It’s safe to say that Emily and Brad are my type of couple. They’re both laid back, they just go with the flow and not afraid to try something different. Well on this day we did just that. Rain was in the forecast for the entire day, something that may worry many brides but not this one. I always tell my couples to let the day come to us and we will document it as we see it. Rain to this wedding was similar to zombies to the Walking Dead series. With so much going on, it was nothing but a back story. I for one don’t mind when it rains, it allows me to think out of the box a bit more. Emily got ready at her parents house then headed to church to complete the task at hand. Brad was all fun and games all day long. Nervous? Nah…not this guy. Their ceremony was beautiful and went off without a hitch. We then headed to Cross Estate Gardens in Basking Ridge, NJ for some wet weather photos! Typically I don’t believe in asking my bridal parties for super cheese-tastic poses, I like to keep it simple as I know taking photos is not what they want to be doing. Well on this day, I came up with an idea on the way to the location as you’ll see below. I’m pretty sure they weren’t big fans of mine at the moment I took this shot, but I loved the way it came out and I hope they did to :). We then took Emily and Brad and headed into the gardens for some romantic and moody photos. After a few minutes we headed back for the reception, and what a wild reception it was. From the emotional parent dances to Brad doing a pretty solid WORM…it was an awesome party. Weddings at the Brooklake Country Club are always beautiful. The staff is amazing and the grounds are gorgeous. At the end of the day, these two crazies were married and thats all that counts! I hope everyone enjoys the photos!
Special thanks to my second photographer for the day, Elizabeth Polo.
