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.

New Jersey Wedding Photographer | Brooklake Country Club | Alyssa + David
Alyssa and David’s wedding was a very special one for me.  Call me hormonal because I was two weeks from giving birth but this one had all the feels.  The Brooklake Country Club served as the backdrop to the wonderful day. The ladies primped in a lovely bridal suite.  Alyssa wore earrings created from David’s late mother’s earrings and her mother’s necklace. A foreign friend was around for support. The gentlemen got ready one door away from the ladies.  I’m digging their custom rocks glasses. David’s wedding band was one of the most unique and sentimental I’ve ever seen.  His own mother’s wedding band was part of hi ...

Anna and Andrew held their wedding on a rainy Saturday in December.  For many couples, this would be incredibly disheartening.  Somehow I manage to get the most amazing couples in the world, the kind that take it all in stride and carry on with big, beautiful smiles.  Anna and Andrew wowed me. Everything from the getting ready prep to the reception happened at the Union League of Philadelphia. Anna and her gals happily chattered while getting dolled up in one room while the gents were throwing it back in another. Anna was dressed to the nines in a dreamy sweetheart, A-line Watters gown with loads of lace and some bling arou ...
