HIGH for all the other places we looked. Nothing compared or could hold a candle to Clarks Landing. From the first tour you could tell that they got it right, down to the last detail.
Planning a wedding at Clarks was a joy. They were so helpful with the whole process, answering any questions by phone or e-mail right away. They truly took care of everything. Don, Nicole and staff made us feel like we were the only people that mattered. Some people questioned us getting married on Friday the 13th, but we knew that nothing could go wrong if we were at Clarks Landing! I knew we had nothing to be worried about. When we booked at Clarks we knew we would have the perfect day no matter what but we didn’t realize that it would be even more than we could have dreamed!
Two months later, people keep commenting on how great our wedding was…..how beautiful the venue was, how awesome the lighting was, how delicious and abundant the food was, and how outstanding the staff was!! We had a guest who is an event planner- she commented that it takes a lot to wow her, but Clarks Landing did it! She was so very impressed by everything and loved it! Throughout our wedding we realized that it very easily showed that the Clarks staff enjoys what they do. We had an outdoor ceremony and it was so wonderful to see the staff’s smiling faces as my Dad and I walked out. We wouldn’t change a single thing about our wedding. (Well maybe except for getting to eat the delicious cocktail hour food!) We would do it all again in a heart beat. We aren’t the first and definitely won’t be the last to say that we want to come back and enjoy Clarks Landing as a guest. We are begging our friends to get married at Clarks! True perfection! Thank you to Don, Nicole and staff for an unforgettable day!

Clark’s Landing is more then a venue – it’s a beautiful, magical, dream-like environment filled with the most special, accomodating, sincerely caring team of people who bring your wedding to unbelievable life. The staff is well-trained and genuinely nice. Our guests were pampered and we were treated like royalty. The crew is well-led by Don as assisted by Nicole. Don and Nicole are two lovely people who also create the best weddings ever. Our guests are raving about the experience. The venue is well appointed with the comfort of the guests a first priority. The food is absolutely delicious and abundant, the liquor is top-shelf and the service is impecable. Nice touches like warm towels for the guests as they move from cocktail hour to dinner and then cool towels as the guests are dancing were unexpected and most appreciated. This is just a small example of the things the people at Clark’s think about that exceed all expectations. Every table had their own server and each table’s food was served all at once. As the bride and groom, our server, Caroline, couldn’t have made us feel more special. She was there for us, exclusively throughout the evening. Our wedding was a dream come true!!!We are so eternally grateful to Don, Nicole and the staff at Clark’s Landing for treating us like we were the only wedding they ever had and for making seem like they had been practicing and planning for our wedding for decades.We would be happy to speak to anyone considering Clark’s for their wedding to answer any questions about our experience!!Thank you for everything!!!!
Kris and Chris ~ Wedding: 04/01/2012
I have been procrastinating too long and truly wish I had finished this review earlier but it still feels like it was just yesterday that I had the wedding of my dreams. Our wedding was in March and it truly was the best day of my life. Clarks Landing was the first venue we looked at and I instantly fell in love with it. At first we thought it was out of our budget and ventured to look at many other sites. This proved to be extremely disappointing because there is nothing that even compares to Clarks Landing. Thankfully my fiance, with the help of Nicole, was able to figure out that if we booked in the off season we could make it work. Nicole was there with us every step of the way and was able to help with any question we had, even if it had nothing to do with the reception.
As any bride will tell you, the last week leading up to your wedding is by far the most chaotic. Don and Nicole were beyond accommodating and helped with every last minute change, including a few guest cancellations. When our day finally arrived and we walked into the cocktail hour, I was amazed at how perfect everything looked. Don even helped my mother bustlle my dress before we greeted our guests. Don executed the entire night with ease and made sure we wanted for nothing. Not only did we have so much fun at our wedding but we were also delightfully surprised when Nicole stopped by even though she was off that night. It is more than obvious that Don and Nicole are passionate about what they do and will do everything they can to make you have one of the most memorable days of your life.
Our guests are still raving about our wedding and saying that it was the best wedding that they have ever been to. I would also recommend the uplighting. It was one of our last minute changes and totally worth it because it made the room look even more awesome that it already does. The entire night far exceeded my expectations and any couple would be lucky to have a Clarks Landing wedding.
Katie ~ Wedding: 03/25/2012
Hands down, the BEST wedding venue out there if you are looking for a beachy type wedding. After looking at so many places at the shore and only finding outdated tacky places, we were starting to get discouraged! One day we randomly stumbled across Clarks Landing on line and didn’t really know what to expect as we took the long ride down, since we are not familiar with that section of the shore. Once walking in the door, we knew that our wedding COULD NOT be at any other place-it is absolutely breath taking!
Our wedding at was more amazing than we ever imagined it would be. Don and nicole went above and beyond to make sure that everything for our wedding day was absolutely perfect. Our guests are still talking about the impeccable food and service provided by the staff. We still hear (and our wedding was in November) that “your wedding was the best wedding” from every person in attendance! We hope to be invited to a wedding there so we can finally try the food!!

