Juliette & Brett at Natirar Estate in New Jersey
It makes sense Juliette and Brett were one of the first couples to ring in their nuptials at renovated Natirar Mansion, located in Peakpack, New Jersey, just forty miles outside of NYC. Yet, the sprawling green landscape, and picturesque setting, made it feel exotic, even destined. Like the setting, their love is wistful, romantic, and natural. It is a romance that seemingly belongs in a bygone era. They are intentional. Every flower, accent, detail, moment, counted. The venue is gorgeous. Once owned by the King of Morocco, this wedding venue is fit for the finest, most royal, and this duo fits the bill. And Juliette, who wears her long, brown hair down and her stunning smile wide, wore two dresses that day. Stylish isn’t enough of a descriptor to describe this pair. Ninety Acres, a farm-to-fork on site restaurant, catered the affair, and you can see elated wedding guests happily chowing down on lobster rolls, oysters, and shrimp cocktail, which is a great compliment to to the Northeast venue. The hills were green, the air warm. Leaves had not yet changed. 500 acres of lush land was the backdrop for the wedding, captured in early September, just at the beginning of fall.
Juliette looked stunning. For the ceremony, she chose Vera Wang. Her mother and closest friends (dressed elegantly in black), helped her slide into her Gianvito Rossi shoes, the shoes that would lead her to the outside Chuppah – built by Fleurs NYC, of over 1,000 white roses – and into her husband’s arms. Brett looked classically handsome. And he looked happy. He boasted a smile that is contagious, and a confidence. He dressed in a custom tux from Imparali, and Bottega Venetta loafers. These two can dress (later Juliette changed into a feather dress by Joanna Mastrionni). It was truly a fairytale wedding. The mansion was nothing short of picturesque. This couple personifies the idyllic, and so did their surroundings. Post “I dos”, Lorenza Ponce (Bon Jovi’s violinist) seduced everyone onto the dance floor, where a large party of friends and family danced into the night. Clearly thee two are loved by many. Romance, sensuality, and their defining word – passion- were present throughout the entire wedding. All the accents of the wedding, from the florals chosen by Fleur NY to the music boasted by Vali Entertainment, really elevated this ceremony into a day to remember. The cheeky, yet sexy, pair know how to be lighthearted, and both wear Venetian masks, designed by H. Stern, while cutting into their cake. They also clearly are in love, exemplified by Brett whispering into his loves ear through the night. Their love is authentic. Something tells me they may have a leg up on the once King Of Morocco. Mazel Tov!
