Skyview Golf Club Wedding

Jul 23

Nicole and Michael

I knew Nicole and Michael were going to have an amazing wedding day right from the start as I was going through the planning process with them. I mean, how could they not with the venue they picked out, the details they had planned…and an extra special guest that was going to be in attendance! Read on to see who it was…

Nicole and Michael are a fantastic couple: they really are a compliment to each other. They are fun and sweet and make the perfect pair. Although, they are actually part of a family of three! They have, and when you keep scrolling you will see, the most handsome son EVER! “Mini” Michael Jr. is sooooo adorable and was loving the camera, just as much as the camera was loving him on his Mom and Dad’s big day. I mean, go take a peek at his little shoes! And his little tongue that peeks out when he smiles for pictures! Michael Jr. made the perfect extra special guest for his parents wedding day. Seeing the three of them together on such a special day made my heart do a happy dance.

If you are looking for a wedding venue in northern New Jersey that will give you views to swoon over from the start of the ceremony, through the finish of the reception, look no further. The Skyview Golf Club in Sussex County offers a ceremony location with panoramic view of the Hamburg Mountains, an outdoor terrace for cocktail hour, and of course, the ballroom with floor to ceiling windows so no one misses the view or a gorgeous sunset. The staff is amazing and the food incredible; what’s not to love about all they have to offer?

Thank you Nicole, Michael, and Michael Jr., for allowing me to be a part of your special day! I am so grateful to have been able to be there to capture all of your love and happiness for you to cherish for years to come.

How did you two meet and fall in love?

We met at a party in New Brunswick thru mutual friends and became close when our other friends started dating. I (Mike) always had a crush on Nicole since the day I met her. We didn’t start dating til a couple years later. Mike confessed his love for me one night and the rest was history.

Was there a theme behind your wedding day? What colors did you choose? What ‘feeling’ were you going for?

We didn’t really have a theme we just wanted the overall vibe to be romantic and fun! Our colors were pinks, blues and ivory.

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

We would say just enjoy every minute of it! And do not stress the small stuff because when the day is finally here, none of that will matter!
