And by the looks of these stunning photos captured by Russ Meseroll Photography, Christi and Dan will be able to share and treasure their wedding day for years to come.
From the photographer: “Christi and Daniel’s wedding day was just so perfect! Earlier in the day, Christi and her beautiful bridesmaids got ready at Christi’s parents, Cindy and Matt’s, home in Eatontown. Christi’s gown and her bridesmaid’s pink toned dresses were hung in the entryway while “Chester” their dog joined in with the bridal prep! The ceremony was at the United Methodist Church in Red Bank and the newly married couple was greeted by their guests with a shower of pink and cream colored rose petals. The church’s gardens provided a beautiful setting to capture a few portraits of Christi and Dan on a bench and strolling through the gardens. They then hopped in Dan’s Toyota Land Cruiser, that was decorated with a “Just Married” sign and tin cans tied to the back bumper, for a celebratory cruise around Red Bank for their first time as a married couple! The bridal shots and Christi and Daniel’s formal shots were taken at Riverside Gardens Park in Red Bank. What a joy working with this bridal party and their jump shot was the best ever!! You can tell by the images of Christi and Daniel, taken in the park, that this couple is so in love. Their happiness shows in very picture and it was such fun capturing their special day for them. It was on to the Oyster Point, in Red Bank, for the reception. Their reception room was simple elegance with the pink and cream tones, from the place settings, floral centerpieces and to the cake. The staircase at the Oyster Point was perfect for some quick portraits and the amazing sunset that evening was the perfect backdrop that allowed us to capture some stunning pictures of Christi and Daniel.”
