Jessica and Richard were married on August 29th at the Waterside Restaurant in North Bergen New Jersey overlooking gorgeous views of the New York City skyline.
This beautiful summer day started off at Homewood Suites by Hilton where I photographed both Jessica and Richard getting ready there before departing to the venue…
I love to create special images for my brides… especially knowing that Jessica was going to be married overlooking the NYC skyline…
I wrote more about this photo and how I photographed it here.
Between Jessica’s attentive make up artist, hair stylist and bridesmaids…she had a special group of women helping her and making the getting ready portion of the day go smoothly.
Which makes me very happy too! =)
I love Jessica’s expression and soft gaze in this portrait.
And I love how this angle shows off her eyes’ stunning bone structure.
I adore these bridesmaids dresses! Gorgeous colors! Each one is unique with the perfect amount of sparkle.

After their Ketubah signing ceremony Jessica’s helpful bridesmaid MariLynne freshened up Jessica’s hair before walking up the aisle
Meanwhile the men grabbed a toast within minutes before the procession.

And Mom winking – I love capturing subtle moments and gestures like this…
Truly a picturesque setting and the late afternoon sun is an ideal time of day for an outdoor wedding…showing off the NYC skyline as well as providing warm – flattering light.
There were a lot of laughs and heartfelt stories as Rabbi Bill Kurry and Father Anthony Azzarato officiated their ceremony.
This magical moonrise occurred during cocktail hour.
Allison…Allison…Allison…I had no idea you were such a ham!
I photographed Allison’s wedding in May of 2014.

Including more moonlight for some quick night time portraits. . .
Thank you so much Jessica and Richard – for trusting me to photograph your beautiful wedding day.
Wishing you all the love and happiness your hearts can hold.
