Marisa & Brian’s June 2014 wedding at the South Gate Manor!!!

Dean Michaels Studio really enjoyed being a part of Marisa & Brian’s June 2014 wedding day earlier this summer! The bride and her girls got ready at the Molly Pitcher Inn (in Red Bank, NJ), while the groom and his guys were at the Radisson Hotel Freehold (in Freehold, NJ). It wasn’t too long before the duo met up again at the altar for their Saint James Church ceremony (also in Red Bank). After that, the newlyweds celebrated their marriage at a beautiful reception at the South Gate Manor (also in Freehold). We knew after their engagement shoot last year that their wedding photos would be awesome, and we definitely weren’t disappointed – scroll down to see for yourself!
