Nicole wore a stunning blush-colored, mermaid style, a fitted wedding gown that had a ton of gorgeous sequin and detailing. She complimented her look with a simple string of beautiful pearls that she borrowed from her grandmother as her borrowed item. She also had a gorgeous crystal and gold headpiece that she wore in her hair that shimmered from across the room. Her bouquet was white hydrangea and white lavender roses. Nicole was stunning and ready for her first look with Jesse.
Nicole and Jesse had their first look at the Manasquan Reservoir on a tree-covered path. Jesse was so excited to see his beautiful bride. He couldn’t take his eyes off of her. They were so sweet together while we stayed and took photos of them before their ceremony. We had some fun with their bridal party as well and then headed off to the church to get Nicole and Jesse married!
Nicole and Jesse were married at the CrossPoint Church in Farmingdale, NJ. The new Mr. and Mrs. exited the church as all of their closest friends and family blew bubbles and cheered.
Their wedding reception was held at the Sterling Ballroom in Tinton Falls, NJ. They chose purple uplighting to accent the details and add to the ambiance of the room. Nicole and Jesse also picked out a very nice monogram to light up onto the dance floor.
One of my favorite parts of the night was when they did the garter/bouquet toss. It was actually pretty funny, you see, the young man that caught the garter got cold feet. He couldn’t do it when it was time to put the garter on the young lady, Tyler, that caught the bouquet. I’m sure that Tyler was a little nervous about this whole scene too, so DJ Chris Marino flipped the script. Chris had the young man sitting in the chair and Tyler had to slide the garter onto HIS leg. It was hilarious!!
Nicole and Jesse saved a little surprise for their guests at the end. All of their guests were given white gloves and white glasses and then DJ Chris Marino cut the music and cut the lights and threw on the Black Light Party. It was time to get funky. All of the glasses, gloves, and anything else that was white started to glow in the black lights. Everyone threw their hands in the air and partied the rest of the night away. It was awesome!!
A big shout out to Nicole, Jesse, and their families for having us be a part of their amazing wedding day. Thanks again!!
