Melissa and Garrett met while in Ramapo College. After dating on and off for about 2 years, Garrett graduated and began working for an oil company down in the Gulf of Mexico. Over the next year, he would fly back and forth to Jersey to visit her. One trip, he came up early and asked Melissa’s parents for her hand in marriage. Garrett surprised Melissa at her front door and proposed..and of course she said yes.
The morning of the wedding, Melissa’s dad was so sweet..he helped us with photographing her dress and he put all of Melissa’s jewelry on her. Garrett’s mom was there too and was trying to keep the boys on schedule over the phone LOL
Their wedding was held at the beautiful Eagle Ridge Golf Club. They had a first look on the grounds and we captured some stunning images of the bride and groom and their super laid back bridal party. Everyone was in such a good mood and was so calm, we even finished up pictures early and they had time kick back and relax before the ceremony. After they said “I Do” overlooking the golf course, we photographed their family portraits. Man, this was the largest family picture I had ever taken! Over 60 people..and that’s just Melissa’s dad’s side!!! Everyone at this wedding was so kind to us, even the extended family and friends. During the reception we snuck outside for an amazing sunset..I just love these images! Later in the night, Melissa changed into a red dress for the traditional Chinese tea ceremony. Afterwards was mostly dancing and mingling and the night ended with a pretty funny cake smash 🙂
