Jaclyn and Joe had been planning on a beach engagement session and then the weather stepped into our plans. They were flexible and we decided to stay local for their engagement session. When they asked for suggestions on the perfect location, of course I mentioned Barclay Farmstead in Cherry Hill, NJ. It's a hidden gem just minutes away from the bustling highway yet so private. I love that there is so much variety in one location- plus it's dog friendly! Jaclyn and Joe brought their amazing dog- Cooper! They were all so much fun and easy to photograph (yes, you Cooper)! Don't worry, there's more of that adorable guy as soon as their wedding hits the blog. I absolutely love when dogs make an appearance at an engagement session AND even more so when they are involved on the wedding day!
It was a hot Friday in August when Allena & James exchanged vows in their beautiful home surrounded by their closest family and friends. Not only was this wedding so sweet because Allena and James are adorable together, but because it symbolized the joining of two awesome families- Allena and her three gorgeous daughters and handsome son, and James and his handsome son. Allena and James did a first look in their backyard and exchanged vows in their living room. I love the thought of creating such amazing memories like marrying your best friend, in your house. I would never move! After they were married on Friday, Allena, James and their five kids left for Jamaica. Hope you had a great time!
