Gabriella always knew that she wanted to get married on the beach and David was all for making that dream a reality. These two selected The Flanders Hotel in Ocean City, NJ for their seaside nuptials this past May. The weather forecasts this wedding season have successfully played tricks on almost all of my sweet couples. Most weekends we see rain projected but thankfully have had the best luck with beautiful weather! It rained in the morning prior to Gabriella and David’s ceremony but they made the decision to get married by the ocean regardless and it was the BEST decision! The clouds parted, the sun shone down on them and in the distance there was a beautiful rainbow! It was honestly one of the most stunning sights I have ever witnessed at a wedding.
Gabriella’s father performed the ceremony in which the couple exchanged rings, vows and Gabriella even sung a song for her groom! It was absolutely beautiful- there was not a dry eye in the crowd. After sharing a kiss these two came back down the aisle and took off down the beach to share a moment together. It was so beautiful. The new Mr. & Mrs. headed back to the Flanders Hotel with their guests to enjoy cocktail hour. Soon it was time for the reception to begin and these two were introduced into their first dance and let’s just say they killed it! After parent dances the group sat down to a lovely dinner. There was a brief intermission outside when a smoke alarm in the building accidentally went off but this group made the most of it and danced their way into the streets of Ocean City! Soon we were back inside enjoying the dance floor and snacking on Manco & Manco’s pizza! This was such a fun day for this amazing couple! Enjoy!
