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!

Taryn and James winter wedding could be described in two words, elegant and FUN! Taryn looked stunning in her Jim Helm gown from Mustillo's Bridal in Red Bank. She had a lace cover up made from her mother's bridal gown which she wore over her gown for the catholic ceremony at St. James in Red Bank. After the ceremony , Taryn changed out of the lace cover up added a sparkly belt and drop earrings. The brides maids all choose their own long , black gowns and were wrapped in fur coats.
Taryn and James meet in high school. She went to Red Bank Catholic and he CBA. Red Bank holds a lot of fun memories for the couple. They wanted to take some playful shots in town.
We later headed to Navesink Country Club where Craig and Darryn from Craig Kiely and Darry Murphy Designs transformed the ballroom into a winter wonderland. The couple toke a spin on the ice skating riding a Zambone prior to being announced as Mr. & Mrs. Cahill.
I loved that they served comfort food, gourmet sliders and mac and cheese for dinner. This was a dancing crowd. The amazing Brian Kirk and the Jerks had them dancing all night long. They ended the night by cutting their Fudgy The Whale ice cream cake from Carvel, a child hood favorite.
