Welkinweir Estate Wedding | Renee & Jordan

Sometimes I don't meet my couples until their wedding day.  I remember being on vacation with my family in Ocean City, New Jersey when Renee and Jordan and I had our first phone conversation.  They told me about what they were planning at Welkinweir and how everything was long-distance.  I can't imagine planning a wedding from far away, let alone hiring all of my vendors without meeting anyone but Renee and Jordan made wonderful choices based on reviews and internet resources and all of the details came together so beautifully.  I was in awe of the florals by Faye & Renee.  The combination of colors and blooms was absolute perfection and I could have looked at their ceremony arbor all day.  Renee and Jordan wanted to create a more intimate day with a smaller group of friends and family and you can really feel the difference when that happens.  Things don't seem to operate at such a frenetic pace with a smaller crowd and everyone seemed to really enjoy themselves and appreciate all of the finer details that went into planning the day.  Don't get me wrong, larger weddings excite me too, sometimes the fast pace and energy of a huge crowd is inspiring, but it's interesting how the size of a guest list is one more reflection on the couple and what they want from their wedding day.  I hope you enjoy the images of this sweet, laid-back couple.  It is always such a treat when I get to work with such nice people.  A big thank you to Annemarie Kopey who shot alongside me for this one.

Jordan brewed all of the beer that was served to their guests, including mead for the toasts.  This beautiful board described each different kind of beer and was located right next to the bar.  How cool is that?!
