FNA Events Presents Real Weddings: Amanda and Brian at Valley Regency, Clifton NJ

Updated: Jan 23

Welcome back! It's time to showcase another spectacular wedding from 2022. Are you ready to see a wedding where they threw it down as hard as they possibly could? Want to see elegance meets party animals, live music, and dancing robots? Look no further!

FNA Events started coverage of the day at bride and groom prep at Valley Regency. This venue is especially cool for bride prep because the gorgeous and spacious bridal suite leads right down to the space for an outdoor ceremony. Amanda and her guests were ready to party, Mom was rockin' jorts, and FNA's photo video team brought the energy to match once again.

Carlos Alvarado, the FNA OG, served as lead photographer setting up some great detail shots to start the day. We moved through bride prep photos as hair and makeup were finishing up and the ladies were guzzling mimosas. Check out some of the flicks!

Brian was lookin' quite fresh himself, decked out in a white jacket and his crew was lookin' to have a blast as well. Check out what the second photographer captured as we ramped up for what we knew was gonna be a great party!

Next, the team set up for the first look outside in an area overlooking the outdoor ceremony space. This is always such a great moment to capture. We love it! Portraits and bridal party photos followed. Fun photos, traditional photos, we did it all! FNA's videographer Michael Vincent captured the very special note reads as well as multiple angles for the first look to capture both reactions.

Next, it was time to get married! This iconic ceremony space served as an amazing platform for this young couple to tie the knot. A string quartet welcomed guests with impressive music as they entered the ceremony. The numerous bridesmaids and groomsmen marched in and lined up along the side staircases to form beautiful symmetry as everyone witnessed the event!

Amazing! A portrait session followed along with some more group photos with family and friends. Cocktail hour was off the chain which was no surprise because everything up to this point was top-notch. As this portion of the day ended, the guests had no idea of the perfect storm that was brewing in the ballroom as the DJ's team plus live musicians geared up to rock this party with all sorts of production!

Formalities were seamless and beautiful: intros, first dances, and speeches. Then the DJ team headlined by DJ Meatball pulled out all sorts of tricks: uplighting, intelligent lighting, sparklers, and C02. FNA's Adam Hutcheson and "Rego Time" played along with the music on saxophone with live drums making this party extra lit. The guests at this party were no strangers to the dance floor.

Just when we thought this party couldn't get any more hype, a 7-foot eleven-inch dancing robot equipped with LEDs stomped in like a transformer and joined the bride and groom on the dance floor for an hour-long dance set. If you were a guest looking for an insta or snap story photo op, you were scrambling for your phone... because you're not hiring a dancing robot to show off in your living room, right!? Thanks to Amanda and Brian for footing the bill!

We closed this thing out in a whirlwind. There was plenty of dance floor action all night. The fan favorite was the use of C02 guns and sparklers. The couple took it a step further and had snacks waiting for them outside the ballroom in the form of their favorite fast food vendors, parting gifts, desserts, and more. What a show!

Here are some of the photo highlights from the end of the night, plus their full-length cinematic video and video highlight!

Did you see the drone footage from the ceremony? Dayyummm!!!

See you next time!
