I woke up on Friday knowing we had Kat and Brent's wedding to shoot and the first thing I thought was how lucky she was the weather was going to hold out. All week we were looking at the reports and praying that the rain that has been going on all week would hold out for just today and Sunday ( we had another wedding on Sunday too). OMG did our prayers got answered. Not only was there no rain but there wasn't a cloud to be seen in the sky. What a perfect day for a wedding!!!! The day started like clockwork, Both of them decided to get ready at the same hotel, The Crown Plaza, Fairfield, NJ. So of course I went to Kat and Jerry went to Brent.
Jerry felt like he was at a frat house. The boys all getting ready for their big reveal to Brent. Little does he know they had a surprise for him at the reception during their entrance. So they were all goofing around talking about hockey and trying to keep everything hush hush. They all looked so handsome in their suits with matching vests from Men's Warehouse.
The girls were all so elegant. No horseplay here. It was breathtaking walking into the room and seeing kat sitting there by the window just calmly getting her hair and makeup done by Joanna Dziobek and everyone enjoying the music from from the movie Sister Act 2 playing on the TV. I remember her saying that the "Hymn Joyful Joyful "was her favorite. And the girls were all giggling away and each of them were admiring how their dresses made them look like they are floating. We had known one the bridesmaid from another wedding last year so it was like meeting up with an old friend again. What fun to see familiar faces again while working. When Kat was done dressing and Jerry & I saw her WOW she looked like she just stepped out of a magazine shoot. Her dress from Bridals by Roma was stunning on her. Her mom & dad couldn’t stop crying when they first saw her.
They're ceremony was picture perfect. They chose to have a formal church wedding at Our Lady of good Counsel, Pompton Plains, NJ. What a beautiful service. The Monsignor was a riot. I found out later that he had married her parents and come out of retirement to marry Kat & Brent today. I thought that was so sweet.
The Reception was held at the Tides Estate, North Haldon, NJ. I always love working here. The gardens here were made for photographs. From the gazebos to the brick walkways and the stone patio downstairs with this gorgeous iron gate. Every time I work there we have a good time. Oh bet you were wondering the surprise everyone had for Brent at the reception. The Groomsmen starting the evening with an entrance to die for. They all changed into personalized Hockey jerseys and the bride and groom entered into a barrage of cheers and chants. I thought I was in the middle of the arena again.
What a fun way to end a perfect day. Hope you enjoy the photos.
