The weather has been so unpredictable this season and you never know what mother nature has in mind, but this wedding was graced with gorgeous light and slightly warmer temperatures! Yeah! It was a perfect day in the Bronx at the very picturesque, Marina del Rey. We arrived at the hotel to meet Mo and the guys. It was a very crowded, happy room full of family and friends anticipating what would be a fantastic day. Dana and Mo’s son, Derek was running about the room amongst the adults as everyone tried to help him get dressed in his tux. It was all hands on deck, for sure! Let’s take a minute to address Mo’s incredible style. Just wait until you see his shoes…legit! We were only there for a short time but fell in love with his family. We then packed up and headed towards the venue to meet with the bride and the ladies. The ladies were running around from room to room helping each other get dressed as Dana was getting her finishing touches done by the makeup artist. Derek showed up and needed to be re-dressed! Ha! It was all hands on deck again! He loves his mommy and wanted to be right in the action, so he jumped in her lap as they put her lipstick on. He is too cute! It was a gorgeous day with big poofy clouds and blue skies. Marina del Rey is nestled between two bridges with an epic pier over the East River. The ceremony was sweet as Derek made his way down the aisle to daddy and jumped into his arms. Dana sparkled as she walked towards her husband. It was a beautiful ceremony that led the way to one epic party. We knew beforehand, that the reception was going to be the highlight of their day. With one of the largest wedding parties to date- the dancefloor was always full. We enjoyed getting to know the families and friends. It truly was a day of celebration and so much love. We are so grateful for the opportunity to celebrate alongside everyone and to mother nature for the perfect weather! :)
Congrats Dana and Mo! We look forward to watching your lives unfold!
