McLoone's Pier House Wedding, NJ Wedding Photography{Nicole & Craig}

 
NCW5-159.jpg

Nicole and Craig's wedding day was amazing! I had such a great time with this awesome couple at their engagement session last year and I was so excited to photograph their Fall wedding at the always beautiful McLoone's Pier House. The weather could not have been better for a day in late October! These two LOVE the beach and it was really important for them to get lots of photos there :) Nicole and Craig had a sweet first look on the board walk and we took advantage of the gorgeous light and pavilion to get some beautiful portaits! Nicole looked stunning in her gown from Castle Couture and Craig looked so sharp with his tux and pink bow-tie.  Everything about this day flowed so smoothly! We had plenty of time between the first look and the ceremony to get all of the photos completed so that they were able to fully enjoy their cocktail hour! I was loving being on the beach so late in the season as it was almost completely empty and it felt like our own private spot! The details in this wedding were gorgeous! I loved the center pieces and soft pink and gold accents. The cake by Chocolate Carousel was adorable and fit right in with the beach theme. The reception was so much fun! I love a good Hora at a wedding! Everyone packed the dance floor and danced all night long. We even snuck out toward the end of the night for a nighttime shot on the boardwalk. I absolutely loved this wedding and am so thankful Nicole and Craig chose me and my team to capture their special day!

Congratulations Nicole and Craig!

Enhoy the photos :)

Molly Pitcher Inn Wedding, NJ Wedding Photography {Lauren & Mike}

Lauren & Mike's wedding was an absolute ball! The story of how I met these two is very unique. Lauren reached out to me when she and her fiancé first moved into their new house and inquired about an engagement session. I told her I had also moved into a new house and it turned out we live two blocks away! Soon after booking we discovered we were both expecting babies in August and our babies were born just 2 days apart! How crazy?!  Their sweet baby Michael was 2 months old at the wedding and wore the most adorable baby tuxedo :)
Lauren and Mike got married on the most gorgeous Fall day ever! I love all the colors in this wedding from the beautiful colors of Lauren's bouquet to Mike's maroon colored tux! They met at Riverside Gardens in Red Bank for their first look and Mike's reaction was priceless! We had a blast taking photos with the bridal party and baby Michael even joined for some adorable family photos. We then headed over to the Molly Pitcher Inn for family photos before the beautiful sunset ceremony. The Molly Pitcher has such a gorgeous view of the Navisink River! After the ceremony we ran over to the dock for a few more bride and groom portraits and then Lauren and Mike were able to enjoy cocktail hour with their guests. The reception was so much fun and the room with all of the chandeliers and white lights is so pretty! It was perfect for their wedding! Mike and Lauren were so cute together the whole night and I don't think they stopped smiling for a minute of it! (Also, they get the award for cutest cake topper ever!) I am so thankful to have met and become friends with these two. It was such an honor to capture their special day! 

Congratulations Lauren & Mike :)
Enjoy the photos!

St. Davids Golf Club, Villanova Wedding, PA Wedding Photography {Brian & Jeanna}

Brian & Jeanna's wedding was absolutely beautiful!!! These two were married on a perfect Fall day in October at the gorgeous Villanova University Chapel. We met up with them right before the ceremony to do some quick portraits of the bride and groom separately. The church is so stunning and the ceremony was perfect!  Since they are both Villanova alumni, it was really important for them to have their wedding photos on this beautiful campus. Their bridal party was so sweet and easy to work with and we moved through the portrait time so quickly we even had time to spare! We then headed over to the reception at St. David's Golf Club. This is a special place for me because it is where I shot my first ever wedding 7 years ago! Before the reception started we snuck out for a few more photos of just the two of them on the golf course to get some of that golden sunset. The reception was so much fun and the dance floor was going strong all night long! Everything about this day from start to finish was absolutely wonderful, from the gorgeous Fall colors to their beautiful sparkler send off. Brian and Jeanna are such a sweet couple and it was an honor to be chosen to capture their special day! 

