November 4, 2022

This June wedding at New Jersey wedding venue, Crossed Keys Estate, was the perfect combination of modern and romantic with details that were absolutely timeless. This modern romance wedding inspiration is sure to be added to your Pinterest board!

Melanie and her bridesmaids spent the morning in the Crossed Keys Estate Playhouse getting ready while Antonio and the groomsmen enjoyed the grounds. The couple and loved ones gathered at a nearby church, St. Mary’s, for a beautiful ceremony. Crossed Keys Designs lended their talents by adding romantic florals to the aisles and beautiful arrangements on the altar. After the newlyweds exchanged their vows, it was time to celebrate back at Crossed Keys Estate!

For this celebration, the Farmhouse was filled with modern and romantic details using light and airy neutral tones. The reception space was lined with long, clean tables which were set with vintage glassware, candles and blush toned menus. Custom-designed dried floral arrangements hung from the chandeliers. But the showstopper of the day was the free-floating floral piece hanging over their sweetheart table and neon sign featuring their new last name! The reception truly was the couple’s vision and the moment where they saw it come together before the guests entered was so special.

Melanie + Antonio wanted their guests to have an incredible experience so we focused on little details that were sure to be a hit. An extended cocktail hour was planned with elevated menu items like lobster rolls, lamb chops, a lecon station, and a smoked seafood + raw bar. Our rental furniture made for an elegant corner for relaxing and even a great photo op. Also, a cigar roller and whiskey station ended the evening with a bang!

Speaking for the whole team at Crossed Keys Estate, it was a pleasure to have worked with both Melanie + Antonio to plan, host and execute their pinterest-worthy modern romance wedding! Thank you to Vince Ha Photography for capturing the grounds and this couple in the most gorgeous way!
