Melissa and Matthew at The Breakwaters at the Dunes
We met in high school through mutual friends!
Matthew surprised me on Christmas night when all of my family was over.
We went with a very neutral color palette—a beautiful mauve with whites and ivories. Pampas grass was a major key as well.
I grew up going to Sea Isle every summer. When I was little, I would take walks on the beach and wonder what my life was going to be like and who I would marry. I swore I’d get married right on that very beach. And that dream came true with the most dreamy, magical wedding day.
My Matthew Christopher gown was a dream. I put it on and instantly felt like a bride. It was just enough sparkle without over-doing it. The train on the dress is out of this world! And what really tied it all together for me was the shell-like details throughout the bodice. I wish I could wear it every day.
The moment I stopped at the beginning of the aisle and Matt turned around to see me for the first time. Chills!
Pampas grass! It made all the difference and added the perfect touch of boho beach-chic.
Honestly, not one single thing went wrong.

Planning is stressful but everything will be so perfect in the end!
Due to Covid, we hung out down at the Jersey Shore for a few days.
