Ali & Eric’s Ryland Inn Wedding

There are many things that I love about being a New Jersey / New York City wedding photographer and one of them is the close relationships I have built with other professionals in the industry.  Case in point, Stacey Sainato of Peony Events out of Morristown, NJ.  Stacey is an amazing event planner and has become a good friend over the past ten years!  When she contacted me to document Ali and Eric’s Ryland Inn wedding I was estatic!

Located in Whitehouse Station and set upon acres of historical grounds, The Ryland Inn has recently reopened after years of renovation to boast not only an exceptional menu and atmosphere, but also a brand new ballroom and event space.  This new venue combined with Stacey’s attention to the Fourth of July themed details and the red, white and blue inspired florals by Mike at Jardiniere Fine Flowers made for such a festive event!

Ali and Eric live in Seattle, WA and so we had not had a chance to meet often, as I tend to do with many of my clients, prior to the wedding.  However, that being said – working with Ali and Eric was a dream!  They were relaxed, authentically themselves and just let the day unfold in the most natural way. Thanks and shout-outs to the wonderful team that Stacey put together for Ali & Eric’s beautiful wedding (see full credits below)!

Ali is a musician.  Getting her behind the piano put her at ease!

Ali and Eric had their “First Look” at Ali’s parent’s New Jesey home.  It was the perfect spot for an intimate moment.

Before moving into the rest of the day, Ali wanted something different and cool with her Bridesmaids.

We collaborated, re-arranged her parent’s dining room and all agreed on a theme of #RBF.  So thrilled when Brides take a risk and get creative!
