We are a wife and husband operation.  Actually the name “Knot by the Sea” came from our planned wedding in the caribbean which ended taking place back home in New Jersey for unforeseen circumstances.  We fell in love with the process, and 7 years later we have married over 400 couples from 17 different countries.  We love what we do and we can only hope you chose us to be part of your wedding day.
