Lauren & Adam's wedding at Maritime Parc

Lauren, Adam and their families were radiating with excitement and happiness throughout the entire day. Craig was happy to keep shooting in the friend circle, having shot Brynn’s wedding last year where Lauren was a bridesmaid!  The couplegot ready at The Westin Jersey City, where Lauren was helped into her Pnina Tornai gown by her bridal party, donning delicate pieces of jewelry including her wedding band, which belonged to her grandmother. Adam looked dapper in his suit and bow-tie and had fun prepping with his gents! Choosing the traditional route, the couple had their first looks at each other as Lauren walked down the aisle of the grand Holy Rosary Church. The ceremony included a full mass, including the Ave Maria! It was a beautiful scene, surrounded by the church’s vaulted ceilings, marble pillars and beautiful flower arrangements by Schweinfurth Florist. After the ceremony, the married couple and their wedding party walked the Liberty State Park for portraits with the incredible skyline as a backdrop. Although the photo session got lightly drizzled on, we were rewarded with a stunning double rainbow – a perfect sign for the newly married couple! The celebration continued at Maritime Parc, where guests were greeted with spectacular views, food and music, provided by CTO Tribeca. It was a fun evening and a great wedding!
