Brooke + Alex • The Architects Golf Club Wedding • New Jersey Wedding Photographer


Brooke and Alex's love story began over 20 years ago when they met in first grade!
So the excitement was high when Alex finally proposed! You may remember their engagement session featured here.

Their day started with a pop of champagne and a few photos of Brooke and her bridesmaids in their matching PJs. After photographing Brooke's gorgeous details it was time for the bride to slip into her amazing wedding gown by Mikaella Bridal and stunning Christian Louboutin shoes! Not to mention the beautiful flower bouquets by Thistle Bee The Florist that she and her bridal party got to carry.

A few portraits with her ladies followed and we headed to their first look location where Alex and my second photographer Tori were already in place. It was one of Alex's favorite spots- the 13th hole.

It is such a special moment for the bride and groom to see each other for the first time on their wedding day. And it was a privilege to be there to capture such genuine love and admiration for one another, mixed with the excitement of what was to come.
We took a few photos on the bridge, hopped on a golf cart and headed out to a few other spots on the golf course for their portraits.

Brooke and Alex tied the knot in a beautiful outdoor ceremony overlooking the golf course of The Architects Golf Club in Phillipsburg, New Jersey.
Their ceremony and pretty much the entire day was one of the most emotional ones I have ever witnessed.

Brooke's father passed away earlier this year and he was so dearly missed especially on a day like this. One of the ways Brooke honored her late father was by sewing a piece of his wardrobe into her dress. As she walked down the aisle with her mom, he was walking down the aisle with Brooke, as well.
There was so much love present as the bride and groom exchange their own written vows that moved  everyone to tears.

Brooke and Alex's ceremony was followed by an evening of memorable toasts, dancing and celebrating the new Mr. & Mrs.

Congratulations to The Newlyweds! Wishing you a lifetime of love and happiness!
