Bay Head Yacht Club: A Heartfelt Shore Wedding: New Jersey Wedding Photographers

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!

Cait & Tom would be the life of any party.  These ultimate Bruce Springsteen fans are vibrant,  full of love, and brimming with humor.  Their wedding was a classic Bay Head event with it's Vineyard Vine Ties, great hats, and  fresh ocean breezes.  The bride wore her sister's wedding gown in memory of her and a veil from Barefoot Bride.    Her bridesmaids were her beautiful nieces who wore Coren Moore dresses in a great marine blue. Her maid of honor was a dear friend who introduce the couple with the help of Tom's sister.  Tom chose Brooks Brothers Suits & Vineyard Vine Ties for his groomsmen whom he's shared a lifelong friendship with. Tom asked his father to be his best man.  The couple arrived at  Sacred Heart Church in Bay Head to share their vows.  It's classic cedar shingles and crisp blue hydrangea where just charming.  After the ceremony the bridal party caught the boat from the  Bay Head Yacht Club for a grand entrance.  Kate Duffy of Katydid Signature Floral & Event Design created stunning classic hydrangea & green orchid arrangements for the reception with place cards named after famous Springsteen songs and soft candlelight glow. The Block & Blue Band kept these crazy dancers on the floor all night, stepping off only briefly for the mother of the bride to sing and dedicate a song to the couple.  The bride herself took a spin on the mike as guests crowded round.  What Cait didn't know is that the crowd prepared a special treat for her.  As Cait sang at many of their weddings her guests thought it would be a fitting surprise for everyone to take out their iphones and sing at the top of their lungs.  It was a ball!!
