Yet another awesome couple I had the chance of capturing in 2017, Deanna and Tom were married at St. Mary’s Church in Nutley, NJ and followed it up with a phenomenal reception held at the one and only Park Savoy in Florham Park. I was hired by Deanna over the phone, and loved her openness and sense of humor immediately. When I finally got to meet her and Tom at a Starbucks (where else?) it felt very comfortable, very quickly. They have been together since high school (potentially why their wedding hashtag was #tomanddeefinally!) and they have the swagger of a couple with some years under their belt. In fact, they felt married to me, and very confident and secure in their relationship. So to say their wedding was cheered on by friends and family would be an understatement. It was a cathartic celebration for all to watch these two tie the knot after being together since their teenage years.

I think my favorite part of the day was when Deanna surprised Tom by renting an “EXACT” replica of the Delorean from Back to the Future, Tom’s favorite movie of all time. When she was telling me about what she had planned, being a movie buff myself, I was a little too excited for the moment to unfold. It certainly lived up to the anticipation, as the air was electric, and watching Tom unable to contain his smile was hilarious. You know you are marrying the right lady when she goes out of her way to surprise you with a childhood dream on your wedding day! It was a day full of smiles, laughs and joy and that all goes back to Deanna and Tom. Congrats to these two, enjoy the preview below!
