Charles and Ashley’s ‘Vintage Dream’ Colourful Wedding in New Jersey by Elizebeth Unruh Studio

I just love it when pets play a big part in a couples wedding ceremony and today’s wedding does just that! Ashley and Charles were married on 5th October at Tuckahoe, New Jersey and the day was made extra special when Saison, their fur baby dog, made an appearance and nearly stole the show! The day had touches of vintage and shabby chic, with the distressed wood and eclectic mix of textures and an array of colours. The venue lends it self perfectly to the vintage atheistic they were looking for, the gorgeous outdoor ceremony and the rustic barn reception with white wood backdrop, both fit perfectly together. I just love this wedding, it’s full of fun, colour and of course the cutest dog! Big thanks to Elizebeth Unruh Studio for the delightful photos.

Liz The photographer tells us all about the day

Wedding days are truly special when you were honoured to shoot one of your friends weddings. When it came to saying yes to capturing Charles and Ashley‘s it was a no brainer. Happy, fun and we tight? Sign me up! I loved experiencing their love not only through the lens but through the eyes of a friend ( corny but it’s true!)

Charles and Ashley’s Everly at Railroad wedding was nothing short of amazing. Every detail from the beginning of the day to the end was filled with colour, happiness and classic vibes. Our day started with Charles Who sported a custom made suit in navy and accented pink ties. His friends rallied him in his home while they enjoyed IPAs. It wasn’t before long that we made our way to Ashley.

Mimosas in hand these girls wasted no time, to have a good time! The bridesmaids were so helpful in the morning with our crazy requests, like hanging dresses from the second floor, and aiding Ashley prepare to get ready. Ashley wore a blank Dress with accents of pinks, blues and her amazing flower crown made by @salty. Her shoes and Grandmothers aquamarine ring played as her something borrowed and something blue.

It was our first time shooting at Everly at Railroad and I can say that it was an experience outside of our realm be in Cape May photographers. When you’re used to a Victorian Hotels and homes walking into this modern wedding venue was like being a kid in a candy store. Everlys attention to detail, amazing calligraphy and vintage finds made it so much fun to step outside of our comfort zone and create. Add a gorgeous couple to though that makes? Dream team. Upon arriving to Everly we completed family formals on their gorgeous porch outside of their suite. Charles and Ashley‘s wedding ceremony was short and sweet filled with heartfelt written vowels and a couple of teary eyes. Their wedding day wouldn’t have been complete if they’re fuzzy fur baby, Saison, didn’t make it to the party!

And there we had it, Mr. and Mrs. Hewitt were introduced to their friends and family! With the help of DJ Denny oh Who gathered and rally the party together effortlessly, they danced and sang the night away. And let’s be real here, is your wedding reception really a party if *NSYNC or Backstreet Boys isn’t played?? Thank God for DJ Denny oh!
