Lauren and Frank’s wedding has been a long time coming! Lauren and Frank were originally supposed to get married last year, but as we all know the pandemic had other plans for them. These two were finally able to tie the knot this July and it was an absolutely magical day! The Ryland Inn in Whitehouse Station, New Jersey as some of the most beautiful grounds I have ever had a chance to photograph! The Coach House at The Ryland Inn features beautiful landscaping with gorgeous buildings offering a rustic yet elegant vibe. The 200-year-old barn at The Coach House at Ryland Inn with the original silo makes the perfect spot for rustic portraits. The Grand Ballroom at Ryland Inn offers a luxurious country farmhouse vibe paired with a modern twist, with floor-to-ceiling windows and a large stone fireplace.
Lauren and Frank’s wedding day started off with a slight scare in the weather, as it started off very cloudy in the beginning parts of the day. However, right in the middle of their first touch and private vow reading in front of The Coach House at Ryland Inn, the sun made its appearance though! Poor Frank was directly in the beam of the sunlight, and I can only imagine how hot it must have been standing in the sun in a tuxedo! He hid this heat exhaustion very well as Lauren read her beautiful vows for him though! After their first touch and private vow reading, Lauren and Frank had a magical first look filled with so much laugher and tears of joy. Immediately after the first look, it was like all the anxiety and nervousness they both felt prior just disappeared and they were ready to officially tie the knot!
Immediately after their first look, we did a few portraits outside The Grand Ballroom at Ryland Inn under the covered pull-through before having to tuck inside for a break in the air conditioning because it was so hot out! Once the sun came out, it created a lot of humidity and made the outside almost unbearable when the sun was out. After finishing their bridal party inside the cocktail hour space and family formals at the alter, it was time for their beautiful ceremony on the lawn on the Grand Ballroom at Ryland Inn. Luckily, the sun disappeared again making their ceremony a very pleasant and enjoyable time! The reception took place in The Grand Ballroom and it was nothing short of magical! The Ryland Inn is such a beautiful venue and I can only hope to have many more weddings there in the future! So much laughter and love filled the room as their party commenced! I’m so honored to have been the one chosen to capture Lauren and Frank’s love story!
