Rustic Style Commitment Ceremony: Amanda + Kristen


Taking place at the very scenic Schooleys Mountain Lodge in Long Valley, New Jersey this commitment ceremony feature a beautiful lake and woodland backdrops, rustic chic decor and above all a sense of love. Shot by one of our favorite sponsored vendorsErin H Photography  along with John DeFiora Photography, this commitment ceremony was too special not to share. One of my favorite details about this wedding is the simple wood directional sign, I am a sucker for these at every wedding!

    What a beautiful WEDDING! I generally like this site but am a bit disappointed that they chose to label this a “commitment ceremony” when the second picture shown clearly says “Amanda and Kristin’s WEDDING” I am planning my WEDDING to my future wife and fingers crossed it will be a legally valid civil contract between two people madly in love who work hard at their relationship (much like the couple pictured above) that is recognized by both state and local government also known as a marriage, though either way we will treat it as such. Ok I;m off my soap box and once again beautiful wedding! Congratulations!

    Beautiful all around. It was a memorable and touching ceremony, followed by a great party. Everyone lucky enough to be with Amanda and Kristen on their wedding day got to witness firsthand their true and unending love for each other. The amazing photography captured the day just perfectly. Erin (Erin H Photography) and John (John DeFiora Photography) are true masters of their craft. I only wish I could rewind time to my own wedding so that I could have had John and Erin do the photography.

    Beautiful love, beautiful people, great friends, great memories!
