We have been working with couples and families since 2015 to plan the stress-free weddings of their dreams.

We also love planning small events and anniversaries! Some of our favorite events are vow renewals and milestone celebrations, often with couples whose wedding we planned! So, if you're looking for help planning a special event like a bridal or baby shower, sweet sixteen, or a special family milestone event like anniversaries or mitzvahs, reach out to us, because we'd love to help make it perfect.

So, whether your marriage is just getting started or if you are celebrating many years together, let us know. If you're planning a special shower or a milestone with your family or friends, we are here to make it beautiful and stress free.

We would love to be a part of helping you plan!

BELOW is a small sample of the weddings & events we've had the pleasure of PLANNING ON LONG BEACH ISLAND.

Bogath Weddings & Events has had the pleasure of working with some of the wedding industry's leading publications and creative entrepreneurs to create a body of work that has been featured in publications and online wedding blogs, from local to international. We have been working with Bay Magazine for over three years to produce quality editorial and have also been featured in NJ Bride Magazine as well as numerous online publications. 

So, if you are interested in creating custom photography to promote your venue or products, let us know! We take on a very small number of these types of projects each year. But we strongly believe that it is one of the best ways to both network and create quality photography to help build a small business. 

We also love that these give us the chance to be exceptionally creative and do things that will provide wedding day inspiration to our couples. There are ideas in here that we wanted to try, and when they come out right, we hope you will want to as well!
