Today we are sharing our very first wedding of 2017! During the winter months we take a few weeks off to spend with our family and to help us re-energize ourselves for the official wedding season. We had the pleasure of capturing Jessenia and Orlando’s engagement in Jersey City last year almost the exact same day as their wedding date. Time flew by us and before we knew it, there we were on the day of their wedding at the Venetian.
Jessenia and Orlando’s wedding was the wedding everyone, I mean everyone, had been waiting for. Why? Well because these two love birds have been together since they were in high school! Yes, high-school sweethearts. ^_^ So I am sure you all can understand all of their friends and families anxiousness for them to get married. They met at McNair Academy in Jersey City, NJ and as the years went by their love for each other grew. I would call that a blessing. If I were to describe their wedding in one word, I would say, magnificent. From the moment Jessenia stepped into her dress to the last song of the night, every single detail was magnificent.
Orlando and Jessenia had their ceremony at the St. John the Baptist Church in Jersey City followed by the reception at the Venetian Cateringin Garfield, NJ which was the perfect venue for their Hollywood Glad theme. All of their guest exude excitement in celebration of them. Orlando and Jessenia are huge music junkies; it’s no wonder they hired Posh DJs from 103.5 KTU. A good 80s freestyle with a mix of Latin music, kept the dance floor packed all night long. We truly had a blast that night and you can tell from the photos that their guest had a blast as well.
To the lovely couple, THANK YOU! Thank you for giving us the honor to capture such a beautiful day and for having us kick-off 2017’s wedding season with a BANG!
