If you have missed Andrea and Scott beautiful wedding ceremony pictures, check them out here at LBI Wedding Photographer :: Andrea+Scott Ocean Place Beach Wedding Ceremony. And just the mention one more time Andrea and Scott’s beautiful beach wedding was taking place in Ocean Place in Long Branch, NJ.
And to continue the story of this amazingly beautiful wedding day I have to tell you that after bridal party pictures, the bridal party was let go to enjoy the cocktail hour and me and Andrea and Scott headed back to the beach to get a few of their portraits. The weather was perfect, the sun was bright and happy, and wind was catching Andrea’s veil! Everything was magically beautiful!
Some palms trees were there for the beginning of the shoot! It gave the photos pretty tropical wedding feeling! I loved it and Andrea and Scott did too! It made it feel like a beautiful destination wedding which all of their family and friends were able to attend.
Some cool rocks were there for the rest of the shoot! This madly in couple couple was superb!
After we were done with the wedding photos we headed into wedding reception in Ocean Place in Long Branch. All the details were beautiful beach theme wedding details, very well thought through and all beautifully put together. In addition to rustic wedding decor they had a wedding table centerpieces that had fish in the them!!! Yes, fish! It was a vase filled with water and fish swimming in it :). The cake topper was a diamond covered ‘B’ stands for the first letter of their last name.
And in a couple of moments, Andrea and Scott made a grand entrance into the room and went straight into their first dance. Andrea was so self-conscious about the dance and she told me a few times that she is not a great dancer. However, I was super impressed by the way Andrea and Scott danced. It was probably the most impressive dance I have ever witnessed!
Andrea sang a beautiful love song to her now husband. It was beautiful!
And the cake was cut and you would think this was the end of the wedding but after-party was coming! Everyone watched a wonderful slideshow of Andrea and Scott growing up and changing into adults, their first photos together and their love story. And at the end we watched what was coming next – Chinese lanterns!!!
Chinese lanterns are a symbol of blessing and good luck in addition to being super fun. Andrea and Scott wanted their guests to experience this beauty as well. Everyone received a lantern and we headed out to the beach!
It was slightly too windy but we managed to get a few shots to capture what Andrea and Scott wanted to see in their wedding!
And afterwards everyone enjoyed delicious wedding desserts, smores and coffee at the camp fire. It was super romantic and fun!
And when we said goodbyes, we got just a few more shots in the gorgeous lobby of the Ocean Place.
Thank you Andrea and Scott for having me at your wedding!
