Joe + Kelly, Bonnet Island wedding photographer

You might think that there was nothing extraordinarily challenging about shooting a wedding for a couple as good looking as Joe Wicklander & Kelly Hameline at a location as beautiful as Bonnet Island Estate in Long Beach Island, NJ. Well, if it were any other wedding, you might have been right but this was no ordinary wedding. You see, the brides father, the head coach for the Wagner University football team had postponed a scheduled game in order to attend his daughter’s wedding. This was big news in the sports world and so a network TV station was doing a story on it on the day of the wedding and so, in addition to our usual duties as wedding photographers, we had about a 1/2 hour window to take a nice family photo, download it, retouch it and upload it to the network so they could show the photo on a Jumbotron at a game and include a shot of the Jumbotron in their live broadcast! No pressure there right! : ) Then in the middle of family photos, we all took a break to run in and watch the broadcast on TV, with Liz and I sweating bullets, hoping that the photo had gone through. And… wait for it… touchdown! Maybe even an extra point… : ) Once the network news part of the day was over, Liz and I could settle in and do what we do best, which was to document this beautiful wedding at that spectacular location! Joe & Kelly had both gotten ready right there at Bonnet Island which is always a great idea if you want to keep your wedding day simple and relaxing. They had a sweet first look down on the dock and then did all of their family photos before the ceremony. When Joe & Kelly’s sweet ceremony was over, we did a giant group shot of ALL the guests on the terrace and it was off to the party. Miss!on Dance rocked the house once again, as they do so very well… Thanks so much to the staff at Bonnet Island for being so good to us and most of all; BIG thanks to the Hameline and Wicklander families for giving us the opportunity to share in this important family day!02mckay_wicklander103bonnet-island-1_mckay-imaging04bonnet-island-8_mckay-imaging05bonnet-island-5_mckay-imaging06bonnet-island-6_mckay-imaging07mckay_wicklander708bonnet-island-9_mckay-imaging09bonnet-island-11_mckay-imaging10bonnet-island-2_mckay-imaging11bonnet-island-12_mckay-imaging12bonnet-island-4_mckay-imaging13bonnet-island-3_mckay-imaging14mckay_wicklander215bonnet-island-7_mckay-imaging16bonnet-island-10_mckay-imaging17bonnet-island-groom_mckay-imaging18bonnet-island-13_mckay-imaging19bonnet-island-14_mckay-imaging20bonnet-island-17_mckay-imaging21bonnet-island-15_mckay-imaging22bonnet-island-18_mckay-imaging23mckay_wicklander524mckay_wicklander325bonnet-island-16_mckay-imaging26grooms-men_mckay-imagingmckay_bonnet-island-nbc-27bonnet-island-ceremony-1_mckay-imaging28bonnet-island-ceremony-12_mckay-imaging29bonnet-island-ceremony-2_mckay-imaging30mckay_wicklander631bonnet-island-ceremony-4_mckay-imaging32bonnet-island-ceremony-3_mckay-imaging33bonnet-island-ceremony-5_mckay-imaging34bonnet-island-ceremony-8_mckay-imaging35bonnet-island-ceremony-6_mckay-imaging36bonnet-island-ceremony-9_mckay-imaging37bonnet-island-ceremony-10_mckay-imagingmckay_bonnet-island-group-38mckay_wicklander439bonnet-island-portrait-1_mckay-imaging40bonnet-island-portrait-4_mckay-imaging41bonnet-island-portrait-2_mckay-imaging42bonnet-island-estate-details_mckay43bonnet-island-wedding-1_mckay-imaging44bonnet-island-wedding-2_mckay-imaging45bonnet-island-wedding-4_mckay-imaging46bonnet-island-wedding-3_mckay-imaging47bonnet-island-wedding-8_mckay-imaging48bonnet-island-wedding-10_mckay-imaging49bonnet-island-wedding-6_mckay-imaging50bonnet-island-wedding-9_mckay-imaging51bonnet-island-wedding-7_mckay-imaging52bonnet-island-wedding-12_mckay-imaging53bonnet-island-wedding-13_mckay-imaging54bonnet-island-sunset_mckay-imaging Ceremony + Reception – Bonnet Island Estate, Manhawkin Event Planning + Catering – Merri Makers Flowers – MDS Floral Design Wedding Invitation – Spilled Ink Press, Chicago Wedding Cake – Bake Works Ceremony Music – La Mer Ensembles Reception Entertainment – Mission Dance Wedding Dress – Augustua Jones Bridesmaids Dresses – Jenny Yoo Make-Up – Deanna Lewis Hair – Picture Perfect Wedding Hair ]]>
