A Classic Winter Wedding At Park Chateau

We’re so excited to share Heidi & Eric’s classic Winter wedding at Park Chateau Estate and Gardens! The details were classic, timeless and perfect for this sunny December day. Winter weddings have a magical allure, and Park Chateau proved to be the perfect backdrop for Heidi and Eric’s special day. From the regal bridal suite to the enchanting gardens, every detail contributed to a celebration filled with love, emotion, and magical moments. Heidi’s day began in the regal bridal suite at Park Chateau, setting the tone for the enchanting day. The estate’s thoughtful design provided a picturesque backdrop for capturing Heidi’s details, accessories, and getting-ready moments. The elegant ambiance of the suite added an extra layer of charm to the photos. Once she slipped into her Martina Liana gown and made her finishing touches, it was time for first look!

First look took place in the gardens on site. Heidi & Eric’s genuine reactions were so sweet and the love between them shined. The gardens at Park Chateau offered a stunning array of backdrops. From lush greenery to interesting architecture, everywhere you look at this New Jersey wedding venue is picture perfect. Bridesmaids wore mixed-style dresses that complemented the winter theme. The diverse styles added a touch of uniqueness to the visual story. Groomsmen rocked timeless black tuxes, which was a perfect choice for the vibe of the day.

Later, the chapel on-site served as the perfect setting for Heidi and Eric to say their “I do’s.” Adorned with winter greenery and candles, the ceremony was a vision of elegance and romance. The intimate setting provided a warm and inviting atmosphere for the couple to exchange vows.  Following the ceremony, the newlyweds made their way to the main estate building for the reception. The natural charm of the estate, paired with white florals, greenery, and candles made for a cozy and inviting party space.

The celebration continued with a memorable first dance, and Heidi added a touch of glamour by changing into a second dress, adding an element of surprise and excitement to the evening. As the night unfolded, a detour to the library for some late-night, moody couples portraits became a highlight of the day. The intimate setting and subdued lighting created a romantic ambiance for the photos. We’re so honored to have been a part of this beautiful day. H&E, thank you for having us!
