Battello Wedding - Jersey City, NJ

Four years ago, I had the great pleasure of photographing the wedding of Julie & Patrick at The Magic Gardens & World Cafe.  (Blog here: http://www.melissahassey.com/2010/12/philadelphias-magic-gardens-world-cafe-live-wedding/).  As with so many of my clients, we easily became friends and have stayed in touch over the years.  That said, I was extreme[...]
