From the Photographer

What a sweet and romantic wedding, filled with lots of Staten Island Italian fun and craziness! The bride and groom are two teachers from Staten Island New York, that’s how they actually met was at work. (we got some great school bus pictures as that’s the mode of transportation that brought all the guests to the venue) They love all things Disney and it’s where they actually got engaged. Although their wedding didn’t have anything Disney as a theme (except the grooms gift to the bride was the sweetest! I have many images of that), their wedding party did an amazing job integrating Disney characters into the maids of honor speeches which was a complete surprise for the bride and groom. Wedding party members along with friends dressed up as characters and read lines from the movies worked into the speech… there is a group picture in the gallery. The bride chose shades of blushes and whites, her bouquet was just amazing with peonies, garden roses, anemones and much more!
