We met the couple on a beautiful summer day for a wedding on the ever popular Long Beach Island on the New Jersey Shore which just the right mix of sun and clouds. We arrived to find them surrounded by family and friends while preparing for the wedding day before a ocean side first look on a beach in Ship Bottom, NJ. A combination of a touching and funny note from the groom set the mood groom set the mood as we captured the bride putting on all of the finishing touches. After the first look, bridal party photos, and couples portraits on a beautiful beach we traveled to The State Room for a brief ceremony before jumping right into the party. The shore themed colors and decorations perfectly embodied the location with an amazing cake covered with incredibly realistic yet still edible shells.
