We recently had the pleasure of photographing Samantha & Frank’s wedding. They were married on August 13 at the Saint James Chapel in Basking Ridge, NJ followed by a reception at the Park Avenue Club in Florham Park, NJ.
A few days before the wedding we had the opportunity to do a photo session with Sammantha. This allowed to do a few more portraits of the bride in her gown without having to worry about following the schedule of the wedding day. When the day came Craig arrived back at the brides home where he did additional photos of Samantha, her two sisters and her cousin. While at home she also presented each of her parents with a personalized wedding handkerchief. While Craig spent time with the bride and her family, Caron went to Saddle Brook to photograph Frank, and all of his family. Frank has quite a large family of grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins who were all there to pre-celebrate the wedding day!
The Floral Gallery in Chester decorated the St. James Chapel with a beautiful assortment of flowers including hydrangeas and roses. The wedding mass was preformed by Reverend John Stack from Villanova University. Samantha and her two sisters are all alumni of Villanova.
Once we arrived at The Park Avenue Club Samantha, Frank and their awesome bridal party rallied through the summer heat and allowed us to get some beautiful and memorable photographs. Once the reception started Craig Scott Entertainment kept the party going all evening long. One moment we especially enjoyed was the dance that Samantha enjoyed with her Dad.
Thank you Samantha and Frank. Despite this being one of the hottest weddings of the summer, you were a pleasure to work with.
A special thank you to Mallory Weiss, from MCR Events Planning for making sure the day ran smoothly.
