Nanina’s in the Park Wedding, Belleville, NJ | Christina & Vinny

Rain can’t stop these party animals! NJ weather this wedding season has been all sorts of wild, but my couples have handled it with a big smile and lots of love. Christina and Vinny’s wedding day at Nanina’s in the Park was beautiful with all of their thoughtful planning! Christina planned to have robes and hangers for all of her ladies from bridesmaids to flower girl to the mamas! It was such a sweet gesture that showed how much she cares about each of the women in her life! Christina and Vinny chose to do a first look (my fave!!) on the staircase, which was so beautiful and sweet! Can’t go wrong with an intimate, private moment with the love of your life! Although we had to accommodate for the rain, we were able to do portraits inside the venue, which looked so cool! We also made our way to the balcony and covered spots outside! And once the rain stopped later on, we found a window of time to head out into the gardens for dusk, and those pictures were absolutely perfect!

The reception was a BLAST. The DJ had smoke machines and awesome music to get the crowd going! So much so that at one point, Christina & Vinny started CROWDSURFING! Yes you read that right. How FUN is that! It was so epic and amazing to see how these guests got into celebrating! The dance floor was packed the entire night, which just goes to show that Christina and Vinny keep good company ;)! The dessert display was UNREAL – the entire room was filled with every dessert you could imagine. I loved that Nanina’s goes the extra mile to do a “first look” of the desserts with the couple where they go around the room alone and get to see and taste all of the options!

These two lovebirds met back in high school and got married on their 10 year anniversary! Christina was a freshman when Vinny was a junior at a different school. Thankfully, they were able to grow up and more in love together over the years! They have a huge passion for traveling together and going away on vacations. On their trip to Mexico, they were on the beach at sunset, and Vinny asked Christina to marry him! It must have been absolutely magical!! They are so obviously best friends, and their love story is just the sweetest!

Christina and Vinny, your smiles and laughter are infectious, and it was such a pleasure getting to be a part of your big day! I adored every little detail and all of the fun your guests had! Congratulations!!! Wishing you two the best with all of your new adventures to come! So happy for you! Love you two! <3
