Sam’s March 2014 Bar Mitzvah at Congregation B’Nai Israel, Vegas NJ, and The Stone House!

Dean Michaels Studio was so excited to be a part of Sam’s multi-day celebration of his bar mitzvah earlier this spring! Our New Jersey event photographers captured the ceremony at the Fairlawn Jewish Center/Congregation B’Nai Israel (in Fair Lawn, NJ), before taking some great photos with his family at the Stone House at Stirling Ridge (in Warren, NJ) and capturing the birthday boy having fun with his friends at Vegas NJ (in Randolph, NJ). We’re so happy to share these fantastic images with everyone!

Lauren and Joseph were married in November 2013, where the bride got ready at her home in Pompton Lakes, NJ!

-We’ll start off with a fun article from The Offbeat Bride, which shares an interesting view take on Why [You Should] Say Goodbye To The Wedding Photo Checklist; they bring up some good points, and we thought it was an interesting point of view to share!
-Dean Michaels Studio loves a good Pinterest page (if you couldn’t tell!), so we loved The Bridal Party’s feature on one of their newest boards!
-Finally, we came across this list of 20 Hotels You Must Absolutely Visit from APlus.com – if you haven’t booked your honeymoon yet (or are just in need of a really nice vacation view), definitely give these places a look!
