We photographed Matt and Claire's beautiful garden wedding at Grounds for Sculpture in Hamilton, NJ. Starting with the intimate ceremony leading into their portraits and finishing with their reception at Rat's Restaurant.
Wedding Ceremony at Grounds for Sculpture in Hamilton, NJ
Matt and Claire's wedding ceremony was so beautiful and intimate. With only their close family and friends, not even a traditional bridal party, it was a nice change of pace for us! They exchanged their own very sweet vows, and Matt gifted Claire's daughter a necklace near the end of the ceremony. So thoughtful of him! We lucked out with pretty backlighting throughout their ceremony, too. Everything was perfect!
Bride and Groom Portraits
Grounds for Sculpture is such an amazing place for photos, too! I could have spent hours walking around with them finding new and exciting locations that were all different from one to the next. Claire had a simple rose bouquet and Matt looked so sharp in his navy suit!
Wedding Reception at Rat's Restaurant at Grounds for Sculpture in Hamilton, NJ
This restaurant was so pretty! With a wooden structure, amber lanterns and a gorgeous chandelier, it was cozy enough to fit maybe 80-100 people. Their reception was tons of fun, too. Everyone danced the day away with smiles on their faces from ear to ear the entire time! And I love that there were kids there, they had a BLAST to say the least!
