Emily and Jonathan were one of many couples that had to postpone their wedding from 2020 to 2021 due to the pandemic. Luckily, they chose Crystal Point Yacht Club as their wedding venue who was super accommodating with rescheduling. Crystal Point Yacht Club in Spring Lake, New Jersey is a very beautiful venue that offers an outdoor ceremony space near the water. Crystal Point Yacht Club recently added on a covered pull-through to the front of the venue that makes for a gorgeous portrait spot mid-day when the sun is too bright as well as the evenings for a night shot. Crystal Point Yacht Club also features an on-site motel that makes it super easy for guests to have a place to stay the night of the wedding.
Emily and Jonathan’s wedding day was so beautiful! Their first look took place under the newly added covered pull-through of Crystal Point Yacht Club. These two were both so joyous when they first saw each other as you’ll be able to see in the images below! Their wedding ceremony took place at the outdoor ceremony space that overlooks the marina with a beautiful arch and gorgeous florals. After their short but sweet ceremony, everybody ventured inside for a glorious cocktail hour filled with so many food options, there was literally something for everyone!
Emily informed me that she and Jonathan practiced their first dance at home by watching YouTube videos while they were stuck inside during the pandemic. Their practice definitely paid off well because they mastered the twirl perfectly! I will be the first to tell you as a former bride, it is not an easy task to make a twirl look or feel completely effortless. With that being said, I definitely recommend looking up some YouTube videos like Emily and Jonathan did and practice a few dance moves in your living room before your wedding day!
