Meghan and Anthony in Ocean, NJ\\nA charming reception site sets the scene for one couple's intimate late-summer garden party.\\nOne year after getting engaged on the New Jersey shore, Meghan and Anthony wed at the English Manor, in Ocean. The bride wore a gown from David's Bridal, along with a chapel-length veil and a fresh orchid in her updo, which was styled by April Mikkelson of Yorktown Hair and Nails, in Freehold.\\nHer cobalt blue Jessica Simpson shoes provided a pop of color.\\nThe bridesmaids wore David's Bridal dresses, and both Meghan and her bridesmaids carried bouquets of cymbidium orchids—the bride's in white, her bridesmaids' in green. All floral design was by Flower Cart Florist of Old Bridge.\\nThe flower girl, a niece of the bride, wore a floral wreath in her hair.\\nThe ceremony, held in a gazebo in the manor's garden, began at 3:30 p.m.\\n\\"We were told that, for good luck, the ceremony should take place when the minute hand is moving up, not down,\\" says Meghan.\\nThe reception was held in the manor's ballroom. The centerpieces featured lush white floral arrangements of roses, hydrangeas, and stephanotis in tall candelabras.\\nMeghan and Anthony made their entrance to the reception as the song \\"I Gotta Feeling\\" by the Black Eyed Peas played. \\"Rather than stopping the song and beginning our first dance right away, we had everyone join us for the entire song,\\" says Meghan. \\"Then they cleared the floor again for Anthony and me.\\" The couple performed their first dance to \\"Then\\" by Brad Paisley. Music was provided by Unforgettable DJs.\\nMenu cards, designed by the bride and groom, were provided at each place setting and outlined the evening's offerings: filet mignon in a cabernet demi-glace, and chicken breast filled with sauteed spinach, onions, roasted peppers, and seasoned ricotta cheese, all catered by the manor.\\nLater in the evening, the newlyweds' 85 guests enjoyed wedding cake, chocolate-covered strawberries, and mini ice cream cones.\\n\\"Anthony and I loved planning the wedding together,\\" says Meghan. \\"It was amazing to see our dream become reality.\\"
