Wedding Day

I am so in love with this beautiful, boho, backyard wedding in New Jersey! The September sunflowers were in bloom, the weather was still warm, and the people knew how to party. Could you ask for a better combo?

Arielle & Brian hosted their dream wedding at home on their farm. Yes, home FARM! With its rolling meadows, fairytale sized oak trees and fields of flowers, it undoubtedly proved to be the perfect backdrop for this beautiful couple’s big day. 

Love Story

As told by Arielle… “We met at the Court Jester in Freehold in 2016. Brian had been working there as a bartender for years and I started as a server. I gave him my number on my first night working. I had a gut feeling he was the one and I was persistent to get what I wanted! 

We dated for 5 years before he proposed. We were supposed to go to dinner with another couple in Sea Girt so Brian said we should go grab a drink beforehand. He drove down in our old 1950 Ford truck that I love. Brian had the whole thing planned out. He said there weren’t any parking spots, so parked on a random side street. 

After getting drinks he said we should walk on the beach on the way back. That was definitely out of character for Brian – but I wasn’t going to turn him down! After walking for 5 minutes or so he had a whole set-up on the beach and got down on his knee. I am pretty sure I had a panic attack but it was without a doubt the best night of my life. Turns out, the couple that we were supposed to be going to dinner with set it all up and took pictures when it happened!”
