Love Blossoms: Capturing the Westfield, NJ Town Hall Wedding of Family Friends

In the heart of Westfield, New Jersey, I had the privilege of photographing a truly special wedding ceremony at Town Hall. Join me as I recount the heartwarming moments from the wedding of my parents’ friends, who, after life’s twists and turns, found each other decided to embark on a new journey together.

We started at Sabine’s home, a place where her children grew up, that exudes a sense of love and warmth. Knowing they would soon be listing the property, it held even more meaning to take some photos here in the family home.

Long Time Friends

Having known the couple for years, witnessing their wedding was a unique and emotional experience for me. Their love story, filled with life’s ups and downs, was a powerful reminder that love can bloom again, sometimes even more beautifully, after the storms have passed. The air was filled with joy and anticipation as family and friends gathered to celebrate the couple’s commitment to each other.

The simplicity of the Town Hall ceremony added a special touch to the day. It was a ceremony full of authenticity, where every glance and smile spoke volumes about the depth of their connection.

As a photographer, my goal was to capture the genuine moments of love and happiness that unfolded throughout the day. The candid shots of laughter, tears of joy, and the tender moments shared between the couple and their loved ones became timeless snapshots of a day filled with genuine emotion.

Cheers to the Couple

The reception that followed was an intimate gathering, filled with heartfelt toasts and wishes for the couple’s future. The atmosphere was one of love, support, and the shared understanding that life’s journey is unpredictable but can still lead to beautiful destinations.

In the quaint town of Westfield, New Jersey, I had the privilege of witnessing and documenting a love story that defied time and circumstances. The wedding of my parent’s friends was not just an event; it was a celebration of resilience, second chances, and the enduring power of love. As I reflect on the joyous moments captured through my lens, I am reminded that love, when given a second chance, can create a beautiful tapestry of shared memories and new beginnings.

NJ Church Wedding

Here I am now almost 2 years after this intimate church wedding, playing catch up on the blog posts that I never posted because I still don’t understand SEO! LOL

Step into the sacred realm of love and the divine sacrament as we unfold the tale of a beautiful NJ church wedding. Our latest blog post captures the essence of a divine celebration, which showcases the spiritual significance and timeless elegance that characterize weddings held within the hallowed walls of a church. Join us on this heartfelt journey as we delve into the artistry of church wedding photography, highlighting the reverence, grace, and pure joy that emanated from every corner of this sacred space.

As a New Jersey wedding photographer, while every wedding is special, some hold a unique place in the heart. In 2022, I had the incredible honor of photographing the wedding of one of my high school classmates. The journey from classmates to capturing one of the most significant days of their lives with this divine sacrament was an honor to say the least.

It all began when Meghan reached out to me about photographing their wedding. The excitement of reconnecting with a high school friend was indeed as equally as exciting as being entrusted with such a significant role in their big day. It was particularly heartwarming.

On the wedding day, certainly emotions ran high as I documented the laughter, tears, and all the moments in between. Being both a witness and a participant in this celebration was an experience I will cherish forever. All the little details all came together to tell a story of love and connection.

As a photographer, there’s a unique perspective that comes with knowing the couple personally. Capturing their personalities, the stolen glances, and the candid moments is one of the best parts of my job.

To Meghan and Mike, thank you for letting me be a part of your special day. May your journey together be filled with love and laughter.

Sometimes things happen in life that you don’t expect. But they lead to other things and opportunities and friendships. That’s what happened here. I was invited to photograph this intimate wedding of a couple I have never met. And I swear…the moment I met them I felt like we knew each other.

WEDDINGS

I LOVE LOVE

I am a lover of love. Seeing people in love gives me inspiration, it gives me hope and it moves me to create some of my best work. And while I have done all types of weddings from big to small, I really love the small and intimate declarations of love. Think rustic, barns, wilderness, forest, private island in the middle of the Caribbean (yes I believe in manifesting my dreams) and I am THERE!

Do you know what else I love? Courthouse weddings, Travel, Destination Weddings. Have wedding, will travel. That’s a new saying I just made up. I’ve done NJ Weddings, but have also traveled for weddings out of state and I’m ready to do some more of that!

But there are a few requirements I have for my couples. In order for me to give you my absolute best work, there needs to be love. When there is love in the air my creative energy flows naturally. I prefer to capture the “feeling” of the day. The ambiance, the emotions, the connections. I want to be more of a guest at your wedding than the hired photographer. Your friends and family should feel like I’m one of your friends who just has a passion for capturing your special day. Because actually, if you book me, chances are that is exactly what happens. We become friends. As soon as you choose me to capture one of the most important days of your life, you tell me that you trust me and you love the thing that I am most passionate about; my photography work.

So what do you say? Do you think we would be a good fit? Because THAT is VERY important!

ANNIE & PETER

Venue: Maskers Barn | Watchung, NJ

I’ve known “Petey” for well over 30 years. I know, seems impossible. But yes, it most certainly is true. And his Bride, Annie, was the absolute sweetest and trusted me to be their photographer on their wedding day.

What else did she trust me with? Taking a very special photo for her and Pete announcing that they were expecting 😍🫶🏻✨

I’m from New Providence and so is Pete. It’s a small town. One of the best parts of this wedding was being around people I’ve known almost my whole life. It was really special.

I recently realized that I have spent years with this website and have been REALLY awful about blogging. I didn’t realize how important it was to do. OOPS! So here I am posting weddings from literally YEARS ago.

They said goodbye to their dog not long ago. When I was going through these pics it made me a little emotional to see the way they looked at their pup. How they incorporated him into their special day. How much they loved him <3. I’m happy they have these photos to remember him by.
