After 11 years together, Jessica & Daniel are finally MARRIED!! Here’s a fun little fact… these two had a small chapel ceremony a few days before their wedding at Liberty House! So technically, they’ve BEEN married 😉 This day could not have been more beautiful! They of course were married on the very last HOT humid day of September we had – so there’s that – but that’s not what they’ll remember. There were so many incredible moments that will forever stick out from Jess & Dan’s wedding day for me!
First off, every little detail tied together perfectly and it all looked so fantastic together in the end. Their gorgeous venue, the weather (albeit hot) was so perfect! Even the bridesmaids who wore four different types of dresses and Jess had never seen them all together – to see them all look so FLAWLESS must have been the best payoff from all that planning! Jess & Dan exchanged cards before seeing each other and Dan surprised Jess with maybe the best wedding gift I’ve ever seen.. when they get home from their honeymoon, they’re getting a puppy!! (They have the breed and name already picked out! lol) Their first look was so sweet! Dan had been anticipating seeing his beautiful Bride all morning and couldn’t WAIT to turn around and see her. I LOVED his reaction – his jaw dropped and his hands quickly applauded her! lol As they should. She looked AMAZING!!
Their Bridal Party was SO awesome and we may have ended up taking a ton of portraits of them but it was worth it! We made it back to the beautiful Liberty House just as sunset to watch these two exchange rings, vows and (literally) tie the knot – which was such a fun little surprise! Walking into their reception space just took your breath away. They didn’t leave one corner of the space unturned and it was all breathtaking. And the incredible views of New York City don’t hurt either 😉 They shared the absolute sweetest first dance that didn’t leave a dry eye in the room. A few years ago, Jess lost her beloved father. Their first dance was to a recording they had of her dad singing “Stand by me” and oh my heart. Everyone was sobbing bittersweet tears for these two. What a memory to share 🙂
Their AMAZING band had the dance floor packed all night long and when the band took a break, the dj kept the party going! NON-STOP dancing guys!! We ended the night with some FUN sparkler photos! These sparklers were so long and never seemed to burn out so they kept running back and forth down the row of their guests holding sparklers, kissing! It was the BEST way to end the night!! I just LOVE these two! Dan and Jess, I wish you both non-stop laughter and love. Enjoy your honeymoon and enjoy my favorite images from the day!!
