You want to be AT the Jersey shore, but not necessarily ON the Jersey shore; I have the perfect place for you; Branches, in (appropriately enough) West Long Branch. My cool couple, Brigitte and Steve, had an unseasonably warm day for their pictures in the lovely garden, and then a short, sweet ceremony in the cozy ballroom.  Now, they met in marching band, all the way back in high school, so their processional was performed by a four piece  saxophone group! Vivaldi never sounded so hip!

The team at Branches was super; Chris, the Maitre’D had every favor in place and every polished glass poised for the champagne toast.  Cindy and Stacia gracefully calmed the pre-ceremony jitters and took care of every detail, from snacks for the bridal party to orchestrating their walk down the aisle.Maybe my favorite touch though was their table cards. Because ‘ Da Shore” had such a big part in the couple’s courtship, every table had a vintage, “Greetings from the Jersey shore” postcard to lead guests to their seats.
