Christina + Ryan had the most gorgeous Fall wedding on the water! Their wedding was at the beautiful Channel Club in Monmouth Beach. The forecast called for rain but after a little morning shower the weather cleared up and we had blue skies and an amazing sunset! I was SO excited for this wedding all year. I met Christina and Ryan through Ryan’s sister Lauren, whose family have been dear clients of mine for many years. I first met Lauren when I photographed her baby girl’s newborn session 4 years ago and it was beyond sweet to see all the kids in the wedding party as the flower girl and ring bearers! This day was just amazing. The Channel Club has the best bridal suite that was perfect for all of the details Christina had. All the girls were in the most adorable robes and Christina looked absolutely stunning in her dress from Barefoot Bride. Marissa spent the morning with the guys and got some fantastic shots of them getting ready. One of the coolest parts of the day was definitely when the boys took a boat over to the venue! Once the bride and groom were ready it was time for the first look which we were able to do it on the dock. It was just beautiful :)
As soon as we started their portrait session it reminded me of how much I LOVE photographing this couple. They are just so natural and look so darn cute together! You can see their adorable Sandy Hook Engagement session here. We had such a great time with the bridal party and family for more portraits and then it was time to get ready for the ceremony. One of my favorite parts of the day was taking the couple out to do some sunset photos on the dock. The sky had turned an orange pink color and it was breathtaking! After an awesome cocktail hour it was time for the reception and the party was on! The DJ had the music pumping ALL night and the dance floor was beyond packed. My team actually had to squeeze through people at some points to get in there haha! That’s how you know it’s a good party. They also had a smoke machine which gave it an even more epic feel. Ryan + Christina danced the night away with their family and friends and it was THE BEST! It was such an honor to be apart of their special day and I am so happy for these two.
Congratulations Christina + Ryan :)
