When I first met with Dara and Bill, and listened to all the details and plans that Dara envisioned for her wedding day, I was in love (and I might have been more excited than Dara about her wedding, haha)! It was a bright, warm and sunny, Indian summer day in October. Everything took place at Stone Rows Farm in Stockton, New Jersey. Dara arrived with her bridesmaids in a limo, all of them energetic for the day ahead! I absolutely loved all of her wedding details!
As bridesmaids gifts, Dara gave all of her bridesmaids personalized tea cups with their monogram custom painted on them! While the girls sipped mimosas, I headed over to the other house on the property where Bill and his groomsman were getting ready. When I arrived they were hanging out, drinking and smoking celebratory cigars! They both wrote each other love notes to read before the ceremony! Dara had to stop reading and save it for later because she didn’t want to ruin her fresh makeup!
The outdoor ceremony had beautiful rustic old doors at the entry way as well as the alter and were decorated with beautiful florals. I especially loved her refreshment stand! The ceremony was beautiful! After the ceremony, we shot their large family, followed by the wedding party! I loved how excited they were for pictures! The bridal party went off to cocktail hour, and we were escorted to “Firefly Ally” in the woods. The sun was setting at the perfect moment and beautiful golden sunlight covered the area! It was dreamy and perfect!
We traveled farther out on the farm for couples pictures before going back to the barn for the reception! The couple was introduced and had their first dance! Did I mention that the barn was stunningly decorated?! When Dara was dancing with her father, at some point, she became very emotional and I really love that specific moment! It was so sweet! After dinner was served, everyone went wild on the dance floor! After the beautiful cake was cut, the party continued through the night! Congratulations Dara and Bill!
