Janine + Chris • Sunset Ballroom at Jack Baker's • Point Pleasant Beach • New Jersey Wedding Photographer

I cried probably at every wedding I either photographed or attended as a guest.
Janine + Chris' day was no exception! Their love is so genuine and so profound it is hard to believe two people can be this much in love!

You may remember their romantic lakeside engagement session last year.
Their wedding was inspired by The Great Gatsby and had all the elements of that era- the feathers, the sequins and pearls, and the glamour!

Janine wore this absolutely stunning gown by Kitty Chen Couture, while Chris looked dapper in his tuxedo by Ike Behar Evening featuring a shawl collar jacket trimmed in black satin.

After getting ready at The White Sands Oceanfront Hotel we all headed to The Sunset Ballroom at Jack Baker's where the ceremony and reception took place.

Janine and Chris exchanged their own vows in front of their families and friends in the most emotional and personal ceremony. There wasn't a dry eye in the room as they became husband and wife. The ceremony was officiated by their friend Michelle who also designed and made their amazing cake, as well as all of The Great Gatsby inspired decor.

Soon after their first dances we stepped outside for a few portraits with the beautiful sunset views over the Manasquan River as our backdrop.

It was such a beautiful day filled with so much love and happiness, and I was so honored to be part of Janine and Chris' celebration!

Congratulations to the Newlyweds!
