A Garden Engagement in New Jersey Straight Out of Our French Dreams

Don’t worry, I was easily mistaken too. These pics are not from a romantic escape to the French countryside… they’re in our own backyard, at the Jardin de Buis in New Jersey! But between the beauty of all these images by Sophie Kawalek and this chic couple, you would think you’re a world away. Get ready to add Jardin de Buis to your must visit list pronto with these pretty pics in our Vault right here!

From Sophie Kawalek Photography… When Aileen reached out to me a few months ago to start discussing her engagement session, I was so excited for her location suggestion of Jardin de Buis – a destination wedding venue in the heart of New Jersey. Inspired by the French countryside and gorgeous unique antiques, designer and owner Andrea has created the most amazing little bit of Provence in her backyard.

Aileen, Phil and I spent a few hours wandering around the venue, taking full advantage of beautiful backdrops, lush greenery, and the gorgeous daylight. We focused on simple, beautiful portraits of the two of them, only accented by an organic bouquet and small personal details – like her amazing one of a kind peachy sapphire ring and the matching Mrs. Box she brought with her.
