kara & michael

even though the weather did not cooperate much for kara & michael their wedding couldn’t have been more perfect…the flowers provided by van brunt were beautiful and i loved kara’s badgley mishka shoes… despite the rain, we still decided to do some photos on the boardwalk in asbury…a big thank you to the owner of stella marina who graciously ran out in the rain and handed kara and mike two congratulatory glasses of champagne when he saw them braving the weather through his restaurant window…mike, an avid mets fan, was “kind of” a good sport when i pulled out my yankees umbrella although it made for some great ribbing at my expense and led to the umbrella going missing for awhile…we headed over to branches where dj jimmy mac kept the crowd on the floor till the end…

    Hi! The pics are GREAT! I was a bridesmaid in this wedding! We had a blast!!! I just wanted to send you a PS. It was the owner of Stella Marina that came out to congratulate them, not the owner of watermark. Just wanted to give the credit to the right guy!

erin & mike

by wedding number three of an exceptionally busy weekend i would typically be fried to a crisp but between all the gorgeous details that erin had including the colorful florals by wallflowers, the light, airy atmosphere that makes photographing at matisse in belmar so wonderful, erin and mike and their beautiful boy, nicholas,  not to mention the INCREDIBLE clouds in the sky for their oceanfront wedding, i was completely energized!  and if that were not enough to keep the energy high, nick from imagine entertainment always does the trick…take a look…

heather & chris

it didn’t look like the weather was going to cooperate for heather and chris but it did not only giving them a great day but a beautiful sunset as well!  i was especially honored to be photographing this wedding as heather is the niece of a colleague and friend, bonnie from petal beach and both of bonnie’s daughters were in the bridal party…the family made sara and i feel like family and we loved sharing in their joy and being able to document their special day for them…as usual the flowers provided of course by petal beach were gorgeous and nicole from anna soiree did a lovely job with the programs and table cards…after church in ocean grove we made a quick stop at the beach before heading off to eagle ridge country club where we were thoroughly entertained by kris abramson from elite entertainment…here’s a little preview!

melissa & jeff

this was a second wedding for this family and me as i photographed the groom’s sister, bethany’s wedding several years ago, so it was great to see everyone again…we had an early start to our day as they decided to see one another prior to their church ceremony at st. james in red bank…melissa had the AMAZING hair & makeup wizards, denise vacchiano and jeanine mangan, and it is always fantasic starting our day seeing their faces…the flowers from petal beach were sooo pretty…it was great being back at the mill in spring lake with the fantastic mission dance…special mention to best man, ryan from thomas ryan ward designs, who designed all the invitations, programs and paper details…well done!
