Rachael & Matthew’s Bradford Estate Wedding

Last October, I photographed Rachael and Matthew’s beautiful Bradford Estate wedding in Hainesport, New Jersey. These high school sweethearts were true romantics and such a joy to photograph, I am so happy to share this wedding!

I started the day in the upstairs bridal suite with Rachael and her bridesmaids. I absolutely love Bradford Estate’s brand new bridal suite, it is equipped with large windows which allows you to use natural light for hair and makeup as well as photographing all those gorgeous bridal details <3 I especially loved photographing Rachael’s Jay West dress and the reactions to the sweet notes they wrote one another.

Rachael and Matthew were traditional on their wedding day, so did not see each other prior to the ceremony. My second shooter, Josh and I took full advantage of our time with them prior to the ceremony and managed to get tons of shots of these two apart.

Their ceremony was so sweet, officiated by Rev. Jill Dillner, there were tons of laughs, sweet readings and even a hand fasting ceremony. My favorite part of the ceremony was the gorgeous Fall foliage! I absolutely loved all the colors in their ceremony photos.

Once the ceremony was complete, we photographed the bridal party and Rachael and Matt together, finally! These two were so sweet and I loved all the smitten looks they gave one another <3

Their reception was such a fun night! Between sweet and funny speeches and adorable favors made by Rachael herself, their evening was filled with personal gestures. I loved photographing these two and cannot wait to be back at the Bradford Estate later this year!
