Windrift Hotel, Avalon, New Jersey Wedding: Brian and Brittany

When I first met Brittany and Brian on Skype, I immediately knew I really (really) wanted to document their wedding! They described their engagement- how Brian proposed to her on the three year anniversary of the date they met. That while they were deciding to spend their life together, they played Of Monsters and Men, and that they wanted to get married in a place that met so much to both of them throughout their lives- Avalon.

Brittany and Brian decided to start this new chapter of their life at the Windrift Hotel in Avalon, NJ. From the getting ready, to the ceremony, and the awesome party that followed- everything would take place there. It was a windy day, but there was sun (and lots of it) and Brian and Brittany were ready for their First Look on the beach, followed by their bridal party shots right on the beach as well. A heartfelt ceremony sealed their new beginning, followed by an amazing party in their honor. Enjoy all the gorgeousness of this light, beachy and fun aquamarine and tangerine wedding that Brittany and Brian worked so hard on!
