Princeton University | Stephanie + Ryan

Since the day we worked Stephanie and Ryan at their engagement session at Croft Farm, we eagerly awaited the amazing day they had planned for their wedding. The couple had a beautiful wedding day on the campus of Princeton University. We loved capturing the moments of them preparing for their day all the way through their wedding reception.

Established in 1746, Princeton University is the fourth-oldest college in the United States. Princeton’s 500-acre campus is renowned for it’s park-like beauty. The buildings by distinguished architects span more than four centuries and include a variety of styles, including colonial, Collegiate Gothic, Italianate, Romanesque and modern. Stephanie and Ryan chose to have their ceremony at the University Chapel on campus. Princeton University Chapel is one of the largest university chapels in the world. Constructed in a tudor Gothic style, the elegant beauty and charm of the University Chapel is amplified by the Chapel’s magnificent Mander-Skinner organ.

Stephanie and Ryan got prepared for their wedding day within walking distance of Princeton University campus, at the Nassau Inn. The Nassau Inn is a unique blend of historic charm and modern style. With a history dating back to 1756, the Inn on Palmer Square was a beautiful venue for Stephanie and Ryan’s wedding reception.
