On October 23rd, I photographed Allison and Jeremy’s classic Jersey Shore Wedding at The Windrift Hotel in Avalon, NJ. Like so many of my 2021 couples, Allison and Jeremy rescheduled their October 2020 wedding from 10/24/20 to 10/23/21 and the extra year long wait was worth it – not only did these two have perfect beach conditions for their day, but the dolphins were just as excited to see them finally say “I do”, they jumped in the surf all day! Their highly personal ceremony even ended up with an airplane fly over that had a banner that said “It finally happened”!
Allison and Jeremy first met when she moved back to New Jersey from San Diego in their eighth grade science class. She had moved back to the same town she grew up in, so she already knew half of the students from elementary school. A classmate was introducing her to all of the students that she did not know, and Jeremy happened to be in the same lab group. Just a few years later, in their Sophomore year of high school, they officially began dating. On their first date in 2009, they went to their hometown diner. They were so young that they had to walk there after school and after lunch, Allison’s mom picked them up and that is when Jeremy met his entire future family for the first time!
Engaged on 07/27/2019, the proposal from Allison: “After a long day at the beach with my family, Jeremy convinced me that we were going out to dinner with his mom and some of her colleagues. Before we were going to meet them all in Asbury Park, he asked me if I wanted to go for a walk along the beach, this should have been a sign. Once we got to Second Avenue in Belmar we walked along the water chatting when he grabbed my hand and got down on one knee. After 10 years, I obviously said YES!” And back in November of 2019, I photographed their engagement session .
Their advice to couple’s currently planning their weddings are to have fun with it! They say not to let anyone else’s vision of your wedding change your big day or stress you out. This is an exciting time in your life – don’t let any outside factors ruin it. The intention is you are marrying the person of your dreams and nothing should eclipse that!
Allison was most excited about marrying the man of her dreams and celebrating with their friends and family! Thank you to Allison and Jeremy for choosing me to photograph your beautiful Wedding at The Windrift, I hope you two enjoyed your honeymoon in Belize!
