These two dreamt of an outdoor wedding this year and they made it happen! They may have had to wait a little longer for it, but in the end they tied the knot and celebrated with their 160+ guests!! An outdoor ceremony and tented reception at @wotwfrogbridge for the win. This was our first “big wedding” since the start of the pandemic and our associate photographers Jocelyn and Marianne were honored to capture it on a perfect September day.

A little dancing on the beach after they said “I do”! 🥰 Ally and Brian were originally supposed to have their wedding at Brant Beach Yacht Club earlier this month, but their plans were affected by the pandemic. They ended up postponing their big wedding until next year, but couldn’t wait until then to tie the knot. These two are high school sweethearts, so they’d been waiting to say “I do” for a long time. Why wait any longer? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ On their original wedding date, Ally and Brian came down from their home in NY to Ally’s parents’ beach house on LBI and tied the knot at Bayview Park. It was the perfect minimony and preface to their big wedding celebration in 2021. Congrats, Ally and Brian! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Recap of their wedding on my blog!
Meryem and Matt are one of my NY couples! They were engaged last summer on The Promenade in Brooklyn, after eating at the restaurant where they had their first date. When they told me what they did for a living, I wasn’t surprised they connected shortly after meeting online. Matt is a teacher and Meryem is a nurse, so two very caring and compassionate people and they make such a sweet couple! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We met up after these two celebrated one year of being engaged on what was one of the nicest days of the summer, and at one of the prettiest locations in NJ.

One of my favorite parts of any wedding day is discovering the details you have chosen to make your wedding unique. And one of my favorite details is your bouquet! Your bouquet will be in a lot of your photos so make sure you work closely with your florist to create something you love. Like this beauty by @rosaspinafloral.

A stolen kiss under the arbor that Rebecca's father built for their wedding day! Rebecca and Ryan lived in the same town but ended up meeting by chance online! They are the sweetest couple and planned a beautiful micro wedding at Indian Trail Club. They’re both in education, so they wanted to get married before the school year got too busy and Labor Day weekend ended up being the perfect choice for these two. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Rebecca and Ryan tied the knot in front of an intimate group of their friends and family with the beautiful backdrop of the lake and natural landscape at ITC. It was beautiful! Swipe for a peek at their day and head to my blog for a full recap! Rings: @katiediamondjewelry Flowers: @beersflowers Dress & Veil: @BHDLN
Vendor spotlight on @threegirlsgarden! One of my past brides teamed up with her mother and sister to cultivate wild garden magic and I had the pleasure of documenting their creations at one of my recent weddings! It's so pretty, I had to give them a shout-out! Swipe to see their beautiful work and check them out at @threegirlsgarden. 😍
Fun fact: Tammy and Harry found me thanks to one of my past brides, who now runs @threegirlsgarden with her mother and sister - wait until you see the florals! It was so fun running into them as they were finishing setting up the florals and I was arriving to the ceremony! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I have to say that the silver lining during this pandemic season has been seeing so many couples decide to forego with the traditional and do things in their own way. Tammy and Harry did just that. Being very family-oriented, they knew they wanted to have a small and intimate wedding to make sure they could include Harry’s grandparents. A backyard at Harry’s sister’s home was the perfect choice! They incorporated beautiful wildflowers, calligraphy, and vintage rentals in their decor and a farm to table dinner for their guests. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I love that they incorporated their dogs – they pretty much stole the show during the portrait session - aren't they the cutest?

Escaping this rainy day thanks to this summer engagement session! Alexandra and Andrew met through a mutual friend, now one of Alex’s bridesmaids. Alex was visiting her in Philadelphia over the summer and they had stopped by Andrew’s apartment for dinner before going out that night. They hit it off and soon ended up on a first date at the aquarium. 🐧 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Last year, Alex and Andrew were engaged on a secluded beach in New Zealand after what was pretty much the most romantic proposal ever and I'm pretty sure Alex still can't believe it happened!

Faith and Adam were married on what was supposed to be a rainy afternoon and I was so worried that we wouldn’t be able to do any of their portrait session outdoors! Luckily, these two ended up having the most gorgeous day for their wedding. The sun even came out during their portrait session and we were all so thankful! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This wedding day was so charming. It took place in the quaint town of Burlington in the cutest Bed and Breakfast. It was the perfect venue for Faith and Adam since they planned a small wedding with just their closest friends and family. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ My favorite part of the day was the first look - swipe to see all.the.tears. I also loved that Faith had the best taste in florals - wait until you see the ceremony arbor that she dreamt up with her florist!
