It feels like just yesterday that I was at Allaire State Park with Andrea and Shaun for their engagement session and now they are married!! The morning of their wedding was calm and joyful. Andrea’s parents were so warm and welcoming. We had the perfect set up for Andrea’s details in her mom’s room. We laid out all the pretty details and I was so happy to see she included the ring dish that came in her Amanda Dolly Photography Welcome package! As we were looking for a spot to hang her gorgeous Justin Alexander dress, one of us noticed a hook in the ceiling in the PERFECT spot. Not only was the lighting fantastic there, but there was a photo of her parents on their wedding day hanging right next to it! It’s as if this corner of the room was made for Andrea’s dress. After mom crocheted Andrea’s dress up she was ready for her first look with dad, which was so sweet and emotional! Before leaving for the church we took everyone outside in their beautiful backyard for a few portraits. The weather that day was hot but not TOO hot, thank God! Andrea + Shaun’s ceremony was beautiful and after they became husband and wife we headed to Spring Lake for portraits of the two and their bridal party. Divine Park is one of my favorite spots, it’s so gorgeous! The reception was held at the incredible and quaint Mill at Lakeside Manor. I absolutely love it here from the location, to the cute little dock, to the staff! There is an adorable swan family that lives on the lake and we were given popcorn to feed them!! It was so fun. The ballroom was stunningly decorated and the lighting in there was amazing. Everyone had so much fun dancing the night away and it was such an honor to capture this truly beautiful day!
Congratulations Andrea + Shaun!
Enjoy the photos :)
