Megan & Dave: McLoone’s Pier House

0255 - D80_4112 - Favorites

Even though Megan and Dave had a rainy day, it didn’t stop them from having a gorgeous beach wedding in July!! We squeezed in a first look on the beach before the rain came which Paul Francis Photography captured perfectly!! Megan’s wedding style was great for the beach with her J.Crew wedding gown that flowed perfectly in the wind.  The ceremony took place in the cutest little church in Monmouth Beach.  Guests then headed over to McLoone’s Pier House for a fun night of dancing.  We loved the color palette which Petal Beach did a great job incorporating into the bouquets and floral arrangements… how pretty are the white roses paired with the pretty blue hydrangea!  The couple also incorporated lots of subtle beach details including escort cards in a bed of sand and a seashell cake.  We had so much fun working with Megan and Dave, now you get to enjoy some of our favorite images from the day!

Laura & Danny: Reeves-Reed Arboretum


We loved working with Laura and Danny to plan their intimate outdoor wedding at Reeves-Reed Arboretum back in the Summer of 2013.  We met about one year before and helped them find the perfect vendors including photographers Mary & Roy who captured all of the amazing details of the day!  You can tell from the pictures this wedding was filled with love and emotion!  Laura was a very artistic bride who incorporated many DIY details which included; a vintage broach bouquet (which was made with family heirloom’s) and cute escort card display!  Another favorite element was each guest had a paper placemat at their seat which they had the opportunity to color and draw on before dinner.  We then collected the placemats and they became the guest book!

PLD had the opportunity to do all the flowers for the wedding, the design included lots of baby’s breath which worked with the neutral color palette perfectly.  Emily’s Catering and Cafe provided a tasty family style dinner which rounded out the day perfectly.  Here are some of our favorite images!

Sheila & Raynor: Morris Arboretum Wedding

Sheila and Raynor are one of the sweetest couples we have ever worked with!  Thy were married on a beautiful May day at the Morris Arboretum in Pennsylvania.  Their wedding was filled with many memorable moments with their family and friends.  The Arboretum is such a fun place for a wedding, the cocktail hour even takes place in a giant treehouse…you can’t get anymore fun than that!!  Amie Schroeder Photography did an amazing job capturing the whole day, they are masters at taking the perfect wedding portrait!  We were also grateful to have had the opportunity to work with Love’n Fresh Flowers.  They are an urban flower farm and event floral design studio in Philadelphia working exclusively with locally grown elements.  Such amazing color and creativity, how stunning is Sheila’s bouquet??   Sheila and Raynor incorporated lots of fun natural elements into their wedding such as “leaf” escort cards and “tree” table numbers. Check out some of our favorite images from their awesome wedding!

Congratulations guys! It was such an honor to be a part of your wedding:)

Alex & Jay: Spring Lake Wedding

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!

<3 Jenn
