Susan found me by way of my good friend and portrait photographer, Mandy Karangelen. Susan and Louis had planned a nice intimate and small wedding to be at their house in Northern New Jersey. They beauty about "backyard weddings" is while most people choose to keep the details a little more laid back and simple, the guest list is usually more laid back also. There were two tents set up. One in the front yard for the ceremony, and one in the driveway for the dinner and dancing. Led down the aisle by her son, Susan had Louis holding his breathe as she walked towards him. He let out a HUGE breathe of relief and relaxation once she got to him. Their children were the bridal party.
Following the ceremony, I borrowed Susan and Louis for a few minutes to capture some relaxed portraits around their house, before the reception kicked off. The rest of the night was a ton of fun to be a part of... and both of them we so appreciative of everything, it made being there even more of a pleasure.
Enjoy their preview!
