My husband and I are so happy we chose The Florida Yacht Club for our wedding reception! From meeting with Jessica, the Yacht Clubs Catering Manager, on our first site visit and seeing the ballroom ... Read more that has wood beams and the natural look I was going for, we fell in love and knew this was the perfect venue for us! It provided us with the large ballroom we desired as well as access to the river for photos and the patio access for guests which displayed the spectacular view of the Jacksonville Skyline. The outdoor patio that was available was accessed off of the Astor Room (which is where we held the cocktail hour). There were other options for the cocktail hour, but this was a great choice for our cocktail hour since the guests were on the same level of the ballroom, but still able to go outside via the patio. After selecting The Florida Yacht Club for our February 2018 wedding everything started to fall into place for our big day. Next, we were looking for a wedding planner and were given many recommendations from Jessica. One that came highly recommended was Jennifer Bechan. Jennifer was very familiar with the Florida Yacht Club and was the wife to the Yacht Clubs Chef. Choosing Jennifer to be our coordinator was THE BEST decision! Leading up to the wedding, whenever we had questions or concerns we could easily be in touch with Jennifer Bechan who was always available to us. She was a reliable coordinator and even met with me and my parents on multiple occasions to help us have a smooth wedding day. Between Jennifer coordinating all of our wedding needs and Jessica, the Yacht Clubs coordinator, we were very well taken care of and nothing was missing or forgotten for the day of the wedding. We HIGHLY recommend using the Florida Yacht Club as your reception AND Jennifer Bechan as your wedding coordinator!
