With the help of their excellent wedding planners at Lovely Day Styling, Tabitha and Scott’s wedding took the Mantoloking Yacht Club to the next level. The gorgeous mint and peach palette was a unique alternative for the waterfront celebration that perfectly embodied the lightness of a summer wedding in New Jersey. Tabitha looked like a princess in her Monique Lhuillier wedding gown, and each of her bridesmaids wore a coral dress of their choice for a mismatched, yet romantic look.
Tabitha and Scott
Mantoloking Yacht Club, Mantoloking, New Jersey
While we wanted to somewhat maintain a “beach” theme because of the setting, we also didn’t want it to be overly “beachy.” There are many people who have gotten married at the same church, with a reception to follow at the Yacht Club, but we wanted to make sure our wedding felt unique and personal. The first way in which we made that happen was by asking my bridesmaids to each pick out their own dress from the same coral color palate. The end result was amazing. All of my friends looked beautiful in the dress they had picked out for themselves, and I loved how each dress reflected each of their personalities. From there, with the help of Colleen & Beth at Lovely Day Styling, we selected small & personal details to make the whole day feel special.
I had two favorite moments – the first was when we all took the boat out following the ceremony and before the cocktail reception. It gave us a moment to soak everything in, and also gave us a cool & breezy relief from the unexpected heat that day!!
My second favorite moment was the dance my brothers organized for me during the reception. It was somewhat of a “surprise”, but since I have three brothers they wanted to do something special for me during the wedding. I got the chance to dance with each of them to the song “Rosalita” by Bruce Springsteen, and the whole (somewhat uncoordinated) dance had everyone at the reception laughing, and kicked off the dancing for the rest of the night.

To be honest, everyone we worked with was amazing. From Lovely Day Styling, Ryan Brown Catering, and our florist Jakki… we couldn’t have done it without any of them!! They truely knew what they were doing and guided us throughout the whole process.
