A Summer Wedding at Rock Island Lake Club in Sparta, New Jersey

Since Priscilla Choi (23 and a children’s fashion designer) and Daniel Shao (23 and a data analyst) started dating, summer has been a reminder of how much fun they have together. So they turned their laid-back, carefree days into inspiration for a lakeside wedding at Rock Island Lake Club in Sparta, New Jersey. Combined with guests and Priscilla’s business partner at Juniper + Lavender Events, they mixed custom watercolor stationery with garden-style flowers and natural details to pull off the chic seasonal theme. Every program, invitation and escort card had pink watercolor roses in the background and bold calligraphy by Rachelle Tan, her cousin. The notes went with their organic florals from Adel Strauss. Loose bunches of garden roses, dahlias and various greenery overflowed from the satin wraps and breakaway vase. (Their photographer, Cly by Matthew, also captured their flower girl wearing a matching, over-the-top rose headband.) To tie the decor to their natural setting and summer fete, Priscilla and Daniel used breakaway wooden vases, a birchwood arbor and custom animal-inspired table markers. “All of this represented us as a couple,” Priscilla says. “The mix of the soft, sophisticated and whimsical touches with bright pastel colors and rustic details made this evening all the more magical for us, and for our guests.”
