Sarah and Michael’s Spring Lake Bath and Tennis Club Wedding
Documented by Berit Bizjak (Principle) and Barbara Wentzel (Second)
Sarah and Michael met while working together and became friends, but lived in different cities. Michael was in Atlanta and Sarah was in Hoboken, NJ. For their first date, Michael flew from Atlanta to take her out to dinner! “It was crazy looking back but at the time I felt like I already knew him so well.”, said Sarah. And so their story began…
When planning their wedding they wanted to be able to celebrate with their closest friends and family and to keep the event simple. Their hope was to be able to talk to everyone in attendance and so they planned for a day that would be small and intimate. When asked how they chose the Spring Lake Bath and Tennis Club, Sarha said, “I wanted to have the ceremony be in my home parish where I grew up. Since the beach is a short drive away, and where I spent my summers as a child, it seemed like Spring Lake was the perfect place for our reception! We wanted our guests to relax and enjoy the beauty of their surroundings, and the Bath & Tennis club was the perfect fit since it is simple and classic.”
We met up with Sarah and her bridesmaids as they helped her step into her classic Rivini gown, before heading to the church by trolley. Sarah and Michael opted to not see each other prior to the wedding. Escorted down the aisle by her father, Sarah and Michael exchanged vows as their loved ones watched over them. Immediately following a beautiful procession filled with bubbles and congratulations, the newlyweds took some time for themselves and had a private moment in which they walked the grounds of a park in Spring Lake and began life as Mr. and Mrs. Shortly thereafter, they joined their guests for a night of amazing food, great music and non-stop dancing. It was an honor being there to photograph such a meaningful day this amazing couple! Congratulations Sara and Michael!
