Jennifer and Matthew were married on the most gorgeous day of the year! Their ceremony took place right on the beach in Surf City, LBI. From the personal touches, to Jennifer’s niece officiating, I loved everything about this wedding!! It was so beautiful!!
Jennifer and Matthew are both police officers so they had their wedding rings designed with a thin blue line. They were so cool and unique! And of course Jen’s garter was blue and black and said “Police line, do not cross” with mini handcuffs on them. So cute!
Jennifer got ready with all of her closest girls at the Surf City Hotel and from the minute I walked in the door I knew we were going to have fun. Jen was the most laid back and relaxed bride ever! Her and her girls were laughing, smiling, and joking the entire morning.
Shortly after Jen slipped into her wedding gown, Matt had arrived for their first look. We set up a super romantic first look on the dunes of the beach and Matthew’s reaction to his bride had all of us choked up. It was so super sweet!
We had so much fun taking their portraits and all of their bridal party photos before we knew it it was time for the ceremony. The ceremony took place right on the beach and everyone had a front row seat. Guests kicks off their shoes and sandals and watched Jen and Matt tie the knot with their toes in the sand. Their marriage was officiated by Jen’s niece, Gia, and Gia did such an amazing job with their ceremony. It was so heartfelt and personal, she had everyone feeling the love between Matt and Jen.
After the ceremony, the guests made their way to the Surf City Hotel for some cocktails and appetizers. Surf City had some of the best food I’ve had at a wedding venue! Their cocktail shrimp was absolutely delicious and fresh and the cocktail sauce was the best I’ve ever had.
Jen specifically mentioned that they were a fun group and she was spot on! Matt and Jen’s guests were so much fun! It made the night fly by!!
Thank you Jennifer and Matthew for choosing us to capture your beautiful beach wedding!!
