Cape May Wedding Photographer – Eileen and Jim – The Southern Mansion

Eileen and Jim chose a sunny April day for their wedding in Cape May, Nj at the Southern Mansion.  We started with a few getting ready images and headed over to the beach for the first look and bridal party portraits.  The ceremony took place on the lawn of the Southern Mansion.  We had a great time capturing their day.

Here is a glimpse!

whiskey ceremony

They did a whiskey ceremony which I loved. Each of them poured their own whiskey into the barrel to create their own custom blend just for their wedding ceremony
