It was a fall romance at Caffe Galleria in Lambertville, New Jersey on Tuesday night!
Fabienne and John sipped their delectable cappuccino’s under the covered patio with plush blankets and warm hearts. This quaint cafe, shares special meaning to the two of them, which is why they chose this location to capture this amazing time in their lives. Not only can they see the church they will be married in through the trees from the patio, but they were also engaged here on March 30, 2015 as well! John planned the entire thing perfectly, as if it was out of a movie! Fabienne said that John has a violinist and a pianist play as he sang an Italian art song called “Morgen” (Tomorrow) by Richard Strauss to her (that he translated to English for her of course). If you hadn’t figured it out yet, John is a professional Rossini Tenor who preforms for various opera companies, he teaches private voice lessons AND one heck of a romantic! ::swoon:: They spend quite a bit of time here trying different gelato’s, enjoying the cider, and of course reminiscing about that perfect day!
Before reaching Caffee Galleria, we walked along the colorful path by Lambertville Station. The leaves were bright and gorgeous, and we were all so happy we were able to catch the fall foliage in November (which is totally hit or miss in NJ) ! The weather had it out for us, but rain will not keep us away from capturing these beautiful moments. In fact, I think it made it more romantic. There is no better way to spend a rainy day than snuggling with that special someone wrapped up in a cozy blanket and something warm in a cup!
Fabienne & John, thank you for allowing me to capture these special moments for you! I am looking forward to your amazing wedding in 2016!
“And tomorrow the sun will shine again
and slowly descent silently we will look in each other’s eyes
and upon us will sink the mute silence of happiness”

Amber and Nick had a beautiful rustic wedding at Massos Red Pine Inn.
It is one of my favorite places to shoot simply because of their GORGEOUS waterfall ceremonies. When I met with Amber and Nick, I knew that their wedding would be a lot of fun. They were both super laid back, easy going, and they clearly were in love!
The day of their wedding the weather could not have been better! I had quite a few weddings in May and this was a double wedding weekend for me! Luckily, the weather was amazing, and the photos could not be more perfect! I know every bride always worries about the weather and I try to stress that weather will not determine how your day will go. However, when the sun is shining, everyone cannot help but smile!
Believe it or not, I think it’s pretty hard to have a rustic wedding in New Jersey, because we have so many golf clubs around. Massos Red Pine Inn is the absolute perfect venue for this. It’s a hidden gem, it really is. Massos actually has a few different choices on their property; the crystal manor, the Red Pine Inn, and even a huge tent! You really can’t go wrong here. Anyway, the Red Pine Inn, is quaint, it’s cozy, and it really bring family and friends together. Just wait until you see the pictures below. You will totally understand what I mean. Amber and Nick’s wedding was full of good people, gathering together to celebrate their love! At no point did I feel out of place. Guest were coming up and chatting with us, the staff was amazing, and all in all, it was just a fabulous day.
Amber’s bridesmaids wore the prettiest shade of purple, and Nick’s groomsmen looked dapper in their matching vests! The flowers, and the greenery, everything was amazing. But enough of me chatting about it, I know you want to jump right to the images. Check them out, and enjoy!
Amber and Nick, thank you for trusting me with your memories, and congratulations!

Amanda and Marc were having their wedding at Ron Jaworskis Blue Heron Pines!
Which happens to be one of my favorite venues! I love the location, the staff and the grounds. I have never been treated better at another venue, and neither have my couples. I write that a lot about this venue, but I just cannot stress enough, how much of an amazing venue it is, and how well they take care of their brides and grooms. After all, it’s customer service like this, that you should really look for to host your special day.
When Amanda first contacted me to shoot her wedding, I asked her who I can thank for the referral. I was shocked when she told me to thank my husband! Apparently, they played volleyball together! I am instantly blown away by anyone who plays volleyball on a team, because I could not play volleyball to save my life! (Amanda is amazing by the way! Just ask her for a friendly game of Vball!) When she told me she was having her wedding at Ron Jaworskis Blue Heron Pines, well let’s just say I couldn’t have been happier!
Amanda & Marc’s wedding could not have been on a more perfect day! The sun was shining, and the grass was so green! I was looking forward to getting right to the bridals because that is usually my favorite part of the day, but when I saw all of her gorgeous details, I had to take my time and play! She had two different shoes (seriously, such a smart idea!), a pretty perfume bottle, special cuff links that the groom’s sister would be giving him later that day, a necklace from her grandmother and so much more… Amanda was so prepared for her wedding day! I try to help out as much as I can with this, and she listened 150%! Going above and beyond for my clients is so important to me, so when I hear of tips and tricks for your wedding day, or how to better prepare, of course I share as much as I can!
The day went so smoothly, and everything was on time, if not early! Thankfully we had an amazing timeline! Her colors were bright pink, which really popped with the green grass. I love everything about her wedding, and how amazing the theme transpired throughout. The pink was found on the cake, in the custom sunglasses, the groomsmen’s vests, the centerpieces and napkins and more!
At the end of the night, we had a sparkler exit and even did some light writing!
All in all, I truly believe she will cherish these photos forever, and I am so happy that she chose me to capture this special day. Amanda and Marc, thank you, from the bottom of my heart for trusting me with your memories and being such amazing clients!
I cannot wait to go back to Ron Jaworskis Blue Heron Pines!

Travel for a wedding to Gabriellas Manor in Greene, NY? Umm.. YES!
When I received the inquory, it was from Danielle’s sister, Bridgett. Another photographer! She was looking for a wedding photographer to document her sisters wedding at Gabriellas Manor, and wanted to make sure she was in good hands because pictures are so important to them! I have to be honest with you, documenting a wedding where there is a photographer in the family is always stressful. Not because I can’t do it, but moreso, because I am so terrified that I won’t do the job up to their standards! I am so happy to announce that Danielle LOVED the images! It made me so elated, but more so, it made her family happy! My job was done, and I am proud to show off these beautiful images.
Danielle and Lee have known eachother for quite some time now. They decided to exchange their vows at the beautiful Gabriellas Manor in Greene, NY which was established in 2013. It was quite a drive for me, but I love to travel and see new places, and was up for the challenge! Gabriella’s Manor was very quaint and pretty. The view from the porch and the ceremony location was simply breathtaking. We don’t get views like this here in New Jersey!
The theme for her wedding was so fun too! Bright pinks, rich grays, and black suits. Danielle did a lot of DIY for her wedding with the help of her mother, her friends and her family. It was a lot of fun, oh and of course, she had to have glitter covering local wine favors! Danielle and Lee even had a vintage truck parked out front! It was the most vibrant orange I had ever seen! At the end of the night we did some light writing AND a sparkler send off. I love when sparkler send off’s are on steps coming down right toward me. It came out so amazing, and I am so happy with how everything turned out! I can’t wait to travel again!
Take a look at all of these gorgeous images from Danielle & Lee’s wedding at Gabriella’s Manor in Greene, NY!
