Jennie and Steve’s Vineyard Wedding was one of our favorites to shoot in 2016. What an amazing couple! Both are fiercely talented musicians who kept the party going all night. It was great to capture so many sides of these two. From the romantic moments they shared together to when they tore up the stage entertaining everyone with their awesome music. Who knew we’d be partying this hard at a Vineyard Wedding?!

Jennie and Steve chose to get married in historic Cape May, NJ. Jennie chose the beautiful Fairthorne Cottage to get ready for her big day. And just a mile away, Steve and his groomsmen were at La Mer Beachfront Inn preparing to start the day. Jennie and Steve shared their First Look moment in downtown Cape May. Afterwards we walked around the Washington Street Mall and took a much needed ice cream break at Kohr’s Bros. Jennie and Steve’s Vineyard Wedding took place at the Willow Creek Winery. Willow Creek features a 50 acre farm, lush landscaped gardens and a massive Grand Tasting Room where the reception was held.
