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!

The bamboo at Grounds for Sculpture makes the perfect backdrop for wedding photos.

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.

Like any photographer, I shrieked when I saw a gorgeous cherry blossom- and that engagement ring... great job, Joe!

We ended the session how any good session ends- with a peacock in the background.

The Hotel ML Wedding, Mount Laurel, NJ: Steve and Christy

I was so happy to welcome the start of wedding season with Steve and Christy at the Hotel ML in Mount Laurel, New Jersey.

Here's a few thoughts about their wedding:

1- Christy's new last name will be "Fox," and I love how they incorporated it on their wedding day!

2- Christy's family has a tradition of making chocolate chip cookies every day of the week. Rumor has it, that she brought some cookies to her and Steve's first date and this MAY be one of the many reasons they are married today. She even made some to share with her bridal party (and photographers!!) for her wedding day. Can I just comment and say- best tradition ever?!

3- There were so many GENUINE smiles all day long! Not just the bride and the groom, but they had the happiest parents and the most easy-going bridal party. The whole gang was up for anything and everything to help celebrate.

4- I hear there quite a few doctors in attendance which I'm sure made all of their guests feel safe to drop the hottest dance moves they had on the dance floor. All. Night. Long.

Knowlton Mansion, Philadelphia, PA Wedding: Carl + Julia

When I think of Carl and Julia, I think "pure romance." I know so much of their story, because over the course of wedding planning, I became super close with Julia- so I'm going to list some reasons why I think they have such an amazing story.

-They grew up in the same neighborhood. Their moms are best friends!

-When Carl proposed, he set up an elaborate scavenger hunt that involved their grade school teacher, multiple family members, and of course, a stunning diamond.

-While Carl was overseas serving in the Army as a pilot, he made sure to send Julia flowers every month on their anniversary.

-They both ended their wedding vows with the same sentence.

To sum it up, they are absolutely perfect for each other. Their rustic/bohemian wedding at Knowlton Mansion, was the culmination of their relationship and I think everyone in the room was so happy to see them reunited at last, after a long eleven months apart. Thank you Carl for your service and thanks to Carl AND Julia for being just absolutely adorable and hilarious.
