Gina and Thomas were meant to be. Simply put. Their union was written in the stars. Working hard towards a common goal, they have always put the “we” in teamwork.
Growing up in Middletown, New Jersey, Gina went through the public school system and attended college at Stockton University, where she earned her dual-degree in Political Science and Elementary Education. Throughout school, Gina worked incredibly hard at the Lincroft Inn while efficiently juggling her studies. It paid off and she now works in pre-kindergarten at a private school in Atlantic City.
Thomas is a man of trade and passion. Born in Staten Island, he moved to Middletown and attended a private Catholic school for the majority of his youth. He earned his trade in Automotive and worked extremely hard before the Buick plant closed. He then shifted his focus to Computer Science. The couple now resides in their shared apartment in Williamstown, New Jersey.
Tom and Gina met in May 2009 at Gina’s high school junior prom. After a year of non-stop smiles, laughter, and love, Tom decided to take the relationship a little further.
The engagement began almost a decade ago when Thomas dropped to one knee on July 3, 2010. Under the crackling sparkle of showering firecrackers, they knew it was meant to be. It was right in the middle of where they both grew up too!
Shooting this couple and their incredible day was a joy. Their patience and perseverance truly paid off and there is nothing more rewarding than watching a slow burning and responsible love come to full fruition with such a beautiful backdrop. Surrounded by their friends, family, and bountiful love, their union was truly explosive like fireworks.
We wish them nothing but love, light, and laughter for the rest of their day.
Congratulations Gina and Thomas!
