Princeton is such a beautiful place for wedding photos and I am incredibly happy and Nicole and Corey were able to go there on their wedding day. I was at their wedding because Dawn Joseph had me there to second shoot for her. Everyone started their getting ready at the hotel near by the Windsor Ballroom where their wedding would happen. The guys have definitely had fun in their preparations! Once everyone was ready, we headed to the Princeton University for Nicole and Corey first look and their and bridal party portraits. As it was a Saturday, there was not too many people, and those who was walking by were saying their congratulations. We had a good time there, and when it was time, we headed back to the hotel to get ready for their ceremony. Read below about their wedding ceremony and reception.
And this wedding was second shot for Dawn Joseph Photography.
Both the bride and the father being emotional after seeing each other for the first time this wedding morning.
Princeton University Wedding Portraits
So as I have mentioned before, Nicole and Corey chose Princeton University as a place for the wedding photos. Guys have arrived first and we had some time for fun. Nicole’s dad definitely wanted to have fun too :D. And once the girls have arrived, we started off with the first look for these awesome bride and groom. And can I tell you how awesome it was! Corey had probably the best reaction I have ever seen! He was stunned by Nicole’s beauty! And rightfully so! He gorgeous white strapless wedding gown was perfect; her veil had some lace and was simply beautiful; and her white and blush pink flowers were so elegant! And the family and friends enjoyed being there too!
Wedding Ceremony at Windsor Ballroom
And now it was exciting time for the wedding ceremony! The bride and groom hid away from the guests and prepared emotionally for the ceremony. The family and friends were more than excited to witness the ceremony too and everyone was there on time. The ceremony started promptly at scheduled time and all the fun began. Corey was super excited to see Nicole and as I tell of my couples that the first look never spoils the ceremony emotions, and as you will see, it did not. There were many emotional moments that brought tears and laughter to everyone’s faces. But the most important was that now Nicole and Corey were married!
Windsor Ballroom Wedding Reception
And from everything I saw, I could tell that these bride and groom have impeccable style. From the way they looked, to locations they chose for their portraits to the venue they chose and the way the decorated it. Beautiful elegant chandeliers were so perfect with the purple and rose decor, Flyers fans couldn’t leave the decor without the team flag during the grand entrance though :D.The speeches were hilarious, the first dance was beautiful and the whole celebration was so wonderful!
Congratulations Nicole and Corey and thank you Dawn to having to second shoot for you!
