Alyssa & Dean’s Spring Wedding at Clark’s Landing

Alyssa and Dean’s Spring wedding at Clarks Landing was a stunning event!

Our day started in two different states. While the couple currently lives in Manhatten, Alyssa hails from Staten Island and Dean is from the square-mile town of Dunellen in New Jersey. They both got ready in their respected childhood homes across state lines. Getting ready is one of our favorite times of the day to shoot; it is fun to capture all the energy and excitement before the couple sees each other for the first time. Alyssa wore a beautiful Calla Blanche dress that we instantly became obsessed with! Between the dress, her hair in perfect waves, her glamorous makeup, and her sparkling Louboutins Alyssa looked like she walked right out of a bridal magazine.

Forgoing a first-look, Alyssa and Dean decided to see each other for the first time at the aisle. Their ceremony was held at Saint Joseph- Saint Thomas Church where the couple was congratulated with a receiving line of bubbles! Afterward, we headed to the majestic Monmouth University. The school’s Woodrow Wilson Hall always makes for some dramatic and romantic photographs; we absolutely love to shoot there! March can be a tricky month to get married in, the weather can be so unpredictable. Luckily for Alyssa and Dean, Spring had finally started to arrive making the day pleasantly warm with only a touch of cloudy skies. With the weather cooperating we were able to snag a few shots outside of the university that really accentuated the bride’s flowing train.

The reception was held at one of our all-time favorite venues, Clarks Landing Yacht Club. A trend we have noticed for 2018 is that our couples know how to have a good time! Dean’s father played piano during cocktail hour, his brother’s read through Dean’s high school diary during their speech, and you better believe that dance floor was popping!! We were so honored to be a part of Alyssa and Dean’s big day and we wish them years and years of health and happiness together!
