A Chic, Nautical Wedding at the Stateroom Long Beach Island in Ship Bottom, New Jersey
Jodi Giambona (25 and a chef) and Joe Lischwe (27 and a consultant) took Ship Bottom, New Jersey, by storm with their own version of a nautical chic wedding. Combined with their friends and family, the couple put together an understated soiree with anchors, ombre hues and seashells. It all started at the reception at the Stateroom Long Beach Island. Guests found their wave-inspired escort cards nestled in a bed of sand, shells and sea glass by aqua anchors. Blue ombre table numbers then pointed everyone to their seats. Once there, they feasted a plated dinner and blue ombre wedding cake with wave-like buttercream ruffles. To take the theme a step further, Jodi and Joe also treated their guests to a cigar bar, complete with a white seashell-covered crate of matching matchboxes. Mary + Roy captured every sea-worthy detail, as well as the couple's hearts. "We felt so comfortable with them from the get-go and loved their work," Jodi says. "As a result, we fully trusted their suggestions on other vendors (makeup, venue) and couldn't have been happier with the results.” Catch every natural and sweet moment of their day, below.
