Nikki + Vinnie’s Wedding at Amarante’s in New Haven Connecticut
Nikki got her hair and makeup done by Bernadette Danielle & Co. at her mother’s house. She spent the whole morning with her mother, sister, nieces, sister-in-laws and almost in-laws! As you can already tell, Nikki is a very family oriented person! All of her girls helped her get ready, her sisters helped her get into her dress from Bliss Bridal, her mother helped with jewelry, and her in-law helped her with her shoes! With so much help it didn’t take long to get ready, and before you know it Nikki and her family was jumping into the Premier Bus to head to her Grandfather’s house for the first look with Vinnie.
Vinnie was getting ready at Nikki’s Grandfather’s home with all of his groomsmen, father, and future nephews! When Nikki arrived we set up the first look by the gazebo. Vinnie was all smiles when he saw his bride! And the whole family was watching to see both of their expressions!
Right after the first look we jumped into lots of wonderful family photos! Nikki and Vinnie were all about many different combinations! After many pictures, everyone hopped into the bus and went to the ceremony at St. John Boscos Parish- St. Mary’s Church of Branford. Following the ceremony and more family pictures, Nikki, Vinnie and the entire wedding party went across the street to the Blackstone Memorial Library. We let the wedding party go back inside the bus and we were able to concentrate on images of Nikki and Vinnie, outside and inside of the library!
Nikki and Vinnie got into the bus and travelled to Amarante’s for more beautiful pictures and for their reception! I love how the bride and groom got such a wide variety of wedding images of the two of them. Going to multiple locations really allows for more creativity, and different feels for our couples!
Now it was time to party! Having a New Years Eve wedding means you’re ready to have some fun! Duane from Lights Camera DJ got the party started and kept it going til after midnight! All the guests had a great time celebrating not only Nikki and Vinnie’s marriage, but bringing in the New Year!
What a fantastic wedding! Congratulations Nikki and Vinnie! What a wonderful way to bring in 2020!
