The house was filled with happy conversation sprinkled with Italian, English and lots of laughter. On the morning of her wedding, Concetta surrounded herself with friends and family who support and love her with all their hearts. A few blocks down, Steve put on his bow tie as he prepared to marry his best friend since junior high school. This day had been many years in the making, and everyone was delighted it was finally here.
Steve took Concetta’s hand as they stood together in St. Edmund Parish and professed his devotion to her. He promised to love, cherish, and honor her and glowing with happiness, she returned his vows. When they sealed their promise with a kiss, cheers and applause floated throughout the church.
Concetta + Steven – I am so happy the world has a couple like you in it. Your love is truly remarkable, and my heart overflows with love for you both. It was nothing short of amazing documenting your love and wedding day, and I am so grateful to have played a small part in a truly perfect day. With love and gratitude – Brittany
