MINERALS RESORT WEDDING: DAVE + JULIA

Dave & Julia were married at Jacksonville Chapel the weekend before Thanksgiving. They celebrated their reception at the Minerals Resort Hotel in Vernon, NJ. For a late-November wedding, we couldn't have asked for better weather. The sun was shining bright all day long which helped us create some really dreamy portraits! Julia and Dave's wedding day was infused with navy and fall colors, but also had Celtic touches sprinkled throughout. I especially love that Julia wore her grandmother's Celtic ring as her something old!

She also got to wear this BLING, so I'd say it was a good day for Julia's hands! :)

Dave's last name is "Happe" (pronounced Happy), so their hashtag selection was on point! #happeeverafter
