Gina and Ryan tied the knot on September 29th, which turned out to be a very warm, beautiful September day. The couple got ready at their hotel, opting to skip a first look and see each other for the first time in church. The ladies got ready in their matching pajamas while Pin it Up and Pout took care of their hair and makeup. After a reveal with her wedding party, Gina did a reveal with her father, which was a very special moment.
The church ceremony took place at the beautiful St. Elizabeth’s in Avon By the Sea. Gina’s two sisters served as her maids of honor for her big day. Following the service, Gina and Ryan made their grand exit from the church for a very excited group of guests. After some family photos, the group made their way over to the Avon Pavilion for some boardwalk and beach photos. It was the perfect day for them and Jackie Averill Photography beautifully captured the whole day.
After a little break, the real party kicked off at the gorgeous English Manor in Ocean, NJ. Cocktail hour took place in the outside garden, which felt like a giant backyard full of beautiful flowers and even a stream running through it. There was so much food and so many creative stations. The staff at The English Manor was so great to work with and their new renovations really added to the ballroom.
We really enjoyed our time working with Gina and Ryan. We shouldn’t have been surprised by the fact that their wedding party was just as much fun as they were! We had such a great day with an amazing group of people and talented vendors. It was our first time working with Jackie and she was a rockstar- she was so easy to work with and enjoyable to be around and the photos turned out to be stunning. Flowers by Melinda knocked it out of the park, as usual, with the florals and Kristi at the English Manor made our jobs easy! We wish Gina and Ryan lots of happiness together!
