I have had the pleasure of being friends with Martha and Jon for years, and it was SO wonderful to be a part of their wedding day. Martha has three sisters whom I am also friends with, and it's been so fun to be a part of two of their weddings as well. I felt like one of the family on this day, and all day my heart was bursting with joy!
MAN was this a good wedding to start my year off with! The Ryland Inn is such a beautiful venue, and it definitely made me with I lived closer to New Jersey so I could photograph there more. Everything from the first look location to the ceremony space was absolutely amazing, and I'd honestly put it up there as one of my favorite venues I've shot at in a while. The white and black building with all the windows was an absolute favorite of mine--check it out down below!
Martha wore the most beautiful BHLDN dress and Jon was extremely classy in all black and white for his tuxedo. Some of my favorite details of the day were the sunglasses that Jon bought for all his groomsmen--which made for the COOLEST photos, as well as Martha's bouquet which she made HERSELF the night before the wedding! So many thoughtful and intentional details went into this day, and they were all so fun to photograph.
The evening finished with one of the best dance parties I have been a part of ever and an amazing sparkler send off to cap the night. Like I said before, I don't think I could have chosen a better wedding to start of my year, and I am so thankful to Martha and Jon for asking me to be a part of it.
