Surf City, NJ beachfront wedding | Maria + Brad

Ladies and gentlemen, the race was not even close. The votes came in and the polls have been counted. I should have predicted this but the Chiappetta’s and De Fazzio’s were looming in the shadows of my blog, just waiting to jump on that voting contest!

So without further ado, here are the portraits from Maria and Brad’s BEAUTIFUL beachfront wedding in Surf City, New Jersey. I will follow this post in the next few days with images of them getting ready, the ceremony, the reception, and some really cool and unique elements of their beachy wedding.

Meet Maria and Brad.

Maria made herself as well as each of her bridesmaids custom designed fairy wings. More on that to come in the next post!


Love her bright flowers!

What beautiful colors for the surf city wedding!

Hand in hand…


Shooting wedding portraits in full sun is always a challenge, especially on the beach, so we decided to find some shade under the trees. 😉

So much love in this photo!

Genuine smiles from Maria and Brad:)

What a good looking couple!


Maria was nothing but smiles all day! On that note, I think pretty much everyone was all smiles all day! THAT is what makes up a “perfect” wedding, in my opinion.

Gorgeous scenery and gorgeous couple!

Beachfront wedding photography is breathtaking


During the reception, we went out on top of the reception venue that overlooks the bay to shoot a few pictures during sunset. It was soooo beautiful up there!

Loving the laugher and smile from Maria… you can only imagine Brad’s happy expression:)

    Alicia, the photos are absolutely beautiful! I can’t wait to see the rest of them… My favorites? Definitely Maria looking up with her arms around Brad on the beach, the third in the series under the trees, and the final shot. Amazing… 🙂

    the expressions on their faces are totally them and the green definitely helps make all the rest of the colors pop

    fantastic job

    I think my favorites (so far) are the ones with Maria’s hand on her hip taken at the park by “Old Barney,” the LBI lighthouse.