If I could rate this venue more than 5/5 I would! When I think of Clarks Landing I get tears in my eyes and a HUGE smile on my face all at the same time. Almost 5 months ago all my dreams came true at this one of kind, spectacular venue! For almost 2 months I searched high and low along the south and north jersey shores for a venue to meet my needs, and none of them were what I was looking for. Just when I was about to give up and move my wedding to a “destination” my mom came across Clarks Landing and asked me to give this place one last try. Sure enough we made the trip to Point Pleasant to visit Clarks and the rest was history. From the minute we pulled up to the second we walked into the foyer and saw the gorgeous chandelier, staircase, and cocktail hour room, I knew without hesitation this was the place our fairytale would begin! From that day on Nicole and Don took us under their wing and made us apart of their wonderful family Clarks Landing has established. You are not just a number at this venue you are a friend and feel like you become family. Throughout your planning they are their to answer every question, call, and email. If you don’t know which way to turn, confide in them and you can’t go wrong! They know their job and they do it well! I can’t tell you how many times a simple email from Nicole would make my day and put a smile on my face! She is absolutely amazing and I am so happy she was apart of our special day

To say that Don & Nicole and the entire staff at Clark’s went above and beyond to make our amazing wedding day happen is an understatement! Despite an evacuation 24 hours prior, the entire staff showed up on Sunday evening with smiles on their faces, ready to go. Aside from a few empty tables of guests who weren’t able to make it due to Irene, not a thing was amiss. The rooms looked elegant & beautiful, the food was superb, and the service was outstanding. The ice sculpture & cake even made it there! One would never know that hurricane Irene had blown through only the night before. We can not THANK YOU enough for making our wedding day dreams true! It was a day that none of us will ever forget, and almost a year later, guests are still telling us what an incredible time they had! I never tire of hearing that it was the “best wedding I’ve ever been to”.
Jules ~ Wedding: 08/28/2012
Clarks Landing is the best! As soon as you see the place, you will be in awe. But a place is only as good as their service, and let me tell you…Clarks Landing has the BEST service around! They are classy, fun, completely accommodating, and simply amazing!
Throughout the whole process Don and Nicole were there to answer any email I sent and every question I had. It didn’t matter if the question was as simple as an ice cream topping or the time of the sunset…they were on it!
Not only that, Don and Nicole got to know you and your family. I never once felt like my wedding was not important. In fact, I felt the opposite…I felt almost like family!
The wedding itself was perfect..the cocktail hour will blow your mind.The food is delicious and the views are jaw dropping.the new lighting they put in is awesome..but the servers are what stood out the most to me. My one friend needs gluten free food. Upon telling the server, her food was made gluten free and delivered at the exact same time everyone else’s was. My friend said this was the ONLY wedding this has ever happened at. In fact, at dessert time, the server brought her out her own fruit platter without any prompting because he remembered my friend could not have anything with wheat.
The Clarks Landing servers even danced with me and truly seemed to be enjoying the night!
If you want a place that is classy, beautiful, welcoming, warm, and amazing…this is your place.
At the end of the night I was actually envious of the servers, that they got to work with such amazing people at such a beautiful venue! I may need to apply for a summer job!
Thank you to Don, Nicole and the entire Clarks Landing staff for giving us the best night of our lives!

My husband Patrick and I had our reception at Clark’s Landing Yacht Club and it was truly a fairytale wedding! We knew from the moment we stepped foot into Clark’s Landing that it was the right place for us. Don and Nicole were professional and on point with every detail leaving us feeling confident that all of our plans would be carried out exactly as we wanted.
On our wedding day Nicole, Don and the Clark’s Landing staff did an amazing job making sure our every need and the needs of our guests were met! The atmosphere is breathtaking and the food was fantastic. Walking into both the cocktail hour and ballroom you could see the attention to detail. Everything was crisp right down to the napkin folds. We showed up on our wedding day and did not have to concern ourselves with anything but enjoying the day!
Our friends and family still talk about our wedding, calling it the wedding of the century! We would absolutely recommend Clark’s Landing Yacht Club to anyone looking for a location for their wedding reception.
Megan and Patrick B. – Wedding September 30, 2011
Cannot say enough about Clarks Landing. The staff is amazing, the food is out of this world and the venue is beautiful. Don does an amazing job, handling every request with ease. People were amazed by the cocktail hour and then completely blown away when we went into the main room for dinner. The food was amazing, presentation perfect and an amazing and attentive staff. Highly, Highly recommend this place if you want your dream wedding.
Danielle and Jason ~ Wedding: 07/23/2011
Clarks Landing Yacht Club is the most beautiful venue I have ever been to. I knew I would be booking with them when I first walked in the door. It is breathtaking beautiful. The decor, the chandeliers, the center pieces, the view, amongst many other things were indescribable! My guests are still raving about our wedding and how amazing the service and food were! My cousin said it was the best steak he has ever eaten. I cannot thank Don & Nicole and the rest of the incredible Clarks staff enough! Our day was just perfect (even if it was 100 degrees!). I want someone I know to get married there, so I can go back!
Dinas722 ~ Wedding: 07/22/2011
If you are looking for a place to just walk into and have the magic automatically unfold, Clarks Landing is your venue. Walking into the cocktail room is literally jaw dropping and breathtaking. From the trendy yet sophisticated look of the room, to the views of the water and the marina, it’s impossible to think anything else can compare, and then you walk upstairs to the ballroom. The bright lights from the windows combined with the palatial décor will stop you in your tracks. The circular dance floor makes the entire ballroom feel like you are close to your guests.
