All I can say is: So. Much. Fun! Valerie + Bryan’s wedding at Eagle Ridge Golf Club in Lakewood, NJ was an absolute blast! They are such a cool, fun loving couple and it shows in their photos from the day.
Val started getting ready for her special day at the Ramada Suites in Toms River where her, her mom, and her best friend and maid of honor, shared laughs and got prettied up. Val and her maid of honor were both wearing Tiffany bracelets, Val’s being the bride bracelet and Steph’s was the bridesmaid’s bracelet. They had really cute inscriptions on them and were the perfect compliment to their final look.
When everyone was hair and makeup ready, I followed the crew to Eagle Ridge where Valerie put on her wedding gown. And in that gown she was every bit of stunning!! With her jewelry in place we snapped some portraits and then waited for the ceremony to begin.
At this time Bryan was getting all of his final details ready as well. He had sweet grey and white adidas sneaks with purple laces, a purple camo tie, and skull and cross bone cuff links. I have to say that all of Bryan and Valerie’s details were quirky and fun and all about them.
As you can probably tell by now, their color scheme was shades of purple. Against Valerie’s stunning white gown, the purples looked fabulous in her bouquet which was picked out by Bryan of course. The colors really popped. And they up-lit the room with uplighting from us at Limelight Entertainment. The color splashes of purple on the ballroom walls added so much ambiance to the room.
Bryan saw Valerie for the first time as she walked down the aisle to say I do and become his wife. It was so sweet to see them see each other and get a little emotional. You can absolutely see that they are madly in love with one another.
After a very touching ceremony, we hopped on the E Street Shuttle which Val + Bryan were using to transport guests too and from the nearby Suites at the Ramada. Let me tell you how much fun we had in the E Street Shuttle! Well actually you can see for yourself in the crazy fun photos below. I think this was one of my favorite parts of the day.
Valerie + Bryan danced the night away. And I mean literally danced the night away. Their wedding band Up Next rocked the reception and Val and Bryan never sat down! So as they always say, dance like no one is watching, and these two love birds definitely danced like no one was watching and it was fabulous. I had so much fun being on that dance floor that night. The energy was perfect.
Now on this particular day it was raining, but in no way, shape, or form did this bother Val + Bryan. And I set up a photo to perfectly capture the beauty of the rain and the day. (Also see below)
Oh and of course I can’t forget to mention Bryan’s super cool skull ring that fits him perfectly because his nickname is Scully.
I really cannot think of a better word besides FUN to describe this couple, this wedding, and this day. It was so much stinkin’ fun!! Thank you so much for having us there!!
