Michelle & Brian – Commonwealth Manor
As many of you know, I love it when the couples see each other for the first time (and I always encourage it) so we’ll start with that moment. As soon as I took this picture , it stuck in my mind. You can actually feel Michelle’s nervousness and emotions she was going through waiting for Brian to come down.
And then, Brian arrives … I love capturing those moments.
I really enjoyed photographing at Commonwealth Manor. It combines that old farm house architecture with modern landscaping allowing the photographer to create the look he’s after.
Michelle and Brian met in Sea Isle City in New Jersey, so they had a beach theme for their wedding.
The flower girl and the ring bearer were so cute.
What is this you ask? It’s the first dance. This has to be one of the best first dances I’ve seen. They did a compilation of many songs, and let me tell you, they can shake it !
We than went out for some fun portraits.
And while doing some bridal party pictures I noticed the little ring bearer…. What is he thinking?
Wait for it ….. wait for it … wait for it …
How cute are they?
The flower girl was running around her parents. I was thinking “OK, I only need a fraction of a second, can you rest a little?” … and BAM, she did. She is gorgeous.
Can you see the love of their parents in their eyes? You can tell that she will always be daddy’s little girl.
And a mother’s love…
And a “retiring dance” …
What better way to end this if not with a great picture of an awesome couple.
