Andrea and Matt had a gorgeous fall Berkeley Oceanfront Hotel wedding in Asbury Park, NJ. Their wedding day felt classy with elegant ivory and gold details and was definitely the big fun party that Andrea and Matt wanted with their family and friends. Andrea grew up in this area and always knew she wanted to be married by the beach. The Berkeley Oceanfront Hotel gave them all the classy beach vibes they wanted for their wedding day!
Fall Berkeley Oceanfront Hotel Wedding
Andrea got ready at The Berkeley Oceanfront Hotel and I loved photographing her prep in the mezzanine there. The entire hotel feels super classic and it worked perfectly with Andrea’s look! I especially loved the first look between Andrea and her father – he was so emotional at seeing his daughter as a bride. Matt prepared across the street at The Asbury Hotel with his guys. Another one of my favorite venues in this area! Andrea and Matt met for the first time for their traditional church ceremony and it was so sweet to watch Matt light up seeing his gorgeous bride walking down the aisle towards him.
After their ceremony, we took the trolley over to the beach. It’s so fun when couples use trolleys for their wedding day transportation! It was a super windy fall day on the beach but Andrea, Matt, and their wedding party were troopers to capture portraits on the sand. Once we were all over the wind, we headed back to The Berkeley Oceanfront Hotel and squeezed in a few more bride and groom portraits before cocktail hour.
Their reception was simply amazing! Andrea and Matt brought the well-known wedding band Brian Kirk and the Jerks to the party. Needless to say, there was lots of dancing throughout the night! Everyone loved the live music and all of the sweet details so carefully planned by the newlyweds and their planners I Do Planning and Events. Congratulations again, Andrea and Matt! Your fall wedding day was simply stunning. I’m so happy I could be with you to celebrate!
