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!

<3 Jenn

Julia & Jay: The Inn At Millrace Pond Wedding

Jay and Julia Melnick were wed in late May at The Inn at Millrace Pond.  The venue was lovely.. lush grass, running rivers and a beautiful tented reception area to dance the night away.  Julia was radiant, her smile was contagious and you could feel the love they had for each other as soon as you arrived.  Their Chuppah was created from birch branches and the aisle was adorned with colorful wild flowers.  Cocktail hour was held inside the meeting house, pictures of both Julia and Jay parents and grandparents on their wedding day were scattered throughout for guests to enjoy along with the live music.  Guests were then escorted into the white tent for an evening filled of love, joy and laughter.  Julia and Jay were a pleasure to work with!

Arpita and Viral: A New Brunswick Wedding at The Heldrich

Arpita and Viral were married in a traditional Hindu Wedding on April 7, 2012.  The ceremony and reception took place at the Heldrich in New Brunswick which was a natural fit for the couple who met at Rutgers University.  We had so much fun working with them to make sure they were able to sit back and enjoy their day, which stated bright and early with the Barat!  Black lace accents carried throughout the entire day from the D.I.Y invitations to the vellum lace table numbers.  But did we mention Aprita’s love for the color pink?  Well you certainly couldn’t miss it; beautiful pink bridesmaid sari’s, pink roses, pink escort cards and her awesome pink heels!  We had a great time working with the staff of the Heldrich and of course Amie Schroeder Photography.  Enjoy just a few of the images they took which captured the details of the day beautifully.
