For Erin and Vito it truly was love at first sight! They first caught a glance of each other at a CBA swim meet where Erin was cheering on her younger brother and Vito was his coach. Vito's breath was taken away by the gorgeous blonde and she couldn't stop thinking of the handsome coach! A whirlwind summer romance found this couple madly in love and two years later Vito found the most romantic way to pop the question! With their fun summers at the shore as inspiration Vito scoured every antique store for the perfect vintage bottle, a true romantic he wrote a sweet note with the big question and lovingly antiqued it to match the bottle. With friends and family he set out to make the dream proposal. On the bridge in Spring Lake, NJ he placed the bottle for Erin to find as they took a romantic stroll before dinner. As the sun started to set she found the bottle and started to read the note, Vito got on one knee and proposed! For the big day they kept the shore vibe and decided they would be tying the knot with a nautical theme's at Rumson Country Club's Riverhouse. We couldn't think of a better way!Read More
Taryn and James winter wedding could be described in two words, elegant and FUN! Taryn looked stunning in her Jim Helm gown from Mustillo's Bridal in Red Bank.

After the ceremony , Taryn changed out of the lace cover up added a sparkly belt and drop earrings. The brides maids all choose their own long , black gowns and were wrapped in fur coats.
Taryn and James meet in high school. She went to Red Bank Catholic and he CBA. Red Bank holds a lot of fun memories for the couple. They wanted to take some playful shots in town.
We later headed to Navesink Country Club where Craig and Darryn from Craig Kiely and Darry Murphy Designs transformed the ballroom into a winter wonderland. The couple toke a spin on the ice skating riding a Zambone prior to being announced as Mr. & Mrs. Cahill.
I loved that they served comfort food, gourmet sliders and mac and cheese for dinner. This was a dancing crowd. The amazing Brian Kirk and the Jerks had them dancing all night long. They ended the night by cutting their Fudgy The Whale ice cream cake from Carvel, a child hood favorite.
