Freesia bouquet with lots of green and white wedding details for a classic summer wedding in new jersey

A Timeless Summer Wedding at Natirar I think it’s fair to say that the tone of any wedding day is set in the wedding suite. I don’t usually know what that tone is for the groomsmen (sometimes thats a big surprise!), but I do know what it is for the bridal party. Romy got ready […]

Classic Wedding for a Classic Bride When I first met Alyssa and Rob for their engagement session last fall, it was really important to her that we take the pictures near her Grandmother’s house in Rumson.

Spring Wedding at the Mansion at Natirar

Joyful Spring Wedding at Natirar Emily and Scott’s wedding was absolutely stunning! However, that’s not what makes this wedding day so magical. What did make it so magical? Let’s start with the fact that they both got each other two cards (and thought they were so clever!). Emily’s crinkle-nose when she smiles. The moment Dad […]

The front door was adorned with festive wreaths, and upon entering the marble foyer, a warm glow from the candles¬†and sprawling […]

A Beautiful, Blustery Fall Wedding Saturday greeted us with gorgeous light and glowing trees. I texted Laura, my bride, to wish her a happy wedding day and her response was “mind the wind!” No kidding! It was a super windy day in the 200 acre wood that makes up Natirar Park! It’s no secret that […]

A Good Apple I feel like it was ages ago when I first spoke to Kristen and John about their Fall 2018 wedding at Natirar and their rehearsal dinner at Alstede’s in Chester. With John’s family coming from North Carolina, they wanted to welcome their guests with a casual country dinner that included apple picking […]

A Wedding Day Hunt It may not be customary for the bride and groom to see each other on the morning of their wedding, but I don’t know if a fox hunt is customary before the wedding either! However, seeing as Bart is the huntsman of the Essex Fox Hounds, how could they not?! I […]

Spring Showers and May Flowers I have a little “brag box” on my wedding questionnaire that I send to all of my couples a few weeks before their wedding. Sometimes I get a few bullet point remarks, other times I get a story. I received a story from Katherine, and I absolutely loved it. I […]
