Jersey Shore Wedding Photography | Kim & Matt's Stone Harbor Wedding

Stone Harbor Wedding Photography by the Bay• Posted by Natalie •

This past September included a real treat as we got to spend a beautiful late summer day at the Jersey Shore for Kim & Matt's wedding at the newly-opened boutique hotel The Reeds at Shelter Haven. Stone Harbor is a second home for Kim & her family so choosing this new venue with a private ceremony site overlooking the bay was a no-brainer.

I love visiting the Jersey Shore in September when the weather is still nice, but the crush of tourists has relented. Everything fell into place for a truly picture-perfect day. The First Look on the beach was nearly private despite the warm day. Matt and Kim got to show off their awesome dip with a wide-open swath of beach behind them.

The bridesmaids were dressed in coral, floor-length gowns, and even the freshly-decorated hotel room seemed to coordinate with the wedding. The reception in the Sweet Grass Ballroom at The Reeds kept people on their feet dancing to the live band or outside enjoying the music and watching the sunset over the bay on attached patio.

Matt & Kim, Everything about your day was just lovely from start to finish.  Thanks for making us feel like part of the family!
