Picture Perfect Bay Head Yacht Club Wedding
I’m ecstatic to be sharing some of my favorite moments from Erin and Devin’s gorgeous Bay Head Yacht Club wedding! This sweet couple was married last September and their whole day was completely perfect! Erin and Devin chose Bay Head for their wedding because it has such a special place in their hearts. As Erin explains, “Devin introduced me to this shore town early in our relationship, and it instantly became our happy place! We’ve spent our summers together in Bay Head for the last five years. We couldn’t imagine getting married anywhere else! We are beyond grateful that our incredible friends and family traveled from near and far to celebrate our wedding. I loved showing all of our out-of-town guests my favorite Jersey Shore towns!”
Erin and Devin each spent the morning of their yacht club wedding excitedly preparing with their family and wedding party. I loved capturing all of the beautiful details they chose for their wedding! This Jersey-Shore-loving couple went with a classic, timeless design aesthetic accented with pops of color. The pale blue, navy, white, green, and coral color palette was perfect for the beach-y feel of their wedding! The invitation suite designed by Simply Jessica Marie was absolutely stunning and perfectly captured Erin and Devin’s style! I adored the cute pajama sets Erin gifted to her bridesmaid – they made for the sweetest and comfiest getting ready photos! Erin’s first look with her father was full of so much joy – I loved capturing this moment before Erin traveled to see Devin for the first time on their wedding day!
First Look with an Ocean View
Erin and Devin chose to share a special first look at the Bay Head Yacht Club’s boathouse! As soon as Devin turned and saw his beautiful bride, he could not stop smiling! I loved capturing the love and excitement between Erin and Devin before their wedding ceremony! The whole wedding party had a blast traveling in the classic red trolley!
Joyful Jersey Shore Wedding Ceremony
Erin and Devin’s wedding ceremony at Sacred Heart Church was absolutely perfect! The whole church was filled with joy as Erin and Devin made their vows and professed their forever love to each other. After a lovely first kiss as husband and wife, Erin and Devin celebrated all the way down the aisle before heading to the beach!
Beautiful Beach Wedding Portraits
Following their sweet ceremony, Erin and Devin took to the beach for gorgeous wedding day photos! They laughed with their friends and family, shared loving moments, and Devin even broke out a pair of shades for some pictures! The gorgeous blue ocean was the perfect backdrop for these fun photos!
Romantic Boat Ride for Two
Erin and Devin made quite the nautical entrance into their reception! The newlyweds shared a boat ride into their cocktail hour and it was one of my favorite moments from their yacht club wedding! This romantic boat ride was the perfect opportunity for Erin and Devin to spend time together as husband and wife before the celebration started! Their guests enjoyed cocktail hour on the deck overlooking Barnegat Bay and cheered as Erin and Devin’s boat arrived at the Bay Head Yacht Club wedding!
Romantic Yacht Club Wedding Reception
Every inch of Erin and Devin’s Bay Head Yacht Club wedding reception was decorated beautifully! Katydid Florals perfectly captured the couple’s design style and brought their vision to life! I adored the watercolor menus at each place setting, accented by blue and white seersucker napkins. Each table was adorned with varying sized julep cups and classic silver bowls with blossoming hydrangeas in various shades of blue. Clusters of white pillar candles added a soft, romantic feel to the room. The effect was stunning, and I loved capturing all these beautiful details Erin and Devin worked so hard to bring together!
A Night to Remember
I loved the energy of all the guests having a blast on the dance floor to the Pat Roddy Band! During the reception, Erin and Devin snuck away for a few moments to pose for gorgeous backlit wedding photos against the velvety sky. The two shared a kiss on the deck before heading back in to celebrate their wonderful yacht club wedding!
