Jillian and Kevin’s wedding day was something out of a dream. We started out at a gorgeous loft in Jersey City for Jillian’s getting ready process . All of the exposed brick, gorgeous light and mirrors lended itself very nicely to the beautiful bride. Then we traveled to the iconic and breathtaking St. Lucy’s Church in Newark, NJ. In particular, there’s a shot of Jillian standing outside the church and some of her bridesmaids helping her with her veil. In the foreground the groom’s father sees her for the first time. This image reminded me that sometimes, I see a touch of anxiety on my brides faces as they are about to walk down the aisle. But not Jillian, she was completely calm. I love moments like these; they are so honest and it just hits you in “the feels.” Because sometimes you can just see when two people are so right for each other. Now I will say, Kevin did shed some tears, at least we are calling them that, because he had an allergic reaction to his boutinerre… I’m sticking with tears, however. 🙂
After their ceremony, we headed to the Liberty House, in Jersey City to capture some awesome portraits on the surrounding grounds. It was truly incredible working with Jillian and Kevin and their day was magic. And.. Go Rangers!! Kidding Kevin.. Devils..100% Devils. 🙂 Congratulations!!!
Special thanks to Hasan of Vibrant Captures for shooting this amazing day with me!
The families came together to create a beautiful and touching slideshow of Jillian and Kevin, full of laughs and tears.
The groom’s best man is a comedian.. he’s performed at Caroline’s in the city! He had the entire wedding crying from laughter!
