On March 17th, 2023, Blue Moon Video Productions had the pleasure of capturing a beautiful wedding at the stunning Pleasantdale Chateau located at 757 Eagle Rock Ave in West Orange, New Jersey. The day was filled with joy, love, and some unique touches that truly made this wedding one to remember.

As soon as we arrived at the venue, we could see that the attention to detail was impeccable. The grounds were beautifully manicured with evergreen trees and early spring budding flowers, and the chateau itself was an elegant backdrop for the day's events. The bride and groom were both beaming with happiness, and their love for each other was evident in every moment we captured.

But what really made this wedding unique was the groom's profession as a firefighter. During the creative video and photo session, an antique red fire truck was brought to the venue, which made for some incredible video opportunities. We were able to capture some amazing footage of the groom and his bride posing with the truck.

The wedding itself was a beautiful affair, with the ceremony taking place in a stunning ballroom fine mol dinging and a domed ceiling. The bride looked absolutely stunning in her flowing white gown, and the groom looked dashing in his formal attire. As the couple exchanged their vows and rings, there wasn't a dry eye in the house.

The reception was held in a beautiful ballroom, and it was clear that every detail had been carefully planned. The tables were adorned with elegant floral arrangements of peach and white roses and the band kept the dance floor packed all night long.

As a wedding videography studio, we've had the opportunity to capture countless weddings over the years, but this one was truly special. The love between the bride and groom was palpable, and the addition of the antique fire truck made for some unforgettable moments. We're grateful to have been a part of their big day, and we wish the happy couple all the best in their future together.

When two people fall in love, it can be just like the movies: magical, romantic, exciting and unique. That is just what happened to two newlyweds, Ken and Rachel. On their first date, in the car on the way to the movie theatre, Rachel remembers falling in love instantly on the car ride there, just as Ken reached his hand out to meet hers. It was evident that they would have a future. To top it all off, their first date proved to unlike no other when they had their first kiss and it all “felt right” and that “he’d be the one”. 

Just like their first date, the couple decides to wed in the amazing landmark of The Loew’s JerseyTheater. Originally, opened in 1929 and located in Jersey City, NJ, this elegant and whimsical facility is the perfect setting for a quaint and romantic ceremony, along with a fabulous reception venue. Everything is falling into place at the Westin as the bride, groom, and wedding party prepare for the nuptials. The bride looks stunning in an off white beaded strapless gown and veil, adorned with perfectly done makeup and a delighted smile. The groom looks handsome in a black tux, bow tie and a smile to match his gorgeous bride’s. 

The wedding party, comprised of 15 people, and with quests, witness the exchange of vows and devotion of love and adoration for one another underneath the softly lit theatre. The reception is spectacular! The white flowers and great center pieces, along with an awesome DJ, provides for amazing dancing, eating, socializing, and celebrating Ken and Rachel’s happy and unforgettable occasion. Friends, family, and especially the happy couple are ecstatic. The wedding is timeless, classic, and without any uncertainty, Ken and Rachel’s wedding is…a wedding to remember.
