On March 20, Chris and I had a great time in our hometown participating in the Red Bank Wedding Walk.
The First Annual Wedding Walk was created by the Red Bank RiverCenter. This one-day event was created to introduce prospective brides, grooms, wedding attendants and their families to Red Bank as a one-stop shopping destination for weddings. We of course already knew how amazing Red Bank is for a perfect wedding celebration (after all – our entire wedding weekend will celebrate the joy of living in Monmouth County). But it was great to visit with our vendors and see so many people enjoy the beauty of our town. Chris and I got excited for the entire process.
We hung out at the Oyster Point, talked wedding photography with our awesome photographer Laura Vittuci, visited with Nicole at Mustillos (where I”m getting my dress and the dresses for my moms and matron of honor – see the pear green beauty below). We also spent some time at Hamilton Jewelers looking at wedding bands and stopped in at the oh so fabulous Sassy Chic Boutique. And the day would not have been complete without a visit to Darryn Murphy Designs. Darryn, Craig and Patrice are truly gifted individuals that make any event totally 5-star!
There were approximately 30 premier businesses and sponsors participating in categories such as: Floral Design, Formalwear, Hotel/Banquet Halls, Invitations/Printing, Jewelers, Photographers, Restaurants, Salons/Spas, Shoes/Accessories, Transportation, Lingerie, Wine Purveyors and custom Framers.
Brides, grooms, friends and family registered at The Molly Pitcher in the AM. We all received a Wedding Walk Map and Tote Bag. We hit 18 locations and then went back to the Oyster Point for the grand prize drawing. We didn’t win – but we had a great day. And more importantly, it really helped us to enjoy the process. That is what I’m going to focus on in these final months leading up to the big day – having fun with it!
