Crescent Shrine Wedding, Westampton, NJ: Alex and Ali

I couldn't be more excited for Ali and Alex's wedding after their gorgeous golden hour engagement session last August at Cooper River. We started off at the Masonic Village in Burlington, NJ for both Ali and Alex's getting ready. After checking the weather continuously leading up to their wedding day, we lucked out with just a few quick showers while they were getting dressed. The rain had no stopping our plans of shooting around the property. They did a First Look at the Carriage House on the property, where Ali revealed her gorgeous bridal self, and Alex revealed his timeless kilt. We met up with the bridal party and took a trolley ride just down the street to the farm house. While snapping bridal party portraits, I felt like I was shooting a destination wedding because of the gorgeous grounds and the guys in their kilts. We even got a little peek of what a groom and his men wear under their kilts on a wedding day. Yes, you read that correctly. (I'll rate the below photo PG-13 no nudity, just cool undies.) We headed back to the chapel for their unplugged ceremony, followed by a bubble exit! So much fun. The newly married Mr. and Mrs. Churney hopped on the trolley with their closest pals to the reception at Crescent Shrine in Westampton, NJ. Ali and Alex shared a first dance to "You're My Best Friend," by Queen (a personal favorite), followed my SO much more dancing, including a special group dance by the groomsmen. Ali and Alex are such an awesome couple. I could tell by watching them interact with their wedding guests- there was just so. much. love. Congratulations to the new Mr. and Mrs. Churney, it was simply amazing.

Wedding day jitters! I directed Ali and her mom to hold hands and they couldn't remember how to hold hands. It was hilarious and adorable all at the same time.

I have to give a big shout out to Bob and Lola LoRusso. They are they best photographers I know. They shot my wedding (almost seven years ago) and have been such great mentors, they've been there for me whenever I need them. It was so nice to get them in front of my camera!
