Bay Head Sailing Bliss: Bay Head Yacht Club: New Jersey Wedding Photographers

Jen and Andrew were both Boston College grads who meet through mutual friends and quickly fell in love.  They decided that the shore with it's beauty and friends would be the perfect place for the wedding.  On the big day Jen look just gorgeous in a Paloma Blanca gown with lace detailing and pearl accented belt.  Adorable blue seersucker dresses from Lula Kate and Invitations by Vera Wang were just the thing for a shore wedding with a sailing theme.  Andrew and his groomsmen were handsome in sport coats and khaki's with Vineyard Vine Ties.  After the ceremony the bridal party headed to the beach for some quick photos.  The Bay Head Yacht Club was the perfect venue for the couple and Petal Beach Floral Design Studio created hydrangea and rose arrangements in silver vases that were bathed in candlelight.  Sailing knots tied by the groom held table numbers and mini beach badges told the guests where to sit.  Mueller's Bakery of Bay Head even added an anchor cake topper.  The bride and groom danced all night to the original Springsteen tribute band, The B Street Band, while Michael Simmons Productions captured the night on video.  What a night!

A Beautiful Russian Orthodox Wedding: The Madison Hotel: New Jersey Wedding Photography

Some things are just meant to be!  Just before Memorial Day weekend in 2009 New York City was humming with activity.  Marina and her girlfriends celebrated with dinner, drinks and "girl talk".  As they were discussing love Marina's friend Jill pointed across the room and said, “You never know what’s going to happen, Marina. Your future husband could be right around the corner; he could be that guy right there.” As Marina followed the extended hand she caught eyes with Mark. Two years later while on vacation in Warsaw's Old Town in Poland Mark proposed and Marina ecstatically accepted!  The couple toured the city by horse and carriage reveling in the romantic evening and thoughts of their future life together.

For the big day Mark and Marina enlisted the help of Agnieshka Burke of Pumpkin Coach Events to help create their vision.  Marina looked like a movie star from a bygone era in her Paloma Blanca gown from Bijou Bridal of Paramus, NJ.  Invitations by Pumpkin Coach Events had an old world feel and simple yet elegant bouquets from Flowers by Connie Riemer completed the look.  For a bit of sparkle Marina accented her gown with a veil embellished with crystals from Exquisite Bride of Millburn, NJ.  We just loved the little mirror she used to touch up her make up which had a wedding image of her grandparents on it.   A beautiful ceremony was held at the ornate St. John The Baptist Russian Orthodox Church The Madison Hotel, a Georgian Style Mansion set with beautiful mature trees, was a captivating reception site. The parents of the bride gave a touching toast and presented the bride with the traditional Russian wedding offering of bread and salt symbolizing a prosperous marriage.  At the end of the evening Marina perched on the ornate bar near the ballroom for a quick kiss!
