The Crescent Beach Club is a breathtaking venue, providing a destination wedding without ever leaving New York. With our beautiful white sand beach, the magnificent blue waters of the Long Island Sound, spectacular sunsets, and gourmet dining, The Crescent Beach Club provides a memorable once in a lifetime experience.
Imagine your ceremony on the beach in the most romantic background conceivable. Envision walking down the aisle on our boardwalk in the sand, surrounded by beautiful blue water and palm trees - a backdrop that most couples only dream about. Then, the cocktail hour features a steel drum calypso band playing the sounds of the Caribbean. The reception follows in our grand ballroom, a room designed to accentuate the beauty of a waterfront affair. High ceilings and floor-to-ceiling windows overlook the beach where extraordinary sunsets are experienced nightly. When the dancing concludes, an after-party back down on the beach completes the evening, with an open bar, additional bar food, and light music. Tiki torches and fire pits light up the night sky and guests chat about enjoying the best wedding they’ve ever attended.
Our Name & Location: The Crescent Beach Club is located in Bayville, NY, a residential beach town on the North Shore of Long Island. The Crescent got its name from the local beach (formerly Crescent Beach) due to the shape of the land looking like a crescent moon!
Our History: When the building was purchased by today’s owner, it was a traditional beach club open to members only – with a sauna, pool, gym, spa, and restaurant. Back in those days, private events and weddings could only be held by members of the club. However, catering began to take off, and management decided to remove the restrictions of exclusivity for catered events. It was then that The Crescent became what it is today – a year-round destination venue, hosting only one wedding at a time. No longer a beach club, the swimming pool was removed and converted into what is today our indoor cocktail hour space. We also began shipping in white sand and Florida-native palm trees in May each year to give our beach that one-of-a-kind tropical paradise feel.
Our Team: We are a small office with a great personality, and we hope that you’ll feel right at home with our Crescent family! We feel that it is so important to have big laughs and tremendous fun together – so from the moment you walk into our offices to the moment you make your grand “just married” exit, you’ll be feeling the love from every member of our staff.
