When you think of a destination wedding, visions of an island in the Caribbean, Hawaii or Florida come to mind. But you definitely would not think ofÂ New York or New Jersey. However, the nuptials of Julie and Jared at the Crystal Springs Resort in Hamburg, New Jersey looked more like a getaway than a wedding an hour away from New York. It was so picturesque.
Nestled in the rolling hills and beautiful landscape, this resort provided the perfect setting for this outdoor wedding. It was so spectacular.
Jared and Julie looked wonderful. Her strapless gown blended into the scenery, her train just flowed right in. Her necklace was the perfect accessory. It added to the ensemble without taking away from the beauty of the dress. He wore a gray suit which was a nice selection.
The bridesmaids wore purple gowns and the groomsmen wore gray suits. They blended so well together. The bouquets with the purple and pinks really stood out.
The reception was just as amazing. Let's start with dessert. The cake was fantastic. It was three tiers with flowers along the sides and on top. TheÂ presentation was also wonderful.
The centerpieces were outstanding. The colors of the flowers just glistened with the chandeliers.
If you live in a metropolitan area, don't assume that you have to go far away from home for a destination wedding. You might have a venue like Crystal Springs Resort closer than you think. You could have the wedding of your dreams in your backyard. Wouldn't that be nice?Â As you can see, you can have a laid back wedding and still make it wonderful. The details are the key. Plan your wedding and it will be spectacular. It doesn't matter where it takes place. Remember, it's your day. It's all about you. ENJOY!
