Last week, I photographed my last wedding of 2018, Gina and Desi’s Park Chateau wedding! This was my first wedding at the breathtaking Park Chateau and I already cannot wait for my next one (Tiffany & Brian in 2 months!). Park Chateau is in my opinion the most stunning wedding venue in all of New Jersey and I cannot wait to photograph here many more times in the future!
When I walked into the bridal suite, I was immediately in awe of the gorgeous light. The Bridal Suite at Park Chateau is absolutely to die for, the light was beautiful plus a gorgeous salon area for hair and makeup. Michelle Elise Artistry was busy getting all the girls ready and her team did a beautiful job! Once hair and makeup was complete, Gina dressed in front of the floor to ceiling windows, I loved watching her excitedly get into her dress while her maids of honor helped button her in. Her Essense of Australia gown with all over lace detail and beautiful long sleeves were perfect for this Park Chateau winter wedding.
After Gina and Desi were ready, it was time for the sweet first look in the garden, the excitement on Gina’s face was exactly why I love it when my couples do first looks! After that we walked all over the grounds finding the best spots for photos, even in winter the Chateau was stunning. Their ceremony was short and sweet and in the chapel. After the ceremony was complete and these two were married, it was time for the party! I had so much photographing this fun crowd on the dance floor, but my favorite part of the reception was definitely when Gina and Desi sneaked out of their Park Chateau wedding reception for a romantic night photo. The winter lights at Park Chateau was the perfect way to end my night with Gina and Desi!
Congratulations to Gina and Desi, I hope you enjoy your honeymoon! <3
