Last May, we teamed up with Britt, of Everlemon Events, to put together this epic and intimate outdoor styled pop-up wedding in Brigantine, NJ! If you haven't noticed by now, we LOVE working with Britt and feel that when we work together we are the perfect dynamic duo of wedding planner and photographer!
Our vision behind this intimate pop-up wedding was to show couples how easy it is create a beautiful and unique wedding right on the beaches of New Jersey! Wondering how you can create something like this yourself?
The first thing to keep in mind is that a wedding planner is usually a MUST for this type of wedding. Oftentimes, the location is off-the-beaten-path and getting all of your rentals, furniture, lighting, food, decor, etc, can be quite tricky if you don't have a thought out plan. In our case, we transported all the things mentioned above, plus guests using all-terrain vehicles that could handle driving through the sand at the cove.
Planning how all this will happen day of can get really stressful, so we would totally recommend having a wedding planner take over this job for you! We HIGHLY suggest you check out Everlemon Events if you are thinking of having a wedding similar to this. Britt specializes in outdoor events and is based out of the Atlantic City area, so she's the perfect planner to take on a beach-side wedding like this! Plus, she will think about details that you might overlook, like how to keep the cake cold on a really humid day or she'll know that you'll need a generator to power those string-lights you have hanging over the tables!
Some other super cool places you could have an intimate pop-up beach wedding in New Jersey are Cape May, Island Beach State Park, and Sandy Hook! There are always more options, but those are a few of my personal faves! One more great thing about having a pop-up wedding in locations such as these is that all you have to do get a permit to host your wedding there! Super easy!!
