Windrift Hotel Resort | Jersey Shore Wedding | Maria & Rich

Last weekend, I photographed Maria and Rich’s Windrift Hotel wedding in Avalon, NJ. My beer loving couple had a gray and blue color palette for their Jersey Shore wedding and the big smiles never left the faces of my glowing couple. I am so excited to share this happy Windrift wedding!

Windrift Hotel Resort | Jersey Shore Wedding | Maria & Rich

When I arrived at the Windrift last weekend for Maria and Rich’s wedding, it felt like we had this entire Jersey Shore wedding venue to ourselves! I was blown away with how empty the beach was and even though it was a cold day, the sun was shining and it helped keep us warm. On arrival, I immediately starting photographing all of Maria’s beautiful details, their gray and blue color palette was the perfect color combination for their beach wedding and I loved Maria’s diamond and sapphire engagement ring and wedding band! Her flowers were stunning and were a beautiful mix of white blooms filled with garden and spray roses.

Once both my bride and groom were dressed, it was time for their first look on the beach. We had beautiful November light for their portrait session and my adventurous and beer loving couple even took a quick break to have a beer at the Avalon Brew Pub before continuing with the photo session!

Their intimate Windrift Hotel ceremony was inside, officiated by Maria’s brother. Their highly personal ceremony even included a unity ceremony where they each poured their favorite beer into a stein and they each took a sip before sealing their marriage with a kiss!

Their Windrift reception was filled with sweet dances, hilarious speeches and a lively dance floor! I am so excited to share this happy and joyful Windirft Hotel wedding!

Thank you to Maria and Rich for allowing me to capture your Windrift Hotel wedding, I hope you two are enjoying your honeymoon in Aruba!
