Kicking off this rainy week with a little sunshine and a whole lot of joy: Amanda + Dan's gorgeous fall wedding at Eagle Manor in Fairfield, New Jersey! When we first saw this wedding from the adorable duo of Kate + Jill Photography, we instantly fell in love with the rich, warm colors, the stunning burgundy bridesmaid dresses and of course, the #happiestbrideever, Amanda! The incredible floral design and lush tablescapes were the perfect compliment to the already-stunning grounds of Eagle Manor, and that tented receptions space makes us wish we could redo our own fall wedding outdoors! Fall brides + grooms, get ready to find lots of inspiration for your own day!
Amanda and Dan met at a mutual friend's birthday party and quickly fell for each other over their mutual love for adventures and good music, along with a few mutual dislikes!
They planned their wedding based off a color scheme of burgundy, blush and mixed metal tones with lots of greenery. They really wanted the emphasis on a romantic feeling, which lots of candles, greenery, and florals helped create.
They found their wedding venue randomly online and instantly fell in love with the property because of the views and the homey & historic feel of the estate house. Another big reason they chose the property is that it’s located on a river. Amanda grew up on the water where she and Dan currently live. It felt like home when they saw the venue for the first time.
Amanda chose two gowns for her big day. One that was flowy and feminine. It had gorgeous beading in the back and cream lace details on the bodice. She said "I knew I wanted something “different” and the pink tulle underlay had me sold. I also think it fits the location perfectly- not too formal, but very pretty." For her second dress, she chose a simple dress with the most perfect floral crown that proved easier to dance in during her dancing filled reception.
