Cape May’s Victorian architecture and beach charm makes it a perfect setting for a wedding getaway. The historic Congress Hotel was a beautiful backdrop for photos. The couple’s elegant but casual looks paired well with the light teal and blue tones inspired by the ocean water and the smooth sea glass used as propping for the picnic and detail shots. These detailed popped against the bold hand-painted checkerboard historic ballroom floor. 

The bride carried a bouquet with  double tulips, butterfly ranunculus, daffodil, delphinium, plus an air plant for good measure. To create her  carefree look, she was styled in bohemian blue earrings paired with her long “Celine” gown from Nicole Miller in Manayunk. A special canine guest helped with all of the photos. Our  favorite part though, just might be the fact that they took a spin on a classic old-fashioned Cape May surrey before they headed to the sand for their nuptials.
