Married between Christmas and New Year's Eve, Stephanie and Tony, a military couple, were married at Eagle Oaks Country Club in Farmingdale, NJ. Their elegant wedding was captured by The Fox And The Hare Photography and was simply stunning, with a magical little nod to Christmas, brought to life in the décor that blended the season and the celebration seamlessly together.
A Message from the Photographer:
Stephanie & Tony had an intimate church ceremony followed by the most fun reception at Eagle Oaks. The church still had Christmas trees, twinkle lights and poinsettias all around making their ceremony feel especially magical.
Steph's vision was for an elegant, traditional wedding with a subtle wintry theme. Eagle Oaks is so beautiful on its own, so they didn't want to go overboard with the decorations. The colors were dark green and ivory. The flowers in the bouquets by Garden State Floral Design were betwixt little holly berries, pine needles and pine cones. The decorative nutcrackers provided by Eagle Oaks were just a little added bonus in the reception space.
Navy Love, both Steph & Tony are in the Navy, and are based in Florida right now. Therefore, it was very important for them to come up and be with family in New Jersey. A third of their guests have been or are actively serving in the Navy, as well. What was really important for them was that their guests, who had traveled from literally all over the world to be with them on the big day, were part of the photos. They didn't particularly care to be the center of attention, but really just wanted us to showcase all of the guests and the togetherness. We were honored to do so. It was noteworthy that this navy couple chose blue up-lighting in the reception space to represent their lives together. We were so glad we could document all the love and happiness in the room. Congratulations again Steph & Tony!
