As soon as I arrived to the Dana Hotel, Maggie was beaming with joy. She radiated pure elegance and style in her dress from Mignonette bridal and purple Jimmy Choo shoes. I love the pink tutu dresses that she chose for her flower girls and was in photographer heaven as they helped her put on her bridal shoes. Tony and his 3 boys were calm and collected, hilarious, and so much fun. It was so sweet to see the boys help Tony get dressed! You’re going to have to scroll down and check out these 3 cuties for yourself!
Tony and Maggie shared their first look on the rooftop of the Dana hotel. Tony’s reaction was so sweet and you could tell that all the anxiety of the day left them both immediately. I love how couples have that ability to calm each other on the wedding day! As soon as we arrived at The Geraghty, I was floored by the classic white floral decor designed by Kehoe Designs. The room was filled with ghost chairs and tons of candlelit lanterns that lined the aisle creating an incredibly cozy and romantic environment. As Maggie walked down the aisle, you could see the tears beginning to pool into Tony’s eyes and I’m particularly fond of the photo where one of Tony’s sons is looking up at him so adoringly. I nearly lost it when Maggie’s dad gave her away. His embrace was so tight and his face just said it all. I’m a huge daddy’s girl so this definitely tugged at my heart!
If you thought the ceremony set up was incredible, you’re going to fall over when you see the reception! Like…holy moly. I’m just going to let the photos speak for themselves because I can’t even describe the beauty, ya’ll. I fell in love with the gray wood tables! Their reception was so special. You couldn’t help but notice Tony and Maggie’s selfless nature as they recognized those who have served and continue to serve in the military. They also made a point to celebrate and sing ‘Happy Birthday’ to their grandfather! A fun surprise for the guests was that Maggie’s dad sang their first dance song!!! And he was AMAZING! Anyone that didn’t know him would have thought he was a part of the band! Speaking of the band… they rocked out! I’m a huge lover of bands at weddings and this band will definitely go down in my list of favorites. I enjoyed capturing the guests as they danced the night away and as I always do, ended the night with hugging the bride and groom. I couldn’t have asked for a more perfect day with Maggie and Tony and are so incredibly excited for them! I hope you’re having an amazing honeymoon in Italy, lovelies!
Congrats Mr. and Mrs. DePalo!!
