Shannon & Josh opted for a small wedding at Rutgers Gardens because they really just wanted something simple and intimate and the silver lining of COVID is that this is really the wedding they wanted in the first place.
Here are some favorites from their fall wedding at Rutgers Gardens!

Photographers love highly reflective surfaces because they make for some great photo ops.
Peter Parker found his Mary Jane.
Shannon got ready at The Heldrich in New Brunswick, so we got a fun city vibe for some of her shots.
A mother’s work is never done.
We headed over to Rutgers Gardens for the wedding right after the first look, and they walked up the aisle together! Love when couples break the mold from what’s “typical.”
Only immediate family was present, so it made this wedding all the more intimate and special. The groom’s mom is actually a photographer, so it’s always an honor to be asked by a fellow pro to be a part of such an important day in their lives.
If you give a girl a flowy dress, this moment has to be anticipated.
Shannon totally hates champagne, but she was a real sport about it and gracefully offered some (most) of it to Josh.
There is no shortage of beautiful spots for wedding portraits at Rutgers Gardens, including the gorgeous bamboo forest.
