Jess & Leo first had a lovely Catholic wedding mass and then celebrated with a bash at Snug Harbor in Staten Island.
The gorgeous bride incorporated splashes of her favorite color into the wedding. Can you figure out what it is?
After applying a splash of her favorite color to her lips, she was ready.
She had the shoes,
and the cutest flower girl you can imagine, her daughter Mikayla.
After Mom helped her with the dress, Jess was on her way to the church…
.. where Leo was waiting. Saying one last prayer before the ceremony.
Mikayla looked like she enjoyed her ride down the aisle in her decked-out wagon.
The couple happily said their vows in front of their friends & family. We think Leo was thinking “hallelujah, my prayers have been answered!”
Mikayla was thrilled to see her name in the wedding program.
They had Saint James the Great, one of the Twelve Apostles of Jesus, overseeing the wedding from the stained glass windows while James the Great Photographer captured the ceremony with his camera.
Congrats to the new Mr. & Mrs. Sacco!
After the ceremony, we headed to Snug Harbor to take wedding photos on their beautiful grounds.
It wasn’t our idea for the wedding party to “moon” Jess & Leo. It was all their idea and it gave everyone a good laugh (us included!)
We had to get a picture of the newlyweds in the stunning Great Hall, especially since it was lit up with Jess’ favorite color. Have you figured out what it is yet?
After making their grand entrance…
they had their first dance.
Then, they partied the night away with their friends & family.
Congratulations to Jess & Leo! We have spent quite a bit of time together. First, shooting your engagement photos on the hottest day of the year. Then, a maternity shoot. And now, this PURPLICIOUS wedding! On all of these shoots, we’ve noticed how the love you have for each other shines bright from within each of you. Thank you for allowing us to capture these important moments in your new life together.
