Park Chateau Fall Wedding in East Brunswick, NJ | Michelle and AJ

Michelle and AJ’s elegant Park Chateau fall wedding was an event to remember! This stunning New Jersey venue located in East Brunswick is one of my favorites! The meticulously kept grounds are beautiful during every season, but I loved  seeing it transformed during this fall wedding. Burnt orange colored mums decorated the garden entrance to the mansion. Beautiful golden yellow and orange autumn leaves could be seen in the background painting a beautiful backdrop to Michelle and AJ’s magical wedding day in early November! Their gorgeous wedding day included a color palette of neutral tones, including, white, blush, and beautiful greens. The light colors complimented the classic elegance of the dreamy Park Chateau wedding venue. 

Park Chateau Fall Wedding

Michelle and AJ’s day started with them getting ready in separate suites.  Michelle was a stunning bride! My favorite detail was Michelle’s dress, which was designed by Martina Liana, and featured floral appliqués, elegant ruffles, and a sophisticated neckline. After getting ready, the couple shared an intimate, romantic first look in the Estate’s front garden. The stately mansion features highlights of French architecture adding to the venue’s romantic elegance. 

Seeing Michelle and AJ share this private moment together was extra special as the pair was originally scheduled to wed in October 2020, but rescheduled their wedding due to the pandemic, as did many other couples.  Needless to say, the couple and everyone in attendance was overflowing with joy and excitement for this long-awaited moment.

Their Love Story

Just like my husband and I, Michelle and AJ met and fell in love in college.  After 6 years of dating, AJ proposed to Michelle at their favorite restaurant, Café Matisse, where he led her to a private room with a classical violinist playing Michelle’s favorite song, ‘A Thousand Years’ by Christina Perri.  AJ surprised Michelle with six dozen lavender roses, and got down on one knee and asked her to marry him. I loved hearing about AJ’s thoughtful and romantic gesture! 

There is no doubt that these two are meant for each other! It was evident in the glances they stole at one another, the smiles and laughter they shared, and the bubble of excitement surrounding them. It was an honor to document their dreamy wedding day and celebrate these two coming together! 

Congratulations to Michelle and AJ on their stunning Park Chateau fall wedding!
