After corresponding with our friends at Eastern European Photography, we at Hotels Unlimited had to share some of these wonderful pictures of this couple who was married at the Atlantis Ballroom located inside of the Holiday Inn of Toms River. This Central NJ wedding banquet hall had a taste of an edgier style bride that chose a black, white, and red color palette. Featuring the beautiful courtyards at Monmouth University, and the reception at the Atlantis Ballroom this NJ wedding couple dares to push the envelope that much further with these fun and bold wedding photos.
In a down economy, it is no surprise that people are turning to new alternatives to subdue the cost of their Central NJ wedding. After all, with all the components to a wedding the average cost is around $40,000 in New Jersey. This is why many wedding experts have projected 2012 to be yet another popular year for do-it-yourself projects (see our post for hot 2012 wedding trends.)
According to a new article featured in the New York Times, this trend is only going to increase as 2012 progresses. People are now looking into making their own wedding ring as both a sentimental symbol of their love and a unique mark of this major lifetime milestone. Although making a wedding ring isn’t a walk in the park, some welding shops such as The Wedding Ring Experience will guide couples along their journey to make their own personalized wedding rings using gold or platinum. Some couples can bring their own precious metals and materials or the shop can purchase the raw materials needed at the current exchange rate.
This can also make an excellent idea for a NJ engagement ring, because what woman wouldn’t want a custom piece to call her own?
According to mycentraljersey.com, New Jersey legislation has passed a bill allowing for couples to marry without a three day waiting period. Legislators say that this will allow for couples vacationing in Atlantic City to experience the same kind of convenience as those who travel to Las Vegas. New Jersey is the only state in the Northeast region to offer an immediate marriage as PA, NY, DE, and MD all have a waiting period. Otherwise couples will have to travel to Connecticut and Rhode Island for a same day marriage license.
So what does this mean for New Jersey couples? Couples looking to be married will now be paying a higher license fee at $60 instead of $28. Also, traveling couples do not need to make advanced travel plans to apply for the license. Legislators are hoping that the bill will attract more couples into the state as well as attract further revenue for towns and municipalities. Legislation has also instated a 30 day annulment period after the ceremony should anyone decide to pull a Britney Spears Vegas wedding…. hopefully this is not a frequent occurrence.

Ok ladies let us be real here. When it comes down to your NJ wedding just about every girl wants to walk down the aisle looking like a glamorous princess from the top of the sparkling veil that sits on bride’s head to the last inch of satin fabric covering the pinky toe. As we all know as females, beauty does not come without its price whether through monetary expense or physical pain. But how much pain should a bride endure on her special day to look like a princess?
Recently released by Parisian designer, Vouelle has showcased their bridal sneakers during Paris Fashion Week. Not to say that we are against being comfortable in all, but do it with some class. There are some more classic looking shoes available on the market that can do the job with flair.
One of the most interesting and fun ways to make your shoes unique is to consider color. If you are looking for that “something blue,” shoes could be the fun element to include with it. This is also an especially helpful option to consider if you have a dress that is off-white or ivory.
Of course everyone has their own personal tastes and makes their style unique. Here we have some photos of what some of our brides have worn on their feet while dancing the night away at our central NJ wedding reception halls.
