McLoone's Pier House Wedding | NJ Wedding Photography | Caroline + Phil

Long Branch NJ Wedding Photography


I don't even know where to begin with this wedding! To say I loved everything about it is an understatement! First of all, Caroline & Phil are just incredible people. They are the kind of people who you instantly feel comfortable with and I felt like I had known them for years! Thunderstorms were expected for their wedding day all week in the forecast but that changed the day before to partly cloudy and we were so excited! The morning was filled with joy and laughter as Caroline & Phil got ready with their closest friends and family. The ceremony was so beautiful and we were able to do all of the family photos right outside infront of the beautiful red doors of the church. As soon as we got into our car to head over to the reception at McLoone's Pier House it started pouring down rain! Caroline and Phil wanted to get photos on the beach but were hoping the beach wouldn't be too crowded and that is exactly what happened thanks to the rain storm! Once the rain let up I rushed to get them outside for some photos as a beautiful rainbow had appeared in the sky! It disappeared quickly but we did manage to get a few of them with the faint rainbow in the background :)
Being on the beach with the bridal party was so much fun! I think we laughed the entire time we were out there! After some beautiful portraits of the newlyweds we went inside to get ready for the party, and boy did these people know how to party! The entrances of the bridal party and bride and groom were some of the best I've ever seen. When the bride and groom shared their first dance the whole bridal party had their arms around one another swaying and singing, it was literally the cutest thing ever! All of the first dances had be tearing up. They were all so sweet! After the fantastic toasts the couple went straight into their cake cutting so that they could spend the rest of the night partying it up, uninterrupted! As you will see from the photos the dance floor was overflowing! Guests danced ALL night long. It was such a BLAST! I actually wanted to stay just to dance with them. Aside from this day just being incredible, it was such an honor to work with such wonderful, sweet people. 

Caroline & Phil, I am so happy for you guys and thank you SO much for choosing me and my team to capture your wedding day!

Enjoy the photos :)
