    Danielle is AMAZING at Mallard Island

    Mallard is an amazing place to get married! The venue is absolutely beautiful and breathtaking. I grew up on the Jersey Shore so it was important to me that my wedding day tied that in. However, the best part of Mallard isn't the gorgeous view, or the jaw-dropping bridal suite. The best part about Mallard is Danielle. Danielle is the wedding coordinator that helps you through the entire process of planning your wedding at Mallard. She is hands down, the absolute best wedding planner/coordinator on this Earth. Danielle made my wedding process fun, relaxed and amazing. I would not have had the wedding I had if it wasn't for Danielle! I highly recommend this venue and Danielle!
