July 30th: Stacy and Jay

Life is short, love is sweet And this wedding was SWEET! The details alone made this wedding so much fun. Coming down the driveway lined with 100 year old trees, guests were greeted by a 27 ft “Love is Sweet” sign to get them in the wedding spirit. During the cocktail hour, guests loved mixing their own “Love is Sweet” drink made with lemonade and sweet tea vodka in country mason jars. Lots of dancing and good food created the perfect reception! By dessert time, the guests were sure to know that love really is sweet! A candy bar was set up for treats that doubled as favors. We rolled out an ice cream cart full of Good Humor bars with a signature yellow and white striped umbrella for Stacy’s yellow and green color scheme. Just when you thought there couldn’t be more, we brought out strawberries n’ cream whoopie pies that were to die for! I can only hope that this slideshow can show you all the fun and love that surrounded this wedding! Note: All the exclamation points are a nod to how much I loved this wedding! Stacy and her mom worked tirelessly with our team to make this day picture perfect. We love you...

Best. E-mail. EVER!

Received an email from a bride-to-be recently that made my entire day. Emails like this are why we do what we do. Thank you anonymous bride-to-be! “Even though we have only been engaged a little over one week the infamous “so when are you two getting married?” question has been on everyones lips.  Sunday night, feeling overwhelmed and uninspired by typical, New Jersey banquet halls, I typed “hidden gems of NJ” into google.  Crossed Keys was the first link I clicked on.  They say when you find your wedding dress you’ll cry, well as soon as i saw your location I got choked up.  My fiance said to me “This is the first time in a week that I’m not overwhelmed by the thought of planning the wedding.”   We’ve stayed up late the past two nights, giddy and excited about the possibility of having a wedding that really represents us and a place we feel good about. To say were obsessed is an...

June 25th: Kristyn & Patrick

Until the very last dance, this wedding was a blast. Not only did Kristyn and Patrick look fantastic – they were also dancing up a storm! Kristyn wanted a romantic look and feel for her wedding wich was provided by softly lit paper lanterns, her satin ivory dress with gorgeous lace details, and birch wood boxes filled with beautiful pink roses, lavender larkspur, and fluffy white stock and hydrangea. Mix all of this romance with the fun and tradition of bagpipes, kilts, and even a groomsmen singing “My Prerogative” and you know you are in for an epic night. Congratulations Kristyn & Patrick! It was such a pleasure to see everyone having such a great time on your special...

June 18th: Gina & Brad

Love sweet love is right! Gina and Brad were such a sweet couple, and it shows in their adorable photos. A colorful and lively reception reflected all the love and excitement of the day. Peaches, purples, and pinks were present in the floral designs housed in milk glass and colored glass vases. Gina and Crossed Keys Inn owner Katherine went all over looking for milk glass and the result was stunning! Paper lanterns in theme colors, pewter bridesmaids dresses with hot pink shoes and bouquets, and Gina’s bouquet of beautiful pink peonies all created a look that added to the energetic ambiance. The bride was dancing all night long, surrounded by longtime friends, proud family, and her loving...
