Allison and Matthew

March 3, 2018

Photographer: Magdalena Kernan


Allison and Matthew met while both working at Shore Medical Center. They worked in different aspects of the hospital, Allison in clinical, Matt in administration. They only saw each other in passing and it took three months for them to get up the courage to introduce themselves. After that, they were inseparable.

Matt proposed at their apartment with just the two of them, right before we were leaving for dinner plans with Allison’s dad and younger brother. His proposal was sweet and endearing and very much his style. The newly engaged couple had a weekend long celebration with family and friends from all over!

Allison and Matthew, having been born and raised in Cape May County, decided to get married here, but opt for a less traditional beach wedding. Choosing the perfect season for their wedding was easy, winter. The couple visited numerous wedding venues in Cape May County and fell absolutely in love with The Abbie Holmes Estate. It truly represented their style and personality. The Abbie Holmes Estate staff was extremely accommodating and helpful throughout the entire wedding planning process.

The day of their wedding went so smoothly and was stress free. For their forever photos, they were extremely fortunate to have Magdalena Studios as the wedding photographer. Magi and her associate, Megan, were beyond amazing. Magi was one of the best vendors to have, she was very calming and relaxed which helped put Allison and Matthew at ease. Magi also was helpful prior to our wedding in making sure we had all of the family and group photos we wanted, as well as additional items for day of photos. It was the perfect day!
