Hackettstown Vibrant Summer Wedding, NJ | Dominique & Nolan

Their Wedding Day: David’s Country Inn, Hackettstown, NJ

Dominique and Nolan had an absolutely incredible wedding day from the weather holding out long enough for us to capture portraits outside to the emotional first look with Dominique and her father, and the toasts from their siblings! I loved how relaxed, exciting, and special the whole morning getting ready portion of the day was! At their venue, Dominique’s getting ready room was INSIDE Nolan’s getting ready room, which built up the suspense so much more knowing that they were just inches from one another the whole morning! You can only imagine how emotional the moment Nolan AND her brother, their officiant, saw her walking down the aisle was!

Their Love Story:

They aren’t 100% sure of the first moment they met, it happened over time! They’ve known each other for 10 years – their little brothers are best friends! They officially became friends when they worked at the same gym together and quickly became best friends and later partners! Nolan’s favorite quality about Dominique is how hardworking and tough she is. He says, “She works harder than anyone I know and is always learning. She also the most beautiful girl I know.” And Dominique adores that “he doesn’t let anything bring him down. He always is smiling and laughing and can bring joy to any room!”

You could just tell how excited their families were to finally see Dominique and Nolan tie the knot after so many years! Their love is so strong, sweet, and full of so much passion. I adored seeing them laugh together and just have a blast at their engagement session exploring the downtown near where she grew up and then heading to the lake that her family lives on!

Dominique and Nolan:

Your wedding day was the perfect celebration of your love story. It was SO special getting to see how emotional your family was to finally call you two Mr. and Mrs. Keena! I’m BEYOND excited for you two and so so thankful to have been a part of your big day! Congratulations, love birds! I hope you’re loving the married life so far! Cheers to many more years full of love and laughter! <3 Love you two!!
