Classic Coral

I have had the pleasure of knowing this bride since junior high (!) so you can imagine how happy I was to attend her beautiful wedding. After meeting in college, Shana and Josh dated for seven years before tying the knot on a gorgeous June day, and things could not have been more perfect!

The ceremony was held outdoors in front of a sparkling waterfall at Branches in NJ, and in a unique twist on tradition, a few close friends and family (including yours truly- thanks guys!) read lines from a poem written by the groom’s mother- SO SWEET!

The affair’s distinctive qualities carried over into the reception, where guests sat at tables designated by songs that held meaning for those seated and the couple- the dj played the various tunes all night, announcing which table should be on the dance floor (coordinating flip flops were even given to the ladies so they could dance the night away)- such a fun idea!

Also adding to the flair were stunning coral up-lighting that lit the entire room with an enchanting glow and tall centerpieces just overflowing with fresh hydrangea and peach roses, an ideal touch.

I had an absolute BLAST at this wedding and am thrilled to be able to call this amazing couple my very close friends.

    I not only love all the coral, but I think I am now obsessed with how they coordinated each table by songs that had meaning to the guests at that table. That is such a unique idea. Everything looked gorgeous!
