Rosemarie and Alex : Marina Del Rey Wedding • Central Missouri Based Destination Wedding Photographer

RosemarieAlex_MarinaDelReyBronxNewYork_CatherineRhodesPhotography_3645.jpg
Rosemarie and Alex’s Marina Del Rey wedding day was an absolute celebration of two people who have the most beautiful kind of love! These two high school sweethearts have been together for almost 12 years…yes 12 year and their wedding day was the most perfect day, rain and all!

Their day started at their own home surrounded by many of their closest friends, which really got the day started on an exciting note! Their wedding was held at St. Theresa’s Church in Pelham Bay, a stunning classic church with ornate details. The ceremony was short and sweet, with readings from two of their younger relatives!

After the ceremony, the rain came so we all jumped on the party bus and headed to the reception! As soon as we arrived at the Marina Del Rey, the skies opened up and we even saw a little sun. Along with a dove release and a beautiful dock, their couple portraits were just stunning.

From there we headed on to their exciting reception! Rosemarie and Alex have one amazing and energetic family who were ready to dance the night away even before dinner. Along with a sweet surprise song  from Alex to Rosemarie and a duo drum solo from the bride and groom, this reception was an absolute blast, which I’m sure you can tell from the images below!

Congratulations Rosemarie and Alex, your day was so exciting from the beginning to the end and I’m sure you have many many more exciting years ahead of you and your new marriage!

ChristinaCraig_CedarLakeCellarsWedding_CatherineRhodesPhotography_3584.jpg
Christina a beautiful person inside and out married her other half this past week at the charming Cedar Lake Cellars here in Missouri! Their wedding day was a beautiful mix of happiness, stunning details, and of course celebrating from everyone who joined them on this special day!

Their ceremony was set on a beautiful platform out by the lake. The cutest flower girl made her way down the aisle followed by the beautiful bride and her son, arm in arm.  Christina and Craig exchanged vows and walked away from their ceremony, Mr. and Mrs. Ceranna!

After the ceremony, we all headed to their reception that had a beautiful array of formal tables and wooden benches draped in white fabric and lined with amazing floral arrangements and mix matched china, perfect for this rustic tent reception! So many sweet words were said, even by their son, and the dancing began!

Congratulations Christina and Craig, your Cedar Lake Cellars wedding was just beautiful and I truly wish you all the happiness in the world as you start your new life together!
