Wedding #2: Chapel Ceremony and Full Reception with Friends and Family

Stephanie’s family had been members of the Little Egg Harbor Yacht Club for 3 generations and a wedding in Beach Haven would fulfill all of her lifelong dreams. The Club had become a summer staple for Stephanie and Matt from the beginning of their relationship: they went to weekly happy hours here, had a beach house within walking distance, and Matt even proposed to Stephanie here a year before their wedding day.

So on the twenty-first of September, the day after their intimate Catholic Church wedding where Matt’s parents as sister had been married, Stephanie and Matt had their full Wedding Day. Hair-and-make-up, wedding party photos, first-look, all the tradition of a wedding day and invited their larger guest list to attend. They had their marriage blessed at Holy Trinity Church, and after a boat getaway ride for the wedding party, they made their grand entrance at the Little Egg Harbor Yacht Club for the reception of their dreams.

Stephanie and Matt took weekly dance lessons to learn a choreographed first dance and surprise all of their guests. They chose the first song they sent to each other in high school for their first dance: Never Stop (wedding version) By Safety Suit. These two nailed the whole routine, especially their final dip!

Stephanie and Matt’s wedding weekend was full of emotion from the moment they entered Sacred Heart to their sparkler exit at the Little Egg Harbor Yacht Club. They gracefully blended family traditions, celebrated in a way that was true to both of them, and honored a love they built over ten years. Congratulations, sweet friends. Your love is incredible and your wedding weekend was an honor to witness!
