shana & rashade | nassau inn | princeton, nj wedding

i had a chance to work with shana and rashade prior to their nassau inn┬áprinceton 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.
