W Hotel, Hoboken NJ | Intimate Wedding | Kimberley & Tom

It was at the W Hotel in Hoboken, New Jersey that Kimberley & Tom shared their intimate wedding ceremony with family and friends, as well as their fur-babies, Gamma & Waffles :).

Kimberly and Tom have their own businesses, running a nonprofit organization WE of Hudson County, and The Cuddly Cottage which involves caring for the doggies of Hoboken and beyond! Their love and passion for their dogs––Gamma and Waffles––is clear, so it’s obvious why they made sure to include them as part of their big day. Gamma wore the cutest little tutu dress, and Waffles looked sharp in his tiny tuxedo. I think everyone was dying of cuteness overload!

Kimberley and Tom took care of everything for their wedding day by themselves, and really succeeded in making it creative and special for their guests. They had a Photo Booth station, a guest sign-in book, Polaroid cameras, disposable cameras on the tables, a lovely brunch buffet, delicious oysters, and mimosas and bloody Mary’s that were free flowing. It was a fun atmosphere!

I can tell that Kimberley is an artist at heart and chose to do things that spoke to her. Her red dress was the statement piece and her crown and veil were unique. All of the vendors that they used were local, speaking to this couples love and appreciation for local artists. While exchanging their vows, they used inspiration from the HBO series, Game Of Thrones, and spoke the words as they put rings on each other’s fingers - “I am yours and you are mine, from this day until the end of my days”. That was a fun moment!

Once the sun came out, we went out on the path next to the Hudson River and captured some beautiful shots of the new Mr. & Mrs. Coming back to Lulu’s, at the W Hotel, there was dancing, fun activities, and lots of pictures & Polaroids taken against the photo backdrop. I was so sad to say goodbye to that wonderful day with this amazing couple, as it was filled with positive vibes, caring people, and fun energy. However, I know it won’t be the last time I see them:).

Congratulations Kimberley & Tom! Please give Gamma & Waffles a treat for me, and I can’t wait to see you again and have fun talks over coffee!
