Long Branch, NJ (PRWEB) February 10, 2008
Avenue, a dramatic Parisian-inspired brasserie set along the pristine beaches of Long Branch, NJ, introduces "The Avenue Experience," a modern twist on the traditional wedding day.
The premier wedding package indulges guests with a dramatic combination of Avenue's striking interior spaces, panoramic views of the roaring ocean and extraordinary personalized service to create the perfect setting for saying "I do."
"The Avenue Experience" offers couples a departure from the structured and often stressful wedding day schedule. The ceremony overlooking the ocean is seamlessly woven into a four-hour party, which can be as formal or casual as the couple desires.
Avenue's upscale third-story lounge and sprawling roof deck overlooking the ocean provide an ideal indoor/outdoor setting. There is no assigned seating to agonize over at this party; from the moment guests arrive they can mingle with the couple and each other on luxurious day beds surrounding the roof top pool, or in Avenue's adjoining indoor lounge which also features dramatic ocean views, along with a full bar surrounded by leather upholstered banquettes with limed oak and sandblasted timber finishes.
Guests arrive to an open bar with imported cheeses and Crudités, and then casually gather on the outdoor day beds for a 15-minute wedding ceremony. The party resumes with passed hors d'oeuvres, sumptuous passed petite entrees, carving and pasta stations, and a passed dessert.
Party cuisine is expertly prepared by Antonio Mora, Avenue's Executive Chef. Formerly of Daniel in Manhattan, Mora's signature petite entrees, passed on individual plates, highlight the finest seasonal ingredients prepared to French brasserie standards with a modern and artistic flair.
"The Avenue Experience" is a four-hour event with a cost of $125 per person (plus tax and gratuity) and is available at any time Monday thru Thursday and on Sunday. Friday and Saturday parties can be arranged from 5-9pm. The event includes an open bar, ceremony overlooking the ocean, passed hors d'oeuvres, passed petite entrees, pasta and carving stations, and passed dessert accompanied by coffee and tea.
Avenue's distinct design, the brainchild of London-based architect and interior designer David Collins, features an impressive 25,000 combined square feet of breathtaking space throughout three floors with an ultra-modern layout. The first level houses Avenue restaurant, a brilliant space with dramatic ceilings, a series of snake arm bronze chandeliers and a floor that glistens with pearl colored marble tiles. The third floor space is Avenue's upstairs lounge and sumptuous outdoor rooftop pool deck with unobstructed ocean vistas, an ideal venue for private parties.
Also sharing the location is Le Club, the St. Tropez-inspired private beach club.
This spectacular oceanfront location is also available for photo shoots upon request.
