Sarah & Jamie’s Wedding Photos at the Ryland Inn NJ

We’ve been told by our brides that winter weddings are hard to plan. Well, Sarah & Jamie nailed it with their beautiful winter wedding at The Ryland Inn, NJ. The decor was stunning – an intimate mix of low light, candles, white flowers and branches that conjure up feelings of warm & cozy. They even brought in their own farm table! After all their hard work, the setting was perfect and the happy couple sure looked like they had a great time dancing the night away!

Denise & Michael’s Wedding Photos at Maritime Parc, Jersey City, NJ

Denise was the 1st of her trio of friends who we will be photographing. All getting married within 6 months of each other and all such sweet & fantastic women!

The day did not start well for Denise & Mike. The annual Tough Mudder was going to take place right in front of Maritime Parc. For those of you who do not know, Tough Mudder is an obstacle course with big mud pits. You come out looking like mud men! They closed Liberty State Park for the event and caused poor Denise & Mike a lot of unnecessary stress. There is a silver lining to everything though – we spoke to the parks department and got to do their first look on the beautiful cobblestoned road. On a normal day, that road would have been filled with cars. And what an absolutely beautiful spot it was for a first look!

There was another surprise waiting for the couple. But this time, it was an unexpected fireworks display at Liberty State Park. How absolutely thrilling for the newlyweds! They toughed it out and boy, did the evening end with a bang!
