On a perfect Saturday in June, Jenna and Jim stood outside in front of a large gathering of friends and family, and said "I do" to happily-ever-after together. The couple first met after Jenna's cousin did a bit of matchmaking, picking Jim out of her husband's group of friends as someone who may hit it off with Jenna. Two years later, on Jenna's birthday, Jim proposed.
Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, was the ideal location for the elegant summer wedding. The ceremony took place outside in front of an extravagant fountain and beautiful flowers. Jenna wore a stunning gown from Elizabeth Johns, accompanied by her mother's veil and earrings handpicked by her groom. Jim could not have been any happier as he stood at the top of the stone steps in an Armani tuxedo, eyes locked on Jenna as she walked down the aisle with her father. The bridesmaids lined the left side of the steps in their Amsale dresses from Bella Bridesmaid and bouquets by Mike Pellegrino of Jardiniere Fine Flowers. On the opposite side of the stairs stood Jim's groomsmen, most of whom Jim had known since high school. Together, Jenna and Jim stood beneath a beautifully adorned arch and proclaimed their everlasting love for each other.
Inside, Jenna's mother and grandmother had worked endlessly to get everything perfect. Without them, the wedding would not have been the amazing event that it was, helping Jenna immensely with each detailed decision, from the stationary by Linda Gamba of Paperazzi, to the lighting design by Eggsotic Events, to the amazing Jason Craig Band. After cocktail hour upstairs on the veranda, guests came down into the spectacular ballroom decorated in hues of purple. From the start of the reception, with Jenna and Jim's first dance, through the speeches from Jenna's parents, sister, cousin, and Jim's best friend, until the end, with dancing and cutting of the cake, Jenna and Jim shined with love and happiness on their perfect day.
In 2007, Moira met Michael. They worked together for the same company in Connecticut and shared the same friends at work. It was when they began spending time together outside of work, however, that they found they had a lot in common. Both Michael and Moira loved to be active and learn. Over time, their friendship grew as they pushed each other to try new things. Moira learned to snowboard in order to keep up with Michael, and he took up swimming in order to compete in a triathlon with Moira.
Eventually, Moira changed jobs and moved to New York. With the move, the two athletes realized just how much they’d enjoyed spending most of their time together, and they now had to actively seek each other out. They were pleased to find that it all worked out seamlessly and felt very natural, which led to a more serious relationship between the two of them. Their time together has been nothing but a fun and exciting ride since it began. In 2012, Mike proposed on the first night of a vacation in Capri.
On a beautiful Saturday in May, the couple stood in front of their most beloved family and friends at the One Atlantic in Atlantic City, and read out their own vows. Moira was the definition of beauty with her hair and makeup done by Bella Angel, and her Pronovias lace gown and Badgley Mischka heels. Her bridesmaids were flawless in their dark blue Amsale gowns from Bella Bridesmaid and bouquets by Rainflorist. Michael could have been mistaken for 007 in his custom tux, while all the groomsmen were dashing in their own personal tuxes.
The reception was put together wonderfully with blue tables, and touches of white found in the flowers and hanging candles above the dance floor. Michael’s mother gifted each seat with her special chocolate chip cookies, and the couple’s wedding cake came from her very own carrot cake recipe. ExtraStep Video captured the night, while Wilson Stevens “Eye 2 Eye” band made the party unforgettable.
Jen and Andrew were both Boston College grads who meet through mutual friends and quickly fell in love. They decided that the shore with it's beauty and friends would be the perfect place for the wedding. On the big day Jen look just gorgeous in a Paloma Blanca gown with lace detailing and pearl accented belt. Adorable blue seersucker dresses from Lula Kate and Invitations by Vera Wang were just the thing for a shore wedding with a sailing theme. Andrew and his groomsmen were handsome in sport coats and khaki's with Vineyard Vine Ties. After the ceremony the bridal party headed to the beach for some quick photos. The Bay Head Yacht Club was the perfect venue for the couple and Petal Beach Floral Design Studio created hydrangea and rose arrangements in silver vases that were bathed in candlelight. Sailing knots tied by the groom held table numbers and mini beach badges told the guests where to sit. Mueller's Bakery of Bay Head even added an anchor cake topper. The bride and groom danced all night to the original Springsteen tribute band, The B Street Band, while Michael Simmons Productions captured the night on video. What a night!
