Their Minimony: Bayonne, NJ

It was such a blast getting to know these two as they planned their perfect minimony! Depsite their original wedding plans being changed due to COVID, they handled the curveball thrown their way with so much positivity and excitement for their new plan! I love how go-with-the-flow, playful, and wildly fun these two are ā€“ we have such a great time getting to know them and celebrate with them on their big day! Their ceremony was intimate, romantic, and so perfectly THEM. Annnnd can we just talk about the unreal sunset we captured during their portraits?! Keep scrolling for allllll the golden hour goodness!

Their Love Story

I love how Gina and Sam’s officiant incorporated pieces of their love story into the ceremony. She shared how they met, which was in Miami at the Clevelander bar! Sam didn’t want to party alone, so he approached Gina and her sister. His opening line was, “how are the mojitos?” and Gina will never forget it! šŸ™‚
They were supposed to get married on the beach in Miami and have a reception at a small restaurant-oasis called Cafe Roval. Since they met in Miami, they wanted to go back to where they met to tie the knot. What was SO exciting about everything was that Gina told me these photos were going to be their first real photos they have ever taken together! They never got to do engagement photos, so their big day was prime time for alllll the photos!

Gina and Sam,

You two are such a dream ā€“ your love truly radiates and can be felt by anyone around you! I’m so grateful to have been a part of this special day with you and capture the memories you’ll hold onto forever! Congratulations, newlyweds! xoxo
