Wedding details can be about so much more than magazine-worthy aesthetics. They can showcase marriers’ tastes and personalities. That’s exactly what Angelo and Nico did at their wedding. They chose a classic black and white theme to bring elegance to their warmhearted celebration.
Angelo and Nico’s relationship has always been about the details. They love to travel and head into New York City to catch Broadway shows. Disney World is one of their favorite destinations. Needless to say, they had big ideas for how to make a statement on their wedding day.
For their wedding details, Angelo and Nico decided on a black and white theme. Sal, Angelo’s dad, is the head maître d’ at The Addison Park. Angelo and Nico loved how it fit the black and white theme, and the staff was thrilled to be part of their day.
The Addison Park is an event venue in Aberdeen, New Jersey. The whole building is decorated in classic black and white just like all of Angelo and Nico’s wedding details. The front hall includes a grand staircase that leads to a black and white tiled floor. It was a perfect place for Angelo and Nico’s first look. Angelo’s cape deserved its moment to flow along the staircase!
Of course, wedding details aren’t just about the venue. Nico and Angelo each created unique looks from some of their favorite designers. Everything came from a luxury brand that screamed elegance right down to their rings and cologne.
Angelo’s wedding details stood apart from so much of what you see in contemporary weddings. They wore an incredible white cape over their white suit jacket and black and white bowtie. A Chanel brooch brought a little dazzle and captured the sunlight beautifully in photos. The look was definitely worthy of some editorial wedding photos.
Nico and Angelo were such naturals switching between more editorial posing and candid photos. You can see just how much they love being around each other. Even with all the luxurious details, their wedding stayed focused on their loving relationship.
Since Nico and Angelo first met, they’ve valued the combination of new experiences and quality time that characterized their wedding. On their first date, they spent hours walking, taking, sharing a meal, and watching a movie. Their proposal was just as romantic with Nico popping the question in front of Cinderella’s castle. Angelo later told me it was “a very, very magical proposal!”
That same magic carried into their wedding day. Angelo and Nico are two of the kindest souls, and they attract great people. They got ready together with all their friends and family. Considering that both come from big Italian families, those rooms got busy. They were full of laughter and happy tears the whole morning. Everyone, including Angelo and Nico, checked on me to make sure I had everything I needed. As a vendor, that level of consideration made me feel so comfortable and welcome.
Nico and Angelo’s families were so excited to be part of their wedding day. Angelo’s father even officiated their nighttime ceremony. Their black and white wedding details looked so chic against the white arches and flowering bushes lining the ceremony space. It felt like it could have been the set of a fashion show as much as a wedding venue.
The rest of the reception had a party atmosphere with incredible food and dancing. More heartwarming moments included parent dances and sweet speeches. Angelo and Nico were surrounded by love. After all the loving tears and celebration, they ended the night with a private last dance. It was a great chance to take a breath and connect at the end of an unforgettable day.
