An unmatched coastal vacation resort, The ICONA Resorts offer outstanding beach weddings along the New Jersey shore. Created with a spirit of warmth, love, sun, and sand, their inspired venues offer unapparelled hospitality and service and a once in a lifetime experience for wedding couples and their guests. The ICONA has multiple oceanfront venues, with stunning outdoor locations as well as sophisticated and fashionable indoor options with fantastic views to ensure everyone experiences the Atlantic vibe in comfort and style. Get married on the beach and then join your friends and family in the Seaglass Ballroom for a reception. This 4,000 square foot space with large wood dance floor and multiple crystal chandeliers is an elegant reception venue; however, it can also transition from ceremony to reception location, providing exquisite views while safe from coastal elements. I love the floor-to-ceiling windows bringing in tons of available light, which is perfect for candid and formal portraiture. The large dance floor and natural tones of the room bring the outside in and create a seashore chic wedding. The Ohana Suite is the perfect pairing to an Oceanside wedding offering a 1,600 square foot indoor or outdoor cocktail hour space at the Avalon. However, it can also be utilized for a reception for up to 150 people using the private foyer for a cocktail hour. Additionally, the Ohana Suite can be combined with the Seaglass as a gathering space for friends and family to connect in a quieter atmosphere. The Avalon is also home to the Sandbar Beach Bar & Lounge, which is an ideal location for the wedding after-party. Diamond Beach in New Jersey is one of the few private beaches in the area. Offering the miles of white sand and views, it’s a stunning location for a water’s edge "I do." Step inside The Pavilion for seaside elegance in this 1,800 square foot tent which boasts a massive bar, large wood dance floor and custom uplighting Or, take it up a notch, literally, with a wedding on the Lani Rooftop with the stunning Atlantic Ocean and beach vistas. You can host a wedding or reception for us to 250 guests or the rooftop can be tented for cocktail parties or smaller receptions. The long stretches of white sand, the glow of the sunset, or the long shadows of the mid-day sun are all fantastic backdrops for creating outstanding wedding portraiture and is something that I enjoy about weddings at ICONA.
