Clare and Tommy are married! These two got so lucky and had a gorgeous 70 degree day for their November wedding at The Mill Lakeside Manor. Who would’ve thought this perfect day was in their future when they met on Hinge? They connected over Clare’s description of her dream trip around Ireland. Tommy had taken an Ireland trip with friends a few years earlier so of course he took the opportunity to share some tips with Clare and not long after, these two were on their first official date. Now these two are husband wife and I couldn’t be happier for them! When Clare and Tommy began to plan their dream wedding, they knew it would be in the fall. They both dreamed of a day focused on the beautiful foliage and fall colors. The Mill at Lakeside Manor was the perfect choice to bring their vision to life!
Spring Lake Heights NJ Wedding Day
Clare and Tommy’s wedding day was truly a quintessential shore wedding with ceremony at St. Peter’s in Point Pleasant and reception at the Mill Lakeside Manor in Spring Lake Heights. Clare prepared for the day at her parents’ home in Spring Lake. It was absolutely beautiful! Her parents’ house has so much natural light – a photographer’s dream. Clare was surrounded by love and laugher as she prepared with her bridal party. All of her bridal party signed her shoes and left her messages, which I thought was super sweet! Since the weather was so warm, we opted for lots of portraits outside once she was ready with her family and bridal party.
Tommy was so happy to see his bride – and I know Clare couldn’t wait to see him, either! They had a traditional church ceremony and I love that their church had a balcony for some wide shots. After their ceremony, we left to make the most of the grounds at The Mill Lakeside Manor. There were so many pretty colors all around the property that made this outdoor loving couple super happy!! We were all thankful for the warm weather this day. It made portrait time even more enjoyable.
Before we knew it, it was time for the party! Clare and Tommy planned a super fun reception for their guests. One of my favorite things might be the “living room” they set up at The Mill. Their guests could cozy up and leave sweet messages on their audio guestbook. I love this trend! Congratulations again, Clare and Tommy! Your beautiful shore wedding day was a joy to photograph. I wish you a lifetime of love and happiness together!
