Asbury Park Engagement: Jenica + Josh

Jenica and Josh are funky, fun, and adventurous! So you’re going to love their Asbury Park engagement session captured by Sherry from Sherry Sutton Photography. Let’s let Jenica and Josh fill us in on all of the day’s special details.

Jenica and Josh said, “We really wanted something fun and unique for our engagement shoot so we chose Asbury Park, NJ for our location. It was perfect! We wanted to pay tribute to our engagement on the Love Lock Bridge in Paris; we brought some fun “Parisian” props including a pink Eiffel Tower, French soda bottles, and pink macaroons. On the same trip to Paris, we came across a beautiful swan at Marie Antoinette’s chateau in Versailles. Asbury Park has these amazing swan pedal boats so we HAD to get photos there. Sherry gave us a key ring as an engagement present so we incorporated that into the shots. One of our favorite finds was a custom pinwheel with our wedding date on it. We had it custom made by Leah R Hood. We are thrilled with the way the photos came out!” See for yourself…

Jessica + Josh’s Cinematic Wedding Video

Jessica and Josh’s cinematic wedding video is a unique, compelling and visual collection of events occurring during their wedding day. Their cinematic wedding video begins near the premier Berkeley Oceanfront Hotel in Asbury Park, New Jersey where Jessica and Josh were married. Jessica and Josh had the creative team from Feuza Inc. capture their wedding with both video and photography. We think you’ll enjoy learning about what exactly cinematic wedding video captures and checking out some of the highlights from their wedding photos. First off, let’s find out what Cinematic Video is from the owner of Feuza Inc., Feuza Reis.

Filmed by Maxwel Tomaz, Nino Gallego and David Lima, edited by David Lima.

Feuza tells us, “Cinematic Video is a modern twist to traditional videography in that the video is filmed focusing on the story of the day, as if your wedding was a movie where the two main characters are the bride and groom. Instead of getting a long boring video that you may just watch once in your lifetime, you will get a compelling love story video with highlights, easy and small enough to share on social media or on the web with family and friends. We use DSLR cameras which have an amazing sensor giving the cinema feel and provide a less obtrusive way to capture your wedding day. We decided to offer this kind of service because we saw our brides were not choosing video in fear of just getting a traditional video, with more emphasis on bright lights focused on them than the day’s magical events. Cinematic video is an unique way to tell your story with a modern, fun, and clean approach resulting in your own personal wedding day movie. We don’t see ourselves as videographers but as film makers. So, say good bye cheesy videos – and hello imagery in movement! Cherish your wedding day for many years to come online where all or only you can see.

Notes from Nicole, the bride:

Verde Studio: She creates beautiful vintage stamp sets, often with a certain color or theme. I highly recommend if you are looking to purchase vintage stamps with a specific color or theme. I bought her stamp sets for almost all of the wedding stationary I sent out. It saved me a lot of time and money that I would have spend buying and sorting through stamp sheets.

Unless Someone Like You: She created my lovely scratch off save the dates and does great work, and although she closed down her etsy shop, you can find her here:

Tilde Designs: Created some of my wedding signs.

I collected all of the white milk glass vases myself, spending a lot of time scouring Etsy and ebay for good deals. I also used Etsy and ebay for vintage handkerchiefs, which I then washed, pressed, and packaged to give out to guests at the ceremony. I DIY’d all of my stationary except save the dates and invitations. I have to admit that I loved spending time making things for the wedding!
