Destiny & Mark’s relationship started long before their wedding day. These high school sweethearts grew up in the same town, went to the same schools, and even grew up on the same street. According to Mark, “the girl down the street turned out to be the one I was looking for all along.” They eventually started dating, had their son Vinny, and in July 2016, Mark decided to pop the question and make it official. The next fall, they tied the knot at The Bethwood in a sunny fall wedding ceremony.
After getting dressed to the nines, Destiny & Mark met in the garden at The Bethwood for their First Look. Mark had the most amazing reaction – when he turned around and saw his wife for the first time, he let out a loud “YES!” which then turned into some tears.
After taking a bunch of fun portraits with their families and bridal party, everyone headed back to the gazebo for the ceremony.
After Destiny & Mark were officially pronounced husband and wife and everyone was cheering, their son Vinny was so overwhelmed with emotion that he ran up to his mom and dad at the altar, crying and hugging them. Such a sweet moment! ❤️
All the guests headed inside for the cocktail hour & reception.
The reception kicked off with entrances, their first dance as husband and wife, parent dances, and toasts by their Best Man and Maid of Honor, followed by tons of food and dancing.
The newlyweds took a break from dancing & mingling to cut their cake and toss the bouquet & garter.
I’m so grateful I got to witness so many milestones in this beautiful little family’s journey. Wishing you all the best Destiny, Mark, & Vinny!!
Thank you to all the vendors who helped make their special day come together!
