There are lots of Italian restaurants in New Jersey and there are several the surrounding areas, but one of my all time favorites is La Piazza. I started a project of working with many of the business owners from the local business association to create promotional films for their websites and social media. Working with these businesses of Allentown not only was great because I know so many of the business owners, but it was awesome to help them show off their pride and joy. Jerry & Nino of La Piazza have this amazing father and son connection and see them run such a successful (and delicious) restaurant makes you want to be part of their family.
I really love last minute weddings. I love that couples decide the importance of a wedding film and how documenting their day, especially the ceremony, will be so important in years to come.
Alex & Justin called me only a week before their wedding date. The traditional catholic ceremony at the Church of St. Ann in Lawrenceville NJ was coupled with some tears, smiles and a beautiful lace wedding dress! Enjoy this sweet highlight of Alex & Justin saying their forever "I do's."
I have always had a love for painting pottery. I have a vivid memories painting pottery with my college bestie in Boston...and Vermont and NJ! So when Bloomers N Things in Allentown started offering pottery painting, I was in love. It is so relaxing to paint something and even if it sits in a closet when it's complete, I know I had a great time chatting with friends and being crafty.
Debbie, the owner of Bloomers N Things, opened up another pottery studio in Asbury Park called The Pink Elephant. The creative vibes flow off the shelves and into the little hands of children (and adults too) and onto beautiful pieces of art! Filming a fun(and maybe a little hectic!) afternoon of children painting and an evening with a ladies painting night I think we capture the essence of The Pink Elephant!
