Nicolette & Andrew [Bear Brook Valley Fredon, NJ Wedding Photographer]

Nicolette & Andrew have waited SO long for their wedding day, like so many other couples this year! I remember when I first met them in 2018! Sofia was just a BABY! They did say they wanted to enjoy a longer engagement than most couples to give them time to plan their wedding and enjoy being engaged and it’s like the gods took that statement and MADE sure it happened. They first planned to be married in April 2020, right when the world shut down. Then they pushed back to October 2020, just as everything got bad all over again. They then pushed out their wedding an entire year… but quietly got married to each other on their original wedding day. Nothing crazy, just them 🙂 So TECHNICALLY they’ve been married this whole time! But now it was time to finally CELEBRATE these two! It was a PERFECT October wedding day. Dare I say it even was HOT! lol But beautiful nonetheless. It was finally happening and the excitement would build up all day long until finally, Andrew opened the barn doors and finally saw his wife standing there… looking like the most beautiful bride! Scroll down to see his face, it says it all!! 🙂

I LOVED Nicolette and Andrew’s vision of their wedding day. They loved Bear Brook Valley and wanted photos in all the best places around the venue! We hung out in the vineyard for a lot of the day, with the gorgeous venue behind them. It was perfect! As Nicolette walked down the aisle to Andrew she screamed out, “WE’RE HERE!!” to their guests and everyone erupted in cheers. After YEARS of waiting for it all to come together, it finally did – and it was all beautiful. They exchanged rings and vows with the most beautiful fall sunset behind them in an unplugged ceremony that everyone respected and just like that, they were husband and wife again 😉 The decor in the reception was simple and elegant but all everyone came to do was PARTY! They danced, they drank, they toasted these two. When we had a quick moment, we brought them out for sparkler photos with their bridal party and parents and before we knew it, the day they have waited SO LONG for finally came to an end! These two from the moment I met them have always felt like close friends and I have only wished for the best for them and I’m just so glad their wedding day was nothing short of AMAZING! SO many favorites from this wedding – and it’s my last wedding of 2021!!! What a great one to go out on! Enjoy my favorite images and Nicolette & Andrew, I love and adore you both and wish you nothing but endless love and happiness together!
