On May 5th, 2018, blushing bride Ashley and her swooning groom, Joe, tied the knot. Ashley’s morning started with getting ready at her beach-themed home in Toms River. Where her friends and family doted over her with smiles, laughs, and gifts.
The bride met her groom at Jake’s Branch Park near a cherry blossom tree, the only one blooming in the area and sure to bring them good luck on their special day. She appeared in a beautiful lace gown filled with laughter. After sharing a few sweet moments captured by their New Jersey Photographers and NJ videographer, they were off to the altar.
The Pine Lake Park Clubhouse offered the perfect setting for their romantic evening. The cabin provided a cozy atmosphere for their entire party to surround Ashley and Joe with love. This historic venue is decked out in floor to ceiling wood, to then be complemented with giant circular chandeliers hanging throughout the center of the room, giving this intimate space a very grand vibe.
It started with the ceremony, which took place in a tent in the sand. A lovely spot near the Clubhouse venue. It was beautifully decorated and offered the most stunning location to begin their union. Surrounded by pastels the couple said their vows, gave a sweet kiss then continued inside to the Clubhouse.
The Pine Lake Park Clubhouse gave the perfect vibe for this rustic affaire. The pastel colors theme followed Ashley and Joe to their reception, which perfectly contrasted with the wooded surroundings. Lastly, it was the personalized DIY touches that brought everything together. As guests entered the clubhouse, they were greeted with a cocktail and taco bar. This fantastic combination was no doubt inspired by their Cinco De Mayo date, putting everyone in a very festive mood. Then when everyone had their share of pico de gallo and guacamole, the couple brought out their champagne piñata for the wedding party to smash!
