Winter weddings in NJ can be a hit or miss with our weather being so back and forth, but Danielle and Chris’s lakeside wedding at the Rock Island Lake Club, in Sparta was definitely an amazingly beautiful December wedding. The fact that they had their outdoor ceremony overlooking the lake, with the most beautiful afternoon winter sunset, was a testimony to that! However, a wedding is never just beautiful on it’s own, without two beautiful people who are just completely in love to really make it happen. Danielle and Chris are just about the nicest people I know – gave me all of their trust for me to create meaningful images out of their love and commitment to each other – and I am thankful for that. Their tears for each other made this event that much more special for me to capture, and the great moments on the dance floor – including a cameo band appearance with Chris and his band – made the evening just fly by, it was so much fun! Here are just a few of my favorites to tell the story of the day! And thank you to my 2nd photographer Niño for helping me capture it!
