il Tulipano Wedding Cristina and Sean


The Couple

You may remember Cristina and Sean from their Skylands Manor Engagement Photos last year. These two newlyweds met through friends, as their best friends are actually cousins and own a family shore house together. Cristina and Sean were around each other many times before actually speaking to each other. It was one night when they were out a bar together that they were officially introduced to each other and the rest, as they say, is history! Their relationship evolved and Sean eventually proposed during a hike in front of a waterfall in the Poconos.

The Wedding Day

All week, there was a threat of rain for Cristina and Sean’s wedding day, but when I corresponded with Cristina she wasn’t one bit worried. She and Sean were way too excited about getting married that they weren’t the least bit concerned with the weather. They weren’t going to let a tiny hiccup steal the joy they felt that day. I loved this worry-free approach to the day, and I think the weather gods did, too, because the day turned out to be rain-free! Cristina and Sean planned a perfectly paced day, allowing them plenty of time for photos at Verona Park as well as the grounds of il Tulipano, which felt like we had escaped NJ for an Italian Villa for the day. Their wedding day details included the softest, fluffiest white peonies as well as gorgeous white orchids and other beautiful florals, all arranged by none other than Cristina’s own cousin. I love special touches like that on a wedding day! We had a hard time picking our favorites of the day so enjoy this recap!
