Waterfront NJ Wedding

There are likely thousands of venues in New Jersey for couples to utilize for their special day. Unfortunately, only a handful of these venues are on the Hudson River and offer the gorgeous views of New York City that the Chart House in Weehawken, New Jersey provides.

What a view...

This was the backdrop for Nicholas and Jaclynn as they united in holy matrimony on March 24th.

View of New York City from Weehawken

Located right on the Hudson River and directly across from Manhattan, Chart House Weehawken at Lincoln Harbor offers gorgeous panoramic views of the glittering New York skyline - from the Empire State Building to Wall Street. An unforgettable seafood restaurant, Chart House thrills diners not only with its views and million dollar remodel, but also its unique cuisine, from seafood specialties like Mac Nut Mahi to classics like our Slow-Roasted Prime Rib.

Offering the best view of New York City’s Independence Day fireworks show and more, Chart House Weehawken often affords guests a front row seat to waterfront dining with New York City views. Known for its elegance and famous view, Chart House is no stranger to celebrity – the restaurant has been featured on TLC’s Cake Boss. Several primetime television shows and blockbuster movies have also taken advantage of our gorgeous location.

Dance the night away...

The majority of the music for the evening was requested by Jaclynn and Nick. We utilized two separate playlists:

The dinner playlist was lightly in the background while the guests ate:

Here is a small snip-it of transitions for the dinner music with playlist below:

And more of a dancing playlist for post-dinner that included a mix of older and newer hits:

  • Closer (Lyric) ft. Halsey by The Chainsmokers
  • SexyBack ft Timbaland by Justin Timberlake
  • Wannabe (Kay Stafford Club Edit) by Spice Girls
  • Footloose by Kenny Loggins
  • Ain't No Mountain High Enough by Marvin Gaye, Tammi Terrell

Jaclynn and Nick trusted my expertise to create a good balance based on their guests and the direction of the evening, which went seamlessly.

First dance song: Everything by Michael Buble

Father Daughter dance song: Fly me to the moon by Frank Sinatra

DJ Michael was incredibly flexible and easy to work with. He was able to get all of our requests in and ensure our guests had a good time at our wedding.
