Erica and Jeff were married at Jenkinson’s Inlet, near the boardwalk of Point Pleasant Beach, NJ. It was a rainy weekend, but thankfully we got some beautiful clear weather, and though we couldn’t have the ceremony on the beach as planned, everyone was dry!
Erica and Jeff chose to have the groomsmen standing at the altar at the beginning, holding up various signs – it was hysterical! You can see a few of them here – some others read “That’s what she said!” and “Giggity, giggity, giggity.” It created an atmosphere of laughter right from the beginning!
Erica and Jeff have a fabulous sense of humor, and wanted the ceremony to be light and funny, as well as to really celebrate the family they have together. One of the first things that Erica told me when we talked was that she and Jeff had met at a Halloween party – where Jeff was dressed as a girl… dressed as a bunny. Of course, that went right into their love story!
Their kids were the flower girl and ring bearer, and did a GREAT job! We also included a sand ceremony that the whole family took part in, and poured some sand from the beach on top, too. We also included a hand-fasting, using some boating twine to bring in the beach theme.
One of my favorite touches was when the bride was escorted down the aisle. Erica’s brother’s walked her in, and half way down the aisle, where she was met by her dad, who escorted her the rest of the way, to the altar.
