Old buildings and beautiful grounds have always been one of my girlish delights, so the photos from today’s wedding had me extra excited! Vicki and Joe’s springtime nuptials were held at Skylands Manor, located in the garden of the Garden State, the New Jersey Botanical Gardens. Designed in the mid 1920s, the manor at Skylands was created to look centuries old, with its weathered stones and stained glass windows. The historical romance of the building inspired bride Vicki to create various antique details for the day, including cutting a heart shape in the pages of an old book to house the wedding rings for the ceremony. Other vintage details included two antique cars – 1927 and 1928 Pierce Arrows – which adorned the front lawn of the manor and brought a huge helping of 20s glamour. All in all, a wedding day saturated in classic romance. Photos of this celebration captured by Jordan Brian Photography.
Lace adds such classic charm to a wedding dress, and this gown is a lovely example!
These two antique cars, owned by Vicki’s stepfather, were a perfect addition to the day. They made for fun photos, too!
According to the photographer, “The…reception was so much fun, and we even got to sneak away to create a few nighttime photographs for the newlyweds!” (Isn’t the romantic drama of the nighttime photos stunning?)
