Magical New Jersey Mansion Wedding by Joshua Zuckerman Photography
Posted by Sarah Zlotnick. Filed under Real Weddings, Reception

Nothing makes a wedding more like a fairy tale than a truly mesmerizing venue—something Marisa and Harris clearly knew when they selected New Jersey’s breathtaking Natirar Estate as the site for their August nuptials. With sweeping views, a grand ballroom, and plenty of gorgeous countryside to take in behind their outdoor ceremony—there’s simply nothing that’s not magical about this day! We also love that bride Marisa embodied the fairy tale feel of her wedding in her dress selection. Posed in front of Natirar’s paneled wood walls by ace photographer Joshua Zuckerman, she looks every bit the princess in her corset-style ballgown.

Though Marisa and Harris attended the same high school and college, the duo didn’t start dating until well after graduation. Both living at home in New Jersey and working in New York City, they reconnected while commuting into Manhattan and have been together ever since. Their chic, classic wedding is truly one for the story books—we love the subtle hints of sparkle, the classic black and white color palette, and, of course, the stunning ceremony site. Marisa’s parents walked her down a lantern-lined aisle that read “And they lived happily ever after.”  They said ‘I do’ underneath a chandelier-lit chuppah that was partially draped in a veil Marisa’s late aunt had worn at her her own wedding.  Cinderella herself could not have asked for a more romantic place to recite her vows.

After post-ceremony cocktails and appetizers (including mini burgers and mac and cheese shots—yum!), guests were escorted into the mansion’s grand ballroom for the formal reception. Free-standing candles and vases filled with ivory blooms set a magical scene for a night of dinner, dancing, and plenty of sweet surprises. Case in point: the couple’s elegant three-tiered wedding cake had a hidden rainbow filling!

In one final fairy tale detail, attendees were sent home with glass slipper-adorned favor boxes filled with Hershey’s kisses that read “A kiss goodnight from Marisa and Harris.” We love how the couple (with a little help from wedding planner Tina Wayne) stayed true to the magical nature of love down to the very end, and we especially love that Joshua was sweet enough to share these gorgeous photographs with us! You can see more details from the day in our full real wedding gallery.
