CEO of a Fortune 500 company. Trustee Emeritus of Fairleigh Dickinson University. Captain of the Princeton football team, subject of a NY Times article, husband, father, grandfather… George Sella Jr.’s list of accomplishments seems endless.
Having spent a lot of time in Stillwater, NJ growing up, I was surprised and excited to be back in the woods for Alysa and Sean’s wedding at Brook Falls Farm, a venue I’d never been to before.
Alysa and I go pretty far back… like, pushing two decades back. We met in high school, went to shows together through college, and even worked together for a little while. So when I rolled up to her venue, I couldn’t have been more excited to see her marry Sean.
Michelle and Bill weren’t going to let a little rain stop them from celebrating their wedding this summer. It had absolutely poured the morning of in Vernon, and it had only just let up when I arrived at their house. Bill was prepared: He set up huge tents in their backyard to accommodate everyone for the reception, and they had a backup plan if they couldn’t get married outside like they’d planned.
Luckily, seats were dried, decorations were hung, and despite some lingering humidity and more possible rain in the forecast, they pushed on.
Explore the inside of the Chatterbox, Augusta, NJ’s 50’s-style drive-up restaurant, forever in this virtual tour from its final weeks in business.
Sussex County, NJ was rocked when the long-time 50's-style restaurant The Chatterbox announced that it would be closing for good after Labor Day in 2018 so its owner can enjoy retirement. A staple of The Wanderer's car club, annual attendees of the NJ State Fair/Sussex County Farm and Horse Show, and baseball fans from the stadium across the street, many folks expressed their feelings across social media about the closure.
The kind, fun folks at Askin & Hooker reached out looking for new corporate headshots and general office and team photos to welcome a slew of new hires, and I was excited for a new challenge. Luckily, we were able to plan for a beautiful sunny day to capture some natural-light, easygoing headshots to best convey their professional but friendly personalities.
Newton, NJ has been known for many things over the years... its massive shoe factory in the late 1800s, being the birthplace of Wet Hot American Summer star Janeane Garofalo, and now for miraculously transforming its shopping district into the magical Diagon Alley from the world of Harry Potter.
When Heidi first reached out to me to inquire about capturing her wedding at Triplebrook Camping Resort, she used three descriptive phrases in particular that I explicitly remember: Simple, local, and "really laid back", and that couldn't have been more true. Sometimes it can seem like a pipe dream for a bride to be calm and collected on her wedding day, but I think even I ended up being more worried that everything would be perfect!
