We’ve been told that every wedding is different and memorable in its way, but Delila & Chris’ wedding at The Mansion on Main St was truly an unforgettable experience. Everything was done with great care and thoughtfulness, from the decorations to the food to the dancing, making it easy for their guests to relax and enjoy themselves.

Our team of photography experts from J&J Studios was on hand to capture every moment of this particular day, including her first look with her soon-to-be husband, their intimate ceremony at the Mansion on Main St, and the cocktail hour that preceded the reception.

MEET THE BRIDE AND GROOM; DELILA & CHRIS

Delila & Chris were a joy to work with during their wedding. They were always so upbeat, and positive and kept their team inspired throughout the preparation. The wedding was a beautiful, fresh take on the classic affair, with all the details and decor in sync with Delila and Chris’ shared personalities. We are so happy to have been able to play a part in such a meaningful day.

Whenever we shot them together, they were fun, cute, and playful with each other. We could tell they genuinely enjoyed being around each other. Whenever we photographed them separately, they still gave me the same vibe: Delila was sweet, goofy, and completely head over heels for Chris. He knew just how lucky he was to be marrying the love of his life, the woman who made him happier than anyone else in the world.

WEDDING PREPARATIONS AT WESTIN HOTEL

As you can imagine, some of the most crucial photos of a wedding are those taken on the big day as people get ready. With so many details to manage on the day of the wedding, it’s easy to overlook this very special part of the process.

We arrived at the Westin Hotel, NJ, for one of our favorite events of the year: a wedding. We entered the front desk area to find that we had two separate rooms to use during our photography and videography. This was a bonus because it meant that we could take photos of the bride and groom separately before they saw each other.

The bride was in one room with her bridal party while the groom was in another room with his groomsmen. We got some great shots of everyone getting ready in their own space. The mood was light and relaxed as everyone got ready for the day ahead. The bride and groom had an exciting mix of close family and friends to celebrate their big day with, and we couldn’t wait to capture all the fun. We took photos as everyone got ready, including some posed shots and candid photos of everyone laughing and having a good time together. When it came time to see each other for the first time, there was so much love and excitement!

WEDDING CEREMONY AT ST MARK OF ARC

Delila and Chris’ wedding ceremony took place at St Joan of Arc, where we had a chance to photograph the entrances to the church. We wanted to make sure that we captured the guests’ reactions, which is why we arrived early to grab some candid shots of everyone as they made their way inside. The bride and groom were escorted by both sets of parents. This was a nice touch that helped to keep the focus on their special day.

The vows were exchanged after the readings so that when Delila and Chris turned to each other they were met with an up-close shot of their faces and expressions. Their vows were heartfelt and genuine. Moreover, they were accompanied by the lightheartedness and laughter present at any wedding ceremony. After they announced their decision to take one another as husband and wife, they shared a kiss that was easy and natural. The kind where you can feel how right it felt for them at that moment.

We also took some pictures outside after the ceremony in front of the church. These are some of our favorites from the day, definitely worth looking through!

COCKTAIL HOUR AT MANSION ON MAIN STREET

After a charming ceremony, Delila and Chris’ guests were invited to the Mansion on Main St for cocktail hour. The place is beautiful and the food is delicious. A great venue for a casual, semi-private event like a cocktail hour. This was perfect for mingling and chatting with our friends and for enjoying the beautiful day.

A cocktail hour is essentially a fancy happy hour. Here you get to mingle with your guests while they enjoy light appetizers and drinks. It’s a great way to socialize with your guests before rushing off to the reception. As soon as we got there, we were greeted with plenty of good wishes from family and friends and were able to take advantage of some great photo ops around the venue.

MANSION ON MAIN STREET WEDDING RECEPTION

Delila and Chris’ wedding reception took place at Mansion on Main Street. We started the night off with an entrance of the bride and groom into the party. The couple entered the ballroom while a wide shot of the room was being taken.

Once inside, Chris and Delila proceeded to make their way down to their table as they were dancing. It was a great way to start the celebration for everyone. This is because it was an opportunity for people to see how beautiful Delila looked in her wedding gown and how happy Chris looked as well. It was also a chance for them to get some photographs done before heading up to have their first dance. After the meal was served, it was time for Chris and Delila’s first dance together as husband and wife.

VENDORS AT MANSION ON MAIN STREET WEDDING

When planning their wedding, Delila and Chris knew they wanted to focus on the people they were celebrating: each other. They also knew they didn’t want to focus on the trappings of a typical wedding. But on the fact that they were coming together as a family. So, when it came time to choose their vendors for their big day, Delila and Chris had a clear idea of what mattered most in terms of their vendors’ work.

Luckily, Delila and Chris’ wedding vendors understood the assignment to make their day a success. They were very knowledgeable in their fields, keeping Delila and Chris up-to-date with the latest trends while also providing them with information that would help them make decisions about the things they weren’t familiar with.
