Jill and Sean had the most beautiful September day on their wedding day. They both got ready just a few doors down from each other at the Hilton Garden Inn in Lakewood. When I arrived the girls were finishing up their makeup and everyone’s hair was complete. It’s always nice to plan to finish beauty prepping with a little time to relax before having to jump in your dress and head off to first look.
Jill had time to sip champagne with her girls and open the sweetest card and gift from her groom, Sean. Before we knew it, it was time for Jill to step into her Allure Bridal designed wedding gown and oh my goodness, did she look absolutely stunning in it! This dress fit her like a glove and had the most beautiful detailing on it. She put on her jewelry and slipped on her Kate Spade bridal shoes and we were off to the first look at Spring Lake.
Before I continue this love story of a day I must add that Jill put superior thought into all of her details. Every color, every floral, and every personal touch complimented each other. Her palette was a dusty rose pink, with touches of rose gold, ivory, and pale greens. And her bridesmaids were in a dusty blue dress which made the florals from Kirk Florist pop even more and all of the girls looked gorgeous in them!
Jill and Sean had their first look at Spring Lake overlooking the water. It was so romantic and had everyone tearing up. Jill got very emotional when she saw her handsome groom and the look on Sean’s face when he saw Jill was priceless. He was in awe!
We took some photos around the lake and then it was time for their wedding ceremony at Crystal Point Yacht Club. Their ceremony took place right at sunset and overlooked the Manasquan River. It was simply beautiful! Reverend Wayne Ackerman had everyone laughing and crying as he told the love story of Jill and Sean and pronounced them husband and wife!
It was now time to have some cocktails, appetizers, and mingle amongst their guests. Jill and Sean entered their cocktail hour to a traditional Irish bagpipe player and started to greet their guests.
As soon as everyone had a bite to eat and something to drink it was time to get the party started. And DJ Chris Marino of Limelight Entertainment did exactly that! Everyone was on the dance floor having fun. Even Jill seemed surprised that Sean was out on the dance floor getting down. They danced and sang the night away with all of their favorite people.
We are so thankful and honored to have been able to provide the soundtrack and to capture all of the moments for Jill and Sean’s wedding day!! What an amazing day!
