This wedding season couldn’t have closed out any better for us this fall season than this awesome wedding at a stunning venue at the Merion in Cinnaminson, NJ. We started of the day at the Crowne Plaza in Cherry Hill, NJ where Zyreen and Sanford also had their first look, before we celebrated at The Merion for the remainder of the day. Though I must say that this wedding day, the first look helped us out a lot if not, saved the day for us. You ask why? I’ll get to that in a bit.

At the Crowne Plaza we go where they both had their pre-ceremony preparations. It was a blessing to have great weather to start of the day.
What a beautiful wedding gown that was brought over from the Philippines!
On the other side of things, we go to the groomsmen.
Time for the first look! We picked an outdoor location as the hotel lobby was really busy due to an event happening.
We arrived to an area at Cooper river Park and got our stunner bridal party shot.
And our signature image of the day!
The Merion in Cinnaminson was the perfect venue for our couple Zyreen and Sanford. This new garden built this year is perfect for outdoor ceremonies, The Merion did an outstanding job on this one.
Because of the area restrictions, the ceremony area was not available early on, pushing the schedule a bit back, thus the only hour gap between the end of the ceremony to the start of reception got even shorter. This is why the first look may have saved the day for us. I know it is not for everyone but in this case, it really helped our schedule tremendously.
The things we needed had we not done the first look was, I’ll just say would not have been enough time to get and especially when, (this was the biggest reason) as soon as the ceremony ended, it poured like the monsoon! That would not have been an ideal scenario to get natural looking photos for family formals, bridal party photos and the bride and groom shots. Not to say that it wasn’t doable, they would have just been indoors and wouldn’t look the same with the sun already had set at that time of the day. And now we move on the the party!
Our groom is an avid Philadelphia Eagles Football fan, what better way to showcase that than at your own wedding right?
EBE’s band Imagine rocked the house and kept everybody up on their feet!
Congratulations to Zyreen and Sanford! It was an absolute honor to be a part of your big day! Thank you also to the amazing team of vendors that made this day very successful. And lastly, a huge thanks my team, Craig and Chaiy.
