A Laid-Back Beach Wedding at Versailles Ballroom at the Ramada of Toms Riverin Toms River, Ne w Jersey
Jackie Cassidy (31, entrepreneur) has always been a big fan of Chris Marino (31, entrepreneur)—literally! ?“I had been following his band for a few months because they were amazing!” she explains. It didn’t take long for their admiration to become mutual and they’ve been inseparable ever since. Chris proposed six years later on Christmas. They had just bought a house together and he surprised her with a ring hanging from a “First Christmas” tree ornament. Not long after, they were married in a breezy beach ceremony at Jenkinson's Boardwalk, not far from the inlet Jackie’s father had spent his life fishing out of. Combining her nautical design aesthetic with Chris’s traditional style, the couple settled on an organic color scheme with deep red (his favorite color) and navy accents topped off with musical references.
