The Bridgewater Manor played host to Vanessa & John’s winter wedding festivities which featured holiday/christmas decor such as decorated trees, mistletoes, wreaths, some santa decor and of course featured this beautiful bride and groom exchanging vows , sharing their first dance and celebrating with family and friends. It was my pleasure to be Vanessa & John’s wedding photographer on what turned out to be a great night that flowed smoothly thanks to the staff at Bridgewater Manor and the bridal party helping to create some great memories as we captured some great wedding photos.

From the very first meeting, I knew Brandie & Joe were going to be a great couple to work with. Our engagement shoot at Allaire State Park only set the tone for the great wedding day photos at the Grand Marquis in Old Bridge, NJ. For his ceremony entrance with his groomsmen, Joe wanted to come out with a little “edge”, so he had them don bandanas, shades and black hats as they walked out to Brantley Gilbert’s “Kick it to the Sticks”. Brandie & her ladies kept it a little more traditional. During our cocktail shoot, we had a little fun on rt 9 creating our version of the Beatles famed Abbie Rd walking shot. Everything about Brandie & Joe’s wedding day was perfect, from the weather to the ceremony and the music and then of course, their family & friends.

Monique & Shaun’s NJ wedding at the Oakside Bloomfield Cultural Center/Oakside Mansion was a pleasure to capture for my wife & I. Having grown up down the block and previously capturing a couple of weddings there before, I knew we would be able to get some great photos. Monique & Shaun’s bridal party, family and friends were so awesome and relaxed. They made us feel like a part of the family as everything about the day was perfect, from the weather which despite the chill that required heavy coats for some, was ten times better than the projected rain to the ceremony and the party that saw a full dance floor throughout the night. Oakside’s staff was just as great to work with as they kept the proceedings moving smoothly and even provided the great looking wedding cake.

Allaire State Park in Wall, NJ, played host to Brandie & Joe’s rustic engagement photo shoot that featured awesome photos on the back of a steam engine train, me sitting on the train tracks as Brandie & Joe walked them, a pretty cool skeleton on top of a carriage,some cool shots up against a barn, and best of all, some fun in the leaves and of course, all the beautiful fall foliage that we took advantage of as we walked the trails around the park and along the Manasquan River.
Dana & Rob’s Pompton Lakes backyard wedding was filled with love, friends, food and drink and best of all, a fire truck. What more could you ask for?! With Rob being a firefighter, it was only fitting to have the neighborhood firehouse send over a fire truck for us to use for wedding photos. Toss in a nearby lakeside park for additional photos and a chance for the kids to have fun, let alone also allow the adults to bring out their inner child by playing on the swings, monkey bars and roundabout. Dana and Rob’s wedding day had everything you could ask for and it was my pleasure to be their wedding photographer.

Monique & Shaun came dressed to impress as we prepped for their NJ Wedding with engagement photos that featured awesome backgrounds at the Hoboken Terminal train station and photos in the park with the NYC skyline.
As soon as my wife and I arrived for Nora & Aaron’s preparations, I knew this day was going to be great. You can’t expect anything less from such a down to earth, easy going couple who could not wait to see each other down the aisle at Flanders Valley and had nothing but big ol’ smiles throughout the day.

“TRADITIONAL WITH A TWIST
May 7, 2014 / By Wedding Connection Staff
This summer wedding in Wood-Ridge, New Jersey is the perfect example of how you can have a classic wedding and still include some personality.
The bride’s gown had a very beautiful and unique neckline that seemed to be made for her. The bouquet was made up of simple white roses, which complimented the intricate lace and beadwork of the dress.
Both the bridesmaids and groomsmen wore black which were complimented nicely by bouquets and of baby’s-breath and other white accents.
As the new couple exited the church after the ceremony, a bagpipe player sporting the kilt serenaded them.
Colorful personality started to show through the black and white at the reception. There were baskets of coloring books for the kids, photo albums the bride and groom even posed in costume items for pictures!
