Beth is a city girl and Patrick loves the country but this couple didn't let living two hours away from each other keep them apart. They found a mutual love of the shore in the quaint town of Bay Head. Hurricane Sandy brought them closer as Patrick's rural NJ home lost power for three weeks and he made the trip to Beth's NYC apartment with his beautiful children, dog and guinea pig in toe. It was a chance to bond and let their love grow. When Patrick proposed they could think no other place than Bay Head to celebrate their big day. They chose local vendors as many of them have had a tough time recovering since the storm. Beth chose a Carol Hannah gown for her wedding day that caught the shore breezes with every turn and accented it with pearls and fabulous StaurtWeitzman heels with a nautical rope touch. Her girls wore J. Crew dresses in blue and the boys choose navy blazers and vineyard vine ties to match the boaters theme. Florist Wini Applegate played on this theme with bouquets in blue hydrangea and creme roses. The Bay Head Chapel with its classic cedar siding and warm feel was the perfect for the couples ceremony. After a stroll to the beach the couple headed to the Bay Head Yacht Club where Party planner Karen Levine had transformed the former boat house into a dream wedding venue with white lanterns and marine inspired accents. The couple arrived to their reception by boat and shared a romantic, sun drenched first dance. The Touch Band brought everyone to the dance floor and the boat houses unique architecture allowed all the sunset colors to be enjoyed by the guests as they ate and mingled. Mueller's Bakery, a much beloved local bakery, created the sweet ending for the night and even placed two beach chairs on top of the couples cake to remind them of all those wonderful shore memories. Truly a day to remember!
