Allie & Ryan’s October 2015 NJ wedding at the Brooklake Country Club!

Dean Michaels Studio was so excited to photograph Allie & Ryan’s NJ wedding last fall! Allie and Ryan met in college in the athletic training room – Allie was a soccer player, while Ryan played football. The two met again later that weekend, and have been inseparable ever since – over five years! When Ryan proposed, he told Allie that they had to go into New York City for a work holiday party. Instead, he surprised her with brunch at Tavern on the Green and a walk through Central Park – which is where he popped the question. To top it all off, he had a friend of theirs sneakily photograph the whole proposal 🙂
On the day of their October NJ wedding, Allie got ready at her family home in Scotch Plains, NJ. Ryan got ready at the Westin Governor Morris (in Morristown, NJ). Allie and Ryan then met up again for their fall ceremony at Saint Helen’s Church (in Westfield, NJ). Finally, the newlyweds celebrated by taking some gorgeous outdoor formals before finally celebrating with their family and friends at their reception at the Brooklake Country Club (in Florham Park, NJ). Everyone here at Dean Michaels Studio absolutely loved being a part of Allie & Ryan’s wedding day, and we hope you enjoyed flipping through their wedding photos, too!

Arielle & Dan’s April 2015 NJ wedding at The Stone Terrace!

Dean Michaels Studio was thrilled to have been a part of Arielle & Dan’s spring NJ wedding last year! Our wedding photographers really enjoyed capturing the two on their special day, and we love how all of the photos came out.
Their April wedding started off with Arielle as she got ready at her family home in Hamilton, NJ. Dan got ready at his family home in Hamilton Square, NJ. From there, the two had a beautiful ceremony at Our Lady of Good Counsel Church (in Moorestown, NJ). After making everything official, the newlyweds were off again – this time to Princeton University (in Princeton, NJ), where they got some fun outdoor formals with their bridal party. Finally, they made their way to the Stone Terrace at John Henry’s (in Hamilton, NJ), where Arielle & Dan celebrated at their reception!

Jessica & Rusty’s October 2015 NJ wedding at the Newark Club has won Round 9 of our Best of Weddings 2015!

Everyone here at Dean Michaels Studio is so excited that Jessica & Rusty have won Round 9 of our Best of Weddings 2015 Facebook Contest!!! The happy couple met at the Portugal Day Festival in Newark over eight years ago – they had been friends with the same people but had never met until then! Their proposal story is just as sweet. While the couple was on vacation in Ocean City, they were walking along the beach when it started storming. Jessica, who’s afraid of lightning, went to turn around to get back to their hotel, only to find Rusty on one knee in the sand 🙂 The Newark Club, where they are having their reception, is also special to the couple – it’s where Jessica caught the bouquet and Rusty caught the garter at her mom and step-dad’s reception!!!
Their October wedding day started with Jessica as she got ready at her home in Livingston, NJ. From there, it was off to Kips Castle (in Montclair, NJ), where she met Rusty for their adorable first sight, as well as the rest of their bridal party photos. Even in the rain, the couple was up for anything, and their photos came out wonderfully! Finally, the couple made their way to The Newark Club (in Newark, NJ), where they tied the knot in a beautiful ceremony before celebrating with their family and friends at their reception.
We’re so excited to see how Jessica & Rusty will do against past round winners Ashley & Tom, Maureen & Vincent, Krista & Chris, Andrea & Anthony, Nicole & Jonathan, Rosalie & Wesley, Alisa & Stan and Gia & Alex at the end of the year for our grand prize round!

Lindsay & Frank’s March 2015 wedding at The Grove!

After shooting their engagement photos over a year ago, everyone here at Dean Michaels Studio knew that Lindsay & Frank’s wedding was going to be a lot of fun – and we weren’t disappointed! The couple met six years ago, but only started dating four years ago – they had been working together, but only made it official after Lindsay got a new job 😉 Frank decorated their house with candles and roses when he proposed – a very romantic gesture, if we do say so ourselves.
The day of their wedding, Frank got ready at the Hampton Inn & Suites Fairfield (in Fairfield, NJ), before meeting Lindsay over at The Grove (in Cedar Grove, NJ), where she was getting ready prior to both their ceremony and reception at the same location. The couple got some fantastic photos, and we’re so happy to share them!
