Today, January 15, is our official third wedding anniversary! In honor of our anniversary, I'm sharing our wedding photos with you ALL week. So far, we've covered getting ready moments & our wedding ceremony. Now, on our third anniversary, let's celebrate us!! Here are my favorite photos of the Bride & Groom, aka the new Mr. & Mrs., during our wedding photo session:
& last but not least, our favorite wedding photo:
Hoboken is not only our home but an important part of our love story. We met in Hoboken, fell in love in Hoboken &, three years ago today, we got married in Hoboken. It meant a lot to us that Hoboken be represented in our wedding photos. With some careful planning, we had plenty of time to capture sweet newlywed moments with the backdrop of Hoboken.
As we departed the church, twilight fell as we headed to the heart of Hoboken. The vintage taxi stopped on a charming cobblestone street in downtown Hoboken & we tumbled out for pictures. Then we went to the Waiting Room at the historic Hoboken Train Station, known for its gorgeous architecture & amazing stained glass ceiling. I had accompanied many of my Brides & Grooms here on their wedding day & it was such a treat to make my own wedding day memories here!
Deep winter darkness had completely descended upon us as we left for our wedding reception at Hyatt on the Hudson in Jersey City. We ended up making a last minute stop before the hotel. For the first year or so of our relationship, R worked at (the now dearly departed) Lehman Brothers on the waterfront in Jersey City, just a few blocks from the hotel. I'd spent more time than I care to admit on the little cobblestone street, admiring the downtown New York City skyline & (patiently or not so patiently) waiting for R to finish work. It seemed like a fitting way to end our photo session- parked in our vintage Checker taxicab on that very same cobblestone street with its incredible Manhattan views.
Now it's time to celebrate! Coming tomorrow: eating, drinking & dancing at our wedding reception!

*Please note that I have used the term "Day-of Coordination" because it is the common term. In reality, Eileen helped me with ALL the final preparations of wedding planning, starting about one month prior to the wedding & ending with the last dance of the reception. We had such a blast at our wedding because we knew Eileen & her team were taking care of every last detail!
