It was such a gift to travel from California to the east coast to photograph Jayvee and Jonathan’s destination wedding! The two were wed at a Catholic church in their home state of New Jersey. And their reception was at the historic Washington Crossing Inn, right next to the Delaware river in Pennsylvania. This is the famous historical location where Washington crossed the icy river on Christmas night to surprise British troops and help win the Revolutionary War. The charming colonial buildings perched alongside the river were complimented by the rich tones of autumn.
Jayvee and Jonathan made their own personal history about a year ago this October, gathering their friends and family who traveled from as far as the Philippines, France, and Switzerland. I can see why everyone wanted to be there for their wedding; these two are the perfect compliment to each other! As a wedding photographer, one of the joys of my work is to witness a couple that is truly in love and supportive of each other.
Happy Anniversary Jayvee and Jonathan!!
