Ilyssa & Corey
The Pleasantdale Chateau - West Orange, New Jersey
After a brief hiatus from our blog we decided to post mix of new and older weddings, so here’s an oldie but goodie (just 2017). Not only are Ilyssa and Corey an amazing couple, but they picked a beautiful place to get married. This wedding was the first time Nicole and I had been at The Pleasantdale Chateau over in New Jersey, and as soon as we arrived we couldn’t help but be super excited to plan out all the photo locations for Ilyssa and Corey that would capture all the beauty of their venue. However, this couple was so in love that they could have gotten married in a parking lot (oddly enough, I love the challenge of shooting in parking lots!) and you would still have been able to see the love and joy eminating off of them the entire day. Their day was planned our perfectly from the preparation timing to the photo schedule to their bon-fire after party. When you have a great timeline, combined with a couple that loves each other and wants to have a great time with their friends and family, you cannot help but capture beautiful real moments that they can cherish for the rest of their lives! This was one of our favorite weddings to date, not because of the venue, or the flowers (which were both also perfect!) but because Ilyssa and Corey let themselves get wrapped up in everything their special day had to offer, and that is all we want for our Brides and Grooms. When you have such an amazing day, it is so hard to choose photos for your gorgeous wedding album. You should see the album we made with Ilyssa and Corey ...100 pages!!! Enough talk about their big day at The Pleasantdale Chateau, you can see some photos below from their amazing wedding! Congratulations again to Ilyssa and Corey, we wish you all the best!
