Teri & Anthony

Porta means door in Italian and Latin (and maybe a few other languages.. I’m a photographer, not a linguist). It’s also one of the best restaurants in Asbury Park, and Teri & Anthony’s wedding venue.

After entering the doors to the Abbot Room, friends and family joined Teri & Anthony for a beautiful and unique ceremony. Once vows were exchanged, the newlyweds began a new chapter together in their lives as husband and wife.


Courtney & Rob

The day started with a light rain, which eased up just in time for Courtney & Rob’s outdoor ceremony at Crystal Point. It’s hard to deny the symbolism of the rain stopping just for you to get married, I mean, it doesn’t get much better than that!

After their vows, they danced throughout the night and enjoyed every moment together as husband & wife.


i carry your heart with me (i carry it in my heart) 

i am never without it (anywhere i go you go)

Nicole & Nick

A beach elopement in Spring is just full of romance. You have that universal sense of transformation combined with an intimate marriage all at once. Nicole & Nick were united as one beside the ocean (and for a moment, in the ocean) with a ceremony so private that we might as well have been on a deserted island.

For whatever we lose (like a you or a me), it’s always our self we find in the sea. - e.e. cummings 


Mariel & John

Money was raining down, shots were going up, and love was in the air. Mariel & John’s winter wedding was an eclectic combination of fun and romance: where else can you find Greek dancing and Scottish bagpipes? The newlyweds chose the Shadowbrook for their reception and didn’t leave eachothers arms for the rest of the night.


Shii-Tean & Steven

Much like the holidays, Shii-Tean & Steven’s wedding day was a day of giving.  They began with an exchange of love letters, followed that with a few extra wedding day gifts, and (of course) they exchanged a couple rings.  They gave one another their vows in the beautiful Allaire Village Chapel and followed that with a reception at The Radisson of Freehold, dancing together as husband and wife.
