i love this couple…i loved their details, their friends and family, the way that they look each other & love each other…there is nothing better than a bride in lace & a groom in a classic tuxedo and bowtie…emily is a wedding planner for the new york public library so i knew that her wedding would be something special…nothing would take away from their day not a hurricane days before nor the trolley which overheated at the church in avon…joe & emily decided to see each other before the ceremony for photographs so they could take advantage of the beautiful day in asbury park…although convention hall was still cleaning up we did manage to get some lovely photographs on the north end of the boardwalk which was still intact…the sea was calm and the sky was filled with beautiful pinks and oranges…the reception room at the berkeley oceanfront was absolutely stunning as were the exquisite florals provided by petal beach...the smokin’ section had the dancefloor packed as did joe when he sat with the band and played the drums…

i met neva & brian on a late night last year in my studio with neva’s dad, jack, his wife, tatiyana & brian’s son, ryan…it was immediately clear that their wedding was going to be memorable…we spent almost 2 hours together swapping stories and laughing…i could not wait for this year to spend more time with them…their wedding was glamorous, emotional and this couple was surrounded by the love of friends and family and music & dancing and so much laughter, as expected…this was the day before the sandy and it really was the calm before the storm…our day started at the berkeley oceanfront hotel in asbury park with yossi bouskila hairstylist & daria debiak, makeup artist where neva & her attendants got ready followed by a mass at st. james in red bank and photographs at monmouth university where neva works…the ballroom at the berkeley looked gorgeous bathed in purple and accented by centerpieces provided by petal beach floral designs…and corey fox from elite entertainment was fantastic…

there are not enough words to describe how great these two people are and how much fun we had with them…they were so relaxed behind and in front of the camera even though anthony had expressed his discomfort to his bride about being photographed beforehand and especially since asbury park was jumping because of the music festival that was happening that day!  the weather was misty but we were able to get out on the boards and grab some great shots before their ceremony at the berkeley oceanfront hotel…petal beach did their usual amazing job with the florals and i absolutely loved the skeleton leaves that bonnie put in the bride’s bouquet…i had never seen them before…rebecca’s jimmy choo shoes added just the right amount of bling to her sophisticated and elegant gown by lazaro…rebecca’s hair was done beautifully by kelly marchetti of thompson’s salon in shrewsbury and a special thank you to mary koury for all of her assistance as the day of coordinator…cravings of allenhurst provided the simple but pretty cake and the A band kept everyone on the floor until the end…a very special thank you to my friend and colleague, elliott negron, who came in from the city to assist me on my weddings this weekend…

    One of the biggest moments in my lifefime Is to live long enough to witness the marriage of some of my
    grandchildren. Zach is the third grandchild to be married,, and I am very fortunate to have attended this
    beautifull affair. My other desire would have been for my loving and beautifull wife Norma to havelived
    to bea part of this event. There are still a number of other grandchildren to go down this path, and maybe
    God will give me another few years to see them take this step. As Zack and my other family members
    know, family to me is the most importat jpart of a wonderfull andloving life. Meg, and Zack, I wish you
    Love, Happiness, and Lots of Good Health in the coming years. I am looking forward to Warching you raise
    You family. God Bless You All.
    All my Love,

    Jeri and Sara,

    Your pictures are breathtaking. Everyone of my friends who has viewed your blog had the same response – “Amazing!!!” One of my friends even said that there are some of the images that she would like to buy even if she didn’t know the people because they are so spectacular that they take your breath away. Your pictures have absolutely captured the day, the spirit, and the love and happiness which permeated the whole affair. These are more than pictures—they are works of art and I cannot thank you enough for your efforts. Obviously, the best wedding decision Meg and Zach made was to hire you to chronicle this event. We cannot thank you enough and we can’t wait to see the rest of your masterpieces! Thank you again. Peggy Bartlett

    There are an infinite number of adjectives to describe how magnificent these pictures are. Thank you so very much for exceeding any expectations one could have. Much of what I would say, Peggy has said above. I knew my son had an eye for beauty and the insight to choose only the best. Your work encompasses all–the bride and the art of your photography. My friend just saw the pictures and her email to me said quite simply and oh so true; “OMG, this photographer is fabulous. I feel like I attended a celebrity wedding!” By the way, Zach was number one of four–3 more to go—hopefully you travel to RI, or it seems we may have to bring the next wedding to NJ!! Jeri and Sara, thank you again for creating such magical memories we will all treasure forever. Jody Robinson
