Ridley Creek State Park Engagement, Pennsylvania: Joe + Amy

Joe and Amy wanted a gorgeous location for their engagement photos with lots of greenery and somewhere their pups could enjoy as well. They came up with the gorgeous Ridley Creek State Park in Pennsylvania and I'm so glad they did! The Hunting Hill Mansion at Ridley Creek State Park, is now used as a wedding venue, and my goodness, how could you go wrong with such a stunning backdrop? Amy and Joe are so much fun to be around- joking every minute, so grabbing smiles was not an issue! Cheers to Amy and Joe’s gorgeous Ridley Creek engagement session!

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. :)

Stockton Seaview Hotel and Golf Club Wedding, Galloway, New Jersey: KC and Meredith

Meredith and KC are pretty much my dream clients... not only are they buying me peanut M&M's every time they see me (this is amazing) but they are so genuinely sweet! Meredith and KC both completely trusted me with every detail when it came to their photos and I think any photographer will agree- this is the best possible thing for creativity! They were just so much fun to be around, there's lots of joking going on, but when things get serious (like the ceremony), there are tears and there's nothing like someone showing their genuine emotions. As I edited their wedding, there were SO many emotions and Meredith's face showed each one! Clearly, I can't stop gushing about them. Their love is so sweet and I have no doubt that in 10, 20, or even 50 years, they will still be just as crazy about each other as they were on their wedding day. Very best wishes to you, Mr. and Mrs. Koseoglu!

New Jersey Farm Wedding: Miranda and Mike

THE DETAILS

Venue: DelVicario's Turkey Trac Farms

Gown: Maggie Sottero

Makeup: Carol Gale

Hair: Jacinda Roagers

Florals: Donna Guarrera

Cake: Terrigno's Bakery

DJ: DJ Jamie B

Miranda and Mike were high school sweethearts, and when Mike popped the question, they were both ready for a giant party to celebrate their growing relationship! In early October, they celebrated at DelVicario's Turkey Trac Farms (the Bride's family farm), with it's debut celebration and boy, was it lovely. Complete with antiques from Royal Port Antiques, every square inch of the Barn had been thought of in great detail. Burlap, lace, cowgirl boats- are you getting the picture? It was absolutely heaven to shoot. The bride and groom have strong family ties, so it was completely appropriate that their wedding date was just one day after the bride's parents' anniversary and on the groom's grandparents' anniversary as well. Despite the rain that didn't let up, their day was absolutely perfect in every way. I'm so happy for Miranda and Mike as they change their status from "high school sweethearts" to "husband and wife."

Princeton Battlefield State Park Engagement: Brian and Christina

Christina and I worked together years ago- I instantly liked her. She's creative, funny, has a great taste for music, and a heart of gold. When she got engaged, I had dreams about shooting her wedding, literally. Weird? Maybe. But I was so excited for her and I was even more excited when she reached out to me! I was honored to meet the man that won Christina's heart. Brian is nice, has a great sense of humor, and makes Christina giggle like no other! We had a great time chatting about buying houses, wedding planning, and the long list of concerts they were going to see. I'm so happy for Christina and Brian as they start the next chapter in their life, and I'm even more excited that I'm the lucky one to photograph it all. Can't wait!

Auletto Caterers Wedding, Almonesson, NJ: Bill and Carla

From the time I photographed their engagement session, I knew their wedding was going to be particularly fun! Bill and Carla both have careers in music, so singing and dancing through the day, comes naturally. While Carla stepped into her wedding gown, all the girls started belting "Going to the Chapel," it was such a happy moment! At Auletto Caterer's, where the ceremony and reception took place, Bill and Carla started their day with a heartfelt First Look. After that we took care of bridal party portraits and family formals. During an outdoor ceremony, Carla's older brother officiated the ceremony making it extra special. The reception was filled with endless dance moves and a surprise serenade of Ingrid Michaelson's "Take Me the Way I Am." I adore that song!  Here's to a lifetime of happiness, Mr. and Mrs. Graff!

Carla and Bill are both musically gifted. So besides Carla singing all morning while she was getting ready (loved it) there was a piano in their home- perfect for a ring shot!

Carla's brother officiated the ceremony, so when he offered support while Carla read her vows, I think we all let out an extra cry.

Barclay Farmstead Engagement, Cherry Hill, NJ: Joe and Jaclyn

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!

Normandy Farm Wedding, Blue Bell, PA: David and Marisa

In late May, we set out for Normandy Farm in Blue Bell, Pennsylvania for Marisa and David's wedding. I was so in love with Marisa's handmade paper floral bouquet with yellow, green, and coral flowers that she made herself! Other special details included her wedding invitation suite designed by one of her bridesmaids who is a graphic designer, a gorgeous cathedral veil (that was a thrift store find!), and her yellow Mary Janes. Marisa and David met just outside of the reception area at Normandy Farm for their First Look. I love First Looks for sooooo many reasons, but the best part is watching how emotional the bride and groom are on their wedding day. Watching Marisa's face as she saw David for the first time that day was so special. I remember asking her while she was getting ready, "What are you looking forward most to today?" and she answered, "I just want to get married." Marisa and David light up every time they see each other and they have such an amazing connection that was so evident as I spent the day with them. Their ceremony was an outdoor ceremony in front of Normandy Farm's signature white and red barn, complete with a huge gust of wind that carried Marisa's veil straight up in the air, making everyone laugh. Their reception space at Normandy Farm was filled with gorgeous twinkle lights and more gorgeous floral accents throughout. There was a soft, romantic vibe as Marisa and David had their first dance as a married couple. They danced the night away before we could sneak them away for one more shot of them in their bridal suite (see the last photo!).
