Mother of the Bride

CYCCM is the best wedding venue in Cape May! Our daughter got married on 10/10/15 and had the wedding of her dreams. Aesthetically, it has panoramic views of the Cape May Harbor and is the backdrop of the most gorgeous sunsets. Her wedding photographs are a testimony to the beauty this venue possesses. This venue allows wedding guests to move around instead of being confined to a single room. It has a great flow combining both indoor and outdoor space. However, this is only the starting point of why it is such a perfect wedding venue. Kristin is absolutely the best event manager as she pays close attention to detail and knows her venue so well.Their recommended vendors for florist, DJ and bakery were top notch.There are also options to rent the use of the fire pit and a pergola from a club member for the wedding ceremony. Kristin was so easy to work with and when she promises to "take care of you" she exceeds all expectation. There is no need to hire a day of wedding planner as she ensures that everything goes as planned. It is evident that she loves what she does. Her staff was hard working and very accommodating to our wedding guests. Many thanks to Executive Chef Harry for the phenomenal food that our guests truly enjoyed! There were so many options from which to choose and we have received many compliments from our guests. In our opinion, this was the ideal venue for our daughter''''s wedding and we would highly recommend CYCCM as a wedding venue. Kristin and Harry Gleason will make your wedding day special as well as memorable!

I can''''t even begin to describe how amazing this venue is. From the day we stepped inside, we knew this is where we had to get married. The view is unlike anything else you will get in Cape May. From the minute we booked, Kristin was the biggest help in the world with anything that we needed, she was just as excited as we were about our big day. Everything we needed, they made happen. The day of the wedding went off without a hitch and everyone had the most amazing time. We had a wedding of almost 200 people and everyone has been raving to me about how fantastic the food was. The sunset is gorgeous there and will make for the best photos of the day as well. The staff went out of their way to make sure this was the best day of our lives.

We stumbled upon this place after a bad experience with the Washington Inn (the worst!), and thank God we did because it was absolutely perfect. We did photos out on the dock, cocktail hour on the upstairs deck with a spectacular view of the sun setting over the bay, and then we had the dance floor just inches from the water. The fire pit was great, too. Kristin is THE BEST! She made sure we had all our bases covered in the planning stages, and she made sure everything ran smoothly on the big day. I''''m a worrier, but I didn''''t have to worry at all with her in charge. She says she loves doing weddings, and you can tell it''''s true. Harry''''s food was phenomenal, of course, and he was great to work with also. Overall, the perfect place - and more affordable than most comparable venues in the shore towns.

We are so happy that we chose the CYCCM for our September wedding. We visited almost every venue in Cape May and we knew CYCCM was the best choice because of the gorgeous views, lovely venue and delicious menu. Kristin is so easy to work with and she wants every bride''''s wedding to be perfect! Because of the weather, we had our wedding in the tented area inside but it still looked gorgeous even though it wasn''''t the outside wedding I expected. The food was incredible. We had so many compliments on how amazing and perfectly cooked everything was. Kristin also runs a tight ship and service was fantastic. We''''ve gone to several weddings where you wait a long time for your meal but not at the yacht club. Everything ran so smoothly. We received so many compliments on the venue. It''''s a beautiful, intimate venue and I can''''t imagine choosing another place in Cape May to get married. Thank you Kristin and Harry!

We loved working with Kristin and Harry to make our big day special, personal, and unique. The weather threatened our dreams of an outdoor ceremony, but the YC team made it happen with very little stress to me. Harry helped us customize the timing, the format, and the menu items to ensure the event was uniquely ours. We chose the CYCCM because of the location, the views, and the mini beach. The weather took most of that away, but if I could do it all over again, I would still choose CYCCM because of the accommodating and professional staff and the amazing food! Their space is customizable to the size of your group, and my guests all loved the opportunity to spend the weekend in Cape May. I would highly recommend a wedding at the YC!

The club is right on the water - the views were fabulous. The food was incredible - the chef worked with us to develop a delicious menu beyond our expectations.

I just wanted to let you both know how happy Julia and I were with everything you did to make Nicole''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''s wedding day so special. Being in the restaurant business, I know what a feat it was to produce the quality of food that we were served. The raw bar was awesome, the hors d''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''ouevres were terrific (especially the giant lollipop lamb chops) and the main course was perfect. I had numerous guests tell me how nicely done their filets were and the stuffed shrimp was just as good. Your attention to detail was so important and much appreciated. From the tent to the dessert bar to the coffee bar - - everything went perfectly. And toward the end of the party, when Nicole did not want it to end, you were so gracious to allow us to continue the extra time. We got rave reviews for the event and the food from so many people.
Thanks again. A+

Kathy and Tony''''''''s Wedding Reception at the Yacht Club was absolutely wonderful! Superlatives apply to everything. You did a beautiful job for us! The staff were all good at what they do and very nice people. Harry''''''''s food was incredibly delicious! His hors d''''''''oeuvres were the best I''''''''ve ever had.

The setting couldn''''''''t have been better. The club, the tent, the upstairs, the water, the perfect weather..........all of it was unbeatable.

When Kathy found The Corinthian, she found the perfect place for their wedding.

We''''''''ve been very preoccupied. There was a lot of family staying in Cape May for the week after the wedding. Things are getting back to normal, so that''''''''s why you''''''''re just hearing for us just now.

Kathy is planning to come see you the next time she is down. She''''''''s reluctantly back to work already.

Thank you for everything, Kristin. I wish we could do it all again.

 
Andrew & Christina 

Words can’t begin to express our gratitude to both of you and the entire staff at the Corinthian Yacht Club. Your efforts made our wedding celebration unbelievable! From our first encounter we had such confidence in you and your team. Being in the restaurant business, we tend to have high expectations for food and service. After we met, we were sure that the quality of service and food would exceed our standards.

However, we never could have imagined that your abilities would have been tested like they were. We thought we had everything planned perfectly… from the menu, to the décor, to the entire sequence of events. Little did we know that we were all in for a surprise, when a nor’easter struck a few days before our wedding. We were all sure that it would blow over, but as we got closer, it was evident that this storm was going to stall for what seemed to us a record duration. It became very clear that a change of plans was necessary.

Kristen, you and your staff worked tirelessly to adjust everything from the location of cocktail hour and the table arrangements, to ensuring that the tent, the dance floor & the linens were PEREFECT!!! We were so worried that the wedding we had envisioned would be impossible, but when we walked into the yacht club on our wedding day, we were floored!!!

We were completely overwhelmed by how meticulously everything had been executed. The impromptu seating area on the patio worked out better than we could have ever imagined. It provided the older folks at our wedding a comfortable view of the dance floor, making them feel part of the celebration.

Thank you for bringing in the heat lamps at the last minute even though, like you said, once everyone started dancing they had to be turned off. Also, we have to mention how amazing it was that your staff was able to keep the dance floor dry (without our guests even noticing,) when the torrential downpours came through.

You basically did everything humanly possible to ensure we had an incredible wedding reception. It was so much fun!! Our friends and family can’t stop talking about how amazing the night was!

Harry, aside from the unbelievable venue and overall atmosphere, the food was over the top! Since Andrew is a chef, we were expected to provide incredible food at our wedding, which you undeniably accomplished! You and your staff prepared fabulous hot and cold hors’ devours and a land and sea duet for the main course, that our guest are still talking about. The braised short ribs & crab imperial stuffed shrimp were unique and DELICIOUS!

It is impossible for us to fully express how grateful we are to both of you and the entire CYCCM staff for how incredible you made our wedding day. We are so fortunate to have experienced such an amazing day at such a wonderful venue with such an attentive staff! We love you guys!!
