Stephanie and Zach were married at Bryn Du Mansion in Granville on a perfect hot and sunny summer day. This mansion is a large complex that holds not only the mansion, but a barn, polo fields (yes, like real Polo with horses and stuff), gardens and a reception venue. The inside of the mansion, as you will see, had Rembrandt-worthy lighting. As I looked back on my edited images, I swear some of them could be paintings with the rich colors, selective illumination on the faces, and warm architectural accents…. all things I had nothing to do with, but used to my advantage.
Stephanie’s dress was an absolute dream. The form-fitting gown gently flowed from her as she walked. Her and Zach were married in the gardens on the side of the mansion. It was such a special location. The procession of the wedding party was a little bit of a walk, as they came from the main mansion, across the lawn, down and around to the gardens. The walk made the whole procession more special and definitely upped the anticipation for the bride’s arrival, even though they did a first look before the ceremony. The entire ceremony there were nothing but ear-to-ear smiles from both the Stephanie and Zach. Immediately following the ceremony, the bridal party cheersed the happy couple! Speaking of bridal parties, this might have been my biggest to date-16! That’s what happens when you have so many good people in your life.
The reception building had a stunning head table that was accented with small lights, succulent table favors, and an illuminated ‘LOVE’ sign. Other tables also had illuminated lanterns with accents of baby’s breath. Our Cupcakery provided a large tower of cupcakes that was topped with a small cake for cutting and adorned with fresh blooming carnations and baby’s breath.
Steph and Zach, thank you so much for having me with you on this most amazing day. It has been such an honor to get to know you over the past year. Love always, Jess
