Brigalias New Jersey Spring Wedding: Kaitlyn + Kyle

I’m thrilled to share the wonderful moments from Kaitlyn and Kyle’s wedding day. If you know me, you know I’ve known Kaitlyn’s family for almost three decades! Watching Kaitlyn and Kyle’s love story unfold over the years has been a joy, and capturing their wedding day was an absolute honor.

Keith and I flew back to the east coast to capture this special day, and let me tell you, it was nothing short of incredible.

The venue itself was like a scene from a fairytale, with lush landscaping, elegant ballrooms, and all the little touches that made it feel like a dream. As I captured the moments of Kaitlyn getting ready with her bridesmaids, their bond was evident in every inside joke and belly laugh, making sure Kaitlyn’s day was perfect. Meanwhile, Keith, my amazing second photographer and husband, was with Kyle and the guys, capturing their own pre-wedding shenanigans.

After some fun wedding party formals, we took Kyle beneath the willows and on the quaint little bridge for the first look. Kaitlyn looked absolutely stunning in her dress adorned with beautiful flower details and sparkles, positively radiant.

The chapel where Kaitlyn and Kyle exchanged vows was simply stunning, with high ceilings and large windows flooding the room with natural light. Surrounded by their loved ones, you could feel the warmth and love in the air. It was like a scene from a fairytale, but even better because it was real.

After the ceremony, we captured family photos in front of the stunning architecture before heading to cocktail hour. The food was delicious, from the appetizers to the dinner, Brigalias did not disappoint. I even had the pleasure of taking a break from behind the camera to enjoy dinner with some of my favorite people.

After heartfelt toasts, the parent dances began. Kyle danced with his mom, showcasing some impressive moves, while Kaitlyn shared a sweet moment with her dad. Then came the surprise first dance with Kaitlyn’s mom, filled with tears, laughter, and plenty of love.

After a short and sweet cake cutting (where Kaitlyn almost accidentally took off Kyle’s head!), the dance floor opened, and let me tell you, this crowd knew how to party. We danced the night away, capturing all the love, silliness, and unforgettable dance moves!

As the night came to a close, we stole Kaitlyn and Kyle away for one last shot in front of the chapel. It was the perfect ending to a perfect day, and I feel incredibly grateful to have been a part of it all.

Kaitlyn and Kyle, you two rockstars, thanks a million for letting us photograph your incredible celebration! Here’s to a lifetime packed with belly laughs, spontaneous adventures, and a treasure trove of memories that’ll keep you smiling forever. Cheers to the newlyweds!


Kaitlyn + Kyle’s Review: 


“Alicia and Keith are the best in the business!!! Knowing Alicia for my whole life, it was an easy decision to have Alicia and Keith photograph my April wedding. Alicia made sure my spouse and I were very comfortable in front of the camera. We received our sneak peaks and we are IN LOVE!! The pictures we received are STUNNING! I would recommend Alicia and Keith over and over and over again. Thank you for sharing our special day, it was a honor to have you celebrate with us!!”
