Spring Jack’s Barn Wedding, NJ | Jessica & Matt

Their Wedding Day: Spring Jack’s Barn Wedding, Oxford, NJ

This dreamy spring Jack’s Barn wedding day was a long time coming for Jessica and Matt! They’ve been together since middle school days! Seeing them take this next step in their journey was so beautiful to witness! It was such a perfect day from their laid-back energy to their sweet pup, Joline, at the ceremony. They ended the evening with a wild dance floor – any wedding where they play Panic! At the Disco is my kind of wedding!

We photographed Jess and Matt’s engagement photos over 3 years ago! They didn’t even have a wedding date planned and Joline was a puppy! It was such an honor that they asked me to be there for their big day, too!

Their Love Story

Jessica and Matt met in middle school at their bus stop! She was 12, and he was 13. They would always hang out after school and play at the park near their bus stop. Jess said that they were the typical cheesy middle schoolers in love, haha! They lost touch for a little while, but one day, Matt rode his bike near Jessica’s house, and they’ve been together ever since! Jess calls them a once-in-a-lifetime love story and said that Matt is her best friend.

Jessica said, “With the proposal, I was not expecting it what so ever! I thought he was going to pop the question right around now, not last year. He brought all our friends to NYC to Rockefeller Center to see the tree. (I know it’s cliché haha). We always joked around about how I want him to fake a proposal with a ring pop to draw a crowd. When we were taking our picture, he pulled a ring pop out I started cracking up, but then he said, “I’m actually going to do this for real.” And once he got down on one knee and pulled the ring out, I was at a loss for words. I couldn’t even say yes when he asked me! All our friends were crying, I was crying, people standing by were crying, it was so beautiful.” Obsessed with this proposal story – go Matt!

Jess & Matt 

You two are the sweetest souls and have such a beautiful life ahead of you! Thank you for choosing me to be a part of your spring Jack’s Barn wedding day, I hope you look back on these memories with so much love and happiness for years to coming!
