Southern Mansion Wedding Photos by Mt Laurel Wedding Photographer - Kayla+Dean Wedding

The wonderful beginning of Kayla and Dean’s story began when he threw coffee at her during her interview with the job and Dean was working at already. The introduction has happened and Dean’s phone number was shared with Kayla in a sleek way. It only took Kayla to get back to Dean 6 weeks :). But the wait was worth it. After lot of adventures together, now they knew they want to spend the rest of their lives together and the wedding planning has begun! Originally they were planning their wedding at a different venue but because the scheduling didn’t work so they chose the Southern Mansion in Cape May, NJ and it was simply wonderful. The old gorgeous colorful mansion had lots of history and beautiful decor and it ended up becoming such a beautiful backdrop for this wonderful couple. The date was chosen to be a 4th year anniversary of their dating, so Tuesday wedding it was :). Kayla and Dean and their families traveled down to Cape May, NJ from Maine and from North Jersey for this destination wedding at the Southern Mansion. The day was super cloudy and slightly misty but the mood was happy and the weather didn’t matter! We ended up starting their outside ceremony just a little bit earlier than planned so we can beat the coming rain. The decision was perfect and it was just a tiny bit misty during the ceremony and the rain didn’t get us outside. The ceremony was beautiful filled with tears and laughter and all the wonderful words and promises. The celebration afterwards was so festive and delightful! Check out some of their wedding moments and say your contract to them one more time!

Getting Ready at the Southern Mansion in Cape May, NJ

Both Kayla and Dean were getting ready to the Southern Mansion so I was able to get photos for both of them getting ready. Look at these beautiful details but most importantly people were about the get married. Kayla’s mom did everyone’s hair and let me tell you – she has some talent and skill! Everyone looked SO good! Kayla’s sister did everyone’s make up. One talented family!

Kayla wore beautiful lacy wedding dress and instead of the veil she had something like a blusher veil with real flowers in it. Simply gorgeous!

And before getting into her dress, Kayla had a snack. There was an edible flower on her plate so with a little bit of an encouragement she thought it would be a good day to taste the flowers 🙂 and now there is a proof of this in the photos.

First look and wedding portraits at the Southern Mansion in Cape May, NJ

Kayla and Dean decided to see each other before the ceremony and take care of all the photos before the ceremony and I was so happy for their decision because it was raining after the ceremony so it would be a little hard to fit everything in during the cocktail hour. And that way these awesome bride and groom got to enjoy their cocktail hour too! Well, when they saw each other, they definitely loved each other style and were super happy to see each other. We grabbed some of their portraits, then did some wedding bridal party photos and some family photos. And now we were all ready for the ceremony to begin!

Kayla’s borther-in-law helped her get to where she was supposed to start walking and everything was ready to go. Kayla and Dean had written their own vows and they were perfect. The family and closest friends definitely enjoyed witnessing these 2 people!

A little cart with bride’s 11 months old niece flipped over and she fell. Thank God the grass was soft but she got a little scared. She finished her walk though and did it perfectly.

The party was supposed to continue somewhere else for an after-party at a different address and I drove home to look through these awesome moments and started editing their photos. Such an honor to be a part of this wedding day for these loveliest people! God bless you guys!
