Park Chateau Winter Wedding, East Brunswick, NJ | Paige & Ryan

Their Wedding Day:
Park Chateau Estate

I seriously LOVE photographing weddings at Park Chateau. This venue is unreal, and is a perfect scenic back drop any time of year, in any weather, no matter what! Paige & Ryan’s wedding day was such an incredible day from start to finish! I loved every beautifully curated detail…from the breathtaking lace train on Paige’s dress, to the pizza food truck at the end of the night, and the thoughtful sentimental pieces – like the clutch Paige carried that was made from her mom’s wedding dress!!! How incredible is that? Paige & Ryan are a perfect match for each other, and I’m so honored I got to be a part of their wedding day, and capture their story.

Their Love Story

Paige & Ryan first met on the dating app, Bumble! Paige was taking a continuing education course for work and staying with a friend that happened to live in the same town as Ryan! Ryan lived about 1.5 hours from Paige at the time, so without that course, these two never would have connected! I’d say it was meant to be. 🙂

For their first date, they met for lunch at noon, which turned into late afternoon drinks at the bar. While at the bar, decided on by a coin toss, their date then turned into going back to Ryan’s place to watch a movie. Paige said, “At midnight, we decided our date may have needed to end.. we got in his car and he drove me back to mine- on the way we stopped for a midnight snack at McDonald’s!” Their never ending first date was just the beginning of their story!

When I asked Paige what their perfect Saturday together looks like, she told me that due to work schedules, it’s rare for them to have a weekend together! But when they do, Paige said, “Ultimately, a perfect Saturday is…just relaxing together with Lilly [their pup!] snuggled in the middle of us or even going out to lunch and running errands together.. Just spending the day with him is always the best days.. since they are few and far between!

Want to hear how Ryan popped the question!? Paige told me, “He proposed in our home! He pretended the washing machine broke and called me to the laundry room. He said something fell out of the machine and then he pulled out the ring box! It was definitely a surprise!” I may be biased since my Ryan also proposed to me in our home, but there’s something extra special about getting engaged in a place that you spend your day-to-days together. 🙂

To the Newlyweds

Paige & Ryan, thank you so much for having me as a part of this journey! It has been such a joy getting to know you both, and I’m so grateful for you two! Your wedding day was such a perfect celebration of your love, and I’m so happy I got to witness it, and capture all the memories of your day! Wishing you both a lifetime of love and adventure and puppy snuggles! xoxo
