Andrea & Jim // Married // The Crystal Ballroom

Instantly after meeting Andrea I knew we would mesh just perfectly. After a few glasses of wine and talking all about her wedding day and love story with Jim, I knew we had the same vision when it came to capturing her big day.

Luckily for Andrea, she works as a wedding/event coordinator so planning her wedding came naturally to her. They were married in a church, took bridal portraits at Monmouth University where Andrea attended and partied the night away at the Crystal Ballroom!

They danced in the clouds for their first dance as husband and wife, performed a sing along dance to Meatloaf's "Paradise by the Dashboard Light" & ran through sparklers at the end of the night!

I always have a favorite moment or memory from each wedding I shoot and looking back I have a few from this day. What stands out most in my mind was how relaxed these two were! It was amazing, even with things running a little late and trying to get as many portraits in as possible before the sun went down, these two were blissfully happy! Andrea and Jim celebrated their day with no stress or worry and purely just enjoyed every minute of their wedding day. Not all wedding days run smoothly. It's just life but don't let it affect one of the happiest days of your life! Embrace the good with the bad of the day because the good always outweighs the bad. I mean you are marrying your best friend when all is said and done!

Enjoy marriage Andrea & Jim!
