The couple got married in Beach Haven on Long Beach Island on September 25th, 2015. The Hamilton’s had their ceremony at Pearl Street Pavilion in Beach Haven and their reception at The Boathouse Restaurant (which is now the incredible Parker’s Garage, also available for weddings). Andre’a shared, “LBI and Beach Haven especially is very near and dear to my heart. My grandparents grew up and met in Beach Haven. My grandfather, John Kleva, worked at the Fishery on Iroquois Ave as well as Buterick Bulkheading. My grandmother, Vivian Dimmlich, was a waitress at Fred’s diner. They had my mother, Donna Kleva, who grew up on the island and worked at the Seashell as a chambermaid.”
Andre’a grew up visiting Beach Haven as a child, where she would run around the white sandy beaches and spend many fun-filled nights at Fantasy Island. “My grandfather helped build the original pavilion at Pearl Street. So when we were planning our wedding, I couldn’t think of a more perfect location to share my magical day with my friends and family!” she added. The couple was immediately attracted to their reception venue because of “the cozy beach feel and the sunsets are absolutely gorgeous,” Andre’a said. In addition to getting married on LBI, the duo used three other Southern Ocean Chamber members to make their big day extra special!
