Alli and James got married on Sunday, May 15, 2016 at the Watermark in Asbury Park, NJ. And Every. Single. Thing. that day was exactly as it should have been: fun, carefree, happy, and easy. Alli and James made for a picture perfect couple. How do I know? Because I have amazingly beautiful photography from Lauren Schwarz Photography to prove it!

Alli and James set the stage with a modern purple invitation. It’s clean lines and color palette set the stage for their wedding.


The invitation suite’s color palette tied in perfectly with the bride’s decision to have a bridal bouquet of nothing but gorgeous and beautifully scented lilac and bridesmaids bouquets that used Bells of Ireland (a traditional choice for this Irish bride). The bridesmaids (the bride’s nieces) also wore beautiful purple dresses, the same length, but with different details. They looked absolutely stunning!


The bride wore a perfect (for this Jersey Shore wedding) white flipflops while the groom let his love for comics show with his choice of socks. How much fun are they!?!

How much fun were they having getting their picture taken?! Asbury Park, NJ is full of fun architecture and great murals. If you haven’t been there, go! If you wanna get married someplace really hip and cool, go!

And, who can forget Rocky!? Truly the “Best Dog!” He was so well behaved. Even during the ceremony, he shed his tears of happiness quietly. Seriously, the dog cried. And it was one of the sweetest things ever. Ever! Not to be out done by Jame’s grandmother who facetimed with the entire wedding ceremony.

Alli and James also included a fun Jenga guest book for their guests. What a great way to look back at your wedding day!

They also had these amazing fun signs in the bathrooms!!! Not just they typical bathroom basket would do for these two! No way. They had to have these hysterical signs to go with them!

And the blog (nor the night) would have been complete without a huge shout out to Purple Glaze for their amazing donut display! OMG! Delish and fun!!!
