Kristen and Nick’s wedding reception at the Coach House at the Ryland Inn was such a perfect celebration of their love! These two said I do at the beautiful Immaculate Conception Parrish in Annandale NJ surrounded by those closest to them! They then headed over to the Ryland for an evening of celebrations!
The whole week leading up their Coach House at the Ryland Inn spring wedding, was calling for 80% rain! We were prepared for it with umbrellas, backup plans, and adjustments. But wouldn’t you know, we woke up to a little drizzle and fog, then clear skies for the rest of the day! The rain held off all the way until the sparkler exit! Which we managed to sneak in in about two minutes! Run out, kiss, hug, run back in!
Kristen and Nick are both very close with their families, so it was really important to them to have everyone feel included and involved! They each had their little niece and nephew be a big part of their bridal party. I just love that these kiddos got to feel so included in the big day and surely will remember it for their entire lives! I was surprised that the two of them made it through the day with very little complaint! Wedding days can be very long and tiring for anyone, especially kids!
The backdrop of The Coach House at the Ryland Inn with the colors Kristen chose were just stunning! The Bridesmaids were in varying styles from Bill Levkoff and her Maid of Honor, Lisa, was in a gorgeous beaded blush pink gown by Adrianna Pappell. Paired with Kristen’s Allure Bridal Couture gown and Warren Country Events beautiful rose and greenery bouquets. It was all just pure perfection!
Kristen’s youngest bridesmaid, her Niece, worked up the courage to make a speech all on her own to Kristen and Nick. She may have threatened Nick with bodily harm should any heartache fall onto her favorite Aunt Kristen… but she was crying at the time, so maybe I heard her wrong. The video replay will surely tell that story.
Nick and Kristen have been together for 7 years. Their favorite past-time is to drink wine together by their backyard fire pit with their Sheepdog puppy whom they love and adore. Nick actually popped the question under the stars at their firepit! Just the two of them. Such a perfect night.
Kristen and Nick,
What a beautiful love filled day you guys had! I don’t think the smiles left your faces the whole day. You could just feel the amount of love you both have for one another. What an honor it was to be a part of the first day of the rest of your lives together! Wishing you both nothing but love and happiness for all the years of your lives. I hope to see you both again for the next chapter!
