I was very excited to begin working with them as soon as I saw that their decor involved nautical themes and boats!! Melissa had chosen all of the elements so tastefully, and I helped them execute their vision, and guide them in their remaining decisions as their special day drew closer!
The ceremony took place at Harbor View Park, in Cape May, NJ- overlooking the Marina which was filled with rustic boats! (It truly was a gorgeous backdrop!) A bagpiper played as guests arrived to the candlelit and hydrangea pail-lined pavillion and adjoining gazebos. The chair rentals were provided by Weddings By the Sea.
The highlight of the day was the transportation that the Bridal Party used to get from the Marina to the Reception venue- Frank's father's BOAT!!! What a fun way to arrive....
Melissa and Frank were able to incorporate their Irish/Scottish heritage with the bagpiper and the Groom and Groomsmen's wardrobe! It was so unique! Not to mention, the ADORABLE ring bearers and flower girl- who were dressed in little sailor outfits!!
Following the touching ceremony, the reception began at the well-known Lobster House. Melissa and Frank really showcased their personalities and added personal touches throughout the decor- with such items as their table numbers, card box (it was a treasure chest!!) and place cards (sand dollars!!)
Jack from Above and Beyond DJs kept the evening flowing smoothly and the guests thoroughly entertained!!!
Many thanks to Ben Westog, who provided us with these great photographs!! Ben was very unintrusive and really took some great shots!!
Steve from Per Sempre Videos (he's new to the Cape May area- and really needs some recognition!! His work is fabulous!!!), put together this "recap" of Melissa and Frank's Wedding Day.
Hope you both had an amazing honeymoon in Ireland and Scottland!! Congratulations, once again!
