Elegant, classy, with a touch of modern is how I'd describe Kathleen and Scott's wedding day! When describing them as a couple, I'd also throw in joyful, sweet, fun, and ever so thoughtful! The two were wed at the St. Rose of Lima Church in Short Hills, NJ and celebrated afterward with their family and friends at the Park Avenue Club in Florham Park, NJ. It was such a sweet and beautiful day! :)
Let's kick things off with Kathleen's gorgeous Monique Lhuillier wedding dress!
Kathleen and Scott chose pink and navy as their color scheme...I could not be happier!!
Kathleen designed her wedding shoes herself through Shoes of Prey! I can spend wayyyy too much time on that site!
Thanks to my lovely husband and second shooter Christopher for capturing such great moments of Scott's morning!
For most of Kathleen's life, she lived in a gorgeous home with her family. This home had an amazing multi-story spiral staircase, which provided so many sweet memories throughout her childhood. When Kathleen's parents sold the home later in life, Kathleen asked the new owners if she could take her wedding photos there, *someday* in the future when she met her mister right. The owners excitedly awaited her call and so generously held to their promise! When I look at that photo on the right, I like to imagine 5 year old Kathleen staring out that very same window!
The light in this church made me so happy! A photographer's dream!
I loved the Park Avenue Club's permanent outdoor ballroom! The draping and chandeliers are so elegant!
Congrats again Scott and Kathleen! You two are so wonderful and I'm so happy to know you! Thank you for giving me the honor of photographing your love! <3
