On June 30th 2012, while our very talented associate photographer Sara was photographing a wedding for us in Locust, NJ, we were busy spending the day with another couple, Elizabeth DuBois and Steven Reinfurt in Spring Lake, New Jersey. Liz and I have been photographing weddings for 18 years now and it always amazes us when we work at a venue in our area that we had not worked at before that day. On this day, it was The Spring Lake Golf Club. Where has this place been all out lives?! As it turns out, Liz and Steve really know how to throw a party and the golf club was the perfect venue for their event.
We love when an entire wedding takes place in one perfect location. Not only is it easier on us but the guests love it too because they don’t have to travel from place to place; and the journey from the ceremony to the cocktail hour is only a couple of steps! Yahoo! Liz and Steve very considerately provided this very simple kind of day for their friends and family. Good work!
The Spring Lake Golf Club has this really large, attractive room for the bride and her girls to get ready in. Steve and Liz had opted for a “reveal” in which they saw each other for the first time in a fleeting, tender moment before the ceremony. Then, as I said, off we went to the lake for photos and when we got back, having been greeted at the door with fresh lemonade, iced tea and spirits, the girls settled into this very lovely room and hid away in comfort while the guys stood along the entrance path and greeted the guests.
The ceremony beneath the club’s tented patio was short and sweet and once the happy couple were hitched, well… the natives were ready to rumble! They would not be disappointed. The food was delicious, the weather cooled nicely so people could enjoy the beautiful views that the club’s patio provides and one of our favorite bands, “Mission Dance” rocked them, all-night-long!.
Thanks so much to both families for many memorable moments and for entrusting us to capture them for you. We had a great time and love the way the pictures turned out! Thanks as well for introducing us to the beautiful Spring Lake Golf Club. We can’t wait to see what other Monmouth County gems the future may have in store for us!
