“Whatever our souls are made of, his and mine are the same.”

Emily Bronte

I am always torn between posting a few photos from a wedding to give the couple a sneak peak, or waiting until after the couple has received their photos to share some with everyone. I don’t have a strict workflow when it comes to sharing photos after a wedding. This Allaire State Park wedding was my first wedding of 2018 and maybe it was the downtime over the dreary winter or just because this wedding was beautiful, but I couldn’t wait to share some of the photos. And very shortly after sharing, I did complete the full gallery and as able to send off every photo to the bride and groom.

This was my first time working at this beautiful and charming Allaire State Park wedding chapel. The clean and natural tones in the chapel combined with the natural light made my job during the ceremony very easy! I also loved that we were able to use the grounds afterwards for more formal photos. Earlier in the week the forecast for this day was perfect but then changed to a chance of rain. The rain held out and we were able to get all of the photos we wanted before heading to the South Wall Banquet Hall to continue the celebration. Keep scrolling to see the photos from a great day and to see all of the vendors that contributed!

“I swear I couldn’t love you more than I do right now, and yet I know I will tomorrow”

– Leo Christopher


As I was thinking of what to write for this blog post I was really focusing on the fact that Alex and Eric are getting married this December at the Hotel DuPont, and that most of their photos will take place after sunset. We decided to do their Valley Forge engagement session in the spring so we could still create photos that had sun and nature, which will be different from their wedding day photos. But that is all boring. What really matters is that Alex and Erik are so happy and laid back. They are one of those couples that you know enjoy their lives and being together. They claimed to be awkward as so many couples do, but that really just resulted in photos that involved a lot laughter and candid moments. I just hope that this photo experience doesn’t change them, and that fun “awkwardness” sticks around for the wedding day!
