Set in the picturesque countryside of Peapack-Gladstone, New Jersey, the Mansion at Natirar provided the perfect backdrop for their special day.

The Mansion at Natirar offered the perfect balance of elegance, natural beauty, and excellent service, making it the ideal location for a summer wedding.
Read on to discover more about Jill and Christian's special day and how the Mansion at Natirar helped make their wedding dreams a reality.

A beautiful summer day celebrating true love at the Natirar estate

As the early afternoon sun glistened over the Mansion at Natirar, Jill was surrounded by her closest friends and loved ones, all eager to share in the excitement of her big day.
Champagne flowed and laughter filled the room as everyone chatted about the wonder of weddings and fated meetings. 

Jill and Christian had met nearly a decade prior at a summer camp as young counselors. Neither had the intention to find a summer romance, let alone continue their relationship across state lines, since he was a Florida boy, and she was a Jersey girl.

Unbenounced to them, fate had different plans, plans that included endless late night phone calls, falling madly in love, and a Mansion at Natirar wedding many years later.   

The Beginning

Popping champagne and confetti at the beautiful grounds of Natirar

After some photos outside in her bridal robe, Jill and her mother went into the bridal suite to get ready for the first look. Her mother helped her into her stunning Tom Sebastien wedding gown in the bright room, carefully adjusting the intricate beading as the final touches were added to her hair and makeup before she turned to see herself in the full length mirrors.

The result was a stunning bride, radiating natural beauty and joy as she prepared to marry the love of her life, knowing it had been worth the wait.

Meanwhile, Christian relaxed with his favorite people in the grandeur of the Mansion's common room, eagerly awaiting the first look with his bride-to-be before guests arrived.

Getting Ready

A sweet moment before the ceremony at Natirar Mansion

The historic building was the spectacular setting for this special moment, as the couple met in front of the grand front doors, taking in the stunning architecture and endless nature that surrounded them. New Jersey is known as the Garden state, afterall. 

As they turned to face each other, their love and anticipation for the day ahead was palpable. Christian was floored by his bride in her show-stopping Tom Sebastian gown, and she truly sparkled from the inside out. It was clear that the Mansion at Natirar was the perfect venue for their wedding celebration, in a similar way that they were perfect for each other. 

The first Look

The Portraits

Elegant and everlasting wedding style

As the couple exchanged their first look on the picturesque grounds of the Mansion at Natirar, the afternoon sun cast a warm glow over the scene, creating the perfect backdrop for gorgeous and everlasting wedding photos.

The couple, both impeccably dressed and exuding classic elegance, were captured in a series of editorial style photos that matched their fashion sense and refined tastes.

The couple opted not to have a formal wedding party and with prior planning and photography timeline creation, we took the opportunity to capture a series of family photos before the start of their ceremony, which is something we highly recommend for all weddings.

The stunning architecture and expansive mountain views at Natirar served as the perfect backdrop, adding a touch of grandeur to the already beautiful memories.

The Signing of the Ketubah

Honoring new beginnings and ancient wedding traditions in New Jersey

The signing of the ketubah was an intimate moment shared amongst family and friends, surrounded by the natural light that poured in through the floor to ceiling windows of Natirar.

The couple surrounded by their closest loved ones as they signed the traditional Jewish marriage contract, symbolizing the start of their new lives together.

The Ceremony

An outdoor wedding ceremony at The Mansion at Natirar

The ceremony was outdoors, following a modern version of Jewish traditions overlooking the lush greenery of Natirar Park, on a sunny day with clear blue skies.

The setting was nothing short of breathtaking and the feeling of the ceremony was enhanced by the natural surroundings. As they exchanged vows, family sat in the first rows, with friends witnessing the couple's commitment to one another.

A standout moment was the breaking of the glass, where the couple completed the traditional Jewish ritual that symbolizes the sanctity of the moment, with rolling hills in the distance and sunlight glittering off the mansion's windows all coming together to create a beautiful scene.

The Cocktail Hour

A sushi bar, passed hors d'oeuvres, and lovely memories 

Guests experienced light live music, signature drinks, passed hors d'oeuvre and an refined sushi bar inside the estate with the sounds of laughter, and guests reminiscing together as the sun began to set over the historic mansion. 

Guests explored the beautiful grounds overlooking the Natirar park as the sun slowly set, and the moon showed herself in the cloudless sky, the began making their way into the grand ballroom.

The Reception

A night of love, laughter, and reminiscing at the Mansion at Natirar

Jill and Christian entered their reception hand-in-hand with joy radiating from them as they started their first dance as husband and wife to Have I Told You Lately by Van Morrison. Parent dances and the Hora took place as the dedicated staff at Natirar served the first course. 

The father of the bride blessed the challah before busting moves to Blue Suede Shoes, and touching words were shared before living in the moment on the dance floor. Guests sang the lyrics of every song and friends brought back fun dance routines from their camp and college days. 

The bride and groom has a private cake cutting and headed back to the dance floor for the rest of the night, laughing, dancing, and being so in love.
