It was the Fourth of July holiday weekend when Paulina and Adam tied the knot, another wonderful reason to celebrate! The weather was a little cooler, but the skies stayed mostly clear and their wedding day was absolutely perfect!
Paulina got ready for the day at her family home in New Jersey, while Adam got dressed with his groomsmen at a nearby hotel. Paulina’s mother helped her button up her gown and fasten her veil for this special day. Her lovely wedding dress had a fit and flare silhouette, a dramatic deep V neckline and beautiful lace appliqués. And she wore her hair in a romantic updo, fastened in the back with a delicate clip adorned with pearls. Paulina was such a beautiful bride!
After they were all dressed and ready, the couple had a first look at Paulina’s family home. It was so sweet how anxious they were to see each other for the first time on their wedding day! And it was especially fun to see how emotional Adam was at the sight of his bride.
The wedding ceremony then began at Our Lady of Peace Church in North Brunswick, New Jersey. The couple had a traditional ceremony where they recited their solemn vows to each other and were pronounced as husband and wife.
Paulina and Adam’s photo shoots took place at their church and later at their reception venue, The Ashford Estate. We really enjoyed working with their photographer, Dyanna LaMora, as she took those beautiful photos of the couple, their family and their wedding party, especially those artistic photos of Paulina and Adam in the gazebo on the water. It was so sweet to see the couple relaxed and taking time to enjoy their special day away from the hustle and bustle for a bit.
Then, Paulina and Adam’s fantastic reception kicked off at the Ashford Estate! The couple entered the ballroom and danced a very romantic first dance together, their very first as husband and wife. Paulina danced with her father and Adam with his mother after their first dance, such sweet and sentimental moments.
As the main course was being served, we heard a beautiful welcome speech from Paulina’s father and toasts from her matron of honor and from Adam’s best men. It was so lovely how each described their love for Paulina and Adam and how all of the toasts were beautifully written from the heart. And it was so wonderful to see Paulina’s matron of honor, Nicole, again, as well as her husband, James (a couple we filmed a few years ago)!
Dancing continued late into the evening as Paulina, Adam and their family and friends all celebrated this beautiful day! Glass Slipper Weddings & Events did an outstanding job in coordinating this wonderful wedding event.
Congratulations to Paulina and Adam and best wishes for a future together filled with love and happiness!
