ELEGANT FALL WEDDING AT SOUTHGATE MANOR
We are so excited to post the photos from this Fall wedding that started out in Staten Island and ended at the beautiful Southgate Manor in Freehold, NJ! James and Kaitlin are adorable and SO in love. Their VIPs were awesome, and they were an absolute blast to photograph! Read on to see how the day unfolded!
GETTING READY IN STATEN ISLAND
The bride prepped for the big day at her childhood home in Staten Island. We met the video crew from Color Room Films (Steve is a dream to work with!) and got right to work. Kaitlin designed and created the invitation suite all on her own, and it was gorgeous! It complimented the event beautifully, and created the perfect backdrop to photograph the wedding rings. Kaitlin sported a perfect side-swept 'do by Stephanie Russo, and makeup by Christina. Super sparkly shoes and jewelry topped off the look, and the pendants with her grandmothers photos were a sweet accent to her bridal bouquet. Plus, can we all agree that she totally ROCKED her bridal portraits?! I think so!

BRIDAL PARTY PORTRAITS AT SOUTHGATE MANOR
We were thrilled when we arrived at Southgate because not only do they treat all their vendors so well, and have a beautiful ballroom, but they also had the perfect covered spot to photograph portraits. Not only that but there were TONS of fall colors to serve as the backdrop! The bridal party was amazing and so cooperative. After we cut them loose we toured the grounds with the newlyweds and ended with time to spare! They had time to go freshen up BEFORE cocktail even started, now that's a win!
