Details of the day: We chose the Molly Pitcher for our reception, right on the Navesink bay, where Steve and I spend a lot of our time kayaking and hiking. We walked in the room and loved everything about its ambiance. Classic beauty. I had a vision and Steve let me run with it. I wanted gold and sparkle…even down to the cocktail straws! I would say my inspiration was gold, sparkle with a vintage feel. I wanted it to feel like us. My biggest focus was having photos of our grandparents and parents on their wedding days, and any special photos of people who are no longer with us, Steve and I with our dogs and just being us. I just wanted it to be very “April and Steve.” Your favorite part: I had an incredible group of friends and family to bounce ideas off and worked with amazing vendors. Just the overall experience being at ease was amazing, because at the end of it all I got to marry Steve and be surrounded by the ones that I love.
