I LOVED shooting this wedding at the gorgeous Maritime Parc in New Jersey. Erik and Stephanie are just the nicest couple you’d ever want to meet. They had every right to be stressed beyond words at the weather situation that unfolded on their wedding day in June. It was storm-a-rific. The ceremony was supposed to be held outdoors, but in the end, the storms were too unpredictable so it was moved inside. We also had planned a first look and every time we got ready to go outside, it would start to rain. Finally we managed to sneak one in only to have it start raining about 5 minutes later! Not ONCE did it seem to phase Stephanie or Erik. They were just so excited to get married, they didn’t have any cares other than seeing each other at the end of the aisle. And isn’t that the way it’s supposed to be?
At the end of the night I didn’t want to leave the dance floor! Their friends and family were such a blast and I felt like a guest rather than just a photographer.
Thank you both for reminding me how much I love what I do.
Here are some (tons) of my favorites from the day. And, as always, CLICK HERE FOR THE SLIDESHOW! It’s just chock full of love and fun!
That storm I spoke of…. Yeah, that’s it below.
The first look
It started to rain again right after we took this shot
That sky made me SO happy!
And then, as if to apologize for putting the ceremony indoors, Mother Nature gave us a rainbow!
It attracted quite a crowd of paparazzi!
