[Wedding] Jen & Justin – Ocean Place in Long Branch, NJ

One of the things I love about our new place (if 2 years can still be considered “new”) is how close we are to the Jersey Shore. While it’s arguable that 45 minutes isn’t necessarily “that” close, it’s pretty darn close to a life-long suburbanite like yours truly!  We first met Jen & Justin at another wedding several years ago, and I can’t believe how much time has flown by. When they first reached out and told us they were having a beach wedding in Long Branch (that was sorta, kinda close to us), I was beyond elated. It was the perfect weekend for a Jersey shore wedding; after the summer tourist crowds had gone home, leaving most of the beatiful beachfront for Jen, Justin and their guests to enjoy! We loved all the unique details that Jen & Justin incorporated into their wedding day, from the groom’s diabolically awesome socks, to the reception decor, down to the satchel of ladybugs for all the guests for the ceremony.
