We went outside for a quick minute but it was FREEZING on New Year’s Eve.  Jen’s fur cap was perfect.

What was the most memorable moment of your day?

Bride: The most memorable moment for me was our first look. Words can’t even describe how Justin made me feel just by the way he was looking at me.  He was so handsome, especially seeing him so dressed up outside of his USN dress whites and blues.
Groom: Turning around and seeing Jen for the first time.

What was your favorite detail?
Bride: All of the gorgeous lights in the venue.  There were string lights everywhere that were just stunning, and there were string lights as a backdrop behind our seats for the reception that many guests were able to use for their own beautiful photos.

Groom: My favorite detail was the lighting of the venue.

Any advice for future bride/grooms?
Bride: Just have fun with all the planning and try not to let small issues become bigger than necessary.  Remember that the reason for all the planning is to celebrate the love and happiness between you and your future husband, so that is what is important.
Groom: Get a timeline from all your vendors and go over it with them to make hard times. Also try to get a sound check with the DJ.
If you could do it all over, would you change anything?
Bride: Nope:)Although not every single detail was perfect, it was the BEST DAY EVER and we were so lucky to spend it with so many loved ones. I married the man of my dreams, so what more could I ask for?!

Groom: Nope.

Where did you go on your honeymoon?
We haven’t honeymooned yet, but we are going to Honolulu, Hawaii in April!
How was your experience with Crystal Jo Foto?  If you have a favorite memory with her, please share it.
Crystal Jo is AMAZING!!  She makes you feel so comfortable and like part of the wedding party:)My favorite memories with her (besides my awesome wedding day) would include growing up around her at gymnastics and continuing to cross paths  with our careers coaching and judging high school gymnastics! She’s always helpful and genuine in any aspect.  Plus she looks so good in our furs ha!

What is your favorite memory during your child’s first year and a half of life?
Her first year n half is full of lovely memories n it’s really hard for me to pick one ..but d first time we heard her giggle n d first time she said ‘mama’ are just one of d best moments I ve had.
Do you have a funny story or something that happened in her first year and a half that you’d like to share?
So she would just go figure out the power button of any electronic device and switch it on ( anybody who knows us wud know the amount of devices in our home:)) from around 9 months age . I was amazed to see she managed to switch on an old vcr at a friends place as well !

The other day her Dad (Shwet) was on phone n he was just walking around d house  , I see Ashvi taking her mobile (which is not a toy , a real one )to her ears, blabbering n just following daddy’s footsteps .

One word to describe your little one is…

Precious . She is the most precious possession I have ever had:)
What is your child’s favorites…
Animal: Her stuff toy ‘Teddy bear’
Food: French Fries ! Ha she will just gobble dem up
Toy: Picnic Box
Song or Book: Ice cream Song
What was your favorite moment of the session with Crystal Jo?

She is amazing , has  lot of patience  while taking every shot and makes sure it comes out really well ! Cant wait to see them…she s a family friend and have absolutely loved all the pictures she did for us right from my maternity till date… xoxo
