When a professional football player married a bohemian beauty by the coast in New Jersey, it was certain that the day would be special... Kristen & Gerrard's love was effortless! On their wedding day, Kristen was a vision in her Watters gown and her eucalyptus crown. With clean whites, cool blue tones and nautical details, the day was overflowing with beachy vibes. K&G's truest smiles and tear-jerking vows made this day one of our all time favorites. We can still feel the love! ~ love & light photographs

From the Bride... Our story began 5 years prior to our dreamy wedding day down on Long Beach Island, our favorite place that houses some of our most precious memories. We met our final semester of college and hit it off from the start. Gerrard has always been the charming one from day one and his smile and laugh is my absolute favorite.

We absolutely fell in love with Bonnet Island Estate after visiting and knew it would be the perfect place 
to celebrate our big day. Bonnet fit the beachy and rustic vibe we were looking for with plenty of space to make it creative in our own way. We chose a neutral color palette of light grey, white and navy with lots of greenery and white roses throughout. Wooden signs and favorites from New Jersey and Maryland complimented our day throughout many of our details.

Having both been athletes, and most of our party being athletes as well, we of course had to make our grand entrance first as Mr. & Mrs. with a football scene. We are both big sneaker heads also, so naturally as soon as we could, we traded in heels and dress shoes for our high top vans. Let's just say our wedding parties were happy to join along with us and made the dance floor even more fun.

Our photographer, Jessa Schifilliti, captured the day perfectly with her team! We knew we were in the best hands and after talking through our vision, we let them take the wheel and do what they are best in the world at - capturing every moment of couples big days while keeping it stress free. There was so much love and laughter on our wedding day, and each photo radiates with the love and excitement we felt. She captured the dreaminess of the venue, every thoughtful detail and so many special
 moments that we continuously look back on and will cherish for the rest of our lives.
