From Krissy: I'm a Jersey girl born and raised and it's a part of me that I will always love. For the last four years I lived in New England until my husband was promoted to a national position in his company last June. We began our relocation to Raleigh, North Carolina, but sold our house in a short six days.
While we began building our new home down south, we moved back to New Jersey to stay with some family. I was glad to be back to my roots at the beach. There is just something so serene about growing up by the water. The sound of crashing waves puts your soul at ease, the feeling of sand between your toes brings you back to your childhood days of building endless sandcastles and the smell of a salt water breeze reminds you of all those sunsets you watched sitting on the sand, snuggled under a blanket with your childhood love.
Moving to Raleigh will be the furthest I have ever lived from the beach and that was a big deal to me. When I decided to plan a New Jersey styled shoot with some of my favorite local vendors, I knew I wanted to capture the romance of living on the shore. If I could have a do-over of my wedding day this is exactly how I envision it with shades of soft blues that set the mood of tranquility, located in a secluded spot that only locals know about tucked away in the trees of the Manasquan inlet. The decor has an elegant feel with pops of sea glass, oyster shells & driftwood to remain true to the shore location. All of the linens & the bride's tulle skirt style dress are long and flowy to accentuate the sea breeze. There is a lot of natural vegetation on the inlet, so we wanted our florals to compliment that. A oversized, hand-tied bouquet was chosen with coordinating centerpieces that were placed in the drawers of our sweetheart table to give it more dimension.
As a farewell to the Jersey shore, I wanted to plan one more shoot that captured all the beautiful elements the beach has to offer. Let's face it, what could be more romantic than saying "I do" at sunset with the water and pastel skies as your backdrop?
