A little over a week ago, I photographed Stephanie and Matt’s Windows On the Water at Surfrider Beach Club wedding in Sea Bright, NJ. My couple, who also happen to be high school sweethearts had a classic Jersey Shore wedding with a color palette of light pink and tan. Their day was filled with a chance of rain, but my laid back beach loving couple were lucky and we were able to do all their portraits in the sand, they had a gorgeous beach ceremony and a lively reception!
Stephanie and Matt met through their siblings who were best friends growing up. Their first date was at Sawa Hibachi, Stephanie’s favorite food back in April of 2014. One of the things Stephanie loves most about Matt is that he knows how to calm her down and make her laugh even when she’s in a bad mood.
Engaged on 11/28/2019, the proposal from Stephanie: “He proposed to me on Thanksgiving at my parents house with my entire family being present. He knew I always wanted my family to be there”
Stephanie and Matt’s Windows On the Water at Surfrider Beach Club wedding had a threat of rain all week, it even rained as we drove to the venue for the first look, but right as my excited couple go to see one another for the first time, the rain stopped and we were able to get all their portraits in the sand! They had to make a last minute decision to keep their ceremony on the beach and I am so glad they did as it was perfect! Their officiant was wonderful, he kept their guests laughing and it was sweetest personal ceremony. Stephanie and Matt were most looking forward to celebrating with all their family and closest friends and their dance floor was lively!
Now that Stephanie and Matt are married, their dream is to have children and grow a family together. They also hope to travel to Europe and other parts of the world. Stephanie’s advice for current couples planning their wedding is to not stress the small stuff. My happy couple is currently on a Jamaican honeymoon! Thank you to Stephanie and Matt for having me photograph your classic Jersey Shore wedding at Windows On the Water at Surfrider Beach Club!
