Sinclair + Pat // Backyard Shore Wedding Mantaloking, NJ
There is just so much I loved about Sinclair and Pat’s backyard wedding. From the compass escort cards to the larger than life peonies, and the unbeatable scenery. From the first time we spoke, I knew Sinclair and Pat were my kindred spirits. Their wedding day mirrored so much of Adam and I’s own wedding day, there was no way we couldn’t work together. It was meant to be.
I always like when a couple sees each other for the first time on their wedding day to be as private as I can make it. It’s the only time of the day you can be alone even for 5 minutes and take it all in. As much as I tried to find a little secluded spot for Sinclair and Pat, Sinclair’s dad happened to just come back from the beach at just the right time, so obviously we had him jump in for a photo as soon as they saw each other. ;)
The ceremony took place in a little old church built in 1889 a few blocks from her families home and everyone walked back over to Sinclair’s grandparents home for the party. In the meantime, we took a boat ride for some more photos and arrived to cocktail hour in style. Under a gorgeous white tent surrounded by the ocean on a beautiful June evening, these two celebrated their love with their family and friends in the best way. There were some incredible dancers out there and Sinclair’s grandfather set off a canon at sunset! What an amazing day.
