A Pastel Yacht Club Wedding by Kate Connolly Photography
Posted by Sarah Zlotnick. Filed under Real Weddings

What do you get when you combine a pastel color palette, charming stationery, and a bunch of good friends goofing off? Something not too far from Tina and Chris’s adorable New Jersey wedding, we bet! Set on a cool October day at the Mallard Island Yacht Club, the slightly vintage, sweetly nautical vibe of their celebration immediately caught our eye. From the playful props (love that cornhole set!)  to the custom Rifle Paper Co. wedding garland, everything blends together in such a softly romantic way that we can’t help but be absolutely smitten. Special thanks to Kate Connolly for sharing these lovely images with us!

Tina and Chris are college sweethearts (mutual friends introduced them at a Monmouth University party). “Our relationship is easy-going and filled with love and lots of laughter,” says the bride, and the couple made sure  everyone was in on the sentiment on their big day. Fun photobooth props were passed out to everyone in attendance, and a custom-built cornhole game was set up on the lawn of the reception site.

Dinner was a classy, flower-filled affair inside the Mallard Yacht Club’s main ballroom, but the fun resumed quickly in post-meal festivities. The DJ mixed popular tunes with Spanish music to honor Tina’s Cuban heritage, and after a long night of boogieing down, guests capped off the evening with cigars and a food stand filled with hot dogs and french fries.

“Our ultimate goal was to add as many personal touches to make it fun!” the bride says of her wedding. “I think we succeeded—friends still refer to the day as Tina and Chris’s ultimate dance party!”

  • I wouldn’t say that it is a privilege that every Colombian has. In Bogota we are a lot more protected. In many areas of Colombia still under the control of illegal groups or under the intimidation of corrupt politicians or armed officials, press freedom is still just an aspiration.I think that we have a window of opportunity to write, blog and publish freely on the internet.But there is the risk that if someone finally finds a business model for the web, the big economic conglomerates will conquer the space.Then the idea that all voices are equal on the web and that what counts is the talent and not the money will become less true. Or maybe not. Who knows.
