bree + ryan 8.1.09

you may recognize bree and ryan from their e-shoot where they took "the plunge" literally! jumping into the icy atlantic for their save the dates! ever since then i have been looking forward to this amazing couples' wedding! they were married at a beautiful church in trenton {where a bag piper serenaded their exit} and had their reception at south gate in freehold! the colors were pale pink, mauve with accents of black, which made for a very elegant + classic look! after the ceremony we headed to downtown freehold via party bus for some shots around town, stopping at city hall, the public library and a diner! {it was hot but the bridal party were real troopers} the reception had an amazing cocktail hour filled with more food than i've ever seen! tables were lit with pink lighting {one of the many reasons to hire a wedding planner- perfect lighting} named with photos of the couple in different places like kayaking in san diego, a very cute idea! a perfectly choreographed first dance, a slideshow playing in the background during the parent dances, heartfelt toasts and bree's dad singing a little frank sinatra to his daughter all made this wedding exceptionally fun to shoot! bree an eagles cheerleader took to the dance floor with her fellow cheerleaders and performed the eagles fight song, which had the room laughing and cheering on! the couple danced all night and so did everyone else, it was so much fun to shoot this beautiful + sweet couple's wedding and i'm so happy to have shared all these moments with them! congrats b+r.. lots of love and luck!
