Modern & Romantic City Wedding at Maritime Parc

Jersey City, New Jersey


I absolutely love shooting at Maritime Parc in Jersey City, and Brianne and Scott’s wedding was no exception! These two are so incredibly sweet, and had such a beautiful celebration with their family and friends on an absolutely gorgeous fall day.

Brianne and Scott are actually high school sweethearts! As Brianne tells it, “Scott and I met our sophomore year of high school. I was a member of our school’s Varsity hockey team and Scott was a transfer student who would be joining the team. While the season didn’t start until the fall, it was a small school so new faces stuck out (and I happened to have a bit of a crush on him from afar!). However, our first official meeting wasn’t until the first hockey practice of the season. After a few close encounters on the ice, it was only a matter of time before Scott sent me a message on AIM trying to plan our first date!”

These two got engaged in March of 2021. “Scott and I lived in Jersey City together for 3 years before moving to Montclair during COVID. One Friday when he knew I had a hair appointment in Jersey City, he made plans for us to go out to dinner nearby since we were in the area. Before we got to the restaurant, he asked if I wanted to walk along the water in Liberty State Park since we had some time to kill before our dinner reservation. Sure enough, he surprised me and proposed! Our families were both waiting for us at Liberty House after to celebrate.”

Brianne and Scott made their marriage official at Saint Ann Roman Catholic Church in Hoboken, before heading to Liberty State Park for portraits. It was an absolutely beautiful day — with the threat of rain in the forecast all week, we were pleasantly surprised with clear, sunny skies and a cool breeze all day. Maritime Parc was the perfect setting for these two to celebrate alongside their guests, and I am so excited to see what this next chapter in life has in store. Congratulations, Brianne and Scott!
