Intimate Beach Front Wedding in Brigantine | The McDonoughs

© 2019 Kailee DiMeglio Shields

I first met Ola & Brian while they were traveling to Charleston, SC where I photographed Brian's surprise proposal to Ola!

Check out their Historic Downtown Charleston Proposal Blog Post!

So when they reached out to inquire about their upcoming intimate wedding I was beyond thrilled! They planned a very intimate wedding on the front porch of a beach front home in Brigantine, NJ. Brian looked dapper in his blue suit and purple tie while Ola looked stunning in her wedding dress & veil. Her stepsons walked her down the short aisle & very cutely covered their eyes during Brian & Ola's first kiss (check out the photos to see if you can spot it!) They wrote their own vows and spoke about how they first met each other. It was so lovely! After they kissed, their wedding guests tossed rose petals in the air to celebrate! After the ceremony I took the happy couple for bride & groom portraits on the beach. On the short walk to the beach we made a pit stop for some photos in front of the house - unexpectedly the sprinklers came on and they had to make a run for it! haha I absoutely loved being able to continue photographing their love story. These two are the real deal and you can see it through all of their images!

Scroll through some of my favorites from their intimate beach front wedding!
