Genevieve & Brian are just a dream to work with!  Getting to capture their One Atlantic Events wedding was such an honor, but the biggest honor was getting to know them both!  The love they have for one another, on top of the love they have for their family and friends is so heart-warming.  These two are the real deal, and we hope to capture many more beautiful moments for them in the future!

Romantic Details for a Chic, Modern Bride

From capturing the paper suite created by Stephanie Somodi, to a gorgeous Martina Liana gown, to her Badgley Mischka shoes and breathtaking florals designed by The Manic Botanic – we knew this day was off to an epic start!

The Bride Getting Ready at Caesar’s Hotel – Atlantic City

As I told Genevieve’s mom, when we walk into a bridal suite filled with laughter and pure joy, we know it’s about to be a fabulous day!

The Story of Genevieve & Brian

Gen and Brian met one another at a fraternity party at Monmouth University. Since she was going to school for business and him for criminal justice, they hadn’t really crossed paths until then! They talked that night, and well, as they say, the rest is history!  Their love only grew from there!  In the fall of 2018, Brian and Gen visited the Philadelphia Museum of Art, and along WaterWorks behind the museum, at the gazebo, Brian asked Gen to be his wife!  How romantic!!

A First Look at Kennedy Plaza

We were trying to think of a different location for Genevieve & Brian’s first look. Erin from One Atlantic suggested Kennedy Plaza, and we couldn’t have been happier with the results!  Such a beautiful spot with the most PERFECT afternoon light!

A Beautiful Ceremony Overlooking the Ocean at One Atlantic

Brian’s childhood friend Joe was their officiant for their ceremony. He did such a wonderful job capturing them as a couple for everyone to witness!  Gen & Brian’s vows were perfect because they had some laughter mixed with a few tears. They even included their moms in a sand ceremony.

A Fun and Memorable One Atlantic Events Wedding Reception

One Atlantic Events never disappoints!  To say we love it there would be an understatement!  From the views, to the staff, to the food, it is a dream wedding venue for any couple who wants to celebrate above the Atlantic Ocean!  Plus, our favorite DJ Sam Catrambone from Center Stage Entertainment kept the guests dancing the entire night!  What a perfect day!

We first met Amanda & Marc at their Sassafras River Engagement Session, and it was like we’ve known them forever.  They made our job easy and fun!  So, of course, that made us look forward to their One Atlantic Events Wedding so so so much!!  I could not have asked for a more perfect day for them!  Big shout out to my bestie Caitlin for not only being an amazing 3rd shooter, but also the best bride attendant/snack getter/make me drink water when she knows I haven’t/ear to listen/etc. <3 

Bride Getting Ready at Caesar’s Atlantic City

Amanda had 16 bridesmaids. Needless to say, they all couldn’t get ready in a small hotel room!  So, they were able to use one of Caesar’s Hospitality Suites to get pampered by Bella Angel Hair & Makeup!  Her mom and MOH helped her to get dressed, and she did a first look with her Dad and then her Bridesmaids!

Groom Getting Ready at Bally’s Atlantic City

Meanwhile, Marc was getting ready with his family over at Bally’s.  It’s convenient, since its right next door to Caesars, but far enough away that we didnt have to worry about him and Amanda crossing paths throughout the morning!

The Story of Amanda and Marc

Over a decade ago, Amanda met Marc at a party being thrown by her cousins friend.  Should have Amanda been at this party?  Probably not, since she was grounded!  However, for some reason, her parents allowed her to go, since she was going with her cousin.  Had they of said no, I may not be writing this blog post right now!  That evening, these two met, fell in love, and the rest, they say, is history!

The Proposal – July 3rd, 2016

It was just like any other typical Fourth of July weekend getaway, or so Amanda thought!  After finding coverage for work, Marc and Amanda met up with her sorority sisters and headed down to her parent’s vacation home along the Sassafras River. The first few days consisted of typical holiday festivities – boating eating, jet skiing, drinking. On Saturday, July 2nd, while splashing around on huge inflatable floats, Amanda said to Marc “This would be the perfect weekend for you to propose to me!” This was nothing out of the ordinary for Amanda to say. But before Marc could say anything, her mom jumped in and said to stop pressuring him or it will never happen!  Amanda laughed it off and floated away with her sorority sisters. Little did she know everyone started panicking that she knew what was going to happen the next day!

On July 3rd, Amanda’s parents informed her that her Aunt wanted them all to come over to her private beach that night to watch the sunset.  Again, this was nothing out of the ordinary, because watching the sunset on her beach was a routine activity in her community!  After a few instances that left them rushing to get to her aunts house before sunset, they were finally there!  Marc kept saying “I don’t know if we’re going to get to see a sunset tonight because of how cloudy it is.” Amanda said “Who cares, we are here with everyone, have a beer and have fun!”  She could not figure out what was causing him to be uptight and aggravated about the sunset.

After a little while of standing and mingling, Marc asked her to come down onto the beach to take a photo with him. So, each one of her family and friends stood in a line as her and Marc struck a pose for a photo.  Little did she know, each of their phones were about to record a moment that would change their lives forever.  Marc turned to face Amanda and said “While I have you here…” and got down on one knee.  Marc told her she was his everything, and without hesitation, Amanda said “Put it on!” haha!  Amanda’s aunt was able to capture this picture perfect moment with the pinks and oranges of a beautiful sunset behind them!

First Look & Bride and Groom Portraits on the Beach

First looks give us ALL the heart eyes!  Just check out Marc’s reaction to seeing Amanda for the first time! Swoon!

A Lovely One Atlantic Events Wedding

A Lovely One Atlantic Events Wedding

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!

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!!
