A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of shooting one of my boudoir hair-stylist’s wedding (she’s also my stylist =:). Mallory has been with me since the beginning, and I was so honored to be a part of her and Brandon’s day. Brandon and Mallory live and work right here in Red Bank, so it only made sense for them to have their wedding day events here as well.
When I arrived, their house was buzzing with excitement. Mallory looked absolutely radiant! Her dress was vintage elegance, and I was floored to find out that her mom had found it on eBay for only $30. See all of you brides-to-be out there, you don’t have to spend a mortgage payment on your dress. Everything about Mallory and Brandon’s event expressed their personalities from the rings (hand crafted by Quicksilver in Red Bank. NJ) to the cupcakes (made with love by The Petite Cafe in Nutley, NJ).
The day started with an intimate ceremony celebrating with immediate family, right in their own backyard. The two exchanged vows, rings, and a few laughs. What ceremony would be complete with out a few follies. It makes it all that much more memorable.
I’m lucky I had a mission to photograph, otherwise I think I would have been crying my eyes out during the ceremony. It truly was beautiful and moving.
Brandon looked absolutely handsome. I wasn’t surprised, but it was quite a departure from seeing him in his work attire.
I loved Mallory’s bouquet, it was a beautiful arrangement of vivd wildflowers and baby’s breath. It fit perfectly with this little spot. It was literally a “little” spot across from Jamian’s, where the reception was held. It was beautifully lit with a bit a green.
Jamian’s was the perfect atmosphere for an intimate and casual reception. Located right in the heart of Red Bank on Monmouth Street, the food was fantastic, and the staff was super sweet and anticipated every need and want.
I have dreams about these cupcakes. They were unbelievably amazing! The Petite Cafe is known for their “stuffed cupcakes”. With 102 flavors to choose from, these delicious concoctions are not only beautifully decorated, they are orgasmic. Try one, you’ll find yourself going back for seconds.
Surprisingly, the roles were reversed. The planning for the day was done by the groom. Great job Brandon! I’m sure the honeymoon was planned with as much love and care as your wedding day. I can’t wait to hear all about your trip to Greece.
Congratulations Mallory and Brandon! I wish you many years of happiness and love. Thank you for letting me be a part of your day.
