Olde Mill Inn wedding of Katy & Kevin|Basking Ridge, NJ

I love photographing winter weddings and Katy & Kevin’s was no exception. Katy even braved the weather without her jacket to show off the gorgeous beaded bodice of her Maggie Sottero gown…

Chloe, the Miniature Poodle on the left, belongs to Katy & Kevin, and Georgina, on the right, is Katy’s mom’s Standard Poodle. They both struck perfect poses for a few photos and they even managed to walk down the aisle at the church! But we were sure to keep Katy, and her dress at a distance…

The detailed beading on the gown was simply stunning, as was the bouquet by Somerset Hills Florist…

It was far from balmy, but Katy & Kevin’s wedding party and family were all troopers when it came to the group photos. The guys seemed pretty comfortable in their tuxes, but the bridesmaids definitely deserve a special shout for braving the cold in their short ballerina style dresses.

Katy was very excited about purchasing her “first” pair of Jimmy Choos for the wedding…

The vision for the reception was a romantic, winter wonderland theme, using wedding pale pink, sliver and gold – a shimmery enchanted winter forest look with candles…

Tell us a bit about yourselves and how you met.

Katy: I am a high school English teacher and Kevin works in finance. We met on-line when Kevin was living in Brooklyn. I knew Kev was the one when he bought a car to drive out to see me on the weekends after our third date.  He was such a gentleman. Before I knew it we bought a house together and I proposed!

Any advice for couples who are just starting out the wedding planning process?

Try to remain calm – everything will come together in the end.

What’s next for the two of you?

Katy: Hopefully some R & R after the craziness of wedding planning!
