Lillian and Andrew’s Wedding at the Crossed Keys Estate in Andover, NJ | NJ Wedding Photographer

Lillian and Andrew’s heartfelt wedding day was hosted at the Crossed Keys Estate in Andover, NJ. Their wedding day includes a day of family-fun, a vibrant color palette accenting their joyful, fun-loving personalities, and a one-of-a-kind love story captured at the Crossed Keys Estate, Andover by Crossed Keys Estate NJ Wedding Photographer, Michelle Behre.

 

The Couple

The couple are fun-loving, joyful, and energetic. They love sharing time together with their best friends, their families, and enjoying athletics, and the outdoors. 

The Proposal

Lillian and Andrew began dating in elementary school and the groom asked for Lillian’s hand in marriage two years prior to their wedding. Andrew designed an absolutely beautiful custom heirloom engagement ring. To make his proposal extra special, he incorporated their family and friends, the people that they love the most to celebrate by their side!

Their wedding day was set on a beautiful, early summer day in August. Their day included the people that they love most, a day of fun with their family, and best friends celebrating their very special love.

The couple’s color palette included bright, sunny mustard yellows, contrasting with baby pinks, tropical oranges, an abundance of textures of lush greenery. Their gorgeous color palette was designed and coordinated surrounding Andrew’s custom burgundy suit designed at Indochino, Short Hills

A few highlights captured include Lillian’s bridals and the couple’s first look. Her florals by the Crossed Keys Designs team accented the textures and the jewels of the Justin Alexander gown from Bridal Suite Boutique. Her makeup is done to absolute “natural” bridal perfection by Makeup and Lashes by Joyce and her hair design, so so elegant and soft by Kelly & Co
