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!

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!).

During the ceremony, everyone had teary eyes, until the wind came and took Marisa's veil straight into the air. All of our tears turned to a little giggle!

Columbus, NJ Engagement: Mike + Emily

As wedding season approaches, and my maternity leave comes to an end, I'm getting pumped up about getting back out and shooting.  Although Spring is officially here, I just had to share this dreamy Fall engagement session with Emily and Mike. I have to give the future groom all of the credit for finding this awesome location with the colorful foliage that all engaged couples dream of for their photos :) I am beyond excited to capture their big day in July!

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.

South Jersey Wedding Photographer: The Importance of a Wedding Album

So many clients want digital files, and I get it... IF you are planning to do something with them. Let's face it, life gets busy, and after the wedding, wedding planning is soon filled with another task, hobby, or priority. Then there is choosing your favorite photos- it can be a daunting task when left with hundreds of digitals and no guidance from a professional who's well-versed in album design. You may have all of your digital files, but what do you have to show for it? The reality of it is, most people are so busy, and while they have good intentions to make an album, or have prints and canvases made, they just don't have the time.  

It's important to have a wedding album... but not just a wedding album made on a consumer website, a *professional album.* A leather cover, thick pages, and great quality... quality that says 'this book is going to make it to my children's children' because photographs are precious. They capture a time in someone's lives that words could never explain and I think that every couple needs an heirloom to pass down and that deserves more than a skimpy book!

Here are some photographs of a recent wedding album from Kelly & Kevin's wedding at Barn on Bridge. Their wedding was so gorgeous it needed two blog posts, check them out here and here.  I love the color of leather they chose, it's so vibrant and fun.
