This elegant nautical themed wedding comes to us from Thèrése Marie Wagner Photography, based in New York, NY! Here’s Thèrése to tell us more:

For Erin and Vito it truly was love at first sight! They first caught a glance of each other at a CBA swim meet where Erin was cheering on her younger brother and Vito was his coach. Vito’s breath was taken away by the gorgeous blonde and she couldn’t stop thinking of the handsome coach!

See more after the cut!

A whirlwind summer romance found this couple madly in love and two years later Vito found the most romantic way to pop the question! With their fun summers at the shore as inspiration Vito scoured every antique store for the perfect vintage bottle, a true romantic he wrote a sweet note with the big question and lovingly antiqued it to match the bottle. With friends and family he set out to make the dream proposal.

On the bridge in Spring Lake, NJ he placed the bottle for Erin to find as they took a romantic stroll before dinner. As the sun started to set she found the bottle and started to read the note, Vito got on one knee and proposed! For the big day they kept the shore vibe and decided they would be tying the knot with a nautical theme’s at Rumson Country Club’s Riverhouse. We couldn’t think of a better way!

Congratulations Erin & Vito and thank you, Thèrése, for sharing! For more information about Thèrése Marie Wagner Photography, please visit her WeddingLovley Vendor Guide profile.
