their wedding day: Barnegat Lighthouse & Parker’s Garage, Long Beach Island

This stunning summer beach wedding day was such a dream from the gorgeous sunny day to the soft blush color palette. Their ceremony at the Barnegat Lighthouse right on the beach was intimate and romantic, and Parker’s Garage was the perfect open-air reception space to celebrate! We caught the sweetest moments between Katie’s bridesmaid’s crying the moment they saw her in her dress to sunset slow dancing and kisses looking over the water. I was lucky enough to assist my friend, Jennifer Larsen, for this coastal chic wedding day – it was a blast from beginning to end! You can view their full wedding day blog post by Jen here!

their love story:

Here’s a sweet snippet of how these two met from Jen’s blog post:

Katie and Kyle met in college at a party in early 2009. When Katie met Kyle, she said:

“Maybe it was liquid courage but I proceeded to take his Phillies hat off of his head and told him it looked better on me, which he said he couldn’t argue. I told him I was a huge Phillies fan because I’m from Pennsylvania and he asked who my favorite player was. I said “all of them” and he knew I had no clue who a single person was on that team! I ended up going back the next night, hoping he would be there, which he was. By Sunday night, I was on the phone with my mom asking her what I should do because I really liked Kyle. Kyle also called his mom to ask for her advice because he really liked me, too.”

How adorable are they?! More about their love story and proposal over on Jen’s full post!
