With a gorgeous lake and beautiful trees in bloom, the Holmdel Park and David C. Shaw Arboretum in NJ made a stunning backdrop for a special day.7459 7512

Photographer Marie Di Raimondo of Alluria Photography captured the beauty of our model bride from NJ, Nicole Celebre. Nicole, currently living in CA, has been modeling for 4 years and always dreamed of being part of a gorgeous styled wedding shoot. In a long, sequined cut out dress with a high jeweled neckline by B Darlin, while wearing her mother’s family heirloom ring, Nicole made an amazing blushing bride. She styled her own hair and did her makeup selecting Tarte Cosmetics for this day.

The colorful standout bouquet was actually a do-it-yourself bargain! Marie went to the local market and selected several small bunches of bright flowers. The morning of the shoot, she arranged a mixture of them together with wire, cut them all to length and wrapped with a ribbon. Instant custom bouquet!7600758973847204

To introduce props into the theme, Nicole purchased a large gold rimmed mirror at a department store. It was then hung from a tree branch in the park. By capturing many angles of her looking in the mirror, it brings to mind the getting-ready stage of the soon to be Mrs. inside a bridal suite. Instead it was brought outside into nature!


Vintage hot pink high heels brought out the color in the flowers and gave a pop to the dress as she elegantly walked across the arched garden bridge.764576427628761876197626

All the details together made for a stunning collaboration of outdoor wedding inspiration!
