NJ Wedding Photographers: Fiddler's Elbow Country Club: A History of Love

Lindsey and Drew were college sweethearts at Holy Cross College in Worcester, Massachusetts.  After seven amazing years Drew proposed on Lindsey's 26th birthday in NYC with a photo album of treasured collage memories.  Both students of History they were drawn to the old manor feel and expansive property of Fiddler's Elbow Country Club for their big day as it reminded them of the vine covered academic buildings and grounds of their dear alma matre. 


The romantic, timeless gowns of Monique Lhuillier captured Lindsey's heart and both her and her bridesmaids wore them. We adored the graceful style of her sweetheart gown and off the shoulder lace bodice which she could remove for dancing ease later in the evening. Bow accented Kate Spade shoes added romance and style. An event planner herself Lindsey choose a lavender and spring green color palette as an homage to Holy Cross's collegiate color purple. 

For the ceremony they chose Lindsey's home parish of Saint James Church in Basking Ridge NJ. Afterwards the newly wed couple was greeted with a fanfare of lavender ribbons and congratulations.   The couple then was whisked away to Fiddler's Elbow Country Club for a stroll on the grounds and signature cocktails. They danced the night away to music from The Groove Shop.  Capturing the sweetness of this couple and the depth of their love are what I cherish about my work!

The Shadowbrook: Traditions in Love: Monmouth County Wedding Photographers

Katie & Joe met at her brother's wedding and fell fast in love.  It is wonderful that they both found each other, as family tradition is close to the heart of this couple.  The veil Katie choose was the same one her mother was married in, their cake topper sat atop her grandmother's wedding cake 61 years ago and to cut the cake and they used Joe's grandfather's U.S. Navy dress sword used to cut the cake in his family for generations.  I couldn't think of a better way to move forward into a marriage than to have the foundation of all those loved ones before you!  Congratulations Katie & Joe!!
