MARY & ROBERT | NAVESINK COUNTRY CLUB WEDDING

Mary and Rob were married on a gorgeous Saturday afternoon in September at Holy Cross Church. Mary envisioned their wedding day as an end of summer celebration with a playful laid-back twist.  I knew after their engagement session that their wedding day was going to be lots of fun. Brandi Grooms Johnson assisted in capturing some of the lovely and lively moments of the day with me. Mary and Rob’s William Arthur invitations and programs were simple and classic with touches of their pink and navy blue color scheme, and were made by Write Impression. Mary’s all white bouquet was filled with  roses, gardenias, and calla lillies. I loved how it was wrapped with extra fabric from her gown and adorned with her grandmother’s vintage Tiffany brooch which was also her “something old.”  The brooch was given to her by her grandmother, but it actually belonged to her great grandmother, who gave it to her grandmother when she married her grandfather.  Her great grandmother’s name was Mary Hannan for whom she’s named after…its very special to her!  Alan’s Rumson Florist did a great job on all the florals! Mary’s champagne glitter fabric shoes from the  Jimmy Choo bridal collection added the perfect glamorous touch! Her beautiful gown from Mustillo’s was designed by Lazaro for the Tara Keeley collection. It  looked like it was made just for her!   I loved Mary’s chic bun styled by Keelin from Glen Goldbaum 72. Megan from Blue Mercury did an amazing job on her make-up. Mary borrowed her mom’s pearl necklace which also happens to be her grandmother’s pearls.

The bridesmaids navy blue LulaKate shantung silk dresses from Bella Bridesmaid were so elegant. Their bouquets were filled with pink calla lillies and wrapped with a navy bow and pearl accents. I just love Mary and Rob’s big smiles. This is always one of my favorite moments from a wedding day. Mary realized that some of her bridesmaids were posing for a photo without her and just had to jump into the shot. I think she is adorable! After the ceremony we headed over to Navesink Country Club for the reception. Brian George, Mary’s dad and owner of the menswear emporium, Northshore did a fantastic job of styling Rob and the groomsmen. Rob was so handsome in his khaki poplin suit with a blue and pink check shirt and Vineyard Vines tie.  Rob works with his dad at their family business Middletown Sprinkler Company. Navesink Country Club is one of their clients and boys being boys, Rob just couldn’t resist turning on the system while he and his groomsmen were on the course. Ye Olde Pie Shoppe did a super job on Rob’s groom cake and their wedding cupcakes. Each table represented a different course that Middletown Sprinkler Company had installed a system. Mary and Rob danced their first dance to the Carrie Underwood’s Mama’s Song. Mary danced to Stevie Wonders Isn’t She Lovely with her father, and Rob to danced Lee Ann Womack’s I Hope You Dance with his mother. Rob’s best man, his dad, toasted the couple after reminiscing about life with Rob and his friends growing up. It was so funny as he pulled his notes out and the paper unfurled. Miracle rocked the house and had everyone dancing and singing! Congratulations Mary and Rob!
