[Wedding] Lauren + John – Mercer Oaks in Princeton Junction, NJ

Lauren and John’s wedding took place a week after Hurricane Sandy swept through the east coast. Thankfully their venue was far enough inland where the storm had minimal impact on their wedding festivities. The great news was (for us photographers anyway), Sandy left the skies overcast from horizon to horizon.  And even better news: Lauren and John were willing to brace the freezing cold to take advantage of all this beautiful lighting!
