This past summer I had the honor of traveling out of Texas to celebrate Danielle and Alex at their Disney inspired New Jersey beach wedding! I will be totally honest – although I’m used to traveling, New Jersey was definitely a first for me! Let’s just say that I felt very southern – and more specifically, very Texan! Still, I loved getting to explore a new area, and more importantly capturing what ended up to be a gorgeous day for Danielle and Alex!
New Jersey is home for Danielle, and she had dreams of being surrounded by all of her family and friends with photos on the beach. This made it an easy decision to call New Jersey their wedding destination! Alex and his family were happy to come along for the ride and fit right in with their new circle of family! From the rehearsal dinner on Friday, to the ceremony at at the over 100 year old Woodbridge Presbyterian Church, and finally the beach front reception at Crystal Point, the weekend was one to remember fondly! Even better was the fact that rain had threatened to put a damper on the wedding plans, but it held off just about the entire day!
One of my favorite aspects of Danielle and Alex’s New Jersey beach wedding was the touches of Disney woven in throughout the day! Danielle had each of her bridesmaids themed to a specific Disney princess, complete with matching color schemes and florals! And you absolutely CANNOT miss the reception decor – each table had a different Disney movie theme, and they truly went all-out!
If you know Danielle and Alex, you know that they are a total power couple – smart, high achievers, and so very successful in their careers. I was so happy to see them letting loose for the weekend and slowing down to enjoy time with their families and, most importantly, one another. The party at the end of the night was a blast and even carried on to an after party across the street! You know it’s a good one when people don’t want it to end!
I had so much fun spending my weekend with Danielle and Alex along with their families! What a privilege to play a small part in a beautiful day that I know they will remember fondly for years to come! View some of my favorites from Danielle and Alex’s Disney inspired New Jersey beach wedding below!
