Ocean City NJ Wedding Photography – Megan and Jim

Ocean City NJ Wedding Photography by Michael Chadwick

I was thrilled to provide Ocean City NJ Wedding Photography services to Megan and Jim, especially after spending such a fun time shooting their engagement session with them. They had an amazing celebration full of fun and energetic friends and family. Megan and Jim are both teachers in South Jersey. They live in Ocean City and work over the summer on the Boardwalk. Jim works at Manco and Manco’s Pizza and Megan works at Pirate Island Golf Course. They love just hanging out and enjoying each other’s company, taking bike rides and enjoying the beach together. Throughout their planning process, they were looking forward to celebrating their union with their beloved family and friends, dancing the night away at the spectacular Flanders Hotel.

Megan and the ladies had their hair and makeup done by Escape Beauty Salon, and they looked amazing. Megan looked absolutely beautiful in her gown from Dress 2 Impress in Linwood, and Betina’s at Parkview (one of my highly recommended vendors) did their typical outstanding job with her bouquet and the other floral arrangements. Once the ladies were all ready, they boarded their classic New Jersey shore trolley and headed to Our Lady of Good Counsel in Ocean City. They had a beautiful ceremony, and once the nuptials were done, we all walked over to the beach for some quick portraits. After nearly 300 weddings worth of experience, I finally had my first falling-down-while-walking-backwards episode, but thankfully it was into a sand dune and neither my or my equipment were harmed. Unfortunately, I was digging burrs out of my clothes the rest of the day!

After the beach shots were done, we headed over to The Flanders Hotel and took some photographs on the busy Boardwalk. Then, it was time to party! The Flanders Hotel does an amazing cocktail hour, and all the guests enjoyed the delicious food and drink. Once the reception was set to begin, the wedding party came in with some pretty creative entrances, and Megan and Jim enjoyed a lovely first dance. Blue Dolfin Sweets (another recommended vendor) provided a beautiful cake and a fantastic variety of cupcakes for everyone to enjoy. Over the Top Entertainment did a great job keeping everyone dancing (as if they needed any help!) and I enjoyed working in tandem with Sea Isle Films who provided cinematography services.

Congratulations, Megan and Jim! I had a wonderful time with all of you, and I look forward to seeing you at the beach!
