Casey & James’ Vow Renewal, Nanina’s In the Park, Belleville, NJ, March 16, 2023
So VERY excited to finally get to post this couple’s big day. If you’ve followed along with Hitlin Photography the past few years, you may recognize these two. Casey and James were our FIRST couple to be affected by the Covid Pandemic back in 2020. We were all set to travel to NJ for their big day in March of 2020 and even had their final consult. A few days later, the world shut down and having Weddings was put on hold. The couple quietly got married in their home with very little family members present and Keith showed up to shoot just an hour of their day to capture the union. Fast forward to 3 YEARS later. Meanwhile, the couple welcomed a beautiful baby girl to the world. We were pumped to say the least to head South in March to finally capture their BIG celebration Day; making them now our LAST remaining Pandemic Couple to finally celebrate with family and friends. IT was a lovely day this March. Nanina’s in the Park goes above and beyond for their couples and it was such a treat to work at a new venue to us. When we arrived Casey was getting her makeup done. Once ready, she got dressed and had a quick first reveal with her little daughter which was so cute. James waited for his bride at the bottom of Nanina’s Grand Staircase where the couple had their first look. We moved around the property both inside and out to capture this beautiful couple. The couple had a vow renewal ceremony in the ballroom in front of all of their family and friends and we were able to make it outside one more time to get some shots with the Spring buds on the trees. Nanina’s had a killer Cocktail Hour that guests enjoyed and then the Reception got under way. DJ Victor James is so full of energy and got so many people up out of their seats to have a good time. The crowd even grabbed their linen napkins for some fun dancing to wave in the air. It was such a fun day and one we are so happy we got to finally capture for this couple. Congrats again Casey and James!
