Wilmington Country Club New Year’s Eve Wedding Photographer – Congratulations Kim and Chris!

What better way to ring in the New Year than at a beautiful party with happy, in-love people?  Kim and Chris were married in a gorgeous candle-lit ceremony in the historic First Presbyterian Church of Salem, NJ.  Kim is the 5th generation to attend the church, so lots of family history in that lovely church.  While the idea of turning off ALL the lights sounded like a bit of an obstacle to ceremony pictures, the candle-lit church was so romantic that it was worth it.  And the pictures capture that atmosphere perfectly. The reception was held at the Wilmington Country Club and a fun sparkler exit, soon after midnight, capped off the wedding and New Year celebration.  Kim and Chris are a great match, and it was such a joy to photograph their wedding day!  Congratulations you two!

The pearl necklace was a gift to Kim’s grandmother for her engagement and has been passed down ever since. 
There just aren’t interesting place like this in DC for shooting portraits.  Love the colors and textures of this old train. 
Now that’s a kiss! 🙂
Happy New Year! I loved working with this family again! (Having previously been privileged to shoot Kim’s brother John’s wedding  – click John and Lauren for their wedding pictures.)
