Park Chateau Wedding Highlight // Jessica + Mark

PARK CHATEAU WEDDING VIDEO

When asked what Jessica and Mark were most excited for on their wedding day, they replied, “We are excited to have the people who care most about us in one room. But honestly, we are just so excited to become husband and wife.” It’s evident that these two are perfect for one another just by listening to them read the love letters that they wrote to each other!

Opting for a more traditional ceremony at St. Michaels Church in Cranford, NJ, we love that the first moment where Mark sees Jessica walking toward him down the aisle that he starts to tear up — it just might be one of the sweetest moments we’ve seen! And when they were officially announced as husband and wife, after sharing their first kiss, you can tell how happy they are to be Mr. & Mrs. just by looking at the big smiles on their faces!

Their reception was held at the always gorgeous Park Chateau, and we loved walking around with the newlyweds, and our photographer bestie Jennifer Larsen, for portraits. Even in March, before the gardens started blooming, the landscape at Park Chateau was beautiful! The wind worked to our advantage that day, too, because we had the chance to capture the movement of Jessica’s breathtaking dress and veil! To see some of the images that Jennifer Larsen photographed of the couple, be sure to check out her blog here!

Knowing that their love will only continue to deepen and grow, Jessica’s sister said it best as she toasted to the newlyweds, saying “…years from now you’ll look back on this day, your wedding day, as the day you loved each other the least.”

THIS IS THEIR LOVE STORY

Jessica works for the NJ FMBA (Firefighters Union) and Mark is a Firefighter, so naturally their paths would cross eventually! Mark’s Battalion Chief wanted to set them up for a while, but the timing wasn’t just right. One day, Mark came into the office where Jessica works to have lunch with his co-worked and Jessica’s boss. She asked her boss to bring her a salad, and when they returned from lunch, Mark gave it to her instead! They started talking, and he asked for her number. Two weeks later, he called Jessica to ask her out to lunch, and after that lunch they started dating exclusively!

For Jessica’s birthday, Mark took her on a vacation to Portland, Maine to celebrate. Before they reached Portland, they stopped at the Nubble Lighthouse in Kittery Maine, where he popped the question! He even had a a photographer waiting to capture the moment. The most amazing part was that Jessica was completely surprised — she knew they would end up together, but didn’t know that it would happen at that moment. And that surprise made it so special.

Wishing you both a lifetime full of love and happiness!!  Congrats to the new Mr. & Mrs. Bagniewski! #MarkBagsaHarnden

Park Chateau Estate Wedding // Alyssa + John

Park Chateau Estate Wedding Video

What an AMAZING way to end our 2017 with Alyssa and John's beautiful holiday glam wedding at the one and only Park Chateau! I can't even count how many times we have cried, laughed and danced along while putting together this video. Seriously, all the feels! Alyssa and John, we can't wait for you to relive this magical day over and over AND over again!

What perfect day for a December wedding and with days before Christmas, the Park Chateau was decked out with gorgeous holiday wreaths and greenery! Alyssa and her girls got ready in the beautiful bridal suite on the grounds of the Park Chateau and as always, Michelle Elise Artistry were working their magic! Not far down the hall, John and his guys were hanging out and getting ready.  We were so happy to be working with one of our favorite photographers, Jennifer Larsen; she is so amazing- #dreamteam right here!

Alyssa and John shared a special first look in the garden- the chapel doors opened and Alyssa made her way to see John.  Family and friends peeked out on the balcony filled with excitement as they watched this special moment unfold!  You have to watch their highlight video to see their reactions to this amazing moment! 

After capturing portraits, everyone headed to the nearby church to watch these two officially tie the knot!

From their sparkler exit out of the church, to their fairytale first dance, to their heartfelt 'thank you' speech- these were just a few of our favorite moments from the day!  

Alyssa and John, thank you two for sharing your special day with us! We wish you both a lifetime of happiness and love! Congrats to the new Mr. & Mrs. John Tedeso! #MerryingTedesco
