From The Bride:

Our first introduction was online in 2010! A mutual friend at the time suggested we “friend request” each other and it all blossomed from there. After getting to know a lot about one another we developed a great friendship and in time this led to our first date at Yankee Stadium. Go Yankees!!

After 5 1/2 years, a new house and a brand new puppy our engagement took place Christmas Eve 2015. We have a tradition on this day, every year, we both open one gift. This particular year we were headed to a family dinner and running behind schedule. After loading up the car with gifts I was ready to go! Tommy then wanted to open a gift! (Huh?!!, Now?!!). After some convincing we went back into the house. I knew one of my gifts was a beautiful watch (which I picked out, yay!) and he thought it would be really nice that I wear it to dinner (he didn’t have to tell me twice!!!) I opened my gift, lifted open the watch box and there lied the most gorgeous ring ever! I was so overcome with emotion I didn’t think it was real. That moment was pure joy and love. I will never ever forget that day!!

We knew right off the bat we wanted the day to be soft and romantic with a hint of glitz. We also wanted to add a lot of personal touches. Our details reflected muted colors of pink, champagne, blue and white. My cousin (Life of the Party, Califon, NJ) was our florist and she created the most gorgeous bouquets consisting of hydrangeas, peonies, astilbes and roses. I added two floral hair pins my sister-in-law let me “borrow” into my bouquet as well. So pretty!!! The MOH and bridesmaids dresses were stunning. Pale Pink (MOH) and navy blue (bridesmaids) Adrianna Papell gowns along with the linens gave us our hint of glam.

My husband also makes awesome barn doors and various other rustic furniture pieces for clients (Distressed Outt, NJ). He built the most amazing barn doors for our ceremony!!! Absolutely gorgeous and very special!! He also made other awesome pieces that were placed all around the venue. We received so many compliments on how beautiful every looked.

Our very good friend, Peter Macchia, did the honor of marrying us. Having someone so close to us perform our ceremony was a special moment. For all of our family and friends to witness this incredible day was magical.

We had the most amazing photographer (Brian Wright @ Allred Studio) and Videographer (Kevin Joel @ Sweetheart Cinema). I’m not very comfortable being photographed and on top of that I was being filmed! YIKES!!! I was super nervous. Brian and Kevin worked so incredibly well together and put me at such ease and made me feel so confident. We had a blast with these guys! I give major props to this team. They blended in so well with my family and friends that we forgot they were even there. That’s when the most amazing moments were captured! To feel that confident was incredible.

BEST DAY EVER!!
