Autumn Elopement, Allaire Chapel, NJ

Chelsea and Jesse’s Elopement at Allaire State Park

Chelsea and Jesse wanted a super intimate day for their autumn elopement at Allaire chapel that would allow them to breathe, take it all in, and enjoy every moment.

They met through their best friends… who are SIBLINGS!!! 🫢🤗 At their Halloween party in 2020, Chelsea and Jesse finally found each other. And the rest was quite frankly HISTORY. And the story begins…

They went for a walk at manasquan reservoir. Jesse made a bold move by wearing vans, on a 5 mile walk… 🤭 They’ve shared countless morning coffees, walks with their dog Raven, and becoming home owners together 🫶🏻 Everything just fell into place.

Their vision for their elopement day

For their special day they wanted to keep it super intimate, relaxed, and focused on each other. They reserved the chapel in Allaire State Park for their ceremony.

Their family and closest loved ones were there to witness their marriage. After the ceremony, they all went out to dinner to celebrate. It was their perfect day.

Now they’re “chums” for life (their special nickname for each other🤭). They kept their day unique and authentic to them, and enjoyed it their way.

It was such an honor capturing their elopement day 🫶🏻 So much love for this amazing couple.

Before the Ceremony

They only had their family as guests at their autumn elopement in Allaire chapel. They only wanted the people who are the closest to them witnessing their special day. As Jesse waited for Chelsea to come into the chapel, he stayed outside so she could greet everyone. After she greeted the family, she joined him outside a few moments later so that they could do their first look.

Allaire Chapel Ceremony

They had a beautiful small ceremony in the Allaire chapel. It was a short ceremony, and they were elated to finally be married. All of their family was extremely happy for them.

Bride and Groom Wedding Portraits

We walked over to the general store at Allaire State Park to do their wedding portraits. Then, we headed into the woods to capture the magic of autumn for their wedding portraits. We walked down a path with the colorful falls trees beside us.
