Nicole and Daniel’s dreamy Park Chateau wedding was like stepping into a fairytale! The venue itself is a picture of elegance. Sitting on 15 rolling acres, Park Chateau Estate and Gardens features french architecture, romantic gardens, and an elegant ballroom. The picturesque setting is one of the many reasons Nicole fell in love with this stunning East Brunswick, NJ wedding venue.
The bride shared with me during their engagement session how much she loved the beautiful gardens and the architecture, stating that every time she stepped foot on the property she was blown away. It’s been almost a year since I captured Nicole and Daniel’s Jersey Shore Beach Engagement Session, and they were so excited to finally celebrate their wedding day at Park Chateau.
The venue also includes a stunning bridal suite with a balcony that overlooks the gardens, where Nicole and her crew readied. The bride loved the views from the balcony; it provided such a beautiful and relaxing setting.
Nicole’s gown was simply stunning. Embroidered floral details ran the length of the fitted mermaid style dress that featured a plunging neckline and a large train that fanned out at the bottom. Her elegant look was completed by a classic and timeless arrangement of white flowers. The bridesmaids wore chic, clean white satin bridesmaids’ dresses.
Dreamy Park Chateau Wedding
Nicole and Daniel shared an intimate first look out in the garden in front of the chapel. The location of their first look also allowed us to grab a few gorgeous portraits around the garden before the ceremony started.
The chapel at Park Chateau is a chic and modern space with white walls and exposed wooden beams. White rose petals lined the wedding aisle as Nicole walked to meet Daniel at the altar. The ceremony featured a wedding arch decorated in greenery and white roses.
As Nicole and Daniel exited the chapel as husband and wife, guests threw rose petals and celebrated alongside them. Then everyone moved into the grand ballroom! The large windows provide a perfect view out into the gardens. The exquisite chandeliers and trim work were just a few details that Nicole loved about this space. To highlight the elegance of the venue, the couple chose dreamy, classic details that included lots of white flowers and greenery. The appetizer table featured a large, stunning white flower tree centerpiece. Lit, white candles added to the romantic, fairytale like atmosphere.
The newlyweds took to the dance floor for their first dance, while fog filled the space around them. Later in the evening, Nicole changed into a fun reception dress. The chic white dress had a high leg slit and feather trim adding a bit of playfulness. The rest of the evening unfolded wonderfully, filled with endless love and laughter.
