Jillian + Tom • Hamilton Farm Wedding


Love, laughter, and blue hues filled the air on a delightful September day at Hamilton Farm Golf Club in Gladstone, NJ, as Jillian and Tom united their lives in a beautiful wedding ceremony. The couple's special day was a true testament to the love and joy of sharing life's precious moments with family and friends. From the tender first look to the heartwarming ceremony officiated by Jillian's brother-in-law, John (whose wedding to Jill’s sister, Katie, I had the pleasure of photographing in late 2019), and the delightful reception featuring a guest performance by Tom's dad, this wedding was a celebration that will forever hold a cherished place in their hearts.

Jillian and Tom shared a their first look before the ceremony. Their emotions ran high as they saw each other for the first time, the love and excitement evident in their eyes. 

The venue, Hamilton Farm, exuded rustic charm and elegance, offering a picturesque setting for the couple's ceremony. Jillian and Tom exchanged their vows and promised to love each other unconditionally. As mentioned earlier Jill's brother-in-law, John, stepped into the role of officiant. His personal touch and warm words infused the ceremony with a sense of family and shared history, making it all the more meaningful. Tears of joy and laughter filled the air as Jill & Tom exchanged rings, sealing their commitment to a lifetime of love and partnership. 

Blue Elegance 
The bridesmaids were a vision of elegance in their navy blue dresses, perfectly complementing the blue hues that adorned the wedding decor. The bride herself looked stunning in a timeless gown that radiated elegance and grace, accentuating her beauty on this special day. Tom looked dapper in his classic suit, standing beside his bride with pride and excitement.

Reception and Joyful Celebrations 
As the sun set and the stars lit up the night sky, the celebration continued with the reception as family and friends gathered to toast the newlyweds and dance the night away.

But the highlight of the evening was the surprise guest performance by Tom's dad, a talented musician in his own right. With a guitar in hand he sang old rock & roll song, making the reception all the more special. 

The atmosphere was filled with laughter, heartfelt toasts, and dancing, creating unforgettable memories that Jillian, Tom, and their loved ones will cherish forever. The magic of the evening perfectly captured the essence of Jillian and Tom's love, marking the beginning of a new chapter in their lives together. 

Here's to a lifetime of love and happiness for Jillian and Tom!
