Nija and Steve had a romantic wedding at Brigalias in Sicklerville, NJ! Nija had originally found me through instagram. When I met them in person at Longwood Gardens for their engagement session, they were all for letting me play and be my crazy self trying out all types of fun new techniques on their session. It turned out to be one of the most colorful, stunning engagements there to date. Later, I found out through one of my posts from their engagement session, she was friends with another couple who’s wedding we are photographing coming up in a couple months. (Small world instagram is) They were also attending this wedding as guests!
So this was one fast faced day and really just flew by! What’s great about this venue is everything is all in one place, so we could split up and cover the day. We started at the same hotel doing details. When we got to groom prep, we were greeted by two of the most adorable, rambunctious boys that I found out were their sons! (They were so adorable!!). Can I tell you how much I love the color palette?? In a sea is pastels lately, it really stood out! Plus, that garter and the groomsmen t-shirts totally made the nerdy kid inside me super happy.
Since we didn’t do a first look, Dave and I split up to do bridal party separately before getting ready for the ceremony. Everything was kind of a whirl wind after the ceremony as we ran through family, bridal party, and couples portraits, then rushed back to finish setting up for the reception. Dave, my assistant(my brother, Dru) and I are all gamers, so when it came time to do details on the cake, we all were in absolutely admiration of their cake topper. (Wait till you see it – and Nija & Steve — If I didn’t say it on the day of…it was pretty epic.)
I’m kind of sad the wedding is already over, but I’m definitely excited to continue to photograph their family in the future! (Since apparently their entire family is expecting a baby number 3 — inside joke.). Enjoy the photos!
