Old Tappan Manor Wedding | Hilary and Jason | New Jersey Wedding Photographers
Our 2017 wedding season has officially ended. While we are sad to see it go, we are happy it ended on a bang! Hilary and Jason's Old Tappan Manor wedding was such a treat to photograph. Both Jason and Hilary are Disney, Star Wars and Harry Potter fans so their wedding was a perfect mix of nerd and fancy. Maybe "fanerdy"? The Old Tappan Manor has an unassuming appearance, you'd never know what was inside, and we were blown away! In a neighborhood surrounded by beautiful houses, the manor has a gorgeous manicured lawn with lots of beautiful photo opportunities. But once inside, the ballroom is set to stun! Gorgeous lighting, large chandeliers, and the photographers dream - a perfectly reflective marble floor.
Hilary and Jason are such a fun couple and incorporated their love of all things Disney, Star Wars, and Harry Potter into their wedding day. Their whole relationship started when they met each other in Disneyworld! And then the proposal, again in Disneyworld! This time with a little help from friends and some Jawas. So it's only natural that the ceremony music involved Disney tunes and music from Harry Potter.
Hilary and Jason decided to have a first look and we have to say, it was the most amazing first look! Jason just gushed over his bride to be! It was really the sweetest moment we had the great fortune to capture.
In traditional Jewish fashion, their ceremony started with Jason escorting both of his parents down the aisle followed by Hilary with her parents. The ceremony was presided over by their Rabbi with a great sense of humor and interjected some stories about the bride and groom into the ceremony.
After the guests yelled Mazel Tov the party started! Appetizers were served in a secondary room while the staff flipped the dining room over for the reception with amazing speed! Once the whole room was set and lit purple, the band keyed up an epic score, again using Disney and Star Wars to introduce the wedding party.
Many delicious courses later the guests were up and dancing and entertained by Hilary and Jason's best men and maid of honors speeches. There were so many touching moments throughout the reception! A few that stood out to us was a special song request by Hilary's father, dedicated to her mother. Hilary's parents got up and danced for the entire song and were joined by Hilary and Jason. Another super fun moment was when Hilary got up and performed a special tap dance for her groom. Having been together many years, Jason still had never seen Hilary dance and so he finally did!
Mid-way through the reception all of the guests were treated to an amazing Venitian room filled to the ceiling with deserts. With everyone stuffed to the max and having had an awesome time, just like in Cinderella, the party ended at midnight.
Congrats again Hilary and Jason and have so much fun on your adventures!
