We have been so blessed to have such AMAZING weddings this year! The McMunn wedding at the Cranbury Inn is definitely one of them! Since the moment we all met, it felt like we were instant friends. That’s what I really enjoy about Michael + Elle! They are so laid back and just really wanted to make sure they took the whole day in! As they should. Of course in mid March, in New Jersey, you never know how the weather will be, but the weather that day was amazing…..COLD but amazing!! They even had a cute little trolley taking the bridal party and a few family members around for each photo location! It was perfect.
This wedding was a tad different from my previous weddings. Mainly because the cocktail hour was before the wedding ceremony, but trust me NO ONE was complaining. But the thing I loved most about the cocktail hour was Elle’s second dress. Her gorgeous dress actually belonged to her grandmother. And I’m going to try to write this without crying because it’s just too sweet.
One day Elle was trying on her grandmother’s dresses and noticed this one dress just had something special about it. She instantly fell in love with the color and all the pretty beading. She knew that the dress would be a PERFECT way to represent and remember her grandmother (who she adored) on her special day. So she got the dress altered and decided to wear it during the cocktail hour!! However, she decided to keep a secret from her mother and revealed it right before it began! Oh my goodness it was adorable! Let’s just say I definitely shed a few tears. I know Elle’s grandmother was looking down on them and smiling SO big during that moment.
Michael + Elle: I wish you both nothing but happiness and love for years to come. I had a great time capturing these memories and it brings me great joy knowing I’ll have you both as my friends for life now! Love you both a TON! Thank you again for everything.
In honor of this wedding being on St. Patrick’s Day, I leave you all with this Irish blessing…
