[Wedding] Nicole & Brian – Old Tappan Manor in Old Tappan, NJ

We’ve been looking forward to this wedding for well over a year now, because we knew Nicole and Brian would pull out all the stops to throw one of the craziest parties we’ve ever had the privilege of capturing. This wedding celebration was particularly memorable for us because we had planned all our beautiful outdoor portrait locations two weeks prior to the event…and then of course, it started to rain. But with some quick thinking and a few phone calls, we ended up with a back-up location that was even MORE awesome than the first! But before we get into all that awesomeness, let’s begin our story with our bride Nicole who started her day at the nearby Marriott.
