About The Mainland at the Holiday Inn
Located in Manahawkin, NJ, just minutes away from the Jersey shore, The Mainland at the Holiday Inn invites you to explore their beautiful hotel and venue! At Enchanted Celebrations, we are lucky to work with such an incredible team there to capture The Mainland Wedding photos for our loving couples. Their dedicated team of professionals create a vacation paradise for guests to celebrate a special event or enjoy its hotel amenities and adventure park. That’s right…this venue even has an adventure park with zip lines, climbing walls, go cart tracks, and more!
After a day of adventuring, bring the whole family on over to The Mainland Restaurant and Pub for food and drink specials with an incredible ambiance and outdoor seating options. The pub even has a whiskey and beer garden as well as delicious brunches in the morning. For drinks, we totally have got our eye on trying a coffee cocktail! Pair your refreshing beverage with an app like hummus and pita and a mouthwatering entree like the grilled salmon.
Land Yourself Into More Fresh Cuisine
If their pub eats alone have you hungry for more, just wait until you get a preview of their wedding options! Included in your buffet or plated reception, the cocktail hour includes a variety of food stations. From Italian classics (bring on the pasta!) to Asian style foods (chopsticks, please!), your guests will be blown away right from the beginning. In addition, cocktail hour could also include a choice of any five passed hors d-oeuvres. From street food to even vegan and vegetarian selections, take your pick among a delectable array of appetizers for everyone! (We’ll take a handful of those buffalo chicken and blue cheese poppers, please!). With such a stellar selection of premium snacks, make sure you save room for dinner and dessert, too!
At The Mainland, you have the option to select between a buffet or plated dinner. The buffet style includes salad, sides, pasta, entrees, and a carving station. Don’t be afraid to grab seconds! Meanwhile, the plated dinner provides salad and a pre-selected entree dish. Whether your favorite is chicken, beef, or fish, you will be beyond satisfied! Don’t believe us?! We have one of our couples, Jodie and Lance, to show for it! Thanks to The Mainland at the Holiday Inn, Jodie and Lance dined, laughed, and danced their perfect wedding reception away, and so can you.
We know what you’re thinking…what about dessert?! Beyond your classic three-tiered cake, you receive a choice of pastry or cookie platters, layered mason jars, and butler-passed desserts. (Apple crisp in a mason jar…say no more!). In addition to the food variety, The Mainland has an incredible amount of enhancements for every menu they offer. Hello, ice cream sundae bar! Be sure to check out the full details for food and drinks on their site.
Get Ready for The Main Event
*Queue the best day ever…your wedding!* Including hotel accommodations and dining, The Mainland aims to deliver the complete wedding package with a fun, one-stop shop atmosphere. With their wedding package, you will receive a glorious reception as well as sweet perks for the newlyweds (hello, champagne and breakfast!). The attentive staff at The Mainland goes above and beyond to make sure every single detail of your wedding reception goes on without a hitch. Moreover, the reception includes a five hour open bar and cocktail hour. In addition, you will have a personal maitre d’ to oversee your wedding and assist with linens and centerpieces. On top of all of that, you will receive a custom three- tier wedding cake. Now, let’s bring on the main event!
Are You Falling Inn Love Yet?
In short, this extraordinary venue will happily host your event in either their Terrace or Ballroom. Their Terrace holds up to two hundred people and features lush greenery and a breathtaking stone fireplace. In contrast, their Ballroom includes dazzling crystal chandeliers and seating up to five hundred of your family and friends. Like Kelli and Chris, you and the love of your life can dance underneath the sparkling chandelier lights together! This adorable couple tied in the season of summer to their reception with a beach themed cake and aqua pops of color.
The Holiday Inn is filled with lots of love in the air! Before you take on the dance floor with your loved ones all around you, experience the picturesque outdoors for taking beautiful The Mainland Wedding photos. One couple we have in mind, Melissa and Shawn, took full advantage of all the stunning greenery and amazing photo ops to take. The happy couple and wedding party posed among the trees and open lands surrounding the venue on a gorgeous September afternoon. After some time showing off their best dance moves in the Ballroom, they snuck off to take nighttime portraits in the white gazebo there. Speaking of their gazebo, it made another worthy appearance for Noemi and Matt’s wedding videography! Of course, their video also showed the two reciting their vows, dancing the night away, and enjoying every candid memory in between.
As this venue is an incredible choice for your wedding, don’t forget that you can also book other special events! We’re thinking back to when we helped celebrate Denise’s Sweet 16 with her family and friends. Denise looked like such a princess in her glowing dress as she spent the night dancing and celebrating her birthday! Above all, we’re so happy that we could be a part of each of these special celebrations for our clients.
Want to See More?
Don’y you worry, there’s plenty more falling inn love with a venue like this one. Overall, our NJ Wedding Photographers or NJ Wedding Videographers could not have captured any of these elegant weddings or special events without The Mainland at the Holiday Inn’s knowledgeable and compassionate staff. Ultimately, we cannot wait to return to this timeless hotel for many more celebrations to catch on camera and film.
