I had the honor of getting to capture my husband's cousin's wedding - in New Jersey! I have never been to that side of the country before, and it was so neat to experience it all! Taylor and Lewis had a stunning intimate wedding at Cupsaw Lake Clubhouse in Ringwood, New Jersey. We took the most gorgeous fall bridals ever - even though it was in December. Crazy right? It hadn't quite snowed yet so we got the gorgeous autumn colors and fallen leaves in the forest - perfect for their first look and bridals!
Let's talk about some of their gorgeous details!
Neutral Toned Wedding Bouquet
Can we talk about how simple yet stunning this bouquet is?! This neutral toned wedding bouquet matched the scenery around their venue so perfectly! The little pops of delicate green leaves helped make this bouquet look so whimsical and soft - matching the overall theme of their intimate wedding to a T!
Taylor's Classic and Elegant Wedding Gown
You can never go wrong with wearing a classic wedding gown. This gown fit Taylor's form so beautifully, and this gown didn't have any lace, sparkle, or tulle. Less can definitely be more, and it was for sure in this case! Classic wedding gowns are such a vibe, I just love how the side sleeves fold over the top of the gown, creating a beautiful neckline.

Lewis' Brown Wedding Suit
I absolutely love it when grooms wear a non-traditional wedding suit color. His suit matched the scenery so well! Compared to a black or a dark blue suit, it would have totally changed how these photos look. Choosing outfits that harmonize or match the theme with your location/venue make the final gallery of photos look super cohesive!
First Look in a Fall Forest
You never would have guessed that these photos were taken behind a basketball court and in between houses, right? That's what I love about these, is that it looks like we are deep in the woods near a body of water, but really it's just outside the venue in a cluster of trees. But in reality it looks like they are in the middle of an enchanted fall forest!
