Beautiful Bear Brook Valley Wedding

Lydia and Mike’s incredible wedding day was a true testament to the resilience of love! Like many sweet couples, Lydia and Mike faced postponements and rescheduling for their special day. Wedding planning during a pandemic is no easy task, but after a lot of work and so much love, Lydia and Mike were able to finally say their vows at their gorgeous summer Bear Brook Valley wedding in July! Bear Brook Valley turned their picturesque grounds into the perfect outdoor wedding venue in NJ. The entire day was filled with celebration and joy and will always be such an important chapter in Lydia and Mike’s love story!

Getting Ready on a Gorgeous Wedding Day

The summer sun shone through soft clouds as Lydia and her bridesmaids got ready on her wedding day. The incredible silo suite at Bear Brook Valley was filled with laughter as the girls slipped on their pale pink bridesmaid dresses. It was such a joyous moment when Lydia got to put on the wedding dress that had been hanging in their apartment for months! She looked like a dream in her Martina Liana wedding gown! The flower girls held out her train and watched adoringly as Lydia spun around, showing off her bridal look. Every detail of Lydia and Mike’s day was so beautiful, from the cute custom Connect Four board to the romantic custom invitation suite by Hudson Paperie. As Lydia got ready with her girls, Mike joined his groomsmen for some swings on Bear Brook Valley’s miniature putting green before heading to their first look!

Lydia walked towards Mike with excitement in every step. As soon as Mike turned around, he broke into the biggest smile! Lydia looked so gorgeous as his bride that his eyes filled with tears! The sweet couple shared a kiss and a cute high-five. They were so excited to finally be getting married after rescheduling their wedding due to the pandemic!

Celebrating with Family and Friends

One of my favorite parts of the day was seeing Lydia and Mike’s family and friends finally get to come together after months of quarantine. Everyone was so overjoyed to be together and celebrating safely at this outdoor wedding venue in NJ. I loved capturing photos of Lydia and Mike with their bridal party and with their families!

Outdoor Bear Brook Valley Wedding Ceremony

Bear Brook Valley has the most beautiful outdoor ceremony location in New Jersey. A rustic wooden archway overlooks a lovely heart-shaped lake surrounded by lush green trees. Lydia and Mike’s family and friends gathered to finally see this wonderful couple become husband and wife!

The flower girls and ring bearer were adorable! I loved the moment right after the flower girls walked down the aisle and dumped the remaining flower petals on their heads!

Mike was in awe of his beautiful Lydia as she walked down the aisle with her father. Their vows were filled with emotional moments and so many happy tears as the couple finally got to say “I do”!

Tented Outdoor Wedding Venue in NJ

Lydia and Mike put so much thought into every detail of their day! Their thoughtfulness made for such an incredible celebration! The stunning greenery covered champagne tower paired perfectly with the custom cocktail napkins featuring their dog Lady. I loved the whimsical florals by From Peonies to Paint Chips! The guests were buzzing over the Jets-themed tailgate station at cocktail hour and the late night food station with a nod to their alma mater, Rutgers. Lydia and Mike personalized so many of the details and told their love story through every moment of the day!

I love how thoughtful Lydia and Mike were in ensuring their guests’ safety throughout their wedding day! They had plenty of masks and hand sanitizer readily available. They even displayed an amazing social distancing sign custom made by calligrapher Write Pretty for Me! While following the pandemic restrictions, Lydia and Mike still put together a gorgeous outdoor wedding!

Bear Brook Valley Outdoor Wedding Reception

Lydia and Mike entered their Bear Brook Valley reception to cheers from their family and friends! Mike pulled Lydia in close for their sweet first dance. The two spun around the outdoor dance floor, relishing every moment of newlywed bliss. Even with masks and the socially distanced dance floor, everyone had a blast!

The last dance of the night was filled with so much love and joy! Lydia and Mike saved the Hora for the end of the evening so as to make all of their guests feel comfortable, and it was really fun to see them surrounded by those closest to them at the end of the evening. Before the band left, they played their first dance song, which they recorded for Lydia and Mike and sent to them to dance to on their original wedding date.

Thank You

I was so thrilled to be a part of your beautiful day, Lydia and Mike! It was amazing to see the resilience and strength of your love in the face of postponing your wedding. I wish you so much joy as you continue your love story as newlyweds!

Joyful Ashford Estate Wedding

The sunny July skies were the perfect backdrop to Brianna and Phillip’s gorgeous Ashford Estate wedding! This sweet couple exchanged vows in a beautiful open air chapel and enjoyed their first minutes as a married couple exploring the picturesque gardens of the estate. The day was filled with tears of joy and so many memorable moments! I loved being a part of Brianna and Phillip’s wedding day and am so excited to share some of my favorite photos!

