When it came to choosing a wedding venue for Jenny and Adam's wedding day, they led with the heart.  Jenny vacationed with her family each summer on the Long Island Shore of New Jersey, making the Mallard Island Yacht Club the perfect destination for their celebration!  The bride's sister commissioned Ben to create a live wedding painting on behalf of their family as a surprise wedding gift!  As we were planning for the painting, it only made sense for Ben to capture the ceremony with the breathtaking seaside view surrounding them.  A view that for years, has meant so much to their family.  And breathtaking it was indeed!  Meghan of Kyle Michelle Weddings designed and coordinated the day with absolute perfection.  We were absolutely smitten over all the details from the custom signage they designed to the creative potted succulents gifted to each guest.  The ceremony was full of lush greenery and florals by MDS Floral Design ... and we are still in awe of their Chuppah!  Joshua Zuckerman and Tweed Video were also part of the vendor team, capturing the gorgeous day!  Ben is so happy to share Jenny and Adam's finished live wedding!
