Vendor of the Month - June 2016
601 Ocean Ave Avon By The Sea, NJ
Back in May, we had the wonderful opportunity to cover a wedding at The Columns in Avon-By-The-Sea, NJ and I cannot say enough wonderful things about this restaurant!
The Columns has the great trifecta: the location is killer (across the street from the beach and the Avon boardwalk), the food is mouthwatering, and the owners are some of the nicest people I've ever worked with.
It may sound like a weird comment, but they really were delightful to work with. Sadly not all venues we work at treat us with the respect and understanding that Allison and the rest of the owners/staff at The Columns did. It not only makes us happier, but it makes our job easier! They gave us a heads up for anything important that was about to happen so we didn't miss anything and made sure we got hot food.
So word to the wise -- if your venue treats your other vendors with respect and courtesy, everyone has a better time!
They worked with our couple to make sure things ran smoothly, even when gusty winds and rain clouds threatened their beach ceremony. The beach ceremony was moved to inside the pavilion on the boardwalk and the owners and their teenage sons carried over plants from the restaurant to dress it up a little.
But the great part about The Columns is that it's not just a wedding or large party venue. They do smaller events as well like bridal showers or birthday parties, along with just being a great place to grab a bite to eat when you're down the shore (hello Lobster-palooza on Thursday nights this summer!), and not to mention the live music on the weekends (https://thecolumnsnj.com/live-music/)!
Looking forward to our next event at The Columns (and hopefully a few visits just for food this summer)!
