I am crazy about this wedding! Every detail was simply beautiful, a perfect reflection of this equally beautiful couple :) I had been so excited about Carmella & John's wedding ever since she first reached out well over a year ago. I could tell right away they were a couple I would love to work with and after their engagement session in Point Pleasant last year I was even more excited! These two are so kind, light-hearted and incredibly sweet together. My associate and I had the pleasure of working with both families on family sessions before their big day, so we already knew them going in to it, which made the day even more special for us! They both have such wonderful families and I knew this day would be an emotional one filled with so much love! The morning started the ball rolling with lots of tears of joy and laughter while they were reading the letters and opening the gifts they had for each other. After a beautiful ceremony at my favorite church, Saint Aloysius Church, we headed over to LBI for the bridal portraits at Sunset Park. It was a bit windy by the water but that didn't stop everyone from enjoying every moment! John and Carmella's portraits there are some of my favorite ever! We also had the pleasure of working with an awesome videographer, Tim from Studio 94, who did an incredible job capturing their wedding day. Check out the video here! John and Carmella's reception was held at the The Stateroom of Long Beach Island, which is a beautiful venue and perfectly complimented their beach/nautical theme. The night started with the touching first dances and speeches which had the tears flowing again. We were even able to sneak out just in time to catch a few portraits with the stunning sunset behind them. The rest of the night was a ball and I saw some of the best dancing that I've ever seen from guests at a wedding. Even all the kids were getting in on the fun! It was just such an honor to capture this incredible wedding!

Congratulations John & Carmella!

Enjoy the photos :)
