Fall Stone House Wedding | Brittany & Mackenzie

Their Wedding Day: Fall Stone House Wedding

Brittany & Mackenzie’s Fall Stone House wedding was one for the books! I loved every little unique and thoughtful touch, like the subtle nods to Brittany’s love of Harry Potter, and Mack’s passion for football & the Cowboys! It’s the little things like that, that make a wedding day feel truly special and unique!

When Brittany first reached out to me, I asked about her vision for the day! She told me, “For our wedding, I was thinking of neutral and earthy tones (white, beige, taupe, golds, and maybe a pop of a darker color such as wine for the fall). I love lots of greenery, florals, pampas grass, etc. For centerpieces, I like the idea of having a chiffon table runner, a long piece of eucalyptus and/or other greenery with accent flowers and the warm glow of candles – I feel like that creates a romantic, whimsical and simplistic vibe. I think I’d like the bridal party in different shades of beige, ultimately I want my bridal party to be comfortable in whatever they’re wearing!” I’d say the vision came together flawlessly!!

Not only was every detail beautifully curated, but their day was SO MUCH FUN! The reception dance floor was packed all night long! With an incredible DJ, sparklers, a football, and even some crowd surfing, there wasn’t a single dull moment! I can’t wait to share so many favorite photos from this day. But first, their love story!! 🙂

Their Love Story

I asked Brittany & Mackenzie to share with me one thing they love about each other. They gave the most thoughtful answers. Brittany said, “It’s hard just to name one thing but I truly love and am so appreciative of how supportive Mack is of me. I’ve put him through the ringer going through nursing school and having a job that is super stressful and emotional. He always knows exactly what to say to me to keep me pushing through the hardships and knows just how to cheer me up after a bad day. He also always keeps me laughing. I don’t think I could have made it this far without him! There is no one I’d trust more to share my life and experiences with.”

Mackenzie said, “One thing I love about Brittany is the way she wants to help and care for everyone. I remember one time we went to a Knicks game and she gave a man in need asking for assistance $20 from her pocket without hesitation, in a situation where most people would ignore him. She always finds it in her heart to care for complete strangers, tips extra big at restaurants, etc. She is definitely a nurse for a reason, because it takes a special kind of person to give unconditional care to people every day. And of course the way she cares for me, always asking how my day was, how I’m feeling, and making sure I’m okay. She always puts everyone else before her!”

How They Met

Brittany & Mackenzie met on Brittany’s first night of college at Rowan through a mutual friend she went to high school with. Brittany said, “My friend was his neighbor, and invited myself and my friends over to hangout. Mackenzie was in his second year of college. I remember spending most of the night talking to him and getting to know him! They took us walking to explore campus, and Mackenzie gave me his number before we parted ways.”

“I was actually pretty shy, so for the first week or two of knowing each other I was too nervous to actually go on a date with him so I kept putting it off! Eventually I caved and we went on our first date and things just fell into place. We spent many nights getting to know each other and falling in love. We dated until the fall, and eventually he asked me to be his girlfriend by taking me on a super special date to the ice skating rink our college put up every winter (even though he hated ice skating, he knew how much I loved it!).”

The Proposal

You’ve got to hear how Mackenzie popped the question! He did an amazing job planning the perfect surprise for Brittany! Brittany tells the story best. She said, “I had no idea our proposal was going to happen the day it did, and I’m grateful because I love surprises! Although I am also super nosy when it comes to surprises so Mackenzie had his work cut out for him. He has two brothers with significant others. Every year we try to do something together as the 6 of us – and this year we booked a scavenger hunt in Hoboken. His brother’s fiancé arranged the whole thing, or so I thought!”

“The day of, we completed the scavenger hunt – it was actually pretty cool and it took us on a walking tour of Hoboken. At the end, Mackenzie’s brother’s fiancé read aloud a final clue of the scavenger hunt, which Mackenzie wrote the week before we went. The final clue led us to one of the piers, where we took a picture together by the water as the final task. I was smiling for the picture when I heard him say my name – and that’s when it happened! Mackenzie told me he spent the entire scavenger hunt rehearsing what he was going to say to me, and then said he forgot everything in the moment! It was amazing, regardless. And we had beautiful weather that day, too!”
