We’re very excited to be featuring images from Jonathan + Josie’s marriage celebration!!
It was only yesterday that we were hanging out with this amazing couple, documenting their beautiful wedding day + feeling the joy shared by all of their much-loved guests. Josie + Jon chose to have their wedding at the elegant Estate at Florentine Gardens. Their outdoor ceremony happened during the most exceptional spring day we’ve had all year– an absolutely perfect sunny day– just the way April weddings should be. Following their ceremony was an incredible reception, filled with great food, heartwarming speeches, and some seriously laugh-out-loud reception games. Beyond all of the fun and games, we were truly honored to be there for this couple. Not just because we photographed their autumn engagement photos a few months back, nor because we were there for Jon’s sister’s wedding 3yrs before that, but for something so much bigger. This bride + groom stood confidently as they declared their vows and entered into a covenant before their loved ones + before their God, and we are so very proud to have been a part of their wedding day.
Many thanks to the staff from the Estate at Florentine Gardens for making the day run smoothly (especially, to Jeff, Denise and Nancy), as well as a special thanks to Marvin and Carlton from Lion & Lamb Productions for a great reception.
Last but not least, congratulations to our newlyweds Josie + Jonathan!

When we first met Eileen + Frank a few months ago for their engagement session, we quickly warmed up to their easy-going personalities. There was nothing cheesy or mushy about them– their naturalness with each other was ticket to win us over right away. Fast forward four months to this past weekend– their wedding weekend– and we were fortunate enough to get a greater glimpse of the love story that this lovely couple is writing together.
Everything about their big day went off without a hiccup. All those months of planning by our newlyweds had paid off. The wedding day itinerary had plenty of cushion time, and we were so elated to see the gorgeous (yet slightly chilly) spring weather finally come upon us.
Eileen + Frank were married at the beautiful St. Cecelia Church, followed by a wedding reception at the Grand Marquis of Old Bridge. We cannot write about their wedding day without giving due credit to the bride + groom on spearheading a jampacked + exciting wedding day that was very much on-time from start to finish. Beyond their impressive punctuality, we really enjoyed watching the laughter, the tears and all the moments in between as they happened throughout the day.
Here’s a cool wedding tip we learned today: if your shoes fit a little too tight, fill up a ziploc baggy with water, place them in your shoes, and toss them in the freezer for a few hours. The frozen water should lend a little bit of stretch to your shoes. Trust us… our bride did this, and it worked.
Congratulations once again to Eileen + Frank, and thank you for letting us be there to document your marriage celebration. Don’t forget to visit our facebook page! You’ll see more images from their wedding day in the coming weeks.
