I had been looking forward to Marissa and Kevin’s wedding day since 2019 and was so excited to see them finally walk down the aisle together as husband and wife! Marissa and Kevin met through a mutual friend in high school and have been together for 12.5 years. They started dating towards the end of high school and have been together ever since. For their 10 year anniversary, Marissa and Kevin went to dinner at Cecconi’s in Brooklyn. Afterwards, they went for a walk down by the water – and that’s when Kevin popped the question! Afterwards, Marissa and Kevin decided to go for drinks at The One Hotel to celebrate. When they arrived, Marissa and Kevin’s families and best friends were there to celebrate with them! Such a perfect proposal story.

Marissa and Kevin got married at Maritime Parc which is a beautiful venue tucked away inside Liberty State Park located in Jersey City. The views of the New York City skyline are unreal (and the photo opportunities are quite literally endless!). When we arrived at Liberty State Park, we made our way down to the waterfront for the first look and bride and groom portraits. Marissa and Kevin decided to do a private vow reading together (which was so beautiful to watch!). Afterwards, their bridal party joined us for some beautiful photos in front of the city skyline.

Marissa and Kevin had their wedding ceremony on the rooftop deck of Maritime Parc during sunset. As it got darker, the golden glow across the city skyline turned into thousands of tiny twinkling lights – it was absolutely magical to see. Marissa and Kevin enjoyed cocktail hour with their guests before making their grand entrance and celebrating the night away! Just before we left, we snuck outside to the rooftop deck for some epic sparkler and nighttime portraits!

Congratulations, Marissa and Kevin! You have both been such a joy to work with ❤️ Enjoy some of my favorites from their incredible day below!
