Ashley and Matt got married at The Wave Resort on one of the most BEAUTIFUL fall days in late October! I had been counting down the days until their wedding since the moment they had booked with me. Ashley and Matt are so much fun to spend time with (I literally had the best time hanging out with them at our engagement session on Governor’s Island last year!) and I knew that their wedding day was going to be so very special.
Ashley got ready in a hotel room that would make any photographers heart sing. It had a magical view of the ocean and was surrounded by floor to ceiling windows! We took photos of Ashley and her bridesmaids enjoying the morning all together (and we may have popped a bottle or two of champagne confetti, which was so much fun!). When it was time for the first look, we went upstairs to the rooftop deck. Ashley and Matt’s bridal party watched as they saw each other for the first time! Afterwards, we took couple portraits all around the venue. I loved how Ashley and Matt were so willing to go to various nearby locations! We were able to capture them on the boardwalk, beach, and carousel (I loved all of the variety!).
Their wedding ceremony was held during sunset back on the rooftop deck overlooking the ocean. We had the most amazing cotton candy pink skies as Ashley and Matt said their vows to one another! After the ceremony, guests enjoyed the indoor/outdoor feel of the reception. SCE Event Group kept everyone up and out of their seats dancing the entire night away!
Congratulations, Ashley and Matt! Thank you both so much for trusting me to photograph your wedding day! I hope you are having the most amazing time on your honeymoon! Enjoy some of my favorites below ❤️
