The East Coast Bride

A Bright and Beautiful New Jersey Wedding by Jenelle Kappe

By Krista

You know what your Monday needs…some pink! This wedding has pink in all the right places, the shoes, the gorgeous and unique bouquets, and the pretty pink alternating bridesmaids dresses. Oh yes, and there’s also a chihauhua in a tux and what looks like a ridiculously fun reception.

From the photographer, Jenelle Kappe Photography:

Denise and Michael live in Chesapeake Maryland but had their wedding in NJ, where Denise grew up. Denise was a beautiful Bride, Michael was a handsome Groom. They had stunning pink accents, with altering pink bridesmaid’s dresses, custom branded water bottles as well as his and hers chap-sticks. The detailed that I loved the most from their wedding day was that the Best Man was the Groom’s father, how adorable is that!! Not to mention Dewey, the couples fabulously adorned Chihuahua. It was such a great wedding to be a part of and I love the historic country feel.

Pink bridal shoes

What were your wedding inspirations and overall theme (from the beautiful bride, Denise):

I can’t really say there was a theme other than family, fun and pink! I tried to be creative to make it beautiful but stay within our budget.  We had other life goals besides getting married such as buying our house and filling it!  I also wanted it to be pleasurable for all involved so I gave everyone choices (including my husband – hense the shoes ) rather than dictating decisions. We wanted to include our families as much as we could in our day so I tried to make it laid back and not be too controlling about everything.

What unique details did you include in your wedding that reflects the personality of you as a couple?

My dress was purchased at filenes basement running of the brides event with a team of 7 of my family and friends to help me find it.  I love having fun and a bargain. My pink shoes were also from payless!  My husband picked out his own shoes and was announced with a top hat,  cane and sunglasses.  He makes me laugh…thats one reason I fell in love with him.
