weddings at Grounds for Sculpture

I’ve had the privilege and the opportunity to photograph many weddings at Grounds for Sculpture in Hamilton NJ on several occasions. The photographic opportunities are everywhere you look. Whether it's the sprawling, beautifully manicured grounds, or the unusual sculptures from amazing artists throughout the facility, or simply just the beautiful light juxtaposed against the gorgeous trees, it seems I'm always able to make beautiful images at this event. Wedding photography at Grounds for Sculpture is a treat for me since the entire wedding day- from the wedding preparation, ceremony, portraiture, and the reception are all held within the confines of this beautiful property. This image, taken during a first look on their wedding day, was shot with my Nikon D4S, Nikkor 70-200mm lens, and I used the beauty of the harsh midday sun to backlight my bride and groom. The emotions are quite real. The first look at Grounds for Sculpture wedding can be set in may different locations. The choices are endless, and I chose this location because of direction of the light. The receptions at Grounds for Sculpture are usually held in Rats restaurant within the Grounds for Sculpture property, and their food is exquisite. If you’re looking for a venue that has it all, I believe that Grounds for Sculpture weddings will provide you with everything you could ask from a wedding venue. Their ceremonies are held in a beautiful open air amphitheater which looks like ancient ruins. The sun drenches the area in gorgeous late day light, and the ambiance is spectacular. It’s hard to believe that we’re still in New Jersey :-)
