Everyone knows it; it’s one of the most recognized skylines in the world. From over 100 years of architecture to modern day skyscrapers such as the Empire States Building or the new height record holder, World Trade One, the New York City skyline is among the most sought after and photographed locations in the Northeast.
As familiar as this Manhattan may be, you will have to travel to New Jersey to get some of the most amazing views of this storied skyline.

One of the best ways to show guests your appreciation is by giving them favors at the end of the reception. Not only can you customize them to your liking, but also can prepare them yourself. But how do you choose from such an infinite list? We’ve narrowed the selection down in our photo gallery to help you decide.
Since our studio decided to offer photo booths, we have learned a great deal. Certain tips can help influence a couples decision when shopping for a photo booth for their wedding day.
As most couples know there are a few consistencies which all photo booth services must provide. If you are shopping a photo booth company, and they do not offer at least the minimum than you may want to look elsewhere.
1. Multiple printed strips for each photo session. (This will allow you to leave one image for the couple, sometimes in a scrap book, and keep one image as a keepsake.)
2. Multiple poses, printed for each photo session. Just about everyone you know will tell you that when they take a picture in a photo booth, they expect to take at least 3-4 pictures, which should be printed on a strip. The 4th spot in some cases is reserved for the wedding date, custom logo or monogram.
3. Black and white photographs and color photographs. (Most photo booths offer a variety of image options; however, at minimal, it should offer both black and white, as well as color images.
4. Attendant(s). This is imperative in the event the photo booth is not functioning properly.
The rest falls into a wide field of variety.

Choosing a favor for your summer wedding can be difficult. Why? Because of rising temperatures. Chocolates, caramels, popsicles and ice cream will all melt, but there are a few that won’t. Here’s what can withstand the heat (as long as they’re properly packaged):
Rosemary-Infused Olive Oil – An Italian specialty that’s easy to make. Gather fresh rosemary, let the herbs sit out until they’re bone dry, add to empty bottles, pour olive oil in and seal with a cork.
Canned Strawberry Preserves – Say you love them “berry” much with a jar of strawberry jam.
Sunflower Seeds – If you’re having a seasonal summer bouquet, it’s only suitable to pass out salted sunflower seeds to match. Or in preparation for fall, give guests pumpkin seeds to plant and watch grow.
Saltwater Taffy – Perfect for a beach wedding, local saltwater taffy will add pops of color to your dessert display.
BBQ Sauce – Help add some grilling flavor to your guests’ backyard bites.
