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.
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)

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
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.
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.
