Wife to my soulmate, mom to my sweet baby boy, believer in love and happily ever afters. You can usually find me frequenting the aisles of Home-Goods, obsessing over the latest Restoration Hardware magazine, searching for my next glass of sweet tea or indulging in some really bad reality TV (don't judge me)
The couples, wedding parties, and families I am so fortunate to photograph at each wedding I capture are the heartbeat of what makes this job so joyful. And, today I am thrilled to introduce you to Angela + Brian! Angela is outgoing and bohemian, Brian is reserved and classic, and they planned a wedding that was so uniquely them at The Oyster Point Hotel along the Navesink River in Red Bank, New Jersey.
A+B’s day started while they both spent time getting ready separately with their bridesmaids and groomsmen. I always love capturing these moments because there is so much anticipation in the air about all of the fun to come, and I think Angela popping a champagne bottle and laughing with her bridesmaids is a perfect example!
Angela walked down the aisle toward Brian during their ceremony at St James Catholic Church. I loved the beautiful mismatched dusty blue and floral bridesmaids dresses the girls wore, and I am seriously obsessed with Angela’s gown! At the end of their traditional Catholic mass, Angela and Brian could not have been more thrilled to be officially announced as husband and wife. Post vows, A+B rejoined their guests at The Oyster Point Hotel for their reception, which was filled with gorgeous neutrals, rustic details (their wooden hand lettered seating chart was a favorite!), heartfelt speeches, and plenty of time on the dance floor.
Their wedding was almost a decade in the making, and I loved how these two embraced their day, including the rain which never dampened Angela and Brian’s joy. I will always think of this pair as two of the coolest and calmest people I’ve ever met, and it’s safe to say I did not want their wedding to come to a close. I cannot wait to see what A+B do next in their marriage together!
