Jenn + Matt: a Catholic Wedding in New Jersey

Wedding

Last month I photographed a truly beautiful wedding. The couple was the stunning Jenn and dapper Matt. They had a lovely ceremony at St. Peter’s Catholic Church in Merchantville, NJ. I loved that they had a bagpiper!





After some serious getting lost looking for a park, we scrapped the idea and headed towards the aquarium for some fantastic shots of the couple with the Ben Franklin Bridge in the background. I let the pictures speak for themselves…





I just adore that long cathedral veil. It may be a pain, but it makes the most beautiful pictures! Jenn was absolutely adorable. She was all smiles and loved being a model for us. Her laughter was contagious.


I took a quick shot back at the aquarium while Jennifer and Matt rested for a few seconds against the Philly skyline.


The reception was held at Camden’s Adventure Aquarium in a big dark L-shaped room. The two inner walls came from a floor to ceiling shark and fish tank. The tables were adorned with tall branches and hanging candles and orchid blossoms. The entire scene was quite a sight. The couple even hosted a sundae bar for guests towards the end of the night.



A truly special part of the night came when Jenn danced with her father, a musician, to a song he had written just for her for that day.


I loved the intricate swirly details on their cake.


At twilight, we took the couple outside for some shots while the sky was turning from that creamy purplish into night.


It was a great day with great venues and a truly sweet and easy-going couple. All the best to you both!


The arms of love encompass you with your present, your past, your future, the arms of love gather you together.

Philadelphia Wedding Photographer | All Saints Catholic Church | Stacy & Joe
Not many couples get the chance to get married twice. Two venues, two dresses, two parties, two cities, and two completely different weddings (don’t worry, same partners). Stacy and Joe are just that lucky. To tell you the truth, I feel the luckiest of all because I got to see them for their engagement session around the Art Museum, another session with Stacy, and both of their weddings.The first was on July 4th in Philadelphia (pretty perfect, no?). Joe’s entire family lives within a few blocks of each other. And this is a big family. Joe is one of 10 and then you’ve got all of the spouses, nieces, nephews… It was so important that th ...
