Cecilia and Luigi met in 6th grade and believe it or not, they knew that they had found “the one” even at that early age! Friendship turned into puppy love, which gradually turned into true romance. Even through a long-distance relationship, the two made it work. True love knows no obstacles. Cecilia and Luigi simply know that they have found their soul mate for life.
The lovely wedding ceremony was held in the Skylight Ballroom at The Merion in Cinnaminson, NJ. This ballroom is incredible, with a 30 foot by 40 foot glass dome skylight. Cecilia looked like royalty walking down the aisle to meet Luigi. She wore a stunning sleeveless, satiny mermaid style gown with a champagne sash that had a beautiful flower detail. And Luigi was so handsome in his black tux. They truly make a perfect match!
We took a walk outside nearby with Cecilia and Luigi while Doug from Douglas Photographics captured the moments in photos. Take a look at some of them on his facebook page. We were so honored to film them on this joyous occasion, a culmination of so many years together in love. Their devotion for each other was so evident… we knew it would translate so perfectly on film.
Cecilia and Luigi’s reception kicked off just down the grand hallway in the Palazzo Ballroom, with its marvelous colored tray ceilings and granite dance floor. Twisted Willow Flowers did an outstanding job decorating the venue with enormous bouquets of ivory and blush flowers that lined the aisle and grand, branching centerpieces on the reception tables. With soft candlelight and billowing florals, we believe it was truly the romantic event that Cecilia had envisioned for her special day. And for the evening’s entertainment, the DiNardo Brothers never disappoint with their DJ services. Everyone had a wonderful time celebrating with the happy couple!
It was hard to keep a dry eye with the heartfelt speeches given both at the ceremony and at the reception that evening. It was said that Cecilia and Luigi are “better together”, and witnessing their love and commitment, we know that to be true! Congratulations to Cecilia and Luigi! May your married life be filled with love, happiness and everlasting romance!
