Amidst all of the new wedding trends, there’s much to be said about a traditional wedding. Corinne and Patrick knocked this one out of the park! Between heartfelt notes from Corinne to her family, the look of pure joy when Patrick saw his bride for the first time, and the dance moves guests shared on the dance floor, this wedding was one to remember!
By capturing moments from one of the most memorable days of their lives, I truly got an inside look at what matters most to them and the overwhelming love and support their family and friends have for them. Here are some of my favorite moments from the day – it was hard to pick just a few!
The team at The Beauty Bar in Somerville, NJ helped Corinne look like she was straight out of a fairy tale while keeping her look natural and elegant.
One last check before leaving – looking good, feeling good!
Corinne’s mom wrote her a sweet card to open on her wedding day. The front of the card featured a big, green dinosaur – totally not bridal – and it was such a fun twist to the day!
As well as writing to both of her parents, Corinne also wrote each of her brothers a card, which was a sweet way to show how much her family means to her during this journey.
Patrick received personalized cuff links from his bride, so he can always wear her name on his sleeve.
House of Blooms in Somerville, NJ crafted all of the beautiful floral displays, as well as the bouquets, boutonnieres, and centerpieces for the wedding.
Much of the morning on Corinne and Patrick’s wedding day was cloudy, but right before the bride came down the aisle, the sun was shining!
Corinne and Patrick chose to forego the first look. I could feel the excited, nervous butterflies in the air as he awaited his bride down the aisle!
The mayor of Manville, NJ married the happy couple.
The detail on Corinne’s dress was gorgeous! And Patrick looked extra handsome in his grey tux.
If you’ve never seen what heaven looks like, it’s unlimited donuts at a weddings!
Grab your tissues – I had to grab mine – the bride shared an emotion dance with her father.
When I first met Corinne’s parents they said that their daughter was so special, and so deserving of a perfect, beautiful wedding. Her dad gushed about how great a kid she is and how he was so proud of her. I couldn’t help but remember that moment as I captured their dance together.
The groom and mom dance always warrants a few tears too!
An alternative to the traditional sign-in book, the couple had a custom-drawn tree and guests signed the branches to symbolize their growing family.
There was plenty of love to go around, also plenty of drinks. This crew knows how to bring the party!
There’s one in every wedding, but this time we got lucky because there were two! These two fellas had a great time eating their donuts together. We were shocked the wall of sweets lasted as long as they did without getting completely consumed by all of the guests!
The ring of life, the ring of sprinkles, THE RINGS!
The brides grandparents won the anniversary dance, which was a sweet way to celebrate long-lasting love!
