Jaclyn and Mike began planning their LBI Foundation wedding with Bogath Weddings & Events almost two years ago. Any couple that has had to navigate wedding planning in the post-COVID world knows full well what they have gone through. Originally scheduled to get married in the fall of 2020, Jaclyn and mike’s patience was genuinely rewarded with one of the most stunning weather days and perfect beach ceremony weather I’ve ever seen!
We worked hard last year to keep their creative team in tact. Thier creative team is filled with more than a few of the LBI vendor dream team! With a shibori-inspired invitation suite and day-of stationary, Britt from Crisp Designs on Paper knocked it out of the park! Add to that florals from Reynolds Garden Shop and a beach ceremony setup from Rustic Drift, and you have the makings of BI beach wedding perfection!
It was a long hard road, but they got to celebrate with family and friends under a gorgeous Sperry Tent at the LBI Foundation for the Arts & Sciences dancing the night away to JEM and the Vibe. The food and service was provided by expert caterers, Kate and Ally’s . Cocktail hour was on the Foundation’s back deck with beautiful views of the marsh in all of its early-spring glory and music provided by the duo The Pickles. The couple was again rewarded with a sunset portrait session with the exceptionally talented LeAnna Theresa Photography. It’s not too often I get to say that a couple celebrated perfectly, but this time I can!
