Van Vleck House and Park Savoy Wedding :: Jenna + Steve

As if things couldn’t get any better this season…we had the privilege of shooting at two amazing locations in one wedding day! Jenna and Steve treated us to two amazing places to shoot. The Van Vleck House is jaw dropping beautiful with giant columns and beautifully manicured gardens. The celebration was held at the gorgeous Park Savoy- one of our favorite venues. We started the day at the Westin Governer where everyone was getting ready to start the best day ever. Jenna and the girls were in the cutest, comfy tees and excited to get this day going. Let’s just pause a moment and freak out over Jenna’s dress. Like, OMG. In all my years of weddings, I have never seen something so exquisite. I remember chatting over the phone with her and she confessed that she would wear her wedding dress around the house and twirl around in it! So when she put that dress on- she was super comfortable. And let’s not forget how amazing those rose gold rings are!  Jenna couldn’t have looked any more gorgeous on her wedding day. Across the way, Steve was prepping for the day in his snazzy blue suit. Because they would be taking the same transportation to Van Vleck, they decided to blindfold Steve! It was so funny to see him stumbling around the hotel lobby with his blindfold and sunglasses perfectly in place. He was guided carefully onto the bus and shuttled blind to the location. It worked perfectly and when he saw Jenna for the first time it was epic. Their love is so refreshing. They thoroughly enjoy being together and it shows. Can a wedding party get any more gorgeous? The girls dazzled in their gold and rose gold dresses and the guys stayed funky in their unique sock choices.

The Park Savoy is a luxurious venue with a welcome home vibe. We love working with the staff here!! Jenna and Steve’s ceremony was set with the most gorgeous view of the gardens. We thought it was super awesome that they wrote each other’s vows and decided to skip the passage reading and let their wedding party give them quick tidbits of advice as they stood at the altar holding hands. LOVED that! It was truly unique to them as a couple and really kept things light and fun. Jenna’s father gave a heartfelt speech during the reception that brought even us to tears! He then asked for her to dance. It was a tear jerker moment when he asked her with her new married name, Mrs. Quartararo! Gah, so sweet! The band was killing it all night and the floor was never empty. What a fantastic party and celebration!

We are so honored we were chosen to celebrate with Jenna, Steve and their friends and family. What an epic day and an amazing wedding. Cheers to you all and so happy you’re in our lives now!
