Reza & Sarnia had a beautiful wedding and I was so pleased to attend as their official wedding photographer. The wedding was held at The Tides in Haledon, New Jersey. This first-class wedding venue is a perennial favorite in The Garden State.

Before their wedding day, I took them to Lambert Castle, which is renowned for its stunning medieval architecture. This castle is such a wonderful choice for outdoor shots. It used to be called Belle Vista and it’s situated in the Garret Mountain Reservation, in scenic Passaic Count, NJ. One special portrait that I took of the happy couple at Lambert Castle was displayed at their wedding, at The Tides venue.

When the big day arrived, I wanted to capture many different moods…

To create a pictorial diary of this unforgettable day, I began by taking pictures of Sarnia while she had her hair and makeup done. She was beautiful before and after. Her makeup artist and hairdresser did a terrific job. Her hair was pinned back into an elegant bun. Her striking features were highlighted by a bit of glamorous makeup.

Then, it was time to move onto The Tides for the meaningful wedding ceremony and fun-filled wedding reception. The Tides is a wedding venue that I know well. I love taking pictures at The Tides. This venue has won so many awards, thanks to its combination of beauty, amenities and first-class service. It’s an ideal choice for romantic and memorable weddings in New Jersey.

Reza Looked Exquisite on the Big Day

Sarnia’s wedding day look was simply stunning. She is a classic beauty and she looked radiant. She wore a lacy white gown that was truly gorgeous. Her feminine and flattering bridal gown, hairstyle and makeup were so lovely. She was a vision on her wedding day. She glowed in her gown and her smile was so beautiful. Brides always have a bit of magic on their wedding days, which makes them look their very best. Sarnia was no exception. She is very photogenic, as well as kind, gracious and friendly. She and Reza are both wonderful people. They were so nice. They were great models, too.

Lambert Castle Was the Perfect Backdrop

At Lambert Castle, the striking structure’s sand-colored stone, wrought iron gates and surrounding lush greenery provided superb backdrops for professional portraits of the bride and groom. I got some beautiful pictures, where they couple looked so relaxed, in love and glamorous.

There was also a stone fountain onsite, which features carvings of horses. In one appealing shot, Reza and Sarnia gazed at each other with so much love and affection, with the beautiful fountain in the backdrop.

There were so many wonderful photos taken at Lambert Castle. I hope that Reza and Sarnia love their outdoor wedding pictures as much as I do. It’s always nice to do a wedding photo shoot outside, in addition to at the wedding venue. Outdoor pictures at very special locations add so much character and richness to wedding picture albums

The Tides Looked Amazing

This wedding had an intimate feel that was very appealing. It was a smaller wedding that was beautiful and meaningful. Close friends and family were there with Reza and Sarnia to help them celebrate this important and romantic day in their lives.

The wedding ceremony was touching. It was traditional and beautiful. Sarnia wore a sheer veil and carried a vibrant wedding bouquet, which featured some wonderful red flowers. Reza was resplendent in his tux. His boutonierre matched the bridal bouquet. It was so special to watch Reza and Sarnia tie the knot. What a romantic moment. There were so many smiles and so much emotion.

After the ceremony, it was time to celebrate the new union. The Tides ballroom looked dazzling, with glorious, red-and-white flower arrangements on each table. I took pictures of the flowers, from a distance and close-up, and captured images of the wedding rings, place cards and menus.

When wedding décor is this attractive, it should be captured with a camera. Food provided for the event was exquisite and I couldn’t resist taking photos of it, including one picture of an enticing chocolate fountain. Guests were treated like royalty at this wedding. Their every need was catered to.


It was great fun to capture the wedding couple, their family and their friends as they celebrated. While this wedding was intimate in scale, it was planned to perfection. It was a joyous event that was also so stylish.
