Hamilton Manor Wedding Kelsey and Ryan

Weddings

I am so excited to be sharing Kelsey and Ryan’s gorgeous Hamilton Manor wedding day with you today! I met Kelsey and Ryan the very week of their wedding when their photographer (unfortunately!) got sick before their wedding day. Thankfully, our team was able to step in and photograph their beautiful wedding day. Kelsey and Ryan are so sweet, and I’m thrilled we had the chance to get to know them and photograph such a special day for them!

Hamilton Manor Wedding

Hamilton Manor was a brand new venue for me in New Jersey, so I was extra excited to head to Kelsey and Ryan’s wedding and I loved this new-to-me venue. Our happy couple planned for a first look, so we had them meet outside the venue building in the garden – near the gazebo so we could go right into portraits there after. One of my favorite things about their wedding day is the way Ryan looks at Kelsey. You can just see the love and adoration for her – and she had the same look for him! Honestly, they are so happy to be married. It was beautiful to see!!

Their ceremony site at Hamilton Manor is gorgeous, with a stone fireplace and wood. Kelsey and Ryan used a gorgeous centerpiece made of wood as their altar, too. Everything looked beautiful all together and was complemented by lovely calligraphy on acrylic details by The Jess Press! Afterwards, it was time for their reception and this group was definitely ready to party. Kelsey and Ryan surprised their guests with a dramatic foggy first dance – which made them look like they were floating in the clouds! The dance floor was packed all night, with their friends and family celebrating. Some of Kelsey’s family came from Guatemala for the wedding, which was also super special to them and you could clearly feel the importance of family and of spending this time together celebrating Kelsey and Ryan’s love. Needless to say, they were definitely a dancing crowd!!

Kelsey and Ryan, Congratulations! Thank you for trusting me to document your stunning wedding day; enjoy this recap!
