Felicia and Michael were such a wonderful couple to film on their wedding day! They’re so fun and down to earth, and just so perfect for each other!
The two met in Long Island, NY when they both were recruiters, scouting for their respective colleges. After they had dated for two years, Michael decided to propose in their favorite city, New York! After they enjoyed dinner, Michael took Felicia to a rooftop bar overlooking the Empire State Building. In keeping with their fun-loving nature, he asked Felicia if she wanted to be FAT for the rest of her life (they had joked before that if they got married, her initials would be F.A.T.)! Knowing exactly what he meant, Felicia said “yes” and the lounge cheered in celebration for them!
Our day started with filming Felicia and Michael getting ready for their big day at separate locations. They each wrote thoughtful and very emotionally stirring cards to each other which they read aloud for us. It was touching to hear Felicia’s words to Michael as she proclaimed her love for him and how she can’t wait to dance in the kitchen with him for the rest of their lives.
Felicia’s glamorous strapless wedding gown was such a perfect choice for her! It featured dazzling beading and a lovely trumpet skirt silhouette. Her beautiful long veil coordinated so nicely with its embroidered edge. Michael was so handsome in his black suit... and look at those NYC socks! They’re an homage to the city where Felicia and Michael met and fell in love and where Michael proposed. Once they were ready, we were off to the church!
Felicia and Michael were married at Christ Our Light Catholic Church in Cherry Hill, NJ. Their ceremony was filled with both solemn and lighthearted moments. We loved the way the two made sure to have some fun during their ceremony...check out the way they looked lovingly into each other’s eyes!
After the ceremony, we paused for photos and video at Lakeview Memorial Park. It was a beautiful day for strolling around the park and a pleasure to work alongside Ray O’Connor Photography for this event. Fun and creative shots were certainly captured as the wedding party posed by the lake, on the rocks and in the garden!
Their reception was held at The Merion in Cinnaminson, NJ. We enjoy filming at this venue so much! Brava Vita Flowers & Gifts did a magnificent job decorating the ballroom with fabulous large centerpieces in tall, glass vases. And Monte Carlo from EBE Events & Entertainment were amazing as always as they rocked the house and kept the party going strong all evening long! You can see how much fun Felicia, Michael and all their guests were having on that dance floor!
Best wishes to Felicia and Michael! May you always find love, laughter and happiness together!
