The Post Chapel at Sandy Hook Wedding | Rebeccah & Chris


From the day I met Rebeccah and Chris I could instantly see the love they had for each other. They’re one of the sweetest couples I have ever met and I really enjoyed capturing them throughout their wedding process. We had a great time during their engagement session so I was really excited for their wedding day! Their wedding took place in April at the Post Chapel in Sandy Hook, NJ. It was a beautiful day and the perfect weather for an outdoor ceremony overlooking the beach. 

Below are a few of my favorites from this beautiful wedding day! Enjoy!

The day started off with me photographing Rebeccah's details. When I saw her BHLDN gown, all I could think of was how beautiful this dress was going to flow in the wind. Rebeccah is a classically trained ballerina and I also couldn't help but envision how amazing this dress would look with pointe shoes.

Little did I know, she was planning to wear her pointe shoes all along. To say that I was excited was an understatement! I'm obsessed with dance and I love photographing dancers. I've always wanted to photograph a real life ballerina bride on her wedding day.

Anchor's were an important part of their wedding day theme. I loved this pocket watch. It is so unique. A huge thanks to my friend Ash for capturing the guys getting ready.

Chris actually proposed to Rebeccah on this beach. So it was pretty special to have their wedding photos taken there as well.

How beautiful is this dress!? It was made for a ballerina!


Their reception was so much fun. All of the guests participated in a large Swedish dance to celebrate with the Bride and Groom. It was so fun to watch.  


Rebeccah and Chris, thank you so much for allowing me to capture your beautiful Wedding day! I wish you all the happiness in the world.
