Just an intimate affair

While some people dream of a wedding surrounded by 250-300 of their nearest and dearest (and maybe a few of their not so near and dear), many couples today are deciding to go with a smaller more intimate affair.

For my latest styled shoot, I chose a location that would reflect the desires of this unique couple. The Gables, a beautifully restored Victorian Inn located in Beach Haven, NJ, is a gem on Long Beach Island (LBI). It offers the perfect vibe for the couple who wants more of an elopement feel to their day.

Last summer, I walked past the Inn on a date-night with my loving husband. The gas lanterns flickered and the porch was abuzz with guests enjoying their dinner, and I swear, I closed my eyes and the roaring 20s came to life in front of me. It's truly a site to see.

When Jewels from Lvly Photography reached out to me to plan a styled shoot for her, I knew this was the place. I discussed my vision for a vintage elopement and got to work. Check out the highlight reel. Magic happened... I felt like Gatsby himself would show up at any minute, especially when our model slipped out of her perfectly sequined, fit & flare Justin Alexander (from Bridal Suite Boutique) and into her flapperesque after-party outfit!
