Anna + Matt | A Colorful Long Beach Island New Jersey Wedding at Sea Shell Resort and Beach Club

Welcome to the longest blog post of my life. But these pictures were so good and I couldn’t possibly narrow it down!

Let’s start with a little bit of history…. When I was 11 years old I moved to Kentucky and met this family. They had 5 kids. As one of 6 kids, there’s some unspoken, super comforting thing when you meet other people with large families. They understand your chaos. That’s how I met Anna and her family.

A few years later, they moved and we moved and we lost touch over time. Fast forward 13ish years, I had reconnected with Anna’s sister, Sarah. Over dinner one night she told me that Anna had recently gotten engaged in Italy. I threw a shameless plug in and told her that if she needed a wedding photographer, I knew where she could find one!

A few weeks later I get a message from Anna, she booked us for her wedding, we reconnected at dinner after their engagement session and spent their wedding weekend with them, capturing their beautiful love.

Matt and Anna got married at the beautiful Sea Shell Resort and Beach Club on Long Beach Island in New Jersey. They had a beautiful day surrounded by an incredible amount of love and support from their family and closest friends. You know I love a good neutrals color palette, but I absolutely ADORED all the pops of bright, happy colors they had throughout their day!

Matt and Anna are huge fans of all things brunch related and made the day uniquely theirs by having a brunch themed reception, mimosas and all! Shoutout to the incredible team at Sea Shell Resort for the INSANELY GOOD FOOD they served. I was blown away, truly. They also had a late night pizza delivery – which is one of the best wedding ideas anyone has ever had.

Mr. + Mrs Fitzpatrick, we’re so grateful that you trusted us to capture your beautiful day! We hope you enjoy every second of your honeymoon!!

Enjoy this peek into their wedding day!
