Stunning Bear Brook Valley Wedding
What a fabulous day! Bear Brook Valley could not be any prettier. The weather was just perfect for an April wedding. It was a beautiful overcast day and the temperature was mid 70’s, perfect for a gorgeous outdoor ceremony by the pretty lake. These two were so ready to be married!
Jen and Steve’s Love Story
Jen and Steve met online. They were both a bit apprehensive about doing such a thing, but they both decided to give it a go! Jen, being new to this whole idea, by mistake sent a little wink icon to Steve’s page. He found that quite funny so he reached back out and the rest is history! They had their first date at Villalobos in Montclair, NJ so when Steve decided to propose, he knew just the place!
Getting Ready at Bear Brook Valley Bridal Suite
This bridal suite is probably the most beautiful one I have ever had the pleasure of photographing. The day started out with Jen and her besties doing their hair and makeup while sipping champagne! Jen was also joined by her mom and Steve’s mom and they had the best celebration. As Jen slipped into her wedding gown created by Stefan Jolle she shared a beautiful moment with her mom. After the finishing touches, Jen and Steve were ready to see each other for the first look!
Sweet First Look
At Bear Brook Valley there are so many gorgeous spots to choose for your first look. It had been a bit rainy the day before so Jen and Steve wanted it to be somewhere beautiful but dry. This beautiful bridge was the perfect location. Steve was beaming as he waited for his future wife! I loved their beautiful expressions when seeing each other for the first time. After a few stolen moments, they were ready for some family portraits and fun bridal portraits!
Bridal Party Fun
Steve and Jen were surrounded by their very best friends! The beautiful pond on the property was so beautiful and Pink Dahlia Floral Design created some magic with the pretty pink and white florals used to adorn the gorgeous arbor that framed many of the photos we took.
Wedding Day Portraits
One of the most fun parts of any wedding day for me is when I get to have my couple all to myself! It is such a special time to make some time where all the noise stops and busyness of the day pauses. We chose the highest point at Bear Brook to do our portraits. The top of the hill overlooks the entire property and it was spectacular!
Bear Brook Valley Wedding Ceremony
After a totally magical day, it was finally time for Jen and Steve Bear Brook Valley’s wedding ceremony! The countryside around the lake was filled excited and joyful family members and friends as they all waited for Jen and Steve to appear! The ceremony was filled with so much emotion and laughter and it was the absolutely perfect way to begin their marriage!
Fun Filled Bear Brook Valley Reception
Following the gorgeous ceremony, it was time for Jen and Steve to celebrate with their family and friends! The Bear Brook Valley reception was filled with soft lights, and beautiful pink and white florals. The night started with speeches and sweet memories shared by their friends and families. The rest of the night was filled with loud music and fabulous dancing by Mystical Entertainment! Steve sure was one to dance the night away!
Jen and Steve, thank you so much for choosing me to capture the joy of your Bear Brook Valley wedding! It was such a blessing to witness your love and I wish you so much happiness together!
