I can’t say enough about Peconic Bay Yacht Club! We visited many sites before choosing one for our wedding across the North Fork, Rhode Island and Hudson Valley and we are so happy with our choice! Not only are the grounds and venue impressive, but the staff and all of John’s team was flawless. The food was great and the team was very flexible and accommodating . If they have a date you are looking for, book it! You won’t regret it!
My wife and I got married in October at the Peconic Bay Yacht Club and the wedding was nothing short of perfect. John is the best in the business and he and his staff were incredible throughout the process and made everything from the first stages of planning to the wedding and everything in between so fun and stress-free. We have gotten so many compliments and rave reviews from friends and family about the venue. We had so much fun, the food was incredible, the setup with bars and staff was perfect, and everything else about the day was just so special. We could not imagine the best day of our lives happening anywhere else.
I am eternally grateful for having gotten to feel like one of the most special people on earth because of John and his team at PBYC. If it weren’t for their kindness, insane amount of effort and attention to detail, willingness to go above and beyond, I know our wedding wouldn’t have been as amazing. John has such a gift in doing what he does for a living. If you were on the fence in considering PBYC, let me tell you this — you should consider this your sign to do it NOW. You will not find a better team, a more beautiful location, and holy SMOKES… no better food, anywhere else. Thank you John and the entire team at PBYC for everything you did to make our wedding a weekend and experience one we’ll never forget and our guests will never stop talking about. TEAM PBYC FOREVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
We got married in November, so there were also a lot of ‘question marks’ leading up to the wedding – What will the weather be like? Could we get married outside? John helped guide us along the way and even let us make the final call (inside vs. outside) the day before the wedding, which was SO appreciated! (And to be clear, there was no wrong option – the entire venue inside and out is spectacular)! It just so happened to be a beautiful November day, so my husband and I were lucky enough to get married on the beautiful outdoor deck on the second floor of the Peconic Bay Yacht Club – and it was magical! The venue and the views are just beautiful, especially around sunset!
We also can’t say enough good things about the food – the cocktail hour was a hit, and the dinner was fabulous. We had so many guests tell us how good the food was! Our favorites were the lobster rolls, sushi sliders, baby lamb chops and fish taco sips & bites for cocktail hour, and we selected the local bass (which was in season), the short rib, and the lemon arugula ravioli for our dinner options. We tried all three… and OMG – they were all so so good. We also had the afterparty on site (in the speakeasy-style basement), which was a hit. Late night chicken tendies and fries were the icing on the cake!
Looking back the standout was really the staff. Everyone was extremely friendly and helpful, and made the Peconic Bay Yacht Club feel like our home for the weekend. If you’re thinking of selecting the Peconic Bay Yacht Club for your wedding venue… DO IT! It will be a day or night to remember forever!!
PBYC is truly AMAZING! We had the most dreamy, magical and perfect day!!! We were originally booked at another venue that canceled on us 6 months out. We found PBYC and immediately fell in love. We are certain everything happens for a reason and can’t imagine having gotten married anywhere but PBYC.
John was fantastic from the start – so patient in answering all our questions and making sure everything was exactly how we envisioned it. Heather, our bridal assistant, was THE best! She was so conscious of our wants/needs throughout the whole day and was ready to help with anything.
We had absolutely no stress with PBYC. We gave them our vision and they brought it all together seamlessly. Every aspect of our day and everything leading up to it was 10/10 fantastic. We are still on cloud 9 from our perfect day. It really was a dream come true!
To all future brides, choose Peconic Bay Yacht Club!! You will not regret it! Multiple people have told us it was the most perfect wedding they have ever attended and a large part of that is due to PBYC!
Firstly, the setting is beautiful and the views over the water are stunning. We had the most gorgeous sunset during our wedding. The club itself is also beautiful and perfectly set up to host weddings. From the lawn overlooking the water for the ceremony, gorgeous second-floor deck for cocktail hour, stunning ballroom with large open windows, and basement bar for the afterparty, it couldn’t be more perfect.
