Abby & Jeff’s Dreamy Pastel Jewish Wedding

Abby and Jeff had the most beautiful Jewish lakeside ceremony followed by a unique reception in the Lakeview Event Center filled with dreamy florals and sweet pastels.  

The couple originally met in August 2013 and started dating a few months later. After college, they settled in New Jersey, and Jeff popped the question in 2020 with the beautiful view of NYC’s cityscape behind them. 

For their big day, Abby wore a beautiful Alexandra Grecco column gown with a wide scoop neckline and sweep train. Her best gals each wore a different dress in varying styles and pastel colors— a trend we are totally in love with! Each gown seamlessly tied into the sweet pastels of the bridal bouquet, while Jeff and his groomsmen looked dapper in navy blue Enzo Custom suits with coordinating pink pastel ties.

Their Jewish wedding ceremony on our Lakeside Lawn was set with an elegant traditional chuppah decorated in greenery, white florals, and rust-colored fall foliage, while the aisles were lined with an abundance of flower arrangements to match. After the “I dos,” the guests moved up to our Lakeview Event Center for a unique and modern reception. 

The patio setup had us swooning! One of the large sliding glass doors was left open for a relaxed indoor-outdoor vibe. There were beautiful seating areas created with modern gray and leather lounge furniture, brass tables, and wooden high-top tables, all decorated with sweet flower arrangements— a perfect setup for guests to mingle and enjoy the reception. Their welcome sign, which was printed on white linen, looked timeless and was surrounded by the dreamiest floral installment full of blooming roses and pops of fall foliage.

Forgoing a traditional seated reception, Abby and Jeff filled our Lakeview Event Center with more casual groupings of lounge seating, farmhouse tables, and cocktails tables, all set with neutral linens and pops of pastel colors in the floral centerpieces. A round white bar was set up in the middle of the room with string lights wrapped in greenery hanging above. 

The couple shared a night of dancing and, of course, no Jewish wedding is complete without the Hora! Mozel tov! Make sure to keep scrolling to see all the details.
