@alison914:  I think the second one is the “safe” option. Regardless of weather you will be okay there. We had our reception in a hotel grand ballroom. No windows or outside light, but it gave me the opportunity to use LOTS of candles to create a romantic mood 🙂

I think the second one… if your wedding will be later in the evening/at night, having water views may not necessarily matter as much anyway if it’s dark out? You can do some pretty amazing decor stuff that will make people not even think twice about a view!! Also, the guests will be eating and dancing and things like that, at most they would go “ooooohhh, ahhhhh. Oh look they are cutting the cake/let’s go dance/let’s go eat!” Just my opinion!

Just wanted to say I’ve been to Marina Del Rey in the Bronx for a party and thought it was beautiful. I think it’d be a great spot for a wedding, and it sounds like the safer choice between the 2, anyway.

Sounds like the second option.

What time is your wedding?  If most of it will be in daylight, a view might be nice.  But, if most of it is happening at night, who cares about the view?

yeah, i agree with pp.  the second venue sounds like the safer option.  you get the best of everything.  a gazebo that is close, no worries about weather, a view for cocktail hour and then a nice dark, romantic spot for your reception.  perfect.

Id go with the one with the better reviews, the water front view during dinner would be nice but is it worth it if the service is sub par?
