Intimate Fall Wedding at the Inn at Millrace Pond with Mary and Ken, Hope, New Jersey

The Inn at Millrace Pond is a beautiful venue located in Hope, New Jersey, a historic small town of agriculture, beautiful landscapes, rich history, and culture.

The grounds of the Inn at Millrace Pond have hints of red, baby blues, and yellows in it’s architectural design. These colors were so precisely accented throughout Mary and Ken’s photography collection. Mary and Ken designed such a beautiful day one-on-one with their team of vendors. As soon as I approached the venue, I was in awe. The foliage, sights, and just the minimal decor was breathtaking. Mary, chose her color palette to accent this venue so beautifully and worked with a team of such talented vendors to craft a simple and elegant wedding day for her and Ken’s intimate wedding. This venue is managed by Frungillo Caterers and if you’re looking for a unique, rustic colonial inn in the heart of the mountains, I would highly recommend this New Jersey venue!

Just a few of my favorite and unique details from this day that Mary and Ken chose, were Ken’s burgundy tux, Mary’s gown plus details, and the incredible color combination. Ken wore a burgundy tux, black classic shirt underneath his tux, burgundy pocket square, burgundy plus patterned bowtie, and brown leather dress shoes to accent this bow tie. See black dress shirt (pictured below).

Additionally, she had beautiful white gold accessories such as her Badgley Mischka Bridal shoes, and beautiful rings from Robbins Delaware Diamonds to accent her ivory gown from Jay West Bridal.

The unique textures in fabric and alternating style of bridesmaid gowns moved the viewers eye throughout the canvas.

Peggy Patton of The Flower Mill created handcrafted bridal, bridesmaids bouquets, and unique groom and groomsmen boutonnières that accented the venue and its beautiful grounds that is cared for by Frungillo Caterers so well. Their aroma was a true experience in addition to their colors against this beautiful backdrop of foliage. The orange ranunculus, burgundy dahlias, greenery, and rose pink florals were all handpicked, placed precisely, and hand crafted with artistry by Peggy and her devoted team.

The foliage was rich on their special day, accented their florals so precisely accented the beautiful grounds of their wedding at the Inn at Millrace Pond at Frungillo Caterers.

I am truly still in awe of the colors of this collection and their day was so special. Thank you so much for having me to photograph your special day. What an honor!

Congratulations, Mary and Ken!
