Nautical touches at this boathouse estate set up the ambiance of Daria & Justin’s blue coastal wedding.
From the bride: We grew up together, always traveling in the same circle of friends but never had any romantic feelings – more like brother and sister. We often joked about that very idea and laughed at others when they would say “you watch, you two will get married one day” and who would have known they were right! Justin popped the question May 23rd of last year at my grandparents’ shore house, a place very near and dear to my heart. The sky was just past dusk and we had a fire going and were about to make s’mores, so I thought. He got down on one knee and asked me to marry him with a few friends and family present. I said yes! Well actually I said “Are you serious!?” Then said yes!
From the photographer: The ceremony and reception were both held at the one and only Bonnet Estate, one of my favorite venues in New Jersey. I just love everything about it, from the bridal suite to the boathouse chapel. It is just perfect and there are endless picturesque spots throughout the grounds. Daria and Justin had a first look in the English Rose Garden. Justin’s reaction was priceless and he cheered and said “Yes! She wore her hair down!”
