Last September, I photographed Jaclyn and Tom’s Martell’s Waters Edge wedding in Bayville, New Jersey. Jaclyn and Tom met through mutual friends at Rowan University and have been together for over seven years. After a couple of weeks of hanging out together with their friends, they finally went on their first date. On their first date, Tom took Jaclyn to a German restaurant in Philly that they still go back to from time to time on their anniversary or Valentines Day. It was such a random place to go but it was definitely memorable!
From Jaclyn: “I knew he was the one because we never wanted to spend a minute apart when we met; he became my best friend very quickly. We also persevered through a lot of life changes in our 7 years together: graduation, living long-distance, moving in together, rescuing and raising our two dogs together, and some career changes. From the time we got to know each other on a deeper level, I couldn’t picture my life without him!”
Jaclyn and Tom were engaged in August of 2016 while kayaking in Treasure Island at Riverfront Park in Point Pleasant, Tom is so sweet that he even woke up earlier that morning to dig “Say Yes?” into the sand! Jaclyn had a feeling he would propose soon, but this was a complete surprise! I was fortunate enough to do their engagement session and get to know them last December in Asbury Park.
These two are also avid Jeopardy watchers, they love to hike, kayak and camp. According to Jaclyn, they’re beach people, so they love living in Point Pleasant, where they can walk to the beach together, listen to island music, read, and relax together. Jaclyn and Tom had a New Zealand honeymoon planned for the December following their wedding, I am sure this adventurous couple had a blast there!
Thank you to Jaclyn and Tom for allowing me to capture your gorgeous Martell’s Waters Edge wedding!
