Dyana & Mark’s Skylands Manor Wedding – A Fairly Tale Venue.

What a privilege to share this day and an enchanted Skylands Manor Wedding with Dyana and Mark.  Dyana was simply stunning and selected the perfect Cinderella gown befitting a princess for a wedding at the Castle at Skylands Manor.  It was really important to Dyana that Mark see her for the first time when she was walking down the aisle to be his wife. So, they forewent the first look and decided to wait until after the ceremony. Later they had us create some fantastic images for them during the cocktail hour.  You can never have enough time to shoot at Skylands Manor, the grounds are beautiful and photo opportunities are plentiful. This is especially true if the groom’s Dad is late to the ceremony!  Yep!  Future bride and grooms, let your guests know it is very easy to miss the road leading up to the castle and end up in New York!  Knowing we were up against the clock and that daylight was fading fast, Mark asked me, “What should we do, should we start the ceremony?”  Being a father myself,  without hesitation, I said, “You HAVE to wait for your Dad.” You CANNOT start without him! It will work out and we will still have some time to create images.  Mark’s Dad finally arrived, and although we were a slightly rushed with just a little light left, we were still able to capture a few keepers.

From that point on the day went just as could be expected from the outdoor ceremony to the celebration in the Castle! Our congratulations and thanks for letting us be part of your wedding day. Bob and Lola Lorusso.

Special Thanks to Linda and the staff at Frungillo Caterers who made this a perfect Skylands Manor Wedding day! We hope you enjoy this sampling of wedding images.
