Being in this industry, we get the chance to meet so many amazing couples. Each couple has their own unique stories and personalities, and we love getting to know them.Elizabeth and Matthew are one of those couples that you can’t help but love, and you’ll see why!
Elizabeth and Matthew tied the knot on May 19th, 2018 at The Channel Club in Monmouth Beach. The services we provided for their big day were Half Day of Coordination (NJWP), Photo Booth (Brandon), and various other ceremony decor.
We put our heart and soul into providing services for all of our couples, and when it comes to planning and day of coordination, we get to become much more personally involved! As day of coordinators, we get to assist the bridal party and make sure that everything is set up correctly. We create a day-of itinerary from start to finish to ensure that every single aspect and every single detail goes smoothly and just to how our couple wants it. We are in communication with all vendors, and send them itineraries and timelines, so everybody is up to date with what is happening, when it is happening, and how it is happening!
The ceremony was held at The Channel Club, where Elizabeth and Matthew wed under a Chuppah, with the opening of the ceremony stating, “We are gathered here today to witness the merger of one massive plant collection and one massive care bear collection…as well as the joining of two hearts.” We love how our couples can bring their personality into all aspects of their wedding, from ceremony all the way to reception.
Wedding under a Chuppah is traditional for a Jewish marriage. A Chuppah represents the home that Elizabeth and Matthew will build together, and the openness on the four sides represent the openness that the bride and groom have to each other, as well as an openness to their family and friends to join them as they continue their journey together.
Elizabeth and Matthew also wrote their own vows, incorporating a lot of humor, and keeping it true to their every-day lives. Like we said before, there are really so many ways to make your wedding ceremony as unique as you and your relationship are. WE LOVED IT!
The theme of this wedding was all about the beach, including some fun beach-themed decor and even props for the photo booth. The centerpieces were made of a glass bowl with sea shells on the bottom and three candles around them, with cork-shaped boats inside.
There was also a fun Message in a Bottle station that was set up where guests could write well wishes to the newly-wed couple, and place their gifts in a treasure chest.
You know how couples normally have a first dance as newlyweds? Well, Elizabeth and Matthew has a first dance, but not the “traditional” kind. Take a look at these moves!
How AWESOME was that?!
During the reception, guests enjoyed taking tons of pictures in the photo booth. The couple even added their own personalized touches to the background!
Elizabeth and Matthew truly put so much of themselves into their big day to really make it reflect who they are as a couple.
Elizabeth and Matthew, thank you for choosing us to be a part of your incredible wedding. We wish you and your beautiful daughter all of the love and happiness that this world has to offer!
