There are just some love stories that are meant to be. As for Kristie and Rudi, they are one of those stories. Their beautiful coastal New Jersey shore wedding was everything they could have ever imagined it to be. After waiting so long for this very day, it finally came and it moved swiftly and was pure and utter perfection.
Kristie & Rudi’s Love Story
Kristie and Rudi met back in 2018, coincidentally in the same town where they ended up getting married. That town being Avalon, New Jersey. Their connection was almost instantaneous. From that point on, their relationship grew into love and continued to flourish over the years. It wasn’t until January 2020 that everything was going to change.
As we all know, the world basically shut down once March 2020 rolled around. It was in August of that year that Rudi flew to London to meet up with his friend, who was a jeweler. Months prior, Kristie and Rudi were in talks with this jeweler about ring design. Once August came around, it was time for Rudi to pick it up and see the ring that his future wife was going to wear. Enduring the difficult navigation through the airport peak pandemic, along with wearing a mask for 24 hours (a 16-hour flight, plus an additional 8 waiting at the airport), he finally secured the ring. Kristie and Rudi patiently waited for 2022, so that Rudi’s family from the UK could fly in for the wedding. Fast forward to their big day and everyone couldn’t wait for these two to finally tie the knot.
Coastal New Jersey Shore Wedding
Kristie and Rudi had their wedding at the Avalon Yacht Club. Seeing as the shore is where Kristie is the happiest and where she met Rudi, it was only fitting to have their wedding there. The morning was spent getting ready in separate homes, Kristie with her bridesmaids and Rudi with his groomsmen. Thankfully, the weather was absolutely breathtaking, so we were really able to soak up as much of the outdoors as possible. With some beautiful portraits taken by the beach, a touching ceremony, and a reception that was such a large celebration for the newlyweds, it truly was the perfect day.
