School sweethearts Amy & Mike have been in each others live since nursery school.  They were prom dates senior year in high school and great friends through college.  They moved to Hoboken to start their new lives together and last April Mike surprised Amy with roses and a special question.  He than took her to dinner at a favorite restaurant where both of their families were waiting to celebrate the happy couple.  I just can't wait to capture their wedding at Trump National Golf Course in Bedminster this June!

Trump National Golf Course Bedminster: A Wedding That's Pretty in Pink: New Jersey Wedding Photographers

When Scott met Jackie in Morristown NJ on a beautiful summer day he knew there was something special about their connection.  Five months later, the day after Thanksgiving, at Scott's family in California he decided the time was right.  A hot air balloon ride took them over beautiful scenery as he proposed, later they drove back to Scott's parents home where Jackie's parents had flown in from NJ to surprised them. For the big day Jackie went to Kleinfeld Bridal in NYC to pick out a stunning Romona Keveza gown paired with sparkly Jimmy Choo shoes and her grandmother's sapphire earrings.  Amy Jones of Sally Duvall Makeup Artistry did a wonderful job bringing out Jackie's stunning natural beauty.   Dieci Spa & Salon created a chic classic look for Jackie and her bridesmaids.   For the girls' dresses she went to Bella Bridesmaid in Madison NJ and opted for simple sheath dresses in a lovely shade of pink.  Scott & his groomsmen looked dashing in their Hugo Boss Tuxedos from Nordstrom.

Laura Grusky of Elegant Events by Laura planned this beautiful event and Zeke of Zeke Torres Films from CA came in to capture the day on video.  With the ceremony in New Vernon at The Church of Christ the King and an elegant reception at Trump National Golf Club of Bedminster it was a day to remember. Jardiniere Fine Florist of Fair Hills created the look Jackie and Scott envisioned.  Jackie chose a simple lily of the valley bouquet for herself and pink roses for the girls.   DJ Jack Bertmeo of LJ Projections provided the entertainment for the night.  A beautiful cake by Gourmet Touch Bakery was accented with pink roses and ivory orchids.  The couple drank from a traditional German marriage cup after cutting the cake.  The guests were treated with with chocolate hot air balloon favors from Enjou Chocolat in Morristown a sweet reminder of their proposal.




Trump National Golf Club Bedminster: A Wedding to Trump! New Jersey Wedding Photographers

The last thing we expected from our delicate blond-haired blue-eyed bride, was to hear that she was a Harvard ice hockey player with a penchant for collecting rubber ducks and Jimmy Choos!  Courtney and her twinkly-eyed husband Brian met at ESPN.  She was the 'girl' in marketing and he was the 'guy' in PR.  Their first date was dinner & a U2 concert!  Almost ten years later this fun loving couple decided to take the leap. Courtney was glowing in a Liancarlo creation from Bridal Couture of Short Hills and silver peep-toed Jimmy Choo's of course.  Her bridesmaids wore one shoulder sheath dresses in a lovely shade of currant by Jenny Yoo of Jenny Yoo NYC.  The ceremony was at Christ Church in Summit NJ.  For the reception nothing else would do but the Trump National Golf Course in Bedminster.  The rolling hills and soft sunset light made a surreal backdrop heightened by bagpipers brought in to welcome the guests.  Jardiniere Fine Flowers of Far Hills created rich wine & gold arrangements and the Essence Band kept the party moving!
