Emily and Sean
Emily and Sean were high school sweethearts! Emily is best friends with Sean’s triplet sister. They all grew up together and have attended the same school since elementary school. Emily & Sean were together 6 years when he surprised her with the proposal. It was a beautiful sunny day in May, and they went for a walk on the Island Heights boardwalk. Unbeknownst to Emily their families were hiding in the distance as Sean proposed. Shortly after the proposal, he covered her eyes and surprised her with their new puppy, Luna, who was also their flower girl on the big day!

Katy and Chris
Katy & Chris met through mutual friends when they were living in San Diego. They both love the beach, the sun and to surf! They were together a few years when Chris proposed on the beach. It was sunrise and they were going surfing so they were doing a wave check. Chris popped the question and Katy was so surprised! They wanted to have a laid back, non traditional wedding and The Seafarer did not disappoint. When I met Katy, she was very stressed over not being able to find a photographer to capture the day the way she wanted it to be captured. She said everyone had their own agenda and didn’t’ really care that she didn’t want any of the traditional portraits. We connected through our love for California and I was happy to photograph anything and everything she wanted. We had a wonderful time at their wedding and I am so happy she reached out to us!

Jessica and Chris
Jessica & Chris met on match.com, formally known as Yahoo Personals. They chatted online for four months before they talked on the phone or met in person. They were dating 4 years before they got engaged. It all started on a snowy day in October! Chris called Jessica to ask if they could carve a pumpkin that night. They had been wanting to show her mom how to carve pumpkins and figured this was perfect timing! He came over and they picked a cute, easy design to teach her mom. When it was time to remove the seeds, they were taking turns and Jessica saw a long orange string coming out of the pumpkin. She was very confused and asked Chris what it was, when she looked inside the pumpkin she realized there was a small nicely wrapped box inside. After struggling for a little bit, she was finally able to remove the box from the inside of the pumpkin. She opened the box to find the most beautiful ring inside. Chris got in one knee and asked if she would marry him and of course she said YES!

Laura and Rick
Laura & Rick met at a mutual friends Christmas Party. They are both sweet, kind and fun to be around. They also spend most of their free time in the summer at the beach. Every summer they go to Cape Hatteras, NC for vacation. They were dating 5 years when Rick decided to propose by the Lighthouse on Caper Hatteras. A perfect setting for these two beach lovers! Their wedding was on the beach as well and Laura made the perfect décor to go along with the beach theme. Everything was so beautifully put together, it was a perfect, intimate wedding celebration.
Jameson and Brian
This wedding is extra special to me because I have known Jameson for years! We met in Napa. I was on a girls mini getaway trip and Jameson was our tour guide and Sommelier at Beringer Vineyards. We instantly became friends and he spent the rest of our trip showing us around Napa & Sonoma and taking us on tours of all the Vineyards. We kept in touch over the years and I was beyond thrilled to hear of his engagement. It was such an honor when he and Brian asked me to be part of their special day as a guest and they also wanted me to take photos throughout the day.
The wedding was at a gorgeous marina in Newport, RI. Friends and family traveled from all over the world to celebrate with them. It was so wonderful to meet so many people that they have met throughout the years. The following day they rented a sailboat to take us all on a tour of Newport. It was such a beautiful weekend!

Kelly and Ryan
Kelly & Ryan met at the St. Patrick’s Day Parade in Morristown, NJ, while standing in line to use the Porta-John. They started dating and have been together ever since. Ryan popped the question two years later at their house. He attached the ring to their dog, Tallulah’s collar and Kelly was totally surprised! Tallulah was the ringbearer at their wedding ceremony. She also posed happily for many photos for us.
