Edgewood Country Club is a luxurious wedding venue in Riverdale, NJ. Immaculate grounds, multi-room cocktail hours and a modern ballroom with a massive dance floor… it’s an obvious pick for any wedding. As a Wedding Photographer based out of the Hudson Valley, NY but traveling all over this trip to Riverdale, NJ to photograph at Edgewood County Club was an absolute delight. I am so excited to show you how ROMANTICALLY the grounds at Edgewood Country Club photograph. But enough about stunning grounds lets talk about the most stunning couple.
Emotions were high, which is not atypical for a wedding day but this was different. Tom was involved in a VERY serious accident during the wedding planning process and truth be told, its a miracle that we were able to witness this day. Because of this unique trial Emily and Tom had a level of gratefulness that I have never witnessed at a wedding, it was tangible. Every glance at each other said overwhelmingly ” I am so happy we are here”, it truly made me choke up a few times. Emily and Tom will always be a favorite of mine for this very reason. Goodness I love weddings that I know will stand the test of time.
Emily got ready at her and Toms new home. The moms, the bridesmaids, the friends everyone was so GIGGLY and excited to be there including me. When we arrived at the Church I finally got to see Tom and he was EAR TO EAR smiling. Toms dads eyes spoke of gratefulness as he helped make sure Tom was ready, I could’nt keep my eyes dry this wedding. As Emily walked towards Tom tears flowed, smiles gleamed and that is how I would describe this wedding. Once it was official we headed to Edgewood Country Club and the grounds graced us with blue skies and wispy clouds with golden sunlight for their portraits. A few very emotional dances and speeches later we finally got to celebrate.
My hands down favorite memory (which you will see below) was watching Emily and Tom sing at the very top of their lungs along with ” I Will Survive”. The whole room sang it along with them as a declaration of Toms determination, Im teary eyed thinking about it. Emily and Tom, I could never thank you enough for allowing me to look into your lives this way. I am better for it. I know that nothing will separate what God has joined together in you. Congratulations!
This was a very special moment. Emily is very close with her family, watching her walk out of her home and towards her dad was poetic.
I met with Tom right before the ceremony as he was putting on all of the finishing touches. I just love these two!
In the introduction I told you that the grounds of Edgewood Country Club are ASTOUNDING! All within a short gold club ride away you encounter lush fields, beautiful trees, and open fields. Just a Wedding Photographers dream!
No wedding is a single person affair and everyone who works so hard on a wedding deserves to be credited. Make sure to follow these stellar vendors and when it is your turn to stroll the aisle give them a call!
