THE VENETIAN WEDDING: FRANK + CHRISTIE

“Their eyes met and they stared together at each other, alone in space.” 

F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby

Frank and Christie's wedding was oh-so-glamorous and elegant, similar to the parties Gatsby would throw! Which is fitting considering The Great Gatsby is one of Christie's favorite books and movies. The day was speckled with black, gold, ivory, and blush. The two were married at the Cathedral Basilica of the Sacred Heart in Newark, NJ - which felt like a mini-replica of Notre Dame! Afterwards, they celebrated their wedding at The Venetian in Garfield, NJ. Congrats Christie & Frank!!
