Wedding Photography – Alken Photo Studios

Kazz Music Orchestra at The WatersideWe recently had the opportunity to work with Alken Photo Studios for Chris and Tricia’s wedding at The Waterside in North Bergen, NJ and they were nice enough to share some of their photos of the band with us (including the one posted here!).  Check out the album from the wedding by clicking HERE.  I think it will only be available until mid-December.  You can also check out their website at www.alkenphoto.com.  They were awesome partners throughout the planning process, and communicated really well the day of the wedding, so from our perspective, they’re the kind of vendor that we love to work with!  When I have some time, you’ll end up seeing more of their photos on our site, as there are quite a few good ones!

Wedding at The Waterside – North Bergen, NJ

The Waterside - ViewWe had the pleasure of playing for Chris and Tricia’s wedding at The Waterside in North Bergen, NJ recently.  This was our first time at The Waterside, and it was a wonderful event.  Chris and Tricia put together a beautiful wedding.  It featured our pianist, Andrea Shaut playing for the ceremony.  At Chris’ request, Andrea played Radiohead and Elton John songs as prelude music, and then the couple chose some beautiful classical music for their actual ceremony music.   The view in this photo was the backdrop for their outdoor ceremony, which was right on the Hudson River.  Not bad, right?

Our guitarist, Danny, played acoustic guitar for the cocktail hour – a wide range of acoustic rock tunes from the 70s up through today. 

For the reception, The Kazz Music Orchestra was there to rock out for the guests.  We were a 7 piece band.  The reception room at The Waterside is fantastic, with large windows providing a beautiful backdrop of Manhattan.  Speaking with Chris about the venue, he made a great point, you can’t get such an incredible view of Manhattan like this if you’re in Manhattan!  It was a beautiful night, and we are very thankful to Chris and Tricia for having us be a part of their amazing wedding!
