Rachel & Nick | Battleground Country Club Wedding, Manalapan, NJ

Rachel & Nick tied the knot at the Battleground Country Club in Manalapan, NJ on a beautiful September day surrounded by friends and family. Everything about their day was incredible! From the stunning navy, coral and gold color scheme, to all the gorgeous portrait locations and the wonderful team of vendors who all made this day happen, every part of the day was amazing. Some of my favorite details (among many!) included the thoughtful gift of custom hangers that Rachel gave to her bridal party and the display of generations of family photos at the reception – such a great way to honor that legacy of love. All the careful details that Rachel and Nick put planning their wedding day made the celebration perfectly “them”. 🙂

Nick proposed to Rachel in the sweetest way! To hear Rachel tell it,

“It was in October so we had it planned to go pumpkin picking at a pumpkin patch near his parents’ house in Vernon, NJ, and then go to his parents house. The pumpkin patch was mobbed with people and typically in a situation like that we’d both just be like “forget it, we’ll go another day” but all week Nick talked up this pumpkin patch and how much he wanted to go, so I stuck it out! We finally got on the hayride and as soon as we got off by the pumpkins, Nick was like “that pumpkin over there looks great, let’s go check it out”. So we get to the pumpkin and I see there’s writing on it and I go to tell Nick that we can’t take that one because it has writing on it but before I said anything I read what it said – “Will you marry me Rachel?” And I turn to Nick and he’s on one knee. I was so shocked, like literally speechless for a few seconds but finally I said yes!”

Rachel & Nick have such a beautiful story and it was truly an honor to photograph this next chapter in their story. These two are perfect together, balancing each other in the best possible way. Watching Rachel & Nick together you can clearly see the love and connection they have is something special. 

Congratulations, newlyweds!!! Thank you so much Rachel & Nick for having me be a part of your wedding day! <3
