An elegant seaside mansion that will effortlessly become your home from home during your big day. Is there anywhere more relaxing, more serene, than being beside the sea? Feeling the salty breeze as it whips of the waves. Sinking your toes into the sand on a warm afternoon. Watching the sunset over the ocean with a tall glass of something fresh. Well, at today’s wedding venue, Clarks Landing Yacht Club, all of these ideas can be realized, and more!
If my introduction and the idea of a seaside mansion sounds like your ideal wedding venue, you’re going to love Clarks Landing Yacht Club! Situated in Point Pleasant, and sitting right on the banks of the Manasquan River, just five minutes from Jenkinson’s Boardwalk, this wedding venue is the perfect place for a dreamy waterfront wedding. As a wedding photographer, I’ve had the joy of visiting this elegant New Jersey property on many an occasion, and never have I felt disappointed by its service, or ambiance.
This New Jersey landmark offers a wonderful selection of refined spaces to celebrate in. Inside and out, and all with majestic views of the surrounding Manasquan River. And these views are best embraced with a riverside ceremony. Clarks Landing Yacht Club offers a sophisticated open-air wedding ceremony space that overlooks the marina and is framed by a large white pergola and white Chiavari chairs that form the aisles. Host your outdoor wedding here during sunset, and your wedding photography will be incredible! However, if the weather has turned cold, there is a stunning ballroom available that can be quickly converted into a beautiful indoor ceremony space. Complete with Juliet balcony, and grand entrance to an elegant aisle. And, as you approach the altar, the window shades will gracefully rise to reveal that breathtaking view over the river.
Once vows have been exchanged, and the portraits have been taken, it’s time to party! And your wedding guests will revel in the Riverview Room at Clarks Landing Yacht Club. With the look of an Edwardian Reading room, this classically elegant space offers a sensational display of food stations, circulating canapés, and chefs cooking to order! It’s the perfect place to host your cocktail hour, or sip champagne & have a bite to eat with your loved ones.
After all of that champagne, your guests will be getting hungry. But at Clarks Landing Yacht Club, they won’t have to wait long for their wedding reception dinner. For as soon as cocktail hour finishes, your friends and family will be escorted up to the Grand Ballroom. On many an occasion, I have heard audible gasps from guests, as they enter this decadent room. The luxuriousness and sheer scope of this ballroom simply cannot be expressed with words, it can only be experienced. Italian crystal chandeliers, fine artwork, coffered ceilings and a circular dance floor all combine to create an unforgettable space.
While your wedding guests admire the elegance of the ballroom, the Clarks Landing Yacht Club team will be busy preparing the finest cuisine. Served per table, à la carte style, offering a unique feeling when compared to the average wedding reception. A finer touch and an added detail really help to set this venue apart from other establishments in the New Jersey area. Once dinner has been served, and guests have feasted, it’s time to hit the dance floor! And sitting directly above the sprawling dance floor at Clarks Landing is a state-of-the-art speaker system. This modern setup has been programmed, and placed above the action, in order to encompass the dance floor, and not surround your seated guests. So that’s one less thing for grandma to complain about! The circular design of said dance floor offers an inviting, and all-inclusive feeling for your guests. Allowing them to enjoy the antics of your dancing friends and family while seated, and also easily descend on to the dance floor when their song comes on.
The elegant and exclusive Clarks Landing Yacht Club is not to be missed in your New Jersey wedding venue search. It is five-star sophistication by the sea, with a fine selection of places to exchange your vows and celebrate your nuptials.
