I can’t even begin to express the sheer joy and honor I experienced as the Hoboken photographer for this intimate fall wedding! It was an absolute delight to capture the essence and breathtaking beauty of Ally and Rick’s extraordinary love story. It came as no surprise, that from the very moment I stepped foot into the breathtaking and picturesque St Ann Roman Catholic Church, I could feel the undeniable connection radiating from their love for each other.
The bride and groom, Ally and Rick, share a passion for the outdoors, adventure, and travel. Beyond their shared love for the great outdoors, Ally and Rick’s personalities shine with their shared love of food and music! If that isn’t sweet enough for you, Rick proposed to Ally at her parents’ lake house in the Poconos, surrounded by both of their families! How heartwarming is that?! This created a beautiful and meaningful start to their journey together. I am beyond excited to share Ally and Rick’s gorgeous micro wedding on the blog today!
Capturing the Excitement with Pre-Ceremony Photos!
Before the ceremony, I took the opportunity to capture some photographs of the gorgeous St Ann Roman Catholic Church and the inside ceremony setup. The guests eagerly arrived, filling the atmosphere with excitement and anticipation. They exchanged warm greetings with Rick before the ceremony started, which felt so sweet and meaningful. As a photographer, I absolutely love capturing these precious moments of anticipation and joy! I want your wedding gallery to represent how your wedding day unfolds, and it is truly a privilege to be able to freeze these heartfelt interactions in time.
A Charming Church Ceremony: A Union of Love and Tradition
The wedding ceremony at St Ann Roman Catholic Church was absolutely breathtaking. The awe-inspiring architecture and the stunning stained glass windows always take my breath away, even though I’ve been fortunate to photograph many weddings here. As Ally and Rick stood together at the altar, their eyes locked in unwavering love, their radiant smiles illuminated the entire room. The joy and happiness in the moment were beautiful things to witness!
Post-Ceremony Group Portraits
After the ceremony, Ally and Rick were embraced by their loved ones, all brimming with excitement, eager to take family portraits together to remember this moment. These pictures are so special because they truly showcase the genuine smiles and laughter that reflect the strong connection and beautiful memories made on this incredible day!
Stunning Bride and Groom Portraits
After finishing the group portraits, we took a few moments to have a private photo shoot exclusively with Ally and Rick to capture their just-married bliss (and how incredible they both looked). And, what better location than on Maxwell Pier waterfront overlooking the breathtaking NYC skyline? Ally and Rick beautifully showcased their adventurous spirit and love for the outdoors in these portraits. Their wedding color scheme had stunning autumn colors like navy, green, and orange that matched the romantic fall atmosphere perfectly (I loved the uniqueness of Ally’s bouquet!).
Celebratory Drinks at Backstage Lounge
Following their portraits, Ally and Rick headed to Backstage Lounge to meet up with their guests for celebratory drinks. The lounge, with its warm and cozy ambiance, perfectly complemented the intimate nature of this fall wedding in Hoboken. It truly was a beautiful thing to see so much love and well wishes Ally and Rick received from their guests! The space was perfect for it!
Reflecting on Ally and Rick’s Intimate Fall Wedding

Every moment, from the pre-ceremony photos that captured the excitement to the celebratory drinks at Backstage Lounge, was filled with love, laughter, and a touch of autumn magic. It was an honor to witness and capture the timeless memories created on this special day.
