The Bride Adrienne Cappelletti, 30, a pharmaceutical sales rep for Forest Pharmaceuticals, Inc. The Groom Justin Faralli, 33, a hospital sales rep for Forest Pharmaceuticals, Inc. The Date April 30 Adrienne and Justin wanted to incorporate their venue’s ocean setting in the day’s details, but still reflect their own style. Vintage postcards put a nostalgic spin on the nautical-prep look.

The monogrammed menu cards were tucked into white hemstitch napkins, accented by a single yellow flower at each setting.
The crisp navy and white programs were tied with knotted hemp and hung from the ceremony chairs.
The venue’s deck, which overlooked the bay, made the perfect ceremony spot.
Adrienne held an all-white bunch of peonies, mini calla lilies and roses, and the bridesmaids carried smaller, all-yellow nosegays of calla lilies and roses.
The cake’s navy rope piping and yellow scallop design were subtle nods to the nautical theme, while fondant ruffles added a trendy bit of texture.
The couple danced their first dance to Sam Cooke’s “Cupid.”
Blue hydrangeas, yellow proteas, and white and yellow roses, set inside white vases wrapped with preppy striped ribbon, decorated the tables.
Adrienne got the chance to incorporate her love for vintage beach postcards into the wedding with Jersey Shore-themed escort cards.
To match Adrienne’s bouquet, Justin wore a white mini calla lily and spray rose boutonniere tied with the same striped ribbon.
Napkins printed with a navy nautical motif were set on the cake table.
Adrienne’s sisters wore matching navy organza dresses, while Justin’s groomsmen wore black suits and silver ties.
The florist surprised the couple by hanging a banner of yellow button mums arranged in the shape of an “F”  from the table.
