When Diana and Chris were planning their wedding day, they knew they wanted to escape the everyday hustle and bustle of Staten Island.  They fell in love with how you felt when you entered Snug Harbor; you were instantly surrounded by history, architectural elements and lush beautiful, gardens.

Their wedding day had all the classic elements with some rustic touches that gave it a twist. Diana and Chris let the vibe of the Snug Harbor give them inspiration for their wedding day. They played off the architecture, wood, and natural greenery of the grounds.

They began their day with a beautiful, very intimate “First Look”.  The smile on their faces to see each other for the first time on their wedding day was a breathtaking moment.  Danny their photographer, from Olli Studios captured the emotion perfectly.

Their ceremony took place in the Tuscan Garden surrounded by family, friends, and their dog Copper.

Diana looked stunning in her wedding gown from R.K Bridal while the rest of the bridal party was in blush and navy blue.

As a DIY element Diana and Chris incorporated for guests to sign Jenga game pieces to write well wishes or little notes to the couple.

Diana and Chris kicked off their reception in the Upper Great Hall by sharing their first dance in front of guests to La Vie En Rose the version by Daniela Andrade. 

Diana and Chris wanted a clean, rustic look for their reception.

The centerpieces, created by Carroll’s Florist consisted of wooden birch boxes with white roses, hydrangeas and baby’s breath.

Diana and Chris shared this piece of advice with us for our future couples

“Be prepared for the unexpected to happen. But don’t stress out about it.  Just take a few deep breathes and roll with it. Everything will work itself out. The most important thing on that day is for the couple to take in the experience and just have fun. The day goes by fast so soak in the moments!”
