Picture this: a lively happy hour, friends gathered, and destiny playing its hand. That’s exactly how Joanna and Sean’s love story began. They first crossed paths through a mutual friend, but it wasn’t until a few months later that fate intervened.
Joanna had organized a group outing to a Phillies game, only to have Sean and their friend Dom cancel at the last minute. The reason? They were off to sunny Florida! Not one to let an opportunity slip away, Joanna slid into Sean’s DMs, playfully teasing him about choosing sunshine over a chilly baseball game. Little did they know, that lighthearted banter would set the stage for the rest of their lives together.
Let’s fast forward to the day that changed everything. Sean had a surprise up his sleeve, and Joanna was about to be swept off her feet. The original plan was a family bowling night, but Sean had a twist in store. He texted Joanna, claiming a change of plans – they would be carving pumpkins instead. Innocent enough, right? Little did Joanna know that amidst the pumpkin carving excitement, a sparkling ring box was waiting to make an appearance.
As each pumpkin was finished, they were to place a candle inside and take a picture. When it was Joanna’s turn, she removed the lid and discovered the surprise of a lifetime. Sean, with a smile on his face and love in his eyes, got down on one knee and asked Joanna to be his forever. Cue the tears, laughter, and an unequivocal “Yes!”
Joanna and Sean are the perfect match, and their shared adventures are a testament to their vibrant relationship. From paint nights to axe throwing, candlelight concerts to dinners out, they find joy in every moment spent together. But let’s not forget their favorite pastime – indulging in delicious food deliveries while watching the most random shows on Netflix and Hulu. They’ve even toyed with the idea of starting a podcast to share their hilarious reviews. Oh, the laughter that echoes through their lives!
Joanna shared her favorite thing about Sean, saying, “He is my absolute favorite person because I’ve never felt so loved before. He knows every part of me and loves me completely. From the very beginning, I felt safe – my heart, body, and thoughts, all safe in his care.”
When Joanna and Sean were searching for the perfect venue to exchange their vows, they knew they wanted a location that would capture the essence of their love and provide a breathtaking backdrop for their special day. That’s when they discovered The Inn at Fernbrook Farms, a hidden gem nestled in the heart of South Jersey.
One of the main reasons they fell head over heels for this enchanting venue was its stunning gardens, especially during the vibrant beauty of spring. As they explored The Inn at Fernbrook Farms, they were in awe of the meticulously maintained gardens and envisioned their wedding surrounded by blooming flowers and lush greenery. From the charming winding paths to the vibrant bursts of color from various flowers, it was a botanical paradise that stole their hearts.
Beyond the gardens, The Inn at Fernbrook Farms offers a rustic elegance that appealed to Joanna and Sean’s romantic sensibilities. The historic farmhouse and barn exude timeless charm, providing a warm and intimate atmosphere for their celebration.

They have a strong emphasis on using fresh, locally sourced ingredients to create their culinary offerings.
