hall at the harbour, palmyra new jersey wedding // dawn + anthony

This wedding is admittedly one of my favorites. It could have something to do with the bride’s amazing dress, the sweet families watching their babies marry, and the fact that her son walked her down the aisle and her daughter was her maid of honor (SO.MUCH.LOVE.)

Oh, and the desserts. Man, did I shove a few cookies in my mouth on the way out. SOOO GOOOODD.



This is Dawn, she’s so great. And she’s being walked down the aisle by her son, Michael. So sweet, right?!


He dropped the rings. It was pretty funny.

Dawn, Anthony, Olivia, Michael + everyone else – thank you all so much! I adore you guys and loved capturing the love that you all share. I’d wish you so much love and happiness, but you’ve already got that, so instead I’ll just say that I can’t wait to watch it grow! xo, Lauren
