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

Jen + Mike: Born to Run Farm Wedding, Glen Gardner New Jersey

It’s almost hard for me to put into words how I feel about this couple and shooting their day. I knew from the moment we met, they were my perfect clients.  We chatted for what felt like hours about their day while I learned about Jen and Mike as a couple and how having their wedding at Born to Run Farm in Glen Gardner NJ was a dream come true for them.  Jen grew up with a deep love for horses and they were excited to have their day at such incredible venue.

Weeks before the wedding we met on the property to talk through their vision and I instantly fell in love with the property.   Did I mention it’s 10 minutes from my home and I can see it perched high in the mountains?   Jen and Mike wanted a laid back BBQ feel for their day and they invited those closest to them to celebrate.  Surrounded by their family and friends, (and their two beautiful pups!) they had the most incredible indian summer day.   Congratulations again Jen and Mike.. you guys will remain on my mind for many years to come!!! JCP_0014 copyJCP_2084 copyJCP_0048 copy_KEV7014 copyJCP_0033 copyJCP_0380 copyJCP_0160 copyJCP_0071 copyJCP_0104 copyJCP_0235 copyJCP_0206 copyJCP_0525 copyJCP_0528 copyJCP_0330 copyJCP_0543 copyJCP_0415 copy
