Something Blue • Styled Shoot • New Jersey Wedding Photographer

I love the softness of blush pink juxtaposed with the boldness of dark blue. I had no doubt these colors would be so perfect for a summer wedding.. romantic, dreamy, elegant and classy. 
This inspirational shoot had been in the works for a while and I was so excited it was finally becoming a reality! 
Everything that day exuded romance- the beautiful tablescape by Stacey Sainato of Peony Events designed around French dining set which was provided by Melissa and Jennifer of Chelsea Forge, the gorgeous florals by Conroy Florist, the hair and makeup by Jacqueline Cicala (how romantic was that braid?!), the invitation suite and menu custom designed by Little Black Dress Paperie, not to mention the breathtaking gown courtesy of Elizabeth Johns Bridal Couture and cobalt blue suit by Cozy Tux! Absolute perfection! 
When visiting Chelsea Forge a few days before our shoot I was immediate drawn to the beautiful window in the downstairs of the barn, envisioning our bride posing there as she awaited her ceremony. The beautiful light seeping through, the framing of the ivy, the unique vintage armchair… all added to this romantic setting. 
Chelsea Forge outdoor property had so many great spots to photograph! We all agreed on setting up our table right in the center of an open field with this huge tree in the background. 
Our gorgeous models, Alexandra and Matt are a real life couple who has been together for eight years. Their chemistry was undeniable and it was so easy to see how much they enjoyed each other’s company. They were so adorable, I couldn’t stop snapping! 
I am still in awe! It was such an incredible experience to work with so many talented professionals! I cannot describe how thankful I am for everyone’s work and effort, and days of planning to make this shoot one for the books.

Not to mention - our shoot was featured on Red Oak Weddings!
