Kristen and Eduardo had a beautiful wedding in Brooklyn, NY. Kristen shared their love story.
“Eddie and I met through mutual friends. We started hanging out and hit it off well. Over time we fell in love with each other, moving in together after a year. We had been together 5 years by the time we were married. He proposed to me on my birthday at Chart House in Weehawken, NJ overlooking the New York skyline. It was a really cold January night as there was snow and ice on the ground. I work in construction, primarily the building of decks, so after dinner we went to take a look at the deck they had built there as well as the beautiful skyline. I turned around to look at the houses, as in Weehawken some of the houses are positioned on what looks like cliffs, and when I turned back around, there he was on bended knee with a ring in his hand. He asked me to marry him, and in my fashion, I asked him if he was sure. He said yes, so I said YES!!! I didn’t feel cold after that as I was so happy I was engaged to the man I love.
Our ceremony place, Holy Child Jesus Church, was chosen because my childhood priest was at that location. Father Colamaria had been a pillar in the community while I was younger and there was no other priest I wanted to marry us than him. The church itself is a beautiful church with strong roots in the community.
I had seen many other venues before Riviera Caterers in Brooklyn. However, when I walked into Riviera, I fell in love and knew that was where I wanted my reception to be. The venue has a wonderful staff that was very attentive as well as professional. The extras that came with it as well were well worth it. I knew I made the right decision when I saw the place fully made up with flowers and decorations.
We had a great time at our wedding. The day was a wonderfully warm September Sunday and although things didn’t go exactly as planned, I wouldn’t have changed a single thing. It was the happiest day of our lives.”
