Details of your day: We chose the Sterling Ballroom in Tinton Falls because of the ability to customize so many aspects of the wedding, not to mention the ballroom is gorgeous. Victoria was amazing—she was so helpful from the time of our first tour all the way up to our big day. We also loved the convenience of the location. Since we had a lot of guests from out of state, it was so helpful to have our ceremony and reception at the same location as well as access to hotel rooms. When deciding on a theme, we chose to blend together the colors of fall with classic vintage looks. We incorporated this theme by choosing brightly colored fall flower, lace details and vintage lanterns as centerpieces. For favors we wanted to give our guests a taste of fall in New Jersey, so we decided on giving apple-cider donuts from one of our favorite orchards. For pictures we wanted to incorporate the vintage theme and highlight some fall foliage, so we took formal shots at Allaire State Park. Since both of us are music lovers and Cory himself is a musician, we really wanted a band for our wedding. The Nines were amazing. They did a great job keeping our guests dancing the entire night and were so accommodating to all of our requests.
Favorite moment: Our favorite moment was walking up the aisle after just becoming husband and wife! We were overwhelmed with so much happiness as we turned to see all of our family and friends. There was such a rush of emotions in that brief walk out of the ceremony. We had the band play one of our favorite songs during the recessional and it fit the moment perfectly. We both were overjoyed with the fact that we were officially husband and wife—We did it! Now let’s celebrate!
Couldn’t live without: Our family and friends who helped make our day so perfect! It was so awesome to have everyone we love in one room on the most special day of our lives.
Something that went wrong : Our maid of honor’s flight was cancelled the day before our wedding, causing her to miss our rehearsal! Fortunately she was able to find another flight and arrived just in time for our rehearsal dinner.
Favorite detail: Our centerpieces! We found the most perfect lanterns that captured the classic vintage theme we were creating. Our florist did an amazing job accenting the lanterns with beautiful fall flowers that added a pop of color to the ballroom.
