Kim + John // NJ Backyard Wedding

Westfield New Jersey Backyard wedding

Paul and I hadn't met Kim and John before we showed up to photograph their intimate backyard wedding in Westfield, but as soon as we arrived and met both of them we instantly felt comfortable and pretty much like we were a part of the family. 

This gathering of family and friends at their home was such a special afternoon. The weather was perfect and there was hardly a cloud in the sky but the temperature was a perfect for an "almost" Fall day. As their family and friends started arriving for the ceremony, Paul and I instantly got a feel for the love and closeness that they all share with this special couple. 

Their day was absolutely perfect for them. A ceremony in one half of their beautiful yard and then a tent with tables for all of their guests to enjoy a delicious catered meal with them after the ceremony was over. All of the grandkids were there playing in the Radio Flyer and enjoying the most awesome kids table I have pretty much ever seen. Legos, bubbles, cameras and more! So much fun. A s'mores station was set up for later and there was some cornhole to play as well. Everyone mingled and just enjoyed themselves. It was laid back and relaxed and an absolute perfect afternoon for everyone involved. 

Even though we were only with them for a few hours on that Saturday it was such an honor to spend that time watching this family of five officially become "official". They have such a wonderful family and it was so fun to witness their unique celebration! Congrats to not only Kim and John but their family as well! Enjoy some of my favorites images from our time with them! 

Amanda + Andrew // Crystal Springs Golf Resort

Crystal Springs Wedding in Northern New Jersey

I've been pretty blessed to have been a part of some pretty amazing weddings this year and have seen my fair share of gorgeous wedding venues, but Crystal Springs Resort is seriously at the top of the list! This place was absolutely amazing! 

I 2nd shot for Laura Lee Photography for this romantic summer wedding of Amanda and Andrew in mid-August of this year. It was hot and humid but that didn't stop everyone from having an amazing time. The ceremony location was out of this world...I mean look at that view! And I climbed up the three story stairs right on the back of the resort to get the money shot of the ceremony up high. Probably one of my favorite shots to date!

It was such a pleasure to be there to serve Amanda and Andrew on their special day. Their reception was a party like no other and included almost the entire group gathering in a huge circle at 10pm when the DJ played Piano Man. It was wicked cool. 

Enjoy some of the shots I was able to capture throughout the day and to see a more complete story from the day, don't forget to head over to Laura's blog post!
