the first time i ever photographed a rock island lake club fall wedding was three years ago for an amazing couple, courtney and shaun, shortly after rock island had first opened its doors. the lakeside setting, the fall foilage, the tasty food, the great service… i was sold. i know my rock island lake club couples are going to be chill people who want to have a good time in a great atmosphere. when i met christine and jason for the first time, i knew they were a perfect fit for my style and my personality. these two are full of smiles and laughter. we had a chance to work together last fall during their asbury park engagement session.

this year fall was a little bit late, but i love the mix of green with yellows… fall foliage at rock island lake club wedding ring bearer has tie adjusted during groom prep groom with purple tie adjusts cuffs

jen and kevin’s intimate treno pizza bar wedding was full of my favorite things…pizza, a rescue doggy, a garden ceremony and a chill couple. if you tell me you are getting married at a pizza restaurant my ears will immediately perk up as i wrote in my ‘about me’ section almost 10 years ago now that ‘i could eat pizza every day’. when you tell me you have a rescue doggy that you want to get some pictures with on your wedding day, my heart screams, ‘yay’ as i’m a huge animal lover and am a founding board member for the karma cat + zen dog rescue society. And if you are a chill couple having an intimate garden ceremony at historical gardens followed by delicious food and drinks in an open air atmosphere, then i’m pretty much sold. jen and kevin’s treno pizza bar wedding did not disappoint.

i met up with them for their first look at their house (which by the way was total #housegoals for me) where i also got to meet, Telly, their rescue pup. we took some pics in the park, headed to the haddonfield historical gardens for an intimate and moving ceremony and then over to the treno pizza bar for some open air dinner and dancing… treno pizza bar intimate wedding south jersey

jen and kevin love the treno pizza bar. the day that kevin proposed to jen he had also arranged for a bunch of people to surprise her for her birthday later that night at treno… and then he surprised all the guests by letting them know it was also an engagement party. jen and kevin love the treno pizza bar so much, they decided it’d be the best place for their initmate wedding.

i’m not one to fill my blog with details of the wedding day since i really like to focus on the emotion and story of the day, but the treno pizza bar is such a unique spot for a wedding, i wanted to share a few.

i had a chance to work with shana and rashade prior to their nassau inn princeton wedding in new jersey earlier this year during their engagement session. i knew these two were going to look sharp for their wedding day and that they did. this year, i’ve noticed my grooms really stepping it up with their attire. i’ve seen so many great variations on style and color. i really loved rashade’s monochromatic look with the pop of color from the single rose. it was a statement in of itself without outdoing his beautiful bride shana.

marie and brian’s berkshire hills country club wedding in pittsfield, massachusetts was sure to not disappoint. i originally met brian way back in 2013 at marissa and ben’s september wedding at the grandview in new york. the following september everyone met up again at the grandview for lea and alex’s wedding where i got to meet marie as well. i knew it was going to be a great day with this group for yet another september wedding.

although marie and brian orginally met back in 2011 while working college fairs, it would take them until 2013 to start dating. they had their first date, brian asked her to be his girlfriend and they got engaged all on the 23rd of the month so a wedding on the 23rd kept with their theme. although marie and brian live in california, they both grew up in massachusetts so a berkshire hills country club wedding made sense.

if you don’t get the reference to the yellow umbrella you need to check out the series ‘how i met your mother’… i thought it was funny when during the speeches it was brought up that brian wasn’t a very good gift-giver when earlier in the day his gift to marie had literally moved me to tears.  Berkshire Massachusetts bridal prep

when stephanie reached out to me about her and steve’s madison hotel wedding, it was pretty obvious she was my kind of bride and that’d we’d be a good fit for working together. we share the same birthday, i have a thing for flamingoes as well (there used to be one on my site and i realize i have too many saved items at places like etsy of flamingo things i want to order) and i get the impression that we are both overachievers who know how to work hard, but like to be a little silly and have fun. we got to meet up in nyc for their engagement session during the summer to get a little practice for the big day. it was a beautiful and comfortable fall day for their madison hotel wedding.
