Waterloo Village Wedding | NJ Photographer | Candace + David

Waterloo Village was one of those beautiful places where we would go on class field trips back in grade school. I have such fun memories of running around the property with my friends and learning all about New Jersey’s history. I had no idea that they had created a venue specifically for weddings until recently! I was so excited when my sweet friend Jen of Jennifer Larsen Photography told me that her couple, Candace + David, would be tying the knot on the property! I couldn’t wait to second shoot this beautiful wedding with her.

Candace + David’s wedding day was on Labor Day Weekend. I refreshed the weather app on my phone (as I always do every day for a week leading up to a wedding, haha!) and kept my fingers crossed that the weather would hold out for us. We were in luck, and it didn’t start raining until later in the day…. and it made for some AMAZING night time portraits.

Candace + David chose to have a first look, and because of that we had almost AN HOUR of couple portrait time before the ceremony. A whole hour! We walked all around the property and photographed them in front of the quaint buildings, wooden bridges, and endless amounts of beautiful foliage. Their portraits are some of my favorites from this summer!

Congratulations, Candace + David! Be sure to check out Jen’s blog post HERE to see the full day, and enjoy some of my favorites below!

Double Nickel Brewing Co.| NJ Wedding Photographer | Colleen + Andrew

On their first date, Colleen and Andrew learned that their grandparents owned condos at the same complex in Ocean City, NJ. What are the odds?! They like to imagine that they spent many summers together as children splashing around in the ocean! As fate would have it, they met again online and had their official first date at the Garden State Ale House in 2015.

Andrew proposed to Colleen last summer at the Mohonk Mountain house in New York. He had planned a weekend together filled with adventurous activities like hiking and camping! Colleen had no idea that Andrew was going to propose to her that weekend. After a long, hot and humid hike to the top of Mohonk Mountain, Andrew got down on one knee and proposed to Colleen. And of course she said YES!

Everything about their wedding day was absolutely perfect from the beautiful florals to the Mister Softee truck that came to visit at end of the evening (by the way, I’m now a firm believer that EVERY couple needs one of those at their wedding!). After tying the knot at Holy Savior Church, we went over to a park near Colleen’s house for bride and groom portraits. The photo opportunities were seriously endless! Some of my favorite portraits are in front of the Philly skyline (just wait until you see those!) and the sunset portraits that we took at the Brewery. What I loved most about Colleen and Andrew’s wedding day was how they truly made it a reflection of themselves and what they love the most!

Congratulations, Colleen and Andrew! I had such a blast spending the day with you both. I hope you had a fabulous honeymoon in Montana!

Enjoy some of my favorite images from their wedding day!

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.

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!

Ballyowen Golf Club | NJ Wedding Photographer | Alyson + Andrew

Alyson + Andrew’s rustic wedding at The Ballyowen Golf Club was such an amazing celebration. They tied the knot overlooking the rolling hills of Northern NJ while surrounded by so many loving family members and friends. We couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful day!

The first time Alyson and Andrew met was in the Boston Seaport District through a mutual friend three years ago, and they’ve been inseparable ever since! They enjoy hiking together, visiting breweries, going on day trips to new cities, listening to country music, watching HGTV (a couple after my own heart!), and spending time with their sweet puppy, Lacey.

I loved the rustic country feel of their wedding. They incorporated mason jars, wood, lace, and burlap into their wedding decor which gave the venue such a cozy feel. Plus, their wedding colors were blush and navy…. and it doesn’t get much better than that 🙂

Congratulations, Alyson and Andrew! It was such a joy to be a part of your wedding day. Have a wonderful time in Turks and Caicos!
