Jen & Brett | Waterloo Village Winter Wedding, Stanhope, NJ

If there is anyone I’m willing to freeze my fingers and toes off for, it’s Jen and Brett on their incredible wedding day at Waterloo Village! I’m so glad I got to finish off my amazing 2017 wedding year (because there’s just no such thing as “wedding season” anymore!) with a snowy winter wedding. These two troopers braved the cold for all of the winter wonderland portraits I could ask for! Oh, and one of the best parts… they brought their pup, Maddie, for some photos! Can I get a huge ‘YES, PLEASE’ for bringing your pets to the most special day of your life?! This venue shines at any time of the year, but seeing it in the winter brought an entirely new magic to it; I have so much fun shooting here!

We know I’m all about those heirloom details, so I was over-the-moon when I saw Jen wearing her grandmother’s mink stoll. She also honored her grandmother by attaching her broaches and handkerchief to her bouquet! Brett wowed me with his sentimental engagement ring that he had made using stones from both his grandmothers jewelry. These two just seem to get it! 😉

These outdoorsy nature lovers wanted their wedding day to be atypical from their normal everyday life. When they saw Waterloo Village, they knew it was the right fit for what they were hoping for. With winter being their favorite season because of the holidays, they loved the warmth of the stone and fireplace surrounded by greenery and the woods. 

I am overjoyed to share this wedding with you, so cozy up with some coffee and a blanket and fall in love with this magical day. Jen and Brett, you two are the perfect compliment to one another; it shows in everything you do. Thank you for inviting me to document this milestone, and for braving the cold for the perfect shots! Wishing you two a lifetime of love, happiness and endless puppy snuggles with your sweet little Maddie!
