According to Tina Elizabeth Photography, not even a nor’easter could keep this couple’s love from shining bright on their wedding day! Just look how perfect these photos are….bubble umbrellas and all. There’s so many details throughout this wedding that we can’t get enough of, like the indoor ceremony space with lots of natural light and floor-to-ceiling windows, and of course, we have to mention the farmhouse-style tables with those lavish centerpieces filled with cascading greens! And then there’s the living wall in the ballroom, romantic lighting, and incredible mountain views. See all of our favorite images from this New Jersey wedding gallery at Natirar Mansion below.
From Tina Elizabeth Photography…LeeAnne and her bridesmaids all wore fun “We’re getting pizza after this” t-shirts as they got ready in the Mansion. The girls listened to music while getting hair and makeup done and once they were ready, they posed for some fun photos in their getting ready outfits! And they all looked on with beaming smiles as LeeAnne got dressed with help from her maid’s of honor and with her mom holding her hand. Scott and the groomsmen got ready at the nearby Archer Hotel. The men all looked so dapper in black tuxedos and bowties and Scott felt all the butterflies as he anxiously awaited seeing his Bride. They toasted with beer, played a few games of pool and happily walked in the rain to the Mansion so Scott could finally see LeeAnne for their first look.
Their first look was one of my favorite parts of the day! LeeAnne came up behind Scott in the green room of the Mansion and he turned around with an instant jaw drop. He was stunned by her beauty and couldn’t keep his eyes off her. All LeeAnne wanted was to look and feel like a Disney Princess – and she really did! LeeAnne actually worked at Disney World – so there were many nods to Disney in her details and day.
We grabbed an umbrella and were prepared to be in and out but as we walked outside, with the gorgeous overlook behind us, we realized these two were the luckiest – the rain had stopped! They beamed and kissed, Scott twirled his princess and we took full advantage of the portrait time we had outside while we could! They never stopped smiling, even when a few raindrops showed up. Nothing could take their happiness away! Finally, it was time for these two to become husband and wife. They had a traditional Jewish Ceremony, and an unplugged ceremony as well. All of their guests, dressed in their black-tie best, were fully engaged as the Bridal Party walked down the Bride. LeeAnne walked down the aisle with her Dad to the music of “So This is Love” from Cinderella – perfect for our very own princess. They exchanged their personal hand-written vows, exchanged rings and broke the glass – and just like that, they were married! Mazel Tov!
Signature drinks were passed around as guests were welcomed into cocktail hour, complete with hor devours and a mac and cheese bar! Awaiting them in the ballroom was an 11 piece band and tables with the most stunning floral arrangements by Jardiniere Fine Flowers. The living wall of the ballroom was the focal point and the perfect backdrop for a fun photo! LeeAnne and Scott entered their reception & shared the sweetest first dance to Michael Jackson’s “I just can’t stop loving you”, surrounded by their friends and family on the dance floor. And without skipping a beat, they immediately went into a celebratory horah!
After that, the dancing NEVER stopped! Their guests enjoyed dancing and singing along all night long. It was only put on pause when the toasts were made… first by both their parents and then by their bridal party. As the guests continued to enjoy dancing, they were also treated to a candy bar. LeeAnne & Scott were married on the weekend before Halloween so it was their version of letting their guests go trick-or-treating at their wedding! The night ended with the dance floor dancing along to Thriller. LeeAnne & Scott snuck away for a few sweet moments towards the end of the night, posing for a few last portraits on the outside of the mansion. This time, the rain was coming down and the fog was creeping.. the perfect mood for some spooky inspired photos. Even still, their love shone brightly in their smiles, so thrilled to be sharing these special memories as husband and wife.
