Amanda & Gregs' Beach Wedding

Amanda and Greg tied the knot on a very warm September day at Ocean Place Resort in Long Branch, NJ. We first met the couple over a year ago when they booked us and we couldn’t wait for their big day to arrive.

The bride and groom both got ready at Ocean Place but chose not to do a first look. Lacey Alagia Hair and Makeup got the wedding party all set and looking beautiful. Moments were captured by the talented Yan Schwartzman. The bride herself actually crafted her bouquet and those of the bridal party. They were so unique and comprised of shells- fitting for her big day on the beach!

The ceremony took place on the beach and was conducted by the groom’s uncle. Following the ceremony, guests left the beach for a short break while the bride and groom took some photos. Shortly after, cocktail hour began on Ocean Place’s patio.

The reception took place on the beach under a beautiful tent from Sperry Tents. The table linens were layered with a beach netting and the centerpieces were lanterns with rose gold and gold shells surrounding them. Amanda also created the gold bottle table numbers herself!

The band, Mr Lovejoy , entertained guests throughout the evening. Amanda and Greg also had a special table for their dog, Haley, who had recently passed away. In lieu of favors the couple was making a donation and also offered guests some “doggie bags” with treats to take home for their four legged friends.

Before the evening concluded, a bonfire was started on the beach where guests could make smores and light sparklers. Overall, it was a beautiful day for a lovely beach wedding. We had such a blast with Amanda and Greg- such a genuinely nice and fun couple! We with them lots of luck and happiness in their future together!
