Laura's vision for her wedding was positively Shakespearean. In particular, she was inspired by the ethereal quality of A Midsummer Night's Dream. Her NJ wedding planner helped her design an event that was elegant and just a little woodsy, without going too rustic. Just a hour away, they found a resort venue that would allow them to feel removed from the city and truly relax. The sweeping lawns and beautiful gardens were a perfect fit for this sweet event.

Laura and Andrew also chose to include their pet in their wedding day. Archer proudly marched down the aisle in his dashing wedding day attire. The ceremony was set against a river with rolling hills in the background. Afterwards, the couple celebrated with their guests at a sophisticated reception to complete this lovely NJ wedding.

Our Favorite Things:

  • The floral-covered leash and black bow tie for Archer (their adorable Beagle)
  • The romantic ceremony arch covered in greenery, roses, and hydrangeas
  • The tall reception centerpieces in mercury glass vases (the vases were very narrow, so as not to interrupt conversation)
