Jenna & Scott [Battello Jersey City, NJ Wedding Photographer]

I knew going into Jenna & Scott’s wedding day that it would be an amazing day but it honestly exceeded every expectation I had of it! It was MORE than amazing… it literally was PERFECT. Perfect weather, we didn’t run late ANYWHERE, EVERYTHING came together exactly the way it was supposed to and I’m just SO happy it all went so well for them! Jenna & Scott are an amazing couple. Anyone that knows them will tell you the same thing. They treat strangers like friends that they’ve known forever and they treat friends they’ve known forever like family. They are so LOVED by everyone around them and it showed on their wedding day. 200 of their family and friends came to celebrate them and what a wonderful celebration it was.

It was Jose and mine’s own anniversary the day of their wedding day and we couldn’t have asked for a better way to celebrate it! We showed up to Bridal Suite and the first thing Jenna says to us is “HAPPY ANNIVERSARY!” That just speaks volumes about how kind and sweet she is. On top of that, she is hilarious. They both are! They had us laughing behind our cameras all morning – they were in the BEST mood EVER!! Their Bridal Party was SO special. Though Jenna had her special “entourage” of 8 unofficial Bridesmaids by her side all day long, they officially had 2 maids of honors and 2 best daughters (best name ever!). Scott’s daughters from his previous marriage, Kay and Gigi were the lucky best daughters of the day! It touched my heart to see how much they LOVED Jenna and how excited they were to have her become a part of their family. Scott is an amazing and caring father, it showed all day long, and Jenna loves these girls just as much as he does. I know it was such a special day for all of them ๐Ÿ™‚

There are so many favorite moments from their wedding day – it’s SO HARD to pick one. Their sweet, personalized vows during their ceremony were absolutely beautiful. They said the most amazing things to each other and it brought a tear to everyone’s eye. Another moment that brought tears to everyone’s eye was watching all of their dances. After Jenna & Scott shared an AMAZING first dance together and their sweet parent dances, of course Scott danced with Kay and GiGi each to their own special songs! Oh man – that’s when I lost it! lol It was the sweetest moment and I’ll never forget it. But I think my FAVORITE part of their wedding day was watching Scott’s reaction to seeing Jenna for the first time during their first look. You just never know how a guy is going to react but Scott’s reaction is exactly what every Bride dreams of. He was STUNNED! He hugged her and just kept pulling away to get another glimpse at her, he couldn’t get over how gorgeous she looked. And wow, she DID look gorgeous! It’s always so fun to watch a Bride & Groom in their own little world during the first look – no one else exists but them two ๐Ÿ™‚

SO many amazing vendors came together to make this day possible and they are all credited at the bottom of this post. NOTHING would have gone flawlessly if it wasn’t for all these amazing vendors and the incredible staff at Battello, which is not only where the ceremony AND reception were but where all the portraits were as well! We spent all day there and all day long, they made sure Jenna & Scott were happy and taken care of (and that we were hydrated! lol). Guys, this is just the beginning of our spring wedding season and I have SO many amazing photos to share with you all! Sit back, relax and enjoy scrolling for a while! ๐Ÿ˜‰ Jenna & Scott – I will say it again and again, thank you for choosing us to capture your incredible wedding day for you both! We seriously are overjoyed for you both and wish you NOTHING but more joy and love in the years to come!! ๐Ÿ™‚
