New Jersey Vineyard Wedding: Kirby + Matt

bride and groom

I love all the sweet details from this New Jersey Vineyard Wedding! And their ceremony right at dusk is so, so magical! A bit about the day from Kirby:

We thought about our talents, made some to-do lists, and it all just fell into place. Matt is a graphic designer, and he immediately appointed himself as the art director of the wedding. I am a special education teacher, which is one of the few jobs that can turn you into a person who has enough patience to fold, string, and detangle paper cranes for hours on end. I don’t think we realized just how personalized our wedding was going to be until we were experiencing it. It definitely feels as though it happened on its own.

Big thanks to Pat Furey for the gorgeous photos and congrats to Kirby + Matt!

The entire ceremony was absolutely incredible and we will never forget any of it. Specifically, walking down the aisle together at the end had to have been the highest point of our lives. So much happiness, relief, and joy packed into 20 steps or so.

The best advice we could give would be to continually remember to plan YOUR wedding versus A wedding. As long as you are putting yourselves into everything, people will realize how special and unique it is, and you will be rewarded with something magical. The best compliment we received after the wedding was "that was so Matt and Kirby!" Throw out the ideas of what is conventional or traditional (unless that's your thing) and do what is right for you. Also, never forget how much everyone else is doing for you and always thank them.
