SAINT JOSEPH'S UNIVERSITY ENGAGEMENT, PHILADELPHIA: ERIC + JACLYN

It's sessions like these that make me want a re-do at my college experience! Eric and Jaclyn met in 2009 while attending Saint Joseph's University in Philadelphia, PA. They were in similar friend groups and enjoyed hanging out on weekends. They spent time running, biking, and exploring the city together, but didn't go on their first official date until 2013! Thankfully, all it took was one date and the rest was history! How romantic it must have been to fall in love on this BEAUTIFUL campus. The stone walls, the arched passageways, the ivy vines, and the feel of history all around - just magical! Congratulations Jaclyn and Eric! You two are literally sunshine and happiness in human form. We love you and can't wait for your Ryland Inn wedding next year!!! <3

I think I'll have dreams about this ivy-laden pathway! 

Obsessed with these garage doors! The perfect backdrop!!

Let the countdown begin!

VINEYARDS AT AQUEBOGUE WEDDING: BIAGIO + DANIELLE (C&CO: KERI)

- - - Guest post by our team photographer Keri - - -

High School sweethearts, Danielle and Biagio were married on a perfect summer day at the Vineyards of Aquebogue on the North Fork of Long Island. Danielle and Biagio are basically the nicest people you will ever meet and their wedding day reflected their easy going personalities and effortless beauty. The day began at a house in the Hamptons right on the water with the girls hanging out, getting ready, and having fun before the big ceremony. After a First Look in the vineyards, we explored the grounds of the venue on a cute little golf cart, letting us get to all of the picturesque locations The Vineyards has to offer. After an intimate vow renewal ceremony (Danielle and Biagio were legally married in a church a few days before) it was party time! The covered porch off the ballroom was the most beautiful cocktail hour location and then it was time to dance the night away. Congrats Danielle & Biagio and thank you for choosing us to photograph your special day!

Squad goals!! 

Such a sweet first look with Dad!

Danielle, what was your first impression of Biagio?

"That he was so stinking cute! He is literally the definition of tall, dark, and handsome!
I loved that he always tried to make me laugh."

The Vineyards at Aquebogue is the perfect venue for a summer wedding! Look how cute Danielle was sneaking up on Biagio for their First Look! 

Love this ceremony space!!

Biagio, what was your first impression of Danielle?

"That she was complexly adorable. It was back in high school, and she was very shy. I remember being in chemistry class with her and she would barely look at me because she was so shy. As we spent a little more time together she broke out of her shell and opened up to me which is when I fell in love with her. I was hooked on her smile."

What moment are you most excited for?

"Our first dance. I just can't wait to be wrapped up in that moment dancing with my life partner."

SHOREHAVEN GOLF CLUB WEDDING: NED + MEGAN

Where do I even start?! I have so many favorite memories from this day...the moment Meg's bouquet arrived and it brought people to tears (go Flowers by Justine!), those moments outside the "church with the blue doors," Meg's sister Kelly's HILARIOUS toast, and of course - ending the night with a limbo battle on the dance floor! We're still on an emotional high! 

Meg & Ned chose a GORGEOUS color palette filled with blush, gold, white, navy, and gray. The bridesmaids all looked incredible in their floor-length blush Joanna August gowns. The reception space was brought to life with flower garlands on the fireplaces, a mix of high & low floral arrangements on the tables, a variety of candles to add a touch of romance, and the perfect gold accents. Every single detail was perfect and dreamy!!! Meg and Ned, your beauty and kindness RADIATES! You've surrounded yourselves with the most amazing people and it was incredible to watch them shower you with the love you so deserve! <3

The most hilarious champagne pop! The cork flew over the balcony and landed on someone's table! 

Ned, describe Meg in 5 words:

"Compassionate, Perfect, Goofy, Beautiful, Stylish"

What are you most excited about for your wedding day?

"The First Look!!!" - both of them

Sometimes it's the tiniest moments that are most beautiful!

How did you meet?

"We met in the 5th grade!!! Ned was this cute little chubby boy with frosted tips (he claims it was Sun In). We had a week-long stint as boyfriend and girlfriend and designated "Hero" by Enrique Iglesias as our song. Needless to say we didn't last at 11 years old but stayed friends throughout middle school and high school." - Meg

Meg, describe Ned in 5 words:

"Patient, Kind, Handsome, Creative, Funny, Hard-working"

Even with a First Look, this is still the most emotional moment of the day! <3

The Shorehaven Golf Club in Norwalk, CT is the perfect place for a wedding! Just beautiful!

The sweetest first dance!

Guys, I did the LIMBO!! Chris *claims* I went too fast for him to be able to focus the camera in time, so he's fired lol. But he did capture the aftermath and it makes my heart SOOO happy! <3

Congratulations Meg and Ned! We couldn't be happier for you two!!!

HOBOKEN NJ ENGAGEMENT: STEVE + JACCI

Steve and Jacci lived in Hoboken together for three years before moving to Austin, TX. Those three years were fundamental to their relationship, so it was extra special to celebrate their engagement in Hoboken! We started off inside the train station, then adventured over to the beautiful cobblestone streets, and ended with sunset on the skyline. The NYC skyline is already romantic, but adding in the cutest couple in love made it even more dreamy!! And can we talk about the GLOW we had inside that train station?!  

The perfect foot pop! :)

When the bride-to-be works for a floral company, a greenery crown is a MUST! 

Congratulations Jacci and Steve!! We cannot wait for your Park Chateau wedding next year!

HIGHLANDS COUNTRY CLUB WEDDING: JON + LAUREN

We had the BEST day with Jon and Lauren! The amount of love surrounding these two was awe-inspiring...from the most fun wedding party (seriously, these bridesmaids are my new BFFs) to their thick-as-thieves family! You could feel the cloud of love over the entire venue! Speaking of which, Highlands Country Club looked stunning as always. Lauren's visions of soft blue accented with greenery and giant white blooms were totally brought to life! :)

Lauren and her sweet momma made me cry!

First Look with Dad followed by a First Look with her groom!! <3

What was your first impression of your fiance?

"When I first saw him he seemed like someone who was laid back, athletic and an overall good guy, but I
didn't know much about him. Jon had cousins coming in from out of town and they were going to be exploring the city. He extended the invite to the team, and I was the only one to accept. Jon and I barely knew each other and there I was at brunch with his two cousins, his sister and him, and we had the best time just wandering through the city hanging out. From that day on I knew that I needed him in my life, whether it be best friends or more." - Lauren

A little behind-the-scenes!! The making of the photo above! ;)

Jon, describe Lauren in 5 words:

"Warm-hearted, Adventurous, Charismatic, Passionate, Fun-Sized"

Lauren, describe Jon in 5 words:

"Loving, Thoughtful, Hilarious, Loyal, Inspiring"

Moment you are most looking forward to:

"We are most excited to be utterly surrounded by all the people we love so dearly."

And of course, a few FUNbooth photos! 

Congratulations Lauren & Jon!!! We wish you a million years of happiness and adventure! <3
