Daniel tells us, “Joe and Claire chose Valleybrook Country Club as their venue of choice for their big day. Although it was New Year’s Eve and it was freezing cold outside, they braved the winds with us like champs. All the elements came out to play with sun and snow, and we have some beautiful photographs to show for it. Everyone was super fun and we had a blast with this wonderful couple!”

Asbury Park Engagement: Jenica + Josh

Jenica and Josh are funky, fun, and adventurous! So you’re going to love their Asbury Park engagement session captured by Sherry from Sherry Sutton Photography. Let’s let Jenica and Josh fill us in on all of the day’s special details.

Jenica and Josh said, “We really wanted something fun and unique for our engagement shoot so we chose Asbury Park, NJ for our location. It was perfect! We wanted to pay tribute to our engagement on the Love Lock Bridge in Paris; we brought some fun “Parisian” props including a pink Eiffel Tower, French soda bottles, and pink macaroons. On the same trip to Paris, we came across a beautiful swan at Marie Antoinette’s chateau in Versailles. Asbury Park has these amazing swan pedal boats so we HAD to get photos there. Sherry gave us a key ring as an engagement present so we incorporated that into the shots. One of our favorite finds was a custom pinwheel with our wedding date on it. We had it custom made by Leah R Hood. We are thrilled with the way the photos came out!” See for yourself…

Alba Vineyard Wedding: Nicole + Andrew

This Alba Vineyard wedding was spectacular! Nicole and Andrew’s wedding at the Alba Vineyard, with it’s breathtaking landscape and hillside ceremony site among the vines, made for a beautiful event. Their exclusive wedding was captured in every detail by Hendrick from Hendrick Moy Photography. Interested in finding out more about Nicole and Andrew’s wedding? See what they have to say after the jump…

Nicole and Andrew tell us, “Being a quirky and off the beaten path kind of couple, we knew our wedding would be just as creative, unique, and fun as we are. We chose Alba Vineyard because they have delicious wine, the grounds are amazing, and Andrew proposed at a vineyard on a trip to CA and we found it fitting. In the 9 months we had to plan the wedding, we changed the entire look and theme of the wedding probably 4 times (even completely changing the entire flower order). We included a ton of personalized details – Nikki painted the cake toppers, found a vintage stand and turned it into a purple cupcake tier, made a huge wine-cork board to pin the seating cards too, and painstakingly painted the word ‘Café’ on each of the coffee bag party favors (which by the way were supposed to say ‘Café Pilon’ but after painting the first word on the 140 bags, Andrew decided Nikki’s sanity was at stake). We also had the groom’s brother personally write and perform the ceremony which made it that much more special. We managed to incorporate Nikki’s love for books by using her favorites as part of the centerpieces and her talent for baking cupcakes by having them in lieu of a traditional wedding cake. Andrew’s tech side also made an appearance through the wedding party photo iPhone app.”

I don’t think the reality of the day really hit us until very early the morning of the wedding, as we quietly sat on the edge of the bed in our hotel drinking our morning coffee, I will never forget that calm before the storm.

After getting her hair done and sneaking back into the hotel, Nikki hit the deck when Andrew looked up to the second floor in the hotel lobby and almost saw her, after which point Andrew was confined to his hotel room.

How surreal the whole day felt, when the limo pulled up and Nikki got out to walk down the aisle, the sheer excitement we felt knowing we were about to be married.

“We had the absolute best time at our wedding, everyone danced the night away and really celebrated two best friends tying the knot. We couldn’t have asked for a more perfect day.”

Vendors:
Cliff @ Country Picnic – amazing food & coordinated all the rentals for us. He was the first person I met with upon looking at my first potential wedding venue, needless to say his attention to detail and clear adoration for the location won us over (and the sample of food he brought with him didn’t hurt!)
Laura @ Every Last Detail – ensured I had not a single worry all day. Laura ran with my very scatterbrained summation of the wedding day and made sure it ran perfectly according to plan without us worrying at all!
Erick and David @ Dynamic Sound Entertainment – We clearly were not prepared for our meeting and they were perfect for guiding us and knowing what we were trying to say. They did a phenomenal job, when asked what music they should play we pretty much said 90s and Salsa and they really got the party started!
Hendrick @ Hendrick Moy Photography – He was amazing, plain and simple. Really, the photos speak for themselves, we could not be happier than we are that we chose Hendrick to capture our big day.
