After meeting one football Sunday at a bar in the village NYC and bonding over being Giants fans, Melissa and Larry quickly realized they’d found someone special in each other. Before long, Larry proposed in front of Melissa’s family at a graduation party for her nephews. With lots of excited tears, she said yes. After hearing more about their story at their Liberty State Park engagement session, I was so excited for these two to tie the knot! And now, after a beautiful backyard wedding in Toms River, Melissa and Larry are MARRIED!
With COVID-19 impacting wedding plans all over the US, Melissa and Larry looked for an outdoor venue to replace their original plans of an indoor reception. To start, Melissa wanted a whimsical fairytale theme for their decor so it seemed only fitting to have their intimate wedding day at home – bringing their fairytale to life right there! I have to say that these two planned their day perfectly and with lots of white roses greenery and pops of gold everywhere, their garden wedding became a dream come true. Enjoy these highlights of the day captured by our associate photographer, Marianne!
Melissa and Larry, congratulations to you on your marriage. We wish you both a lifetime of happiness, joy, and love!!
