Jessica and Jordan tied the knot on a sunny July Saturday at Oyster Bay. The weather may have been warm, but Jessica's bridesmaids looked completely cool in their pastel pink dresses. The photographer for the day: the very talented Jennifer Mosley of J. Mosley Photography, who has worked with the bride and her family for years, capturing proms, family memories, and now, their special day! We're swooning over her photos, falling in love with their special day all over again. Take a look:

Holiday Party | New Years Masquerade

December 2014 was a month of great celebration
at Oyster Bay Yacht Club!

 
 

We enjoyed our yearly Member Holiday Party on the fifth with an extravagant dinner buffet and entertainment provided by We Three Swing.

Here is what the members are saying:

" What a fabulous meal we all enjoyed! Everyone at our table (and lots of others) RAVED about the food. One couple said they go on cruises a lot and they have lobster night on board and "it is nothing like this"! A couple of people said it was the best meal they had ever eaten!!! Wow! Now that says something.
People were blown aware by the Maine Lobster as they usually get warm water Lobsters when they are served. Everything was excellent and the staff did a great job! "

" Great party last night.
Food was excellent and the band with Darren, Ernie, and part time Mike was perfect. The background dinner music was just right and their repertoire for the crowd went from the Stones to Johnny Cash and Buffet. "

This year's New Year's Party was a huge success! With the theme of a masquerade, a three course dinner and perfectly mixed cocktails, you can't go wrong! 
The menu consisted of delicious creations by Chef Bill which included Filet Mignon and Stuffed Prawns. The members also enjoyed delicious butler passed appetizers such as Stuffed Mushrooms and Crab Cakes. Members danced the night away with the amazing Dan Voll Band with special guest Gabe Arnold on the sax. At midnight, we topped the night off with a Champagne Toast to ring in the New Year.

Happy New Year from Oyster Bay Yacht Club to you!

Talk about some good times! If you didn't make it last Saturday, you truly missed out! The night was full of great food, good company and an awesome band that kept everyone on their feet.

Every second of the night was full of entertainment. The band, Firewater Tent Revival, surely did not disappoint! Their upbeat presence, array of instruments and unique sound created the perfect vibe for the night. No one could resist swaying to the music!

The menu was full of delicious barbeque including Cajun Fried Turkey Breast and Mesquite Smoked Beef Brisket. And what could a bluegrass BBQ be without some Fried Gator Tail?! We paired these delicious entrees with Corn on the Cob, Old Kentucky Potato Salad, Fresh Greens and Brussels Sprouts! We topped everything off with some delightful Drunken Watermelon!

 

For our Featured Brew, we brought in Intuition John Boat brewed in Jacksonville! Its' refreshing, crisp brew was delicious.


What the members are saying:

"Can't help but compliment you again on the menu, special events and Sunday lunches...Thanks much for a very nice BBQ function Saturday. Thank your staff for a job well done"

"The food was fabulous and the band was great. Great Job - Congratulations!"

Anna and Tim's big day was the most grand of all fairy tales. Every detail of their big day was perfection and whimsical. Leah is the epitome of a southern belle and Tim is a perfect gentleman. Nothing could have made their day more perfect than it was.
