A St. Francis Xavier Church Wedding is a beautiful event set in a magnificent place of worship. The Church of St. Francis Xavier is located on 16th Street, between 5th and 6th Avenue, in New York City. The building has a rich history that dates back to 1847, but it was not until 1878 that the church was remodeled and brought to its current glory. The need for the remodeling came from needing more space for the large number of parishioners who found comfort within in the walls of the church in the 1850s and 60s. The St. Francis Xavier Church Wedding of Nicole Aoise and Barry Frankenstein was a perfect event to be held in this grand, iconic space. In this image from Nicole and Barry’s marriage ceremony at the church, the couple can be seen sitting on the altar as the priest who presided over their wedding day gives his homily. The priest is standing off camera, in front of the incredible number of family and friends who came to support the bride and groom and to witness this magical event. Nicole and Barry gaze out at the crowd before them, smiling at the happy faces that look back at them from the pews that line the interior of church. The bride and groom hold hands, both radiant in this moment, as the priest speaks to them and to their loved ones. The priest's homily was focused on the pure, unconditional love that he has seen in the eyes of these two lovely people. Two people who would soon be joined in matrimony, to leave the church as husband and wife.
