Love has a beautiful way of intertwining with the rhythm of the ocean, and Nick and Ashlee’s Beach Surf Wedding in Ocean City, New Jersey was a symphony of timeless romance, boho vibes, and the invigorating spirit of surf culture. As a wedding photographer privileged to capture their special day, I am thrilled to share the enchanting story of Nick and Ashlee.
I had the pleasure of photographing Nick and Ashlee’s engagement session on the sandy shores, a precursor to the breathtaking love story that unfolded on their wedding day. Read it here!
Surfing into the Wedding Day
Nick and Ashlee’s love for surfing and ocean vibes transported everyone to a coastal paradise. The day began with Nick and his buddies catching morning waves, the excitement palpable as the anticipation for the afternoon swells grew.
Getting Ready: Homes Filled with Love
Nick and Ashlee got ready in the comfort of their parents’ homes, creating a warm and intimate atmosphere that set the tone for the day. The proximity to the beach added a touch of familiarity, making the drive to Corson’s Inlet for their private first look, vows, and couples photos all the more meaningful.
Furry friends add a special touch to any celebration, and their dog, Maisee, played a pivotal role in making the day even more memorable. With paws in the sand and a wagging tail, Maisee joined the festivities, spreading joy and love.
A Beach Ceremony to Remember
Before the ceremony, Ashlee’s dad offered a heartfelt prayer, infusing the air with sentiment. After a touching and sweet ceremony, the wedding party, buzzing with excitement, hopped onto the party bus en route to the reception, officially kicking off the celebration.
Mocktails, Cocktails, and Conversation
The reception at the Everly, I coined “Mocktails, Cocktails, and Conversation,” was a testament to the couple’s commitment to creating a space for love, laughter, and unforgettable moments. The dance floor came alive with the rhythm of joy, and the air was filled with the sounds of celebration as friends and family toasted to the newlyweds.
The night unfolded into a whirlwind of dancing, laughter, and heartfelt conversations. Nick and Ashlee’s wedding was not just an event; it was a celebration of the enduring bond between two souls, surrounded by the love of those closest to them.
As I reflect on Nick and Ashlee’s Beach Surf Wedding, I am reminded that true love is a timeless journey, made even more magical when shared with the ones who matter most. Here’s to a lifetime of waves, love, and countless celebrations for Nick and Ashlee. May their love story continue to unfold in the most beautiful and unexpected ways.
