Liz and Rob's Wedding Day
What a beautiful day for a wedding! Liz and Rob got married at St. Mary's Chapel in Middletown, NJ and before heading to their beachfront wedding venue, Windows on the Water at Surfrider Beach in Sea Bright, NJ, we stopped at Deep Cut Gardens to grab a few photos with the luscious greenery. Tons of natural light throughout this gorgeous wedding! They were able to get so much variety and had an amazing timeline for portraits. We worked alongside Color Room Films on video..dream team! Liz looked absolutely stunning in her gown from Kleinfeld Bridal, I love that she added the belt for the reception and her hair style was so classy. We had sparklers scheduled at night after cake cutting, but on a whim, decided to do them during sunset and I am so glad we did! The sky was such a pretty blue and the lighting was perfect! We got some of our favorite sparkler photos ever! Congratulations to Liz, Rob and their families! It was such a pleasure photographing your big day!
The bride got ready at her parents house in Middletown, NJ and Rob at the Courtyard Marriott in Tinton Falls. They exchanged gifts and I absolutely love the cufflinks made out of baseballs Liz gave to Rob! How unique!
Wedding Ceremony at St. Mary's Chapel in Middletown, NJ
Gotta love a church that is well lit! Their ceremony was short and sweet, and they finished off with an exit with bubbles! I also have to shout out the Pastor, he was pretty funny ;)
Wedding Photos at Deep Cut Gardens in Middletown, NJ
Deep Cut Gardens in Middletown is full of shade, which is awesome for us "natural light photographers" when we are shooting portraits in the middle of the day. This gave them so much variety since their venue was on the beach, too! How cute are the kids?! And I LOVE the color of the bridesmaid dresses, their florals went perfectly with their color scheme as well!

Liz and Rob's one requirement was that they make it to cocktail hour. Who could blame them with all that amazing food, right? Not only that, but this was a great time for them to great their guests so they could enjoy reception. We had about an hour before cocktail started so we got a few more bridal party photos before finishing up with some photos of the two of them. I can't believe the beach was so crowded and you can't even tell in the photos!
Their reception details were so pretty and I loved their table "numbers"! One side was a travel destination and the other was a photo from their visit. How cool is that?!
