Laura and Nico were married on April 27th, 2014 in Belmar, NJ. They had a gorgeous beach ceremony not far from Asbury Park, and a beautiful reception at Doolan's Shore Club in Spring Lake Heights. They live in North Carolina where Nico serves in the Marines, but they came back to NJ to celebrate their marriage with their family and friends.
They all got ready in their rooms at Doolan's Shore Club.
The anklet Laura wore was a gift from Egypt that her father gave her mother when they were young. When they were ready, everyone met in the gorgeous lobby before heading down to the beach. All of the guys wore special socks (you'll see them later), but I liked this little man's socks the best!
The day could not have been more perfect! This is a good example of why you might want to upgrade to a second photographer. Sometimes it's nice to get the first kiss from behind so that all of their family can be in the picture, but although we spoke with the officiant about moving over at the kiss before the ceremony, he must have forgotten. Things don't always happen exactly as planned (That's what makes it exciting right!), but a second photographer could have gotten an alternate view from the other side. I've never seen this before, but what a perfect beachy exit! Then it was back to Doolan's for their sweet and fun reception! The socks! Congratulations Laura and Nico! And best wishes for a long and happy life together.
