Laura was absolutely glowing, with the help of Facez. Action Limo helped get the wonderful bridal party, including the bride and groom, to the ceremony, to begin their special day. Laura's stunning bouquet was handcrafted and delivered by JR Floral. After the couple made it official, they hopped in the Rolls Royce, and made their way to the Liberty House for the reception. But before they could meet up with their friends and family, they made a few stops. We had the pleasure of capturing the beautiful moments between this couple on the railroad, Cobble Stone Street, the 9/11 Memorial, and many more special scenes. They couldn't keep their eyes off each other, wherever they went. When the couple finally met up with their guests, everyone celebrated Laura and Scott for the rest of the night.
