The Westwood is the go-to wedding venue in Garwood, New Jersey. It is a family-oriented venue with a rich history of over 50 years. It’s close to many beautiful parks and ideal locations to photograph if you’re in a time pinch. The venue itself has a nice gazebo, and the beautiful interior design allows for great photographs. The sparkler exit was the easiest to accomplish with the nice long strip in front of the venue.
From a photography aspect, the venue didn’t pose any challenge at all which is honestly a great thing on a stressful wedding day! Depending on the weather the outside gazebo makes a great place for bride and groom photos, family photos, and even the bridal party photos. Having an all-white interior and ceiling makes it even easier to use flash even at low settings. With all the challenging lighting situations on wedding days, it’s always a breath of fresh air to have an easier relaxed day.
