As a preferred vendor at the Cafe Madison in Riverside, NJ I have had the pleasure of photographing several weddings at their venue. Some included ceremonies on-site in the courtyard and some in the wine cellar. Each wedding was unique, beautiful and handled perfectly by the staff at Cafe Madison. The venue has a large ballroom, bridal suite, outdoor courtyard and wine cellar. The outdoor courtyard is my favorite. The stone walls add a rustic vibe to the space and at the night it is lit by strings of light bulbs and a warm fireplace. The wedding in this photo was a spring wedding. Like most weddings the weather was unpredictable, raining one minute and beautifully sunny the next. We couldn't travel far for photos since the timeline did not allow it so all of the bride and groom and bridal party photos were taken on-site at the Madison. As luck would have it the rain stopped leaving enough time for photos outside. To make things even luckier, the sun came out for the outdoor ceremony held in the courtyard. Noreen Turner Photography specializes in city weddings in Philadelphia but since the studio is located nearby in Riverton, NJ, a lot of South Jersey weddings are booked throughout the year. The Madison is one of my favorite places to work in South Jersey not only because it is beautiful but because the staff is always on top of things and accommodating to their guests.
