A Letter a Day, Pre Ceremony Blindfold and Rosary Blessed by the Pope

100 days before their wedding date, this groom gave his bride a jar full of 100 love notes.  She got to open one each day up until their wedding day...  Meet Aaron and Nicci, the new Mr. and Mrs. Morrida.
 
Aaron and Nicci met 7 years ago at Saint Vincent University and wed on July 28th at the Saint Vincent Basilica. There were so many personal touches to this wedding.  Nicci's Aunt had the rosary that was wrapped around her bouquet blessed by the Pope and before the ceremony, the best man blindfolded Aaron to meet Nicci to pray together before the ceremony.  This specific moment was one of the most emotional I have gotten to capture. After a beautiful ceremony rain held off long enough for us to take photos at some of the church's outdoor areas before we headed to the reception at DiSalvo's Station.
 
While the guests were at the cocktail hour we had time to check out the train tracks and take a few photos, boy was it windy and loud when the first train went by!  The rest of the evening went off without a hitch, someone even pulled conductors hats out for the bride and groom to wear hahah. I'd like to wish the new Mr. and Mrs. all the best!!  This was such a fun wedding to be a part of.
