We always love photographing weddings at Asbury Park no matter no many times we return to this part of the NJ shore. It is a very dynamic area with an incredibly active local arts scene and forever changing painted wall art covering the old casino and other buildings along the boardwalk. The multitudes of interesting musicians, artists, and magicians line the boardwalk to perform once you have your fill of the sand and ocean.
Both NYC natives, a chance meeting years ago on a bench along on this very boardwalk eventually led to this wedding day. A beautiful sunset over the town behind the beach gave a warm glow to a very touching and intimate ceremony. After the vows, there was not a dry eye for all in attendance.
After the marriage was made official, we walked with the couple down the boardwalk towards the reception at The Berkeley Hotel capturing some portraits along the way that to really embodied the Asbury vibe and culture and even finding the bench on which the couple met years ago.
Entrances, first dances, and toasts all flew by as the party continued throughout the night primarily set to surprising crowd favorite of classic and modern hip hop. We wish Wendy and Martin the best going forwards in their new married life!
