The Reeds at Shelter Haven Wedding | Shelter Haven NJ {Molly + Nick}

September 22, 2017

Molly and Nick have the cutest story! They met on Tinder, yes Tinder! Molly's friend challenged her to go on Tinder for one day and if she didn't meet anyone she could go off of it. Little did Molly know she was going to meet her future husband that day...one and done! I loved hearing this because it actually does work! Molly and Nick are beyond in love with each other and I feel so lucky to have been able to capture their love during their engagement session and now on their big day! I've grown to know Molly pretty closely over the last year and now consider her not only a client but a friend. 

 

 

From an exquisite dress, to decor to every custom sign, Molly did not miss a single detail and it paid off! Their wedding color palate was a blend of pale blush and navy mixed with creams and tones of green.  Nick and Molly love the beach, so The Reeds at Shelter Haven made the perfect setting for their luxury beach wedding. This was my first time down in Shelter Haven and I can't wait to go back, such an adorable town! The ballroom has floor to ceiling windows on one side over looking the water, so serene.

 

Molly had a blend of traditional round tables mixed with farm tables.  Kristin Rockhill of Details of I Do, transformed the ballroom into a beach wonderland with luscious centerpieces, table runners covered in greens and intricate beachy accents. 

 

Their ceremony was filled with emotion and their reception continued to wow the crowd thanks to Mazz Entertainment and the super talented vocalist Nicole Zuratis.  They even had a beautiful violinist, Jersey Gina,  serenading guests as the sun went down over the water.  Molly and Nick danced the night away with their friends and family and had such a blast! 

 

This is the last wedding I decided to shoot until our baby boy arrives in October so I may be a bit emotional! I want to give a huge shout out to Julieanne from Orange Blossom Photography for being a second shooter for me. I was so worried about being 8 months pregnant and she was incredible, thank you!!! And always to my husband for being there to support and shoot with me. 

 

Congrats again Molly and Nick, we wish you a lifetime of love and laughter! Xo
