Jackie and Anthony’s wedding could not have gone any better! The day flowed so smoothly and I had such a blast with their family and wedding party. I could not have dreamt up a more perfect day for them in the middle of February. It was mild and so sunny, it couldn’t have been any more perfect!
Both the bridesmaids and the groomsmen got ready at the Embassy Suites in Berkeley Heights, New Jersey. They were just a few doors down from each other and both super excited to get the day going! While getting ready, Jackie and Anthony were just so excited to see each other and finally tie the knot.
I especially loved the adorable shoes Jackie wore and Anthony’s wedding band was so special! It was finally time for their first look, which is what they both were looking forward to the most, so we headed off to the venue. It was such a sweet moment. When Anthony turned and looked at Jackie they could not stop smiling and giggling!
After some portraits in the garden and the wine cellar at the Stone House at Sterling Ridge, we took some with the wedding party as well. The day was starting to get chilly, but the whole group was amazing! Then it was time for the ceremony. It was held out back right outside the ballroom and the space was filled with guests. The ceremony was short and sweet, and once the vows were done everyone went to enjoy cocktail hour.
I stole Jackie and Anthony from the guests just in time for sunset portraits around the amazing property! Once the sun dipped below the horizon, it was time for the reception to begin. The family and wedding party introductions were so much fun. Jackie and Anthony then took to the dance floor for their first dance as husband and wife. It was so sweet, and every time Jackie twirled her dress looked stunning!
Followed were speeches by the best man and maid of honor. They both shared memories of growing up side by side the bride and groom, and had everyone laughing at the stories they told. Then, Jackie’s dad said a few words that were so heartfelt. He had almost the whole room teary eyed!
Jackie and Anthony’s wedding could not have been any more perfect! From the surprisingly amazing weather to the love that surrounded them, it was so great. This wedding turned into everything they wanted, especially being together with all of the people they love.
