William & Casey are a love story many years in the making.
These two have a beautiful family with four children and have been planning their wedding for a long time! But June of 2021 was meant to be for these two, who tied the knot at the beautiful Carriage House in Galloway, NJ. This traditional venue was the perfect setting for them, and we had an amazing time celebrating with the couple and their friends and family.
These two started their day in the Carriage House's separate Bride and Groom suites. Both were surrounded by their closest friends and family as they got dressed and ready for their day. The two suites are connected by a large balcony that spans the whole front of the building, where the two shared a romantic first look, accompanied by their two youngest kids. Their little girl loved seeing her mom in her dress! We created some beautiful portraits of William & Casey on that same balcony before moving along to photographing their large wedding party in the grand foyer of the Carriage House. The dual staircases and impressive chandelier in this space added a sense of elegance and tradition to those portraits. It's not every day we get to shoot in such a formal space - so we took full advantage of it!
It wasn't long before we moved outside to the ceremony space, perfectly landscaped and manicured into a colorful, secluded garden. William & Casey had built a custom wedding arch that featured wine barrels and floral elements; it was a breathtaking backdrop behind the two as they were officially married in front of all of their friends and family. They had bubbles readily available, and guests started to blow them as soon as the couple began their recession back down the aisle - their youngest daughter in tow!
Their cocktail hour was a beautiful event that spanned an outdoor patio, small ballroom, and the grand foyer. Guests enjoyed a custom cheesesteak bar, as well as fruits, cheeses, and crackers spread across a buffet. The Carriage House staff kept the drinks pouring as guests entered the reception space - a large, beautiful two-story ballroom that was prepared beautifully for the couple. Their friends and family were treated to great food, drinks, and plenty of smiles and laughter throughout all the traditional parts of the reception: the couple's first dance, their dances with their parents, and the toasts by the Maid of Honor and Best Man. The reception was a great mix of emotion and fun as the DJ kept the energy up through an evening of dances!
We wish the new Mr. & Mrs. Rasch the most sincere congratulations and best of luck as they enter into this new chapter of their lives. And we hope all of you enjoy seeing their beautiful wedding through our lens!
