melissa + ernesto 3.19.16

this beautiful duo were married on a brisk saturday afternoon in march. {i have to take the credit for the cold, their engagement session was one of the coldest and windiest days on record!} melissa & ernesto chose a palette of navy blue and gold with pops of purple throughout their day. the traditional ceremony was followed by a fun reception at the berkeley in asbury park. lots of gold typography and vintage style signage adorned the reception along with photos of the couple and more food than i've ever seen! a unique video of the couple telling the story of their proposal kicked off the party and the dance floor was always full! such a sweet and loving couple, i was so happy to have been a part of their big day! congrats m + e! xoxo
