Ballyowen Golf Club. Hamburg, NJ.
I travel all over the east coast so much for weddings, that when a wedding is 15 minutes from your house, it feels like paradise. And Allison and Andrew got the perfect day for their Ballyowen Golf Club wedding and reception. Not a cloud in the sky, which also made for the perfect opportunity to capture the stars for an epic portrait. But first they had to get married. Allison and Andrew both got ready at the Grand Cascades Lodge where they also had their emotional first look. Then we took the short trip to Ballyowen where we avoided getting hit by golf balls while we did a portrait session on the course. The ceremony was as beautiful as the scenery. The evening and reception came quickly but that didn’t mean the party slowed down. Some very touching speeches by Allison and Andrews family and bridal party left no eye without a tear. But those tears were quickly gone once the awesome dancing started. We pissed a few people off when we snuck away for some evening portraits, but I think it was well worth it. Allison and Andrew got the chance to have the Milky Way in their photo. What a great day. And thanks again to Tim Cartagena for shooting this with me. His images are mixed in. Enjoy the images and congratulations to Allison and Andrew!
