What better place to be than Long Beach Island to officially end Summer and look towards the Fall? Mallard Island Yacht Club is a luxurious venue located at the infamous LBI. We love LBI! Rows of beautiful beach houses, the beach on one side and the bay on the other side. It is a magical place in general and an even more magical place to get married. Ashley and Chris have known each other since they were 16! Love over the summer blossomed when the both worked at an ice cream store in LBI. We even shot their engagement photos where their love began! Ice cream was the theme and it was SWEET! The reception was the perfect place to show their love for ice cream through creative florals and wooden spoons for table numbers!
Ashley, the bridesmaids, and her family were all getting ready together at her family’s home in LBI. Her dress was out of this world gorgeous. The mesh illusion top, romantic lace ruffles and top to bottom buttons made this dress one of a kind. The minute she put the dress on there was a huge sigh from all of the bridesmaids. It was perfect! The guys were already at Mallard Island Yacht Club getting ready in the Groom Shack. Like most weddings, the guys were trying to help each other out with their vests and bowties. Orange and purple were the theme for this wedding day- Clemson colors! The ceremony was sweet just like Ashley and Chris and the kids in the wedding were constant entertainment. They were the cutest by far. They had us cracking up all day. The clouds were epic and the skies were an unreal shade of blue. We couldn’t have asked for better weather to wish these two a happy first day of marriage. The celebration continued inside where the ice cream theme was on point! Each guest had a wooden spoon with an ice cream flavor that would lead them to their table. The pops of orange and purple were gorgeous against the beautiful Mallard interior. Ashley is well known for her amazing baking skills and gifted all of the guests cookies in the cutest polka dot gift cups. And let us be the first to tell you how delicious they were for breakfast the next morning! :) We are so incredibly happy for Ashley and Chris. These high school sweethearts are very special to us and we are wishing them ALL the best in the future.
Cheers to a beautiful wedding and an even more beautiful couple.