Congratulations Brian & Jeanna :)

The Hilton Garden Inn Wedding, Staten Island, New Jersey Wedding Photography {Nicole & Anton}

 
Red Bank NJ Wedding

I am so excited to share Nicole and Anton's gorgeous summer wedding! The details in this wedding were all so beautiful from the greens, blues, and gray colors in the bridal party to the candlelit tables at the reception. Nicole wore a stunning Maggie Sottero gown which went perfectly with her beautiful hair piece and earrings! The ceremony was held at St. Anthony of Padua and was very sweet. From there we all headed over to Riverside Gardens in Red Bank, NJ for bridal party photos. This is one of my favorite locations for photos with the gorgeous river view and open green space. Afterwards we headed over to the The Hilton Garden Inn for a few more photos of the bride and groom in the lovely courtyard they have on the grounds. One of the reasons this couple loved this venue so much is the great wall of windows in the Nicotra's ballroom that looks out into the woods. So pretty! I loved the romantic feel of the reception with all of the candles! Once the reception started the party was really underway! The dance floor was packed with guests dancing and enjoying themselves all night! This wedding was so much fun and it was such a pleasure to capture Nicole and Anton's special day!

Congratulations Nicole & Anton :)

Enjoy the photos!

Olde Mill Inn Wedding, Basking Ridge NJ, New Jersey Wedding Photography {Amanda & Tom}

 
Olde Mill Inn Wedding Photography

I am so excited to share Amanda & Tom's romantic and elegant summer wedding at the Olde Mill Inn! This was the first wedding I had photographed here and I already can't wait to go back! I had so much fun with this awesome couple during their engagement session in Spring Lake last September, at both the park and the beach, and I couldn't wait for their wedding day! I am obsessed with the dress Amanda wore on her special day, she looked absolutely radiant! Amanda and Tom decided to do a first look with each other before the ceremony which I am always excited about! It was so sweet to capture them seeing each other for the first time. We were able to do many portraits right in the little court yard and it was the perfect location! For their wedding they chose to have the ceremony at Seaton Hall where they met! The Seton Hall University Chapel is so quaint and lovely. These two had a beautiful ceremony followed by a few photos right there on the campus with the gorgeous Princess Rolls Royce! It was such a beautiful day, sunny but not too hot for the middle of July :) Amanda did a fantastic job hand making many of the details for the wedding such as the wedding programs, favors and table numbers. The table numbers were named for the various dates Amanda and Tom had been on together over the years, such a cute idea! After the ceremony we came back for a few more portraits of the bride and groom at the Olde Mill Inn and then they were able to enjoy time at their cocktail hour (just another reason I love first looks!) The reception was so much fun with everyone dancing, laughing and having a fabulous time. There were so many special and sentamental elements to this wedding that made it all the more special for me and my team to capture. It was such a joy to photograph this beautiful wedding! Congratulations Amanda & Tom!

MCLOONE'S PIER HOUSE, PIER VILLAGE, NEW JERSEY WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY {Melissa & Sean}

 
McLoone's Pier House Wedding Photography

Melissa & Sean's wedding day was so incredibly JOYFUL! They did not stop smiling the entire day and neither could I as I photographed this sweet couple! I have been so excited about this wedding from the moment I met these two. I had the best time with them at Sandy Hook during their engagement session last summer! As you may be able to tell from their colors and decor they absolutely love the beach and I was so happy we were able to get so many portraits of them there (especially at sunset!) From beginning to end this wedding was incredibly beautiful and filled with love! I loved spending the morning with the girls as Melissa was beaming from ear to ear. They both had hand written love notes to each other that they wanted to try to read at the exact same time (which is exactly what they did!). Some of my favorite moments from the church were the combination of some jewish traditions within the catholic ceremony such as signing the Ketubah and breaking the glass. Melissa and Sean were married the weekend of the 4th of July so when we arrived for bridal party photos at the beach it was more than packed! But one of the many reasons I LOVE Mcloone's Pier House is that we were able to go right under the pier there and get so many amazing shots while avoiding the crowds! We finished up just in time for Melissa and Sean to enjoy their entire cocktail hour while we captured the beautiful details of the reception. My favorite part of the day was the unique first dance these two shared. They started off by singing the first half of their wedding song together (Lucky, by Jason Mraz) and did a beautifully choreographed dance to the 2nd half. The reception was so much fun, and they even did the hora at one point, which is always a blast! Everyone laughed and danced the night away with Melissa and Sean. I can't say enough about how sweet, easy going, and happy this couple is and how much of a pleasure it was to photograph their wedding day! 

Congratulations Melissa & Sean!

Enjoy the photos :)
