Skylands Manor: The Wedding of Jill & Sean

The Skylands Manor is such an incredible setting for a wedding. The historic and richly appointed castle, the grounds overflowing with greenery, all of it. Our brains were exploding all day with ideas for different shots to take. What an amazing experience it was. Jill and Sean were so sweet, and totally indulged us whenever we wanted to take them here or there for a portrait. It was pretty much as perfect a day as we could have hoped for. Thank you, Jill and Sean, having us there.

Skylands Manor has beautiful rooms for the bride and groom to get ready with shelves full of gorgeous books. You really feel exactly how you imagined you might, getting ready in a place like that.

The bride's shoes sit in soft window light against the rich tones of the metalwork, the old wood, and the red carpeting.

The dark wood of the staircase and bannister are a beautiful contrast to her white dress, and the gorgeous stained glass windows can be seen in the background.

Wedding party portraits in front of Skylands Manor. They were really a fun, wonderful group of people. The pink gowns contrast beautifully with the dark suits.

We found an ivy covered wall around the back of the building, near where the deliveries are dropped off. Even back there, there is beauty.

We love when couples incorporate photographs in their decor. It shows the importance of photography at times like this, and honors the people in the picture frames so beautifully.

This wedding ceremony was short and sweet (rain was clearly on its way), and full of emotion and meaning. We loved the knot tying at the end.

We had to take just a few more portraits after the ceremony, once the risk of guests seeing the bride too early had passed. Skylands Manor makes one heck of a background, no?
