Lebanon Country Club | Katie + Chris | A Tracey Krick Photography Wedding

Three words that I’d use to describe Chris and Katie’s wedding are classic, fun, and joy-filled! The couple tied the knot on a beautiful golf course at the Lebanon Country Club. It was so awesome to be able to witness the love that the couple has for each other and for their families.

My favorite part of most wedding days is usually the first look or bride and groom portraits (because that’s when I get to be the most creative!), but this time it was different. Of course, the bride and groom portraits were SO much fun to take, but I would have to say that my favorite part Chris and Katie’s wedding were the toasts. Katie’s father, sister, and friend gave the most thoughtful, heartwarming speeches. I might not remember exactly what they said, but I can tell you that they made me tear up!

Enjoy some of my favorites from Chris and Katie’s wedding day! Also be sure to check out the full day over on Tracey’s blog by clicking HERE! I always have such a wonderful time second shooting with her.

Inn at Leola Village | Ian + Anna | A Tracey Krick Photography Wedding

Ian + Anna’s classic wedding at The Inn at Leola Village was such a beautiful celebration! I knew that it was going to be a special day as soon as I pulled up to the property — rain or shine. Ian + Anna got ready at opposite ends of the property and shared the sweetest faux first look. They each stood on either side of a large barn door located inside the reception location and held hands (scroll down to see, SO cute!!!). The couple tied the knot in a room filled with pink blooms and oversized lanterns with glowing candles inside. They danced the night away with their guests and had one of the most beautiful sparkler exits I’ve ever seen!

Congratulations, Ian + Anna! I couldn’t be more excited for you both.

I had such a wonderful time second shooting this wedding with my sweet friend Tracey of Tracey Krick Photography! Enjoy some of my favorites from their wedding day below, and check out Tracey’s blog post by clicking HERE and her husband, Brandon’s, incredible wedding film by clicking HERE!

Hudson Farms | NJ Wedding Photographer | Sarah + Alex

As I drove up the property to Hudson Farms in Andover, NJ, I knew I was going to be attending one very special wedding day. The property was unlike anything I’ve experienced before! I was in awe of the historic mansion, beautiful forests, and the waterfall (!!!) that served as the backdrop to Sarah and Alex’s ceremony.

What I loved most were all of the personal details that Sarah and Alex included on their wedding day. Each groomsmen was given a custom bowtie that was handcrafted with pheasant feathers that fit the day perfectly. The reception was safari themed, complete with a life sized stuffed animal elephant that I may or may not have wanted to take home with me. The evening concluded with an incredible display of fireworks in front of the mansion. It doesn’t get any better than that!

A very special thank you to my sweet friend Jen of Jennifer Larsen Photography for inviting me to come and second shoot this amazing wedding with her! Check out her blog post of the full wedding day by clicking here.

Cross Garden Estates | NJ Photographer | Jen + Ryan

I’m so excited to be featuring my good friend Jen and her boyfriend Ryan on the blog today! Session swaps with photographer friends are always the best.¬†I met up with Jen and Ryan (can’t forget about Lily, too!) at The Cross Garden Estates in Bernardsville, NJ. Talk about a hidden gem! I had never been there before, and it turned out to be such a perfect session location. I couldn’t get over the huge grassy fields and beautiful gardens! I’ll definitely be visiting again soon.

I first met Jen through The Rising Tide Society about a year and a half ago. Not only is she an incredibly talented photographer (click here to see her work), but she is also one of the kindest souls you’ll ever meet. She’s always there to lend a hand and offer her suggestions and advice with full transparency. I couldn’t be more grateful for our friendship!

Getting to spend the evening with Jen and Ryan was so much fun. I loved watching them laugh together, run through the open fields, and chase their adorable puppy, Lily. They had me laughing through the entire session! Auburn hair, navy lace dress, the cutest couple around, and an overgrown field at sunset…. all of the things that make for photographer heaven ūüôā Check out some of my favorites below!

Rock Island Lake Club | NJ Wedding Photographer | Tom & Lauren

Tom & Lauren’s wedding at The Rock Island Lake Club in Sparta, NJ, was such a beautiful celebration. Between the rolling fog, beautiful florals, and incredible venue, their wedding day was like something out of a fairytale. And we couldn’t have asked to photograph a sweeter couple! I had such a great time second shooting with my sweet friend Jen of Jennifer Larsen Photography.

Every detail of Tom & Lauren’s wedding was so perfectly planned out. Their color scheme was navy and blush (my favorite!), and they carried out the theme through the bridesmaids dresses, florals, and Lauren’s beautiful Jimmy Choo flats! The rainy weather cleared up for us right before the first look, but Tom & Lauren had brought navy and white umbrellas for their bridal party just to be safe — and they helped to make for some beautiful bridal party pictures!

Congratulations, Tom & Lauren! Enjoy some of my favorites from their wedding day, and be sure to check out Jen’s blog post here!

Perona Farms | NJ Wedding Photographer | Lori + Kevin

A little rain couldn’t stop us from celebrating Lori & Kevin’s wedding at Perona Farms in Andover, NJ! I had such a wonderful time second shooting for my sweet friend Jen of Jennifer Larsen Photography,¬†and I couldn’t be more excited to be sharing this beautiful wedding with you today! Lori & Kevin tied the knot underneath a beautiful floral arbor surrounded by so many loving family members and friends.¬†Everything about their day from beginning to end was simply perfect…. I didn’t want to leave at the end of the night!

I loved getting to learn about Lori + Kevin’s love story. They are such a kind, relaxed, and fun loving couple! And can we talk about Perona Farms for a minute? Such an amazing venue! Some of my favorite photos from the day are the couple portraits that were taken in front of the barn and silos. So awesome!

Laurita Winery | NJ Engagement Session | Caitlin & Jonathan

If we’re being honest, I may have squealed a little bit when I signed onto Facebook a few months ago and saw that Caitlin was engaged! Caitlin and I met a few years ago back in college where we were both members of the Orientation Committee (YAY Mighty OC!). We were placed in the same squad and spent the week (before the incoming class arrived!) bonding with each other and our team members while making late night runs for Rita’s and participating in ALL of the ice breaker activities!

I can remember Caitlin telling me about Jonathan (also a Drew alum!) and their shared passion for marching band. It was clear that Jonathan was someone very special! When Caitlin and I met up to talk about her wedding, she shared with me that Jonathan proposed to her on Thanksgiving Day. Before dinner, each family member took a moment to share something they were thankful for. When it was Jonathan’s turn, he asked Caitlin to marry him. Does it get any sweeter than that?! I think not!

We had such a wonderful time exploring the incredible grounds of Laurita Winery together! Caitlin & Jonathan were so comfortable in front of the camera, and I loved watching how much fun they were having with each other. They had my assistant and I laughing our way through the vineyard!

Congratulations on your engagement, Caitlin & Jonathan! I can’t wait to celebrate with you both at Drew in January!
