It wasn’t long before The Sky Room at Maritime Parc in Jersey City would be filled with dancing and celebration. But first, it was time for Josh and Lara and their bridal party to get ready for the big day. In a room with windows that showcased the NYC skyline, Lara prepared for the day she had always dreamt of. She was already stunning, but once she put on her wedding dress, she looked absolutely breathtaking. It was as if her dress had been tailor made just for her.
A little while later, Lara had a first look with her father. Tears of joy flowed from her eyes when he saw her in her wedding dress for the first time. The moment was everything she had hoped for and more, with a picturesque backdrop of the river and the city skyline.
You could feel the warmth and excitement in the church as guests awaited the start of the ceremony. When Josh saw Lara walking down the aisle, he looked like the happiest man on earth. It was as beautiful as a wedding that you’d expect at the end of your favorite romance movie. Except for Josh and Lara, this was only the beginning.
Guests gathered at Maritime Parc in anticipation of the reception that would celebrate the new bride and groom. The venue’s stunning wrap around terrace and panoramic views of the Hudson River, the Statue of Liberty, and the Manhattan skyline made it the perfect place to capture timeless wedding photos.
Josh and Lara’s reception at Maritime Parc did not disappoint. The couple’s first dance was a moment that we will all remember forever. Not to mention, the toasts from the best man and maid of honor had everyone both laughing and crying. It didn’t seem possible for the night to get more perfect, but an evening photo shoot on the outdoor terrace made all of my wedding photographer dreams come true.
