Last month, I photographed Suzanne and Jason’s gorgeous wedding at Clarks Landing Yacht Club in Delran, New Jersey. I already had the pleasure of photographing their engagement session at Rutgers Gardens last spring, and had high hopes that their wedding day would be just as full of love and fun. Jason and Suzanne didn’t disappoint! They were so easy to be around and their huge smiles were contagious. Scroll through these photos and I promise you’ll be grinning by the end, too.
The day started off calmly. Suzanne was in the middle of hair and makeup, so I began photographing all her details. I loved her vintage inspired lacy dress from BHLDN, and her Kate Spade shoes were perfectly pretty! Her look was completed by a gorgeous gold bracelet full of family significance.
In addition to the bride’s beauty and style, Clarks Landing provided its own array of unique, vintage touches, which gave the photos a natural backdrop. Some of my favorite details were the bureau in the bridal suite and the paintings on their walls. So lovely!
After bridal prep, I photographed both Jason and Suzanne individually and with their family’s since they did not want to see each other prior to the ceremony. After spending time with the girls, it was nice meeting Jason’s groomsmen, who were all very sweet! They even gifted Jason and Suzanne a honeymoon, which I thought was one of the most touching things I have witnessed while a photographing a wedding. I had a hard time keeping my eyes dry behind my camera for that moment!
Due to rain, the ceremony was moved inside, but Jason and Suzanne were so happy and in love that the last minute switch didn’t seem to bother them one bit. Their ceremony was short and sweet and followed immediately by the reception. We used every inch of Clarks Landing for photos and we even braved the rain for a little bit! We had faith the rain would eventually stop and eventually, it did.
The reception was nonstop once all the courses were served. Jason and Suzanne had a blast dancing with their friends and family – these two truly enjoyed every minute of their party. I had a great time capturing their love on the dance floor.
One of my favorite moments of the night was the GORGEOUS sunset! The colorful sky was such a stunning backdrop in the distance for their photos, I even had the opportunity to get Jason and Suzanne outside for a few more shots before we lost natural light all together.
Congratulations to Mr. and Mrs. Sadowski! Thank you SO much for inviting me to photograph your day! <3
