it couldn’t quite make it’s mind up whether to rain or shine but we had enough time to get what we wanted before the skies opened up so no matter…it was the beginning of a three day wedding weekend with the wonderful julia wagner who came in from north carolina to assist me as well as repeats from some of my favorite professionals such as amy mcgowen brilliant makeup artist, petal beach florists, the incredible brian kirk and the jirks all at the stateroom in long beach island which like me is part of the weddings of distinction group….what a great way to start!

kelli & brian had a beautiful, windy day for their wedding at the always amazing clark’s landing yacht club…kelli is so sweet and was overjoyed about her day…she looked so lovely and i loved the brooch she wore in her hair done perfectly by the wonderful denise vacchianonina from perfect faces worked her magic with kelli’s makeup and something nice provided all of the florals…brian and his groomsmen all wore classic tuxedos and bowties  which i always think is the best look for a dapper groom next to a gorgeous bride…not only were they treated to a beautiful sunset but the dancefloor was jammed packed due to the incredible brian kirk and the jirks…special thanks to julia wagner for shooting alongside me on her last wedding before moving to north carolina…

laura & kiernan definitely had more than the luck of the irish on their wedding day…they had an amazing group of family and friends, incredible vendors such as jeanine magnan who did a lovely job with laura’s makeup, peter james who outdid himself with the bouquets and tablescapes and the always fantastic, brian kirk & the jirks, who graciously shared his mike with laura’s harmonica playing dad, bill, at the gorgeous spring lake golf club…bill got quite the kick out of documenting my every move and sharing his captures with me throughout the day…it was wonderful seeing bill and his lovely wife, judy, yesterday as guests attending another one of my weddings and getting to know them better…although the day started out cloudy and wet, it stopped just after their ceremony at st. rose with enough time to take some great photos on the boardwalk in avon followed by a stop at darcy’s tavern and then on to spring lake golf club….the room glowed with all the warm fall colors and was filled to the brim with so much love and laughter and dancing that i almost forgot i was working…thank you laura & kiernan for letting us spend the day with all of you…you feel like old friends now…

carol & sam

there has been occasion over the years where i work with a group of families and when i see them it feels more like spending the day with family rather than work…this has been my experience with the langley family since i photographed their daughter michele’s wedding in may…michele and carol’s parents, marybeth and greg, are very special people and it has been a joy and honor getting to know their wonderful family and spending time with their friends many of whom we have been privileged to work with as well for their happy occasions–michele & jeremy takacs, maria & mark brewer whose wedding i photographed in december and maria’s parents, the ronans, the kingsberys, whose daughter katie was just married a couple of weeks ago–i loved working with and seeing each and every one of you!  carol and sam had an absolutely perfect day for their wedding ceremony at st. james church in red bank and their poolside reception at the rumson country club…it was great getting to work with emil from mike simons video again, brian kirk and the jirks always keeps everyone on the floor, nicole from mustillos who helped carol get dressed and the beautiful flowers from boxwood gardens…they had a gorgeous night complete with a full moon!  here’s a peak…
