Timeless Summer Wedding at Windows on the Water • Jennifer Larsen Photography

 

We have a really big soft spot for timeless weddings. You know the ones... the photos where you can't really pinpoint what year they were taken in, because everything about that day was beautiful and elegant. It could have been 10 years ago, or 10 months ago, and will still be just as beautiful in another 20 years. This gorgeous summer wedding from Jennifer Larsen is just that. Timeless. Classic. Bright. And so full of love. Emily and Steve were married on a perfect summer day, and everything from her dress down to the flowers were stunning. A perfect example of how classic never goes out of style.  


From Jennifer: Emily and Steve's wedding day was nothing short of magical. With goosebumps, teary eyes, and cheeks sore from smiling, I truly loved every second of photographing their day. Their wedding took place at Windows on the Water at Frogbridge in Southern New Jersey. Here are just a few of my favorite details of the day...Steve wrote his vows to Emily in the form of a letter, like the many he had written to her while on his cross country road trip at the beginning of their relationship. It was so beautifully written and heartfelt; there was certainly not a dry eye in the ceremony. Their wedding bands are engraved with the coordinates of where they met. Emily had a charm of Mother Mary that belonged to her grandmother, that her mom stitched into her dress. She also wore a bracelet that belonged to her grandmother. Her grandfather had saved up for this bracelet as a gift to his wife, held on layaway and paying it off with money from each paycheck. This bracelet was her something blue. Their love is totally infectious, radiating so much joy that you can't help but smiling when you see them together.

Modern Rustic Summer Wedding at The Waterwitch Club • Gilded Lily Events

 

We adore every detail of this summer wedding from Gilded Lily Events, and know you will too! From the stunning backdrop of the Waterwitch Club, to the perfect florals and the most adorable first look we've ever seen, Pat Furey captured it all. 


FROM PAIGE: The Water Witch Club is like your home away from home. It is one of my very favorite venues in New Jersey because it has that homey feel without the stress of hosting your wedding in your own backyard. I love watching guests immediately relax when they enter this 1900s beauty. Couples are able to get married on their lawn overlooking a view of the New York City skyline, can sip cocktails on the perfect porch and then dance on the hardwood floors under bistro lights surrounded by their closest family and friends. The Water Witch Club only hosts approximately 12 weddings a year and with its growing popularity, the exclusivity makes it that much more special.

I love how much character this venue has with its dark wood and antique fixtures. To soften the spaces, we used a palette of blush, mint and white and premium flowers such as peonies, ranunculus, & garden roses. With a late May wedding, they had the pick of the litter when it came to luxurious blooms. . It was the perfect juxtaposition of the masculinity of the space. Janice and James knew that they wanted an unconventional space that felt like them and where their guests could just let loose and enjoy! And enjoy they did - you should have seen the dance moves!

We were so lucky that Pat Furey Photo was there to capture this gorgeous couple. Check out their first look and portraits- they are some of my favorite to date! When planning your day, make sure you pay close attention to your wedding day timeline to dedicate time for these gems- they will be treasured forever!
