Every so often, two souls meet and breathe a sigh of relief, saying “there you are, I’ve been looking for you.” Marriage is more than just a word, it is a commitment, a lifelong bond. It is saying that you found the one person, out of billions of people, that you want to grocery shop with for the rest of your life! All kidding aside, marriage is beautiful, and so are our couples.
Amanda & Brendan were first featured in our “She Said Yes” Proposal Series a few months ago. Brendan popped the question while on a cruise in 2016, and in what felt like the blink of an eye, the biggest day of their lives had arrived.
Our couple got married on November 25th, 2017, at the Church of the Precious Blood in Monmouth Beach, followed by their reception at the Channel Club.
The services that we provided Amanda and Brendan were Full Day of Photo and Video by Angelica and Andrew, Photo Booth by Brandon (a MUST have for any event!), Shuttle, Flowers, Decor, Centerpieces, and Angela Nuran Shoes!
As [mostly] all couples do on their wedding day, Amanda and Brendan got ready in separate quarters, keeping themselves a mystery to the other before the big reveal. Surrounded by family and friends, the soon-to-be-married couple took in their last moments before they sealed their lifelong commitment to one another.
Amanda’s gorgeous bridal bouquet is a medium tear-drop cascading bouquet with blush opened roses, wine colored mums, eggplant calla lillies, dark purple and burgundy mini carnations, wrapped in ivory and gold ribbon.
A lot of our couples have been doing first looks this year, where they have a private meeting before the ceremony, either alone or with family. This is becoming more and more popular in the wedding world. However, Amanda and Brendan chose to see each other for the first time as Amanda walked down the aisle. Would you, or did you, have a first look? Let us know in our Facebook poll!
After the ceremony at the Church of the Precious Blood, family and friends gathered at the Channel Club to celebrate the newlyweds in style! Our couple had a very beach-inspired theme, with elements of fall, such as white pumpkins. A perfect theme for a fall wedding at the Jersey Shore, don’t you think?!
First dances were had, toasts were made, and family and friends enjoyed each other’s company as they celebrated Amanda and Brendan’s new life together.
We have to point out that the gorgeous purple bridesmaid dresses and flowers really popped against the white linens, chairs and other decor of the venue, creating a nice contrast. The warm jewel tones and pastels are simply stunning!
We also want to point out Amanda’s shoes. Oh, these shoes. We cannot say enough wonderful things about Angela Nuran and her products. Surprise! Amanda’s bridal shoes were dyed a gorgeous purple color to match her color theme! It is not often you see a bride without white shoes, but it just adds another personal element to the ceremony. We are in love with how they look! If you want the most comfortable, customizeable bridal shoe on the market, Angela is your girl.

We absolutely loved being a part of Amanda and Brendan’s day, and nothing makes us happier than seeing our couples happy. We wish you both a lifetime of health, happiness and love! Thank you for letting us share your day!
