Growing up in New Jersey means the beach has always held a special place in our hearts. We have so many wonderful memories of weekends in Long Beach Island and family vacations in Ocean City. Cotton Candy on the boardwalk, the salty sweet air, the sound of seagulls, and the feel of sand between our toes, we love every bit of it! It’s all of these things and more that make Tara and Chris’ New Jersey shore wedding so enchanting. Every Jersey girl (or guy!) will love Tara and Chris’ beach wedding at The Sunset Ballroom at Jack Baker’s in Point Pleasant, New Jersey.
All love stories are special, but love stories about two people meeting while doing what they love holds a special place in our hearts. What could be more special than the love story of two nurses? A few years ago, our kind and beautiful bride Tara left her home state of New Jersey, her friends, and family to take a nursing job in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. No one knew why and she herself didn’t have a reason, but she just felt like she needed to go. She soon found out the reason was Chris! Tara met Chris working at the hospital in Pittsburgh and she says she knew even before they started dating that Chris was the man she was going to marry. How sweet is that?
Five years after Tara’s move to Pittsburgh she came back to New Jersey with a ring on her finger to marry the man of her dreams in Point Pleasant, New Jersey. The couple chose peach and mint as their wedding colors with charming beach themed accents. Tara was a stunning bride in her Maggie Sottero wedding gown. The bridesmaids looked beach ready and beautiful in their mint Kennedy Blue dresses. The beautiful flowers were by Every Bloomin’ Thing in Forked River, New Jersey. The bride herself put together all of the decorations.
We feel so blessed to have had the opportunity to meet Tara and Chris and photograph their big day. They are one of the kindest and most caring couples we have had the pleasure of working with. Anyone who knows them can tell you how much they cherish each other and treasure all of the people in their lives. Their wedding day was no exception. The couple was just glowing all day long, enjoying every moment together, and celebrating with their friends and family. It’s our pleasure to share with you the beautiful beach photos we took of Tara and Chris’ big day. We hope you enjoy the pictures as much as we enjoyed taking them!
