Megan & James :: Ballyowen Golf Club Wedding Photos

Everything about Megan and James’s big day was perfect: the weather, their smiles (which is most certainly appropriate, since Megan just graduated from dentistry school a few months prior to their big day), the dancing…the list goes on! All of this perfection made for these stunning Ballyowen Golf Club wedding photos!

Megan and Jim are super cute, funny, and sugary sweet together (without the cavities, of course!), and I love working with them. I was so excited for their big day, as we had such an amazing time shooting their engagement session, and knew their wedding was going to be just as amazing…and it was! One of my favorites: Megan made so many of the wedding details, such as the placecards, herself!

The Ballyowen Golf Club in Northern New Jersey is part of the Crystal Springs Resorts, a year-round resort spanning hundreds of acres. This course in particular makes for stunning photos with the mountains of Northern New Jersey in the background, and has the perfect size clubhouse and facilities for a wedding that is not too small, and not too big.

Thank you so much to both Megan and Jim, their families, and their dancing friends for such a memorable day! I wish these lovebirds nothing but a lifetime of love!

How did you two meet and fall in love?

Jim and I met over six years ago while we were both in college at his fraternity house. It took several months and failed relationships for us both to finally come together. Jim said I love you first, but I knew I loved him very early on.

What was your favorite memory from your wedding day?

My favorite memory of my wedding day was walking down the aisle of the church and seeing all the faces of our family and friends, beaming with joy for us. The moment I spotted him I saw he was crying which then caused me to cry, followed by my mom, his mom, my aunt, my coworker and just about everyone in the room! The most happy tears I have ever seen and that is an indescribable feeling.

What piece of advice would you give to future couples planning their big day?

My best piece of advice is to not stress over things out of your control. There were issues with my dress, transportation, flowers, you name it,  but at the end of the day the most important thing is that you are marrying your beat friend, and no one is going to know if something is slightly different than what you originally planned.
