Long Beach Island, New Jersey is one of our favorite towns on the shore of New Jersey. We have been blessed a couple times with being a part of weddings that took place on LBI. Each wedding different but each wedding making LBI the focal point due to the couples love for the island.
Jenny grew up spending her summers on LBI (I believe in her Dad's welcome speech he mentioned she was conceived on LBI) and when Jenny met Adam she brought him into the fold that is the love for LBI. Mallard Island Yacht Club was the perfect venue for their ceremony and reception.
Although, Jenny grew up spending her summers and holidays at the shore, she and Adam currently live in Boston, MA. So, our first conversation was actually with Jenny's mom, Lisa. From the get go, we fell for this family. Our first in-person meeting we met with the entire family and they are a riot. Jenny's family was awesome (if you can't tell by her dad's admission during his "Welcome Speech"), you could feel how close they were and home much they loved one another. It was a blast to be a part of this planning process!
Oh, the difference between the bride's day and the groom's day!
Jenny, you were perfection!
I just don't think I would tire from this view and this place, ever.
Jenny & Adam's guests danced all night long and when the choice came to get onto the shuttle and head back to the hotel or go downstairs for the after party came, guests of ALL ages made their way down to the after party which ragged into the wee hours of the next morning!
Thank you to this fantastic family for all of your awesomeness!
Congratulations Jenny & Adam, we wish you two the best of everything!

"I felt like Cinderella...What more could a girl ask for?"
We began the day at a vintage hotel in Wilmington, Delaware where the entire wedding party was busy getting ready for the ceremony. While Chrissy was occupied putting on her white dress with the help of her bridesmaids, she and the rest of the bridal party had no idea that a wild, white snow storm had just begun outside! Fortunately, the wedding ceremony was going to take place in a charming church just minutes down the road and everyone arrived safely.
When it came time for the vows, Chrissy and Hery had come prepared with large parchment paper containing beautifully scripted speeches to each other. Their romantic words melted our hearts and brought tears to a majority of their guests' eyes - including Chrissy's father!
"Our wedding was perfect and stress free"
Even though the day began with a snow storm, it ended with heartfelt toasts and some pretty great dance moves. The reception hall was lit by over twenty golden candelabras and each of the of the thirteen tables was accented with white roses and rosemary-infused olive oil bottles for each guest. After Chrissy and Hery's lovely choreographed first dance and more heart-warming speeches, the party was ready to start! Chrissy, Hery, and all of their guests were on the dance floor the moment the music began, and didn't stop dancing until the end of the night - even the flower girl danced until her bed time.
With the cake cut and the champagne consumed, the night ended in the happiest of spirits. We are so glad to have met such a kind and loving couple and we wish Chrissy and Hery nothing but the best!
