Alex and Tom’s wedding day started out at a local hair salon in Staten Island called Serenity Hair Studio. These girls were amazing with their creativity. From there we went back to do the rest of the preparation for Alex at her Nona’s house. Alex has so many happy memories in her grandparents home that it was not even a question where she wanted to prepare for her day!
The weather was very rainy and cold that morning and we actually did not know if they would have to call the ceremony indoors. But as the day progressed the weather cleared up and it was perfect in every way!
They were married by Captain Bill, a retired sea captain and it was the most beautiful ceremony I have ever witnessed! He pronounced them man and wife and then the party truly began. We were able to have some beautiful portraits done with the NYC skyline as our background and it was gorgeous! After pictures we all went to enjoy the cocktail hour and then on to the party.
Alex’s dad had a bottle of Royal Salute scotch whiskey that was over 50 years old and he had saved it for her wedding day! I think they really enjoyed that. The night was filled with delicious food, dancing and lots of friends getting reacquainted after many years. The love of family and friends surrounded them all night. It was the most fun for sure!!
