In January 2013, Jon and Molly met through a mutual friend., On their first date, they had lunch, where 5 hours later, they realized they had barely scratched the surface. Later that night, Molly called her dear friend Leslie, and said “This may sound crazy, but I think I just met the guy I’m going to marry.”
Meanwhile, Jon was stuck with a permanent smile that prevented him from forming words to tell anyone anything. With each date, it became more and more obvious that they had finally met their soul mate.
Over 2 years, and countless adventures/laughs/serenades/dances/kisses/memories,
Jon and Molly are living happily ever after.
Molly and Jon married on the beach in LBI under a simple chuppah with 200 of their close family, friends. and fun-loving bridal party! Alex Rivera for Ann Coen Photography captured the gorgeous day. Guests made their way across from the beach to reception at the Long Beach Island Center for Arts Foundation, We loving referred to it as LBIF! Festivities took place inside and out with a family-style dinner under the tent and dancing and dessert inside. Rustic Drift provided custom signage for the evening that the couple was able to take home! All white linens and chairs, set a clean and simple beachy look accented with rustic touches. Lily in the Valley created centerpieces of hydrangea and garden roses, of which echoed the shades blues in the couple’s wedding invitations. Black Eyed Susan’s, a local favorite on the island, provided a delicious, locally sourced menu from their catering division Small Potatoes. The dance floor was packed all evening with sounds from the Fuzzpops. Jon even serenaded his bride with a rendition if Mr. Big’s ” I’m the One who wants to be with You” – it was a hit!!
