Long Branch, NJ Beach Wedding, McLoone’s Pier House and Bungalow Hotel – Eileen and Eric

I say this often, because I really love what I do, but I loved Eileen and Eric’s wedding. They were married in Long Branch, NJ and had a very very un-traditional, laid back approach to the day. For some reason the absolutely gorgeous couple was nervous about having their pictures taken! Eileen got ready at Bungalow in Long Branch. For fans of Bravo’s 9 by Design, you know that this was the hotel is the work of SixxDesign. The space is incredible and was a great backdrop for Eileen’s modern/romantic gown.
Their reception, held at McCloones, was very unique because it was extremely informal – no assigned seating, everyone just hung out and sat where they wanted. It was basically a fun party (with music by DJ Gaza) for all their friends and family. The night didn’t really didn’t feel like a “wedding wedding,” and that was exactly what Eileen and Eric wanted. Also, it just so happens that the town of Long Branch had fireworks going off right outside the reception – so they got a free firework show to really kick off their marriage.
