Pleasantdale Wedding Photography in West Orange, NJ
It’s here! Our last wedding of the 2018 wedding season and it’s a beauty! I knew it would be because we had the best couple at one of our favorite venues! I’m so excited to share this blog post with you. I feel like it’s the grand finale of our year and it’s got a touch of holiday cheer so it’s perfect to be sharing on this very last weekend before Christmas!
You may remember Emily and Frank from their sunrise engagement session in Central Park that I blogged just last month. These two have known each other since high school, have been dating since college, and after eight years they have tied the knot! They planned a classic, traditional wedding during the holiday season at the beautiful Pleasantdale Chateau and it came together so wonderfully. Emily and Frank started their day at the chateau where they got ready with family and friends. They shared a sweet first look indoors followed by a portrait session outdoors on the beautiful venue grounds. It had rained earlier that day but we managed to find some dry spots so that we could still get photos of our couple and their bridal party outside before leaving for their ceremony.
When it came time to say their “I Do’s”, we headed to Immaculate Conception Church in Montclair and we discovered one of the prettiest churches we’ve ever shot at! Wait until you see it – it had such a WOW factor! The ceremony was followed by a lively reception and these two enjoyed lots of dancing with their friends and family thanks to the amazing  Hank Lane Music. This wedding was the perfect way for us to end our season and it serves as such a great reminder of how fortunate we are to get to document the most amazing couples on their beautiful wedding days. I’ll be doing a recap of our year soon but for now, enjoy this summary of Emily and Frank’s wedding day!
Congratulations, Emily and Frank! I hope you two are having the time of your lives in Hawaii! Maui and Oahu sound so dreamy – enjoy relaxing on the beach, whale watching, and taking that helicopter tour you were looking forward to!
