NJ Wedding Photography | The Villa at Mountain Lakes


Happy New Year everyone!!! Let's start out the year by looking back to the fabulous NJ Wedding Photography of Jennifer and Brandon! Such a gorgeous fall day and the weather was just perfect. The bridal party got ready at The Hilton in Parsippany-Troy Hills NJ. When I got to the bridal suite, the ladies were getting ready, laughing, smiling and having a great time. Jennifer just finished her hair and getting her makeup done. Great time to get detail shots of her Mori Lee lace dress (GORGEOUS!!!) as well as the bridesmaid's floor-length red strapless dresses. The contrast with the bouquets was amazing. Red, gold...just perfect! By the way, when I saw Jennifer's shoes I was just amazed since they were perfect! The men were taking their time getting ready and Brandon just looked dashing in his tux and white bow-tie. The men headed down to the gazebo to escort Brandon for the first look. I escorted the ladies down and I was nervous!!! One of the best moments, I think, is the first look. Seeing Brandon's reaction to Jennifer being dressed up in her beautiful beaded lace dress, he hair in an up-do and all in all looking like a classic beauty. These two are truly a lucky couple. After a few bridal party portraits by a lake by the church in Pompton Lakes, NJ, we were off the Saint Mary's church for the ceremony. Just a beautiful ceremony and reminds me time and time again why I love shooting weddings. As the bride and groom walk out, they were greeted with bubbles in the air blown by the wedding guest.

As the guests and bridal party head to The Villa in Mountain Lakes New Jersey,  everyone was treated to the bride and groom dancing a choreographed dance! "Feels Like Home" by Chantal Krevlazuk was Jennifer and Brandon's first dance song, and looking at them you can definitely feel that they were one with a bright future ahead of them. Everyone danced the night away with a few cigars outdoors for the men, cake for everyone, and love and laughter just everywhere.

Congratulations to the new Mr. and Mrs. Macaluso!!! I am so very happy for you and happy Angelica Criscuolo Photography was part of it all! As part of Jennifer and Brandon's wedding package, they are enjoying their high resolution images by viewing them on a complimentary iPad! To wrap this up and send it in time for Christmas and before I took time off for the holidays definitely made me feel like Santa. Having amazing brides and groom like Jennifer and Brandon and ensuring they, and all our couples, receive spectacular images that capture all the moments that occurs during a wedding day and ensuring our couples become an integral part of the Angelica Criscuolo Photography family is why we were voted by The Knot Best of Weddings 2013...Thank you!

Happy New Year to everyone once again and I cannot wait to start planning and outlining wedding plans with my 2013 and 2014 bride and grooms!!!


xoxo Angelica
