Kristin and Tom had the most beautiful wedding day. Having worked with this awesome couple over the last couple months, I knew they would leave no detail untouched. Kristin designed every element of their day, including their logo, which was incorporated into all of the beautiful details. There was a botanical undertone to all of their details, which made sense for this couple as their first date was at the Frelinghuysen Arboretum,….in addition Tom proposed there too! The Madison Hotel served as the most perfect location which lush greenery and epic ball room for this special couple!
Special Thanks for Hasan for 2nd shooting this day with me!
Have you ever met a couple that when they walk in the room, all heads turn to look that them? If you have, it was probably Cortney and Jason. They both have personalities that will light up a room within minutes. Jason’s smile is like none other, constantly grinning from ear to ear and Cortney’s electric eyes could like take your breath away. Their entire day was filled with incredible emotion. Jason was over taken with emotion when he knew Cortney was coming down the aisle. See awesome tears below. It’s probably my favorite processional ever. After the ceremony, we took some portraits during golden hour on the grounds of the country club. And the night ended with some pretty sick dancing in the ballroom at the Basking Ridge Country Club. Thank you again J+C for allowing me to document your amazing day!
Ceremony + Reception: Basking Ridge Country Club
Special thanks to Hasan Aj of Vibrant Captures for shooting this wedding with me!
It feels so good to go back to your roots sometimes and to visit the streets you grew up on as a child. When Elizabeth asked me to shoot her wedding, I immediately felt completely honored. You see, I grew up with Elizabeth’s older brother and he was one of the first friends I made in grade school in Somerville, NJ. My memory of Elizabeth was of a beautiful brown eyed little girl, kind and sweet to all. So when she asked me to capture her wedding to Erich, I almost cried. To see her marry her love on her wedding day was one I won’t forget. Erich is her perfect match..witty and fun and full of life. The joining of these families was one filled with incredible emotion and laughter. I’m so overjoyed to have been a part of this day and Elizabeth and Erich I wish you a life time of happiness and love!
Ceremony: St. Joseph’s – Raritan NJ
Reception: The Primavera Regency
Elizabeth was hungry and asked that someone grab her a mini-bagel. But these sisters decided to share it. 🙂
Big brother laughs.. ALL day!
We stopped at the beautiful Nevius Street Bridge in Raritan NJ for some beautiful portraits.
Elizabeth’s mom asked that we go back to her home for a toast with some of the guests before heading to the reception. E+E got to say hello to their beautiful dogs for a quick moment.
I love this moment, right before Mrs. Knapp gave a toast, Elizabeth and her mom shared a personal moment. She was telling her how much she loves her. Such joy!
We were blessed with the most beautiful spring day for Jason and Cortney’s engagement session. The couple decided to visit Duke Farm in Hillsborough NJ for their engagement session and I’m so glad they did! We shot underneath the beautiful lush magnolia trees, some of which are over 100 years old. We visited the greenhouse filled with orchids and of course the giant stone walkways. Shooting their wedding next week at the Basking Ridge County Club will surely be a treat. As you can see from these images their connection is magical and I know their wedding day is going be spectacular!
