Not only do we love the marriage between two people, we love the unification of two families. Jessica and Peter unified their families on July 27th at Jumping Brook Country Club in Neptune City, NJ as they committed their hearts to one another with those two words that mean so much:

“I Do.”

The services we provided for Jessica and Peter were an Officiant, Wedding Day Planning Prep Package, Flowers, Ceremony Decor, and Reception Decor.

We understand that planning your wedding can be overwhelming, which is why we offer an exclusive Wedding Day Planning Prep Package, which our couple took advantage of right away. With this package, we are with you each step of the way, providing vendor coordination, multiple consultation meetings, a detailed itinerary and timeline, and assistance the day of your wedding.

Jessica’s bridal bouquet was freeform cascading, with blush pink roses, eucalyptus greens, succulents, amaranthus and burgundy flowers, in a holder wrapped with light ivory ribbon. Did you know there are various different styled bouquets, as well as wrapped VS. hand tied? So. Many. Options!

Don’t worry, we can help you decide!

Her bridesmaids bouquets were made to match, but tied with burgundy ribbon. Her flower girls held a burgundy, blush and eucalyptus flower wreath.

Peter’s boutonniere was made out of a succulent, while his groomsmen had blush pink roses with eucalyptus. His grooms-woman had a blush pink rose and greens bouquet in a holder with burgundy ribbon. There are so many different ways we can incorporate your colors into your wedding day with different flowers!


During the ceremony, 2 blush roses tied with tulle were placed on chairs on both sides of the ceremony for those who have passed. What a an absolutely beautiful way to honor your loved one’s memory on a special day like this one.

We handmade a beautiful bamboo arbor for the ceremony, and decorated it with burgundy, blush and white flowers and eucalyptus greens with tulle draped.


Our officiant, Rich, crafted a ceremony unique to Jessica and Peter’s families as he joined their two hearts together on this day. They also had a special part of their ceremony that included a love lock tree, where members of the newly unified family places locks as a symbol of their lives together. There are numerous unique ways that couples can blend their families during their wedding ceremony, including sand ceremonies, unity candles, and more!

For the reception, we created centerpiece wreaths for lanterns with eucalyptus and fern greens with green hydrangea and burgundy greens. We also created cube centerpieces with green hydrangea, succulents, burgundy carnations, blush pink roses, eucalyptus and fern greens. There are so many different combinations of decor that you can do. Pinterest is the best place to start with options if you aren’t sure of what you want!


Their reception included a lot of dancing, toasting, and celebrating the newlywed couple and their beautiful family! Our couple also decided on having a private cake cutting ceremony with no announcement. Is this something that you would consider? Maybe you want that moment just for yourselves? We always stress this, but it’s YOUR day; traditional or nontraditional, do what will make you happy.

The night ended off with sparklers outside. Sparklers are such a fun touch to any wedding celebration, and makes for an awesome photo opportunity!

Congratulations Jessica and Peter! We hope your day was everything that you dreamed it would be and more! We wish you love and happiness always!
