Waterloo Village

Brad and Danielle's Rustic Summer Wedding at Waterloo Village in Stanhope, NJ

We’re excited about our new blog and will be working on blogging (hopefully once a month!) Today, we’re diving deep into our archives for one of our first day of coordination weddings, for Brad and Danielle’s beautiful Waterloo Village Wedding. I’m often skeptical about working with friends, but when Danielle and I met for coffee in the spring of 2016, and she shared some of her concerns about her upcoming wedding, I knew instantly I wanted to be a part of it. We’re both entrepreneurs and were running young businesses, so we offered a barter - I was their day of coordinator and she graciously completely redesigned my previous website! 

To this day, I think this is still the most I’ve ever walked on a wedding day, we covered close to 10 miles due to the size of the venue, but it was absolutely worth it! Waterloo Village is beautifully preserved 19th century town in Stanhope, NJ. The venue is situated surrounded by woods, making it intimate, while still offering many spaces for ceremony, reception and especially photos. 

Due to the rain, we ended up moving their ceremony inside, but Danielle had originally wanted a barn wedding so it fit perfectly and she was thrilled! 

Between the incredible, locally (much of it onsite) grown food, cake with a special vegan tier just for the bride and the bonfire with s’mores to round out the evening, it was a perfect day!