Ashford Estate wedding venue in NJ

Getting Ready Photos

Every detail of Brianna and Phillip’s wedding was so thoughtfully curated. The cream and blush flowers peeked out of cascading greenery designed by Twisted Willow Flowers. Brianna’s bridesmaids wore the loveliest floral dresses by Show Me Your Mumu and all exploded in joy when Brianna walked out onto the balcony in her wedding gown. Meanwhile, Phillip and his groomsmen toasted to the special day, all dashing in cobalt blue suits. After a morning full of anticipation, the couple made their way to the lovely gardens for their first look!

Sweetest First Look

Brianna and Phillip shared the sweetest wedding first look on the gorgeous tree lined path at the Ashford Estate. Neither of them could stop smiling as they soaked in their wedding day joy! I loved that Brianna and Phillip got this special time to themselves before their wedding ceremony!

After their first look, Brianna and Phillip walked along the shady path together while I captured more wedding day portraits. They were soon joined by a very special furry friend: their cute dog Graham! Graham looked adorable with his greenery garland and was so good at posing for photos. Brianna and Phillip joined their bridal party for some fun group shots before making their way to their Ashford Estate wedding ceremony!

Emotional Ashford Estate Wedding Ceremony

The Ashford Estate’s open air chapel was the perfect spot for this beautiful ceremony. Gorgeous floral chandeliers and garlands covered the room. Creamy white petals were scattered along the aisle leading to a rustic brick fireplace adorned with glowing candles, lanterns, and more dreamy flowers.
One of my favorite moments had to be when Brianna was getting ready to walk down the aisle. Phillip couldn’t help but wipe away many tears at the anticipation of seeing his beautiful bride. As soon as the music started playing for Brianna’s walk with her father, Phillip and his sisters started crying tears of joy. Almost all of the guests were wiping tears as Brianna joined Phillip. It was such a beautifully emotional moment followed by a heartfelt ceremony.

As their guests headed to a fun summer indoor/outdoor cocktail hour, Brianna and Phillip snuck away for some more Ashford Estate wedding photos.

More incredible florals covered the tables and even adorned the wedding cake! Brianna and Phillip entered the room to excited cheers and shared the sweetest first dance. Phillip’s dance with his two sisters and Brianna’s dance with her father were both filled with emotion, happy tears, and a deep rooted joy. In the midst of the celebrations, Brianna and Phillip snuck away to enjoy the soft blues of the dusk sky. They shared a kiss before joining hands and returning to their celebration to dance the night away with their family and friends!

Private estate Hamptons wedding

Happily Ever After in The Hamptons

Bright sunshine, ocean breezes, and gorgeous gardens made for the perfect wedding day for Sarah and Jonathan! This sweet couple tied the knot at Sarah’s great grandfather’s iconic estate nestled in beautiful Southhampton. They were excited to be the first ones married on the property, affectionately named “Kinnsport” by Sarah’s great grandfather Harry Kinn. This joyous celebration was filled with family, friends, and so many sweet moments!

Getting Ready for Beautiful Hamptons Wedding

Sarah was all smiles on the morning of her beautiful Hamptons estate wedding! I loved seeing Sarah and her bridesmaids share laughter and excitement as they got ready together. The bridesmaids looked beautiful in blue: each bridesmaid picked a navy gown that she loved to show off her personality! Sarah’s experience in catering and floral design helped her plan every beautiful detail of the day! Sarah worked very closely on the floral designs with Showplace Floral & Event Design. Each bloom brought her incredible vision to life!

After slipping into her stunning Michelle Roth wedding dress, Sarah shared the sweetest first look with her father. Down the road, Jonathan joined his groomsmen for a toast before making his way to the beach to see his beautiful bride for the first time!

First Look on the Beach

Sarah and Jonathan had a beautiful first look at Coopers Beach. I loved having the chance to capture such an intimate moment. The two couldn’t stop smiling and Jonathan was in absolute awe of how beautiful Sarah was. They shared kisses and laughs as they basked in the Southhampton sun on this gorgeous September wedding day.

Hamptons Wedding Portraits on the Beach

After sharing the sweetest first look, Sarah and Jonathan joined hands and soaked in their wedding day excitement together. They posed for the most gorgeous Hamptons beach wedding photos! It was such a joy to capture these special moments that Sarah and Jonathan will look back on for years to come! Sarah and Jonathan also captured the most adorable wedding photos with their dog, Charlie! Charlie served as their “ring bear” and he was the cuddliest little pup! They were soon joined by their bridal party and families for group photos and everyone was buzzing with the excitement of the day. Finally, Sarah and Jonathan shared a few more moments alone on the beach before making their way to their wedding ceremony!

Private Estate Wedding Ceremony

The path leading to Sarah and Jonathan’s Hamptons wedding ceremony was filled with photos of the couple and their families. It was so special to see these legacies of love that led to Sarah and Jonathan joining their families together. Garden-inspired florals covered the arch overlooking the water as guests gathered. As Sarah made her way down the aisle with her father, Jonathan placed his hand on his heart in complete adoration of his beautiful bride. The ceremony was filled with so much love and the sweetest vows. As Sarah and Jonathan shared their first kiss as husband and wife, their friends and family broke out into joyous celebration!

