Liz and Michael had the perfect day for their tented at home wedding on the water in Rumson. Michelle of Michelle Elaine Weddings helped to bring Liz’s vision to fruition working closely with Kate Duffy of Katydid Floral and Event Design who designed an luxurious and elegant affair. The color palette was neutral with shades of white: white peony and sweet pea bouquets, elegant white roses, mirrored chargers, and table coverings of delicate white floral appliqué over a soft dove grey background paired with custom monogramed napkins.Read More
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.
Our adorable couple Kristy & Jeff first bonded over their love of all things sweet, soda to be specific! She went to Quinnipiac University and he went to the University of New Haven and both of them knew right away that their love would be a forever kind of love and that Connecticut would hold a special place in their hearts. After graduating at different times they kept up a long distance relationship with one in Connecticut and the other in New Jersey. Summers in Ocean City New Jersey helped keep their relationship full of fun and lightheartedness. They even had their engagement photos taken on the boardwalk! On the big day Kristy looked absolutely radiant in a satin Judd Waddell gown from Kleinfled Bridal with an embellished veil by Pnina Tornai and glittery Kate Spade heals that were so much fun. She accented the look with just the right amount of sparkle from Kreations by Anne. Her bridesmaids wore flowing Grecian column gowns in shades of deep fuchsia. Bedminster Florist chose the same shade for the peonies in the bridal bouquet with a golden elephant charm for good luck and opted for roses and peonies in all the shades of pink for the girls. The couple chose the beautiful Church of Christ the King in New Vernon with its stunning blue interior and vibrant community for their touching ceremony. Tears, smiles and sunshine touched the crowd of friends and family.
The crowd was then off to Maplewood Country Club where they were greeted with signature pink cocktails and fuchsia pashmina wraps to keep them warm as the sun went down over the beautiful flowering cherry blossoms. Bedminster Florist took Kristy's 'Dorothy meets Cinderella' heels as inspiration for the glittering table cards paired with roses in all shades of pink and lush green leaves. Touching toasts brought tears of joy and laughter. Even an honorary soda toast was made to celebrate the two lovebirds sweet first meeting, complete with celebratory pink and white-stripped straws adorned with cute phrases. Celebration Band managed by Jason Craig Entertainment kept this dancing crowd on their toes all night and Magnolia Photobooth Co. captured funny moments. All in all a very sweet wedding story!
