Summer Backyard Microwedding in Long Branch, NJ | NJ Photographer


Michelle and Tom are one of most adventurous and outgoing couples ever, and yet when you see them together and ask them about each other you’ll quickly learn that for these two there’s really no place like home, and home to them is each other! They have adventured all around the country and made some of the most incredible memories together. They are one of those couples that love each other endlessly and are truly soul mates! I couldn’t wait for their summer backyard microwedding in Long Branch!

 Michelle and Tom went through the wringer while planning their wedding. Their venue cancelled all 2021 weddings and so they had to start from the ground-up and decide what they wanted their wedding to look like. They cut their guest list and ended up landing on having an intimate backyard microwedding at Tom’s parents’ home in Long Branch, New Jersey.

Because of this, they were really able to put the focus on them and their closest crew! Everyone invited was a dear friend or family member. Tom’s dad even had the honor of marrying them! From their first look to their first dance, every single moment of their special day was laced in love and admiration for each other. Michelle and Tom celebrated the most important day together as a couple with those that they loved most. It was special, intentional, intimate, and so full of joy and love.
