From the Bride…We had the most wonderful time at our wedding and will never forget the entire journey from start to finish! Though for Jesse (my new husband) and me, deciding on what we wanted and what “look” we were going for was challenging at times. I was very clear on what I didn’t like but was unsure of what I loved. Living in Hoboken, NJ we looked at a variety of venues from wineries and country clubs in NJ, lofty spaces in NYC, and beach front spaces at the Jersey Shore. After seeing so many spaces that looked the same, we decided we wanted a combination of urban, chic, modern, with a touch of something nautical (Jesse and I love the beach). I was starting to think that the venue I wanted just didn’t exist in the area! When I saw Martime Parc for the first time, I knew immediately that it had every element that we wanted…a chic, modern feel with gorgeous views of Lower Manhattan, Jersey City, and the Statue of Liberty. And to top it off, because it’s right on the Hudson the marina provided us with such beautiful boats to compliment the city view!
Our florist brought the room to life by using bright shades of coral, yellows, and pinks to create centerpieces that were unique and not your typical wedding centerpieces. She created the entire table scape and the simple lines, bright colors, and various heights on the tables captured my vision to a tee!
To go with our “modern/sophisticated” look, I opted for taupe J.Crew cocktail dresses for the bridesmaids in a variety of styles worn with nude patent leather pumps. The groomsmen wore rented tuxedos but to make the look a little less formal, we purchased black neck ties, nixed the vest/cumber-bun, and added suspenders. The vibrant colors in the bouquets and boutonnieres really popped against the neutral attire!
Our wedding was the best day of our lives and though it took some work and time to put it together, the journey was completely worth the outcome! I would not change one element of the day…it was truly a perfect wedding!
