We are so honored to be a Bergen Magazine Feature for Jaclyn & Paul’s recent NJ wedding.

I met Jaclyn and Paul after they came to me having seen our work from a wedding last year, our clients who also happened to be their friends. We talked quite a bit about what they wanted for their much-awaited wedding, and I then had the pleasure of working with them for their Engagement Session at the Cloisters in NYC. What struck me the most is that they have that kind of close with each other that they seem to know what each other is thinking without saying anything.

On their wedding day, there was a calmness they each had among all the moving parts of a wedding celebration, knowing it was all going to go perfectly. And it did. Jaclyn was stunning and ready for the best day, Paul was poised and confident, equally ready. Their ceremony saw a packed church, followed by their reception at the beautiful Indian Lake Club in Franklin Lakes. As the sun set on the other side of the lake, the reception room filled with a golden glow as the guests dined on terrific food, and danced to the awesome (really, really awesome!) sounds of AffinitiNYC.
