Details of the Day: We choose the Reeds of Shelter Haven in New Jersey as our venue since we both grew up with the majority of our childhood vacations being at local beaches. Our first vacation together was in the Avalon, NJ. On our way to dinner one night I saw the Reeds and it stuck me. When Ryan proposed we both knew we wanted a beach wedding. After seeing this venue together it was love a first sight. We choose a beach chic theme for our wedding with hints of travel and Disney. Our tables were named after cities around our hometowns as well as our hometown sports teams. We included instrumental Disney music to our dinner playlist.
Favorite Part: Our favorite detail was having a Bayfront cocktail hour. Our menu was French split chicken breast and NY strip steak with a raw seafood bar at cocktail hour. Our favorite moment was when we said our vows that we had personally written for one another. We could never live without our family.
What Would You Change?: Honestly, not a single thing went wrong. Our wedding day was absolutely perfect.
