Brit and Jon met at Manalapan High School where Brit was hired as a long term substitute for a physical education teacher. Jon was the high school football coach.
They hit it off immediately, and they found that there days were intertwined because Brit had all of Jon’s students as her students. She soon noticed that Jon was always popping his head into her class to “check in” on his players he would say! It soon became clear that he was actually checking on Brit! They soon started dating and after four years Jon decided to proposeBrit and Jon knew that their celebration would be a big one!
They wanted a place that would have a rustic/romantic feel and to be big enough where they could invite their big families and friends. They went to visit Bear Brook Valley and totally fell in love with this venue.
They decided to get married in a local church near Bear Brook and the rest of the day was spent at the venue. The guys had so much fun that morning playing different outdoor fun games and the girls had a blast in the gorgeous bridal suite.
Brit has such beautiful taste and her wedding details were perfect. One of the things that I love so much on a bride’s wedding day is creating some magic with her details!
Once ready, we all left for the church. It was a beautiful day with much sunshine and perfect temperatures. That always is such a gift especially on a wedding day. After our return, we had some fun exploring all of the beautiful spots at Bear Brook Valley for family portraits and of course, for Brit and Jon’s special portraits. Seeing it was July 7th, they wanted to surprise their guests with a very special fireworks display by Advanced Pyrotechnics that did the most incredible job! It was so much fun photographing Brit and Jon as they watched the display!
If the reception was not special enough, Jon’s dad surprised him and Brit by hiring the amazing lead singer from the rock band “Creed” as the special entertainment. WOW!! It was truly a night to remember!
