Allison & Kevin's Wedding Film | Long Beach Island New Jersey

Allison & Kevin's Wedding Film | Long Beach Island New Jersey Featured Image

Long Beach Island played a lot more of a part in Allison and Kevin’s story than just the location of their wedding. Both of their families vacationed on the island annually, spending time at homes just a few blocks apart. Though they grew up going to the same beach at the same time of year, they never met, though their paths undoubtedly crossed. They finally met through mutual friends after having both relocated to Tampa Florida.

Kevin owns a bike shop in Florida, called City Bike Tampa. With his love and talent for building custom bikes, Kevin decided to surprise Allison with a gorgeous one of a kind tandem cruiser. Every component of the bike was carefully selected and assembeled. Kevin even went so far as having the frame shipped to a talented artist—Allison’s Mother, to have it hand painted. Allison was completely surprised and blown away by the gift, Kevin presented to her as they exited the beach following their ceremony. The entire bridal party tailed them as they rode off and guests headed to the reception.

The Boathouse Restaurant, located on the bay side of the island, was the perfect spot for the reception. The bride and groom rode up to the entrances on their tandem, followed by the bridesmaids and groomsmen. The sun was setting over the water as the couple entered and enjoyed their first dance as husband and wife. The party was rocked by Steve from Sound Choice DJs and everyone danced the night away! Their wedding day was also Allison’s brother Zak and cousin Lisa’s birthday, so immediately following the cake cutting, they surprised them with a birthday cake and everyone sang Happy Birthday!

In addition to all that awesomeness, we had the opportunity to capture their story alongside our friends at Jordan Bush Photography - Jordan Bush and Matt Jordan. These two incredibly talented artists used 35mm and Medium Format film to parallel their digital capture of Allison and Kevin’s story. Links to these individual albums can be found after the break. We were honored to capture and tell such an incredible love story and we hope you enjoy watching it!
