[Wedding] Patrice & Josh – The Manor in West Orange, NJ

As I’d mentioned in a previous post, Patrice and Josh’s wedding day started off without a hitch. While Patrice was getting her hair and make-up done, Josh and his groomsmen were still in recovery mode from a festive rehearsal dinner just the night before. Understandably, that morning would be a serene affair, albeit a light-hearted one. We were just getting started; part two of their celebrations would take place later that evening at The Manor in West Orange, NJ!
