Real Wedding: Liz + Kyle | Long Beach Island Foundation of the Arts and Sciences

 In Real Weddings

One of the perks of our location just outside of Philadelphia is the complete variety of wedding venues we can access for and with our couples! Though you frequently hear about the weddings we plan and style in the city, we’re also always planning plenty of soirees in the suburbs, down the shore, and beyond. Once the spring arrives, we have to admit we start looking forward to celebrations down the shore the most, especially in Long Beach Island! There are few things quite like ocean views and sophisticated, relaxed style.

Liz and Kyle celebrated their wedding day on May 4, 2019. She’s originally from Hawaii, so a beach wedding was, of course, a must to offer a nod to her roots. However, his family has a house in LBI that the pair love to enjoy together. With that in mind, Long Beach Island Foundation of the Arts and Sciences served as a perfect venue, thanks to its option for a beach wedding across the street and a tented reception shortly thereafter.

L+K each spent their mornings getting ready with their bridesmaids and groomsmen. They both knew they wanted to share a first look together before their ceremony, so they would be able to attend their cocktail hour post-vows. We always love when couples opt for this option! Shortly after their first look portraits were complete, Liz walked down the aisle in the sand toward Kyle. L+K’s florist, Tracey Reynolds Floral Design, did a wonderful job creating a Hawaiian vibe in the middle of New Jersey with an arch adorned with tropical greenery and a bridal bouquet filled with bright blooms. We also loved how Liz and Kyle exchanged Hawaiian leis during their ceremony!

Once they were officially Mr. and Mrs., Liz and Kyle joined together with their guests off of the beach for their cocktail hour. They danced to Van Morrison’s “Someone Like You” to kick off their celebration during their reception, and guests also enjoyed their first peek of their tropical greenery and pineapple filled tent! Because Liz and Kyle celebrated their wedding day on May 4, they also included fun nods to Star Wars. The dance floor stayed busy throughout the entire night, and we enjoyed watching guests sip cocktails from one of our favorite crews, 13th Street Cocktails! We also had the fortune of working with Beke Beau, Rustic Drift, as well as Ann Coen Photography who captured every moment.
