BEST OF WEDDINGS 2017
A YEAR IN REVIEW
This past year of 2017 was a special year for sure in the Ryan household! We had two beautiful weddings of our own!
Our daughter Kaitlin, married the love of her life in North Carolina and our son Jeffrey, married his college sweetheart in July. It was two wedding in seven months and that is alot! We had a pretty light year of weddings and we are so grateful for that!
The weddings we were blessed to capture were incredible! The relationships that we developed were so special and we had the best time shooting these weddings! It was so hard to choose my favorites from each one! I guess I chose alot, but I think they all are worth the title "Best of Weddings 2017".
We cannot be more happy doing what we love to do. I have to think each and every time we capture a wedding what those images will mean not only to the couple and their family, but for future generations! We are able to have the honor of documenting history! My favorite part is when we get the wedding album complete and I think "wow, someday their grandchildren will be looking through this album".
We are looking forward to 2018 and this year we have quite alot of weddings already! We could not be happier! We want to wish you all the very Happiest New Year filled with beauty, wonder and health!
This gorgeous styled shoot that I had the pleasure of participating in was so beautiful and the snow just happened! It was magical to say the least! All of the amazing artists that came together and made this happen I cannot thank you all enough!
When I got a call from Kristen Rockhill asking if I would like to photograph one of her styled shoots I was pretty excited! Her company detailsofido is absolutely beautiful and her style with tablescapes and floral arrangements well, let's just say it is special!!
Kevin and Nicki wanted a beautiful rustic romantic venue and when they found out that Bear Brook Valley was soon opening they could not wait to see it! The minute upon arriving they knew that this was their place!
Jessica and Adam love nature! When it came time to choose their location, they knew that it would have to be at Bamboo Brook Arboretum. It was such a beautiful place and they had their first dance right beside the beautiful pond located in the center of the park!
Joe and Karen had raised three children each as single parents. When they met they became best friends until they realized it was much more! This wedding was so special to me! Joe lives next door to Jeff and I and could not be happier to see he and Karen find each other to spend forever together! Their children were their bridal party and it was so much fun!
Anthony was working for Tara's father's company when he met her! He knew that she was the one he wanted to marry and now he had to convince Tara of the same thing! He soon won her over and they decided on the Frelinghuysen Arboretum for their beautiful ceremony followed by a reception at the Bernards Inn.
Claire and Keith dated briefly in 8th grade. After four weeks Keith broke Claire's heart. They remained friends and then after college they met at a party while they both were with other dates, but they decided why not try dating again! Well, this time it was forever! They wanted a wedding set on a lake and when they found the Rock Island Lake Club it could not have been more perfect! The beautiful florals were designed by Celia Flowers!
This beautiful Texas wedding is very close to my heart! My beautiful niece Katie found the love of her life! Trey and Katie met several years ago when Katie was only 21! Trey was immediately attracted to her but also knew she needed to get the 21 out of her system. 10 years later they met again and this time they knew it was for good! It was such an honor to capture this beautiful couple's wedding day!
