Christina’s maid of honor recalled how her friend took a full month to respond to the first message she received from Jon on MySpace almost 9 years ago, not knowing that it was her future husband, but I’d bet that Jon would say it was well worth the wait. The beautiful couple said their “I dos” outdoors at the breathtaking Park Savoy Estate in New Jersey on an unforgettable fall day, and between the gorgeous gardens and grounds and the elegant interior, it all made for a strikingly cinematic wedding video, which the Live Picture Studios videographers were on hand to create. Family and friends couldn’t have had more complimentary things to say about the newlyweds, but the words Jon wrote in his personal card to his soon-to-be wife may have summed up the spirit of the day best: “This is just another chapter in our already incredible story, and only the beginning of another stage of our life.” We couldn’t agree more. Congratulations, Christina and Jon, from all of us here at LPS!

There’s nothing wrong with going the traditional route when it comes to your wedding vows. After all, there are plenty standard sets of vows to choose from out there that have been passed down from generation to generation.
That’s because they work; they’ve withstood the test of time. However, that doesn’t mean you and your partner shouldn’t consider creating your own ceremony vows for your big day.
Personalizing your vows is a great way to bring something original to your wedding ceremony, something unique to you and your partner.
When Chris’s best man finally met Colleen a few months after she and Chris had been dating, he got a chance to see how smart, funny, and beautiful she is, and he could tell instantly that the two had fallen in love, or as he said, “Head over heels, couldn’t help it, fallen in love.” The delightful couple celebrated their big day at the enchanting Knoll Country Club West in New Jersey with family and friends, along with the Live Picture Studios videographers, on hand creating this cinematic wedding video. As the maid of honor put it, “Tonight starts the next chapter to your love novel,” and all of us at LPS hope that novel never ends. Congratulations, Colleen and Chris!

Considering the fact that same-sex couples have to, for the most part, come up with their own traditions and rituals when it comes to wedding planning, it’s no surprise that many of the guests they invite often don’t know what to expect.
From the way some same-sex couples choose to walk down the aisle to their sometimes unconventional choice of attire, guests must be ready to see some new and different traditions, and to react respectfully when they do.
And in our experience in NJ and NY videography, whether you’re planning on attending a straight, gay, or lesbian wedding, it’s always best to have an idea of what to expect from the celebration.
Pasquale had been dreaming of finding someone to spend his life with since high school, someone beautiful, someone who could make him smile without trying, and he found all that and more in Heather. The lovely couple said their “I dos” outdoors in a storybook forest setting at the Stroudsmoor Country Inn in Pennsylvania and between the picturesque scenery, the venue’s charming, cozy interior, and the touching speeches from family and friends, the Live Picture Studios videographers had plenty to work with while creating this cinematic wedding video. As the ceremony officiant put it, “A dream you dream alone, is only a dream. A dream you dream together, that is reality.” We couldn’t agree more and we hope these newlyweds’ reality goes beyond even their wildest dreams. Congratulations, Heather and Pasquale, from all of us at Live Picture Studios!

Now that the Supreme Court has removed all state bans on same-sex marriage and officially given same-sex couples the same marriage rights as heterosexual couples, more and more people are noticing some of the unique trends at same-sex weddings.
Same-sex couples don’t have as much tradition to fall back on, so they’re creating their own. Whether it’s the choice of attire, the way they walk down the aisle, etc., same-sex couples are doing some new and inventive things at their weddings.
And take it from us as longtime videography vets, whether you’re planning a straight, lesbian, or gay wedding in NY or NJ, there are some trends that every couple should take note of.
As Jeremy’s best man and friend of 13 years said, “Erin is the best thing that’s ever happened to Jeremy,” and her kindness, patience, and levelheadedness has rubbed off on him. The amazing couple said their “I dos” outdoors at the Liberty House in Jersey City, New Jersey, and the exquisite views of the NYC skyline in the background as well as the venue’s amazing interior made for some gorgeous shots, which the Live Picture Studios videographers were there to capture for this cinematic wedding video. From the touching toasts to the lively dance floor, it was a truly unforgettable day. All of us here at LPS wish Erin and Jeremy a lifetime of love and happiness. Congratulations, you two!

While planning any type of wedding is a challenge, to say the least, if you’re planning a gay or lesbian wedding, it can be especially complicated because you don’t have nearly as much tradition to lean on.
Some of the most basic wedding conventions are gender related, so same-sex couples are often left to decide who should play which role, what to call their wedding party, etc., on their own.
Luckily, in our many years creating wedding videos, we’ve done the videography at many a lesbian and gay wedding in NY / NJ and we’ve heard, first-hand, the questions same-sex couples ask most.
Shannon and Stephen met in Atlantic City and, according to Stephen’s brother, it was Stephen’s “luckiest and most expensive trip to Atlantic City, ever.” The couple has spent 5 amazing years together since then and they made their union official at the scenic Mountain Lakes Club in New Jersey. Between the gorgeous lake-side ceremony and the venue’s charming interior, it all made for an unforgettable day and a truly cinematic wedding video, which the Live Picture Studios videography team was on hand to create. As the ceremony officiant put it, “Life takes on meaning as it becomes composed of many meaningful events, and certainly, this glorious day is one of them.” We couldn’t agree more. Congratulations, Shannon and Stephen!
