How One Couple Combined Family Traditions with Ease and Grace

Two weddings in two days?! That’ exactly what Stephanie and Matt did with their two-part coastal inspired Riverton and Long Beach Island New Jersey Wedding. When this couple began dreaming of their perfect fall wedding, family tradition was paramount and they knew they had to have two weddings.  Both Stephanie and Matt had dreamed of tying the knot at places important to each of their families. However, since both special spots were an hour and a half apart, Stephanie and Matt made the most logical choice which was to host two weddings over two days!

Wedding Number 1: Intimate Catholic Mass with Family

For Matt, his parents and older sister had been married at the Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Riverton, New Jersey. He knew how much it would mean to be married there as well.

It’s common today to have a weekend-long wedding celebration, whether that’s a welcome party the day before your wedding or a brunch the day after your wedding. Your wedding day goes by so fast, to have a whole weekend for your guests and families to celebrate being together is the way to go (in my humble opinion). Therefore, Stephanie and Matt invited their family and wedding party to celebrate their marriage ceremony at Sacred Heart Catholic Church, followed by a welcome party in Long Beach Island, open to all guests.
