After having to postpone their wedding due to the pandemic, Ariella and Lou were finally married last weekend on a beautiful summer day. Ariella started the day out at the brand new Wave Resort in Long Branch and I have to say that this is my new favorite hotel on the Jersey Shore. Wait until you see all the gorgeous light we had during bridal prep! You really can’t beat all that natural light – a photographer’s dream. I also loved discovering all the details of the day. Ariella and Lou chose a beautiful color palette for an early fall wedding. Blushes, burgundy and cream made for the perfect combination and it all came together beautifully.
Once Ariella was ready, we headed to Windows on the Water at Frogbridge. While I was photographing her with her cute little flower girls and her beautiful bridesmaids, Lou was with my associate photographer, Marianne, hanging out with the guys and getting ready for their early evening ceremony. When it finally came to the ceremony, these two were so excited!! They hadn’t seen each other all day long and they were pumped about tying the knot. It was a heartfelt ceremony and the look on Lou’s face when he saw Ariella was priceless.
After the ceremony, we did Ariella and Lou’s portrait session while their guests enjoyed cocktail hour and these two knocked it out of the park! They warmed up to the camera right away and gave us a perfect mix of timeless and romantic photos for their wedding album. Keep scrolling to see how this wedding day came together!
Congratulations, Ariella and Lou; what a beautiful couple you make! I wish you all the best in your marriage today and always!
