Surrounded by the beautiful Barnegat Bay, Mallard Island Yacht Club captivates guests with spectacular views and incredible attention to detail. Once on the property, you are transported to another place where every step you take increases your anticipation of the most exciting day of your life.

From the luscious gardens to the luxurious interiors, this is a place where hopes and dreams become reality.




Guests will savor each bite from the delectable hors d’oeuvres to the fine desserts. Our culinary artisans will create a presentation that is sure to impress.



The “Crown Jewel” of the estate is the luxurious 3,000-sq. ft. Bridal Penthouse that occupies the entire fourth floor. Spend the day getting pampered in the fully equipped in-suite salon complete with leather salon chairs and a spa-like rainfall shower. The bridal penthouse features unsurpassed views of the bay and the beautiful landscaping. There are few words that can prepare you for the experience of entering the Grande Wedding Penthouse Suite. Perhaps you’ll just have to experience it in person!



Our rugged Groom’s shack is a haven of colorful history. Once an army barracks and then a clam shack until being lovingly restored, the Groom and his best men will enjoy this unique setting while getting ready.



Imagine walking down the aisle to meet your groom in front of a grand stone fireplace, surrounded by the glow of candles and crisp bay breezes. Mallard Island Yacht Club offers the opportunity to get married in the charming Boathouse Chapel or on our lush, immaculate lawn.



Sip champagne as you stroll through the lush gardens with views as far as the eye can see or grab a bite to eat under our grand archways and ornate ceilings. Our unique outdoor plaza was modeled after the Rathskeller’s Gothic Architecture and Princeton University. Savor a lavish cocktail hour as your guests explore this beautiful property.



The grand center of the Yacht Club is the elegant ballroom featuring a dramatic tiffany blue ceiling. With seating for 250 guests, this room provides the perfect setting for an enchanted evening. Our ballroom will lead you through stunning French doors onto a scenic atrium. Here, guests can dance the night away under a sparkling array of romantic lighting and magnificent coastal views.



Ten finely appointed suites provide the perfect stay for up to 24 guests. Each room has been enveloped in luxury with amenities such as plasma televisions, WiFi, king sized beds, heated towel warmers, walk-in showers with rain-shower sprays and, of course, coastal views.



As a boy growing up on Long Beach Island, Christopher Vernon, founder of Weddings of Distinction, spent endless hours among the coastal bays and beaches. It was during this time, that he dreamed of sharing his love of the area’s beauty and serenity with others.

Weddings of Distinction and their unique venues are a labor of love, a fulfillment of a dream, a realization of a vision, a tribute to history and an adoration of nature.

These distinguished wedding venues combine the luxury of the present with the elegance of the past and are reminiscent of the Great Gatsby era offering a combination of historic grandeur and the modern amenities of today.
