In early June of 2016, Liz and I took a journey to an event that we had no idea that we were going to have to try to survive… it was a Savage wedding… or in another manner of speaking, it was the wedding of Melissa Branagan to Michael Savage, a wedding in which this couple emerged as Savages! Mr. & Mrs. Savage to be exact. As fun as that all is to say, the fact is that very few days in our long careers as Red Bank wedding photographers were so easy to survive. The wedding took place on a beautiful day and in some of our favorite places.
Michael and Melissa took their very emotional vows at Allaire State Park but unlike any other wedding we have photographed there, it took place not in the tiny chapel but in front of the beautiful gazebo on park grounds. Very nice!
The Molly Pitcher Inn was our next stop and for Liz and I, that place is like our home away from home. There was in fact nothing at all savage about this day… Michael and Melissa were so sweet and there was just so much fun to be had. Yes… somehow, we survived!
Happy 1st Anniversary to Michael & Melissa! Thanks for the coffee cups! Please, keep in touch!

I have always jokingly said that if you’re going to call your restaurant “RATS”, you had better be sure that you are beyond excellent! This is where Rats, in Hamilton, NJ hits the mark perfectly… they live up to the “hope”. : ) The same can be said for paper flowers… if you are going to make them for a wedding, they better be beyond excellent and well… this family spent a good part of a year before the wedding doing just that; making the perfect flowers (little sculptural beauties) for a wedding at New Jersey’s primer sculpture garden, Grounds for Sculpture.
That day, they became Andrew & Alexandria Chiusano, surrounded by family, friends and the captivating sculpture, “The Nine Muses”. Once the ceremony ended, it was a short walk to Rats where all were treated to amazing culinary delights and unforgettable moments!
We present this wedding as proof that an amazing wedding celebration can be captured in photography in just 6 short hours! Ali & Andrew, thanks for paying so much attention to detail and treating us all to this thoughtful day of sensory delights!
Happy 1st Anniversary! May the rest of your days be as wonderful as your wedding day!
Bob & Liz
