This wedding season couldn’t have closed out any better for us this fall season than this awesome wedding at a stunning venue at the Merion in Cinnaminson, NJ. We started of the day at the Crowne Plaza in Cherry Hill, NJ where Zyreen and Sanford also had their first look, before we celebrated at The Merion for the remainder of the day. Though I must say that this wedding day, the first look helped us out a lot if not, saved the day for us. You ask why? I’ll get to that in a bit.

What a gorgeous ring to symbolized their marriage.

 

At the Crowne Plaza we go where they both had their pre-ceremony preparations. It was a blessing to have great weather to start of the day.

Our bride and her bridesmaids were ready for the wedding day! How about that splash of color with their robes.

What a beautiful wedding gown that was brought over from the Philippines!

A gorgeous dress our bride had. It was a custom designed dress from abroad.

The dress fitted her nicely and looked incredible. ! With the help of her beautiful bridesmaids.

Our fashion inspired shot with the bridesmaids! They could really grace the cover of a magazine, effortlessly.

 

On the other side of things, we go to the groomsmen.

Time for the first look! We picked an outdoor location as the hotel lobby was really busy due to an event happening.

Here we are with a sweet moment at the first look. where the anticipation heightens as they are both excited to see each other for the first time.

Such a sweet moment between the bride and groom. Yes, I did say that already but it just truly is.

After the First look at the Crowne Plaza in Cherry Hill, we went to Cooper River Park nearby to do some photos.

We arrived to an area at Cooper river Park and got our stunner bridal party shot.

The favorite bridal party shot. the fall season just really helps with the vibrancy of the colors.

The brides entrance, now with her awesome veil. The garden at the Merion is the perfect setting for a fall wedding! She just had everyone in awe with the full wedding dress.

The parents were waiting halfway down the aisle to walk her down to her husband to be.

The Merion in Cinnaminson was the perfect venue for our couple Zyreen and Sanford. This new garden built this year is perfect for outdoor ceremonies, The Merion did an outstanding job on this one.

All their closest family and friends gathered for them on this joyous day. What a beauty this ceremony space at the garden by the Merion.

And as they give their own personal vows to each other, everyone felt the sincerity of their love.

 

The-Merion-Caterers=Wedding

The vows they spoke to each other were one of the most sweetest vows I've heard at a wedding. I think the parents could agree.

And her as well.

And they are married! The happy couple!

Because of the area restrictions, the ceremony area was not available early on, pushing the schedule a bit back, thus the only hour gap between the end of the ceremony to the start of reception got even shorter. This is why the first look may have saved the day for us. I know it is not for everyone but in this case, it really helped our schedule tremendously.

The things we needed had we not done the first look was, I’ll just say would not have been enough time to get and especially when, (this was the biggest reason) as soon as the ceremony ended, it poured like the monsoon! That would not have been an ideal scenario to get natural looking photos for family formals, bridal party photos and the bride and groom shots. Not to say that it wasn’t doable, they would have just been indoors and wouldn’t look the same with the sun already had set at that time of the day. And now we move on the the party!

Very minimalist and simple with their reception decor. Still maintaining the elegant look to it. Beautiful setup by The Merion.

Our groom is an avid Philadelphia Eagles Football fan, what better way to showcase that than at your own wedding right?

A Philadelphia Eagles Ice sculpture was on display which really brought out the football and non-football fans in awe!

The first dance as husband and wife.

What a beauty the Skylight dome is for the first dance.
