An Elegant Mallard Island Yacht Club Wedding

Mallard Island Yacht Club is one of our favorite New Jersey wedding venues! It’s elegant, timeless and absolutely stunning. This wedding was no exception. Krista got ready in the Mallard Island bridal suite where she popped champagne with her girls to get the day started. Her Morilee gown from Jans Boutique was glamourous and gorgeous! Krista & James shared a private first look prior to their ceremony in front of the venue. The architecture of the estate makes for a beautiful, grand backdrop for photos. It definitely gives a royal feel!

Bridesmaids rocked burnt orange dresses from Bill Levkoff, which fit perfectly at this Fall wedding. The ceremony took place in the venue chapel. The space was adorned with candles, florals and greenery, with loose flower petals tossed along the aisle. Krista & James had constant smiles on their faces the entire day! They made their way back into the ceremony space after the ceremony for some cozy portraits. Krista rocked a custom leather jacket featuring her new last name.

The reception room was also full of flowers and greenery! Each table setting was complete with a mini bottle of champagne for guests to take as a favor. The four-tier cake from The Bake Works was simple and timeless. The two danced the night away to the sounds of DiNardo Brothers Entertainment. Krista & James, it was an honor photographing your wedding. Thank you for having us!
