xenia & aaron | molly pitcher inn | wedding

xenia and aaron’s molly pitcher inn wedding at the new jersey shore was a long time coming. we originally met when i was still pregnant with my daughter who is now a walking, talking big personality.  xenia has faithfully followed me on social media awaiting her turn and now it’s finally here!

lovers of the beach, i photographed their engagement session at the new jersey shore as well.  unfortunately, the seagulls i hired for that shoot went on strike so they weren’t available for xen and aaron’s wedding day.
