There were sunflowers all around for Maria and Stephen’s festive October New Jersey wedding. Our photographers at NJ’s best wedding photography – Dean Michaels Studio first spent the morning, respectively, with the bride at her parent’s home and the groom at his parent’s home, both in Staten Island, NY. Then it was off to the ceremony at Saint Teresa’s Parish (also in Staten Island), followed closely by the happy couple’s formals at Lamberts Castle in Paterson, NJ. We ended the night, surrounded by Stephen and Maria’s friends and family at their reception at The Venetian in Garfield, NJ, and we were so excited to have been able to spend the day capturing the moments of such a loving couple.

Our wedding photographers here at Dean Michaels Studio – the best NJ wedding photography were so excited to hear that Dianna and Anthony had won the third round of our Best of Weddings Facebook Competition! We had so much fun with this couple this past May on their wedding day, and they have so many great photos to show for it
Starting off the day at Dianna’s home in Staten Island, NY, then off to the ceremony at Saint Charles Church (also in Staten Island), and then with a quick stop to Grandma’s house (also in Staten Island) before heading off to the couple’s reception at the Florentine Gardens in Rivervale, NJ, it was a busy day filled with lots of love and excitement. With nearly 150 likes on their Facebook sampler (congratulations, again!), they blew the rest of the competition out of the water, and we’re so happy we’re able to share their wedding photos with you (don’t forget to check out their Facebook album either); everyone here at Dean Michaels Studio can’t wait to see them at the end of the year up against Kate & Chad and Erin & Tim!
Be sure to check back on Tuesday to see the start of round 4, and congratulations again to Dianna and Anthony!

Harry and Kelly’s super enthusiastic NJ wedding was such a joy to shoot – the weather was gorgeous, everyone was having fun, with their wedding photos definitely showcasing that [:
Starting with those gorgeous shots at Kelly’s family home and then outside the ceremony at Saint Teresa’s in Summit, New Jersey, and finishing with that great shot of Kelly and Harry surrounded by friends and family at the reception in the Basking Ridge Country Club in Basking Ridge, New Jersey, this wedding was definitely one of our favorites of the last year.

Although the nice weather suddenly turned our friends upstate into occupants of a winter wonderland yesterday, looking at photos like this definitely get us back into the spring spirit. Check out our newest photo album on Facebook - if the picture above can’t get you in the April-(snow) showers-bring-May-flowers mood, than the photos we chose from Jessica and David’s blissful nuptials at Macaluso’s in Hawthorne, New Jersey definitely will!
