JANE & CHRISTOPHER | SPRING LAKE BATH & TENNIS CLUB WEDDING
Jane and Chris were married on a spectacular afternoon in October at St. Catharine Church in the historic seaside town of Spring Lake. Jane visualized her wedding day to be fun and sophisticated with a beachy feel! I really enjoyed meeting them in July at their engagement session in Central Park! I’m so grateful that Brandi Grooms Johnson was my second photographer for the day. Jane and Chris’ William Arthur invitations from The Papery in Sea Girt were classic and timeless.I loved Jane’s classically romantic chignon styled by Laura from Milagro Spa in in Manasquan. Jane was absolutely radiant as Jessica DeMarco D’Agostino made the last touches to her makeup.Her beautiful silk-faced satin strapless gown and Alençon lace cathedral length veil were from the Amsale flagship salon in Manhattan. I just loved her Butter bridal shoes! Jane borrowed her aunt’s pearl earrings and bracelet. The bouquets were lovely and filled with vendela roses, hydrangea and green berries. Wallflowers did an excellent job on all the florals!
The bridesmaids deep raspberry Jenny Yoo shantung silk dresses were gorgeous and the perfect choice for an early fall wedding!After portraits we headed over to the Spring Lake Bath and Tennis Club for their reception. It was a perfect evening for an outdoor cocktail hour.Their traditional tiered cake adorned with roses from Chocolate Carousel was so pretty.
The ballroom at the club is one of my favorite venues. It’s truly elegant and the staff did an amazing job of incorporating details that were special to Jane and Chris. Jane and Chris danced their first dance to the popular song It Had To Be You.The toasts were heartfelt and hilarious! Chris’ best man and brother, Mike, told some very funny tales that had everyone in tears! Bruce Saunders Entertainment had the dance floor full all night!After dinner, Jane and her father danced to The Wonder of You while Chris and his mother danced to Kind and Generous with his mother. Congratulations Jane and Chris! You’re an amazing couple with such wonderful friends and families!
