Any wedding where the groom gives his future wife the gift of 9mm ammo is all right by me. Entertaining, yes – but also meaningful, because it was for a much-anticipated, sweet little James Bond-esque Walther PPK that was recently passed down to Bridget by her father. This was just one of the many heartfelt moments that made this day truly special for everyone. It was a joy to be a part of it, especially supporting so many places I’ve called home over the years.

Bridget and Jim’s day was a river valley tour of sorts, that included: home in Ringoes, The Inn at Lambertville Station in Lambertville, Salon G in Sergeantsville, Our Lady of Good Counsel in Ewing, culminating high above the valley at the Strawberry Hill Mansion on Baldpate Mountain. The reception featured catering by New Hope’s Bitter Bob’s, and the lively music of GForce Band, led by Joe Grillo. I have a huge respect for and greatly appreciate Bridget and Jim’s desire to support local businesses – as they chose me, in part, because I’m based in Hopewell, where both Bridget and Jim work. Look closely at their details – so personal and absolutely perfect (like the name tags of many generations of police officers from both sides of their families, displayed proudly on the bouquets). Love.

Many thanks to my good friend and exceptional photographer, Carolina Wahnish Rivera for her beautiful work as second photographer.
