Christina and Alex – a union of United States and Austria. Alex was originally from Austia but was here in California for work. He met Christina and decided to stay :). Because most of Christina’s family and friends are from New Jersey they got married in the Grand Hotel in Cape May, NJ. I, being a south jersey wedding photographer, had an honor to serve them on their wedding day with my photography services.
Their wedding ceremony took place on the beach right in front of the Grand Hotel. The tiny little rain drops were coming our way just a little bit before the ceremony. However, right before everything started, the sky have cleared out and we even got some beautiful sunshine.
I loved the idea of the basket for everyone’s shoes right before the entrance to the beach. People could comfortably leave their shoes and walk barefoot to the ceremony sight and fully enjoy the beautiful and relaxing setting.Christina’s sister was playing guitar for their ceremony music. It was unique and beautiful! Live music always brings something so special for beach wedding ceremonies especially when the musician is a part of your family.
And a super great moment happened when all those handsome groomsmen have also showed off their muscles and helpfulness! Christina’s grandmother was in a wheelchair so it would be almost impossible for her to get to the beach ceremony location. Grand Hotel doesn’t have paved path going to the beach (well, just like all other hotels that do beach wedding ceremonies). So the groomsmen came to rescue and carried grandma to the wedding ceremony sight. The ceremony was filled with beautiful words, wishes and stories about Christina and Alex, but at the end they were married! The kiss and the celebration has begun! We grabbed a portrait of the whole group together (which I always love if we can get!). And we have started getting some of Alex and Christina’s wedding portraits.
