David and Jeryl Bischoff Fincke were married on September 25, 2010 at the Second Avenue Beach in Cape May near the pavilion.
David and I met at work five years ago at Siemens in Glasgow, Delaware, where we both work for Technical Support.
David grew up in Cape May, but I had never been there until he introduced me to the city. And I loved it — the history, the sights, and the beautiful beaches.
My work led me to the area and we stayed in many bed and breakfasts over the years for work and for pleasure. We especially loved The Mainstay and decided to stay there for our wedding weekend, along with many of our wedding guests.
They came from all over, including California, North Dakota, New England, Florida, Delaware, and Pennsylvania. They all loved the beach and the Victorian houses.
Most stayed in the B & Bs and others stayed at Congress Hall, Periwinkle Inn, Angel of the Sea, to name a few. Many of the guests said they came for a romantic getaway.
David and I love wine tasting, and we always visit Cape May Winery. We mentioned this to all of our friends and even marked it on a map that we included with our wedding reception directions. Many of our guests went to the winery between the ceremony and the reception or sometime during the weekend.
The Merion Inn is where we had our rehearsal dinner. The food and atmosphere were fantastic! We wanted to have the Cape May charm and we thought a historical restaurant would be perfect.
I especially remember the beauty of Cape May beach. Saturday September 25 was sunny, clear, and in the mid 70s, with hardly a cloud in the sky. The light breeze was refreshing. Exchanging our vows with our feet in the white sand, the blue ocean and the lighthouse in the background was better than we imagined.
We loved getting married in Cape May!
