addie + sean 8.22.09

the adorable addie & sean were married on saturday at the beautiful rutgers gardens and had their reception at the very modern heldrich hotel in new brunswick! the weather was not looking promising for an outdoor ceremony during prep, it was raining, hailing, i think i even saw some cats and dogs outside the hotel window.. hurricane bill had hit and it was bad! then by the grace of addie and sean's love the skies parted and the rain stopped! yay! it was an absolutely fabulous ceremony and the rain held out for some photos of the newly married couple in the gardens and in some awesome lime green chairs! this wedding was all about details, i expected nothing less knowing the couple are artists and have an amazing shop on etsy called drink and dream - check it out! there were canvas welcome bags with the i love nj logo, hand embroidered {by addie} handkerchiefs for her mom and grandfather, a personalized cake topper of the couple and their boston terrier bonnie, delicious shortbread cookies, really fun signage, vintage inspired pendants hanging around the ceremony, and my favorite a gallery style of photos on the wall at the reception featuring family weddings pics! the list goes on and on, but these were my faves! addie wore a glamorous + vintage inspired satin dress with, very cool round metallic shoes, lots of sparkly jewelry and sean wore a toffee and orange pinstriped suit with suspenders {loved, loved their overall vintage vibe!} with performances by sean's dad and aunt as well as a groomsman it was obvious this group was very musical. the music was a great mix of 50's as well as some beloved 80's classics and everyone danced all night! it was such a fun and unique group of people and i even got to see a former couple of mine! i loved shooting this wedding and am so thankful to have been asked to be a part of it! i wish addie + sean lots of love!
