Meghan and Jay’s Sunset Wedding

These newlyweds had a gorgeous sunset wedding.

From the bride: “It was most important to us that we captured the intimacy and excitement of our relationship. We really wanted to make our day as special as possible, as we were pushed to postpone our big wedding twice, finally to next year. We did a little research and loved everything about Cape May! We tried to pull tones from the ocean, keeping very neutral colors and letting the sunset give us our glow! During our stay in Cape May, we went antiquing and picked up corked ink bottles from the 1970s and filled them with sand and seashells from our ceremony site for our family members who couldn’t be there due to covid related quarantine restrictions. This is our way of giving them a piece of our day!”

From the bride: “The most special moment of our wedding day was when we declared under the state of NJ to be husband and wife. It was like I had to wake up from a dream. Our day was something I would day dream about since I was a little girl. Our day was that and more. We will never forget the authentic, pure joy we felt during our shoot in the sunset. Mount Vernon beach in Cape May will forever be a special place we will visit on our anniversaries.”

The brides advice to other couples impacted by COVID-19? “Take your plans as a rough draft. If anything 2020 has taught us, especially with wedding planning, is to keep it simple. There is so much beauty in the simplicity.”
