I capture the unspoken — the glances, the silences — drawing from New York's pulse and the richness of global cultures. Every wedding is its own intricate narrative. Rooted in theatre and life's everyday rhythms, I document moments both transient and timeless.

Park Savoy Wedding

The Park Savoy Estate is a gorgeous wedding venue located in the heart of Florham Park, New Jersey. After photographing my first Park Savoy wedding here, it’s easy to see why!

The estate has a rich history. It was originally constructed in the 1870s as a private residence for a wealthy New York businessman. The estate has since undergone many renovations, and today, it is an amazing location for weddings.

The estate features over 19 acres of gorgeous gardens and grounds, offering a lovely backdrop for wedding photos. One of the most popular photo locations is the Grand Ballroom, with its elegant décor and grand chandeliers providing a luxurious setting. The ballroom can accommodate up to 500 guests, making it an excellent place for large weddings.

Another fabulous location for photos is the outdoor garden, which features a beautiful fountain and lush greenery. The garden is a popular ceremony spot, with its intimate setting and serene atmosphere providing the best backdrop for exchanging vows.

Couples can head to the estate’s formal staircase for a more dramatic setting. The staircase is a grand and imposing feature of the estate, making it a striking backdrop for wedding photos. (And again, you all know I love a staircase!)

Among the estate’s most unique features is its wine cellar. With its dim lighting and brick archways, it’s a romantic and intimate location for photos.

Florham Park is a great place for wedding photos, as well as the estate itself. The town’s parks and gardens, like Florham Park Arboretum and Frelinghuysen Arboretum, make beautiful backdrops for outdoor photos.

Nearby Morristown National Historical Park is another popular spot for photos. Its historic buildings and gardens provide an impressive and charming backdrop. The park is gorgeous in the fall when the leaves turn red and gold.

For couples who prefer an urban setting, Newark offers a variety of locations for wedding photos. The city’s historic Ironbound district features striking architecture and colorful murals, while Branch Brook Park is known for its cherry blossom trees.

Overall, the Park Savoy Estate and the surrounding area offer endless possibilities for beautiful wedding photos.
