Katie & Casey’s November wedding at The Reeds at Shelter Haven was truly breathtaking! We know we’ve said it before, but this Stone Harbor wedding venue is one of our all-time favorites. We’ve been lucky enough to photograph quite a few NJ coastal weddings here over the past few years. The Reeds At Shelter Haven management is just the best!
Katie & Casey’s Stone Harbor wedding was so special! One look at Katie’s bouquet by The Manic Botanic will have you speechless, and her gorgeous refined, boho wedding gown by Willowby by Watters was the perfect choice for this warm Fall day. Their day started by getting ready in the gorgeous Reeds at Shelter Haven rooms and the couple had their first look on the dock overlooking the bay. The colorful blooms absolutely popped in front of the neutral water! Their timeless portraits took place at a sanctuary just down the road, giving their photos a coastal but unique feel. The wedding reception details in The Reeds ballroom, by Dear Darling Design Studio, fit Katie & Casey’s personalities perfectly and the lunar cake topper by AULDMOON was the “icing on the cake.” Scroll to see more of the magic!
