The first of our triple weekend had me starting on my home turf. The Nassau Inn in Princeton, NJ. I really love this hotel. So many great spots to shoot and the staff is so laid back. I can pretty much go where ever and not get reprimanded by any one. Very cool when looking for obscure places to shoot. Alissa & Ken chose to do all their pics before their ceremony so they could enjoy their cocktail hour. And with a spread laid out by Main Street, one of the best caterers around, that was a great idea. The reception took place at Fernbrook Bed & Breakfast. A great spot tucked away from all the craziness of Jersey. You really feel like your in Vermont or a little country spot. The rocking reception was led by the sounds of The Don Eaton Orchestra. The dance floor was packed all night!! Alissa's beautiful flowers were made by Petal Pushers. Also want to thank Mary at Mary Harris Events. She & her staff are always great to work with and make the day run perfectly. And finally I really want to thank Alissa & Ken for putting up with my ideas and letting me do my thing. I knew they were a little nervous in front of the camera but they went along with it all and the photos rock!! Thanks guys!!
This is actually a copy of an original Norman Rockwell painting hanging in the Nassau Inn.
Now this is teamwork. All of Alissa's bridesmaids helping get ready for the day.
Love this shot.
Alissa looked beautiful as you can see in the next 2 shots.
Ken rockin' his shot as well.
The cute flowergirl.
Some of the awesome details. The space needle is there because that's where Alissa & Ken are from. They also included some amazing chocolate from Seattle as well. Great when that much thought goes into things.
The first dance.
Just a few of the moments from the evening.
Beautiful photo in beautiful light.
Def. my fav of the day.
