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!

The Flanders Hotel Wedding, Ocean City, NJ: Dorian and Samantha

Dorian was living in Arkansas, Samantha in New Jersey. While browsing through fitness hashtags on Instagram, Samantha came across a photo of a man in a Phillies hat, leading her to believe he was local... little did she know the man she would fall in love with was many miles away. They would begin a long distance relationship with countless phone calls, plane tickets and lots of planning to be with each other as often as possible. Finally, their long distance relationship became much easier when Dorian moved to New Jersey. They planned a gorgeous wedding at The Flanders Hotel in Ocean City, New Jersey. The day started with thunderstorms but the weather cleared and I was SO glad so we could get some portraits of Mr. and Mrs. Terry on the beach and boardwalk. It's been such a joy planning with Samantha, when I left the night of the wedding I told her I was going to miss her, and then she reminded me we live five minutes from each other. It was an honor to witness two families coming together and celebrating such an amazing couple starting their lives together. Congratulations, Mr. and Mrs. Terry! This is just the beginning of an amazing chapter!

Samantha is stunning, and she was so laid back. Rain on the wedding day? No worries. All she cared about was marrying the love of her life!
