Lauren & Mike had such an elegant reception for their Woodcliff Lake Hilton wedding. They were both so calm and ready as their day began, and each were quite emotional as they ready cards from one another before their First Look. Their full church ceremony was grand and traditional.
A great highlight was the amazing talent of their entertainment, Chris D’Amico Entertainment. So multi-talented, great signing and musicianship, a rare treat for a wedding.
The boys of the wedding were extra handsome in their matching Converse. They were the only ones who were allowed to wear them, but much needed for their boundless energy.
Mike waited calmly before getting to the First Look to see his gorgeous soon-to-be wife Lauren.
As her Bridesmaids looked out the window to the beautiful lake below, I wondered what was going through Lauren’s mind as she waited for the First Look.
All smiles as Lauren is escorted by her Dad to Mike. Evidence that the First Look never has to compete with the excitement of walking down the aisle. That long walk has just as much impact.
Lauren can’t contain her joy as she and Mike are about to share their official first kiss as Husband and Wife.
This was a group ready for anything!
Rings are THE most important symbols of the union, of the wedding day. Shooting rings creatively is always a new experience for each wedding, one of my favorite tasks of every wedding.
I love this shot of Mike’s sneak attack kiss, because he just had to, and Lauren genuinely enjoyed being surprised. What a beautiful couple.
