Leanne & Gautam celebrated with family and friends at their 3rd wedding! Yes these guys have quite a unique story- they were married exactly 2 months prior on 12.14.13 in Texas where they had an intimate traditional American ceremony and then a traditional Indian ceremony honoring Gautam’s heritage. So that brings us to wedding number 3! They kept the festivities going with a reception for their loved ones in NJ – lemme tell you these people really know how to party! They had fire, bollywood dancers, a photobooth and they even showed the film from their TX ceremony to share with everyone in attendance. Thank you so much Leanne and Gautam for inviting me to capture the gorgeous day!

Congratulations Heather and Al!! This was an especially exciting wedding for me since the bride is a close friend of mine and my former roommate! Heather and Al met in High School while in the band program. He was a drummer and she played clarinet. After sharing 9 years of their lives together they said “I do” in front of their closest friends and family in the town the both grew up & fell in love in.
Enjoy a few favorites from their beautiful fall wedding!
A big thank you to Tatiana Rodriguez and Jon Tan for shooting on my behalf while I was busy playing bridesmaid!
Congrats Dave and Caitlyn!!! These two met when Caitlyn was only 14 and she injured her foot. As fate would have it, Dave was working that night in the hospital along with her brother, Ryan. They got to know each other as the years went on; finding great listeners in each other. When Dave decided he was going to ask Caitlyn to be his wife he knew it had to be something special. Her whole family was on a cruise and it was formal night. The girls were getting all gussied up and Dave walks into Caitlyn’s room to head down for dinner. She turns around and say’s “how do I look?” the question every guys fears! His response? “You look beautiful” (Good answer, man!) “but you’d look even more beautiful with this…” And the rest is history :)
Enjoy some of my favorites from their day!
Congratulations Danielle & Brad!! This adorable couple met sophomore year at Seton Hall. At first Danielle was not interested but finally agreed to a first date. She accidentally drank a huge cup of coffee before they met up for their date… at a coffee shop. Despite the caffeine rush Danielle says she was shy and let him to all the talking. Whatever he said it worked; a few years later Brad proposed on Danielle’s 25th birthday and she had no idea!

Congratulations Justin & Carol! They tied the knot in front of their closest family and friends overlooking Lake Nelson in Piscataway, NJ. These two love birds met in college at Hofstra University as undergrads. She was a sophomore, he was a senior. Fast forward to their engagement, Justin very carefully planned out how he would ask Carol to be his wife, even drove 7 hours to plant the ring at a geocache site where she would later find it. Now that’s love!
