ryland inn coach house winter wedding | morgan & justin

morgan and justin’s ryland inn coach house winter wedding was a snowfilled day full of smiles and an awesome party! i’ve been photographing at landmark venue’s ryland inn since it first opened several years ago and was excited that they added another space to host weddings. landmark hospitality always does a phenomenal job with their weddings and i knew their new coach house ballroom would not disappoint. i’ve been loving the increasing popularity of winter weddings that i’ve seen over the last couple of years, but it’s a rare day when we get to have snow all day long. i had the pleasure of photographing a ryland inn wedding last winter with shannon and brandon… what a difference a year and some snow makes! i love that morgan and justin were all about going out in the snow for their photos. it was definitely cold and messy, and with a late church start we ended up racing against the light a bit, but these two were total troopers about it!

i’m not one to take my couples away from their party for nightshots since my couples tend to be the kind of people that don’t want to miss a minute of their party. nightshots have to be a bit more posed because of the lighting conditions and my couples really enjoy a less posed approach. with the constant snowfall, i couldn’t resist asking morgan and justin to head outside for a few minutes so we could grab a few more photos of the two of them. glad they were up for it because the snow was so worth it. oddly enough, it actually felt a lot warmer than when we were taking pics earlier in the day which was great because we were able to highlight morgan’s chiarade wedding gown… bride and groom kiss during snowy nightshot at their Ryland inn coach house winter wedding photographed by New Jersey wedding photographer michelle arlotta bride in chiarade wedding dress walks with groom during snowy nightshot at their Ryland inn coach house winter wedding in New Jersey bride in chiarade wedding dress walks with groom during snowy nightshot at their Ryland inn coach house winter wedding photographed by New Jersey wedding photographer michelle arlotta

in my thirteen years of photographing weddings, i do not remember a wedding day where it snowed from when i started packing up my gear until i got home and started unpacking my gear.  loved all the aspects of morgan and justin’s ryland inn coach house winter wedding, especially the awesome party! always so great to work with landmark venues and their staff. thanks to my longtime assistant, kelsey davis, for bearing the cold with me!
