Exquisite Crystal Tea Room Wedding | Jenn and John

Jenn's life changed forever the day she met John. She was waitressing at a popular bar in Hoboken when he walked in, and she immediately noticed him. His charm, sense of humor, and intellect had her hooked from the start. John, on the other hand, was captivated by Jenn's beauty and her positive attitude towards life.

As they got to know each other, their love grew stronger. John always made an effort to make her feel special, and Jenn appreciated it. She knew that he was the one for her. Jenn's apartment was the place where she realized that she wanted to spend the rest of her life with him.

The proposal was a moment that Jenn would never forget. John took her to the beach, and as they walked along the shore, he got down on one knee and asked her to be his wife. Jenn was over the moon, and little did she know that John had a surprise in store for her. They went back to Jenn's apartment, where both of their families were waiting for them. The night was filled with love, laughter, and celebration.

As they planned their wedding, Jenn and John looked forward to the day they would become husband and wife. John was most excited to see Jenn in her wedding dress for the first time, and Jenn couldn't wait for their first kiss as a married couple. They were both filled with excitement and anticipation for the big day.

On their wedding day, Jenn looked stunning in her white dress, and John was the picture of a handsome groom. They exchanged vows, and as they kissed for the first time as husband and wife, they knew that they had found their soulmate. They danced the night away surrounded by family and friends, and as they looked into each other's eyes, they knew that they would spend the rest of their lives together.

Here are some favorites from their exquisite Crystal Tea Room wedding beautifully captured by Ralph Deal Photography.