What really sets PBYC apart though is the staff. John is INCREDIBLE- so well organized and thoughtful about each aspect of the wedding. There are so many little details that we would not have thought about if not for John. He is also unbelievably responsive which is so important during the planning process! Everyone on staff is equally amazing. You truly cannot beat the catering- we had so many people raving about the food! I also had a bridal attendant throughout the day who was wonderful.
We had my daughter’s perfect wedding here several weeks ago and I cannot recommend the PBYC more highly! John O is so well organized and the venue is stunning! Our guests have been raving nonstop about this fairy tale event!
My youngest daughter was married this last spring at the Peconic Bay Yacht Club and her reception was held there immediately afterward. I cannot say enough good things about the professionalism and attentiveness of the staff. The entire afternoon and evening preceded in an extremely well-organized way.
But most especially we had the happy opportunity to deal with John. John was an ultimate professional giving us good advice and gently guiding us through the entire process. When the big day came the venue was beautiful. Not just the views of the bay but inside and out the various rooms were beautifully decorated and carefully maintained. The evening went on without a hitch. Timely and professional service are the hallmarks. During the cocktail hour the passed hors-d’oeuvres, the raw bar, and a few other excellent choices such as the market table were all spot on. The entrées were all very tasty, fresh, and generous. After a lifetime of weddings, this was among the very, very best. We received nothing but compliments thanks to John and his fine staff.
We were married on 5/14/22. John is amazing to work with and was only outshined by the venue and food! I cannot recommend this venue enough. John went above and beyond in every aspect including day of issues which he had nothing to do with! A month later, and our guests are still raving about the food and service. My high expectations were blown away. The most common comment I received is “The food was the best wedding food that we’ve ever had” I have to agree with this! I wholeheartedly recommend this venue!
We got married at PBYC on 6/4/22. We just returned from our honeymoon, and the first thing I wanted to do was write a review!
John and the staff at PBYC are absolutely incredible. We had the most phenomenal day, filled with so much love and happiness. Our guests are still raving saying this was one of the best weddings they ever attended. Every single little detail was well thought out, and beautifully executed.
John was extremely knowledgeable, and such a pleasure to work with. He was so helpful throughout the planning process, and made sure everything went seamlessly leading up to (and the day of) our wedding. John is so kind, and made sure our families were well taken care of throughout the day.
The food was on another level. Everything was beyond delicious, and presented so beautifully. My husband and I took our photos before our ceremony, so we got to enjoy the incredible cocktail hour with our guests. The deck overlooking the water is such a picturesque location, and we lucked out with the most gorgeous early summer day. The space is so beautifully designed, and the views are incredible.
We could not recommend this venue (and John) enough. John and his staff made sure everything ran flawlessly, and helped make our day everything we dreamed of and more! The icing on the cake was the after-party in the basement. It was such a perfect way to wrap up the most incredible day.
Thank you John & PBYC team for everything! We love you!
Peconic Bay Yacht Club proved to be the amazing venue we first laid eyes on so long ago and we are so happy our wedding was there. Everything was perfect, great thanks to John, the GM there and for helping us throughout the whole process. He is very attentive and makes you feel like the only couple he’s working with. The day of attendant (Heather) was truly remarkable as well. PBYC staff were all phenomenal and we are so thankful!
To say that our wedding at the PBYC was the wedding of our dreams is an understatement…words cannot begin to describe how exceptional the entire experience was!
From the outset, we knew we had made the right decision when picking our venue. Working with John over the last year was an absolute pleasure. His kindness, support, experience, and sense of humor made the entire process easy. Despite the fact that the last year and a half has been beyond difficult dealing with COVID, health restrictions, social distancing and countless unknowns, John was always there with a smile, a joke, and reassurances for us. Any questions we had were addressed immediately. By the time our wedding came around we were beyond confident that everything was going to run smoothly.
