A Sunny, Oxford Barn Wedding

A handmade celebration in New Jersey

One Sentence Sum-Up of the Wedding Vibe: A handmade celebration honoring the tradition of marriage in our most intimately non-traditional creative manner, with Whiskey Sours.

Other Cool Stuff we should know about

We ran out of Whiskey Sours, and had to send out for more whiskey. My grandfather toasted us, my father cried for only the second time I’ve ever seen him, and my mother spoke French for our new in-laws. Plus: poutine!

I feel like people must get tired of my saying it, but the weather we had on the Sunday we married played such a big part in making it a special day. It had been overcast or outright rainy all the previous week—no surprise for mid-October in the Northeast. That on the afternoon of Sunday it was brilliantly sunny and mild enough to warrant short sleeves still astounds me. And then, as we returned home the next day, we drove through fog and cold and rain.

Favorite Thing About the Wedding

    The picture of the first kiss with the cute puppy and a stick is so amazing! I’m jealous of this wedding’s awesomeness.

    I think that’s pretty much the best first look photo ever, PS. Our pup, Samantha, is very inspired by Brooklyn’s stellar work as well.
