Black & White Stripes at Maritime Parc

Maritime Parc Wedding CLY by Matthew

Wedding style is all in the details. For Jennifer and Dan’s romantic day at New Jersey’s Maritime Parc, striking black and white striped ribbons accented lush, white and cream wedding flowers. Crisp stripes against soft florals set this celebration apart. Gorgeous bride Jennifer shared her love story and decor inspiration with us.

These days, love often begins with online dating, but for this couple, business networking turned into a modern meet-cute. “The story of how we met is pretty unique,” Jennifer told us.  “I had just graduated business school and was spending a lot of time online looking for a job. I came across Dan on Linkedin in the ‘People You May Know’ section. We had a few mutual friends in the media world. He saw I looked at his profile and started emailing me. The emails turned into a first date, and the rest is history!”

We can tell these two were meant to be –  just look at that post-vow joy! Jennifer’s elegant, loosely-rounded bridal bouquet featured garden roses and ranunculus, tied with striped ribbon, leaving stems exposed at the ends for a fresh, natural look.

We asked Jennifer about her initial wedding flower and decor inspirations. “Our vision was really inspired by our venue,” she said. “Maritime Parc is a sleek modern space with beautiful views of downtown Manhattan. It is truly a blank canvas, so it was the perfect backdrop for the modern-glam color palette of black, white and gold. We loved the look of lots of candles and vases of single blooms at various heights. This worked well with the venue, since we didn’t want our centerpieces to be too tall and obstruct the beautiful views of the New York City skyline!”

Jennifer and David said their vows under a whimsical, manzantia-branch chuppah adorned with cream hydrangea, white Tibet roses, cream Vendela roses, white stock, seeded eucalyptus and olive branches.

“There were so many special moments from our wedding day that I will never forget!” Jennifer said. “Getting ready with my bridesmaids and mom in an amazing bridal suite overlooking the Hudson! Watching Dan squirm as he waited to turn around for our first look….and then the look on his face when he finally saw me! The moment during the ceremony when the Rabbi had us turn around and look at all of our friends and family in the audience! And the toast my dad gave during the reception, which had everyone crying!”
