Real Weddings: A Great Gatsby Inspired Wedding in Cape May Courthouse Part Two

“I love her and that’s the beginning and end of everything.”

— F. Scott Fitzgerald

Kevin & Veronica’s wedding was quite the homage to the Roaring 20’s.  Their wedding was clearly inspired by The Great Gatsby with décor like a majestic ice sculpture, a classic black, gold, and ivory color palette, and larger-than-life floral installations.

Real Weddings: A Great Gatsby Inspired Wedding in Cape May Courthouse, New Jersey

“He looked at her the way all women want to be looked at by a man.”
― F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby

There’s something so romantic about the Gatsby era. The Roaring 20’s were known for glamour-gold and glitz were everywhere. Black and gold Art Deco patterns were everywhere. And, of course, champagne and alcohol were a huge focus for the flappers.

Kevin & Veronica’s Gatsby inspired wedding is everything. The vintage touches were everywhere.

Jacqui and Jeff’s “how they met” love story was a central focus of their wedding. The two met while attending the University of Delaware in Newark and their alma mater featured prominently on their wedding day.
