A Beach Wedding at Ocean Place

Kristin first heard about us from her friend Nicole, who was one of our fabulous brides last year. When Nicole heard Kristin was getting married, she showed off the pictures we took of her wedding and told her “you have to have them!” The amazing thing was that Kristin was getting married exactly one year later, at exactly the same place! Not only that, but after Kristin saw Nicole’s pictures in the ocean in her wedding gown, she decided she wanted to get in the ocean, too!

Well, we are SO happy Kristin called, because her wedding was amazing. She had a gorgeous beach ceremony at the Ocean Place Resort in Long Branch, NJ. It was a perfect day, and we could not have enjoyed it more. I mean, how can you not love it when you can photograph while barefoot? — Anyone who has seen me work knows how often I lose my shoes. Even Bryan took advantage of the sand, digging his feet in so he could be closer in height to his bride during the ceremony. 🙂 Everything centered around the beach, with a starfish theme for the wedding, the guys in seersucker tan & white suits, and the girls in pink dresses. After the ceremony, all went indoors for the reception, where flip-flops were available for everyone. Kristin and Bryan danced the night away with their many friends and family.

As great as the wedding was, though, the next morning was even better. Kristin and Bryan had us stay for one of our Morning After sessions on the beach. Kristin put her gown back on, and Bryan wore his suit & tie, and we enjoyed yet another perfect day with clear blue skies. With the wedding day behind them, Kristin and Bryan were able to just be themselves and enjoy each other completely. They had so much fun, we literally had to tell them to stop smiling! At the end, we all wound up soaked in the ocean. All I can say is … the pictures are incredible. Kristin and Bryan, thank you so much for your total confidence in us, for doing absolutely anything we asked of you (no, you weren’t being punished for anything), and for even inviting us to your family brunch. It was an absolute privilege to spend the weekend with you and your wonderful families.

Kristin and Bryan’s full proof gallery will be available shortly at our main website. Until then, enjoy these teaser images (click to see larger versions). And feel free to post your thoughts about their day by clicking on the “Comments” link below.
