I’ll never forget that evening in the Dominican Republic, when Kathy, from Kathy Romero Weddings and Events and I discussed the possibility of working together for Cindy and Rob’s wedding. An opportunity to work with a fabulous planner/friend that I admire and a wedding in New Jersey, my home away from home?! I thought it just couldn’t get any better- but it did. When Khaled and I went on our family road trip over the summer to NJ, we had the opportunity to meet Cindy and Rob before their winter wedding. Cindy’s smile (as you’ll see in the images) is absolutely contagious! Cindy is such a sweetheart and I knew the moment we met, we would be instant friends. It’s easy to see why Cindy loves Rob (aka Vegas in the wrestling world). He’s dedicated to his family, loves her beyond words and together, they dance like no one’s business. Their evening wedding ceremony took place at Waterside on the Hudson river, with a stunning view of the NYC skyline. What friends and family were not privy to was that Rob had something special up his sleeve. You see, Rob hadn’t proposed to Cindy yet, and as the ceremony was underway, he knelt on one knee. It was such an emotional moment, that I had to fight back a few tears.

One of the most heartwarming moments from the wedding reception was when their little baby Noah joined them on the dance floor. Another of our favorite moments at their reception was when Rob surprised Cindy with an amazing jazz performance! Rob had been secretly practicing the saxophone for months leading up to the wedding and did such an amazing job!

It was such an honor documenting Cindy and Rob’s special day and working with such a fabulous team. We wish this beautiful couple all the happiness and love for years to come! Thank you Kathy for your trust and for everything you did to make us feel welcome in New Jersey. It was an unforgettable experience and we can’t wait to visit and work together again soon!

Enjoy some of our favorite images from their special day and stay tuned for their day-after session featured in the next few days!
