Jennifer and Patrick chose to tie the knot and have a Beautiful Beach Wedding at The Grand Hotel in Cape May, New Jersey. The Grand Hotel has is an absolutely gorgeous venue to celebrate your special day. Their ceremony was on the beach, and their reception was full of life as everyone danced the night away. Jenn and Patrick could not have asked for a better day to have their wedding. The weather was perfect. The sun was shining and the evening sky was a beautiful ombre.
When we think about a September beach wedding, we think about warm days and cool nights. The weather has been acting kind of funny lately. Jennifer and Patrick got to experience a truly gorgeous summer wedding in September.
I highly recommend having a Beautiful Beach Wedding at The Grand Hotel in Cape May. It’s right across the street from the beach which makes the ceremony and the portraits so easy and convenient. Cape May is also a great place to have your honeymoon and a wonderful location for out of town guests to stay the weekend for a mini vacay!

Cape May is for lovers! It’s also the best location for a Sunny Cape May Surprise Proposal! I was so excited when I was contact by their friend who was planning this surprise proposal!
It was an absolutely gorgeous day! The birds were actively nesting in the dunes, the Johnathan Livingston Seagulls were soaring along the horizon, and the sea creatures were even washing up on the shore! (Of course we MAY have helped one special horse shoe crab get back to the water!) They must have all wanted to see the big event! (Sorry, that’s my fairy tale side coming out just knowing it would be a day to remember!)
Their friends set up this beautiful setting on the Cove in Cape May. Complete with a picnic basket, champagne, and even some bug spray… just in case those little buggers came out to bite! It was all planned out and even had the most beautiful blue Hydrangea flowers and blanket to match. It was perfect! There is no better place than Cape May to confess your love for that special person in your life. From the moment I saw them walking up the beach, I just KNEW she would say yes! And she did, and it was a beautiful moment! I always feel so warm inside when I get to witness and be a part of something so magical.
May your lives be long, happy and healthy today and all of the tomorrows in your years to come as husband and wife! Until then, HAPPY WEDDING PLANNING! CHEERS!
If you are preparing to propose to that special someone, think about planning a Sunny Cape May Surprise Proposal! You will not be disappointed with the beautiful sandy beaches, view of the historic Cape May lighthouse at the Cove, and the animals all around you! It’s as if the world stops for just one moment to focus on you. After all, you deserve a happy ending and a little magic!
I was VERY excited to go back here, because it is one of my favorite locations to shoot! The grounds are super pretty, and I ADORE their front entrance. When we started the day, it was over cast, but then it started to POUR RAIN. Every bride gets upset when it rains, but, as professionals we can only stay super positive and reassure them that everything will be JUST FINE. And everything WAS just fine. Lauren was DROP DEAD GORGEOUS in her wedding dress, she had the prettiest details, and Matt was super calm all afternoon. We did have to have an inside ceremony which was a bit crazy, but it all worked out.
I have to say that Sand Barrens was able to come up with a plan very fast, and they were amazing all night long! It’s always nice when we can work together with one goal in mind – the newly weds! It’s their day, and we need to make it perfect for them! I think we all came together and helped make this day amazing for them. If you are looking for a venue that can pull bunnies out of a hat – this is the place, you need to book a Sand Barrens Golf Club Wedding!
Lauren and Matt, not only were amazingly calm the entire night, but they had such a gorgeous wedding. Their bridal party was dressed black tie with black lace dresses with the most lucious red rose bouquets! Their theme held true through each table and even the cake. I love when a theme works seamlessly! It was very romantic, and most importantly, these two know how to have a good party!
A HUGE THANK YOU to both Lauren and Matt for allowing me to capture their memories on this extra special day! I had a blast, thank you for having us.
Workshops are everywhere, you just need to tap into the right area and attend. I was lucky enough to see that Hello Gorgeous Photography (my wedding photographers and dear friends) were throwing a workshop in Cape May, NJ at the most amazing hotel/wedding venue ever – Congress Hall. Now, let me explain my excitement here. First off, I love HGP. My husband and I chose them for our wedding. They’re amazing ladies, who I enjoy dancing the Cupid Shuffle with, laughing, and basically all things photo. Secondly – CONGRESS HALL!!! Okay, so, then the planning begins. I see posts and get excited because not only will it be at Congress Hall, but the couple is gorgeous, a previous bride of theirs who will be wearing a Vera Wang dress, Bailey of Just Be. designed all the fancy paper goods (menu cards, invitations, save the dates, adorable name tags with glitter, you name it, if it was paper, she did it!). Then the florist was Savannah’s Garden! OMGEEEEEEE seriously! To top it off, Jamie Cakes, who I had no idea who she was, but she makes the most amazing cupcakes – I have ever tasted – to – this – day!
So, without any more delay, I want to show you all the amazing photos I was able to take from this workshop. I can’t tell you enough how happy I am, how proud of myself, and how much I highly reccomend the HGP Workshops!
