I have been so excited to blog about Ryan and Taylor’s wedding. I have known Ryan since middle school, and was truly honored when Taylor reached out to me about photographing their wedding day. They are both just genuinely wonderful people and amazing parents. Over the last few years, I have been able to photograph their engagement session, maternity and now wedding day! Their New Jersey wedding at the Yacht Club of Sea Isle City was a dream come true.
The Yacht Club of Sea Isle City (YCSIC for short) is a New Jersey wedding venue located on the bay in Sea Isle City, New Jersey. This beautiful wedding venue not only gives you stunning water views, but you also have access to the beach for some gorgeous beach portraits. The management team at The Yacht Club of Sea Isle City offers a one-of-a-kind wedding experience, to really make this the wedding of your dreams.
Included with your packages at YCSIC, you also have access to their event coordinator. Their event coordinator is there to assist you in making specific arrangements throughout your wedding planning process. In turn, this essentially makes for the easiest, wedding planning process for your special day. The Yacht Club of Sea Isle City gives every couple a chance to live out their dream wedding exactly how they want it.

The AKP team arrived at the venue on the morning of November 5th. While we were expecting a brisk Fall day, it was actually a rare warmer day for early November, 70 degrees! While I (Andrea) was with Taylor and her bridesmaids getting ready, our second photographer Laura was with Ryan and his groomsmen. Second photographers change the game on your wedding day. Which is why AKP includes it in all of our wedding packages 😉
Ryan spent the morning getting ready with this groomsmen, Father and adorable son, SJ. Before we knew it, Taylor slipped on her dress and had her final hair & makeup touches, thanks to Lauren Ashley Salon & AMG Beauty Bar.
More often than not, couples who are having their wedding ceremony off site typically do not do a first look. Logistically, this makes sense as usually there are separate getting ready locations.
Even though Taylor and Ryan chose not to have a first look, Taylor still wanted to share this time with her father and her bridesmaids. First, she had a first look with her dad and then with her bridesmaids. Both incredibly beautiful moments that I know she will remember forever.
Next, we all gathered up ourselves and made our way to St. Joseph’s Church in Sea Isle for the ceremony. Woohoo, the moment we have all been anticipating! In a gorgeous church ceremony, Taylor and Ryan said their vows and became husband and wife.
About 2 blocks from the church are direct access to the beach. Of course, we had to utilize this to get some stunning beach wedding portraits. First with Taylor and Ryan’s wedding party and then some solo portraits of the newlyweds.
Thankfully, YCSIC is only minutes away from the beach and St. Joseph’s church so quickly we were back for cocktail hour, golden hour portraits, and reception! Now one thing you should know about Taylor and Ryan is that they are a fun bunch. Everyone at their wedding sure knows how to party and that’s a guarantee. So pretty much the night was spent with a whole lot of dancing, eating good food, and even an outfit change for Taylor.
Cheers to Taylor and Ryan and the happily ever after for their future!
