Vicki and Marco were married on August 27th, with a ceremony at Our Lady of Victory RCC in Floral Park, NY, and a reception at the Vanderbilt Museum.

Before the wedding, I went to Vicki’s house for getting ready prep. The house had an old English Tudor design, and it gave the photos a classic, vintage look. I especially loved the long hallways leading to her childhood room, where you could see from the bookshelves how much she loved to read. I could just imagine her curled up with a warm blanket on cold nights when the wind was blowing through the single-paned windows—wrapped up in a good book.

When we arrived at the church, and the priest, Father Greg, was there to welcome the bridal party. He was a good friend of Vicki’s, and he had been helping with some of the planning tasks—I believe he was even the one who recommended me; thank you Father!

Marco’s family is from Guatemala, and many of his family members made the journey to witness him get married. I loved seeing these two with their families. They both have such a calming demeanor, so it was a blast to see them really have fun and enjoy the wedding!

After the Mass, Vicki and Marco drove with the top down in a 1964 Thunderbird convertible to the Vanderbilt Museum—you just gotta love that!

The museum itself does not disappointed—with its stunning vistas, Spanish-style architecture, and 1920s historical beauty. One of my favorite pictures is of the two of them walking past the mansion as we finished a few sunset photos. Such classic beauty!

Vicki and Marco, thank you for hiring me. I miss you, and I can’t wait to see you at Deborah’s wedding! Love, John
