Liz and Anthony Wedding at Steiner Studios in Brooklyn

Liz and Anthony are a blast from the moment you meet them, there is no doubt about that.  I am so honored to have been there to share and document their special day.

Liz got ready at her parents' Staten Island home.  The house was full of excitement when I arrived with everyone putting on their finishing touches and running around making sure no one forgot anything. When it came time for Liz to put on her gown, mom and sister were there to help.  Liz' attention to detail was evident in every detail throughout the house, from the dresses she had selected, to the custom hanger for her dress and the delicate and beautiful handkerchief that had been passed down from generation to generation.  She also had gorgeous flowers, provided by Avenue J Florist in Brooklyn, that were simply phenomenal.

The wedding took place at the Three Hierarchs Greek Church in Brooklyn.  Both Liz and Anthony were baptized in this church and Anthony had grown up going here.  It was such a beautiful thing to see them come full circle in a way.  This church is so breathtaking, I could feel a loving energy the moment I walked in.

No bridesmaids at this wedding.  Liz opted for having bridesmen and a king's wedding!  Liz's sister was her maid of honor and her nieces were junior bridesmaids.  However, the rest of the bridal party consisted of these dashing and handsome gentlemen who were nothing short of spectacular!

After the ceremony, we all headed to Stage 6 at Steiner Studios located at the Brooklyn Navy Yard.  Cocktail hour was on the rooftop terrace overlooking the Manhattan skyline as the sun was setting!  Add on the fact that the food was unbelievably delicious and I was in heaven!  Things only got better and better as the party started and the music was kick ass!!  Liz and Anthony chose to have a DJ and a Greek band alternate so there was never a dull moment.  All in all it was just a fantastic day!

Liz and Anthony, it makes me so happy to have witnessed, in a small way, your love story from before you were even engaged!  God bless you and your families now and always!  Love you!!

- Jess
