[Wedding] Lauren & Mike – Mallard Island Yacht Club in Manahawkin, NJ

It has been several years since I last set foot on the beautiful grounds of the Mallard Island Yacht Club. With it’s quaint little chapel overlooking one of the most gorgeous views that the Jersey Shore has to offer, it’s hard not to love this place. For weeks prior to their wedding, everyone was keeping a close eye on the weather forecasts, as Lauren & Mike nearly found themselves (and their wedding day) smack dab in the middle of one of the most ferocious hurricane seasons the mid-Atlantic had ever seen. Although a torrential downpour certainly wouldn’t have put a damper on this particular celebration, a stroke of good luck brought us one of the most perfect days for a wedding. This wedding featured some snazzy dance moves, literally every 90s hit from my adolescence, and some of the most amusing speeches I’ve heard in a while. We’re so happy for these two, and we wish them both a lifetime of love, laughter and Springsteen :).
