A Classic, Heirloom-Inspired Wedding in New Jersey

A couple of high school sweethearts—who have stuck it out for 13 years—host an elegant, sophisticated affair with a nautical theme, inspired by their families' weddings past.

For their November nuptials, Nicole and Brian envisioned a monochromatic color palette of white, gray and black. "We wanted the overall feel to be elegant, clean and sophisticated," the bride explains.

The bride's Lazaro gown featured a beaded bodice that hinted at the couple's cool color palette.
