I’ve been excited to start back up with my Wedding Wish-List series in the new year! I have some great stuff coming up that I’m really looking forward to sharing with all of you. Lots of elegance, luxury, and lavish fabulousness on the way.
As a destination photographer, I have toyed with the idea of doing a different state every week this year — but that would honestly take up the entire year, and each state has so many great options! I still have plenty more to explore just in Florida, and I don’t want to take away from that, either. But I will definitely be doing some research on great locations outside of the area to aim for.
I teased this on facebook the other day based on this awesome image I found on Instagram:
This is the fabulous Venetian in New Jersey (otherwise known as Venetian NJ). A spectacular location if ever there was one. I have not yet done a wedding in New Jersey, but I would take a wedding here in a heartbeat!
With rich Italian marble columns, cathedral ceilings, and elaborate chandeliers, this hotel provides a classic, timeless elegance perfect for any wedding.
There is the beautiful Grand Ballroom (of course):
This space is just lovely, isn’t it? The crystal chandeliers are gorgeous, the little nooks and corners provide details and great photo opportunities. And I’m pretty sure that floor would be great to dance on!
But my favorite space is the Palazzo, which is featured in the Instagram shot above:

The ceiling is classically European, and that staircase is beyond gorgeous.
In addition to the on-site amenities, they can help you take care of all your other luxury wedding needs as well, with superb vendors of all types. You can get gorgeous professional lighting to create the perfect mood (a service I highly recommend for pretty much any wedding), fantastic wedding cakes, jewelry, limos, catering…the works.
Is it any wonder I am eager to photograph a wedding in such a place?
If you’re planning your own destination wedding, I would love to be a part of capturing your most beautiful memories! Visit my website and book your wedding today!
