Immerse yourself in the enchanting ‘Tides Estate Wedding Photography’ experience as we unfold the magical day of Mackie and Chris. Set against the stunning backdrop of The Tides Estate in New Jersey, their wedding day was a celebration of love, meticulously captured through our lenses. Indeed, the early morning air buzzed with excitement as our team, dressed in professional blacks, prepared to document every moment.

Preparation: A Prelude to Perfection

With a call time set at the break of dawn, our team was imbued with the spirit of anticipation, dressed in our professional blacks, cameras in hand, ready to capture the raw, unfiltered beginning of what was to be a day filled with laughter, tears, and everything in between. The air was crisp, the venue was stirring to life, and the promise of love was palpable as we stepped into The Tides Estate.

Firstly, the bridal suite became a sanctuary of serenity and excitement as Mackie, adorned in elegance, began her preparations. Moreover, across the hall, Chris and his groomsmen shared moments of camaraderie, their laughter echoing the joy that the day was to bring. Furthermore, the garden provided a perfect backdrop for the intimate first look, where time seemed to stand still as their eyes met.

The First Look: A Moment Suspended in Time

As tradition met anticipation, Mackie and Chris chose to see each other before the ceremony. The garden, with its weather-permitting grace, provided the perfect backdrop for this intimate exchange. The first look was a testament to the power of a moment—time seemed to stand still as their eyes met, a silent promise of forever passing between them.

The Ceremony: Where Two Worlds Become One

The ceremony was a beautiful blend of tradition and personal touch. From the processional to the exchange of vows, each moment was a thread in the tapestry of their love story. The reading from 1 Corinthians 13:4-8a and Ecclesiastes 4:9-12 not only grounded the ceremony in spiritual wisdom but also in the universal truth of love’s enduring strength.

As they were pronounced Mr. and Mrs. Chan, the air was filled with the fragrance of petal tosses, a colorful celebration of their newly minted union.

The Reception: A Celebration of Love

The reception was nothing short of magical. From the couple’s entrance, heralded by cold sparklers, to their first dance on clouds, every detail was a reflection of their love and journey together. The rapid-fire group photo, a vibrant tableau of the couple surrounded by their loved ones, encapsulated the essence of the day—unity, joy, and boundless love.

Our lenses didn’t just capture images; they captured emotions, stories, and the unspoken language of love that danced in the eyes of Mackie and Chris and every single person present.


As the day drew to a close, and we packed our gear, the overwhelming sense of fulfillment wasn’t just from having captured beautiful moments but from having been a part of a story much greater than ourselves. Mackie and Chris’s wedding was not just an assignment; it was a reminder of why we do what we do. It was a celebration of love, of two paths intertwining, of the beginning of a journey best traveled together.

Thank you, Mackie and Chris, for letting us into your lives, if only for a day, and for showing us that in a world of fleeting moments, love remains constant, eternal, and ever so beautiful.
