Marie + Steve: Wedding at the Ryland Inn Coach House, Whitehouse Station, NJ

When I was a young girl, I would visit the Ryland Inn with my family.  It was such a special place to us; used for special occasions.   So when Marie and Steve reached out to me and asked me to be a part of their wedding day, I was honored.  They picked such a beautiful venue which allowed them to not only have an amazing party, but such an intimate warm environment for their guests. Marie and Steve had a beautiful fall sunny day and the most perfect sunset during their ceremony.  It was an honor to be a small part in their story and document their day through my lens.  Marie and Steve, I wish you all the joy in the world as you embark on this new chapter in your lives!

I also have to mention Liza from the Ryland Inn, who made sure every detail was meticulously covered! And SCE Event Group, who truly brought the party!JCP_5017 copyJCP_4818 copyJCP_4703 copyJCP_4759-Edit copyJCP_5087 copyJCP_4887 copyJCP_5102 copyJCP_4724 copy

Krista + AJ: Born to Run Farm, Glen Gardner New Jersey Farm Wedding Photographer

I have so many feelings about Krista and AJs wedding.  I fell in love with Born to Run Farm, located in Glen Gardner, NJ in 2017 when I shot my first wedding there.  Living only 7 minutes from this venue, I can see it from my house, nestled high up in the mountains. I had always wondered who owned this beautiful home I admired for so long? When I arrived at the farm, I could barely catch my breath. No picture I could ever take could convey its beauty.  But, a location if only beautiful doesn’t mean very much if it doesn’t have amazing people behind it.  This leads me to the Gerish family.

See Krista and AJ, (the bride and groom) decided on this location as it’s her grandfather’s farm.  I know stop right there right?!?! Many years ago, her grandfather bought this 126 acre property and raised horses and other live stock.  (Some of which are considered the babies of the family now *see cow pics.!)  When they reached out to speak with me about their wedding.. again, I almost lost my breath. Krista and her brother and cousins (who now run the farm) grew up on this property.  You could truly see in all of their faces the joy they felt for Krista meeting her soulmate!  Sigh, how wonderful, a family wedding on the family farm.  It doesn’t get any better.

Mother nature was playing some tricks on us this day, but because my incredible couple were so easy going we shot in the rain, in the cold and then back in the drizzle again. You really can’t tell from the images that it was overcast, as the emotions of the day fill the images with such love. I will be forever thankful Krista and AJ that you chose me for your day.  xo Janine
