Chris & Ana's Wedding

You may remember Chris and Ana from their Hoboken engagement session last year. These two were last year's free wedding contest winners. They got married on April 3rd at Crystal Plaza in Livingston, NJ. The venue was stunning! Jeanine La Macchia was the hairstylist, and Jeanine Mangan did the makeup--they both did an awesome job! Kelvin Gerald kept the music going all night long (and even gave the guests an encore when they started cheering for more!)

It was really difficult narrowing down my favorites...Despite a little rain in the morning, these two had the perfect day! The ceremony was gorgeous, and Ana's pink color scheme looked incredible. The ceremony was quite emotional, especially when Ana read Chris a poem by E.E. Cummings-I don't think there was a dry eye in the house. They left the ceremony to an instrumental version of Snow Patrol's "Chasing Cars" which even got me crying! The party kicked off with some great entrances by the bridal party, and the dance floor was packed all night. We ended the evening with an impromptu photo shoot in the cocktail hour room. Now I'll stop telling you how amazing their big day was, and let you see for yourself!

Congrats Chris and Ana, I wish you two all the very best!!

Family Portraits at the Cherry Blossom Festival

I was so excited when Janet asked me to take her family portraits at the Cherry Blossom Festival in Branch Brook Park. I had never been there, but I'm so glad we went! These four were SO much fun, and we had a great time at the festival! The park was packed, but we worked around it as best as we could, and even got to sneak in some shots of JUST Mom and Dad!
