For a bride who pretty much thought of everything for her wedding day, from the details of her itinerary to the details of her details, Josie was cool as a cucumber when we arrived at her home for bridal prep that morning. I almost half-expected a pile of binders by her side, all marked with post-its, bookmarks and scribbles from this past year. But obviously, there was nothing to worry about (Vince probably would’ve assured us of that from the start!). It’s not every day we’re blessed with perfect weather for a perfect celebration, as well as several hours blocked off for photos at one of the most gorgeous venues in New Jersey: none other than The Pleasantdale Chateau!
