Lynne and Nate

Wow.... What an incredible couple and wedding I had the pleasure of shooting this weekend.  I met up with Nate and his buddies at the Golden Inn in Avalon while Lynne was getting her hair and makeup done.  We had a ton of time to shoot the groomsmen because things got a bit behind schedule, and ended up getting so many awesome shots I can't even post them all!  They decided to meet beforehand (a HUGE help for all future brides, as you will see with the photos), and we headed over to the Wetlands Institute in Stone Harbor, NJ.  Beautiful location, extremely hospitable staff, amazing food, kick ass DJ's called Roots and Groove, everything about this place was great.  Magically the rain held off the whole night, and left me with some amazing skies to work with.  A rooftop ceremony and a crazy party took us to the end of the day.  Check out some photos of this awesome couple!

i asked lynne to jump on the bed and i got a bunch of confused faces, but she literally hopped up onto the bed immediately in her dress with no help.  and you can't tell but this ceiling is about 1 ft taller than her.  haha, so funny
