Bright colors illuminate the day at this Jersey shore celebration

Inspired by a shared love of the ocean, Laura and Philip staged a fun-filled wedding by the sea. Beachy trinkets such as flip-flips and cocktail parasols in vibrant hues added to the couple's "tropical paradise" theme.

Laura and Philip danced for the first time as newlyweds to "Hanging By a Moment," by Lifehouse. Later, guests packed the dance floor as DJ Chris Mathews played a mix of classic rock, pop and old-school hip-hop. After the reception, guests gathered on the beach for a bonfire.
