Julia is elegant, sophisticated and wise beyond her years– Max is the perfect gentleman, friendly, kind and completely head over heels in love with Julia. Ladies preparations were at Julia’s parent’s beautiful summer home in Spring Lake, the ceremony was in the Spring Lake Episcopal Church (Church of the Holy Trinity) and the reception was at the Spring Lake Bath and Tennis Club (affectionately called the B&T). The day was sunny with a nice breeze– we were able to even walk along the sand of the beach and enjoy the sea. Their bridal party consisted of their 4 closest friends, one of whom was Julia’s cousin who had spent summers at Spring Lake watching brides walk to the lake for their wedding photos, daydreaming of their own weddings. Their bridal party, friends and family were absolutely charming, thoughtful and totally ready to have a laugh or get down on the dance floor.
Daddy’s little girl…
Max is ready for the “first look”
I LOVE this image… it captures the timeless, classic nature of this couple so perfectly!
Max literally carried Julia all over Spring Lake, it was adorable:

teehee some fun with the bridal party on the beach 😉
Cocktail hour at the Bath and Tennis Club provided a view of the stunning saltwater olympic-sized pool (above) or the ocean (below)
The speeches were beautiful and heartfelt, below Max & Julia tear up at her cousin’s speech about watching brides in Spring Lake together as children:
The owners of Above and Beyond Entertainment really got the party started… I told you the guests were ready to dance!
Haha, love the expressions in these bouquet toss photos 🙂
