Scott + Jennie / by Brooke Courtney

Scott + Jennie's celebration was one of three weddings that Kristen and I shot in a row, in New Jersey, and I couldn't have asked for a better way to kick off "Mega Weekend!" I absolutely loved shooting at Bonnet Island Estate in Long Beach Island. Their property was beautiful and I would shoot there any day. Jennie started her day by getting ready with her girls upstairs, while the guys stood in a semi circle downstairs and talked about business. Scott surprised Jennie by giving her a bracelet that matched her wedding rings and Jennie surprised Scott with tickets to the Eagles vs Cowboys game.

By 5:00 in the evening, the little wooden chapel on the estate was filled with family and friends and loads of sunlight. After the ceremony, I shot all portraits (family, bridal party and bride/groom) in 18 minutes, because the sun was setting SO FAST.

One of my favorite parts of the reception was when they followed "family tradition" for the song Dancing On The Ceiling and held someone upside down so they could actually "dance on the ceiling." It was amazing and I'm planning to steal the tradition. Oh! And there was a flashmob right after the speeches. Also amazing.

Enjoy my favorite images from their wedding and leave comments to let me know which ones you love the most! -Brooke
