An Ashford Estate Wedding {Megan + Joe}

Documented by Berit Bizjak, CPP and Barbara Wentzel (Second)

We spent an incredible day with Megan and Joe this past July.  We started our day early in Hoboken.  We met with Megan at the W Hotel and with Joe in their apartment further uptown.  Megan wore a stunning Enzoani gown with hair by Style Glam and makeup by Max from Hot Mess Studio. She was radiant as she walked down the aisle to see Joe for the first time in St. Ann’s church in Hoboken.  Immediately following the ceremony Megan and Joe strolled the waterside before heading down to The Ashford Estate to meet with friends and family to celebrate at their reception.

The grounds at The Ashford Estate are like no other.  Surrounded by hundreds of acres of preserved farmland in a secluded region of Monmouth County New Jersey, The Ashford Estate is a well-hidden treasure. The Ashford has been designed on over 30 park-like acres of sculpted property, complete with sparkling fountains, waterfalls, a floating gazebo, stone ruins, garden arbors and sprawling views. In addition to the natural beauty of its grounds, The Ashford features immaculately preserved and architecturally astonishing structures, such as the barn chapel, carriage house and the grand ballroom. The Estate offers a conservatory and a majestic oak library. Multiple sitting rooms and verandas provide extraordinary spaces between and around these magnificent gathering areas for people to converse during a spectacular cocktail hour. The photo opportunities are endless.

The reception that followed was unforgettable, with music from Hank Lane: Russ Bennett band that lasted late into the evening. It’s an honor to share some of their day. Congratulations Megan & Joe!
