Angelina and Daniel have been together for more than seven years, meeting at a restaurant Daniel worked in when they were both still in school. And his proposal couldn’t have had a more beautiful, more exciting backdrop! He took Angelina to a top sushi restaurant in New York City, then they ferried to Jersey City. With the bright skyline in the background, he asked Angelina to be his wife. Daniel had a photographer there as a surprise to capture the moment, then had another surprise waiting… a party planned to celebrate with their family and best friends!
This brings us to the anticipated event they were celebrating that evening, their wonderful wedding day and the beginning of their next chapter in their lives together. The two chose the Stone House at Stirling Ridge in Warren, New Jersey to hold their beautiful, intimate wedding event. And it was such a pleasure for us to be a part of capturing this special day.
Angelina began her day with her bridal party at the Embassy Suites in Berkeley Heights, New Jersey. They had fun as they got ready for the day, having their hair and makeup perfected by Moda 330 and ByKatiness. Then, Angelina put on her beautiful gown. She wore an amazing Martina Liana gown with a dramatic plunging V-neckline and long, lace covered sleeves. The lovely lace continued throughout her bodice and skirt, which had a fit and flare silhouette and just the perfect amount of sequins for sparkle. And for something blue, she wore those bright and exciting Manolo Blahniks. Angelina could not have been a more beautiful bride!
And Daniel looked so handsome on his wedding day, wearing a dark suit with a sage green necktie for this very special day. His groomsmen wore coordinating suits with green bow ties, while Angelina’s bridal party dressed in matching sage green gowns. And Angelina and her bridal party and Daniel with his groomsmen each shared in a celebratory toast as they got ready for the day’s events!
Once they were all dressed and ready for their big day, Angelina and Daniel had their exciting first look inside their venue. Several sweet kisses and compliments were certainly in order!
We were so happy to be working once again with one of our favorite photographers, Drew Noel. He and his second shooter, Jim, never fail to capture the moments in such a creative, inventive way. And they’re so awesome to work with! Be sure to check out a couple photos of Angelina and Daniel Drew added to his instagram page!
Then it was time for Angelina and Daniel’s wedding ceremony to begin at the Stone House. Their late afternoon outdoor ceremony, which was officiated by Father Vince Corso, was so intimate, so personal and engaging. Angelina and Daniel shared wine to symbolize life, vitality, love and the sweetness of all they’ll share in their future together, after reciting their very emotional vows and exchanging rings. Then, they were pronounced as ‘husband and wife’!
A Touch of Elegance Floral & Event Design adorned the ballroom at the Stone House at Stirling Ridge with romantic candlelight and lush floral arrangements filled with white blossoms, baby’s breath and sage-colored eucalyptus, all in keeping with the green and white color scheme. Angelina and Daniel’s table had a wonderful long garland draped from one side to the other.
Following their wedding party, the newlyweds were announced and entered the ballroom where they danced their first romantic dance floating on a cloud! The traditional parent dances followed before beautiful speeches were given.
We heard wonderful toasts from Angelina’s maid of honor and from Daniel’s best man that brought us back to the couple’s first meeting and shared with us how their love grew over the years. Then, dancing lasted well into the evening, thanks to the crowd-pleasing tunes that just kept coming from Posh DJ’s! The couple only took a break only to cut and taste that delicious three-tiered semi-naked wedding cake from Rudy’s Pastry Shop!
At the end of this fabulous evening, we were so excited to capture their fantastic sparkler salute! Congratulations to Angelina and Daniel! May every day of their future be as beautiful and as happy for this sweet couple.
