It is said that the person you think about while standing in front of the ocean is the person you’re in love with—no wonder why beach weddings and receptions are so popular. Jade and Doug got married on a beautiful summer day, with the ocean, sun and sky as witnesses to family and friends in celebration.
Our couple’s wedding ceremony was held at Brick Presbyterian Church, followed by a reception at Cape Breton Beach in Brick, NJ. The services that NJ Wedding Pros provided for this beautiful couple included Flowers and Decor, Photography (Andrew), Limo, DJ (Anthony M.), Catering (Chef Charles), and Day of Coordination!
Jade’s rounded bouquet was made up of white gerbera daisy, white daisys, white carnations, delphinium, and greens wrapped in ivory ribbon with crystals and pins, with a photograph of Jade’s grandfather that hung beautifully from it.
Our photographer, Andrew, arrived at the bride and groom’s location hours prior to their ceremony. No, you’re not seeing double.. Doug is a twin!
Our bride and groom spent time with their bridal party before the ceremony taking pictures and enjoying each other’s company. We are certain that Jade and Doug were both excited and nervous to see each other for the big reveal. Jade’s bridesmaids glowed in their navy blue dresses, while Doug and his groomsmen looked snazzy in gray suits with a tie to match the color theme of blues.
Overcome with emotion, Doug watches his future wife walk down the aisle.
We provided Jade and Doug with church baskets made with seasonal flowers, placed on top of beautiful pedestals. After the ceremony, limos took our bride and groom, their bridal party, and guests from the church to the reception. While everyone was attending the ceremony, we were hard at work as day of coordinator, setting up everything at the reception site.
After the ceremony, it was time to party! Jade and Doug shared their first dance as husband and wife surrounded by all of their loved ones. There was even a beautiful Memorial Palette to remember those who earned their wings, but were definitely there in spirit giving Jade and Doug their blessing.
In addition to the traditional Sweetheart Table, our couple had a fun polaroid table, s’mores bar, and corn hole! We love all weddings, but weddings that take place in a nontraditional setting allow for so much more flexibility, and addition of fun elements that guests might not anticipate being there.
As day of coordinator, we set up all of Jade and Doug’s reception details, from the sweetheart table, to centerpieces, to their rentals, and more, as included in their planning package. Take a look at some of the essential pieces of this wedding!
Our couple and their guests enjoyed catered food from Chef Charles and music by DJ Anthony M. Instead of just having a guestbook to sign, family and friends of Jade and Doug were able to take a Polaroid photo, and in return, they got a koozie(Don’t know what a koozie is? It’s a holder made from fabric that can insulate cans or bottles! They are great as a favor, especially because they can be customized!).
Can we take a few minutes to appreciate this s’mores bar?
After dinner, the Maid of Honor and Best Man gave speeches, and guests were treated to an assortment of desserts. Soon thereafter, the cake cutting and bouquet toss took place, signaling the end of the night had come.
The smiles on Jade and Doug’s face are why we do what we do!
We love making your day as special and unique as you and your other half are, and that is why we are 100% dedicated to providing top quality vendors and wedding planning services to make your day all you dreamed of and more.
Jade and Doug, we loved working with you both, and we wish you the best in your future together as husband and wife!
