As a Hoboken wedding photographer, I am used to traveling all over New Jersey, New York, and beyond to document my couples’ love stories. I have to admit though, there is something really special about a wedding that takes place entirely in Hoboken. Moira and Jason’s wedding was simply stunning, from their sweet ceremony at St Ann Roman Catholic Church to their fun reception at one of my favorite Hoboken wedding venues – Kolo Klub! If you are currently planning a Hoboken wedding, I hope you love this wedding as much as I do! For more 2022 and 2023 wedding inspiration across New Jersey, click the button below!
Wedding Party Photos Before the Ceremony
I started the day meeting Moira and Jason at their hotel to capture their getting ready photos! During Moira’s getting ready photos, we were able to capture many memorable moments: Relaxing with her bridal party, her mom helping her into her dress (she wore her mother’s veil!), and a first look with her dad. Moira also wrote letters to both of her parents and it was one of my favorite moments of the day! So sweet and so personal. In every moment, it was clear how much her family and friends truly mean to her.
Meanwhile, in Jason’s room, his groomsmen helped him get ready before the ceremony. Moira and Jason had a traditional “aisle reveal” which meant they weren’t to see each other before the wedding ceremony, but they DID want to take as many photos as possible before the ceremony to save time in between the ceremony and cocktail hour. We created a wedding day timeline that worked for them – and captured the bride’s side of family portraits and wedding party portraits first, and the groom’s side next. Not only did this save time after the ceremony, but it also helped build anticipation for the day! By the ceremony time, everyone was buzzing with anticipation.
Hoboken Wedding Ceremony at St Ann Roman Catholic Church
Catholic weddings are always beautiful (the architecture is always a dream to photograph!), but what really makes a wedding ceremony special is when you can feel the love fill the entire room. Before their wedding day, I asked them each to name three things they loved about one another. Jason told me that he loves Moira’s kindness, patience, and smile. Moira loves Jason’s loyalty, generous heart, and work ethic. As their ceremony went on, I can’t even begin to explain how apparent it was that these two love each other.
After the wedding ceremony, they busted out of the church ready to CELEBRATE. After, we headed to the water to take photos with their wedding party and couple portraits in front of the breathtaking Hoboken skyline. The cloudiness of the sky made the photos even more romantic.
Hoboken Wedding at Kolo Klub
If you are looking for a Hoboken wedding venue, Kolo Klub has quickly become one of my favorites. I’ve been the wedding photographer for quite a few Kolo Klub weddings this year – which I am incredibly grateful for – and it’s honestly starting to feel like home. Vince, the owner, always welcomes me with open arms! When Moira and Jason were sharing all of their exciting wedding plans, they were both most excited about being surrounded by all the people they loved and cared about. That – and FINALLY being married. Like many others, Moira and Jason were forced to postpone their 2020 wedding to 2021. Their Hoboken wedding reception was full of joy and truly one to remember. Well worth the wait!
Wedding Photos in Hoboken
Being Moira and Jason’s Hoboken wedding photographer was EXTRA special because they got married on my 30th birthday – August 28, 2021. When we arrived at Kolo Klub, Moira and Jason did a Jameson shot with me as we were waiting for guests to arrive for cocktail hour. A big thank you to my favorite florist – A Petal to Peddle – for capturing this fun and sweet moment! Moira and Jason are such a sweet couple and I was so grateful to be a part of their wedding day! I hope you loved reliving this classic Hoboken wedding as much as I did.
