For some odd reason today, although it is autumn, mother nature seems to be beckoning the winter. It is cold. And what way to warm myself up then to think of the warmth of the beach. We were lucky to DJ this wedding at the lovely Stateroom on Long Beach Island. That piece of road from the Garden State Parkway to LBI on route 72 is dabbled with beautiful wedding locations. We waved at the Bonnett Island Estate as we drove by. Rob worked there not to long ago and that site is stunning. A few steps away is the new Mallard Island Yacht Club that I’m sure will be host to many a wedding as it is slated to open shortly. Then we come upon the Stateroom. Elegant and modern with the feel of the beach without the casual air that it sometimes dictates.
Subtlety is at its core here. And our bride and groom that day had the affinity to pick the design that would really embrace that ideology. An elegant beach theme without being kitschy.
My favorite detail was the vintage ride they decided on
The color scheme reflected the blue of water. The details evoked the whimsy of sand and shells
And or course – what would a beach wedding be without the opportunity to save our female guest feet from the pain of their heels by providing flip flops in neutral tones to match their respective outfits. Especially when the salsa & merengue got underway and Rob had them out in true Colorblind Productions style.
I can not fail to mention the beautiful sunset guests have a view of
This is also the wedding that I had the infamous in the mens room incident. This reminds me, I still didn’t get a picture of that!
