Mountain Lakes House Wedding

Stacey and Tim

Wide angle portrait of the bride and groom in the woods on the property of the Mountain Lakes House.

If these newly married lovebirds look familiar to you…it’s because they have been featured on my blog, IG, Facebook, and Twitter several times since I shot their engagement shoot in Lambertville last year. Hint: so many of you who saw the posts commented on how much Tim looks like Justin Timberlake! Their engagement shoot was also the shoot where we were “attacked” by gnats! Lucky for everyone, there were no gnats the day of this stunning outdoor wedding at The Mountain Lakes House in Princeton, NJ. But…there were donuts! Check out the rest of the post to find out more!

Their love story is one that’s stood the test of time. For those of you that have seen their engagement post, you know they’ve been together since high school….so for them, their wedding was really a huge celebration of loving one another for so long. Bonus: their “fur baby” was there to join in the celebration! The “icing on the cake” of their wedding day, though, was the donut tower cake that served as their wedding cake! The stand itself was specially made by Tim and Stacey’s Dad!

The Mountain Lakes House in Princeton, New Jersey was the absolute perfect spot for Stacey and Tim to get married. It’s quaint, relaxed and has such an organic vibe to it – just like these two lovebirds. It’s gorgeous property actually has quite a history to it, too! At one time the lake was used to make ice to keep food cold before there was modern day refrigeration.

Thank you both for allowing me to be a part of your big day! You are an amazing couple and I can’t wait to see you continue to grow!
