Lorrance & Tinh: Modern Shore Wedding

Lorrance reached out to us in the middle of February to help design her “Modern Beach Wedding”  which took place this past July at the Salt Creek Grill in Rumson.  Our first step was to create the perfect color palette; shades of pink, grey and ivory.  We then had lots of fun brainstorming ideas to tie into the theme and the final product was well worth all the planning!  Lorrance and Tinh’s tablescape included; grey pintuck linens, hot pink napkins, beautiful centerpieces filled with orchids and pearls, a starfish at each pace setting and a box of chocolates.  Some of our favorite details included a DIY s’mores bar, a cigar roller, ribbon’s on the ceremony chairs, parasols, palm fans and finally flip-flops for dancing!  And we can’t help but mention the amazing bridal bouquet by Peter James Floral Couture!!

Lorrance’s first dress (she had two) was designed just for her in the Philippines.  The morning of the wedding we met up with Lorrance and her bridesmaids at her and Tinh’s new home, they closed the same month as their wedding!  The bridal party was already having a great time getting their hair and makeup done.  They then headed to Red Bank for the first look and pictures on the Navesink River.  The ceremony was held on the water and  to make it even more memorable Tinh’s grandfather performed the ceremony.  Right after, guests headed inside for the cocktail hour and Lorrance changed into her second dress.  There were lots of great moments throughout the evening but the highlight had to be the same-day-edit by Mpw MediaGroup!  Check out some of our favorite images they captured from the day.

And we couldn’t help but share the inspiration board we created for Lorrance, it was so much fun to see  it all come to life!  Lorrance and Tinh, thank you so much for the opportunity to help design your amazing summer wedding.  We wish and Ava all the best!

Kat & Adam: A Hoboken Wedding

Kat and Adam were married on a perfect September day at Our Lady of Grace, a beautiful church in Hoboken.  The couple combined their Catholic and Jewish faiths in the ceremony.  We then headed over to the reception at The Royal Manor in Garfield, NJ.  We had a great time working with the couple to bring to life their natural green and yellow color palette.  Some of our favorite details from the day include; DIY favors,  rustic branch centerpieces,  a wedding wand ceremony exit and of course the adorable cake topper!  Here our some of our favorite images captured by SCV Imagery.

Thanks so much Kat and Adam for allowing us to help on your wedding day:)
