Nikki and Mike’s “happily ever after party” was just a couple of months after their Virtual Wedding Ceremony on June 1st after the governor declared virtual weddings to be allowed during COVID. This date is particularly special for Nikki and Mike because they started dating on June 1st, so now this is their forever anniversary. AWWW! They tied the knot and celebrated their love in quarantine together in their home with their closest family and friends via a zoom call. On December 27th, they gathered with their loved ones at 618 for their after party. 618 has a pleasant atmosphere and a great vibe throughout the space. With the new and old, this venue provides guests with a modern yet, rustic atmosphere. The staff at 618 are delightful to work with and very friendly to all their guests dining in. Nikki and Mike wanted their party to be less traditional and loads of fun. Their theme was simplistic, minimalistic, and rustic chic.
It was a BEAUTIFUL Sunday afternoon when Nikki and Mike got together with their closest family and friends to dine in and enjoy everyone’s company with music, love, and laughs. Keeping in mind the COVID regulations and restrictions, Nikki and Mike celebrated their love and had a fantastic time at their happily ever after party. It was an excellent time; with social distancing in place, Chris Campaniolo of Limelight Entertainment kept the fun vibes going all night long with the best music!
“Don’t let your wedding day stress you out, have fun with it!” – Nikki and Mike
Nikki and Mike got ready with their bridal party at the Radisson Hotel in Freehold, NJ. With yummy snacks in their room and their favorite people, they got ready for their wedding celebration! Mike got ready with his four handsome groomsmen. They spent the morning watching a scary movie. HAHA! Nikki got ready with her five beautiful girls. Of course, we had to take a getting ready photo on the bed in their matching PJs! Too much of a cute moment to pass up! The best part – Nikki had confetti to throw up in the air for photos!! How fun!
Nikki and Mike’s Virtual Wedding Ceremony was decorated breathtakingly beautiful, so of course, Nikki went above and beyond with her gorgeous DIY decorations for their after party. With the modern rustic vibes at 618, they decorated the space with wood and greenery, including vines, leaves, flowers, and various colorful metals throughout the room. Nikki and Mike had printed out photographs from their wedding ceremony and placed them in multiple locations around the venue. Nikki created such a loving atmosphere to celebrate their love with their family and friends.
Nikki had her hair styled by Vilda, who styled the most oversized and elegant bun Nikki had ever seen. She accented her beautiful blond hair with a diamond hairpiece. It was gorgeous and stayed intact all night long! Stephanie Nuzzo did a fabulous job with Nikki’s makeup. She went with romantic sparkly eyeshadow, winged eyeliner, and bold lashes. This look fit Nikki perfectly and highlighted her gorgeous features. Mike wore a gray suit jacket with a gray vest and paired it with black dress pants and black suede shoes. To contrast his look, he added a white pocket square and a black bowtie. He looked snazzy!
Can we talk about Nikki and Mike’s first look? I mean, their wedding ceremony first look, when Nikki came down the stairs, was a heart-melting moment, but oh gosh! When Mike turned around to see Nikki this time around, the biggest smile just came across both their faces. They are soooo cute!! WE CANNOT GET ENOUGH OF THESE TWO!
After the first look, we brought out the entire wedding party for some fun wedding party photographs. Nikki had her girls in elegant floor-length black dresses and simple diamond jewelry. These girls looked incredible! The black dresses contrasted perfectly with Nikki’s Rebecca Ingram wedding dress from Cinderella Bridals. Nikki’s gown hugged her body like it was designed just for her. No wonder Mike couldn’t keep his hands off her!! Mike’s groomsmen had on black suits, black suede dress shoes, and black neckties. How handsome are these men, looking very sleek!
The happily ever after party began, and it was time to celebrate with all their love! Chris Campaniolo of Limelight Entertainment bumped up the music and had Nikki and Mike’s guests grooving and singing along to all the tunes. A couple of drinks here and a couple of laughs there, their guests and them had a great time!
Nikki and Mike had a gorgeous wedding on such a beautiful day and now had an awesome after-party on another. Thank you so much for choosing Limelight Entertainment to be a part of your celebration. You both mean a lot to us and deserve all the happiness the world brings. Happy Happily Ever After.
