There are some couples that find home in each other, that sense of belonging and ease that feels so right. Dana & Patrick are one of those couples and for both of them the connection took place almost instantly. When I walked into The Asbury Hotel , a hip new venue in heart of one of the most dynamic shore towns, I was taken away by both of their radiant smiles and genuine warmth. Dana was stunning in a Jovani silk sheath dress from Mustillo's Bridal in Red Bank and gem drenched Badgley Mischka heals. Michele Falco of Bridal By Michele styled Dana in a classic old Hollywood updo accented with an ornate hair clip and a great red lip. Patrick happened to have the perfect connection in his friend Darryn of Darryn Murphy Designs who helped plan the big day and created lush floral arrangements with purple, cream and burnt orange accents. As Patrick is a beloved baseball coach a few game day touches were sprinkled in the design. It was a day of warmth, beauty and love!Read More
I had such a lovely time photographing Joan & Kevin for a family portrait that I was thrilled when they told me they wanted me to capture their July 3rd wedding! It was simple & elegant and filled with such joy! Kevin wore a dashing seersucker suit, one of my favorite looks for men at a shore weddding. Joan look radiant in a delicate gown with petal overlays and classic pearls. It was wonderful to capture Joan's expressions during the ceremony. One of my favorite caterers Mumfords was on hand for the backyard reception. It was such fun!!
We had just way to much fun photographing this bubbly family! The lighting and the colors on the Asbury Boardwalk could not have been more perfect. We couldn't wait to share! Enjoy!
