It’s been a wonderful wedding season so far. The only downside with us being so busy is our inability to find time and blog more. Thankfully, we’ve been spend some very late nights trying to catchup on our blog. This one is for you, Eileen and Danny!
When advising our couples in the months leading up to the actual wedding day, one of the things we emphasize most is setting aside “us time”. That is, making sure the couple has some time alone- time for portraits, snacking on food, or simply a nap on the couch in between transitions. This advice serves two benefits: one, it gives the couple a much needed breather from the exciting (and sometimes chaotic) jam-packed events that comprise the wedding day, and two, it allows them to share in the wedding excitement together, as it is happening. Often, we find that these moments alone are what our couples cherish the most, because they can unwind and take it all in, even if only for a minute. For those of you reading this who are currently planning their wedding, consider building in some “us time” in the midst of your schedules. You’ll be thankful you did.
A few weeks back, we joined Eileen and Danny for their incredible wedding celebration at the one-of-a-kind Grounds for Sculpture. The beautiful mix of summer and autumn weather helped cap off a great day already filled with festivities, love, dancing and cupcakes. Check out some of our favorite images from their day.

Below are some of our favorite images from their wedding day celebration earlier this summer. Andrew and Angelica chose to have their ceremony at the Princeton University Chapel, arguably the most visually stunning chapel in Central New Jersey. As a special treat for their guests, the Wafels & Dinges truck came all the way from NYC to feed the hungry wedding crowd. Serving fresh Belgian waffles alongside an assortment of different toppings to choose from, this mid-afternoon treat was a real crowd-pleaser among their guests.
Their wedding day continued with a reception at the Grounds for Sculpture in Hamilton, NJ, a breathtaking sculpture garden certainly worth visiting. Special thanks to Chez Alice of Princeton for catering their wedding- in our humble opinion, some of the best food we’ve had all summer.
Congratulations once again to Angelica and Andrew on their new marriage!
