Ocean City, New Jersey Wedding Album: Don and Tracy

If you've been following me for a while, you might know that I have a special place in my heart for beach weddings and more specifically, at The Flanders Hotel, in Ocean City, New Jersey. The hotel has a very classic feeling with antique furniture, and gold trim, just steps away from the boardwalk and beach. The Ocean City boardwalk is so vibrant with shops, rides, and murals on the walls overlooking the beach. All of the liveliness of this beach town draws brides and grooms here each year for their wedding- including myself and my husband eight years ago. When it was time to make some new sample wedding albums this year, I chose Tracy and Don's wedding at The Flanders Hotel- it was SUCH a great day.

I love my heirloom wedding albums. The cover options range from the most vibrant linens, to rich, luxe leathers and I'm a sucker for debossing. You'll see "Don & Tracy" debossed on the cover, stamped right onto the cover in such a timeless font. The photographs are printed onto the pages and the pages are as thick as a nickel. Here are a few of my favorite spreads from Tracy and Don's album. I'll also say, in the digital age we live in, couples don't always purchase wedding albums at the time of their wedding and then they feel stuck a year or two (or more!) later and not quite sure how to go about it. It's NEVER too late to get an album! It's a family heirloom that tells the story of the beginning of your family. If you're a Styled Pink couple and are wanting your very own album- let me know!

Sand Barrens Golf Club Wedding, Swainton, NJ: Paul and Christy

Christy and Paul's wedding day started off in Wildwood for the bride and groom's getting ready. I started with Christy and her bridesmaids, while my second photographer started with Paul and his guys just blocks away. The room was buzzing with excited and even with so many girls getting ready in one house, Christy was ready ahead of schedule! I'm pretty sure she was just beyond excited for her First Look with Paul. They had their First Look on the boardwalk in Wildwood with their bridal party watching in the distance. Once they saw each other, we started their formal photographs on the boardwalk, beach, and then also at their venue- Sand Barrens Golf Club in Swainton, New Jersey. It was such a brilliant idea on Christy's part to do the First Look on the beach and do more photos at the golf course- it added so much variety to their photographs. After a heartfelt ceremony overlooking the greens, the party started. The dance floor was buzzing the entire night in celebration of the new Mr. and Mrs. Chladek! Congratulations you two!
