Atlantic City Country Club Wedding :: New Jersey Wedding Photographer
How did you meet?
We met working at Seneca High School. We barely spoke for the first few years, but our paths finally crossed at an outing in Philadelphia.
Bob proposed to me at Corson’s Inlet in between Ocean City & Strathmere on the beach. It is one of our favorite spots to go because it is on the bay and is a more private beach than the one in Ocean City. He proposed on his birthday which was a family tradition on his side. I did not know this and found out that both his Dad and brother, Mike, proposed on their birthdays as well. After he proposed he surprised me by having all of our family and friends waiting for us at his parents house in Ocean City.
Tell us about all the details of the wedding!
When planning the wedding we knew we wanted it to be whimsical/romantic. From my dress, to his tux, to the flowers, to the decor, etc. We wanted the reception room to be lit up by candle light. We didn’t care about having over the top decor, but wanted things to be simple and beautiful. I love fall colors and that is why I incorporated the rusty rose color (bridesmaid dresses) into the wedding with the cream, gold, and greenery. We wanted the ceremony to be sweet/short and be personalized to represent our relationship and who we are as a couple. We chose to do stations instead of a sit down dinner because we wanted as much time on the dance floor as we could get! We also wanted to have lots of options for food and for people to be able to try many things and eat as much as they wanted. We also wanted to incorporate and show off the love we have for our families. That is why I wore Bob’s great grandmother’s ring as my “something borrowed/something blue” and had the generations of love photos. We chose to do a donation in lieu of favors and donated to “Give Kids the World” which is an 84-acre, nonprofit “storybook” resort in Florida where children with critical illnesses and their families are treated to weeklong, cost-free vacations. It is completely run by volunteers and we took some of our Seneca students there last year on a trip to volunteer. It was one of the most amazing experiences that Bob and I had together with our students and we are taking students again this year in November.
Favorite moment of the day?
Ah the entire day! It is so hard to pick just one moment, but we both would have to say dancing and partying with our family and friends would have to be the most memorable. Especially at the end of the night when they played the last song, “Shout”, and our friends/family picked us both up in the air. It was awesome to see the entire dance floor packed and everyone having an amazing time!
