After corresponding with our friends at Eastern European Photography, we at Hotels Unlimited had to share some of these wonderful pictures of this couple who was married at the Atlantis Ballroom located inside of the Holiday Inn of Toms River. This Central NJ wedding banquet hall had a taste of an edgier style bride that chose a black, white, and red color palette. Featuring the beautiful courtyards at Monmouth University, and the reception at the Atlantis Ballroom this NJ wedding couple dares to push the envelope that much further with these fun and bold wedding photos.

Did you ever wonder what goes into a Central NJ wedding reception? The decor, the lighting, the cocktail reception, all of these details and more are revealed in our behind the scenes series of wedding videos that will be showcased at each of the Hotels Unlimited properties. Today’s post features the Versailles Ballroom at the Ramada of Toms River, NJ. Located in the prime location of Ocean County the Versailles Ballroom is close to both Point Pleasant and Seaside Heights and allows for great photo opportunities in the Jersey Shore local area.
Happy Halloweeneveryone! As a reminder, today is the last day to book for our Halloween 2011 wedding deal, our Treat or Treat wedding special. In the spirit of Halloween, we are offering some fun tips of how to make a Halloween wedding timeless and classy without looking cheesy with plastic bats and ghosts hanging everywhere.
Halloween has one of the most brilliant color contrasts of any holiday in the calendar year. Purple and orange are a very bold color contrast (as they are both located at opposite ends of the color spectrum). If one would like to include a tertiary color to soften the palette a light green is usually used to calm this color palette down. Of course white can also be used if a bride desires to have a white flower in the bouquet.
There are all kinds of fun classic themes that Central NJ brides can choose from when trying to include Halloween into their wedding. Here are a few fun ideas.
Phantom of the Opera- This 1988 classic Broadway musical featuring the music of Andrew Lloyd Webber, features the love story that still continues to run on Broadway today. Featuring aged parchment scrolls of sheet music and red roses, this theme is sure to leave guests bringing down the house, but hopefully without the chandelier.
Victorian Masquerade Ball- If a bride plans to have her wedding on Halloween, one might as well embrace the concept of masks. The masquerade ball can bring a dress-up element of fun for your guests, as well as a fun favor for them to take home. If younger children are involved or invited to the wedding, you can also have a craft table where your younger guests can design their own masks.
Today Hotels Unlimited is happy to introduce Lauren and Matt who were married on September 17th. Lauren and Matt like some of our Toms River couples held their Jersey Shore wedding ceremony on the nearby beaches and took pictures there. Then when it came time to celebrate the reception, they brought elements of the beach back with them to the Versailles Ballroom inside the Ramada Toms River. This is a great way to bring the beach into your special day without paying through the nose for a venue on the water. This locally inspired wedding features photographs from Georgian Court University, Ocean County Beaches and of course the Versailles Ballroom.
After looking through some photos in our gallery to feature on our blog, we still are in love with this wedding. This Middle Eastern inspired wedding includes the best of a traditional American wedding along with embracing the exotic tastes, colors, and culture of the Middle East. Featuring the photographic talents of Abella Studios and the amazing catering team at the Crystal Ballroom, this stunning wedding reception is truly an inspiration for any NJ Bride looking for wedding photos or ideas.
It’s no surprise how quickly technology emerges and integrates into our daily lives. Although it has its advantages and disadvantages, today we ask the question of the role of technology in the wedding industry.
Is it improper to send out wedding invitations via E-mail or through a digital medium versus a traditional paper invitation?
Although every wedding has its own circumstances and variations based on the couple, we decided to analyze the pros and cons of each side.
+1: No postage stamps required.
+1: Environmentally friendly. No paper required.
+1: Inexpensive. Many websites will let you customize your own for little to no cost.
-1: If you are looking to invite the grandparents, they are probably not tech savvy.
-1: Mass E-mail distribution sites can sometimes be marked as spam and can get lost in cyberspace.
-1: Depending on the style of the message, can set the tone in a cheap way. A traditional wedding with an e-vite? Not so much.
+1: are easily created and customizable to the couple’s theme/ personality. No template required.
+1: are portable for guests driving to your location for both the church and the reception.
+1: understandable by all ages and do not come with a computer incompatibility error.
-1: postage stamps, card paper, and any specialized calligraphy writing will add up $$$ very quickly.
-1: depending on if one makes the invites or buys them, one has to consider gas and labor.
-1: takes longer to deliver and receive RSVP. Bridal party will have to develop manual system of RSVP.
Today, we have some lovely photos for our NJ Brides to enjoy at our Monmouth County wedding banquet hall. Featuring Melvin and Jamie, our happy couple enjoyed great food, fun, and looked stunning. Check them out!
Don’t forget that the Sterling Ballroom is also available for any Central NJ Bar Mitzvahs, Sweet 16s, anniversaries, baby and bridal showers, and corporate events.
