Brant Beach Yacht Club Wedding :: Emily and Michael

Emily and Michael’s Brant Beach Yacht Club Wedding was absolutely adorable!  From the simple, creative, nautical details to including their beloved pups in the wedding ceremony, I loved capturing their big day on Long Beach Island!

The day began with beautiful beach weather and the bride and her girls dressed in coordinating nautical themed tank tops. As the day moved on, Emily changed into her stunning Mikaella wedding gown – perfect for a wedding down the shore! While Emily was getting ready with her girls, and under the watchful eye of the couples’ two pups, Michael was getting himself ready in a Banana Republic suit and nautical anchor cuff links.

After they said their vows, Emily and Michael had a ton of fun with their family and friends inside the Brant Beach Yacht Club, overlooking the beach and ocean. This amazing venue gave us the opportunity to venture outside onto the sand to capture the gorgeous couple in front of one of the most amazing sunset’s I have ever seen at a wedding!

Thank you Emily and Michael for including me in your big day! I am beyond honored to have been able to capture your love for each other (and your pups) and I can’t wait to see what your future holds!

We met in high school. We actually didn’t like each other at all at first, but then became friends and realized how much we got along and had in common.


Mike’s reaction to seeing his bride on their wedding day was truly priceless – he was BLOWN away by how gorgeous she looked!

Michael’s favorite memory was the first look. My favorite memory is being surrounded by everyone we love.

We wanted a venue that wasn’t your “run of the mill” wedding venue. We wanted to be able to personalize it to our taste, and have a really relaxed environment.

We also wanted to be on the water, since that’s where our love began and is a love we share.

Our theme was incorporating our favorite things, with the basis being nautical. We incorporated details. Our colors were navy, pearl pink and white with gold accents. We wanted a relaxed, beach-y vibe.

Don’t get caught up in all of the options, Pinterest ideas, and what everyone else tells you. At the end of the day, what really matters is that you’re marrying your best friend. But… good food , drinks and music is important too!
