What a spectacular day we had photographing Dan and Kaylie's wedding at The Heldrich and Kirkpatrick Chapel in New Brunswick, NJ! We lucked out with great weather, a wonderful group of vendors, and of course, a fabulous couple. Kaylie did a great job at pulling together tons of fun spring details to accent her wedding. The chapel offered up beautiful lush ground for portraits, while the bustling downtown of New Brunswick around The Heldrich served as the perfect backdrop for her elegant yet super fun wedding. They definitely kept their guests in mind when selecting their venue, They knew they wanted to party, and everyone could do that without worry knowing the only place they were headed at the end of the night was upstairs! It was the perfect night spent with an awesome group of family and friends!
Bride & Groom Getting Ready and First Look- The Heldrich
Kaylie prepped for the big day with the help of the talented beauty teams at Boho Hair Salon, and Masha Hair and Makeup. We were loving the custom lip color that Masha whipped up for the bride right on the spot, it was gorgeous! While she was beautifying we photographed some of her details including the wedding rings courtesy of Jovi Fine Jewelers, and invitation suite from Paperless Post. Once the bride was all dolled up she slipped on her gown with the help of her mom and sister, stepped into her blinged out Badgley Mischka shoes, and finished off the look with earrings and a veil (which made for some amazing bridal portraits!). Meanwhile the guys spent the morning in the suite above us getting dapper, opening gifts, and chilling while they waited for the girls to be ready for the first look. We worked so well along side the video team at Live Picture Studios, who helped us flawlessly execute a first look in front of the hotel along with some bridal party and couples photos before getting the bride into hiding before her guests started arriving.
Ceremony & Just Married Portrait Session- Kirkpatrick Chapel
Kaylie was beaming as her grandfather walked her down the aisle to her groom who was anxiously awaiting her arrival! The service was filled with lots of laughter, which is always fun to photograph in addition to all of the sweet emotional moments that make up a wedding ceremony. The newlyweds exited the chapel into a sea of bubbles created by their bridal party and guests. Their exit was followed by a champagne toast that may or may not have left some bridesmaids a little damp, but it certainly made for some funny photos (we'll have to get permission to share those gems, haha!). After completing the family photos we headed to the back of the chapel, as suggested by the groom, and man was that awesome! Gorgeous greenery, pretty architecture and the girls' slightly cascading bouquets from Bloomers in Allentown, NJ added a beautiful pop of spring color. Their bridal party was so welcoming and great with direction that it was truly a delight to have them in front of our lenses. Dan and Kaylie then had the pleasure of being chauffeured back to the hotel in my mom-mobile just to score a few extra moments for those 'just married' photos. We're so glad they did because they are some of our favorite shots of the day! And just like that it was time to move on to what they'd been waiting for... the party!
Reception- The Heldrich
Kaylie worked closely with the floral designers at Bloomers to achieve the look she was going for and I have to say it was impeccable! The combination of tall and short floral centerpieces mixed with glass and gold geometric lanterns and candles really set the tone for her elegant and romantic spring wedding. The uplighting provided by the guys at Mazz Entertainment was the perfect compliment to the room design and was only outdone by their skills on the dance floor. They kept that party hopping! All in all it was just a terrific day that we were honored to be a part of. Congrats Mr. & Mrs. Robinson, enjoy!
