Grounds for Sculpture Rats wedding – Hamilton, NJ – Trina & Dennis

Trina & Dennis are one of my favorite couples from this past year. I started the day with Dennis in his hotel suite, photographing him in black and white film. Then I went to photograph Trina getting ready with her daughter. I even made a makeshift background for Trina’s portraits. I found an amazing spot right outside their hotel, where the morning light was just dying, that was perfect for their first look. We then drove over to Grounds for Sculpture in Hamilton, NJ for their ceremony and reception.

Before the ceremony, we walked around Grounds for Sculpture for some beautiful portraits. Grounds for Sculpture in the springtime is amazing because everything is in bloom. All the pinks, purples and red colored flowers popping up everywhere is stunning. Trina chose lavender for her flowers and the detail for the grooms boutonniere. She also added it to the details on the cake and all-around Rats restaurant, where we created the rest of their Grounds for Scultpure wedding photos. There’ll be more from this wedding coming soon, including the reception and lots more fun.

Trina and Dennis did an incredible job with the planning for their Grounds for Sculpture Rats wedding photos. They have clean and simple but impeccable style, which you can see in their details. They had their ceremony outdoors at Grounds for Sculpture at “The Nine Muses” by Carlos Dorrien. We then photographed their family formals and a couple more portraits of the bride and groom before they started their reception at Rat’s Restaurant. After the reception, we walked around a little bit more to photograph with Trina and Dennis and found some amazing photo bombs with random strangers. We had an incredible day.

Trina and Dennis have a gorgeous album from their wedding that told the story of the day, as well as some beautiful wall art to display in their home. I had a great time with them and I wish them nothing but the best in the future.
