Kaylee and Jeff had A Winter Wedding at Lucien’s Manor. Meticulously landscaped gardens, manicured grounds, indoor and outdoor waterfalls, a marble pergola, and expansive foyer with grand staircase, Lucien’s Manor has no shortage of portrait locations! Kaylee and Jeff met one another online almost 7 years ago. Yay for Online connections! A week before Christmas in 2016, Kaylee and Jeff went to Peddler’s Village, and this when and where he popped the question! She obviously said YES!
Getting Ready with the Ladies at Staybridge Suites
Kaylee and her ladies got ready at Staybridge Suites in Mt. Laurel. Each and every one of them looked absolutely flawless with Makeup by Ashley Marie Makeup Artistry and their hair by Flawless Finish. Her mom helped her get into her dress, which she said “YES!” to at Bridal Garden. As you’ll notice in the photo below, there is a gold cross pin. This pin has been passed down and every woman in her family has worn it when they got married. Our favorite part of the morning was Kaylee’s first look with her dad! We love how emotional dad’s get when they see their little girl for the first time in their wedding dress!
Getting Ready with the Guys at Staybridge Suites
Jeff and his guys also got ready at Staybridge Suites, but of course, not where he might catch a glimpse of his future bride before the first look! Jeff and his guys looked so dapper in their suits from Jos A Bank. You can never go wrong with a Navy Suit and Brown shoes!
An Emotional First Look with the Bride and Groom
Kaylee and Jeff opted to see one another before the ceremony, and that made us so excited! Not only did we get a lot of time for photos, but the emotion from Jeff made it all worth it. Since it was a bit chilly outside, we had them do their first look in front of the fireplace, in the hotel.
Bridal Party & Couples Portraits at Cooper River Park
We searched for the perfect place for Kaylee & Jeff’s bridal party and couples portraits. After our first option being a bit under water, we found an even better location, right along Cooper River. We loved not only how sweet they were together, but also how much fun their bridal party was. They were up for anything, even in the cold weather, with snow still on the ground!
Ceremony at St. Peter’s Church in Merchantville
St. Peter’s Church was founded in 1903, and when you enter, you can just see all of the detail and hardwork that went into building such a beautiful church. Kaylee and Jeff said their sacred marriage vows in front of all of their family and friends.
A Winter Wedding at Lucien’s Manor
Kaylee and Jeff chose to have their reception in the Venetian Ballroom. Inspired by the palaces of Italy, the Venetian Ballroom is the epitome of elegance. Upon entering, your guests will be greeted by the gentle sound of water cascading down a tiled wall. In the opposite corner, a stately hand-carved fireplace adds additional ambience, while nine-foot arched windows, ornate crystal chandeliers, large marble dance floor, and state-of-the-art LED lighting bathe the room in a warm glow. They danced the night away with Pure Energy Production as their DJ and Photo Booth. Gosh, and their floral centerpieces by Sunrise Florist were breathtaking! Their first dance song was a surprise to the bride! Her face lit up as You and Me by the Dave Mathews Band started playing! The rest of the evening was an incredibly fun blur of dancing and celebrating!
