The Wilshire Grand Hotel Appears On 7 on Your Side!

The Wilshire Grand HotelOn Friday, August 31, 2012, WABC-TV Channel 7 Eyewitness News aired the story of Matthew & Shea Bailey!

After Hurricane Irene hit the Asbury Park beach where Matt and Shea planned to say ‘I Do’, the couple was invited to The Wilshire Grand Hotel for a second chance at their dream wedding.

Our very own Ed Reagoso made his TV appearance to share his thoughts about the gesture, exclaiming “It’s nice to do good things for good people, doesn’t happen too often!”

On Sunday, August 19, 2012, just one year after Hurricane Irene canceled the couple's wedding, the Bailey's and 250 of their guests danced the night away at our NJ wedding venue at The Wilshire Grand Hotel. “We gave them their wedding, the music, the food, the flowers,” exclaimed Ed Reagoso, General Manager of The Wilshire Grand Hotel.

It was a night to remember under clear skies in New Jersey!