And then came our wedding day. It was truly beautiful and while the weather certainly played a role in that, the Yacht Club itself was the perfect setting. Everything looked beautiful! John and the staff at the PBYC work hard to make the place an absolutely stunning venue, from the lawn overlooking the bay where we had our ceremony, to the upstairs patio where our guests enjoyed the best cocktail hour imaginable, to the main dining room with it’s picture perfect views of the marina and greater bay beyond. Pictures are just starting to roll in and they are stunning!
We also have to note how amazing the entire staff working that day were. Our guests are still remarking on how fabulous the service was. No one wanted for anything. We were fortunate enough to have Hillary work with us as our bridal attendant that day; she was phenomenal! She was always there at our side whenever we needed a drink, a bite to eat, or just a reminder to take some time for ourselves if we needed to. Thanks to her, John, and everyone else, we were able to relax, enjoy our family and friends, and have the best time ever.
We cannot begin to thank John and everyone at the PBYC for making our special day an amazing one with memories that we will treasure for years to come!
Everything was beyond perfect from start to finish. You and your team exceeded all expectations and I’m so grateful for your attention to detail at every point in the day.
The boys had an absolute blast in the basement and my girls felt completely spoiled upstairs all morning.
My guests are still raving about the food and the service received during the reception. Several people have said it was the best filet mignon they have ever had! You guys do amazing work and our wedding was truly the best day of our lives!
Coming out of a challenging year, ELIH Foundation began to plan our “Sailing into Summer” fundraising event to support Stony Brook Eastern Long Island Hospital, which would take place only 7 weeks later at Peconic Bay Yacht Club. This gala was an event on a grand scale and supported by many donors.
John Ovanessian and his diligent team at Peconic Bay Yacht Club put the time and effort in making the event such a success in our short time frame. Between the flavorful menu offerings, picturesque views of the bay and the elegant yet local charm of the event space; the Peconic Bay Yacht Club was nothing short of amazing! John’s dependable work-ethic from start to finish made this event come to life. Although we were not surprised, his attention to detail was flawless and it was heaven working with him. Planning this event with John was seamless. He was so responsive and very accommodating as details changed throughout the planning process and during the event. The event was a magical evening and more than exceeded our expectations.
Having our wedding on July 4th at Peconic Bay Yacht Club was the easiest decision we made. From the moment we stepped into the stunning venue, we were greeted with the warmest welcome from John and it felt like home. We were blown away by the beauty of the property, the stunning views, the character of each floor, and the creative ways you can use the venue. Most importantly what really stood out was how amazing the hospitality was.
My husband and I got married at PBYC on 6/11/21 and our wedding was an absolute dream. We knew we wanted to work with John within 5 minutes of meeting him, before he even brought us on a tour of the property…..the venue itself is beyond beautiful and lends itself to so many aesthetics. The food was incredible, as was the staff that so graciously welcomed our family and friends. My husband and I had the best night of our lives! And it is even more rewarding to have our guests share their amazing experience!! We are still receiving phone calls/messages saying what a wonderful day it was! THANK YOU PBYC for bringing our dream wedding day to life!
Thank you, thank you, thank you John and staff at Peconic Bay Yacht Club!!! Rating out of 10? 100! Food was fantastic along with every detail upon our request! Superb! Our guests are still raving!!
PBYC is a dream!
Peconic Bay Yacht Club is truly a dream venue. The staff is absolutely fabulous. The GM, John, was extremely responsive, always accommodating, and truly made me feel like family. He completely sold the venue for me, I felt a weight lift from my shoulders because I knew he would be on top of anything that may occur on my wedding day, or leading up to it. Unfortunately, due to COVID I ended up canceling my June wedding. The venue was truly amazing through my cancelation process and I was so thankful after I had heard so many horror stories about brides from other venues. I wish I could of had my big day there, but I know in the future I will be sure to host an event there. If i could give them more than five stars I would.
