Laura and Michael got married at the Beautiful Nanina’s in the Park in Belleville NJ. The venue was stunning, gorgeous staircases. Waterfall features in the back, all with a very comfortable atmosphere and great customer service. Their wedding was nothing short of EPIC from the ceremony with beautiful arbor to the wide arrangement of food at cocktail hour, their first dance they danced on clouds, their dessert tables, cigar bar, I mean WOW they thought of everything.
Laura and her bridesmaids got ready upstairs in the bridal suite, their was actually 2 bridal suites she got ready in the first bigger one with her large bridal party of 8 plus flower girl, and got dressed in their brand new just painted suite (you could literally still smell the fragrance of fresh paint-I love that smell). Michael gifted her with earrings that she always adored. Laura did a first look with her dad, she was holding back tears and then just couldn’t anymore, she got him custom cufflinks with a photo of him and her when she was little. It will be a cherished memory for sure.
Michael and his groomsmen got ready downstairs in one of the suites, he got finished dressing in the library with big windows and beautiful craftwork. Michael is a firefighter and his groomsmen brought their helmets for some fun photos.
Laura and Michael opted for a first look he awaited for her at the end of the bridge and she walked up behind him and taped him on the shoulder, he was blown away and she was smiling from ear to ear.
The ceremony was held outdoors under a beautiful flower arbor with draping sheer white linens. The officiant was super funny and relatable, he told of stories and gave wedding day advise.
The reception…let me back up a moment I shouldn’t foreshadow the cocktail hour usually cocktail hours are some hours devours, cheese, grapes.. not this cocktail hour this was almost like a buffet, you had chefs making fresh mozzarella right in front of your eyes, a Chinese station, a noodle station complete with garlic bread, stations had stations this cocktail hour was EPIC only to be later outdone by dessert I mean everything you can think of and even some things you didn’t know what they were..athem.. crème brulle, I didn’t know what you were but took a photo.
Walking into the reception your eyes didn’t know where to start first the gleaming dancefloor and super high ceilings that ended at the bride and grooms table at the end of the room then to the tables that were beautifully decorated with tall vase flowers easy for guests to talk around. Outside the reception area was another area for smoking and they had their own cigar bar.
Their first dance nothing short of amazing, they really outdid themselves they danced on clouds for their first dance, no I’m not joking and its not a figure of speech they literally danced on clouds (check out the photos for proof) just beautiful. They had guest come out to enjoy the moment with them. They danced the night away with family and friends.
