From Limelight Entertainment…Mary and Luke got married at the Crystal Point Yacht Club in Point Pleasant, NJ. This recently renovated and gorgeous venue has huge ballroom windows overlooking the Manasquan River. Mary and Luke wanted that “beachy” and “down-the-shore” vibes this venue has to offer. It was the perfect venue for Mary and Luke to tie the knot! What a gorgeous bride, Mary was all smiles while getting ready. Looking absolutely stunning, Mary chose to have her hair down with classic beach waves. Nicole of Artemis Salon did a fantastic job with this very simple and elegant hair style. The overall style was finished off with a jeweled hair piece that pulled some of Mary’s hair away from her face. Her three bridesmaids had their hair styled in three unique looks: half-up half-down, bun, and side curled. Everyone looked so beautiful!! Tears of joy and so much love filled the room when Mary and Luke shared their special moment during their first look. Sweet moments before the ceremony happened, the couple spent some alone time together to just take it all in and to have that moment with one anther. What a gorgeous day for love!! The blue sky overhead and the sun shinning down, Mary and Luke shared their vows outside in the ceremony space at Crystal Point Yacht Club. Beth, Luke’s cousin, married the two as all their loved ones cheered for joy as the couple shared their first kiss as husband and wife.
Crystal Point Yacht Club was the first banquet facility Mary and Luke visited, and they immediately fell in love the moment they walked in. Not only did the panoramic views of the Manasquan River and the renovated ballroom captivate their hearts, but the staff, too, was incredibly friendly and helpful throughout the whole process. Mary and Luke really wanted the gorgeous water views as the back drop to be their wow-factor for their ceremony, so they decided to only decorate their ceremony space with white folding chairs accented with baby’s breath aisle markers.
Mary tried on many beautiful dresses, but didn’t get the “this is the one” feeling until she went to Seng Couture. The bride decided on a lace Martina Liana gown with plunging v-neckline, sheer side cutouts, illusion tulle, and lace back, complete with buttons and sequins for the perfect amount of sophisticated sparkle. Luke sported a navy blue Calvin Klein suit with a white dress shirt. He tied in a subtle nautical theme by wearing a navy Vineyard Vines tie with whales.
Jackie Marino of Limelight Entertainment captured the wedding day events flawlessly. The couple raved that Jackie was organized and personable, making the planning process a breeze. “All of our photos were taken at Crystal Point Yacht Club and I loved the variety of locations we had to choose from. Jackie is absolutely amazing! From the moment we met her, we knew that she had to be our photographer. She is so easy going and makes the whole process a breeze. Jackie is beyond organized and truly cares for all her couples. We can’t wait to work with her again in the future!”
“We LOVED our DJ Chris Marino, from Limelight Entertainment! He kept the dance floor filled all night and we are still receiving compliments on the mix of the songs that were played at the wedding! We are so happy that we included the photo booth, from Limelight Entertainment, as well because our guests had so much fun and we have a scrapbook of all of our photos to look back on! We also decided to have an exit station, as our guests were leaving, which had pork rolls sandwiches, sliders, & pretzels- what a hit with our guests!”
