Ryan and Jake | The Bradford Estate, NJ
Jake and Ryan definitely define our fave type of couple to work with: they are laid back, well-traveled, and are very, very much in love. Throughout the planning process we not only swapped wedding stories, but gave each other travel tips on Vietnam and South Africa (Ryan served in the peace corps there). Then Ryan told us she was moving to Ann Arbor, MI for grad school at U of Michigan - Ashley's alma mater! It was no coincidence that during one of our final meetings before the wedding, we had Michigan basketball on in the background. ;)
When wedding day finally arrived, we all watched the weather closely as it was calling for a chance of rain. But rain it did not and Ryan and Jake held their ceremony outdoors at the beautiful Bradford Estate. Before that we snapped their first look at nearby Kirby's Mill, where we were blessed with a lot of lush greens and only 1 or 2 bugs climbing on Ryan's dress. The party was led by Good, Clean, Fun, while the entire crew danced the night away, finally ending the night with Toto's "Africa". How fitting. Congrats, Ryan and Jake!
