See How This "Ring Bearer" Stole The Show At This Wedding By The Shore!

Samantha Melei

For this wedding by the shore, the bride, and groom were inspired by their home away from home and brought a little bit of beach, humor, and romance into their big day! With Summer sunset hues tied into every detail from the invitation suite created by Erin Braun Design to the floral arrangements by Ivie Joy Flowers, their day gave us all of the modern, beach vibes! Brklyn View Photography had beautiful (and fun!) photo opportunities from the gorgeous views of Bonnet Island Estate to the couple's handsome black lab as their ring bearer! Scroll on to read about all of the fun details and see the couple's emotional first look! From Brklyn View Photography...Brett and Nicole's modern beach wedding was inspired by their home away from home, the Jersey Shore. Guests were greeted upon arrival to the Shore with local goodies and essentials (taffy, custom "beach tags" and beer koozies, naturally) and a balance of humor and romance continued throughout the weekend.With hues taken from a Summer sunset, and a motif of the Barnegat lighthouse (visible from their beach house and the wedding venue!) threaded into the details, the couple celebrated a sometimes emotional (cue the first look), and sometimes outrageous (Fireball shots for the introductions, anyone?) wedding day.The couple, both veterinarians made sure to include their pets as well - JJ, Rosie and Broccoli each had their own custom illustrated stamp for the invitations.. and JJ stole the show as the ring bearer. In lieu of favors, the couple opted to donate to Positive Tails, a non-profit that works to improve animal and community welfare in New York City.When it came to the reception, the couple tapped the iconic Jersey Shore band The Nerds to whip their crowd into a frenzy (with Brett even taking the stage with them, cowbell in hand.)
