Whimsical Jasna Polana Wedding | New Jersey

Oct 6, 2022

This whimsical Jasna Polana wedding was stunning. We had the best time documenting every detail, and it was a joy to be part of this day! Klaudia and Sammy were a dream couple, and I’m so excited to share more of their wedding with you!

Whimsical Jasna Polana Wedding

This entire day was perfection. Honestly, narrowing down favorites from this elegant and playful wedding day was nearly impossible. Every detail was so intentional and fun. We even took bridal portraits in a tub! Yes, a tub, and it was beyond chic.

Elegant European Romance

Like any wedding day, we started with details, getting ready, and bridal portraits. I loved their wedding invitations and the paper butterflies we used for styling Klaudia’s pieces. They were lovely, and I love that they kept the butterfly theme throughout the day. The nod to European influence and design was so well done, and Victoria Wagner Events pulled everything together flawlessly. 

Klaudia wore the most beautiful cape, and I loved how it made her already stunning dress even more romantic. She completed the look with classic baby blue Manolo Blahnik heels. Sammy wore a gorgeous custom velvet Tom For tux in the most beautiful blue. 

For portraits, we found gorgeous little corners of the property and completed the look with a vintage convertible after the ceremony. I loved the garden with lavender blooming, and the smell was heavenly. The editorial look of their portraits makes my heart flutter. 

Reception Details

Their reception details were straight out of a fairytale dream. There was a delicate metal bird cage with florals, and every piece of signage was beautiful. The candles added the most beautiful warm glow to the evening, and they even gifted Dyptic candles to their guests. They ended the night with a first dance I’ll never forget and a stunning sparkler exit! I honestly wish I could relive this one over and over!
