NJ Wedding

Collingswood Grand Ballroom Wedding: Meg + Eric

Meg and Eric have been wedding planning from Chicago, so when their wedding day arrived and I finally got to meet them in person- I was beyond excited. Meg is the kind of girl you've always wanted to be friends with- she's so funny, sweet, and shares all of her emotion- she lights up a room! When Meg and Eric get together their chemistry is undeniable! They are so sweet and kind to each other and I'm beyond happy for them- I can't imagine how happy their family is for them, witnessing a perfect match.

Both bride and groom started at The Westin hotel in Mount Laurel, NJ for their getting ready. Meg and her bridesmaids prepped and shared so many special moments while Eric got.... a haircut in his hotel room! I was so excited for my second photographer, Danielle, that she was going to be able to capture it (maybe a little jealous too)! It's a wedding day first, and soooo much fun. Meg put on her gorgeous gown at the Collingswood Grand Ballroom before meeting her groom outside for their First Look, with their family and friends watching from afar. We were able to capture their bridal party, bride and groom portraits, and family portraits before rain clouds started moving in.

Their indoor ceremony, complete with a beautifully decorated chuppah by Leigh Florist, and the romantic candles and twinkle lights at the Collingswood Grand Ballroom, made for the perfect setting for their "I do"s. Their reception started with the most fun hora, followed by a lively dance floor and soooo much celebrating for our happy couple. Thank you so much to Mr. and Mrs. Gold for letting us capture your best day ever!

Smithville Mansion, New Jersey Engagement Session: Scott and Rebecca

If you've been following my work, you've probably noticed this location pop up quite a few times- Historic Smithville Mansion in Mount Holly, New Jersey. My couples love this gorgeous location and it's easy to see why- there's so much variety and looks amazing in every season... not to mention the gorgeous sunset over the lake. Rebecca and Scott are getting married in just a few months and what better way to celebrate than an engagement session. When I saw Rebecca in a white tulle skirt, I was SO excited! I love when couples get a little fancy for their session- it's so inspiring. I was also excited to see Milo, their excited little guy! We had a great evening- see for yourself. :)

Rose Bank Winery Wedding, Newtown, PA: Roy and Erin

As a photographer, I'm always looking for raw emotion and waiting to capture it. Sometimes these moments, seconds really, happen so quickly, and other times you can predict the emotions that are about to happen. On Erin and Roy's wedding day, there was PLENTY of emotion to go around. It makes my heart so happy to see a bride and a groom that are so open with their emotions. The way Roy looked at Erin throughout the day was so sweet. You could tell that he felt like the luckiest man alive marrying Erin. During the ceremony there were so many happy tears from so many. The ceremony and reception took place at Rose Bank Winery in Newtown, PA and it was stunning from start to finish. Congrats to Erin and Roy on the start of a new and beautiful chapter!

Grounds for Sculpture Wedding Session, Hamilton, NJ: Joe and Jamie

Jamie and Joe's first professional wedding photograph includes the Easter Bunny... seriously (how cool!). They were married late March surrounded by close family at the Voorhees Town Center in a private ceremony. Immediately after, they got in line to take a photograph with the Easter Bunny, wedding dress and all. Jamie and Joe decided that they would like to celebrate their marriage with a wedding session at Grounds for Sculpture in Hamilton, New Jersey.  If you've never been there, I would highly recommend a day trip- it's so completely peaceful and a great mixture of art and nature. We had such an amazing time in our own private golf cart complete with a tour guide! Jamie and Joe are such a fun, down-to-Earth couple and crazy about each other. A couple of weeks after our session, it was so much fun sitting with them in-person to reveal their wedding photographs. It was so sweet to hear Joe compliment Jamie on how beautiful she is, and to hear her compliment how great his hair... I mean, how great HE looked too! Congrats Jamie and Joe!

One "must-have" shot when you shoot at Grounds for Sculpture is along this tree-lined path. It was early April, so the trees were bare, but it still made for such a gorgeous shot.

Gotta love more bamboo and my all-time favorite tree at Grounds for Sculpture- I'm not a tree expert by any means, but I love a good weeping tree- makes for gorgeous backdrops for wedding and engagement photographs.

Jack's Barn, Oxford, NJ Wedding: Nando and Ali

When I arrived at Jack's Barn, Nando was arranging chairs, along with his closest friends and family, while Ali took at break from setting up, to get her hair and makeup done. When all was complete, it was just as Ali described it would be in our previous conversations, but better- sunflowers, royal blues, mismatched furniture, small mementos and photographs everywhere, countless string lights leading to gorgeous chandeliers... pinch me. 

Ali, Nando, and their family headed over to Twenty Belvidere, just down the road for their getting ready, first look, and family photos. The mansion was filled with charm, and again, I needed to be pinched! 

While leads me to Ali and Nando... not only was their wedding just breathtaking, but they are just the most adorable couple you've ever seen. So, so, so in love. Just as we were waiting for Ali to come down the steps for their First Look, Nando appeared to be nervous, and yes, he just saw her an hour ago (maybe less), but that's how in love they are. They are so sweet, and so thoughtful, I need more of them in my life!

I can't think of any other way I would want to welcome the wedding season for 2015, rather than with Ali and Nando! Congrats to you two, it was such an honor to capture your wedding day. A special thank you to an awesome friend for assisting me in capturing this great day, Sue!
