I remember meeting these two in New York City over this past winter for their engagement session … I can definitely remember VIVIDLY how cold it was! Despite the weather, these two smiled and did not mind showing off their love to one another in front of the camera. šŸ™‚ That carried over to their wedding day this past weekend! Jen was GLOWING from the moment I walked in through the door to the moment they exited … you will notice her contagious smile throughout the entire day. She is a beautiful and radiant woman which is why Chris was automatically drawn to her the first time he met her. They could not have found anyone better for each other! Chris is just as joyful as Jen and their positive and upbeat attitudes is a blessing to witness! I know these two have a bright future ahead of them!

CONGRATS Chris and Jen for not only a BEAUTIFUL wedding but also a great way to celebrate the love you have for one another. Truly, you two are the perfect match as what we heard in the best man and the maid of honor speech. šŸ™‚ Hope you are having a BLAST in Europe!!! Enjoy the preview of your wedding day! xoxo

The gorgeous Gramercy Mansion!
