This beautiful fall day I was able to spend with Caitlin Scott from Caitlin Scott Photography and assist her at her clients’ wedding as a second photographer. Not only I had an immense fun working at the Hamilton Manor during this Jewish and Chinese wedding but Caitlin is always so great to spend time with. Enjoy a few moments from Sami and Chris’s wedding at Hamilton Manor and hopefully you are able to see the funness and beauty of this couple :).
The Hamilton Manor Wedding Getting Ready
Both Sami and Chris were getting at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Princeton. The moods in both room were light and happy! I got to hang out with the groom and his groomsmen so I got to experience a wonderful sense of humor, impeccable style and funny moments that guys have during their getting ready photos. They all wore fun socks and Chris wore red cool suspenders. I definitely appreciated the style.
The Hamilton Manor Wedding Portraits
Once everyone was ready, we headed to Princeton University grounds for the first look and for wedding portraits for Sami and Chris. Sami looked stunning in her strapless wedding gown with a long full train. Chris absolutely loved the way she looked and kept complimenting her. Sami loved Chris’s look at well, especially those red suspender :).
After their first look we have found some pretty light and grabbed a few portraits of them and their bridal party. And you just look at this cool group :). They definitely know their style! Actually arriving at Nassau Street in Princeton gave us those iconic backdrops that everyone loves. We didn’t have too much time for portraits those so our walk was nice and quick and we photographed the stops that were the closest to us.
The Hamilton Manor Wedding Ceremony
The time has come and we have arrived at the Hamilton Manor for Chris and Sami to officially tie the knot. The wedding decor was so beautiful and happy! Orange, pink and purple floral pieces stood out so wonderfully on the Hamilton Manor set. Not only the mood was festive but the looks as well! And these were little feet of their flower girl and ring bearer. I couldn’t resist snapping a candid details photo of this cuteness. After signing the katooba, it was time for the ceremony to start. Beautiful and fun from the beginning till end, the ceremony held important message as well as light-hearted moments with jokes and fun. Chris successfully broke the glass and they were officially married!!!!
Wedding Reception at the Hamilton Manor
The time to celebrate has come! It was time for the wedding reception. The gorgeousness of the Hamilton Manor never stops impressing me. Everything is always elegant and beautiful. And Sami and Chris’s wedding decor only made everything even better. Tall vases with flowers inside as centerpieces made the wedding decor so gorgeous. The party was the way the Jewish party is supposed to be – TONS of dancing with every single guest on the dance floor, hora dance in all it’s glory, hilarious and touching at the same time wedding speeches and simply awesome time for everyone!
Sami and Chris were celebrated well! It was an awesome day for themselves and their families. The most important part that they were married and set for a wonderful future together!
