Katherine & Brett’s July 2014 wedding at The Venetian!

Dean Michaels Studio had a wonderful time spending the day last July capturing Katherine & Brett’s wedding! After their gorgeous engagement portrait last year, we were definitely excited to see what the couple came up with for their wedding, and we weren’t disappointed :) The bride got ready at her home in Park Ridge, NJ, while the groom got ready at the Best Western Fairfield (in Fairfield, NJ). It wasn’t too long before the two were exchanging vows at a stunning ceremony at the Church of the Presentation (in Upper Saddle River, NJ) before heading over to celebrate the rest of the night at their reception at the Venetian (in Garfield, NJ).

Maria & Matthew’s August 2014 wedding at the Park Savoy!!!

After capturing Maria & Matthew’s engagement portrait earlier this year, Dean Michaels Studio couldn’t wait to be a part of their August wedding day! Our NJ wedding photographers were with Maria as she got ready with her bridesmaids at the Westin Governor Morris (in Morristown, NJ), while Matthew got ready with his groomsmen in Denville, NJ. The couple then exchanged vows at a wonderful ceremony at Holy Family Church (in Florham Park, NJ), before taking some adorable formal shots with their bridal party prior to the reception at The Park Savoy (also in Florham Park). We couldn’t wait to share their images after seeing how great they came out, and we hope you think so too!

Carla & Robert’s August 2014 wedding at the Westmount Country Club!!!

Carla & Robert’s August 2014 wedding was so much fun for Dean Michaels Studio to be a part of!!! Our New Jersey wedding photographers were with the bride as she got ready at the Best Western Fairfield (in Fairfield, NJ), before heading over to the Westmount Country Club (in Woodland Park, NJ), where she surprised her groom outside with a lovely first sight. After some formals, it was off to both the ceremony and the reception (all at the Westmount), and Dean Michaels Studio was there to capture every moment!
