Alex and Jay were married oh a perfect September day in Spring Lake, NJ. They live in Boston but Alex grew up at the Jersey Shore and they thought it would be the perfect destination for their family and friends. The morning of the wedding, me met Alex at her parents stunning house in downtown Spring Lake. The bridal party then took an old fashioned trolley down the street to St. Catherine’s church for the ceremony. The rest of the day was all about the party which took place at the Spring Lake Bath and Tennis Club. They warned us beforehand but Alex and Jay were probably the biggest partiers we have worked with! We were blown away by how much fun they (and pretty much every wedding guest) were. They had an AWESOME band named Cafe Wha? who kept everyone dancing the entire night.
Alex incorporated lots of fun details throughout the day which made their wedding really personal. The pretty blue, grey, ivory and green color palette was the perfect combination for the shore in late summer. The table numbers represented all of their favorite spots from college and we loved the “high five” cake topper! And how could we forget the beautiful florals done by In Bloom. Check out a few of our favorite images captured by the amazing team at Robert & Kathleen Photographers!
Alex and Jay we had some much fun helping on your wedding day!! You guys are so much fun to be around and wish you the all the best!

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!
