It has been ten years since Michelle and Xavier first started dating, and now it was all coming together in one big party in their own neighborhood of Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Both the bride and the groom started the day as a bundle of nerves, anxious to take this next step together. But as soon as Michelle made it down the aisle, their smiles (and tears) could not be stopped.
Michelle got ready with her mother at Z Hotel in Long Island City.
Meanwhile, Xavier got ready at their apartment in Williamsburg.
Fist bump with his sister before heading out!
Such sweet moments.
We wandered around Williamsburg for a few more portraits right after the ceremony.
Gorgeous couple, gorgeous Manhattan skyline.
Checking out their Serrano ham display! They had a master ham carver and even spelled out their names on the side of the ham.
The sweetest mother-daughter dance.
And the sweetest mother-son dance too.
More admiration for that endlessly changing skyline!
Congratulations, Michelle & Xavier! Such a beautiful New York wedding. Special thanks to my boyfriend Jesse for assisting the entire day, and providing some dancing entertainment too. =)
