DEAUVILLE INN WEDDING
DEAUVILLE INN WEDDING: HEATHER & HUGO
Deauville Inn Wedding
When Heather and Hugo approached us at J&J Studios to do their wedding photoshoot, we were excited. Their wedding was going to be held at Deauville Inn. The theme of the wedding was to be something beautiful, elegant, and timeless. It was our job to create a series of photos that would capture the essence of this couple’s love and personality. We wanted to express their love for each other.
The weather was gorgeous, and the scenery around us was unlike anything we’d ever seen. We’re so glad that we took the opportunity to visit Deauville Inn and help capture Heather and Hugo’s special day on film. All of our excitement certainly paid off. We have some truly stunning pictures of this happy couple that will be a treasure for them to pass down through the generations!
DEAUVILLE INN WEDDING VENUE
In the pantheon of wedding venues, the Deauville Inn is a diamond in the rough. Located in a quiet little corner of New Jersey, Willard RD, Strathmere. It is almost surprising to walk up to it and see what an absolutely gorgeous place it is. It has been recently renovated and maintains a fresh, relaxed atmosphere making it the perfect location for your dream wedding.
Its pristine white architecture and lush gardens are as tasteful and understated as any we have ever seen, and its wonderful staff (including the owners) really know how to make your wedding day everything you want it to be. It’s located just steps from the sand, where you can take a moment to pause and watch the waves crash onto the shore. But it’s not just the setting that makes Deauville Inn special—it’s also the staff. From start to finish, they’re a delight to work with. The people who work there are patient, helpful, and friendly. If you’re looking for a venue that provides top-notch service during your wedding planning process, this is an excellent choice.
MEET THE BRIDE AND GROOM: HEATHER & HUGO
Heather and Hugo were awesome to work with during their wedding photoshoot. They have a great dynamic which made them fun to shoot. The couple also knew exactly what they wanted, making the whole process much smoother. They are so natural in front of the camera and so obviously in love with each other. We could tell that these pictures were going to be great.
Brief text: Heather and Hugo are a beautiful couple, and their wedding was an absolutely stunning event. The flowers, the décor, the cake—everything came together beautifully and was so elegant and lovely.
GETTING THE PARTY STARTED
When we arrived, the bride, groom, and close family members were all getting ready in their Airbnb. However, as we’ve seen from experience, it can take a while for people to start opening up and letting us take pictures. Especially when they’re all in different rooms!
So we spent some time wandering around the space, looking for shots that would capture. Both the details of their outfits and the overall atmosphere of their preparations. We wanted some candid moments where the groups were hanging out together but otherwise wanted to capture moments separately before they came together.
DEAUVILLE INN WEDDING CEREMONY
After the family formal photo shoot, we headed to the wedding ceremony at Deauville Inn. We got shots of the bridal party entering and exiting the chapel, the couple sharing their first kiss as a married couple, and the family and friends.
It was a beautiful day, overcast and breezy on the beach of Deauville Inn, overlooking Jersey Shore. The sky was a gorgeous shade of blue, and Heather’s dress looked stunning. Her bridesmaids were all wearing black dresses with white sashes. The groomsmen rocked black tuxedos with white shirts and black ties. Hugo’s hair looked perfect, he had it slicked back and his beard trimmed nicely. Heather& Hugo stood in front of their favorite picture from when they first met each other, which was taken on the beach of Jersey Shore!
The officiant did a great job of helping keep everyone relaxed for the ceremony. The bridesmaids giggled and no one made any noise while they exchanged their vows. They used personal vows written by themselves at the beginning of their relationship.
DEAUVILLE INN WEDDING RECEPTION
Heather and Hugo’s wedding reception on the beach at Deauville Inn was everything a wedding should be after the ceremony. The first dance was a huge hit, the speeches were touching and well-received, the food was delicious, and the cake was gorgeous. The Deauville Inn on the beach was an amazing location for a wedding reception. The venue had many things to offer; a large dance floor, a huge deck with a pool table and outdoor bar, and a gorgeous ocean view.
Additionally, the staff at Deauville Inn were very helpful in planning all of the details of the event. Thus, Heather & Hugo really enjoyed working with them. It was beautiful, fun, and so full of love that everyone in attendance couldn’t help but dance and celebrate with them all day. In addition to the awesome venue, they were lucky enough to have their friends around. We captured so many wonderful moments throughout the evening.
