Shannon and Scott Asch wedding…

June 24, 2007

Loyal readers may know Shannon Omert and Scott Asch, but know you can know them as Mr. and Mrs. Scott Asch. The happy couple was married Saturday June 23, 2007 at the bay front beach outside of the Pelican Island Community Center. Shannon and Scott are both 36 years old. The couple is now living in Toms River, but Shannon is a native of Seaside Heights. Friends and family gathered outside as it approached sunset on a simply beautiful day, with perfect conditions for an outside wedding. After the ceremony, everyone went inside for a delicious buffet dinner. The celebrations for the Shannon and Scott wedding will continue on Saturday June 30th, where they will host another party for friends who could not attend on the 23rd.

Seaside Heights: A Civil Union Las Vegas?

June 24, 2007

Many wedding ceremonies have taken place along the beach and boardwalk in Seaside Heights, and many times, Reverend Eleanor Caputo has officiated. But now that the New Jersey civil union law has gone into effect, these are being seen as well. The latest such event was the ceremony for Seaside Heights residents Barbara A. Mueller and Sherri Lautier, which happened on the afternoon of Saturday June 16, 2007. Reverend Eleanor met the couple on the boardwalk at Hiering Avenue, and friends and family surrounded the happy couple, who have been together for 14 years. (Anyone can go up to the boardwalk with their intended, a minister, and witnesses to have their ceremony like Barbara and Sherri, but anything more than that would require a special event permit and a certificate of insurance). Barbara and Sherri are not the first couple from Seaside Heights to be joined in a civil union, although they are the first believed to have had their ceremony here. Devon and Kelly Baker of Seaside Heights had their ceremony shortly after the law was enacted last February, but the ceremony was not in town. With such a high profile event, some are now wondering if Seaside Heights won’t soon be known as a “Vegas” for civil unions!
