Lauren and Michael’s wedding at The Mansion at Mountain Lakes was breathtaking! Absolutely every aspect of the day was perfectly curated to create a timeless elegance that reflected Lauren and Michael’s love for each other and their families!

This was definitely a big family affair full of joy and laughter, all wrapped up in a gorgeous bow! With all of the beauty that surrounded the day, there was a ton of it; but what was most beautiful was the love, and honor Lauren and Michael showed their families. They happily showered everyone there with their attention and affection while giving them a wedding celebration they will never forget! There were so many memorable moments I could spend all day filling you in on all the details! Instead, I’ll share a few of my favorite moments with you!

One of my favorite times during every wedding is going to the bridal suite!

It is always so much fun! This was the same! All of Lauren’s best friends were getting glammed up in the same hotel as us, so I could go sneak over and meet everyone a little early! I was greeted with big smiles and hugs and sweet stories! Since John and I were planning to arrive at the venue before Lauren could get there, I offered to take all of her bridal details over, including her wedding gown, so that I could go ahead and get started. After asking to take her dress out of sight in my vehicle only hours before her wedding, I realized that was crazy! To my absolute surprise, Lauren said, yes, of course, I completely trust you. It may not sound monumental but, it was! To have her express her faith in me in such a big way was honestly one of the most memorable moments of my career.

That’s not all!

Laurens’s dad, Steve, shocked everyone when he entered the reception masterfully playing the drum, only to be followed in by bagpipes and additional drums! They played several tunes during their time at the reception and ended with a beautiful tribute to our Military, first responders, and the NYPD! Fun fact Laurens precious grandfather, Tom, retired from the NYPD!

Lauren and Michael, where do I start?! You two are amazing people with giant hearts, and I’m so thankful that we met you! I loved every moment of your wedding day, and I hope that it was precisely what you both dreamed of. Your families and friends are lovely and made us both feel so loved and welcomed! I’m so excited for all that the future has to hold for you both, and I can’t wait to see it unfold! Soak up this incredibly precious time of being newlyweds! Now snuggle up together and relive your wedding day with this glimpse into your gallery! I love you tons!
