Remember this lovely couple’s engagement shoot Well, they have officially been husband + wife for a little over a month now!
Alicia + Harry tied the knot on Saturday, May 18th at The Venetian in Garfield, New Jersey. We met up with Alicia and her family at around 10:00AM, while they were getting ready for the big day. Alicia is the most self- sufficient bride EVER… She did her own make-up which was oh so gorgeous! and mom did her hair. Her sister’s also did their own make-up and hair…. talk about a talented group of gals? Mom’s been in the make-up business for years and these girls were taught early. Speaking of talent…one Alicia’s sister’s created a lovely personalized hanger where Alicia’s incredibly dreamy dress was hung. Oh and in the topic of “dreamy dresses” — can we talk about that perfect creation of a dress? I loved her dress and my friend’s friends loved the dress. Alicia could not have worn it more beautifully.
The room was what you could expect… lots of running around from one side to the other. Every possible electrical outlet being occupied by either a hair tool or a cell phone charging, every mirror displaying the reflection of someone applying make-up or fixing up their tie, but there was such an overwhelming feeling of joy, anticipation and excitement! Alicia must’ve asked for the time 784734738 times! But I’m beginning to think that’s the average for brides…lol.
The ceremony was incredibly beautiful and quite funny. Every guest was reminded of how Alicia + Harry the individuals, became Alicia + Harry the couple. We were taken back to the beginnings of their relationship with their college days at Penn State, to more present times where they’ve shared trips, stood by each other’s side through exciting milestones like Harry’s graduation from Harvard Law school, different careers and of course a home. Shortly after the ceremony, it was time to party and enjoy the day with friends and family.
Harry and Alicia’s day was filled with so much love and laughter. We really enjoyed being a part of their day and wish them a lifetime of happiness!
And this is all Folks!
So after i had packed my stuff up, got inside my car and drove about 10 minutes from the venue I couldn’t shake the feeling of wanting to shoot outside of the venue in this backstreet i saw on my way out, so I decided to turn back and ask Alicia if they were down for 10 more minutes and being the awesomely daring couple that they are, they trusted me blindly, wrapped up the party and followed me outside, after everything had settled we had the chance to squeeze in another mini session and this was the result, hope you guys had a good time with me and enjoy your pictures!
