New Vernon: Town & Country Chic: Part 2: New Vernon Wedding Photographers

The rolling hills of the New Vernon estate made for an elegant and romantic setting.  Lauren added a champagne sash to her dress for the reception and traded her veil for a simple white flower hair piece .   Larkspur & Thyme cut young saplings from the property and used them inside the tent along with centerpieces full of dahlias, hydrangeas, and apples in an autumn palate.  The spacious heated tent was provided by Sperry Tents.   Place cards were held in sterling silver dishes of acorns, sheaths of wheat adorned the table,  and firecrackers with monogrammed matches lite up the night.  The cake by Joanne Gusweiler of CoCoCuisine in Bedminster was right in time with the season!  Laughter and tears followed every speech, and the crowd danced the night away.   The Eturnity Band of NYC was just so much fun!

New Veron: Town & Country Chic: Part 1: New Vernon Wedding Photographers

The fall colors could not have been more vibrant for our handsome couple Rob and Lauren!  Their wedding was held at the bride's parents private estate in New Vernon, New Jersey.  Florist Carol Magadini from  Larkspur & Thyme was lucky enough to be able to work with her natural surroundings to create refreshingly informal bouquets and centerpieces.  Lauren was so excited to use the fall foilage!  Almost all of the flowers used were grown on the estate creating such a sentimental feel. Lauren looked absolutely radiant in a delicate lace gown by Monique L'huillier and Christian Louboutin open toe pumps all purchased from the bridal department of Saks Fifth Ave in NYC.  The gorgeous blue topaz & peridot ring was a gift from Lauren's grandmother.  Susan Brinson of Studio Brinson in NYC created all of the menues, place cards, and CD covers.  The girls wore Amsale in a rich shade of chocolate.

Congratulations to our stunning couple Beryl & Eric!  The pair looked as if they walked right out of a old Hollywood movie set.  Beryl glowed in an exquisite lace Pnina Tornai.  The couple began their day at The Hilton of Short Hills getting prepped for the big event.  The florist Eunice A. Valerio created some very inspired bouquets, unique and fresh.  The bridesmaids wore simple gold sheath dresses from Shoshanna.

The Rockleigh Country Club: Crystal & Lace: Part Two:New Jersey Wedding Photographers

So here is part two of Kelli & Nino's extravagant crystal & lace adorned reception!  We loved working with the lush grounds at The Rockleigh Country Club.  Daniel Florals and Events, Inc. really blew us away with their lighting design for the evening!  They created such a dramatic, high-end club feel and The Caleps really kept the guests on their toes dancing all night long.   The Cake Topper of Staten Island created the lavish four-layer cake adorned with edible flowers.    The C'est Papier Inc. invitations were simple and elegant from Sincerely Yours Custom Invitations, and the chocolate menus were good enough to eat! kelli_18_

The Rockleigh Country Club: Crystal & Lace: Part One: New Jersey Wedding Photographers

We were so excited to work with Kelli & Nino after photographing them for their engagement!  The gorgeous couple met ten years ago in their freshman year of college.  Kelli lovingly recalls,  "We started dating that summer and were inseparable ever since."  Nino proposed among the beautiful flowers at Montauk Manor.  Kelli, who works as an event planner herself, enlisted the help of Sincerely Yours Events to work with her creating a romantic candlelit English garden theme. Kelli went to Kleinfeld's to get her Pnina Tornai dress.  It fit like it was made just for her and the Manolo Blahnik cyrstal sandals she picked were the perfect finishing touch. Mancini Giuffre Salon in Staten Island did an exquisite job with hair and make up.  The bridesmaids were stunning in Vera Wang originals in a classic caramel with rhinestone accents that she found at Always a Bridesmaid Boutique.  Daniel Florals and Events Inc. created lush bouquets with feather accents and warm colors.  Nino and the boys looked dashing in Armani Collezioni.

The ceremony moved to Brooklyn at St. Ephrem's Parish.

Check out our blog in the next few days to see the stunning crystal adorned reception at The Rockleigh Country Club.
