We’re so excited about New Jersey’s new marriage equality law that a bunch of us in have got together to create a Pop Up Nuptials Night to provide free wedding ceremonies for couples desiring to make their partnerships legal in the Garden State.
Doug Nevick, a wedding photographer and owner of Douglas James Studios will be on hand to photograph the historic weddings for the couples who choose to get married at the pop up event. “EVERYONE deserves beautiful imagery on his or her wedding day…Oh, I’ll be there.”
Alisa Tongg performs a wedding with photographer Doug Nevick of Douglas James Studio capturing the candid moments.
Civil wedding ceremonies will be performed for any couple who present a valid New Jersey marriage License by Alisa Tongg, an award-winning wedding Celebrant and an ordained non-denominational minister, “Couples may bring their own vows to exchange, glass to stomp on, broom to jump over, or any other tradition they would like to incorporate. Of course, signing of the marriage license will be a ritual included in each ceremony performed that night.”
The newly weds are invited to stick around after they say “I do” to enjoy a complimentary wedding reception, with wedding cake and all, provided by the evening’s gracious hosts, 9th and Coles Tavern.
There’s currently a 72-hour wait period for a marriage license in the state of New Jersey, so interested couples will need to make arrangements with their local participating courthouse early this week for Sunday’s event.
