“Now everyone dreams of a love faithful and true,
But you and I know what this world can do.
So let's make our steps clear so the other may see.
And I'll wait for you...should I fall behind wait for me.”
― Bruce Springsteen
It would not be Kelly and Bill’s wedding if we didn’t start it out and finish with a little Springsteen! These two love birds have joyous spirits and a love that is clear as day. It was a humorous start to the day with fire alarms bringing them together in the morning for a impromptu first look at The The Berkeley Hotel in Asbury Park. They took it in stride with a fabulous attitude which is something that I noticed about both of them, they are both such positive people, the kind that just brighten up any room they walk in. It is easy to see why they were drawn to each other.
Mallory of Mallory Weiss Planning did an amazing job planning the day, from the gorgeous rooftop ceremony with ocean views to the amazingly energetic party that closed out the night. Kelly looked positively radiant in her Modern Trousseau A-Lined gown with delicate lace overlays and satin platform Badgley Mischka’s and of course sparkly sneakers to round out the night on the dance floor. A friend beaded the amazing handbag with the bride’s initials in kelly green. So cute! Hot Mess Bridal selected a soft look for hair and makeup to accentuate Kelly’s natural beauty. Bloomers N’ Things created gorgeous lush bouquets in tones of creams, green and a touch of lavender. The bridesmaids looked stunning in lavender chiffon Azazie gowns and the men looked dapper in grey suits with matching lavender ties.
A post ceremony stroll on the boardwalk brought the bridal party past the Wooden Walls project with amazing murals by artists Park Chop, Pau Quintanajornet, Thiago Valdi and Fanakapan and many more. After a quick boardwalk visit it was time to party! Kelly and Bill of course entered to Bruce and they never stopped dancing!
