When the bride is a Broadway performer, you know the wedding is going to be a spectacular production. And when she’s performing every night while planning the wedding, you know she is impressively organized and all the details are going to be on point! That couldn’t be more true about Becca! I was blown away by her planning, thoughtfulness, and organization! Becca and Corey’s elegant Ryland Inn wedding was beautiful in every way possible.
Becca and Corey, a genuinely kind and hilariously funny couple, got married on a sunny and gorgeous springtime day at The Ryland Inn in Whitehouse Station, New Jersey. The Ryland Inn is one of my favorite NJ venues—it’s an elegant equestrian estate with over 200 years of history. It is exquisite inside and out.
There were so many beautiful details to capture while Becca was getting ready. Her bouquet, an arrangement of creamy, soft pink roses, matched her hexagonal ring box perfectly. Bridesmaids in mismatched blush-toned gowns were great company, filling the room with laughter as they helped Becca get dressed.
Becca wore gorgeous peep-toe Badgley Mischka shoes with mesmerizing jewels that studded the back. Then there was her wedding dress! A stunning ballgown style was a classic Hayley Paige design with a plunging neckline and lots of airy movement in the skirt. She completed her look with natural glam makeup and a romantic half-up hairstyle, donning both a hair accessory and a dreamy cathedral-length veil. She looked truly stunning.
Elegant Ryland Inn Wedding
After a joyful first look, it was time to get married. Becca and Corey exchanged heartfelt vows in an outdoor ceremony on the grounds of The Ryland Inn. A wooden wedding arch decorated with eucalyptus and abundant pink and white blooms was a striking backdrop to the ceremony.
Following their ceremony, Becca and Corey joined their guests for cocktails, dinner, and lots of dancing in the Coach House, Ryland Inn’s elegant barn style event space. Low arrangements in silver speckled vases complemented the floral theme from the ceremony. These same blooms also garnished the four layered wedding cake, a sweet ending to their perfect day.
