Valenzano Winery Wedding – Melissa & Diego

Melissa & Diego had good luck with the weather on their wedding day. The entire week before it rained everyday. They both have had many recent deaths within their immediate families, so there were a few people looking down on them helping to make their one day perfect. I love this couple and the bridal party. Everyone was just amazing and fun the entire day. One of Diego’s fraternity brothers became an ordained minister and performed the ceremony.¬†Diego’s uncle even read Corinthians in Italian. Their ceremony and reception were held outdoors at The Valenzano Winery in Shamong, NJ. We always have Valenzano Shamong Red wine in the studio. Diego & Melissa did a private first meeting and their photos prior to the ceremony, so that they could party the minute the ceremony ended. Right now this couple is in Istanbul, one of the three European locations they are traveling to on their honeymoon.

The private first meeting prior to the cermony was beautiful. No family or friends were around, just the couple sharing that special moment together.
