Ballet Inspired Blush Wedding in New Jersey by George Street Photo & Video
This graceful wedding in New Jersey was inspired by the ballet and we can’t help but to gush over it! Kailey and Alexander met at the Mini Cooper dealership that Kailey was working at and described their encounter as love at first sight. They instantly started dating and then got engaged on Alexander’s birthday at the Piermont Pier. As a ballet dancer, Kailey wanted their wedding to be elegant, clean, and reflective of their own style and preferences. You can tell the ballet inspiration in many of the wedding details which came out absolutely perfect for Kailey and Alexander’s big day!
The girls got ready at the Rock Island Lake Club. The bride wore a beautiful ballerina inspired wedding dress by Bijou Bridal, while the bridesmaids wore mismatched dresses in the same blush color scheme but with some added bling! The bride told us that her mom picked out her wedding dress and as soon as she tried it on, she started to cry and knew it was the one! It was such a sweet moment among them. The bride also personalized her bouquet; she added a picture of her late grandmother and felt like her grandmother was with her the whole day.
Sweet and Elegant Wedding Ceremony
The bride walked down the aisle at a beautiful room inside the Rock Island Lake Club. The entire ceremony was custom written by the groom’s best friend (who happens to be a writer!) He was one of the first people that Alexander told about after meeting Kaylie so it felt appropriate and personal to have him write the ceremony. Kaylie and Alexander also wrote their own vows, which a super sweet and special moment!
Ballet Inspired Wedding Reception
The reception was where Kaylie and Alexander’s creative vision truly shined! Wanting an elegant, ballet-inspired, blush pink wedding, Kaylie made sure that their day came out perfect. Since her two sisters both got married within the past year, one had a shabby chic theme (think mixed milk duds and an open cake) the other had a rustic theme (with exposed wood, lanterns and burlap), Kaylie made sure that her own voice would be present within her ballet inspired theme.
The ballet inspired details can be seen throughout the wedding décor. Kaylie DIY’d the place cards and place card holders by popping out the backs of big empty frames and using ballet ribbon and mini clothespins for the place cards. Aside from the décor, Kaylie and Alexander couldn’t stop raving about the food! They had everything from Asian take out food to homemade bakery goods.
Kaylie and Alexander had an amazing time on their big day! We asked Kaylie what advice she has for future brides-to-be. She tells us, “Stick to your vision and don’t let others skew it! I had a goal and it came through!”
We hope they have a happily ever after!
