1930s-style New Jersey prison wedding porn

Updated Oct 12 2015

Okay, wow, we got a doozie for you today. Wedding photographer Cindy Patrick alerted us to this incredible wedding she shot recently….

Sandra and Jay got married at an old prison in New Jersey. As Sandra put it, "We felt there was no place more perfect for our wedding than the Burlington County Historic Prison; a gorgeously structured building seemingly lost in time, untouched by the infectious monotony of modern society. It was here that my accomplice became my husband." And they both went through great lengths to recreate a 1930s era wedding and the resulting wedding porn is –ugh– amazing for lack of a better word…

Sandra wore a gorgeous vintage gown and Jay donned a pinstripe suit and black fedora a'la 1930s.
And they both sported authentic oxford swing dance shoes! Squee-alee!

I like to call this shot Prison Chique!

They even took mugshots -- that's the prison wedding spirit!

  1. This is by far my favorite wedding I've seen in my life. Beautiful photography, beautiful clothing, ugh, I die!

  2. OMG….the hair! the veil! I love that bird cage veil!!! I have been in search of a similar style for my wedding. If I had an inspiration board Sandra's picture would be on it.

  3. Jessie, you created such a beautiful, personal and unique ceremony for us! It was such a pleasure to work with you! Thank you so much! 🙂

  4. This was without a doubt the best wedding I've ever had the privilege of photographing. I can't thank Sandra + Jay enough for including me in their incredible day! I hope to hear more from couples like them who "dare to walk off the beaten aisle"!

    • Cindy, you are absolutely amazing!!! It was such an honor to have you as our photographer…you have so artfully captured our special moments and provided us the opportunity to eternally cherish these memories. You are truly by far the best!!! 🙂

  5. great photos! love the shoes!! are those airsoft guns? hahahhahah. great! all the photos on your site are beautiful, though i must admit your site is a bit hard to navigate for me and the lack of rates makes me think that i could never afford photos as beautiful as these (so jealous!!).

  6. Im speechless!!!! By far my favorite wedding photos I've ever seen!! And being a Jersey bride myself makes me fall even that more in love!!!!

  7. My fiance and I are doing wingtips, too! (We're having our shabang in a speakeasy.) I'm actually more excited for my shoes than my dress.

    This is really, really stunning. You both look amazing, and so happy. And your back tat, Sandra — WOW!

    • *ahem* I correct myself — a FORMER speakeasy, since, ya know… prohibition ended just a little while back there.
