Clarks Landing Yacht Club: The Wedding of Samantha & Robert

We love the gorgeous engagement ring and wedding bands nestled in soft pink roses. They're complimented by the diamond earrings against a mossy green background, and the moodiness of a backlit wedding gown.

Time to get ready! The bride has a laugh with her girls and a cuddle with her pup.

Getting the bride ready to go is always a team effort. Her hair was perfect, and the silhouette shows the delicate pieces left to hang free.

Blinds can create such interesting light and patterns for portraits. Love when it works out!

The bride enters on her father's arm. We love catching the moment when he looks over adoringly, and if we can, catching the groom between their shoulders as he takes it all in.

The ceremony took place at the Kingdom Hall of Jehovah's Witnesses at 1115 W. Whitty Rd, Toms River, NJ 08755. It was different from the typical wedding ceremonies we see in that the guests followed along reading the scripture from a combination of traditional bibles and apps on their phones or tablets. There were certainly serious moments of quiet reflection, but also moments of laughter and joy.

The cocktail hour was due to open in mere minutes, but the light here was too gorgeous to pass up. We asked them to hold the doors for just a few more moments so we could take these super fast portraits of the bride. #worthit

Clarks Landing Yacht Club has the most amazing food. Their cocktail hour is epic. In our humble opinion, the true mark of a fine establishment is when they cut the grapes into small clusters so you can just pick up a little group of them and go on your merry way. This is superior to standing there and trying to rip off a branch, looking like a fool and holding up the line. Thank you, Clarks Landing, for making eating grapes so easy.

Wedding days are tough on everyone! Can't blame the kiddo for needing a nap before the reception gets going.

Did we mention yet how great the food is at Clarks Landing? Look at that darling fruit cup! The cake is nothing to sneeze at either. Loving the beautiful, simple elegance of it.

The doors open to reveal the bride and groom, and then they begin their first dance. The fog is such an awesome touch!

We took this portrait super quickly, right after the first dances ended. The bride stood next to the sweetheart table, followed our quick posing directions, and then was able to continue enjoying the evening. Like we said, the view from the reception room at Clarks Landing Yacht Club is killer.

We ducked out for some quick sunset shots. You can't help it when the sky is that gorgeous.
