The summer season is in full swing, and Memoreys by Morey’s Piers has been busier than ever! Every weekend has been jammed packed with weddings, vow renewals, corporate functions, rehearsal dinners, birthday parties, and family reunions…. just to name a few. Last weekend we had the honor of hosting Danielle & Brian’s Wedding, and since I haven’t had much time to share some of the previous weddings or events with you, this is one you just shouldn’t have to miss!
Brian & Danielle’s wedding weekend began Friday evening with a quick rehearsal on our beach, and they were soon off to begin celebrating with their closest family members and friends at our very own Joe’s Fish Co. on 25th Street at Surfside Pier. Since weddings aren’t just about the dress and the details, I have to add that as I watched the bride & groom-to-be (at that point) walk around and thank everyone for coming, you could tell that it was a celebration, and some of the guests they didn’t get to see as often as they would like to. They shared hugs and laughs, took lots of photos, and even got a little dancing in before the big day.
The next day is always the really exciting part! While my staff and I are busy putting together all of the important details, the couple was getting ready to say “I do” to create memories they will have forever. The bride & groom chose to see each other prior to the ceremony to get rid of the jitters, as well as to get tons of photo opportunities. Danielle walked down the aisle of beach sand, and Brian was holding back tears! (So sweet!) After the ceremony, everyone came up to the reception space, which was exactly what Danielle had envisioned when I first met her over a year ago when she began planning. She wanted a relaxed, fun, clambake type of wedding on the beach, that set her special day apart from everyone else’s. It’s safe to say that is exactly what she got:
Red & White Checkered Linens draped the picnic tables with Burlap runners. Wildflowers were put in small, colored vases and scattered across the tables. Silver buckets for the left over shells were placed on each table, as well as colorful starfish for decoration. A good time was had by all as they danced the night away after a delicious dinner.
Congratulations Danielle & Brian!
Love, Stephanie & the whole Morey's Piers Team
