Park Savoy Christmas Wedding :: Marissa + Anthony

Merry Marriage! The Park Savoy has a warm inviting feeling all year round, but during Christmas, it is pure magic. Marissa and Anthony love anything and everything Christmas and this was the perfect place to start their married life. It was a chilly, sunny day and everyone was in the Christmas spirit. Personally, Christmas and weddings are two of my favorite things and having them at the same time was AWESOME! These two are laid back and all about having the BEST time. We made our way up to the bridal suite where all the ladies were running around in Rudolph fuzzy socks and matching plaid shirts. The music was jammin’ with a mix of top 40 and a dash of Christmas as everyone finished up their hair and makeup. Marissa’s illusion fitted dress was ah-mazing. The bridesmaids picked out unique dresses of their liking in similar shades. We loved how the dresses all went together without being matchy, matchy. These girls looked fantastic! Marissa kept saying, “Oh my gosh, my bridesmaids are so HOT”. Well, we couldn’t agree more. GORGEOUS. On another side of the beautiful estate, Anthony was getting ready to see his bride. We had only met up a few weeks before the wedding and Anthony had mentioned how nervous he was about the photos. We assured him it would all be perfect. He blew us away! Anthony is a total stud and never looked more handsome. It was time for these two to finally see each other and everyone was so excited!

I think Anthony’s face says it all. Holy hotness! These two were beaming with joy and I’m pretty sure Marissa had a skip in her step. It’s like everyone disappeared in that moment of seeing one another. Marissa’s dad was out and about with his dslr grabbing some photos from different angles. I was cracking up because she kept apologizing for him, but I thought it was cute! There was a small amount of time before the ceremony would begin. The florals and details were timeless and fit perfectly with the holiday decor set up around the building. Marissa made her way down the aisle following the cutest flower girls ever. By the time she made her way to Anthony, everyone started clapping with excitement. We love when everyone claps. It’s a celebration! Even though these two had just seen each other 30 minutes before the ceremony, they were still giddy with excitement. The ceremony was sentimental, sweet, and the last quiet moment of the day. They sealed their vows with a kiss and the party was underway. We loved the classic florals, mixed candles, and romantic gold touches in the reception. Seriously, gorgeous taste and the little pop of Christmas red added that special touch.

If you want to know how to party, then you have to hang out with Marissa, Anthony and every single person they know. Holy, wow! The speeches were touching, the music was loud, and the dance floor was a place to forget your worries. Marissa’s dress was made for twirling and that’s just what she did. This girl LOVES to dance. The party was full on, the entire night. I think this wedding wins for the most shots taken at the bar. HA! Party on Wayne. Party on. The photos speak for themselves. It was an epic party that even went into overtime with 100% house music during the after party. Being the last wedding of the year, an avid house music listener, and needing to boogie- Jeff and I decided to dance. A full Viennese hour was the perfect way to end this incredible day. Desserts for days! The family, the friends, the music, our fabulous couple- it was an epic ending to our wedding season.

We are so grateful that Anthony and Marissa are in our lives. Thank you to you and your family for having us. We adore all of you guys and we definitely want to party again with you- minus the cameras. :) Congrats on your beautiful celebration and to your big, bright future. Love to you all!
