Romantic New Jersey Wedding | Jessica + Craig | Destination Wedding Photographer

Romantic New Jersey Wedding

Jessica and Craig had all of their wedding details done RIGHT! I mean, Craig’s bicycle cuff links, the sunset pic of the two of them with a bicycle made for two, and the matching gold bicycle cake topper, seeing all of it come together gave me all the feels. Add to that a New Jersey country farm reception, with family and friends surrounding them and what more could you ask for.  For these two, I couldn’t have imagined it any better. The day was magical!

For Craig and Jessica, their favorite moment by far was that first dance. Their band did a slowed down rendition of their favorite song, “Shut Up and Dance”  and they agreed it was so special and reflective of their personalities and relationship. And if that wasn’t enough, add to that being surrounded by their families and friends. There isn’t anything quite like the realization that your love brought all these amazing people together. Jessica said that alone had a greater and more meaningful impact than either of them could have imagined.Bride gets hair done in front of mirror | Brooke Bakken | Destination Wedding Photographer

Remember Most

Speaking of love bringing family and friends together, that’s what they both want to remember most. That vast amount of love that they felt from all of their family and friends.Bride sits with bouquet in floral robe | Brooke Bakken | Destination Wedding Photographer Bride reading a note from groom in gift | Brooke Bakken | Destination Wedding Photographer

Honeymoon

An adventure filled honeymoon in South Africa sounds like the way to go! These two spent time in Capetown, Kruger National Park, and Umhlanga.  Jessican’s favorite part of the honeymoon was the safari they went on together in Kruger. She described it as such a unique and new experience that she was so grateful they were able to enjoy together. Bride sits | Brooke Bakken | Destination Wedding Photographer

Most Unique Gift

I don’t want to miss a detail of Jessica describing such a special gift.  She says, “I went to school for Fashion Design and have always loved fashion illustration. My sister/MOH who knows me so well and is so amazingly thoughtful reached out to the designer of my wedding dress and had her send a beautifully hand drawn sketch of my dress which my sister then had framed. It is the most unique gift I could have ever imagined because it is such a personal and creative way to memorialize my wedding dress as a piece of artwork that I can hang in my home.” Awww, sisters. I’ve got all the feels all over again.
