Colleen and Paul’s wedding blended a whimsical woodland theme with a traditional ceremony and reception. The Hamilton Manor in Hamilton, NJ was the perfect spot for this fun and quirky couple to create the wedding of their dreams. Starting with a garden ceremony in the venue’s gazebo where lush florals and vintage “shabby-chic” details set the tone for the day’s celebration. The color story combined shades of pale blue with pops of burgundy and the vibrant greens of the garden provided just the right back drop for the woodland theme that would carry over into the reception. Colleen was absolutely radiant as she glided down the aisle in her traditional A-line gown with its lace detailing and delicate spaghetti straps and Paul was handsome in his dusty blue tux with rich burgundy accessories.
Inside, the ballroom was decked out with rustic touches and soft white florals with burgundy accents and plenty of lush greenery enhanced the reception’s woodland theme. Colleen and Paul entered to their first dance and were soon joined on the floor by their wedding party and guests. After dinner, the pair cut their cute tree trunk wedding cake, complete with initial “carving” and guests enjoyed a buffet of amazing sweets alongside a whimsical candy table bursting with all of the couple’s favorite chocolate bars! As the sun set on their wonderful wedding day, Colleen and Paul celebrated and danced into the night surrounded by love and happiness.
