Park Savoy Estate Wedding :: Daniela + Anthony

Every wedding we think to ourselves, “How could it get any more beautiful than today?”.  Yet wedding after wedding, we keep meeting more amazing families, working alongside incredible artists and celebrating at some of the finest venues. We are so blessed and honored to get to do what we love and celebrate new marriages year after year. Anthony and Daniela are two of the kindest souls we have come across. We had the privilege of shooting their engagement at our home last year where we got to know them a little better. Daniela and her brother also came by for a jam-packed photography lesson! Over the last year, we have very much been looking forward to their wedding and celebrating with them again. The beginning festivities were held in North Jersey around Mawah where the girls were getting ready at a hotel before the epic first look. The girls were running from room to room, gathering their things, all while eating a sandwich before we needed to leave. Great multitaskers! :D We were only there a short time before we had to pack up and leave for Anthony’s parent’s home a few minutes away. As we were making our way up the winding roads, I kept thinking to myself- wow, is it possible we are climbing a mountain? After reaching the top, we entered the driveway to one of the most gorgeous homes we have ever seen. Anthony’s family home sat on one of the highest peaks overlooking the amazing mountainous views. The guys had spent the morning get ready here and Anthony was ready and waiting to see his gorgeous bride. The winding staircase in the front entry was a beautiful place to see one another for the first time. Daniela’s Caroline Herrera gown had the most gorgeous flow as she made her way to Anthony waiting at the bottom of the staircase. And can we just take a moment to talk about the florals at this wedding? Holy wow! They were so beautiful and placed all over their beautiful home- even in the infinity pool! It was almost time for the ceremony, so the guys jumped in their limo and Daniela joined her father in the Rolls Royce as we all headed toward the church. More beautiful flowers lined the aisle as the wedding was underway. I remember a unique moment from the ceremony that really gave the ceremony extra “feels”. During the vows, the pianist played the sweetest little ballad while they made their promises to one another. I’m pretty sure I was crying at that point. There were such sweet little touches that made this ceremony so touching.

After the ceremony, everyone made their way to one of our most popular venues, the Park Savoy Estate. The grounds here are so beautiful and lush and it really is quite difficult to take a bad photo. And let’s just talk about Daniela’s gown again- wow. It only made sense that she danced and twirled in it before we headed back inside! So gorgeous. The reception was buckets full of fun as everyone was entertained by one of our favorite bands, the Michael Hart Band. The entertainment of this band is unlike any other. We kept finding ourselves just watching in awe. Hands down one of the best bands in the tri-state. The night was full of dancing, great speeches, beautiful moments, and a dancefloor that left everyone sweaty. That’s a successful celebration.

Cheers to the happy couple! We are so very excited for you guys and honored we were chosen to celebrate alongside you and your family.
