Dina + Alex = Married!

Spring Lake, New Jersey – The Mill:

You recently saw the SNEAK PEEK of Dina & Alex’s wedding and after working on the photos for the past few weeks I finished last night!

I was so excited to share the photos today and hear their thoughts.

I really enjoyed spending the day with Dina and Alex with the help of my lovely friend and assistant for the day – Guitree (Thanks G!!).

*PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE Click on the photos to view them larger*

We started the day at the salon:

Then we went back to the hotel so Dina could get her make-up done and get dressed.

I couldn’t decide which I loved most for the RING shots.

I think my favorite is the one featured below but I wanted to share the others too:



Alex was a great sport about posing for his “getting ready” shots.

I always love the “detail” shots so you can remember every special thing about the day!

Dina’s sister, Ilene, helping Dina get ready for the big moment!

Alex patiently waits for Dina to be ready…

A lil sun flare as we headed off to the Spring Lake Beach.

Dina and Alex’s dog Keena is an important part of their life and Alex’s and brother in law made it possible to include Keena in a few photos of their special day.

She was so well-behaved and had so many different expressions in the photos I took of her that it made me smile and think about my own buddy, Lucas, and how important he is to me.

I love this moment with “the family.”

I loved how the wind was blowing the veil.



I can’t get enough of this moment!

Look at how he’s looking at her!

We arrived at The Mill…

The ceremony…

I took a chance here getting a silhouette with the wide angle lens.  It turned out how I had hoped!

You can’t beat the sun flaring through the huge windows behind them making this photo possible!

A few quiet moments before we headed into the reception.

Check out the cake topper!  Keena!

First Dance goodness.

Sweeter than sugar!

And the lovely friend who put Dina and I together, Ilene, my sorority sister from my days at Rider University.

Thanks Ilene for connecting us!

A beautiful end to a beautiful night!

Dina - BEAUTIFUL!!!! I loved seeing what photos made the blog. It really made my selection a tad bit easier. Gave me a different perspective on some of them :) I love all the different angles, textures and colors in finishings you used. So many choices. It ‘s going to be very challenging on picking a few for the album. I agree…you have outdone yourself. BRAVO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

effiemay - make that yowsers…lol!! I’m not sure how that’s spelled…I need a dictionary open at all time I guess. :)

April 23, 2009 - 9:34 pm

effiemay - Yowers… they.are.awesome

Each and every one…she’s gonna have a really tough time choosing what to print that’s for sure!!

If I had to pick a fav it would be the last one, only because I love the photojournalist look…it’s my favorite style of photography.

You’ve really out done yourself here Jen!!
