Pleasantdale Château Wedding – Jennifer + Nick 12.31.07

Happy New Year! I love photographing New Years Eve weddings, they are so festive. I usually photograph a wedding every New Years Eve and this year was no exception. The Pleasantdale Château in West Orange, NJ was a perfect setting to ring in 2008. Jennifer and Nick were such a beautiful and creative couple who were not only partners in life but also in business. Together, they own a really trendy sneaker boutique in NYC called Classic Kicks. I fell in love with a pair of fur lined sneakers that Jennifer wore (though not at the wedding). The wedding was anything but casual with a stellar candle lit ceremony. The bride wore a one of a kind gown by Lazaro from Kleinfeld Bridal in NYC. At the stroke of midnight, pyrotechnics streamed from the floral centerpieces ringing in a very happy and loving 2008.

Jessica + Jason

How exciting!!! One of our own, Jessica Inverso will be tying the knot in 2008. Jessica has been a long time employee of Marie Labbancz Photography, second shooting by my side for over 5 years. She also photographs weddings for us on her own as my primary associate photographer. On October 3rd of this year she will be marrying her long time love Jason in a beautiful outdoor wedding at Fonthill Castle Estate in Doylestown, PA. Jessica is an absolute wedding addict and has been planning this day for most of her life . Along with the help of Donna at Beautiful Blooms, it will be an amazing “polka dot” wedding day! I’m so excited that I will be documenting her most creative day. I don’t want to give it away but her Romana Keveza gown, which she found at Suky Occasions is so perfect for her artistic persona. Congratulations Jessica and Jason! Everyone here at Marie Labbancz Photography can’t wait to share in your special creation!

Princeton Wedding – Luisa + Jeff 06.02.07

Hot off the presses…. Luisa and Jeffs beautiful wedding is featured in the current issue of New Jersey Bride magazine. The wedding was held at the grooms parents home in Princeton, NJ. They had so many unique features to their wedding. Helping the couple with all their wedding plans was Beka Nave of Innove Events. The couple reside in Texas, so it was really helpful to have someone locally to help with the local details. Luisa found her Vera Wang gown in her home town of Texas.

In addition to the beautiful feature of Luisa and Jeff’s wedding in the current issue of New Jersey Bride Magazine I also had allot of stock images featured. I’d just like to give thanks to the creative professional that provided “things” for me to photograph.

Tara and Daniel Dean had this image of their first dance at Florentine Gardens in River Vale, NJ selected before they even saw their proofs.

I love this grape and eggplant centerpiece by Laurence Craig Catering of Maplewood, NJ. Who needs a florist when you have a creative caterer?
