“On the morning of the wedding, I was feeling very calm. All of the girls got ready together at my parents house which was very memorable and special for me. We got our hair and makeup done while enjoying the breakfast my mom put out.”

“We arrived at the church early–and I am never early! Walking down the aisle with my Dad was a very special moment that I will never forget. My grandfather was very sick at the time, and we were not sure if he was going to make it to the wedding, but once I was on the alter and took a look back, I was so happy to see him there.”

“Our ceremony was flawless, and saying our vows in front of everyone that we love was really special. We then took pictures with the bridal party at Liberty State Park in Jersey City. From there, it was straight to the cocktail hour and reception at the Hyatt Regency. We had a spectacular night. The weather was perfect and the view of the city throughout the reception was flawless. We had an amazing time celebrating with family and friends. After the reception we headed to another private room in the hotel where we had an after party for those that wanted to keep the party going!”

Your favorite part:
“My favorite part by far was the first dance. There was so much love surrounding us, yet we felt like the only two people in the room. It was a feeling I will always cherish.”
