I photographed the wedding of Amy and Andrew Pernick at the Westfield Marriott this past May. It was the first time that I had been to this particular venue and I was pleasantly surprised to find an elegant space very well suited for the celebration that took place. The day started in the bridal suite where I found Amy, her mother and a group of excited bridesmaids diligently preparing. It was here that I also learned of Amy’s upcoming appearance on “Say Yes to the Dress” which added a fun twist to the day as she was being filmed for the show. I was exceptionally moved when I photographed the staged “first glance” where Andrew revealed his emotion with tears of joy when he saw his bride for the first time. The ceremony was a beautifully personalized event; it held true to the Jewish tradition of union but also conveyed the unique meaning and individuality behind this couples’ chosen devotion to one another. After the ceremony, dinner and a few drinks (of course) the newlyweds along with their guests hit the dance floor. The evening was filled with energized celebration as everyone danced to a combination of contemporary music and traditional Jewish wedding songs such as the Hora. It was an event filled with fun and laughter throughout, along with the photographs to remember it by.
