Matt and Emily's wedding day

Hello and Happy September! I am so happy to be back on the blog today sharing the gorgeous day that Matt and Emily shared on September 1st 2018. Matt is my first cousin, my dad’s sister’s son. It’s always so special to be part of any wedding day, it’s extra special when it’s a family member getting married! I’ve watched Matt and Emily fall in love the past few years- Matt and Emily met in Australia when Matt was studying abroad there a few years back. After lots of phone calls and some back and forth trips, Emily moved here to the USA. It’s been so wonderful getting to know her, and am so happy that she is now part of our family!

Matt and Emily chose to get married at the Jersey Shore, as it’s a very special place to both Matt and now Emily! My Grandparents had a home in Stone Harbor as we were growing up, and summers were spent here by so many of our cousins. Matt and his sibs worked and played most summers at the shore. Our grandparents have since passed away, but Matt had the brilliant idea of taking a wedding picture at our Grandparents house. It was so cool to be there again.

Matt and Emily got married in Avalon at the Sacred Heart Church. We took pictures in Stone Harbor from there, and then headed to Atlantic City Country Club for the reception. Getting ready for the wedding all took place at the country club. Special shout out to Springer’s ice cream in Stone Harbor for letting Matt and Em jump the ( always) long line and get a couple of wedding day cones and some pictures there! If you’ve never been to Springers, you have to go. It’s the best ice cream ever! The weather on the wedding day gorgeous, overcast in the morning, that turned in to the most beautiful blue sky, gorgeous sunset kind of day. Just lovely.

Matt and Emily’s wedding was super rad because of the following folks:
