A Classic Glam Wedding at The Empress: Marisa + Antonio

They had been engaged a little over 2 years when they were married in front of all of their close friends and family. Over the years, the love Marisa and Antonio have for one another had blossomed into a beautiful love story. They eagerly got ready separately in the same homes they grew up in. As Marisa walked down the aisle with her parents, Antonio smiled as his beautiful bride walked closer to her husband-to-be. Vows were promised, and to say the rest of the night was complete with some serious dancing skills is quite the understatement.

After loving toasts were made and the cake had been cut, Antonio took to the microphone to thank guests for making their Wedding Day so much more special. Marisa was then escorted to a chair at the end of the dance floor. Tony and his groomsman had a pre choreographed a dance and everyone was out of their chairs dancing by the end. Marisa sweetly smiled on surprised by her her groom’s mad dance skills, and the rest of the night was complete with more dancing, celebrating and bubbly.

Marisa and Tony, what an honor it was to document your gorgeous Wedding Day. We couldn’t be more excited for you and your families as you start this new chapter of your lives. Keep on dancing together! Much love, A + P
