I met Jonathan at the Omni Hotel downtown New Haven, CT in the Yale University area while he was getting ready there. At his room, I met Jonathan’s brother who was his best men and his little nephew who was a big helper and the ring carrier. Also the groom’s best friends and his lovely mom were there, too. The room was filled with lots of emotions and laughter after the little boy decided to have a little fun jumping on the bed with the wedding bands in his hands and teasing to refuse to give them back. We all went to the St.Aedan Catholic Church for the ceremony and we all waited impatiently for the bride's arrival. The Bride and Groom choose not to have a first look before ceremony. So, Jonathan was super excited and emotional to see his soon to be wife for the first time, and I think I saw some tears coming when the Bride entered the church in her father's escort. It was a very touching moment when The Bride was walking down the aisle toward the alter and her future husband, stopped for a split second to greet her grandmother who was in the wheelchair. She had made a trip from the hospital just to see Rebecca getting married. The ceremony was short and sweet and right after that the newlyweds went to Anthony’s Ocean View a beautiful wedding venue by the shore in New Haven, CT. The cocktail hours were outside and the guests could cool themselves with cold drinks and appetizers while the band was playing Jamaican tunes. After a short introduction the new husband and wife entered the Ball Room and they had their first dance as a husband and wife. Shortly after DJ Frankie Z from LMX Production played a few tunes and we went for the toasts. The Bridesmaids made a wonderful presentation and shortly after one of their daughters sang a song for the Bride and Groom. Parents' dances were full of emotions too, and then the floor opened for dance. It was an amazing summer night.
