There are some couples that find home in each other, that sense of belonging and ease that feels so right. Dana & Patrick are one of those couples and for both of them the connection took place almost instantly. When I walked into The Asbury Hotel , a hip new venue in heart of one of the most dynamic shore towns, I was taken away by both of their radiant smiles and genuine warmth. Dana was stunning in a Jovani silk sheath dress from Mustillo's Bridal in Red Bank and gem drenched Badgley Mischka heals. Michele Falco of Bridal By Michele styled Dana in a classic old Hollywood updo accented with an ornate hair clip and a great red lip. Patrick happened to have the perfect connection in his friend Darryn of Darryn Murphy Designs who helped plan the big day and created lush floral arrangements with purple, cream and burnt orange accents. As Patrick is a beloved baseball coach a few game day touches were sprinkled in the design. It was a day of warmth, beauty and love!Read More

For Erin and Vito it truly was love at first sight! They first caught a glance of each other at a CBA swim meet where Erin was cheering on her younger brother and Vito was his coach. Vito's breath was taken away by the gorgeous blonde and she couldn't stop thinking of the handsome coach! A whirlwind summer romance found this couple madly in love and two years later Vito found the most romantic way to pop the question! With their fun summers at the shore as inspiration Vito scoured every antique store for the perfect vintage bottle, a true romantic he wrote a sweet note with the big question and lovingly antiqued it to match the bottle. With friends and family he set out to make the dream proposal. On the bridge in Spring Lake, NJ he placed the bottle for Erin to find as they took a romantic stroll before dinner. As the sun started to set she found the bottle and started to read the note, Vito got on one knee and proposed! For the big day they kept the shore vibe and decided they would be tying the knot with a nautical theme's at Rumson Country Club's Riverhouse. We couldn't think of a better way!Read More
Lindsey and Drew were college sweethearts at Holy Cross College in Worcester, Massachusetts. After seven amazing years Drew proposed on Lindsey's 26th birthday in NYC with a photo album of treasured collage memories. Both students of History they were drawn to the old manor feel and expansive property of Fiddler's Elbow Country Club for their big day as it reminded them of the vine covered academic buildings and grounds of their dear alma matre.
The romantic, timeless gowns of Monique Lhuillier captured Lindsey's heart and both her and her bridesmaids wore them. We adored the graceful style of her sweetheart gown and off the shoulder lace bodice which she could remove for dancing ease later in the evening. Bow accented Kate Spade shoes added romance and style. An event planner herself Lindsey choose a lavender and spring green color palette as an homage to Holy Cross's collegiate color purple.
For the ceremony they chose Lindsey's home parish of Saint James Church in Basking Ridge NJ. Afterwards the newly wed couple was greeted with a fanfare of lavender ribbons and congratulations. The couple then was whisked away to Fiddler's Elbow Country Club for a stroll on the grounds and signature cocktails. They danced the night away to music from The Groove Shop. Capturing the sweetness of this couple and the depth of their love are what I cherish about my work!
