Julianna and Quinn celebrate their Bay Head Yacht Club wedding day in this photo by NJ wedding photographer Amy Rizzuto

No amount of clouds could keep Julianne and Quinn’s love from shining brightly on the day of their breathtaking Bay Head Yacht Club wedding! The classic, nautical style of their wedding was sweet, timeless, and fun – just like their beautiful love story!

The matching pajama sets Julianne and her bridesmaids wore while getting ready were simply adorable! Everyone looked so cozy as they posed for pictures and chatted excitedly. The soundtrack to the Greatest Showman was playing in the background and set the mood for the entire day! Julianne was an effortless beauty in her classic J.Crew dress. Her friends and family helped her slip on her Badgley Mischka shoes and pinned her gorgeous veil into her simple, yet stunning updo. The bouquets were a perfect mix of bright white blooms, soft blue accents, and a touch of greenery. The powder blue bridesmaids gowns added such a dreamy touch to the day.

The wedding party traveled to the church in a vintage-style trolley. Julianne and her father took some time together as everyone else headed into the church. It was so touching to see the two share a father-daughter moment together before walking down the aisle! I loved how important family was to both Julianne and Quinn.  You could tell they were such a special part of their wedding day.

The doors to the church opened and Quinn saw just how beautiful Julianne looked for the very first time! Julianne and Quinn couldn’t stop smiling as they held hands and professed their love and commitment to each other in front of their friends and family. The crowd let out a cheer as they were pronounced husband and wife, and the two shared their first kiss as a married couple!

After the ceremony, Julianne and Quinn spent time together around the Bay Head Yacht Club wedding grounds. It was such a joy to capture their first moments as husband and wife! Portraits on the dock at the Bay Head Yacht Club were so romantic!  As Quinn twirled Julianne, their guests cheered from the balcony above. The cloud cover made for some gorgeous portraits of the couple: the two were radiant against the backdrop of soft, white clouds!

The Bay Head Yacht Club wedding reception was full of fun, beachy touches. The escort cards were beach badges buried in sand and the room was full of bright, white florals that made me this of waves crashing on the shore. Julianne and Quinn sent their guests home with delicious rosé gummy bears from sugarfina.

Julianne and Quinn took a moment alone together during the reception to pose for moonlit portraits from the balcony of their Bay Head Yacht Club wedding. The newlyweds ended the night of dancing and celebrations hand-in-hand, ready to start their lives together!

Thank you so much to Julianne and Quinn for choosing me to capture the love and joy of your wedding! I am so happy to share some of my favorite moments from your beautiful day!

Bear Brook Valley wedding photographer Amy Rizzuto captures Lea and David on their Northern NJ wedding day!

When two people are as meant to be as Lea and David, their love shines brightly and fills everyone around them with complete joy! Every moment of Lea and David’s Bear Brook Valley wedding was a testament to how perfect of a match they are! Their day was filled with laughter and fun, as well as sweet, heartfelt moments between this wonderful couple and their family and friends.

Lea and David spent the morning apart in Bear Brook Valley‘s separate on-site getting ready suites. The two were all smiles, each excitedly anticipating the moment they would finally see each other during their first look. Lea clinked monogrammed champagne glasses with her bridesmaids while David toasted his groomsmen with custom mugs.

Lea slipped on her gorgeous Maggie Sottero wedding gown with help from her mother and took a moment to twirl excitedly underneath the chandelier-lit silo. I loved when Lea saw her grandmother for the first time! You could feel that the love and adoration between them both was so strong and it was such a beautiful moment.

When it was time for their first look, David waited anxiously on the bridge. Lea approached him from behind, giggling excitedly. The two embraced and shared smiles, tears, and sweet kisses as they saw each other for the first time! Lea and David joined hands and adventured around the Bear Brook Valley wedding grounds, posing among the beautiful fields and perfect sky. After portraits with their wedding party, Lea and David parted one last time before their ceremony.

David watched as Lea’s brother walked his beautiful bride down the aisle towards him. The couple held hands, smiling brightly as their eyes met. Lea’s cousin officiated their Bear Brook Valley wedding ceremony!  At the beginning, she told of many great love stories before getting to Lea and David’s.  Some of my favorites included Beauty and the Beast and the Lion King!  The whole ceremony was heartfelt and inspiring. Lea and David even wrote their own vows!  There wasn’t a dry eye among their guests as these two laughed and cried their way through their sweet and sometimes funny promises to each other.

Once they were pronounced husband and wife, Lea and David shared a high five, a perfect first kiss, and a sweet embrace. These two couldn’t stop smiling as they followed their guests to the Bear Brook Valley barn. Cocktail hour was enjoyed outside, and the food was not only unique, it was delicious!  Mini sliders were topped with pretzel buns, and there was even a bacon bar with bacon infused bourbon!  How fun!

The Bear Brook Valley wedding reception was filled with gorgeous blooms and greenery by Main Street Bloomery. Lea and David each shared a special dance with their moms, and the whole room was filled with so much joy and love. Lea and David spent almost all of their time at the reception on the dance floor, surrounded by their closest family and friends!  Guests also enjoyed the wrap around deck (covered in twinkle lights along with cozy chairs and a fireplace!) and their fun mirrored photo booth.

As the night came to a close, Lea and David snuck away to take some time together and pose against the star-filled sky for beautiful nighttime portraits. They returned to their guests for a joyful sparkler exit, laughing and running hand-in-hand to begin their lives together as husband and wife.

