Coastal Yacht Club Wedding at Crystal Point

Point Pleasant, New Jersey


What an absolutely beautiful day celebrating Alyssa and Bob! We had the most gorgeous, early October weather, and there wasn’t a cloud in the sky. These two are so incredibly sweet, and deserved nothing less than this perfect day.

Alyssa and Bob first met through work, and bonded over the fact that they both grew up so close to the beach. During their first year of work they eventually started working on the same team, and the rest is history!

Bob popped the question on October 2nd of 2021. As Alyssa tells it, “It was a normal Saturday for us… breakfast in Bay Head in the morning, and there were a few fall festivals in town that we walked through.” Bob made reservations for dinner that night at Teresa’s South in Bay Head. He parked a few blocks away, and asked Alyssa if she’d rather walk through the beach or the park. “And of course, I chose the beach! He proposed while we stood overlooking the ocean.”

Alyssa’s diamond is Bob’s late grandmother’s, making it even more special to them both! “We went to a local jeweler to decide on the type of ring I wanted, which will incorporate her stone. Her ring is beautiful — and of course has sentimental value — but we are excited to see the outcome of creating our own ring with her diamond!” The ring they designed together is absolutely stunning, and I love knowing how meaningful it is to them both.

These two made their marriage official with a stunning ceremony on the bay. Crystal Point Yacht Club was the perfect setting for Alyssa and Bob’s special day, and I couldn’t be happier for them. Congratulations again, Mr. and Mrs. Deatrick!
