To get to be there and capture the moment when a proposal ends with a YES! is an absolute privilege! When that couple also chooses you to capture the day that they say their I Do’s, that is an absolute HONOR! Ryan has known Rocco since attending Rowan University together. We have known Kait since the day that Rocco proposed to her in Battery Park in New York City! We had the pleasure of seeing them again for another engagement session in Wildwood last July 4th weekend. Since then, they have become the kind of friends that we can sit and chat with at Cheesecake Factory for over 3 hours, and not realize its been that long!
I feel like their wedding arrived so quickly! I remember getting the text when they booked the venue! As they continued to choose their remaining vendors, we couldn’t have been more excited! d

Their wedding day began with Rocco and Kait both getting ready at the Stockton Seaview Hotel. The rooms at the Seaview are the perfect size for a bridal party to hang out while each person gets their hair and makeup done. It is also the perfect place to block out rooms if you’re having your wedding at The Carriage House. Rocco and Kait wrote one another love letters to read before seeing each another at The Carriage House. Needless to say, I (Tami) wound up crying while Kait read her letter out loud! I am such a sucker for these moments, which is why I love my job SO much! Since their darling pup Sage could not be with them on the wedding day, Kait had cufflinks made for Rocco with Sage’s photo on them! Those little moments when the mother of the bride is so happy for her baby girl! We were so excited when Rocco and Kait decided to do a First Look. This gave us ample time to capture so many more photos than normal. The balcony was the perfect spot for Rocco and Kait to see each other for the first time! Rocco was so excited to see how beautiful Kait looked! These two could not stop smiling at each other! It was contagious! Didn’t Kait look stunning in her Sottero & Midgley dress?! Got to love a windy day! Rocco looking rather dapper himself. We could not thank them enough for this sign. To have an unplugged ceremony means that all of your guests will be in the moment. Instead of looking at the backs of their smart phones as you walk down the aisle, you will see each of their smiling faces. We love when guests are truly present in the moment as our couple says their vows and commit to one another always and forever. Chaplain Patrick was the perfect choice for Rocco and Kait to officiate their wedding. The ceremonies that he performs are always so personal. There’s laughter, tears and so much love. I love how Kait re-created their proposal spot in the foyer of The Carriage House. EBE Dreamtime was an absolute blast! When couples book bands, we know that their dance floor will be FULL the entire night!
