They met as teenagers down in Ocean City, NJ on 12th Street Beach to be exact. Vaughn was looking for cute girls in the water to body surf into as way of breaking the ice and Jessica was one of those girls. They kept in touch by writing and calling each other but then they ended up loosing touch. After college Vaughn found one of Jessica’s old letters and got back in touch with her with the help of Facebook. Vaughn made a quick stop in PA during a road trip to visit her and they reconnected. After 15 years of first meeting, while shopping for Christmas gifts in Ocean City together last December, Vaughn brought Jessica back to where they first met and got down on one knee.
When it came time to planning their wedding they wanted a simple and elegant feel at The Loft at Landis Creek. They choose the colors Navy, White and Orange which tied in the rustic Fall feel nice. Jessica wore a Mori Lee gown and Vaughn wore a suit but Vera Wang. They shared their first look near a beautiful willow tree. Tears poured from both of their eyes as they had an intimate moment alone to take everything in. You could just tell that they couldn’t wait to marry each other after a long time coming. The sun was starting to set as Jessica walked down the aisle, which is one of my favorite times for ceremony because the lighting is just beautiful. I grabbed a few sunset shots of them before kicking off the reception. DJ Gaetano got the party started and just about everyone danced the night away. For Jessica & Vaughn honeymoon, they will be visiting, Marrakesh, Morocco and Madrid, Spain. Enjoy these sneak peeks!
