Dana + Richard | Magical winter wedding in Princeton and Cranbury, NJ

Dana and Richard are such lovely, loving people.  Their engagement photos on the Princeton campus were among my favorite ever to shoot, just because it was so incredibly cute seeing how much fun they have together.  I just knew that their Christmas weekend wedding would be a beautiful event -- and wow, was I ever right!  :)

The weekend started with a fun rehearsal at the ceremony venue, Stone Hill Church of Princeton.  This is Dana and Richard's local church, which just recently moved into this new facility, and this wedding was the very first one ever to be held here!  The sanctuary is an amazing space, and all the Christmas and wedding decorations created the perfect environment for this magical wedding!

The rehearsal dinner (held at Peony Pavilion in Princeton) was such a fun time of celebrating the happy couple.  Toasts, roasts, and hilarious stories about Dana and Richard poured in as the guests enjoyed amazing food and equally wonderful company.

The morning of the wedding dawned bright, crisp, and cold, and the whole bridal party gathered to get ready in various wings of the church.  I made sure to stage a few fun detail shots before the dress, shoes, and flowers were needed.  :)

And then it was time for the bride, the groom, and the attendants to get ready for the big day!

Dana + Richard | Winter wedding sneak peeks

The weekend after Christmas, I had the wonderful privilege of shooting Dana and Richard's beautiful wintery, Christmasy wedding here in Princeton!  I'm still hard at work editing all the images of this gorgeous wedding, but wanted to share just a few sneak peeks -- because these lovely images are too good to keep to myself!  :)

Congratulations again, Dana and Richard!  Your wedding was such a beautiful day of love and laughter and pure joy, and I'm so glad I could be a small part of it!
