Christine & Mark 9.28.19
Christine and Mark’s Fall wedding at The Mill Lakeside Manor was such an elegant affair. We’re not lying when we say they had the absolute perfect day. We started off our morning with Mark and his groomsmen getting ready in Asbury Park and Christine and her bridesmaids getting ready at the Courtyard Marriott in Tinton Falls. Our bride’s mother and sister helped her into her beautiful lace gown and veil. We spent some time getting portraits of Christine and then headed to Spring Lake for our first look.
Mark was calmly waiting for his bride and both of them were so happy to see each other. They shared some private time together and we were able to snag the most romantic shots of them. Then we brought out our bridal party. The girls’ dresses and flowers coordinated so well with the lovely fall colors in the background. We had a load of fun with our bridal party and then headed to Spring Lake theater for a few more shots of our bride and groom.
Then we headed to The Mill for our ceremony and reception. The newly renovated building and outdoor areas of The Mill are absolutely gorgeous. The landscaping and flowers made for a beautiful backdrop to a very sweet wedding ceremony. Our bride and groom said their “I do’s” and everyone cheered. We stopped at the dock and then the actual Mill for some quick shots before going inside for cocktail hour and the reception.
Every detail from the signs to the seating chart to the table settings was so unique to Mark and Christine’s story. The toasts were heartfelt and spoke of two families from across the world coming together to celebrate two very special people. The Hank Lane band was phenomenal and kept everybody dancing and singing all night! Both Christine and Mark are exceptional dancers and it was so great to watch them dance together as husband and wife. Weddings can be challenging at times, but we have to say that this was one of the easiest, most fun weddings we’ve shot in a very long time. Our bride and groom’s easy-going personalities and sweet demeanor made it an absolute pleasure and honor to be a part of their day. We wish Christine and Mark a lifetime of happiness together.
