Glamorous Spring Wedding at The Venetian

Garfield, New Jersey


Stephanie and Chris are married! These two had the most beautiful day celebrating their love at The Venetian, and I couldn’t be happier for them!

This wedding was full of so much joy and emotion, and it was a pleasure capturing every moment. From their thoughtful gifts and sweet letters to each other, to their promises made during the ceremony, and ending the night with an epic dance party — it was truly the perfect day.

I actually went to high school with Steph, so being a part of her wedding day was all the more special. She is the absolute sweetest person, and she has found an equally sweet match in Chris! He is so incredibly kind and caring, and they are honestly the perfect match. Hearing all of the beautiful things each of their families had to say about them was so heartwarming, and I caught myself tearing up more than once throughout the day!

This wedding day was the first day of spring, and if you know anything about March in New Jersey it’s that the weather can go one of two ways — gorgeous, warm, and high 60s, or a blizzard. Just kidding (kind of), but Steph and Chris lucked out with the perfect partly cloudy, cool day.

Now when I say the night ended with an epic dance party, I am not exaggerating. These two (and their guests!) know how to have an amazing time, and Posh DJs did not disappoint with the music selection. It took all of my strength to keep shooting and not join in on the party (although I know Steph and Chris would have encouraged me to!).

I’m so glad Steph and Chris had such a beautiful day to celebrate their marriage, and I wish them all the best in this next chapter of their love story!
