Dana & Jeff [The Breakers on the Ocean Spring Lake, NJ Wedding Photographer]

When Dana & Jeff began planning their wedding day, it ended up looking completely different than anything they ever imagined! I’m sure Dana never thought she’d wear her wedding dress twice or that they’ve had TWO ceremonies but that is the beauty of 2020. And in a way, it is a beauty! Years from now they can look back on these past few years and reminisce that they got to celebrate their wedding day twice. Last year they officially became husband and wife in a church ceremony with their families and a few close friends. This year, all of their family and friends came to witness them exchange their vows again and dance the night away. I was lucky enough to photograph both wedding days for them and by the way, WOW, did they celebrate this year! I rarely stay the whole time at reception but this time it happened to work out for me to do so and I’m so glad I was there all night, it was one of the most fun receptions ever!! These two know how to throw an amazing party!!

There was also a silver lining to having two wedding days! Last year, they got married on a warm and sunny wedding day and took photos on the beach with the bluest skies over them. This year, it was cloudy and super windy – TOO windy for beach photos! And because we got those photos last year on the sunny beach, they didn’t mind it one bit! We did what we could and went to the park instead and now they have the best of both worlds from their wedding portraits 🙂 Their adorable ring bearer and flower girl walked down the aisle before Dana walked down once more towards Jeff and with their same priest that married them last year, they were husband and wife – again! The reception was SO fun, I can’t stress it enough! Dana changed out of her gown into a white jumpsuit to dance comfortably all night long and even did the worm!! I mean, pay attention to the face of their guests as she did it. We were all blown away! lol It was such a memorable day and night and I’m so thrilled to share my favorite images from their day with you all!! 🙂
