Alyssa & Ed: A Playful Beach Wedding in New Jersey

Ed and Alyssa Leach met when they were just 13 years old at the movie theater in the small town where they grew up. Although they instantly became the best of friends, it wasn’t until they were freshman in college that their relationship took a turn for the romantic.
“I began to get butterflies every time I was around Ed,” Alyssa remembered. “Since he’s an avid gym-goer, I started asking him to help me with my workout routine, even though I had very little interest in working out. My plan definitely succeeded, because he asked me out on a date shortly after.”
Five years later, Ed popped the question on a swath of white-sand beach in Cape May, New Jersey.
Fittingly, the couple chose to hold their September nuptials near the water in Ocean County, where they spend their summers and where they have made many good memories together. An enjoyable, laid-back event was all that they could envision.
“As we were planning our wedding, the word fun kept coming to mind,” Alyssa said. “We wanted the day to be anything but stuffy and elegant. The most important thing was that everyone have a blast.”
Judging from the photos, snapped by OffBeet Productions, they got just what they were looking for.
