Beautiful day, beautiful couple! Totally in love and it shows. They call each other ‘buddy’; incredibly cute! Rick and Stephanie were married back on July 12 at Ascension Church in Bradley Beach, NJ. The ceremony was followed by an excellent reception at Crystal Point Yacht Club. Here are a couple cute ones to share.

Promotional Pricing ends July 31!

If you’re still thinking about booking me for your 2009 wedding, don’t wait much longer. You can still get in on my May 08 Promotional Pricing if you book before July 31, 2008. My move from Washington to New Jersey has been a good one and I’ve now been here for five months … hard to believe!

I’m so thankful to all of my 2008 brides and grooms who made it possible for me to continue doing what I love … no matter what state I’m in. I’m currently booking 2009 dates, and the calendar is filling up fast.

Give me a call or e-mail now to get in on the Promotional Pricing before it goes up!

Ciao!

Jeanne & Neil - Married!

This was a couple that seemed to have control over the rain. Although dark clouds and sunshine kept changing hands all afternoon, the skies held back just enough for their guests to enter safely into the chapel for the ceremony. A short rain shower later (really, only during the ceremony when everyone was dry and indoors!) Jeanne and Neil were married and the sun shone again! Perfect timing.

When I first heard about the Chapel at the College of St. Elizabeth, I was reminded of my own wedding which took place on the campus of my alma mater. With my vision of a “chapel” in my head, I was so amazed when I walked up to this one! And with that, here are a few of my favorites from Jeanne and Neil’s wedding this past Sunday.


^ The Holy Family Chapel at St. Elizabeth’s. Talk about breath-taking!


^ And then you walk in … wow.


^ Jeanne couldn’t stop smiling through the entire ceremony. So awesome.


^ Jeanne’s mom was a smiler too. :)


^ The happy couple and their getaway car.


^ I love, love, love hydrangeas and roses! Paper-white hydrangeas are especially amazing.


^ Nothing like a bag pipe to herald the arrival of the bride and groom to the reception at the Basking Ridge Country Club.


^ Still smiling! The first dance.


^ Here’s a super fun tradition that Jeanne picked up from her time in New Orleans: The wedding cake Ribbon Pull. At the end of each ribbon is a small trinket/charm that symbolizes a special wish or trait for the gal who pulled it out.


^ Bring on the charms!


^ I love this one … holding cards that tell more of the story behind their trinkets.

Jeanne and Neil, you planned a perfectly unique wedding! It was beautiful.
