Elegant Pastel Summer Wedding at The Hamilton Manor

May 3, 2024

Summer weddings are always some of my favorites to photograph because I love the heat! Freya and Mike had a hot one. One of my favorite photos from this set is Freya drinking a frappe in her wedding gown – we grabbed some on the way to the venue because it was smoldering out and we figured she could use a treat!

This was such an incredibly fun day to photograph. Just love these two, and their family and friends. It truly was a flawless day filled with so much happiness. Freya’s first look with her Dad and brother was so special and emotional – and Mike’s reaction to Freya walking down the aisle was just the sweetest!

We had absolutely perfect light at the gorgeous Hamilton Manor for all of their portraits!

I’ll let Freya tell you how they met in her own words!

“Michael and I met through mutual friends in college when home on our summer break. Our relationship become long distance in the fall with Michael at University of Maine and me at JMU (over 800 miles away from each other) – however, the distance didn’t hold us back. We were long distance until we graduated in 2019 and have since settled in Hunterdon County where our families both live.”
