Lizzy and Steve’s English Manor Wedding is one of my most favorites of the year, I love this couple and I love this colorful and joyful wedding. These two are one of the most sweetest and nicest couples I have ever met, I am so excited to share this gorgeous Summer wedding at the English Manor!
I first met Steve and Lizzy last Spring and then again last July for their engagement session at their proposal spot, Riverside Gardens Park in Red Bank. These two oozed chemistry then so I knew their day was going to be amazing and I was right!
I love the natural light at the English Manor. It was the perfect venue for getting ready portraits and details. I loved capturing Lizzy’s excitement while getting into her slim fitting dress, it was the perfect dress for her figure and I loved the light blue sash she added!
While I was with the girls, my second shooter Matthew covered the guys. Matthew was able to capture all Steve’s excitement and even got the guys outside for some fun shots.
Lizzy and Steve were traditional and decided not to see each other prior to the ceremony. Instead, we captured an adorable back to back shot of them right before they officially saw each other at their ceremony and right after they both read emotional cards from one another.
Their ceremony was filled with readings by their loved ones, tears of happiness as well as the sweetest personal vows I have ever heard! Not only was Steve’s reaction to seeing his bride one of the most adorable moments I have witnessed as a wedding photographer, but their sweet smiles and adorable first walk as husband and wife were amazing as well!
After the ceremony was complete, we finally were able to photograph these two together. We managed to photograph them all over the English Manor, we used the barn out front and in many of the gorgeous spots behind the Manor. These two were so easy to photograph, i loved every shot we captured!
Once the reception began, it was time for their grand entrances followed by their first dance. The speeches were sweet and hilarious, but my favorite reception moment was when these two sneaked outside with me for a few sunset shots.
Their live band kept the dance floor moving all night! This crowd never left the dance floor and I loved capturing every minute of their reception.
Thank you to Lizzy and Steve for choosing me as your wedding photographer and for allowing me to photograph your beautiful day! xoxoxox
