Angela and Jason - September 21st
Whew. Last weekend we had 3 weddings, yes, you heard me right, 3 weddings. It was our second triple header of the year (the other one was Memorial Day weekend). Our first one of the weekend was on Friday in Beach Haven, NJ at The Sea Shell. We photographed Angela's sister's wedding 3 years ago, and Angela was thrilled we were available and willing to travel for her own wedding. We love to travel and Friday was a gorgeous day! Not too hot, not too chilly - perfect fall beach weather.
There were lots of tears, dancing, hugging, running, smiling, laughing -all of it going on during this day! A short beach ceremony was held followed by some portraits and then a fun reception. Angela's cousin, who is only a few days younger than her, was a Maid of Honor and gave a speech that had Angela in tears. Rounds of shots were done, and everyone hit the dance floor. It was great seeing some of the guests from Terry's wedding (Angela's sister) and it made for a fun evening.
Oh and before I forget, I even got good and soaking wet at this beach wedding! But that will come later....
First shot here is a sweet ring shot my husband did in the sand.
Who needs scissors? One of the bridesmaids dresses had some threads hanging off, so Nikki, Angela's cousin just used her teeth!
I unknowingly set this shot up for myself - I had all of the girls give me their bouquets for a group shot, then put them down here all organized (unconsciously). When I went to pick them back up, I saw this.
A tender moment between Angela and her mom while we were doing some photos on the beach.
The beach-goers were unperturbed about the bride parading around getting photographs taken.
Angela had the most beautiful brown eyes!
Yes, she sat down on sandy boards - No, she didn't get her dress ruined - Yes, we got some awesome shots!
Jason trying to figure out his tie.
In the hallway at the hotel, the sweet light was coming in.
The first glance as Angela comes down the aisle...
After the ceremony was ended, Jason and Angela walked down to the beach for some time alone...
And were then joined by their family and wedding party.
Having some fun playing on the beach, Angela couldn't hold her dress and bouquet and try to run around!
The Maid and Matron of Honor speeches were quite hilarious and tearful.
One of Angela's other bridesmaids, Meredith - her and her fiance Tim were so cute together!
I love this shot of Jason's mom letting loose on the dance floor!
And one last shot sitting next to the Tiki Bar!
