Eric and Jen's Wedding at Windows on the Water in Seabright, NJ was an unforgettable one, and one of our favorites of the year.  It was only right to close out our 2014 wedding season with this stunner!  There were so many awesome locations from their pretty apartment in Asbury Park, NJ, to the mystic lake, the funky boardwalk, the Beautiful Berkeley Hotel, and finally to the enchanted Windows on the Water.  The girls even had their jewelry made by one of our most loved ladies, Erica at Foolish Ginger! Here is their sweet story in their own words... "[We] through Match.com. We had our first date at the Office Lounge and things went from there :) I (Jen) knew that Eric bought a ring (he couldn't contain his excitement and showed me a picture of it). He kept me on my toes for awhile and so with each date, or every time he bent down to tie his shoe, I thought it was the moment he was going to propose. In fact, there was one time that felt so real that it stood out from all the rest. I came home one day to a single cupcake bakery box and Eric saying that I need to look inside the box because it will change my life and that it isn't a cupcake. I looked inside the box and it was a maple bacon sticky bun...not a cupcake. What he didn't realize is that by what he said, I assumed it was the ring. He just literally meant that it was NOT a cupcake. So a couple of days/weeks later, we went to his parent's house one night to have dinner with both sets of parents. I was venting sarcastically to both sets of parents about each false moment that I thought Eric was proposing to me. As I was venting about the cupcake incident, I didn't see that Eric had left the room to grab the ring and when I turned around, he was on his knee. He said, "this is the box that WILL change your life", and then he proposed."

Awwww!!!  Check it out and enjoy!
