“If you look in the right way,

you can see the whole world is a garden”

Amanda and Remy are two romantic and snazzy people. When we met at their consult we had a great time talking about their upcoming backyard wedding and their rivaling football teams. When we met up to take their engagement photos last fall, we had a blast hanging out and exploring the outdoors, something that they both enjoy very much. It was no surprise that their backdoor wedding was an all outdoor and tented! It couldn’t have been more elegant.

The backyard wedding took place at the house that Remy grew up in. An amazing big house located on a hilltop in Hopewell, New Jersey! The yard and grounds were incredible. Every corner of the property was picture perfect, we swooned when we pulled up!

We started the day with getting ready photos of the girls upstairs. Everything was sunny and bright and Amanda and her bridesmaids were all relaxing.  We were able to get some detail shots while they were finishing up their hair and makeup. The house was so elegant and the windows wee enough to make any photographer swoon!

Andy went across to the other side of the house to get some photos of Remy and the groomsman getting ready. Remy got all the groomsman personalized pint glasses which I thought was such a unique gift! Theodore helped Remy with the final touches of his super snazzy suit, and everyone looked awesome.

After getting dressed, Amanda wanted to do a little first look with her dad before the ceremony. It was so sweet and her dad was in awe of his beautiful daughter. We waiting a few minutes downstairs before the ceremony started, and we all peaked out the windows to the crowed of loved ones who were anxiously awaiting the beautiful bride.

The ceremony was on top of a hill and you had the view of a farm with rolls of hay that rolled down the hill. The sun was in a perfect spot and it smelled like freshly cut grass. My favorite groom reaction this year came from Remy when he saw Amanda come down that long isle. Amanda looked amazing in her silk trumpet style dress, with the most perfect lace details. It had delicate lace cap sleeves and a keyhole back which fit her body flawlessly. The ceremony had some readings from loved ones and their exchange of vows was so genuine. It was overall a perfect ceremony!

After the Ceremony we stole Amanda and Remy away for portraits before the sun went down.  Everyone looked amazing and we loved being able to go across the street to a neighboring farm for a couple more intimate portraits. The love these two share is obvious and I love the way Remy makes Amanda laugh! Their personalities truly shine through their photos.

After portraits we headed over for cocktail hour complete with amazing food and great company. We set up our equipment in the HUGE tented reception and every little detail was dazzling! There was a fire pit, s’mores and a PACKED dance floor the entire night. Every single person was having a great time, including Andy, Jamie and I! It was the perfect ending to a magnificent day. Thank you Amanda and Remy for having be a part of your big day!
