Starting to write this blog post, I almost feel overwhelmed and at a loss for words. And if you know me, you’d be surprised at that statement, haha! But more than anything, I’m just overcome with gratitude. Being part of this day with this beautiful couple was an incredible honor and a privilege for me. I actually met Jen and Mel and their sweet family about seven years ago. And while I never got to rock out and sing Karaoke with Jen (one day!! haha!) over that time, she has truly become a cherished friend. The joy and love I was able to witness on this day, was just a gift. And I am so unbelievably blessed to have been a part of it. Their Atlantic City Country Club wedding was simply perfect. But don’t listen to me see for yourself below just how gorgeous!
I started with the ladies in the bridal suite. I gathered all the details, some shots of the bride getting ready and a few sweet moments with her family and girls before hand.
Nikki hung out with the Mel and the guys in the guys locker room to get some prep shots.
Jen + Mel did a non seeing first look moment! Such a sweet quiet moment before the ceremony.
This was definitely one of my favorite moments of the day! Jen’s first look with her dad.
Then we headed to the ceremony, and holy cow it was gorgeous!
We grabbed quick portraits of wedding party and then focused mainly on bride + groom photos, as that was the most important to Jen! I love being able to customize timeline based on the bride’s preference. What is important to her, is important to me.
Um, safe to say, they rocked their bride & groom portraits!
One of the most gorgeous brides ever! I had so much fun with her bridal portraits.
Congratulations Jen + Mel! Your day was perfect, and thank you SO much for choosing me to be a part of it, it truly meant the world to me!
