A Flower-Filled Pink Wedding at Fiddler’s Elbow Country Club in Bedminster Township, New Jersey
Arielle Jacobs, a recruiter for XO Group, wed Zach Weiner in “whimsical, enchanting fairy tale” celebration at Fiddler’s Elbow Country Club in Bedminster Township, New Jersey. The outdoor ceremony took place in a tent overlooking the golf course. Guests in the first two rows sat in plush velvet love seats, fabric chairs and vintage couches. The aisle was strewn with pink petals, and it led to a large chuppah made of lush roses, carnations and greenery. “Our ceremony was centered around the chuppah,” the bride says. “We signed our Ketubah, broke the glass, recited prayers in Hebrew and did the hora.” Arielle captivated guests in a custom Michael DePaulo wedding dress, which featured a strapless sweetheart top with a lace overlay, a beaded bodice and a tulle skirt. She traded her heels for sparkly sneakers after the ceremony. The groom wore a custom midnight-blue Indochino tuxedo with a black lapel. At the reception, pink flower arrangements of all heights and shapes, candles and greenery took center stage. The night ended with an eclectic four-tier wedding cake and a crowd-pleasing rendition of the hora.
Our favorite #MakeTradition Moment: “We tried to add touches of personalization everywhere we could,” Arielle says. “For our escort cards, we named each table after a place on our college campus, which is where we met, fell in love and got engaged. We had photos of us on campus next to each escort card explaining that history.”
