Pier Village Wedding
Ocean Place Resort and Spa
Long Branch, NJ Wedding Photographer
Beach Resort it is…
Since my beautiful couple love the beach, shared their first kiss there and David proposed to Brittany in the same spot, how could they not have a Pier Village Wedding! Pier Village located Long Branch, NJ is a super hot spot on the Jersey Shore. Pier Village is perfect for those beach lovers that want to celebrate their wedding day at the beach. There are a few venues to choose from in the Pier Village area and our couple chose Ocean Place Resort and Spa which is located right on the beach.
Oh hello gorgeous…
So, I walk in David’s mom’s home in Tinton Falls, NJ and my jaw dropped to the ground when I met Brittany. She is a fitness model and let me tell you she is absolutely stunning! We spent a quiet afternoon photographing Brittany getting ready as the rest of the girls were getting ready at the hotel. Brittany was stunning in her Oleg Cassini gown and its tiered ruffles and rightfully so looked like a princess with her tiara. Her make-up by Glamour Chicks was perfection. I especially loved the sparkly gold eye shadow. In the home we used many of the beautiful pieces of furniture and locations. We even did a little surprise for the groom, but he won’t get to see that until I deliver the entire gallery. hehe…
During this same time, David was over at the hotel with all his guys preparing for the day. He,also being into fitness, looked super handsome in his Vera Wang Tux accented with his white boutonnière and black tie.
The first look…
On the way to the hotel for the first look, it started raining. Insert tears here…. LOL. NOT… we found a lovely spot inside the hotel that did not have to much foot traffic to do the first look. They were so excited to see each other and was such a beautiful sight. We decided upon a first look in order to get many of the necessary photos done before the ceremony so that the couple could enjoy their entire reception. After the first look we met up with the radiant bridal party,the girls in their long gold dresses and guys in their black tuxes and bow ties with blue boutonnières.
David and Brittany had a traditional Jewish wedding ceremony taking place inside the Ocean Place Resort and Spa under the chupah or wedding canopy. They exchanged their rings, shared wine and shared a kiss under the tallit or prayer cloth.
Their reception was beautifully decorated with royal blue and gold accents and floral arrangements. The family, bridal party and bride and groom entered the room with much excitement! Upon their entrance, Brittany and David went through a bridge of their entire bridal party. They danced a beautiful first dance and inserted a few spins and a dip! Parent dances were both emotional and elegant and speeches were well thought out and touching. All in all it was a great night! The food was fabulous and the guests had a great time dancing. we finished out the night with a few photos of the couple. Congrats guys! It was a pleasure getting to know you and your families! So a Pier Village Wedding is where it is at if you want a beach wedding!
