Grand Hotel Cape May Wedding Photography – Sarah and Tim

Grand Hotel Cape May Wedding Photography by Michael Chadwick. After over two hundred weddings, you might think things can get pretty mundane and redundant. Nothing could be farther from the truth. Sometimes, you get quite an adventurous wedding. This was one of them. In the days leading up to this January 23rd wedding, everyone was watching the weather report. A blizzard was coming. Not just some ordinary little snow storm, but a full-on blizzard with an actual name attached to the storm. The original venue had cancelled on them, but the hotel where they were staying picked up the ball and ran with it. The day before the wedding, Tim emailed me and asked if I would be okay with coming a day early in order to ensure I would be there. Of course I said yes. It’s a good thing I did.

As I was driving down the Garden State Parkway the evening of the 22nd, the storm hit. Complete white out. Normally, from where I was, it would have taken me ten minutes to get to the hotel. It took me almost two hours. I finally arrived and stayed the night, wondering if there would even be a wedding. The next morning, I spoke to Sarah and Tim, and everything was a go thanks to the amazing staff at Grand Hotel Cape May. I cannot say enough positive things about how they took care not only of the couple and their guests, but even the vendors. With a blizzard and flooding bearing down on everyone, they made sure everyone was comfortable, well fed, and having a great time.

We started the day with some portraits, then had a ceremony followed by a lovely reception full of plenty of wonderful speeches, dancing, and general carrying on. It was a celebration that defied the weather, a wedding that was going to happen no matter what the elements threw at them. The love and joy Sarah and Tim had filled the gloomy day with light and laughter. I am so glad I got to be a part of their wedding adventure and wish them all the happiness in the world!