Lea and David, it was an absolute joy to capture the love and laughter of your beautiful Bear Brook Valley wedding day! Thank you for including me in your love story. I’m thrilled to share some of my favorite photos from your wedding!

NYC engagement photographer, Amy Rizzuto of Amy Rizzuto Photography, captures Central Park engagement photos of Minoli and Joe posing in front of the city skyline

Minoli and Joe celebrated their gorgeous weddings a few weeks ago – that’s right: weddings plural! This transatlantic couple joined their family and friends at receptions in both NYC and London to commemorate their marriage! I was so thrilled to capture their incredible New York City wedding, I just had to share some of my favorite moments from their Central Park engagement photos last summer!

Minoli and Joe’s engagement photo shoot outfits were styled perfectly to match their wedding themes! Minoli’s red A-line dress and Joe’s blue suit and crisp white shirt hinted at the red, white, and blue details of their NYC reception. Their softer looks by the water were a tribute to the pink and gold color palette for their London nuptials.

The happy couple shared so many sweet moments as they adventured through the city! As they walked hand-in-hand in Central Park, contagious laughter rang out between romantic kisses by the water. Minoli and Joe looked stunning in their Central Park engagement photos, and you can feel the love radiating from this incredible couple!

In addition to capturing Minoli and Joe posing around some of Central Park’s most picturesque landmarks, we ventured to Larchmont, NY where they had gotten engaged! It was so exciting to see Minoli and Joe return to the gazebo where he proposed – they shared a sweet kiss and both were glowing with the excitement of spending the rest of their lives together!

I’m so happy to be sharing some of my favorite photos from Minoli and Joe’s Central Park engagement photo shoot! It’s been such an honor to capture such beautiful moments in your love story, thank you both for choosing me as your engagement and wedding photographer!

Chelsea and Kjael’s wedding at Bridgehampton Tennis and Surf Club left my heart so full. Relaxed, family centered, and filled to the brim with contagious joy, this wedding was beautiful in every way.

The early afternoon was alive with anticipation. Chelsea and Kjael got ready in neighboring beach houses. When it came time for their first look, the couple couldn’t wait to see one another. As soon as Chelsea’s feet hit the sand, her shoes came off! She wanted to be free to run to Kjael who was waiting for her down by the waves. It was such a carefree moment, filled with happy tears!  Afterwards, their families joined them on the beach for one big group hug.  For Chelsea and Kjael, this day was a celebration of two families joining together for a lifetime.

The bridal party slipped on shades for some fun pre-ceremony photos on the Bridgehampton beach. Family and friends started to arrive, trading their dancing shoes for sandals to wear as they made their way to their seats in the sand. Chelsea and Kjael exchanged personal vows to the sounds of the waves breaking on the shore behind them. Their ear to ear smiles as they made their way down the aisle, officially husband and wife, was one of my favorite moments of the entire day.

Bright, nautical-inspired details decorated the Bridgehampton Tennis and Surf Club. Chelsea and Kjael lit up the reception as they entered, hand-in-hand, ready to celebrate with their those they love most. Their first dance embodied their fun, contagious energy, both with tender moments and some fancy footwork!

When Chelsea’s dad gave his father of the bride speech, he explained that out of the many thousands of days he had lived, only eight really mattered. The day he met his wife, the day they got married, the days his three kids were born, and now their wedding days. As I look at the true joy in these photos, I can’t help but think that for Chelsea and Kjael, this day will be one of those days for them. I’m sharing some of my favorite memories from this beautiful couple’s Bridgehampton Tennis and Surf Club wedding below! Congratulations again Chelsea and Kjael. I am so happy for you!!!

Lauren and Matt share a kiss at their Ryland Inn wedding in a photo by Amy Rizzuto Photography

Happily ever after is just the beginning for Lauren and Matt! This sweet couple celebrated their Ryland Inn wedding day in such a beautiful and romantic way.  Delicate white blooms, soft sky blues, and sparkling accents were the perfect details to celebrate Lauren and Matt’s love story!

The morning was full of smiles, laughter, and excitement. Lauren’s bridesmaids complimented the color palette perfectly in their soft, blue gowns. Lauren shared a sweet moment with her mom as she stepped into her Augusta Jones wedding dress. Lauren looked beautiful! She is such an amazing planner and truly tied every detail together so perfectly! A smile burst across Lauren’s face as she slipped on her glittering, beaded Bella Belle shoes – she couldn’t wait to marry Matt!

A huge grin spread across Matt’s face when he finally saw his beautiful Lauren. I loved the emotion during the first look under the magnolia tree. It was so sweet watching these two during the little in-between moments of their wedding day. The giddy “I love yous” and ear-to-ear smiles made it completely obvious that Lauren and Matt truly are meant to be!

After their first look portraits, Lauren and Matt hopped into a white vintage Rolls Royce. The ceremony at Lauren’s home church was perfect and these two continued sharing sweet glances and loving smiles until the were finally pronounced husband and wife!

Lauren and Matt’s family and friends made their way to The Ryland Inn to celebrate the newlyweds. Matt had the BEST time breaking it down on the dance floor all night long and everyone joined in on the fun! Guests fully enjoyed roasting s’mores by the fire and the incredible donut wall as they headed out for the sparkler exit!

Thank you to Lauren and Matt for giving me the opportunity to celebrate with you on your special day. It was a true JOY! I’m so happy to be sharing some of my favorite moments from Lauren and Matt’s Ryland Inn wedding!
