Caroline: Elegance on the beach

My husband and I had our dream wedding in Cape May, NJ on September 12, 2009!! We got married right on the beach at Jackson St and Beach Ave!

We then had a small reception of about 70 guests at the Virginia Hotel where we dined in the Ebbitt Room! Our cake was created by Kathy Pastiu from the Washington Inn. Flowers were by Cape Winds Florist. Photography was by Aleksey Photography, and our wedding planner was Catherine Walton from Weddings by the Sea. We gave taffy favors from Morrow’s Nut House.

Family and friends all gathered in Cape May for the weekend renting out entire bed & breakfasts and rooms at Congress Hall (the Summer Cottage being where I stayed). What a perfect weekend! Having our wedding in Cape May was so special! Walking through town in my wedding gown and having people stopping to congratulate us was something I will always remember!

We also had a live event artist Carol King Hood that came to the reception and painted a scene live from our wedding! This was my wedding gift to my husband! Cape May will always have a special place in our hearts!! Can’t wait to celebrate out 1st anniversary here!
