Cristina and Nathan looked stunning on their big day. The beautiful bride rocked a classy and sexy Maggie Sottero gown from David’s Bridal that featured a beautiful mermaid bottom and a blinged out belt along the bride’s waist. Her dark curls was pulled back in a stylish up do that was perfect with the stunning veil she wore. Nathan was the dapper equivalent to Cristina’s beauty. Wearing a handsome and tailored Calvin Klein suit with bowtie, the groom perfectly matched the bride’s gorgeous wedding style.
The couple’s ceremony was held at their family church which granted a stunning backdrop for the romantic wedding. Cristina looked radiant as she made her way down the aisle with her father. Her smile beamed as she reached her groom. The couple’s guests were treated to a moving speech by her father and a beautiful church backdrop as the ceremony began. After their first kiss as husband and wife, Cristina and Nathan made their way out of the church and left in a romantic, whimsical horse drawn carriage provided by Wood Acre Farms. However, they didn’t head to their reception right away. Instead, they paused at Hartford City Hall and and Hubbard Park for some seriously gorgeous and incredibly fun wedding photos. When we say that his couple and their wedding party seem like a blast, we totally mean it. Based on Airen Miller Photography’s awesome images, the reception was sure to be a blast.
Hosted at Saint Clements Castle, the reception is where Cristina and Nathan’s theme could truly be seen. The pair chose “A Night in Paris” to celebrate with friends and family as that was soon to be one of their honeymoon stops. Gorgeous feather and floral centerpieces decorated the tables tables throughout the reception space, and a stunning black and white damask pattern gave the linens a French quality. With eiffel towels and bird cages and unique decorative features, this celebration space was tasteful and perfectly within the theme. The couple’s wedding cake by Creative Cakes by Donna perfectly tied the theme together and added a beautiful pop of teal to the space. After the traditional dance with the parents and the cutting of the cake, the couple danced the night away thanks to music by DJ Rico Entertainment. Just based on the super fun photos of the wedding party, we’re sure they had a great time. Congratulations to Cristina and Nathan!
