I’m so excited to be kicking off Thanksgiving week with Andrea and Stephen’s DREAM of a wedding day at Park Chateau in East Brunswick, NJ! Andrea and Stephen had booked their wedding with me about three years ago. They were living in Vietnam at the time because Stephen was offered an incredible job opportunity there. I remember being very intrigued when we first spoke on the phone 🙂 After three rescheduled wedding dates, it was so great to finally be able to meet Andrea and Stephen in person for the first time!
I could feel the excitement in the bridal suite as soon as I arrived! Andrea was almost finished with her hair and makeup, and I couldn’t wait to start taking her bridal portraits. The bridal suite at Park Chateau feels like a room that could be found somewhere in Europe; with the floor to ceiling windows and beautiful furnishings, it truly is a photographers dream!
We had Andrea exit through the grand doors of the chapel for the first look with Stephen. Family members and friends watched from the balcony as they saw each other for the first time! Andrea and Stephen’s reactions were so sweet. Their wedding day was a long time in the making, and I loved watching them soak in this moment together!
After their ceremony, Andrea and Stephen had the chance to walk through their fully decorated ballroom before guests had a chance to enter. Their expressions were priceless when they saw all of their planning come together! During the reception, we were able to sneak out for some night time portraits. Park Chateau leaves their twinkle lights up ALL year round which makes for the most amazing night photos ever. Some of my favorite photos from Andrea and Steven’s wedding day are of their night photos!
Congratulations, Andrea & Stephen! It was such a joy to work with you both ❤️ Enjoy some of my favorites below.
If Andrea and Stephen receive 30 comments on this blog post, I’ll send them a complementary 8×10 print of their choice!
