Love Was All Around James and Miguelina!

October 30th, 2016 is a day that James and Miguelina will never forget. Their wedding day started out perfectly, and Miguelina looked gorgeous in her lace covered, drop waist gown. The preparations of hair and makeup went flawlessly, and James waited anxiously for his bride.

After having a moment with her mother, Miguelina was finally ready to make her way down the aisle. At Our Lady of Grace church in Fair-view New Jersey, James and Miguelina finally said “I Do”!

James’ nephew walked down before Miguelina, with an adorable sign letting James know that his bride was on the way! Miguelina was walked down the aisle by her father, who tearfully gave her hand over to James at the altar, hugging his daughter tightly before letting her go.

The ceremony was gorgeous, with friends and family gathered around to watch the newlyweds take their vows. The church was filled with laughter and love, and luckily for James and Miguelina, every moment was captured on film.



The ceremony was a traditional Catholic service, focused on the union of the couple. Their vows were exchanged through happy tears, and rings were placed on their fingers symbolizing their union and never ending love for each other. Finally, James and Miguelina were pronounced husband a wife, and ended the ceremony with their first kiss, to cheers from the family and friends that surrounded them.

There was time spent at the church after the ceremony with the couple’s family. The bride and her mother looked gorgeous, and while pictures didn’t capture it to the full extent, it is obvious how much love was in the room. Family portraits were taken, and the moments will be forever remembered and cherished as the beginning of the new couple’s life together.


After the ceremony, the couple headed to The Season Catering in Washington Township New Jersey where the party was never ending! They arrived in a white Rolls Royce, and entered to the cheers and applause of good friends and family.

The ballroom was decorated in shades of white and silver, with an ice sculpture glittering in the background. Everything was personalized down from the photo staging area to the napkins, and to the cigar favors.

The food was amazing, but the dessert table was a sight to remember! A four tiered cake, surrounded by cupcakes, rice crispy treats, strawberries, cannoli, and much more decorated the tables, and were left out for guests to snack on throughout the night.

A live band kept the music going, and dancing continued far into the evening without stopping. The bride and groom happily greeted guests, and posed for picture after picture – all in front of their very own customized backdrop!

The wedding of James and Miguelina was truly a sight to behold, and a wedding that no one will ever forget. If you are planning your wedding, and still looking for a photographer, Hector Rivera Photography is your answer.
