Intimate Spring Wedding at Ninety Acres • Rachel Watkinson Photography


There's something so sweet and sincere about intimate weddings, and this gorgeous spring wedding from Rachel Watkinson is certainly no exception. Held at one of the prettiest venues in New Jersey, Jamie and Mark's April wedding was full of incredibly beautiful red floral arrangements (Jamie's favorite color!), warm textures and nods to their adorable Boston Terrier, Roxy! Jaime looked stunning in her BHLDN and gown, and even Roxy had her own collar and pearl leash! Ninety Acres in Peapack, NJ was the perfect backdrop for this joyful day, filled with happy tears and a whole 'lotta love. 

Jamie and Mark connected quickly. They bonded over their love for adventure, spending time with friends, Jamie’s adorable Boston terrier, Roxy, the Rutgers Scarlet Knights football team, and even the color red!

They care so deeply for one another and are so thrilled to be on this new adventure of marriage and building their lives together. And, boy do they love to laugh! Mark makes Jamie laugh a lot with his witty humor at every chance he can find.

They cherish their families and wanted to keep their wedding as small and intimate as possible, only inviting immediate family to a ceremony, officiated by Mark’s brother, and followed by a private dinner held at Ninety Acres in Peapack New Jersey.

It was a crisp, April day as Jamie got ready at her parents house. This was the house where she grew up, and getting ready for her wedding day in her childhood room was a very special experience.

Jamie looked classy and elegant in her BHLDN wedding dress. Roxy, their dog, was definitely at the top of the list of who they wanted to have captured on their wedding day, and she was adorned with her own special collar and pearl leash. Jamie had a cut-out of a Boston Terrier for her wedding invitations and table place cards to represent the importance of Roxy in their lives. Red, being the couple’s favorite color, was used in all the floral arrangements, and in Jamie’s iconic lipstick and nail polish. Mark, the handsome groom, saw his bride for the first time as she was escorted down the aisle by her Father. The couple was all smiles and many happy tears were shed as they exchanged their vows.

They honeymooned on an epic adventure to New Zealand and Australia. Mark and Jamie are awesome, fun to be around and so, so sweet. I’m very honored to have been included in such an intimate and important day in their lives.
