South Jersey Shore Venues We Love! Part 2: Ocean City & Atlantic City
By Caitlin Boshnack
Here is a continuation of our previous blog on South Jersey shore venues! Hope you enjoy our picks and pictures from these real SJ shore weddings!
Ocean City: The Flanders Hotel
The Flanders Hotel in Ocean City is one of the most popular wedding venues in, not only the town, but the county. The brides love the fact that it is located right on the boardwalk and seconds from the beautiful beach. One bride, Kristin, and her groom Philip also loved this venue and chose it for their April 2012 wedding.
Guests of the couples who get married here rave for days about the delicious food by Chef Michael. Their beautiful ballrooms and areas are designed with the 1920′s era in mind and each room has a different appeal to it. The ballroom that Kristin and Philip chose was the Candle Light Ballroom and Kristin’s colors were pink and black and her centerpieces featured pink daises, stargazer lilies and red roses.
The Flanders Hotel offers a variety of services to make your day the most wonderful experience. They have on site and beach ceremony options, a cocktail reception with butlered Hors D’ Oeuvres, a consultation with the award winning chef to create the perfect menu, a beverage Maitre D’ to help create your bar menu and a complimentary suite for the bride and groom for the wedding night.

Atlantic City: One Atlantic
Atlantic City is the perfect place for a SJ shore wedding with all the exciting things to do, great food, and of course, the beach! One Atlantic is one of the most in demand wedding venues in the city. Located on top of Caesar’s Pier, the space is surrounded with windows with views of the ocean and the AC boardwalk. It also has a terrace which makes for great pictures. They handle everything from the ceremony to providing a list of vendors for every part of your day. Tonya & Jerry and Brandi & Matt both held their wedding at this unique venue.
One Atlantic: Tonya & Jerry
Tonya and Jerry had some beautiful “first look” pictures taken out on the terrace before their ceremony at One Atlantic.
Their ceremony was held in front of one of the many windows with a breathtaking view of the lights of Atlantic City!
The couple’s sweetheart table was the center of attention, decorated with blue linens and pearls.
Tonya’s stunning centerpieces featured stargazer lilies, pink and red roses and purple hydrangea, which coincided with the white hydrangea on her sweetheart table.
We love the use of color in this decor! The linens at Tonya and Jerry’s reception were a very unique combination of blue solids and gold and white stripes.
It’s all about the details and Tonya had the cutest details, including her casino favors!
Tonya and Jerry’s cake is one of our favorite parts of this wedding. The gold accent ribbon and swirl design make it a classic piece.
The couple looked gorgeous and One Atlantic really made their wedding a one-of-a-kind occasion.
One Atlantic: Brandi & Matt
Brandi and Matt also had their reception at One Atlantic, however, the look and color scheme created an entirely different atmosphere.
Brandi and Matt took beautiful photos around Caesar’s Pier between their church ceremony and reception at One Atlantic. The bride’s elegant bouquet was a mix of purple and white roses and this color scheme emulates throughout the wedding decor.
More purple and some blue centerpieces turn this venue into a dream by the sea.
We love the beach themed details, especially the sand castle and beach tag place cards!
You can’t have a sea shore wedding without salt water taffy!
Just like to rest of the wedding, the cake was simple and elegant.
A cupcake tower and cigar bar are just a couple examples of how the character of Brandi and Matt shined through on their day.
Brandi and Matt had a unique and creative vision and having their reception at One Atlantic really helped bring it all to life!
