Mansion at Mountain Lakes Wedding, NJ | Cesare & Kyle

Their Wedding Day | Mansion at Mountain Lakes Wedding

Cesare & Kyles Mansion at Mountain Lakes wedding was absolutely incredible! We were able to dodge the rain for all of our portraits, (with the benefit of some beautiful soft overcast light in between!), and even got a little bit of golden hour glow after the ceremony! Every single detail for Cesare & Kyle’s day was beautiful and thoughtful. I loved how Cesare had created so many meaningful ways to honor her mom’s memory throughout the day – from her beautiful pearl hair piece, memory table on display at cocktail hour, down to incorporating pieces of her mom’s wedding dress in several details! Cesare had a for getting ready that was made from her mom’s dress, as well as patches sewn into her gown and her dad’s tie! It was so special and thoughtful and so meaningful. I also loved that Cesare’s grandmother was the flower girl at her ceremony. She had so much fun with her role, and had all the guests smiling from ear to ear!

It’s always so much fun to get to see my past couples at a wedding! One of Kyle’s groomsman, Joe was a past groom of mine from a few years ago! It was so much fun seeing Mel & Joe again (and of course had to take a photo with all five of us at the end of the night!) 🙂

I have so many favorite photos from this day, I can’t wait to share them all! But first – their love story!

Their Love Story

When I asked Cesare & Kyle to share with me one thing they love about each other, Cesare said, “Patience for sure!!! I worry ALOT and Kyle is so patient with me! I admire his patience with everything! He is the best part of me!” Kyle said, “Her smile and her very big heart! She is an incredible teacher and puts everyone before herself!”

How They Met

Cesare & Kyle first met in Bloomsburg, PA in summer 2012. They were neighbors during their summer session of college, and in 2015 started dating. Cesare told me, “I was a lot more interested in Kyle than he was in me at first. We spent a lot of time hanging together but never making it official so when it became official it was like the talk of our small town college town! LOL 🙂 I am from Bucks County, PA and Kyle is from here in Central Jersey and we did long distance for 3 years after we graduated. Then 2 years ago we moved in together and now rent a house together! This summer we got our first dog together- her name is Saylor, she’s a mini-goldendoodle!”

The Proposal

Kyle proposed 2 days after Christmas. Cesare told me, “We were taking our dog for a walk at the Lighthouse in LBI, it is one of the first places Kyle took me when I started coming down to his house 7 years ago- I love it because that’s where the ocean meets the bay.” The lighthouse is a special spot for these two, and we even took their engagement photos there!

To the Newlyweds

Cesare & Kyle, you two are such a light and it was an absolute honor to capture your beautiful wedding day! I’m so excited for you two and all that lies ahead in the next chapter of your journey! Cheers to the newlyweds!!! Sending you both the biggest hug!! xoxo
