Stephanie & Ross… we absolutely adore these two! Just hanging out with them for a little bit, you KNOW that these two were meant for one another! We had the pleasure of meeting with them over a coffee at Starbucks, then got to know them even more during their Central Park engagement, and from then on, we KNEW that their One Atlantic Events Wedding would be one for the books!

Beautiful, Sweet Details for a Classic Bride

When I show up at the getting ready location, and the bride has everything ready for me to start taking detail shots, you know its gonna be a good day!  Not only was everything in the room and ready to go, but she had extra fabric, ribbon and details galore!  Stephanie even got her bridesmaids monogrammed lipsticks!  That was a first that I’ve ever seen that!  So awesome!

Stephanie Getting Ready at the Hard Rock Hotel, Atlantic City

Stephanie and her bridesmaids were glammed up by Metemophosis New York!  After Stephanie looked perfect, her mom and her maid of honor helped her get into her gorgeous Mikaella Bridal Dress! I loved it so much!!  But I may be partial, because I had a Mikaella dress as my wedding dress too!

A First Look with Stephanie & her Dad

Have I mentioned lately how much I LOOOOOOOVE Daddy-Daughter first looks?!  A brides mom normally gets to be a big part of helping her pick out her dress, and get her into her dress, so now Dad gets to be surprised and see his little girl as a bride!!

The Story of Stephanie & Ross

In her words… “We met in April 2012 on a Wednesday night at a bar In Atlanta, a month before we both graduated college. He went to Georgia Tech and had a job in Atlanta, and I went to Emory and was deciding where to go to law school (either St Louis or NYC). By the way, I chose NYC. Ross and I both grew up in the suburbs of NYC, so I was hopeful that he would eventually come back home. And he did about a year later!  In March of this year (2018), he proposed to me in Central Park on a Monday evening. He made up a story about how he was running in the park and didn’t have any identification, so I had to come rescue him. I left work early and rushed to the park. I found him by his favorite lake in a suit. I was so surprised! He even picked out the perfect ring!”

First Look & Bride and Groom Portraits at the Hard Rock Hotel Beach, Atlantic City

The boardwalk may have been filled with people, but all you could really see were Stephanie & Ross!  Her beautiful white dress and dreamy veil walking towards him… as the butterflies grew!  What a sweet moment between these two!  After their hugs, kisses and “I love you’s”, we walked down to the beach for their photos!

Bridal Party Portraits on the Beach at the Hard Rock Hotel

Ketubah Signing at One Atlantic Events

I love all of the Jewish traditions!  One of those include the Ketubah signing!  This is a very special, private moment for the couple, surrounded by their witnesses and closest family!

A Sentimental Jewish Ceremony at One Atlantic Events

Ross and Stephanie stood under the beautiful huppah, along with their parents and Rabbi, and vowed forever to each other. With little glances, smiles, and some laughter, these two sealed it with a kiss (and breaking of the glass!) and became husband and wife!!
