Leia + Taylor’s wedding was a very special one for us because it was the first time that Chris and I had worked there together since our own wedding there in 2014. Chris and I absolutely love to work weddings at the Versailles Ballroom in Toms River, NJ. So, needless to say, we were very excited to be the Photography, Entertainment, and Photo Booth for Leia and Taylor’s very special day!
Leia got ready with all of her nearest and dearest ladies. They primped and prepped while Taylor hung out and suited up with all of his closest guys. Leia’s dress was an Allure from Cinderella Bridal and Taylor’s suit was from Men’s Wearhouse.
As soon as Leia was ready we set up a first look with her father in the rose garden outside of the ballroom. I first met Leia’s dad during Leia and Taylor’s engagement session and he was so fun and easy to get along with. While we were waiting for Leia to arrive, her dad told me all about how he had worn the same tuxedo for all of his children’s weddings. It looked awesome on him too!!
After Leia an her dad had a first look, we then set up the first look with Taylor. We set them up for their first look in the rose garden and it was like a fairy tale, it was so beautiful. Taylor and Leia took a moment with just each other as we captured their genuine interaction. Taylor was in awe of his beautiful bride.
Their ceremony was at the Versailles and DJ Chris Marino from Limelight Entertainment was there to make sure that the ceremony went flawless. There was a super cute moment between Leia and Taylor when Leia was putting on Taylor’s ring during the ring ceremony. It needed a little push and it made the both of them giggle. I love moments like this.
After Leia and Taylor’s ceremony, it was time to party! The guests went in to cocktail hour to grab some drinks and some bites to eat. I must say that the cocktail hour at the Versailles is to die for!! The spread that they put out cannot be beat!
After cocktails it was time to Introduce the New Mr. + Mrs. and have them dance their first dance. Limelight Entertainment was there for it all. Leia and Taylor chose the dancing on the clouds package for their first dance and it was magical! Dancing on the clouds is where we provide a low lying smoke on the dance floor for your first dance and it looks like you are literally dancing on clouds.
Limelight Entertainment provided their Photo Booth too! Everyone had so much fun in our white photo booth lounge and Leia and Taylor were able to take home a memory book of all of their photo strips to remember all of the fun and smiles.
During the reception Leia and Taylor played a beautiful photo montage of pictures of them and their families through the years. The montage was displayed on our TV displays for everyone to enjoy.
Everyone danced the night away in celebration of Leia and Taylor. It was an amazing wedding and the perfect #LimelightWedding. We cannot thank them enough for having us there! Congrats to Leia and Taylor!!
