Maureen + Seth are married! Congrats to these two, who were a photographer’s dream to work with. They are such a sweet couple, and their whole day from start to finish was so much fun!
These two have traveled the world together! Maureen was in the Peace Corps (how amazing is that?!) and spent several years in Botswana with limited cell service, which as you can imagine was extremely difficult for a long distance relationship. I loved how they incorporated the theme of travel into their wedding. The place cards were paper airplanes with guests name on them, they had locally sourced honey as favors, and each table was themed with a place that they had traveled together – complete with photos of them at each location!
Their wedding was at Bayonet Farm, which is a historic, 200 year old farm. On the property was a beautiful barn where the girls got ready in the morning. There were open fields and romantic paths, making it a gorgeous place for portraits.
Seth actually grew up in Holmdel, which was down the street from their venue! So the guys got ready at his childhood home, which was so special.
They had their first look on a path between two open fields, and it made for such romantic and sweet photos of them! I love how the open space really focuses your attention on just the two of them, and this special moment.
After the first look, it was time for some fun portraits with just the two of them and of course the bridal party! We had a blast exploring the farm and taking a combination of silly, candid, and formal portraits.
This bridal party was so. much. fun. 🙂
As we wandered through the forest, we found this little spot with the sun shining through! So of course we had to do a little twirl!
Finally it was time for the ceremony – the moment we all were waiting for! The ceremony was set up in a wide open field, lined with beautiful florals along the aisle. The stunning archway was perfect.
There wasn’t a dry eye during the ceremony – it was so moving and sweet!
CONGRATS you guys!!
The reception was split into two areas, which was so unique! They had a large, tented area where dinner was served, and then the barn directly next to it was for the dancing and partying!
We stole the two of them away for 15 minutes to grab some gorgeous sunset photos. The sky was stunning, and it was great to see them have a short moment away from the hustle and bustle and just enjoy some quiet time together!
The barn was lined with lights, and it was a great place to dance the night away! We had a blast celebrating with them, and wish them all the happiness in the world!
