Love is when two people touch each other’s soul. Love is honesty and trust. Love is helping one another. Love is mutual respect for one another. Love means that differences can be worked out. Love is reaching your dreams together. Love is the connection of two hearts. Upon meeting Alyssa and Max for the first time I could tell immediately how much they loved each other. Two truly amazing people. The story be told that after not seeing each other for a few years they met again one day in a WAWA where some sparks lighted and it began their love journey together. I am so honored to have had the opportunity to capture their love on their wedding day.
Guest who chose to stay the weekend met at the Stockton Seaview Hotel , where they were greeted with an itinerary of the weekend. The wedding day started out in the bridal suite where Alyssa, her mother, the grooms mother and her girls got ready. There was singing, dancing, laughing, crying and lots of love going on in that room. I shot details of her day including her grandma shoes in which many in the family have worn on their wedding day. After Alyssa got dressed and her Dad saw her for the first time we headed down to the Terrace so that Alyssa and Max could exchange cards and have their “first look”. Then we headed to the waiting room to for the signing of the Ketubah, where close family and bridal party looked on. The ceremony, which hosted both, Rabi and Priest, took place on the Bayview Terrace in the Stockton Hotel, where many family and friends gathered to see them exchange vows. After the ceremony guest enjoyed a cocktail hour held on the terrace while formal pictures where taken of the bride and groom. Later on the reception was held in the Bayview Ballroom. Together with my second shooter, Marisa Mazziotta we had an awesome time documenting an amazing wedding.
