Valerie + Mike || The Place on the Lake Weddings

If you were there for their engagement session, you too would realize that Valerie + Mike are one of the goofiest couples we have ever had the chance to spend time with. Fast forward a couple of months to this past autumn, and we were given the opportunity to celebrate their marriage– a marriage full of good memories, and plenty of laughter.

We spent the day at The Place on the Lake, a gorgeous + cozy venue, hidden away in a little corner of East Brunswick. With pleasant weather amidst, we enjoyed every moment with Valerie and Mike. Their easy-going personalities definitely helped make our day all the more smoother. We began with a much anticipated ‘first look’ by bride + groom, followed by noontime portraits, and then an outdoor ceremony that included the newlyweds’ dog come down the aisle with a GoPro on her back. The cocktail hour included a floating lantern ceremony; something pretty special that we’ve never had the chance to witness in New Jersey. Mike and Val’s reception was packed full of dancing, laughs, crazy dance moves,  and a while lot of celebration.

Jen + Tim || Chimney Hill Estate Inn Weddings

In one of our last email conversations together leading up to their wedding day, we asked Jen what was most important on her wedding day. This was her response:

“In general, I am going for a very laid back ceremony and reception. I’m not very sentimental when it comes to items, but I am with the people in my life. A theme that keeps popping up in my head in the planning of the details is the phrase ‘Rejoice always’ from 1 Thessalonians 5:16. So that’s what Tim and I are trying to do, and what we want this ceremony and reception to be about.”

We’re so thankful for the opportunity to document their wedding celebration. Beyond the delicious brisket, curiously fuzzy alpacas and the beautiful May weather, it’s always refreshing to have a bride + groom whose heart is focused on something Greater than a perfect execution of wedding day details.

For the record, we absolutely loved working at the Chimney Hill Estate Inn in Lambertville, NJ. The staff were incredibly cordial, and everything from the food to the grounds to the alpacas made for an impeccable experience. A very special thanks is in order to staff + management at the Chimney Hill Estate Inn. Only with their cooperation and service did we truly enjoy our visit there.

Rose + Joe || Ballyowen Golf Club Weddings

Every once in a while, we only get to learn about a couples’ love story on the day of their wedding. In the case of Rose + Joe, our respect for their relationship grew tremendously when the wedding officiant revealed that their long-distance love story had stretched 7,393 miles… from Shanghai to New York.

Our bride + groom decided to tie the knot a year earlier, and thus, when they contacted us about their May event at the Ballyowen Golf Club, they highly emphasized their day being a “joyful celebration” rather than simply a wedding. We certainly kept that in mind as we documented this love-filled day.

If you asked us, we would definitely say that our favorite images were all the little moments in between the formalities. Such as the time that Joe unabashedly picked up his wife and spun her in the air during portraits; or the time that our newlyweds were joking around with one of the flower girls during some downtime at the reception. The table centerpieces were very clever as well: a cup of “joe” and a rose were fittingly centered at each of their reception tables.

Regardless of our personal picks, we hope you all will share in all of the joy of our couples’ celebratory day as you browse through these images.