Gorgeous Hamptons Wedding Reception

Every detail of Sarah and Jonathan’s private Hamptons estate wedding was so gorgeous! From the stunning florals to the thoughtful touches, their friends and family truly felt welcome at this iconic Southhampton estate. This beautiful home has been in Sarah’s family for four generations and this was the first wedding on the property! As Sarah shared, “We know my grandparents and great-grandparents would have been SO happy that a family wedding was taking place at Kinnsport. They loved a good party!”

 

Sunset Wedding Photos

Before joining their friends and family at their romantic reception, Sarah and Jonathan took some time alone to capture the prettiest sunset wedding photos. It was so special for the two to have time together to soak in their newlywed bliss! Neither Sarah nor Jonathan could stop smiling, they were so excited to finally be husband and wife!

Outdoor Wedding Reception at Private Hamptons Estate

Sarah and Jonathan danced the night away in an open air tent while the sun set behind them. Their family and friends joined in the celebrations and everyone had such a great time! The two snuck away for a couple backlit wedding portraits surrounded by twinkling lights and dark twilight skies. When they rejoined their guests, everyone shared in the a fun tradition from Jonathan’s hometown! The Pittsburgh cookie table is a cherished experience. Family and friends prepare homemade cookies to be served at the wedding. Each cookie is truly made with love and this was the perfect end to such an amazing day!  Thank you again Sarah and Jonathan for including me in your beautiful wedding celebration.  It was such a joy to be a part of it!

Yale Club wedding with bride and groom in Central Park wedding photo at winter wedding in NYC captured by best luxury NYC wedding photographer Amy Rizzuto Photography

Winter Yale Club Wedding

Alejandra and Michael were married this year on Leap Day! Their winter Yale Club wedding was an amazing celebration of their love for one another and their families and friends. Every moment was filled with excitement, from Alejandra’s walk down the aisle at the church, to the mariachi band that made an appearance at the end of the evening. Alejandra and Michael made so many happy memories on their special day, and I am thrilled to share some of my favorites!

Getting Ready at The Roosevelt Hotel

Alejandra and her bridesmaids spent the morning together at The Roosevelt Hotel – one of my favorite NYC getting ready locations for bridal parties! Laughter and joy filled the suite as the girls gathered to toast Alejandra on her wedding day! Meanwhile, Michael spent the beginning of their wedding day with his groomsmen, eagerly anticipating the moment he would finally see his beautiful bride!

All the details of Alejandra and Michael’s wedding day were so beautiful. I loved the sweet gifts Alejandra gave her bridesmaids: pretty pajama sets, floral monogrammed mugs, and sentimental bracelets. After a fun morning, Alejandra slipped on her stunning winter wedding dress by Wedding Atelier and her Jimmy Choo wedding shoes and made her way to the church.

Beautiful NYC Church Wedding Ceremony

The Church of the Blessed Sacrament is one of the most beautiful churches in New York City, and such a special place for Alejandra and Michael to get married. Michael couldn’t stop smiling as he waited at the end of the aisle! Behind the doors, Alejandra excitedly joined hands with her mom before entering the church. Michael’s eyes were filled with so much love for Alejandra as she walked down the aisle. I love that Alejandra and Michael incorporated two beautiful hispanic traditions into their wedding mass! The Exchange of the Arras Coins signified the pledge between Alejandra and Michael through the exchange of thirteen gold coins. The Placement of the Lazzo symbolized eternity and their everlasting union. Both moments were so special! After being pronounced husband and wife, this sweet couple shared the most joyful kiss!

Sweet Winter Wedding Photos in Central Park

After their wedding ceremony, Alejandra and Michael made their way to Central Park. We only spent about 10 minutes capturing winter wedding photos in this iconic NYC spot, but it was so sweet for them to have a little time alone to soak in being married! I loved capturing their joy and laughter during this romantic rendezvous and seeing Alejandra and Michael share this sweet excited time as newlywed! bride and groom in central park before yale club wedding bride and groom posing for wedding photo by bow bridge bride and groom in central park in winter bride and groom kiss in central park after nyc winter wedding joyful bride and groom in central park joyful central park wedding photo black and white bride and groom in central park during winter wedding in nyc bride and groom in central park during winter wedding in nyc bride and groom in central park during winter wedding in nyc bride and groom in central park during winter wedding in nyc black and white nyc wedding photo bride and groom in central park during winter wedding in nyc bride and groom in central park during winter wedding in nyc bride and groom in central park during winter wedding in nyc bride and groom in central park during winter wedding in nyc bride and groom in central park during winter wedding in nyc

Yale Club Wedding Celebration

Alejandra and Michael entered their Yale Club wedding reception to cheers and applause from their excited guests. The two had an absolute blast on the dance floor during their first dance and soon all their family and friends were joining them to dance the night away! All of the food was unreal, but my favorite was the Mexican candy bar! Alejandra and her mother put together an incredible display of the couple’s favorite candies and it was such a fun touch! During dinner, an amazing Mariachi band serenaded Alejandra, Michael, and their guests and set the mood for a night full of celebration!
