When we say we’ve never seen a more extravagant wedding, we mean it. Emily & Evan’s wedding left us speechless, but now we can’t stop talking about it! The vision they had was coastal, modern, and classic, with a touch of bohemian. They went with a color palette of blues and greens, paired with neutrals of browns, creams, & whites in the decor. It was inspired by the Jersey Shore and their overall love of the ocean.
Emily’s advice for future brides: “Start planning early to make sure you reserve the vendors that you really want and so your stress level doesn’t get out of control!”
The details spoke for themselves all day. The celebration started with welcome “beach bags,” tropical florals, and coastal-inspired accessories. The modern invitations by House of Catherine featured a QR code so guests could easily RSVP to the event. Emily’s bouquet by Fete Urbane was overflowing with the most gorgeous florals and light blue ribbon, matching the bridesmaid dresses. The Jewish ceremony took place under a chuppah adorned with countless flowers and greenery.
The outdoor reception celebration at Linwood Country Club was jaw-dropping! Dinner tables were adorned with florals and candles. A “surf hut” served as the photo booth, courtesy of planner Fete Urbane. “Oystertainers” from Red Oyster walked around and greeted guests with fresh seafood. The team of vendors created an outdoor dance floor under string lights and boho basket chandeliers. Emily & Evan’s love for the shore was highlighted in the table name cards (which were all waterways), oyster shucking during cocktail hour, ice cream man as entertainment, lobster as a meal choice, and salt water taffy souvenirs!
From Emily: “One of our favorite moments was our first dance to “I’ll Be” by Edwin McCain which channeled our love of the 90s. Another moment we’ll never forget was when it rained at the end of the night while we were dancing!”
