A Farmstead of Ringoes Wedding| Ringoes, NJ

Republished April 6th, 2020

Arlee & Ryan’s New Jersey rustic barn wedding was a pintrest worthy, fun and laid back occasion. Filled with lots of laughter, joy and a few good tears. From our initial email when Ryan told me their proposal story I knew they were a perfect fit for Scar Vita. Get ready to say “Awwww”, Ryan proposed back in 2016 during a scuba diving trip in the Cayman Islands.  He had their dive master hide keys under water that they had to find during the dive.  One of the keys opened a locker on land that had a note written by Ryan.  Arlee read it and turned around to find Ryan on one knee.

See total “Awwww” moment💖.

This was my first Farm Rustic wedding and I am so grateful to Arlee & Ryan for trusting me to capture their big day. I can honestly say that Arlee and Ryan’s wedding day was unlike anything I have ever experienced before for starters, the couple arrived to their ceremony on a train and had their cocktail hour aboard the train. I mean, I don’t know about you but that isn’t something you see at every wedding. It was truly was a unique day at a venue full of charm and character, just like their love this wedding day was beautiful.  They are two of the sweetest people you will ever meet and would probably want to be instant friends with. Arlee & Ryan just radiate love and joy when they are together which made it so easy for me to capture them naturally. When choosing how many images to blog for this “Sneak Peek” I had over 200 images (not even close to their full gallery) it was so hard to narrow it down to just a few. I hope you all enjoy some of my favorites this Wedding and love them as much as I do💖

Black River Western Railroad Bride and Groom

One of my favorite parts of the day was the old Steam Engine train from Black River & Western. We were able to get some great shots but we also got to ride the train over to The Farmstead of Ringoes. This was a unique way for the Bride & Groom to arrive at their ceremony.

I mean how freaking awesome is this ?!?! Who wouldn’t want to arrive to their Wedding like this ! But wait till you see how else this awesome train was used.


The train from Black River and Western served at their Cocktail hour space. Guests got to sit and explore this beautiful train.


Golden hour, what makes my heart skip a beat 🤗
