One of the best decisions that Jay and I made during our engagement was hiring a wedding planner. We knew we’d need someone to help us plan and coordinate many aspects of our wedding day and we’re so glad we trusted her because she handled all the logistics of our wedding day perfectly. From helping us […]


Eeeek! Today is a good day, friends! The Brookmill Farm wedding editorial that we shot last year in Lambertville is featured on the blog over at Contemporary Weddings Magazine! This shoot was such a fun project to work on because I got to work with all my favorite vendors and it turned out absolutely stunning! […]


One of our goals for this little online space of ours is for it to be a resource for our couples. Through the years I’ve compiled a pretty extensive list of blogs that were helpful to me during our own wedding planning, but also blogs that continuously publish helpful wedding planning tips, ideas, and inspiration. Today […]


In true NYC fashion, Allison and Kevin met online and had their first date at a restaurant in the West Village. They met for a drink at the bar, and then decided to stay for dinner. As they say, the rest is history and they were engaged this past August! I had the pleasure of […]

Between figuring out a budget and searching for the perfect venue and photographer, a bride and groom definitely have their work cut out for […]


All this talk about snow coming this weekend has me dreaming of warmer days so I figured it was the perfect time to share Lauren and Josh’s engagement session from last spring. Plus I just finished working on their timeline for their wedding day this coming May! These two are getting married at St. Anne’s […]


Congratulations to Kate and Gabe! Their wedding was featured this week on the Modern Weddings blog! Loved this classic Jersey Shore wedding from last spring! I remember getting so lucky on this wedding day: sun and temps in the mid 70’s in April. So perfect! Hoping for lots of beautiful days like this one in […]


You’re engaged! Congratulations! This is such an amazing time in your life! I remember like it was yesterday when Jay proposed. After my initial state of shock and “deer-in-headlights” look as my husband lovingly calls it, all I wanted to do was announce our engagement to the world and start the wedding planning!

Meet Jessica and Kyle! I think we had to reschedule their engagement session three times due to weather and an unexpected injury that Kyle had to nurse! Luckily, everything fell into place earlier this month when I met up with them at Barclay’s Tree Farm. These two were engaged during Christmas time last year so […]
