Jessica & Michael met on holiday in the Bahamas. She lived in New York; he lived in New Hampshire. Despite geographical differences they both knew it was love at first sight and two weeks later they had their first date. It was fitting that the two choose The Bonnet Island Estate on LBI to wed. The private island escape was such a peaceful backdrop with its lush grasses and wild birds it was as if the couple was still on holiday.
Michelle Santanello of MDS Floral Designs made elegant & airy bouquets wrapped in blush silk and sequins. Hand painted signs led the way to the ceremony.
The pre-wedding outfits were just way to cute!
Stephanie Somodi of Designs by Stephanie incorporated Jessica's blue & green theme in an elegant design for the invitations, programs, and menues. Jessica's hairpiece was antique silver with pearl.
Bubbles added a touch of whimsy & joy after the ceremony.
