A Classic Fall Beach Wedding at Bay Head Yacht Club

A Classic Fall Beach Wedding at Bay Head Yacht Club

Nina and Megan had the honor of documenting Sarah and Bob’s classic Fall beach wedding at Bay Head Yacht Club. The day was filled with love, emotions, and tons of smiles. It was a bright and sunny Fall day at the Jersey Shore, a perfect day to get married.

Why They Picked Bay Head to Get Married

Sarah grew up in Bay Head, NJ even living for 10 summers on a boat docked at this very yacht club. Her parents now live across the street. They were married in Bay Head on the same weekend in October 26 years prior. Her late grandparents made their family home here in the 1970s, and everyone in town knew Dick and Nancy and their entertainment. Therefore, Bayhead yacht club was the obvious choice for their event.

How They Met 

From the Bride :
“We met at Princeton in the Army ROTC program in the first week of Sarah’s freshman year.  We later learned that we had attended rival high schools (The Hill School and The Lawrenceville School). We started officially dating just two months before Bob deployed to Iraq with the 82nd Airborne. Together we have done 3 years of long distance, two combat deployments, and 7 respective moves together. Bob is getting out of the army the week of our wedding, and we will be starting married life (and short distance dating!) in the Upper West Side of NYC.”

The Details 

We really loved the color pallet of this wedding and think that Flowers by Melinda did an absolutely fantastic job of putting it all together.

From The Bride:

“Our design vision is to have a classic but not stuffy black tie wedding with a coastal elegant aesthetic. We drew inspiration from vintage boathouses and wanted our wedding to have an Old World touch.  We used dark greens, blues, gold, brass and silver— because that’s what color the beach is in the fall. We wanted to have an OUTSTANDING band (Bob is an unreal dancer), an open bar, and all our favorite people.”

Personal Touches

There were a lot of personal touches at their wedding. A special touch that we loved was Sarah’s necklace, a 1927 vintage piece from her late paternal grandmother. We also thought Sarah looked adorable in Bob’s army shirt during bridal prep! 

 

The Ceremony 

Sarah and Bob are devout Christians and wanted their faith in God to be central throughout the day. Therefore,  getting married in a church was a must. Sarah and the wedding party traveled to the church in a trolley and when they arrived Sarah shared a special moment outside with her dad before heading down the aisle. Bob’s face when he saw his bride for the first time was priceless.

A Unique Entrance on a Boat

One of the perks to hosting your wedding at Bay Head Yacht Club is the one of a kind unique way to enter your reception. After their ceremony Sarah + Bob ( and Nina) hopped onto a boat and took a private cruise to their reception. They got to enjoy a glass of celebratory champagne and spend some alone time together. They arrived at the dock with all of their guests watching and cheering them on.
