Scenic Views and Comfort Foods The art of wedding planning, because that’s really what it is, shouldn’t be vague. Every wedding is different, because the two people you’re celebrating are unique! Their wedding details and every other component should be unique as well, and Ali and Josh definitely added their personal taste (pun intended) to […]

A Fall Wedding in the Catskills Driving up through the Catskills, I immediately felt sentiment for the years of road trips my husband and I have taken over the years, heading north. From day trips to West Point to weeklong trips to the Adirondacks, I have such fond memories of the New York State Thruway. […]

A Wedding in Full Color It had been almost a year since I met Brandy and Mike during their Princeton engagement session. Their wedding was right around the corner, so we decided to meet for coffee just a few weeks before the big day. Over a year and a half ago, I gave Brandy a […]

Ali & Brad’s Greek Wedding I’ve been looking forward to this wedding all year! Ali and Brad’s wedding was my first Greek Orthodox wedding, so we decided from the start, that I would attend their rehearsal the night before so I could watch them go through the motions and learn about this beautiful ceremony! There […]

Festive Fall wedding inspiration

There are just some brides that you get to know really well, so that by the time the wedding day comes around, you’re already friends. That’s how I would describe my relationship with Cara. Leading up to the wedding day, there were several emails, texts, direct messages, etc. and I absolutely loved it! I first […]

Love, Light & Laughter filled Wedding Day I met Alison and Jonathan for the first time only a few short weeks ago! I knew I loved them from the moment I recommended a sunrise engagement session for the amazing light, and they said yes without any hesitation! Not only did they arrive cheerfully on that […]

Summer wedding at The Park Savoy with mauve color details and organic floral arrangements

The Many Faces of Joy I can remember each and every one of my clients with a small sound bite to describe them. Kelly and Matt’s sound bite goes a little something like this: Kelly is incredibly kind, smiles all the time and crinkles her nose with every smile. Matt is full of personality and […]

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. We started out by taking photos of just the two of them at Hartshorne Woods near the Atlantic Highlands. […]

Summer natirar wedding

A Lauren Kearns Bride I know this is a very odd header for a sneak peek wedding blog, but follow me here! I want to take you back to Kathleen and David’s proposal story! One warm January Friday, Kathleen and David went out for dinner to a local Mexican restaurant. With unusually warm weather, Kathleen […]

Love & Marriage Love and marriage…go together like a horse and carriage. Yes, I’ve been singing this classic Frank Sinatra song over and over, ever since writing this title. However annoying that has been, I feel like it is definitely an appropriate title for Carolyn and Taylor’s wedding blog post. Why? Carolyn and Taylor’s reverend […]
