Crystal Ballroom Wedding

Amy and Michael

I love to have fun with my couples – even on their big day. While humor comes natural to me, I have found that it helps lessen the stress for brides and grooms as they go through their wedding day. I knew way back when I shot Amy and Michael’s engagement photos on the beach that their wedding day at the Crystal Ballroom would be super fun, and I was right! Keep reading to take a peek at their fun filled day!

Amy and Michael met on Match.com, and clearly the rest is history…history being a key phrase here. Michael loves history and has acted in Revolutionary War reenactments. How cool is that? His acting skills make for some entertaining moments for he and Amy, which I loved capturing for these two lovebirds on their big day! I adore these two for so many reasons: she crochets like me, and they both love pizza, which we all know holds a special place in my heart. Amy and Michael are full of energy and excitement, which made for a very lively big day!

The Crystal Ballroom is such an awesome place to shoot events, especially weddings. The crystal chandeliers inside the ballroom throw off incredible light during receptions, and the outdoor fountain is picture perfect – both day and night. Be sure to scroll down to see the stunning shot I got of Amy and Michael by the fountain at night – swoon! Added bonus of the Crystal Ballroom? It’s conveniently located in the Radisson Hotel in Central New Jersey.

Congratulations Amy and Michael, I am delighted that I could be a part of your special day!
