One gorgeous fall day I wasn’t booked for a wedding and so conveniently got invited to work with Meghan Burke on her wedding. It is always awesome to be a second photographer at the wedding because the perspectives that I am able to get are just slightly different than from what a main photographer is getting. It’s always fun to have a challenge of creating beautiful images when I am not the one in control of a situation. Well, enjoy a few moments that I have captured throughout the day on Zach and Gabbi’s Big day at their Running Deer Gold Club wedding.
The day has begun at Vineland Holiday Inn with all the guys making sure Zach looking his sharpest :). Well, I am slightly exaggerating by saying this. Zach is a military man so I am sure he has the highest standards for himself and wouldn’t let things to be imperfect. The guys/groomsmen were there to actually distract him and have fun :). I love grabbing either bride’s or groom’s photo that is a reflection of them and here I actually was a part of the photo as well. Can you see me :D?!Once everyone was ready we headed to the Parvin State Park for the first look and for the bridal portraits. Look how sharp the groomsmen looked!
And yes, in every bunch there is a trouble-maker. Can you spot one? After a few serious portraits we decided to incorporate some fall elements and make a few goofy photos. Not sure if Meghan approved once she saw the photos when she got home in the evening, but we definitely had fun :). And then the girls have arrived and they were all ready to see each other!!! Gabbi was simply stunning in the lacy strapless wedding gown. The cathedral veil was the most beautiful thing I have ever seen. And her whole look was simply angelic. I can only imagine how excited Zach was to see his beauty! The fall colors were kind of perfect as well because they created this wonderful happy pop of color for every background that we used. The wine and pink wedding color pallet blended in so perfectly with warm yellows and oranges. It was pretty much a perfect situation. And yes, while the bridal party had their photos taken, the trouble-maker was fueling on Jack to make sure the juices are flowing through his body all day long! He needed to make sure he is in shape for jokes and crazy ideas.
Wedding Ceremony at the Running Deer Gold Club
And not it was time for the wedding ceremony. Gabbi and Zach official tied the knot and their families sand friends were more than excited for them! The celebration began and was amazingly fun!
What a beautiful day it was!
