Discover the Charm of a Small New Jersey Wedding!

If you're considering a small wedding, you should know that I photograph a lot of these types of nuptials and find them completely charming. For example, the wedding featured here today was small in size and scale, but big on emotion, tradition and style! Church Location First Presbyterian , in Ridge-field New Jersey

Sometimes, smaller weddings allow for an intimate ambiance that larger ceremonies and receptions just can't match!

As you can see from the wonderful pictures I've posted here today, small is beautiful. 

Jeff and Michelle Looked Amazing

This attractive couple were so in love on the big day and they were wed at First Presbyterian Church in Ridgefield Park, New Jersey. The couple was doing their wedding ceremony   here in New Jersey and will have another celebration overseas in the future.

To bring the spirit of the whole day to life, I also made sure to get some photos of Michelle having her makeup done before she walked down the aisle, as well as some photos of the unique and appealing wedding decor, including charming wooden signs which read, "Let Love Grow" and "Love Never Fails". These signs rested along the edges of the aisle that led up to the church altar. Beautiful decoration by Every Creations. You can check out theiramazing work @ Sweetsongbird.eveyscreations

These little signs were simple, rustic and very meaningful. They added so much romance! In addition, I think that my portrait of the two adorable little girls in the wedding party is one that the bride and groom will treasure forever!

To capture an array of other special moments, I took photographs of Jeff, Michelle and wedding party at the church. Then, we all moved to Park Cooper's Pond (in Bergenfield, New Jersey) to take some lovely outdoor photos, including a very cute shot of the bride sitting on a park bench, blowing a kiss to her handsome groom over her shoulder! 

It's nice to play around with backgrounds and New Jersey offers some of the best. When it comes to adding character and dimension to wedding photography, a mixture of interior and exterior shots and traditional and modern poses almost always fit the bill. This couple made my job easier because they are so photogenic and they were pleased to have a little fun with the whole thing. 

 

Wedding day joy really brings out the charisma in brides and grooms and it's my job to show it off to absolute perfection! I was very happy with the way that these wedding photographs came out and I hope that you love them, too. 

The Reception Was Held at Tivoli

After the church and park part of the day was over, the wedding party met at a restaurant cafe, Ridge field , NJ  Tivoli, in New Jersey. It's a premier Italian eatery in Bergen County and its neutral palette, glittering chandeliers and inviting ambiance make it a perfect venue for wedding receptions...and wedding photography. 

 

I wish Jeff and Michelle the very best as they embark on their new life as husband and wife. I really enjoyed getting to know them and their family and friends. I love this job!!
