You guyssssss… we are so BEYOND excited to share Jen & Pete’s Mantoloking Yacht Club wedding with you! This wedding is actually from last summer but we were anxiously awaiting the possibility of publication. It has since been published (in print, yay!) in New Jersey Bride Magazine and now that wedding season has calmed down we have time to put together all the images from their gorgeous wedding and adorable love story. Jen completely nailed her seashore chic theme for her bayside wedding. This day was just dripping with pretty florals. From the unique bouquets for each bridesmaid to the centerpieces, chair backs, bar, and that unforgettable driftwood and floral wreath over the dance floor, Faye and Renee were truly impressive. There was a trolley ride and an arrival by boat to the reception that definitely added to the Jersey shore atmosphere. My favorite thing about Jen and Pete was how much they wanted to enjoy this day and truly be present with all of their friends and family. It was hard to pull them away for the few moments during sunset, but who can blame them? The company was wonderful and with a little help from Social Life Events and The Nocturnes the party was an absolute blast! I hope you enjoy these as much as we do. I seriously can’t stop smiling every time I see them! OH, and also, a big CONGRATS to these two as they’ve since welcomed a beautiful baby girl! Wishing so much love and luck to you all, enjoy!
Getting ready at home in Mantoloking, NJ.
WEDDING CEREMONY AT ALL SAINTS CHURCH IN BAYHEAD
We LOVE this charming little Episcopal church in Bayhead, but there are NO photos allowed during the ceremony… not even the first kiss! Lucky for us they are super sweet and the ceremony exits are always awesome, especially Jen and Pete’s!
Portraits on the dock and a boat ride to the reception
Besides being close to home, and always having a fun relaxed vibe, another reason we love the yacht club weddings here at the Jersey Shore is that they often include a boat ride entrance to the reception or a trolley ride. These guys had both! It’s definitely unique and always fun!
WEDDING RECEPTION AT MANTOLOKING YACHT CLUB
All we can say is WOW! Jen and her mom did such a phenomenal job working with Faye and Renee and Social Life Events to bring this seashore chic theme to life. This place was drenched in florals! The blue glassware was a perfect addition and the gigantic floral and driftwood wreath that hung over the dance floor was to-die-for! The Nocturnes rocked the house as people took turns partying on the dance floor and chilling outside on the water. The overall feel and flow of this wedding was nothing short of magic.
