Lauren & Rich are one of those couples that you can tell just fit together– I sensed during their engagement session that their personalities complement one another really nicely and their wedding confirmed all my suspicions about what an awesome couple they are… With the support of their totally sweet families I know they will enjoy a truly amazing life together. Lauren looked simply stunning in the beautiful lace gown she wore– I hadn’t seen a dress design like this before, maybe ever– it was so unique and pretty I could hardly get over it. Both creatives (Lauren is an artist and Rich an architect!), they planned a lovely wedding in a visually rich environment. Since their wedding was at Liberty House in Jersey City we took the opportunity to shoot the couple’s first look and portraits in and around the very cool old train station (not in use, thus all the overgrown tracks in the backgrounds etc) right down the street by the water… I loved being able to do family portraits with the river and NYC in the distant background and on a hot day it was nice and breezy down there too. The ceremony was outside in a lovely area where I was able to get the skyline up in the distance, and during the reception we were able to take advantage of the pretty views and set up an ‘open air photobooth’ out on the terrace– complete with an array of fun props that Lauren & Rich had gathered for their guests to take pictures with. If you’re looking for a reception spot with great service (they had one of the most helpful and on-top-of-it Maitre D’s I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with!), ample space and pretty views of the city, Liberty House has it all and I definitely hope to shoot there again! Congratulations to Lauren & Rich on a gorgeous wedding– everyone had a marvelous time and it shows in the photos!
