It doesn’t get much better than spending a warm summer night on the Jersey shore, unless you’re celebrating love and a happily married couple at a location right on the water. It’s beautiful photographs like Jamie and Eric’s that truly represent “the calm before the storm”. Although this locale was destroyed during Hurricane Sandy, this seaside soiree has us not only reminiscing of sweet distant memories, but serves as a gentle reminder that there is hope for the future of the New Jersey coastline.
“The end of August is bittersweet, yet an exciting time for people (like us) who grew up on the New Jersey coast. Those few short months of summer heat start to dwindle away and the occasional breeze of cool air starts to give this feeling of new beginnings. But something else happens, too. The vacationers head home and the Jersey shore returns to its simple and beautiful form. It’s the way that we love it and the best time of the summer to beat the shore traffic, grab a good book, and soak in the last of what the beautiful summer days have to offer…in peace. That is why we chose August 25th. It was one of the last weekends of the summer and that nostalgia made it feel so right.”
“I only tried on about four gowns before I tried this one on and I knew it was the one. I felt like Marilyn Monroe in this dress! My mom, sisters, and best friend’s faces said it all when I walked out. I felt sexy and elegant.”
Joselyn of Majestic Entertainment captured the essence of the wedding day beautifully in a photojournalistic approach. Not only did she help calm the brides nerves before the church, but made everyone feel comfortable being in front of the camera. “Joselyn has such a great soul and has an incredible personality. [We] had a blast taking the beach pictures!” exclaimed Jamie.
Jamie’s bridesmaids wore floor-length pink silk and chiffon dresses with a flower accent.
When it came time to choose a reception location, The Water’s Edge made a great impression on Jamie and Eric. “We wanted a venue that matched our personalities. We had family coming from other countries so we wanted a strong representation of New Jersey. We also knew friends of friends who were married at the venue and they loved it. The window that looked out over the ocean (right behind the sweetheart table) was a great selling point. They also had lights to shine out over the water so everyone could see the ocean at night.” commented the groom.
Jamie and Eric shared their first dance as newlyweds to Etta James’ “At Last”, which the bride pre-recorded. “I wanted to showcase my wife’s beautiful voice and I think everyone really felt how personal our first dance was.”
Cocktail hour served guests a variety of options including a raw bar, mashed potato station, and taco station. Dinner began with a mozzarella and tomato appetizer followed by a strawberry and walnut summer salad. For dinner, guests had a choice of salmon, chicken Marsala or filet Mignon. Crème brulee and a chocolate fountain was served for dessert, in addition to wedding cake.
Tell us about your wedding proposal: Eric surprised me and proposed in our apartment when I least expected it. He decorated everything with flower petals and candles and hid a camera behind the couch to capture my reaction. He also played a video of pictured of us through the years and set it to the our favorite song, “No One” by Alicia Keys. I was a teary eyed mush and immediately knew that this was the start of something great.
Bride’s favorite memory of the day: Reading our vows to each other and looking into Eric’s tear filled eyes was a moment I will never forget.
Groom’s favorite memory of the day: My favorite memory that I won’t ever forget was the first time I saw Jamie walking down the aisle. It was difficult for me to choke back all the emotion I felt. She looked absolutely beautiful and literally took my breath away. Her dress was even more beautiful than I had imagined.
What was the most exciting part of planning your wedding? For me it was just experiencing new things with Jamie. We got to know each other a lot better and the process as a whole was fun. I would do it all again in a heartbeat (even with all the stress).
Where did you go on your honeymoon? We decided to be practical and splurge on a new home first to start our future together, The cruise is coming soon and we are very excited.
Do you have any advice for couples that are planning their wedding? Have fun and don’t stress about the little details too much because life is beautifully flawed. Nothing will go exactly the way you want it to so don’t try to control every aspect of the day. Just go with the flow and enjoy every moment because it’s over in a heartbeat.
What are you currently enjoying or looking forward to as a couple? We are currently enjoying being first time homeowners and look forward to becoming first time parents this Fall!
