As Jenna’s sister and maid of honor said in her toast, “Jenna is a girl who knows what she wants.” What she wanted is Mike. As Mike’s brother and best man said of him in his toast, ” Mike only wants the best, perfection.” For him, Jenna is the best – perfection. Together they are an NYC power couple whose friends and family well know they will do whatever they set their minds to. Unstoppable and inseparable.
Their wedding was pure magic that only an NYC wedding can conjure: the elegant gowns and tuxes, the arched tiled ceilings, the towering flowers, but most of all the genuine emotions that emerged from both Jenna and Mike throughout the day. I remember crying through most of my wedding, down the aisle and right through the ceremony. I also am the kind of person who is constantly crying at books, movies, sometimes even commercials. So I do love to see I’m not the only one who has that reaction. While Jenna doesn’t strike me as someone who cries at cellphone commercials like I do, even she couldn’t hold back how she felt about Mike’s letter, walking down the aisle, and dancing with her Father. And Mike, his smile has never beamed so wide.
Both of their families were a joy, and their friends knew how to keep the dance floor alive. The night full of love and a lot of fun – it was such an honor to be a part of Jenna and Mike’s big day.
Thank you to Christina and Julieanne for their incredible second shooting and assistance throughout the day. You ladies are amazing!
So gorgeous Jenna!!! Doesn’t she look like Cinderella incarnate?
Mike wrote Jenna a letter on their wedding day
Mike got ready at their place which was only a few blocks from the church. Christina captured some awesome portraits of Mike there.
Their wedding was at St Peters, the oldest Parish in New York City.
For anyone who says a first look means you lose the emotion of walking down the aisle, I give you Jenna and Mike:
Jenna told me before the wedding that “This day is mostly about my Nonna.”
Gustavino’s is a gorgeous wedding venue tucked neatly under the Queensboro bridge.
