We are absolutely loving every detail of this lavender wedding at St. James Church in beautiful Basking Ridge, New Jersey. From the gorgeous brick church venue to the classic reception, we are swooning over all of these big day details. These wedding invites speak to an elegant sophistication and you can shop them here. Even the bouquets and floral centerpieces feature this gorgeous lavender hue that really ties together these nuptials. If you’re in the mood for some classic wedding inspiration then Meghan and Connor’s big day has your name all over it.
From the Photographer…
This past summer my husband Jay and I had the privilege of photographing Meghan and Connor’s wedding at St. James Church in Basking Ridge and later celebrated with their family and friends at the Basking Ridge Country Club. When I arrived at the salon where Meghan and her bridesmaids were getting pampered that morning, I immediately noticed Meghan’s radiant smile. What a happy bride! She smiled from ear to ear all day long, and I don’t blame her one bit. Their wedding day was flawless and we were so happy to be a part of it! Since they live in Maine, it was important to Meghan and Connor to be able to spend quality time with family and friends. Their timeline worked out perfectly for this because they gave themselves a relaxed morning and plenty of time for photos between the ceremony and reception so that they could attend their full cocktail hour with their guests. By the time the reception started, they were ready to party and so were their guests.
This summer wedding is the perfect combination of classic elegance and southern charm. We are swooning over the light, creamy and peachy wedding color palette Alex and Nick chose for their big day. We are absolutely loving everything about these intimate ‘I,do’s’ captured by J&D Photography.
From the Photographer…
Alex and Nick had a stunning summer wedding at The Mill at Fine Creek. Alex blew everyone away when she walked down the aisle in her form-fitting all lace wedding gown. She rocked that dress! The blush pink bridesmaid dresses and florals enhanced the romantic feel Alex was hoping for.
There were some sentimental touches to their wedding day ranging from hand-written vows to an exchange of love notes before the ceremony to a table honoring loved ones who are no longer with us. Alex + Nick are just the cutest couple! Nick’s face lights up whenever Alex is close by. They share a love of exercise and health. They are both such caring people, and the outpouring of love they received on their wedding day only made it that much more evident what a strong couple Alex + Nick are.
Today we are smitten to share this New Years Eve wedding inspiration. Saying ‘I, do’ surely makes for a beautiful way to ring in the new year. This regal wedding brings out all the glitz & glam that we adore. Think cream and gold wedding colors, a three tiered cake that makes a grand statement and fun New Years Eve props. The iconic Brown Hotel blends old world elegance and a chic modern feel and provides a one-of-a-kind back drop for Jenny and Darren’s big day.
Story From the Groom…
Our story begins in the place where all of the most magical, fairy tale love stories begin…under a bridge next to a giant troll. I first met Jenny, very briefly, at the Troll Pub under the bridge after a game one night in Louisville, Kentucky. I left that chance meeting thinking that I had met someone intriguing and strikingly beautiful. Jenny, as I would later learn, has a hard time remembering names, left thinking that she had met a guy in glasses named Derek. Unknown to either of us at the time, we had many common friends, and thus we found ourselves time and again in the same social settings. For more than a year, we were little more than acquaintances, but in hindsight, the signs of a great chemistry were plenty and obvious. We began to recognize the sparks in December 2012, and went on our first date on the 27th. The conversations flowed easily, the connection grew strong, and after taking a year to go on our first date, dates #2 – #20 happened in the span of a month. We fell hard and fast, and it didn’t take long for us both to realize that a long term future wasn’t just possible, it was inevitable.
Shades of blush, ivory and gold reign supreme over the day, complementing every detail, right down to the most important: an utterly romantic dress—the stuff dreams are made of. These colors are great for any time of the year, but we are swooning over this theme for spring! Great for your wedding, or a lavish bridal shower.
The perfect invitation will not only fit your wedding theme, but also your personality. We love this Bubbly Affair design, featuring luxe, foil-stamped artistry for an added POP! to your big day. It’s a lively (and lovely) choice to get the party started. And it lends itself perfectly to a champagne tower for your reception, especially with a glam-pour over classic glassware.
For those with 14-carat taste, a gorgeous cake with gold-leaf accenting is truly a feast for the eyes…one that will make a big (and delicious) impression on every guest. Sweet floral centerpieces and settings of regal gold cutlery complete the look. Cheers to ever-after!
Today, we are so thrilled to be sharing this epic Canadian wedding with you all. Jenny and Josh were married at the top of Whistler, in Roundhouse Lodge.This mountain wedding will make you swoon!
They got ready at The Fairmont Chateau Whistler, and had their first look out in the gardens at the base of Whistler Mountain. They went to Rainbow Lake for their portrait session, because it’s one of the best locations to get a full view of the mountain landscape. Jenny had a long, pink veil which added a special touch to her attire! Their ceremony was outdoors, on the patio of Roundhouse Lodge, and they had a live performer sing music while they walked down the aisle together.
Everyone headed down the gondola to their reception at the Squamish Lil’wat Cultural Centre, in Whistler. Their reception was in a round room in the cultural centre. Josh is an RCMP so he dressed in uniform for their first dance, where they also had a live band, Soul Stream, singing up a storm and keeping the dance floor full all night.This sweet couple planned a fabulous, fun party!
Today, we are absolutely thrilled to be sharing with you these chic NYC rooftop engagement photos. Ah, these engagement shots are formal, refreshing and we can practically hear the bustle of the busy city in the background. This session features rooftop dancing, sweet kisses and a pure radiant love captured by the talented Jessica Hendrix Photography. Can it get any more romantic? We sure don’t think so…
Tatyana and Fred got glammed up and headed up to the Top of the Rock, a vantage point in the city that offers unobstructed views, for their session. The results are just breathtaking.
From the Photographer…
Tatyana and Fred live in NYC and decided that the Top of the Rock was the perfect place for their engagement session. The couple bared the cold, windy January weather with me. Totally worth it! Photographing these two was like watching this enchanting love story unfold. Floating away on a cloud!
