On the shores of Barnegat Bay sits The Mallard Island Yacht Club, a charming, secluded boathouse with a stacked stone fireplace and a picturesque view of Long Beach Island across the bay. This sweet little chapel-like space is where Sam & Pete tied the knot. That morning as the bride and groom prepared for their first look, the skies opened into a complete downpour. But Pete stood safe beneath the white-washed eaves of the boathouse as he waited for Sam. When he turned to look at her, it was as if time stopped. Even the rain seemed to catch itself, to fade. All that remained was Sam and Pete, completely aglow and unable to take their eyes off each other!

By the ceremony time, the rain had stopped completely. Low, palatial white clouds rolled along the horizon and gave way to a radiant, post-storm, light and a rainbow! Once Sam & Pete were officially married, we headed outside to take advantage of that awesome light. The photos we captured of the bride and groom walking hand-in-hand along the docks beneath silver-blue and sunset pink skies are some of my all-time favorites!

The reception was a gilded affair in the ornate ballroom. With tables dressed in candlelight and arrangements of pink and white blooms in sleek, glass vases from MDS Floral. In the end, the morning’s rain gave way to a truly perfect day for this sweet couple!
