If you haven’t noticed, it’s been a while since I have last made a blog post. I admit that I have been slacking in that department, but I’m definitely still here and ready to blow the dust off this blog and start sharing all the AWESOME that has been getting in front of my camera lately. So, consider this fair warning to your eyeballs! Let’s get back in the saddle, and kick things off with a BLAST of a good time wedding filled with tons of fun and lots of emotions too! Sit back and relax because it’s time to feast your peepers on the wedding of Adrienne + Melissa. Put simply, I love these two incredible ladies, and I think after seeing this wedding you will too! Adrienne and Melissa had SO much fun on their wedding day, which to me is what it’s ALL about! I challenge you to look at these photos without feeling something, go ahead, I triple dog dare ya! They got married at one of my favorite places in New Jersey, Asbury Park, at one of my favorite restaurants in Asbury Park, Porta. Adrienne and Melissa got met up for their first look at the ultra hip Asbury Hotel, which is also where Adrienne got ready. From there we hit the boardwalk for some fun photos with the ladies and also their super fun bridesmaids as well. And although it did start to rain, that certainly did not put a damper on things in the least bit! These two were ready to have fun no matter what happened that day. Their ceremony had lots of little surprises like Adrienne’s long scroll of vows to Melissa, a surprise appearance from one of their dogs, even if only in two dimensional form, and TONS of confetti blasted from canons as they had their first smooch! And as for the reception, well, I’ll just let you scroll down to see what happened there! A HUGE congratulations to these two amazing people, and a shout out to my second shooter Danette who’s photos also appear in this blog post.
