Ann & Jake | A Wedding at Bowery Barn

Ann & Jake are married!

Let us just start this by saying, Ann & Jake are both super super cool. Photographing these two was easy as pie. This was one of our favorite days but who cares about us? Ann & Jake said this too! They said their favorite part of the day was… “the entire day.” They said, “It was perfect! Having all of our favorite people together in one room was so much fun.”

They were both surprised about how nervous they each were for the First Look, saying it felt like a first date. Their advice to future couples was unique and we totally love it:

We decided to keep a few elements as a surprise (our Signature Cocktail, our ceremony reading, our first dance song). Keeping those things hidden made it more fun for our guests…and for us as we got to see their reactions! 

– Ann

Yep yep, Ann & Jake incorporated their sweet puppy Zoe into their personal vows AND named their signature drink after her. Although she wasn’t there to lay by their feet, Zoe certainly was there in spirit(s)… get it… in the form of a mojito. Thank you, good night!

Their first dance was sung by a good friend and brought in one of their favorite shows, Schitts Creek. Actually, Ann & Jake got us onto Schitt’s Creek too. If you haven’t, do yourself and the universe a favor… get to it!

I call you when I need you, my heart’s on fire
You come to me, wild and wired
you come to me, give me everything I need
Give me a life time of promises and a world of dreams

– A song from Patrick to David. Originally performed by Noah Reid

Without further ado…

Congratulations Ann & Jake!
