Tara & Paul or “Pauly” as I would say, had a beautiful Bonnet Island Wedding. It was one of my favorite weddings at my favorite shorepoints. Long Beach Island is one of my top places to go to. You pass this pretty awesome little venue called Bonnet Island Estate right before you get to the bay bridge. They had a cloudy fall day filled with beautiful details that they hand picked for the wedding. Tara put on her beautiful dress from Bridal Garden and we were off to photograph with the bridal party.
Ceremonies at Bonnet Island Estate are held in their rustic barn style building that is simply amazing! During the ceremony two members of the bridal party fainted. I have never witnessed anything like this but thankfully everyone was OK. The groom that fainted jokingly was announced into the reception in a wheelchair! There was a surprise special fast father/daughter dance. Tara & her father had spent quite a while on their surprise choreographed dance. Overall, it was a terrific day as I knew it would be. Another great Bonnet Island wedding. Thanks again for all the laughs and memories. I can’t wait to get their final album in!

I love the “first look” prior to the wedding. It is beautiful, private and intimate. Please contact me to learn more about this for your wedding day.
Pauly making sure the groom that fainted is okay during the ceremony.
Tara after feeling a bit faint had to sit down with some lemonade before they finished the ceremony.
Nick had a seriously funny best man’s speech.
Tara & her father had a 5 minute choreographed dance number that shocked everyone.
