Jess and Carmen’s Wedding Day Highlights

Jess and Carmen are family focused couple and their love shines true in their beautiful daughter Emma.  When we meet Jess and Carmen to chat about the wedding, they told us about their relationship, their family, and of course Emma! It was a pleasure to meet everyone at their wedding in October.

The getting ready location was an easy decision for Jess and Carmen; their house is located next door to his parents, so the men got ready next door, while the women took over their house.  The ladies had their hair (Sensational Styles by Barbara Derrico – a family friend) and makeup (Lauren’s Makeup Designs) done by while they laughed and drank mimosas. The boys chilled with a fire pit a few beers before the A&A Limousine Service arrived with the party bus to shuttle the men off to the church. Once hair and makeup was finished, the bridesmaids put on their Mori Lee gowns from Sue Ames Bridal Outlet and helped the bride put on her Allure Bridal exclusive edition dress.  She added jewelry to her look with items Carmen had bought her for her birthday. It was off to the church we go!

Queenship of Mary Church was the perfect place for friends and family to gather to celebrate the marriage of the couple. They sealed their vows with a kiss and exited to walk through the crowd of their friends and family. We headed to downtown Bethlehem for an extended portrait session with the newlyweds, bridal party, and the beautiful Emma.

After a quick pitstop to The Steel Stacks for one more photo, the party bus dropped the bridal party at the reception hall just in time for cocktail hour at the Bar with No Name.  Hanover Grande Ballroom was wonderfully decorated with a head table setup family style in the center of the dinning room. A large dance floor spent most of the night packed with dancers thanks to Weddings by Paris. Jess snuck a taste of their wedding cake, by Piece ‘a Cake, to make sure it tasted as good as it looked! The tables had centerpieces created by Ross Plants & Flowers. To top off the fun, the couple’s friends and family dominated the Mojo Photo Booth all night.

Thank you Jess and Carmen for including us in your wedding celebration!

    Carmen and Jessica’s wedding photos are just beautiful.
    The day was perfect in every way…..
    I do want to thank you all for a wonderful day… You were there to help with anything needed…. In your line of work and weddings I am sure you feel your services are more than your
    photography work…. Some think not…. but those little extra’s. helping to fix a dress or see a child in need of something you were there…. did not go unnoticed….
    Your sincere kindness through the day was absolutely wonderful. I would only recommend you and only Uncorked Photography to others. Also… you took of photo of my Grandson, Gio… the curly sweetheart… That photo is the best I have seen of him in his young 7 years…. His mother has him involved in some modeling and this shot beats all that have been taken so far…. Again… Thank you for your perfect shots!!! Mother of the Groom….
