Melissa and Thomas’ Winter Skyline Wedding at Liberty View

Amidst the winter chill, love blossomed into a beautiful union for Melissa and Thomas as they exchanged vows in a heartwarming ceremony at St. Ann’s Catholic Church. Melissa’s apartment was a hub of excitement and preparation as she readied herself for the day ahead, while Thomas awaited her with eager anticipation not far away. They met at the end of the aisle St. Ann’s Catholic Church, their home parish, where ‘St. Ann Protect Us’ painted on the wall holds a beautiful significance for these two.

After a beautiful ceremony, and a few tears shed, these two emerged from the church with excitement and onto the trolley to head to Liberty State Park, which provided a stunning backdrop for capturing the laughter and love of their bridal party! The iconic New York City skyline served as the backdrop as the sun dipped lower in the sky, providing a glow almost as warm as the love these two radiated.

It wasn’t long before we made our way to the reception. Liberty House in North Jersey was nothing short of enchanting, with its sprawling windows framing the twinkling city lights. For Melissa and Thomas, this venue held profound significance, resonating with their shared memories and love story woven through the bustling streets of NYC. Among the many thoughtful details, the champagne glasses adorning the sweetheart table bore witness to generations of love in Melissa’s family, adding a touch of tradition to the modern celebration.

As cocktail hour moved into the reception guests were greeted by the unique surprise of a Guinness photo printing station! Here, guests could have their photos printed right on top of their frothy Guinness!

You can only describe Melissa and Thomas’ first dance as magical, beneath a canopy of string lights. As the night unfolded, we snuck outside for a magical portrait of these two against the glittering cityscape, a testament to the beginning of their new chapter, memories of where their love story began shining behind them. With laughter and joy filling the air, Melissa and Thomas danced the night away, surrounded by love of their friends and family, and the joy of the day
