Meghan & Christopher’s July 2014 wedding at the Westmount Country Club!

Dean Michaels Studio had such a wonderful time capturing Meghan & Christopher’s July wedding!!! Our New Jersey wedding photographers started out the day with Meghan as she completed her bridal prep at her home in Elmwood Park, NJ, while Chris got ready at his home in Garfield, NJ. From there, the duo made it official at a beautiful ceremony at Saint Leo’s Church (also in Elmwood Park), before heading out to Lamberts Castle (in Paterson, NJ) for some formals with their bridal party. After that, we finished off the night with the couple as they celebrated at their Westmount Country Club (in Woodland Park, NJ) reception.
Looking for more awesome photos? Be sure to check out their engagement portrait, too!

How he proposed: According to Meghan, “On December 15, 2012, we went to New York City to see the [Rockefeller Christmas] tree with both of our parents and my brother. We went as close to the tree as possible, and then Christopher asked me to marry him!” Such a great story :D

After shooting their gorgeous engagement portrait last year, Dean Michaels Studio is so excited to share Tara and Patrick’s stunning summer wedding! Our New Jersey wedding photographers were with Tara as she got ready at her family’s home in Succasunna, NJ, and we followed the bride-to-be as she made her way to the Westmount Country Club (in Woodland Park, NJ) where she reunited with her groom for both their ceremony and reception.

Colleen & Kenny’s October 2014 engagement shoot in New York City!

Our engagement photographers here at Dean Michaels Studio absolutely loved spending the day with Colleen and Kenny in New York City earlier this month for their portrait! After walking around the city grabbing some great photos, we finished the day off with the couple at Il Vagabondo, one of their favorite restaurants, for a glass of wine and a game of bocce. We’re so happy to share their engagement shoot with everyone, and can’t wait for their upcoming September 2015 wedding at The Grand Colonial (in Hampton, NJ).
