Ceremony: Kirkpatrick Chapel – New Brunswick, NJ
Reception: The Palace at Somerset Park, Somerset, NJ
Valerie and Matthew it’s hard to put into words how I felt about shooting your day. Why? Because sometimes, it’s hard to describe the mere magic that can be seen in images with words. From the moment I arrived at for the getting ready images, it was clear that their wedding day was the true joining of two souls destined for one another. Upon my arrival, Valerie was at the end of a ‘treasure hunt’ that Matthew lead her on, a series of cards and clues to lead her to his gift; the most beautiful pearl necklace. And her gift to him? The most incredible inscribed pocket watch. Truly timeless gifts, much like their love for one another. In all of my years shooting, I don’t think I have ever seen a couple smile, ALL DAY. I mean, it was amazing at how the small mention of each others name lead them to beam with joy. Valerie’s procession down the aisle was incredible, and when her father handed over his daughter to his new son, I still get chills. I watched tears in his eyes and he said something to his new son, which I couldn’t hear, but I know it important as they ensued with a hug at the end. And this moment when Valerie and Matthew they finally saw each other? The love in the air was palpable. That feeling lasted all day and into the night as they partied the night away with their family and friends. Valerie and Matthew, thank you for allowing me to capture your day. I can’t thank you enough, truly. I felt so moved capturing the incredible passion you have for one another and wish you many many many years of love and happiness!
