Seah and Robert’s incredible wedding celebration is finally on the blog! A few short days ago, these wonderful couple tied the knot and officially became husband and wife.
Vibrant colors and cultural traditions flowed throughout this day, and we sincerely wished the day hadn’t ended. The bride and groom crafted such a nice wedding day schedule (read: well-planned with lots of time devoted to photography) in order to accommodate plenty of time for portraits. We had a brief morning photo session all throughout the grounds of the World of Wings… perhaps most spectacularly, we visited the Atrium that contained a live butterfly exhibit. Afterwards, we continued on to a late afternoon ceremony at The Church of the Atonement in Tenafly, NJ. The rest of the evening including a beautiful Korean tea ceremony and topped off the evening with a grand reception at the World of Wings.
A very special thanks to fellow photographer Paul Kim of Bōm Photography for second shooting / assisting in translations for this one!

We are incredibly excited to showcase some images from a very recent wedding. Suzy + Andrew’s big day was bursting with energy, emotion and much anticipation. Just 11 months earlier, this awesome couple had celebrated their engagement in Weehawken, NJ. This past weekend, we were honored to join them as they exchanged vows + celebrated in style.
From start to finish, the bridal party (particularly, the bridesmaids) decided any random moment was a good time to dance. Singing, dancing, and a very unique form of vocalic cheering soon became the theme of the day (we’ve only seen this cheering at Arabic language weddings…YouTube it). Beyond the fun and laughter, we could sense how supportive and close the bridal party was with the bride and groom.. in the end, that made our job that much more enjoyable.
Suzy + Andrew’s wedding ceremony took place at Grace Episcopal Church, followed by a reception at the very elegant Berkeley Oceanfront Hotel in Asbury Park. Sandwiched between these two events, we took a visit to the history Asbury Park Casino for some portraits.
As always, it’s difficult to point out our favorite aspects from the day. For sure, some unforgettable moments include the ultra-fun[ny] bridal party, the bride’s stunning veil, the ringbearers’ entrance photo, and all the crazy dance floor moves that ensued.
Congratulations once again to our newest newlyweds, and we hope you all take the time and enjoy the photos below. More images can be seen on our facebook page here -> Dreamlite Photograph’s Facebook Page <-
While documenting the wedding day is our job, our favorite parts are really the little moments in between. Often times, it’s these very moments that we get so excited about witnessing. For everyone that knows Nicky, she’s a no-holds-bar-in-your-face-gets-the-job-done kind of woman…(Jon’s allowed to write this in our blogpost– Nicky use to be Jon’s boss when they worked together at New Horizons in Autism) But on her big day at the Valley Regency, she was all tears.
One of our favorite moments below is when her older brother escorted her down the aisle. As they slowly passed our cameras, it was really hard not to get blurry eyed by that moment, knowing how special that day (and that walk) was for our bride. Another beautiful part of the day took place during the reception. Nicky included two special ‘first dances’ with two of her students from the school… for all the staff/friends/family, this was really precious to watch.
If we gave out trophies for “guest of the year”, we would certainly be paying a hefty price to ship this one out. One of our brides’ sisters couldn’t make it to the wedding, as she was in Korea. So she did what any loving sister would do- Skype into the wedding (she joined in for a few group photos, as well as the photobooth, too).
As for all the other moments? Best man intermittently recording the wedding ceremony with a pocket cam, ring bearer taking a peek at the rings he just gave up, nephew running through the dance floor during the first dance, and the bouquet dodging??… yes, we included all those images, too.
Congratulations once again to Vlade + Nicky on their new marriage, and we thank you two for allowing us to be a part of it all.
