Long Beach New York, with its long white sands & ocean breezes is a natural place to have a gorgeous classic beach wedding. Factor in that both the bride & groom hail from Long Beach, and its easy to see why Jaclyn Spahr & David Weiss opted for such a deliciously lovely beach spot to say ‘I Do’! David, along with his groomsmen & father headed to the beach early in the morning to erect the bamboo chuppah by hand, as well as have a bit of fun while doing so of course! After a bit of hard labor, the boys retreated to get ready, dressing in navy with pops of yellow in each piece of their accessories, even on their shoes! Jaclyn donned a gorgeous form fitting lace gown with a beautiful open back from Bridal Reflections while her bridesmaids wore a mix of deep navy blue bridesmaid dresses. Punctuating all the navy were vibrant yellows, the perfect accent for such a lovely beach affair! To cap it all off, each wonderful moment was captured by New York wedding photographer Martina Micko Photo, ensuring this beach classic would be one for the memory books![sbwgallery]
Novella of the Bride…
Wedding Buzzwords ~ Beach, Whimsical, Fun, & Festive
We are both from Long Beach, NY and have been together for over 5 years. We have always known of each other but never actually started dating until one summer and have been together ever since. We both love the beach and try to spend as much time there as we can, whether just taking walks on the boardwalk, riding our bikes or spending the weekend at the beach with friends.
The theme of our wedding was definitely beach! Our guest table had shells and beach details. Our tables at our reception each had a unique quote, which I created. A lot of the details were personal and made our wedding so much more special. The huppa, under which we had our ceremony was built by Dave and his brother, dad and groomsmen before the ceremony. They woke up early and started building the huppa from scratch, as well as setting up chairs and details. My bridesmaids helped prep as the day approached with details for the wedding and last minute things. I absolutely loved how everything came together.
Bride’s Favorite Moment: “Being surrounded by people we love and who love is in return to share our special day is so meaningful. The ceremony is definitely something I will never forget.
