Peter Shields Inn Wedding Photographer

Walking up to the striped awning, which drapes over the wrap-around veranda, the Peter Shields Inn conjures up nostalgic feelings as you take in the grandeur of this Georgian Revival mansion. This historic venue in Cape May, built in 1907, has both indoor and outdoor options for ceremonies and receptions as well as several carefully renovated guest rooms. A boutique inn, a wedding at Peter Shields Inn is brimming with warm hospitality, stunning Atlantic Ocean views, and an award-winning menu.

One of the highlights of the Peter Shields Inn is the area next to the bridal suite where double doors open up onto the balcony where white sands and blue skies fill the frame. I love using this spot for creating inspired, romantic, and stunning portraits of the bride. The natural, back-lit light brings out all the detail in her dress and veil. A relaxed environment in a stylish setting provides the perfect space for candidly capturing the love and laughter before the big day begins.

Standing at the waters’ edge and sharing your vows as the waves crash around you, is nothing short of extraordinary. Located on Beach Avenue and adjacent to the dunes which lead to the water, couples can gather with their guests in the sand, or walk there with their tribe. Couples who want to enjoy the view sans the sand can hold their wedding ceremony on the steps of the Peter Shields Inn, where the iconic architecture provides a stunning background. For those worried about the weather, ceremonies can also be held on the traditional grand staircase.

Sunset in the sand is absolutely magical, both for your guests, but also provides a true one-of-a-kind moment to capture truly incredible wedding portraiture. Set against the unbroken blue horizon, or amongst the tall, swaying grass of the dunes, the beauty of Peter Shields Inn is ideal.

The bespoke nature of the Inn with its turn-of-the-century architecture and spires, photograph like something out of a storybook. From the stately face of the mansion, the veranda, and even the stairwell, there are ample locations that create outstanding backdrops for creating the kind of unique wedding portraiture Iryna Shostak Photography is known for.

Friends and family can enjoy a beachside dinner without the hassle of the blowing sand. Peter Shields Inn is the perfect blend of a beach affair with the modern comforts and amenities of a grand reception. Guests stay connected with the beauty of the coastline with unparalleled views from their seating on the veranda under the whimsical striped canopy, or the dining room. Award-winning cuisine can be served at stations, buffet-style, or as a plated dinner.

Their onsite professional staff are skilled are helping you plan your wedding from your initial consultation, right through to the last kiss. Their attention to detail and award-winning service set the standard for boutique weddings in Cape May, and they are known for creating stress-free days filled with fabulous memories.
