Renault Winery Wedding | Spring Wedding | Tabitha and Anthony

Renault Winery spring wedding. I have nothing but good things to say about Tabitha and Anthony’s wedding.  The historic winery in Egg Harbor township New Jersey is a gorgeous venue.  The outdoor ceremony area has a great view which creates such an awesome backdrop for ceremonies. The staff is phenomenal and took care of any issues that came up.  There are so many great areas for photos at this venue that it is truly a photographer’s dream location.  We used this location for their engagement session as well.

Tabitha and Anthony’s day started out a bit rainy.  We all were disappointed that the outdoor ceremony may have to take place indoors. Tabitha and Anthony had their hearts set on an outdoor ceremony so they could have a dove release to celebrate their son and enjoy the surrounding beauty of the winery. Someone must have heard our prayers because the rain stopped, and the sun started to peek out a couple of hours before the ceremony was set to start.  Yay, the ceremony could happen outdoors!

Spring Wedding ceremony at Renault winery

I was able to spend time with Tabitha, her bridesmaids and the moms in the getting ready room at the venue. I captured all the detail photos and getting ready photos.  Then Tabitha put on her gorgeous dress…. oh, my goodness….such a beautiful bride.  Her dress was perfect for her. The hair and makeup team did such a great job making everyone look fabulous.  Anthony and his groomsmen met us at the venue for some photos before the ceremony. The ring bearer was a little shy.  See if you can find him in the guys group photo.

When the ceremony started and the venue’s doors opened, Tabitha walked out. Her guests gasped while watching her walk down the steps. It was simply perfect with the sun shining and her veil blowing in the wind.  Anthony was in tears when he saw his bride.  The ceremony was magical, and you could hear and see this couples love everywhere.  They were able to release the dove for their son, Karsen. Their son had passed away shortly after he was born.  It was a special moment for Tabitha, Anthony and their families to be able to honor him during their ceremony.

Cheers from the guests

After the kiss, their guests cheered. Everyone at the wedding was so excited for these two finally getting married. We were able to get family and bridal photos outdoors since the weather was still good.  While we were taking photos, Anthony pulled me aside and told me about a little surprise he had for Tabitha.  They were going to dance in a cloud for their first dance.  Tabitha thought it would be nice but thought it was too much to spend.  Anthony knew their first dance was going to be special and made it happen. One of the best moments from their day was the first dance as it was truly their first dance.  With covid, they weren’t able to get out and have opportunities to dance together before the wedding.  Tabitha loved how well they meshed during the dance.

The Vendor Team

Tabitha and Anthony put together a great team of vendors for their day.  The event coordinators, Denise and Kailey, were fantastic! They made sure everything flowed and took care of everything they needed.  Tabitha’s hair and makeup team, Jennifer Surovick and Tracy Sothen, made the girls look radiant. The flowers were gorgeous!! Driftwood Florist made Tabitha’s dreams of  romantic florals and greenery a reality.  Mondo Video Productions captured the moments in video and were fun guys to work with.  They love what they do, and it shows in their attention to detail. The DJ from Dinardo Brothers Entertainment got the crowd moving and took care of creating the “cloud” for Tabitha and Anthony’s first dance. And I can’t forget to mention where Tabitha purchased her beautiful wedding gown, Dress 2 Impress.

 

Advice for future brides:

Tabitha said ” In the end, all the details will come together. Don’t stress about it. The most important people will be there to show their love and support. Make sure you have friends and family around you that love you unconditionally.”

 

Tabitha and Anthony are two of the sweetest people I have met.  I enjoyed getting to know them and to be part of their love story.  When you click, you just click. ha-ha. I look forward to seeing them again as their story unfolds and to capture family moments to come.  May they have a lifetime of love, laughter and happiness.
