Lauren & Chris’s NJ Private Estate Wedding was an end-of-summer dream! Lauren being 1 of 4 sisters, weddings were not new for her parents. Her parents helped an enormous amount on the wedding day. Lauren’s mom helped with all the florals. Lauren’s dad made sure the outdoor tented setup and everything was perfect!
Bridal Morning Preps
Both Lauren & Chris got ready in different rooms for their NJ private estate wedding. Chris had a personal barber come to the house to give him a fresh cut and a quick facial mask. The groomsmen were all down in the finished basement while Lauren had free reign of every room.
First Look and photographs
We found a beautiful quiet location on their property with soft light for the reveal. In addition to finding good light, the sun was baking on their wedding day, so we always found a comfortable spot for them. The rest of the bridal party came over with spouses, and we had an enormous amount of fun frolicking at this ethereal treeline with perfect natural light.
NJ Private Estate Wedding Ceremony
We discussed this unique tree on their property before the wedding. It has special sentimental meaning to Lauren & Chris, and in addition, the ceremony took place underneath it. Lauren’s father is a judge, so he performed the actual ceremony.
New Jersey Private Estate Wedding Reception
They let loose with their closest loved ones and did not hold back! The speeches were beautiful, especially from Lauren’s twin sister, the matron of Honor. It is special having an outdoor tented wedding and a live band towards the tail end of summer!
In closing, it was an absolute pleasure to document Lauren & Chris’s relationship from their engagement session in the snow to their beautiful end-of-summer wedding day. Delivering their fantastic wedding album was an honor 🙂
