“beach wedding”

As our final farewell to summer, we are looking back at one of our favorite beach weddings. Stephanie and Jonathan’s Jersey shore wedding celebration was the perfect combination of fabulous and fun!

The Reeds at Shelter Haven is a gorgeous hotel located in the quaint New Jersey Shore town, Stone Harbor and was the perfect setting for this laid back, yet elegant summer wedding. Our event planning and design team used shades of greys and mossy greens that were accented by bright pops of canary yellow in all of the design elements. The traditional wedding ceremony was located outdoors, so we hung bright yellow parasols as a canopy for our bride and groom to say, “I do”. Take a look at some of our favorite images from this gorgeous day taken by the talented, Dave Robbins Photography!

This Bride & Groom are perfect for each other and their relaxed yet elegant Jersey shore beach wedding was flawless. Even though the skies threatened rain all day, we never had a drop. The sun came out just as the ceremony dawned. The bright light of the bay moved into the gorgeous sunset and as the light dimmed the market lighting made the evening shimmer. The Reeds at Shelter Haven is the ultimate venue for a wedding at the shore. The ballroom extends very gracefully into the patio making the inside and outdoor space appear as one. The guest rooms at this venue are beautifully appointed and the Team that runs the show at the hotel, in every department, is nothing but professional.

This bride chose yellow and gray as her colors. We found the absolute perfect linens to convey the beach feeling within her color scheme. The centerpieces were full yet simple, adorned with lanterns and much candlelight. The head table was 100 glass containers of candles of all shapes and sizes. Our Creative Director, Jessica, who is in charge of all things fabulous, did an amazing job with the personal flowers, ceremony and table designs.

The logistics of the weekend were handled by myself and my Wedding Planning assistant, Amanda, who always does a stellar job at the details. Managing the schedules from the rehearsal dinner to the Sunday brunch is an incredible task. We were sad to see it end but thrilled that everyone was HAPPY!

A big shout out to Dave Robbins for these amazing images. He has an incredible eye for the details and a great sense of fun in his photographic composition. (And he was great to work with!)

The Reeds – Stunning at Night!

This got a LOT of use!

LOVE this sweet touch!

Beer koozie and fold up sunglasses with the Twitter # – cute, cute idea!

The bride used paperless post for the Wedding Invitations and carried through the theme on the print pieces for the day

Such a great idea so everyone could take their own iPhone pics – kinda like a photo booth but much more fun!

Last photo of the night! Congrats Mr. & Mrs.!!!

I love this oyster shell table runner. I think it would be perfect for an outdoor beach wedding with just the runners and a lot of candlelight in clear glass on the tables. Very simple & elegant.
