Details of the day: We knew that we wanted to do something different and loved the idea of having a beach wedding. Long Beach Island is our favorite place in the world; we adore the small town vibe and laid-back beach lifestyle. For us, it only made sense to celebrate the happiest day of our lives with everyone we love in the place we love the most! Our wedding ceremony took place on 9th street beach, while the reception was held at The Stateroom in Ship Bottom, NJ.
Your favorite part: It’s so hard to choose my favorite part of the day because the entire day was beautiful! I think my favorite part was during our beach ceremony when Reverend Brian finally announced us a husband and wife.
Advice for other brides: Choose a photographer not only by their images, but on their personality as well. They are there to experience the most intimate parts of your wedding day with you so having someone that you’re comfortable with is essential. The package that Kyle and I chose from our photographer included an engagement session. We were so happy with how the pictures came out that we decided to use them for our save the dates. I honestly cannot say enough good things about our photographers.
Leaha and Jeff of Popography have the best personalities and they made us feel so comfortable, which was incredibly important to us. The engagement session is great for getting to know your photographer before your wedding day, so I would definitely recommend it. You get to know them on a completely different level when they are doing your session rather than just meeting to discuss business and them showing up on your wedding day. By the time our wedding day came, we considered Leaha and Jeff our friends, and could not wait for them to arrive.
