In November of last year, I had the opportunity to photograph this beautiful couple's vow renewal and it was such a simple, romantic, important day. I adore vow renewals. No matter if it's after a year, after 5 years, 35 years since a couple has said "I do"-it's always nice to take a day and relive that time in your life when you first spoke those vows to each other on your wedding day.

Crystal Ballroom Wedding Photographer | Freehold, NJ

Heather and Anthony's wedding was a beautiful example of a summer wedding. Even when it rained, Heather's "it is what it is" attitude made, what could have been a damper on her day, only a more positive experience. And isn't it known to be good luck if it rains on your wedding day? Well, Heather and Anthony, your luck will last a lifetime.

They are unbelievably magnificent together. I'll never forget photographing them and thinking to myself how sweet their love is, how silly their love is-unaffected by anyone else in the room, while they were together.

Heather and Anthony's wedding was held at The Crystal Ballroom, which is owned by Hotels Unlimited, in Howell, New Jersey. It's always a pleasure working with The Crystal Ballroom-their staff is so wonderful, accommodating and pleasant. They catered to Heather, Anthony, their family and all of their guests and that's really important when choosing the perfect vendor for your wedding. You want to be able to find a location that makes you feel like part of the family, not just another name in a bride's planner.

 

Heather and Anthony's style was elegant romanticism submerged in navy, blushes, and golds. The bride's dress, by Madison James, hugged her frame seamlessly as she complimented her groom's clean-lined navy tuxedo, by Stephen Geoffrey. Details in a wedding, whether it be in the ceremony or reception make the experience. Heather and Anthony's romantic details tied their personal style and their couple style together exquisitely.

 

What I adored also about Heather and Anthony's wedding, was how absolutely welcoming their family was; especially Anthony's father. So super nice! He kept asking Michael and me if we needed anything and if we were alright. I've said this before, when a couple and their families make you feel like one of them, it makes the entire experience even better.

 

Here's to forever, Heather & Anthony-
